The Phantom 4, DJI’s newest drone, can essentially fly itself. While previous models of the drone have used GPS to track subjects, the Phantom Four actually recognizes your 3D image and can follow you while you’re zipping down the slopes or riding a bike. In addition to being able to recognize and follow you or whatever subject you highlight on the controller interface, this tiny aircraft can avoid obstacles that get in the way of its flightpath automatically.

Using four cameras, two in the front, two below, and one 4k video camera mounted on a gimbal, this drone sees the world in 3D and adjusts accordingly. This is good news for novice fliers. The model’s autonomous features lower the learning curve a good deal, making it so you can get the shot you want without having to spend hours and hours learning how to get seamless video. If you’re a seasoned pro and love manually flying your drone however, these units still allow for more advanced piloting modes. DJI will be retailing these for just around $1400. [Purchase]
