DJI Phantom 4 Unboxing – First Look

The day has come, our brand new Phantom 4 arrived. We are ready to take a peek at the latest Phantom released, with our DJI Phantom 4 Unboxing. Let us show you what to expect in the box, and take a closer look at all of the updated parts of the Phantom 4. If you would like to compare this Phantom 4 Unboxing with the previous Phantom 3 Professional Unboxing you can do that here. First Up: The Packaging The Phantom 4 comes shipped in a double walled cardboard outer box, which directly inside of it houses the retail packaging. Cardboard box used for shipment Front of retail box Back of retail box First peek inside the retail packaging, yay no more cardboard innards! The Foam Case The new foam case is a welcome change from the old cardboard packaging used in the previous Phantom versions. The case tides people over until they get a dedicated Phantom 4 Backpack. Foam case interior of retail packaging New lock to securely close the foam case Open the case by pulling out the lever, twisting counter-clockwise 90 degrees and ensuring the sticker doesn’t cause the case to stay glued shut. Lift carefully and viola, the Phantom 4 emerges. First peek at the newly designed shell of the Phantom 4 featuring the new shinier finish. The redesigned quick-release propeller mounts are also visible. The lid of the foam case can be neatly folded back on its own hinge. Here we see the various compartments and the components that are delivered with the Phantom 4. You can fit at least three batteries in the foam case, one in the quadcopter and two along the left side of it. A closer look at the new quick-release propeller mounts. On this one a silver ringed propeller will be mounted, but more on that later. Here the Power Button was pushed to check the battery power level. Two solid lines mean the battery has a factory charge of 37.5-50%. Exactly what we expect from a Lithium-Polymer (LiPo) battery in a factory charge state. Always ensure you charge fully before taking flight. It’s best to charge the same day or if you have to the night before. Warning stickers for the new quick-release propellers. Here a “Silver” motor for a silver propeller. The black motors have black dots on top of the white plastic quick-release mounts. There you mount the black propellers. Ensure you remove the warning stickers before your maiden flight. With the Phantom 4 removed from the foam case and the propeller bag also removed you can see the 100watt charger on the right side of the case....
