You mean the gimbal transport lock? Looks same as regular P4.

How right you were - the camera on the P4P is what I want

The P4P+ is a Android device so no AutoPilot / MapPilot / Airnest / FpvCamera / DronePan / Screen Share etc etc etc so for me the P4P+ Screen is a waste of money - but it sure looks good.

Might cancel my order for the mavic as much as I like the size.
and I Probably will not the only one

..for an extra $300. Nice idea, but the price is pretty steep for a single-use screen.

That part aside, the P4 PRO looks excellent. Those of us clamoring for better image quality in the Phantom package ought to be satisfied now. Finally, a reason to upgrade from P3 Pro.

Why oh why could they not have made this in that gorgeous Inspire 2 color... Or even Mavic grey.

This is all I can find to complain about!

I do not think it means none of these features. It means android will now have better support. Even on DJI's end.

Now we know what to expect in that department for Mavic 2 .

The one thing the built-in screen has going for it is being almost twice the brightness of the vast majority of phones/tablets, which I should imagine (hope) reduces the need for sun-shields

That whooshing sound you hear is the length of the Mavic pre-order queue shortening rapidly

Seriously though I like what has happened here, there is now a very significant gap between the P4Pro and Mavic so there is a good argument for having both, to get the portability when you need it, or the excellent camera when the size is less of an issue.

Only thing I can guess - is that there is not a real advantage at this point. Anything DJI adds to take advantage of the tablet can also be done with a separate tablet or phone.

BUT, remember - a non-cellular apple tablet may not have GPS...so you lose that ability, right??

It's not like the non-tablet version is designed for a lesser market.....more like three things, IMHO.

1. Apple is really going to be a big seller of these - and they like people using their devices.
2. Some need and like very large tablets
3. DJI wanted to provide a "reference" platform....so the variable of different devices could be taken out of the picture

Oddly the USA site shows no price difference between the original and the new pack...
