Unboxing: A Closer Look at P4P Obsidian

Let's take a closer look at everything you get when you receive your cool, new Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian.

The Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian retains the same shake-resistant foam case of the Phantom Series.

What's in the box?

Taking out everything from the case, you get the aircraft body, Remote Controller, SD card, battery charger, USB cable, USB adaptor, two sets of propellers, and the user manual.

The new Obsidian color is on everything but the cables! This sleek matte finish has a satisfyingly smooth, grainy feel.

Just like the original Phantom 4 Pro, Obsidian's quick-release propellers are spring-locked.

With all black propellers mounted on, this Phantom looks intimidating!


Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian is the first drone in the Phantom lineup that comes in a dark hue. With such an eye-catching color, it's not hard to imagine how it looks while flying outdoors on a sunny day.

The aircraft is outfitted with sensors all over. The P4P Obsidian retains the whole obstacle avoidance system from P4P, sensing obstacles in five directions, and avoiding them in four. 

Obsidian's new electroplated and anti-fingerprint coated magnesium gimbal brings a stronger visual impact.
