The DJI Mavic Pro is DJI’s first foldable drone to be released. Now there are plenty of small drones available on the market that are easy to take anywhere with you but nothing comes close to the quality and performance of the Mavic Pro . When first launched it did look like it might have some strong competition from the GoPro Karma which also looked to be a great product in the portable drone category and that was where all the initial comparisons were but once the recall of the Karma happened there was no longer any real competition. Although the Karma is now available to buy again it will take a lot for the Karma to recover from that set back.
The DJI Mavic Pro is one of the most sophisticated flying cameras that DJI has ever produced including 4 vision sensors and a 4K camera shooting 30 frames per second, 12mp images and stabilised by a 3-axis mechanical gimbal. Using DJI’s FlightAutonomy system it can pick out obstacles as far away as 49ft (15m) ahead meaning it can fly at its top speed of 22mph (36kph) whilst not bumping into things and the flight time is also very good at 27 mins. The Mavic Pro folds up so neatly that you can actually fit in your pocket although this might prove slightly uncomfortable at times. The remote control is also pocket sized and uses DJI’s new OcuSync transmission technology with a range of 4.3 miles (7km) and has full HD 1080p x 720p video streaming.
So whilst being small and extremely accessible the DJI Mavic Pro is also a very powerful piece of kit and it is this that makes it a far more everyday product for use by beginners and pros, suiting the more casual user and adventurer. This is really where is stands as the top choice over a Phantom.
