They’re the most popular professional drones on the planet, packed with high-end features and functionality, design attributes, electronic components, and features such as the direction obstacle avoidance systems for five directions, front, rear, port, starboard and underside, making one of the safest drones in the air today. These sensors actively scan the environment around the drone and allow it to autonomously avoid obstacles like trees, buildings, and anything else you might encounter during flight.
 
These Drones also use all-new hardware with a 1-inch image sensor — which is four times the size as what’s used in the other drones on the market, these cameras can shoot 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, and still images at up to 20 megapixels. They feature an aperture control and a mechanical shutter.
