    In literature and posts available and in the few videos published, I haven't seen any mention about whether DJI eliminated or modified the CSC to avoid the somewhat rare but occasional pilot error due to this feature.

    Anyone see any mention of this?

    Seems that would have made sense considering the addition of the 'sport' feature geared for racing 'like' flying.

    Also if this photo is accurate, it doesn't appear as if existing ND lens filters will fit...maybe add that to all the extras you have to get over the $1,399 base price?

    Same CSC function as all their other models.

    We won't really know until they release the Phantom 4 manual, but I cannot see them changing this now.

    It is not changed.

    CSC is exactly the same as the P3.

    The Phantom 4 lens cover is removable (you can see it clearly in the unboxing videos). To me the camera lens of the P4 & P3 appear to be the same diameter, so as long as DJI has not changed the threading, then existing ND lens covers would fit. Hopefully an earlier adopter will check this out and let us know.

    It's so befitting that the first P4 concern should be about CSC. Stating from where we left off..

    I've only seen the German guy unboxing video. On closer look I can see the seam that wasn't visible on this photo...but it would be nice to see someone actually screw one on.

    in all fairness, it was just the person on the chat box on the DJI site but she checked with her superior and seemed quite sure. I would say that makes it about 95% to me.

    From what I've heard, CSC is pretty much universal on all UAVs. Kinda like a steering wheel and a brake pedal.

    Does it still have Lightbridge? And can it fly just like the P3 if you don't desire to use all the Tap dancing mode?

    The P4 stated range is the same as the current model P3 Pro/Advanced models (5K - 3.1 miles). I believe originally the P3 Pro/Advanced range was listed as 2K. Not sure what DJI did in later models to boost the range 2.5x?

    You have to be in a RF-clean area like over water or farmland.

    Yes I eventually plan on getting a P4 but I am holding off for now hoping for a black model.
