DJI ends Phantom 4 production
According to suasnews.com DJI has terminated the production of the iconic Phantom 4. This was probably the shortest lifespan of all the DJI products. They released it on March 1st 2016 and terminated production on 18th of January. It’s been in the production for only 10 month or to be exact 322 days.
Here is the message DJI sent to the dealers today:
This is an update as of this morning on DJI Products.
DJI Mavic Pro and Mavic Pro Combo Although production is releasing more and more crafts, DJI have announced that they are withholding all production to service their own clients on DJI.COM until the end of January 2017.
The end of January 2017 is Chinese New Year, where we can expect a 2 to 3 week break in production, so it does not look good for us. At this stage, Please warn your customers that the Stock of the Mavic Pro and the Mavic Pro Combo is severely limited, but we hope that by March 2017 DJI get to the point where they have sufficient production.
DJI Phantom 4 The Phantom 4 production is terminated. We still have some stock left.
DJI Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional The Phantom 3 Advanced and Professional production is terminated.
Phantom 4 Pro and Pro Plus Once DJI get the Mavic Pro production sorted out, the consumer drones will be limited to the Mavic Pro, the Phantom 4 Pro and the Phantom 4 Pro Plus.
Does this mean Phantom 4 is leaving the market? Probably not. There is probably enough stock to supply customers for some time, but no new P4s will be produced.
Just few days ago DJI stopped the production of Phantom 3 Series.
