Is the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2 worth it?

What are the differences between Phantom 4 Pro V1 and V2?

Basically, the only major difference in the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2 is the use of OcuSync instead of DJI’s Lightbridge technology.  What does this mean?  It means that the video signal is transmitted using a different technology with less latency and able to transmit wirelessly.
Now you can use your DJI Googles without a wire connecting to the remote for video transmission.  Pretty cool feature.  You can also use more than one monitor, it now can be used with dual monitors.
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2 also is slightly lighter by 20 grams.  No huge gain here but I guess every little bit helps for longer flight times.
Finally, they have designed a low noise propeller (9455S) similar to the Mavic Pro.  They have reduced the noise of the props by a 4db reduction.  They have also changed the ESC’s to new FOC ESC Drivers which control the motors for even greater stability.

Will I be trading in my Phantom 4 Pro V1 for V2?  Probably not.

If I didn’t already have the DJI Phantom 4 Pro V1 I would definitely buy the V2 for the least amount of video latency in real time.  Also using the Googles without a wire is a great improvement.  The fewer wires the better.  Since the camera is the same no benefit for picture quality and that’s the most important thing to me.

Stay tuned as I believe DJI will be releasing the Mavic Pro 2 and perhaps a Phantom 5 in the near future.  So if you have the patience it may be worth waiting a month or so for the Phantom 5 or Mavic 2.
