The DJI Mavic Pro Review
Welcome to the DJI Mavic Pro Review! I’ve had my eyes on the DJI Mavic Pro for a while. Let’s find out what’s so great about it!
What is it?
DJI is a famous Chinese company that is reckoned to be the Apple of the consumer drone industry. They make the best drones, which are easy to fly, with a great set of features, brilliantly designed, technologically advanced, although priced a little on the higher side.
DJI Mavic Pro is an impressive little drone, the smallest in the DJI line-up and priced reasonably at $999. It gives you great flight time, controlled by an excellent remote control, long range, decent enough flight time, and terrific camera. It is also very stable in the air, fast and responsive. It is small in size and weighs only 743g.
Who is it for?
DJI Mavic Pro is for everyone who has an interest in flying drones. It is a quality quadcopter that can be used by everyone, from beginners to intermediate drone pilots, and also by experienced pros.
How it helped?
This is easily the most portable drone from the DJI stables and I enjoyed flying it completely. It is much smaller than the DJI Phantoms, but comes with a similar set of features. The camera can shoot pictures from a range of 4.3 miles. This drone can go up for as high as 17,000 feet. Impressive by any yardstick!
DJI Mavic Pro Features
Build Quality – This drone is small in size, but built with a strong and sturdy frame. It has a very tough hull and does not get damaged easily.
Design – I love the intuitive design of this drone. I love how portable it is and how it can be folded into the size of a small walkie talkie should you want to. There is so much detailing in the design that is impressive.
Battery Life – This drone has a flight time of 27 minutes, which is very good given its small size.
Performance – This drone is very fast and agile and flies at 40 miles per hour. It can fly 100 meters in just 5.3 seconds. It comes with the usual autonomous flight modes that you will get with the DJI Phantom series such as Follow Me mode, Tripod Mode, Course Lock Mode, Terrain Follow mode and Home Lock Mode.
Camera – This drone comes with a very good camera which shoots videos in 4K, takes pictures at 12.7 megapixels and is supported by a 3-axis gimbal. It is not as good as the camera you get with DJI Phantom 4, but decent enough.
DJI Mavic Pro: Pros and Cons
#1: Very much portable
#2: Shoots videos at 4k and captures pictures at 12 MP
#3: Good flight time
#4: Many autonomous flight modes
#5: Fast and nimble.
#1: Camera not great at taking pictures in dim light.
Why I recommend it?
To begin with, I like that the DJI Mavic Pro is priced at $999. Not the cheapest, but certainly more affordable than the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. It has the same set of features, autonomous flight modes and build quality as Phantom Pro, but is a much smaller quadcopter which is super compact, far more portable and easier to handle. It is a real pleasure to fly outside, especially on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Try it!
I wish you all the best, and remember that if you have any questions or comments you can post them in the comments section at the bottom of any blog post. It’s great to hear from you.
