HOW TO EDIT PHANTOM 4 PRO VIDEOS IN H265 ?
The H265 codec promises superior to H264 quality for the same bitrate (about 50%), it means a Phantom 4 Pro video recorded in H265 to 100Mbps bitrate would correspond to about 200mbps in H264 very efficient codec but is VERY HEAVY in the encoding / decoding.
This aspect discourages its use on low-end PC as it would slow down the workflow,not all yet support fully the H265 , Youtube does not support h265 is useless to send a video of Phantom 4 Pro in H265 on youtube because is not recognized.Adobe Premiere CC 2017 recognizes the video of the phantom 4 pro in H265 but only in mp4 format, so if you want to use it with Premiere remember to change the format to .mov to .mp4.

the max frame rate at 1080p is 120fps which is the same as the current DJI Phantom 4 but the bit rate has increased substantially from 60Mbps to 80Mbps. However the new H.265 compression format which is much more efficient but more processor intensive does not handle frame rates higher than 60p. So for anything at 120fps you will have to use H.264 which should be ok and it is more compatible with current editing systems.
