How Much Weight Can a DJI Phantom 4 Drone Lift?
If you ever wondered how much dead weight this drone can carry, we have you covered
There are but a few brands in the market who truly excel at what they do and we’re proud to call DJI our partners in commerce, because we’re such fans of their products. We’ve been amazed at the interest people have had in our DJI catalogue: customers come in and tell us they have heard incredible stuff about that brand and that they’d be thrilled to try out any of their products.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro lineup has been a resounding success in our store, as most people that come in to purchase a drone ask specifically for one of the models we have available. Even though its price is a bit elevated, as it caters to more experienced pilots as well as professional content creators and so on, it continues to perform very well each month.
There’s a lot to unpack when it comes to a drone’s attributes and capabilities. For instance, DJI drones are very well known by photographers and independent filmmakers because of their image stabilization technology, which allow creators to film beautifully framed aerial shots without loss of detail by way of the drone’s motion.
But drones are not only used exclusively for that. Farmers use drones to pick up and deliver production element packages in their production lines and delivery services use drones to send purchases to customers who have opted for remote delivery to avoid spending time dealing with the reception of their items.
These notions beg the question: are DJI drones suited for this type of work? How much weight can they carry? Keep on reading to know more.
Drones like DJI Phantom 4 RKT today fulfill multiple functions in agriculture, surveillance and monitoring of crops, pests and pesticide application, among others. It also represents multiple benefits, such as precise, localized application in hard-to-reach areas, less exposure of the applicator, water and time savings. This generates an increase in the farmer's productivity.
These notions raise the following question: are DJI drones suitable for this type of work? How much weight can they carry? and what tasks can they complete? Read on to learn more.
DJI is put to the test
Reviewed by popular media outlets such as TechRadar and Dronezon, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V 2.0 has caught everyone’s attention for its incredible features. The truth is everyone agrees this is a creative tool more than a pick-up-delivery assistant. There isn’t a single hint of this drone having been used by reviewers to know how much weight it can carry.
In and of itself, the drone weighs 3.03 pounds (1.37 Kg), including its battery and propellers. This explains why even though it is a great source of hi-res stable images, it can only fly for 30 minutes.
Adding more weight to it would put a strain on its capacity for a sustained flight, as well as on its battery, so we would advise not performing any kind of carry-up tasks with the Phantom 4 Pro, as it is not designed for this.
