DJI Phantom 3 4K Drone

The DJI Phantom 3 4K delivers 30fps 4K footage at a 60Mbps compression rate, which is the same as the Phantom 3 Professional. However, the Phantom 3 4K costs $999 while the Phantom 3 Professional goes for $1,200.

Here's the big difference. The Phantom 3 4K relies on Wi-Fi to transmit video back to the controller, limiting both the resolution (480p) and streaming range. The Phantom 3 Professional, and several other DJI drones, use the company's LightBridge system to stream video feet back to the screen of a table or phone.
