LIXI Studio Tests DJI 4 Tracking


In this fun and often times humorous video by LIXI Studios they put the DJI Phantom 4's auto tracking to the test. While they feel the tracking and crash avoidance technology is amazing, they say "they don't quite live up to the hype for all scenarios".

What they found:

- inconsistent tracking, being above and facing downward was best
- anti-collision / auto-stopping feature works "for the most part", auto stopping only worked well when moving extremely slow
- features work so well SOMETIMES that you become overly confident and could end up destroying your gear -- Stay Alert!
- better build, image more stable, longer battery life, tracking features work well

To watch their full review (it's worth the watch) check it out below.
