DJI is celebrating the Chinese New Year with a brightly colored, special edition Phantom 4. The drone features bright red body work and propeller blades, which may prove easier to see against a bright sky than the regular white Phantom 4. The drone and controller also feature vivid artwork from designer and illustrator Martin Sati, with a phoenix as the symbolic centerpiece.

Pricing starts at $1,199. The special edition drone will only be sold during Chinese New Year, so now's the time to order one if it strikes your fancy.

n celebration of Chinese New Year, DJI invited renowned illustrator and designer Martin Sati to customize the Phantom 4, adding colors and his imagination to this flagship DJI product. Sati’s design features the phoenix as the centerpiece, a symbol of good fortune and happiness in Chinese mythology. He also drew inspiration from the four basic elements of nature – air, fire, water and earth – and reflected each of these elements in his design.

The Phantom 4 Chinese New Year Edition houses the same on-board intelligence that make piloting and shooting great shots simple through features like its Obstacle Sensing System, ActiveTrack and TapFly functionality. With 4K video recording, 3-axis camera stabilization, advanced computer vision and sensing technology, aerial imaging has never been so easy. The Phantom 4 also has DJI’s signature Lightbridge video transmission system onboard, allowing users to see what their camera sees in HD and in real-time at a distance up to 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). The Phantom 4 can achieve up to 28 minutes of flight time.

The Phantom 4 Chinese New Year Edition’s U.S. retail price is USD1,199 and will be sold exclusively at Apple Stores, DJI Flagship Stores (except Korea), DJI Online Store and Tmall DJI Store. The product will start shipping from January 23.
