[MUSIC] It's time to break out your inner sky [UNKNOWN] Let's check out the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the DJI Inspire 2. The Phantom 4 Pro build upon it's predecessor with sensors in five directions. Including in the rear of the drone. The top speed while using optical avoidance has been increased to 31 miles per hour, while the sport mode allows for bursts up to 45 miles per hour. There's an SD card slot in the controller now, so you can check out what you captured on the go. And the camera shoots in 4K, at either. P or thirty frame per second. As for the controller, DJI decided to offer a built in screen option that's brighter than most tablets on the market and they also claim it will lessen latency and interference issue. As for the Inspire two, it's been completely re-engineered from the ground up. It looks like the first generation inspired, but DJI said its taken tips from filmmakers and other operators to maximize efficiency. The shell is now made of magnesium alloy, it has dual battery chambers for extended life time and the camera can now shoot in both four k and five point two k. It's also really fast. The Inspire 2's top speed is 67 miles per hour. And there's a separate first person view camera mounted on the front, so that a drone operator can always keep an eye on where the Inspire 2 is flying, while the drone cinematographer can separately control the cinematic shots they need on the main Camera. Both the Inspire 2 and the Phantom 4 Pro are available for preorder. The Phantom 4 Pro starts at $1,499 and ships in late November. While the Inspire 2 starts at $2,999 and ships in either early December 2016 or January 2017 depending on the model.
