    Personally I think it looks like s#!t ... Maybe it has good specs but I don't like the look of it at all ?
    Looks cheap to me ?

    Looks good to me ... P2/3 looks cheap to me like an unrefined prototype on narrow stick like (read weak) legs, and bolted on box underneath.

    The one shown in the picture above looks like evolved and more refined product. Stronger, wider base legs that streamline from the body. Integrated underbody sensors, no more bolted on look. Stronger elongated arms of the right profile to counter the prop forces, and of narrower areodynamic profile ... that togather with raised motors might create stronger lift and cleaner aerodynamics.

    BTW, do I see some additional sensors facing forward at the base of front legs?

    It's streamlined so it will go faster and get better gas mileage.

    What you're seeing Is actually the P3 prototype.

    Others have noted the appearance of what might be some type of collision sensors on leg mounts as well.

    Too bad ... as it seems better suited than my P3 for the task of flying and landing anywhere.

    Maybe it was.

    Why can't it be the P4 now?

    It looks like the legs are part of the lower shell, less modular= higher repair cost

    DJI will take care of that with an firmware update.

    Photos grainy but disagree.
    I feel I see fastener and seam between the shell and leg(s).

    I like it! Due to stiff 2016 competition in the drone market certain features are expected to be standard across all high end drones such as a 360 degree rotating camera and retractable legs, longer range and obstacle avoidance.

    The P4 drone certainly has the potential for such new features.

    I could see DJI sticking with the entry level and pro models of a Phantom 4.

    My prediction is that the entry level model of the P4 will have the gimbal of the P3 4K and camera and vision+ system.

    The mid level will have the the 3 addition of the 360 4K camera, retractable legs and lightbridge.

    The top level will have the addition of a brand new super long range lightbridge technology and include the addition of sonar obstacle avoidance (forward only).

    I can only wish!

    I agree with the gimbal !! Even the p3 vs the p2 is substantially tougher !!
