DJI Phantom4 (1)

The DJI Phantom 4 features a number of new onboard intelligence features with an Obstacle Sensing System, Active Tracking, and TapFly. The Obstacle Sensing System intelligently avoids collisions. Tap to Fly lets you simply set the destination point for the drone, with the drone taking care of smoothly flying there whilst avoiding obstacles. Active Tracking can set the drone to follow subjects, for example if they are running or cycling. 

The 12 megapixel camera features manual controls and raw shooting, with improved optics, and there is a new gimbal that is designed to give smoother video recording. There is also a "Return to home" function, as well as a new sport mode for advanced flyers, with up to 45mph maximum speed.

this has a dedicated camera and you cant attach any other camera, the phantom 2 allowed you to attach a go-pro, but it wont handle the size and weight of anything bigger
