So you just purchased your brand new shiny and glossy DJI Phantom 4. You are waiting anxiously and impatiently for the delivery person to pull up and knock on your door. I can understand your excitement. I will be too. We are here to give you some ideas of what the best accessories for the DJI Phantom 4 you might need.
But have you thought of the extras that you might need to give you a better experience flying your new toy? Have you thought of extra batteries? Getting the best tablet for the display? Extra props for just to be safe?
Let’s get to it.
List of the best accessories for the DJI Phantom 4.
- Smartphone / Tablet
1. Which Smartphone or Tablet Should I Get for the DJI Phantom 4?
You definitely need to use a mobile device in order to fully operate the DJI Phantom 4. The DJI Phantom 4 works at its best when paired up with the DJI Go app. Now this app is dual mobile platform compatible and if you have been living under a rock its iOS and Android.
Based on the dimension of the DJI Phantom 4 controller, the iPad mini 4 is the best tablet to use as the display for the DJI Go app. You should also get the cellular version so you can get the best internet access.
2. You need to get some extra batteries.
With a estimated flight time of 28 minutes, it might seem a long time. However when you are in the heat of the moment of flying and filming you forget how fast the time will well “fly”. Remember you won’t be able to charge your single batteries in time to fly again and don’t forget you will be “outside” and possibly without a power source. Therefore I recommend you get 1 or more DJI Phantom 4 Batteries.
3. Consider getting more propellers.
Even with the best obstacle avoidance technology in the world you cannot avoid the fact that accidents can happen and it is impossible to say that you won’t crash. It’s not a bad idea to get more propellers.
