The 4 Pro is protected on almost all sides. It has front and rear visual sensors, infrared sensors on both sides, and a sensor on its belly to guard against landing on uneven ground.

No, that's not a phone attached to the controller. It's actually a bright display that's integrated just above the control sticks.
