DJI Mavic Pro
The DJI Mavic Pro is so small and smart, it feels like DJI has jumped to warp speed nine. This tiny quadcopter packs in tech from past models without sacrificing anything we love about them - including its fantastic features! And before you even fold up the rotors for storage or sling your drone into a bag: there's no clearer indication that this thing will fly forever than watching one unfold itself right before me...
The new DJI Mavic pro is tiny, agile and powerful. With a gimbal-stabilized camera it's capable of taking photos that are as clear from above or below - perfect for those who want to make their mark on earth with an aerial view!
DJI’s latest drone is small enough to fit in your bag, but don't let its compact size fool you - this thing can fly! Flip out the wings and start motors automatically as soon it takes off. Build quality feels sturdy too; with a bit more abuse-tear than some of our other favorite drones on hand (including GoPro's Karma), there was no evidence that DJI had made any compromises when designing their newest model."
The gunmetal grey colour scheme of this drone makes it appear to be something that could kill, too. It has the wings and capabilities for mischief but with all these features you don’t need any special transportation box- just bring your regular bag! The camera is protected by bubble dome so there's no need worry about breaking them while on move or exposed in bright sunlight – unless...you want lens flare pictures instead?
The whole thing looks and feels brilliantly simple, but don’t let that fool you: there’s some serious technology upgrades from the Mavic Phantom 4.
Keeping your new Mavic stable in the air is important, and it needs cameras - lots of them. It has five on board: one at 12MP resolution for video recording; four 2K ultra high-resolution ones which provide obstacle avoidance so you don't end up Smashed Topieces because tyou were too busy trying to take a drone selfie! Forward facing cams also detect walls or other potential hazards while flying forward (and stop), but only when using this mode..
Keep track with ActiveTrack
What if you could fly with your favorite football team? That's what the Active Track feature does! It lets me track my subject automatically, and uses computer vision to identify objects. The DJI Mavic Pro has really improved this compared to when it first showed up in a video from earlier last year - now I had two players running around trying not only score but also avoid being tackled by each other while they did so...and both were clearly visible thanks again active tracking
The Terrain Follow mode will make hiking and mountain biking more fun! The drone can go up hills with you, just like in real life. It also does circle tracking so it’s not difficult for new pilots to do these tricky moves manually but there is a button press away if they want access right away too- perfect balance between functionality and ease of useTerrain mode
The DJI Mavik drone is an amazing piece of equipment for any aspiring photographer. It has some great features that make shooting more convenient and easier than ever before, such as tripod mode or higher sensitivity with controller settings! I found it easiest to use in small spaces like my bedroom while getting those cinematic shots you can only get from above ground level—especially at night when there was less light pollution nearby (but don't worry about me trying this out because even though three seconds might not seem long enough on paper...).
The Mavic has the most agile flight I’ve ever experienced in my life. It can reach speeds of 65 kmph, and it's surprisingly nimble for such an large drone - but again you're weighting yourself with a lot more responsibility when using this mode so make sure your afraid-of nothing else before turning on sporty modes! You'll get about one hour worth out if juice though because these batteries recharging times are really slow (but thankfully they come cheap).
DJI has delivered the perfect controller for Mavics. The pocket sized remote unfolds to about as big of a PS4 kicked around, with built in microUSB cable and slots on both sides where you can fit your phone or tablet if needed! There's even twin sticks that take care flight control thanks just enough room so they're easy reach while still being responsive without feeling cramped at all times--plus dials dedicated specifically towards camera adjustment which is great because no matter what kind video project I'm working
The new DJI Ocusync system is a massive improvement over its predecessor, with improved range and solid performance. I was able to fly mine while surrounded by five other Mavics without worrying about interference or poor transmission quality! It's amazingly comprehensive seeing how small it actually goes-you won't even notice that there aren’t any additional controls available for customization on your flight experience unless you want them badly enough... but some people may find themselves wanting more flexibility in this regard considering what else contemporary drones offer these days when paired up against each other.
The DJI Go app puts two virtual sticks onscreen, so it controls in pretty much the same way. You don't have to mess about tilting your phone either - I've tried gyroscope flying on other drones and trust me this is better! Because you're using Wi-Fi instead of Ocusync range takes a major hit but that's hardly surprising considering their 70mAh battery only lasts around 50 meters altitude wise or 80+meters away from takeoff point before losing connection completely.
It’s a handy feature that should come in useful when you don't have a a lot of room in your bag, or when you just want to take a quick aerial snap and happen to have the DJI Mavic Pro handy..
Shake-Free 4K Video, Quality Camera
And if that’s not enough, there's more! The camera is an absolute beauty. It shoots in DNG RAW as well as JPEG and can do 4K video at 30fps – all with a 12MP sensor (1/2 3 inch), which means you'll be able to make adjustments for exposure or focus later on without any hassle whatsoever thanks
DJI Mavic Pro Verdict
DJI has not sacrificed any features or quality to make their newest drone smaller. In fact, it's got more tech than you'll find inside the Phantom 4!
The folding arms work perfectly and so does matching compact controller - both are brilliant additions that add utility for on-the ground use as well in air flights where durability matters most.
The Mavic is a great drone that packs in all the features you could hope for, and more. It’s not cheap though- it will set your heart racing when flying around town or hitting up those quick racetracks - but if maneuverability is what matters most to you then there really isn't any other option worth considering!
Want a highly portable, foldable drone that shoots professional quality 4K video? You just found it. The DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter will blow you away with features and performance you normally would expect only on bigger, more expensive drones. DJI packs a lot of capability — and convenience — into a mere 1.6 pounds.
When you buy a DJI Mavic foldable drone from Unmanned, you’re getting a truly affordable professional drone. Don’t let Mavic Pro’s fun factor or its diminutive size fool you: The Mavic Pro is no toy … unless, of course, you want it to be. But when you need it to be, it’s a dependable, highly capable flying camera — every time, all the time.
It generates professional-quality 4K video at 30 frames per second and high-clarity 12MP stills. The camera is stabilized by a DJI three-axis gimbal.

Why Mavic Pro?
Let’s face it: You don’t want just any foldable drone. You want a DJI foldable drone. After all, DJI is the drone industry leader. No folding full-feature drone is more affordable than the DJI Mavic foldable drone.
Compact size. High performance. Reliability. Maneuverability. Speed. Brilliant video and sharp stills. The best gimbals in the business.
Mavic Pro’s Easy Setup
Getting your Mavic Pro ready to fly is fast and easy. Unfold the four arms until they click in place. The front arms have landing gear already attached. Start your drone and the propellers will unfold automatically. (You’ll have to snap on the upper propellers before you fly it the first time.) Snap your smartphone onto the handheld remote controller, and power up. After calibrating the compass, which is a cinch, you’re off.
Precise Control, Safe Flight
Attach your smartphone to the pocket-sized remote controller in seconds. Fold-out arms on the remote controller hold it securely. After downloading an app, you can take a quick flight or set up a shoot flying the Mavic Pro using only your phone.
Extra sensors ensure a safe flight.
Dual IMUs and compasses on the Mavic Pro make positioning reliable. Your Mavic has GPS, GLONASS and ultrasonic range finders. Each key sensor on the Mavic Pro is duplicated. That means that if one sensor fails, the backup sensor kicks in. You’ll get where you’re going and back to base as if nothing happened.
Four vision sensors help you avoid obstacles as close as 2 feet and as far away as 49 feet. And that 49-foot range can be at speeds up to 22 mph. If you get too close to an object, your Mavic Pro will stop — automatically. It uses its vision sensors to see in three dimensions and protect you from unexpected dangers, even if there’s no ground close for it to sense and even if its GPS signals are blocked by trees. Yes, you’re the pilot. Flight Autonomy is your first officer; it gives you and your drone all the information needed for a successful flight.
Hover precisely and land almost exactly where you took off with Flight Autonomy. Precision Landing can even tell if the landing site is uneven.
TapFly points your drone in the right direction, Terrain Follow safely maintains position off the ground. Following a subject on a road or trail with changing terrain is a snap with Terrain Follow. And safe Return to Home avoids obstacles on the way back to base, switching on automatically if your battery runs low..
See what your camera sees, almost instantaneously, from as far away as 4.3 miles. DJI Go tells you everything you need to know onscreen — where you are, your altitude, your battery reserve, what’s in front of you.
You need to see what you’re shooting and exactly where you’re going. The Mavic Pro streams a hi-def view using OcuSync. It streams in 1080p when your drone is nearby, and 720p when it’s farther away — up to 4.3 miles.
All the while, your Mavic is recording in stunning 4K. Want to be even more immersed in the flying experience? Unmanned has available FPV Goggles that will truly make you believe you’re flying. Control the drone and camera with taps on the side of the goggles, or control the drone with head movements alone. You can even share the experience by putting the goggles on a friend while you fly your Mavic by the remote controller.
You can also use OcuSync to download video and stills while recording additional images. And don’t worry about interference. OcuSync chooses the best frequency available and uses it.
Shake-Free 4K Video, Quality Camera
Aerial video is best in 4K, with more than four times the pixels of 1080p. The Mavic Pro captures 4K video at up to 30fps, stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal.
Mavic has ActiveTrack, which locks onto your subject — or onto you, if you want.
Don’t worry about having no dedicated photographer to help you. Just communicate with your Mavic Pro. It does what you tell it to through your remote controller. Remember, with streaming video, you’ll see what your camera does. Choose the mode that’s best for your shoot:
Your Mavic will follow your subject, either in front or behind. Give it the command, and it will even circle your subject. Video recording a wedding? Trace Pro lets you focus on the bride and groom and fly backwards — perfectly level — while it records them leaving the church. No more bending low to get the shot, no more walking backwards.
Hiking a trail, canoeing or exploring a fascinating site? Profile is perfect. It will lock on and follow you, too, flying beside you and capturing all the action. Watching your dog pick up a scent and follow it? The Mavic will tag along, right beside him.
This mode isn’t quite magic, but the results are pure fantasy. Lock on your subject and get adventurous. Fly up, down, all around as you look for the most beguiling angles. Your subject, no matter how high or wide you fly, will stay in the frame.
Slow down. Not the frame rate, but how fast your drone is moving. Tripod mode orders your Mavic Pro flying camera to make very measured moves — slow and steady — so you can capture every nuance of your scene.
For 12MP stills, adjust the shutter speed between 8 seconds for a time exposure and action-stopping 1/8000 second. Shoot in 3/5/7 fps bursts.
Your Mavic Pro is even smart enough to read your hand gestures. Form your hands into the frame command and your Mavic Pro will take an aerial selfie.
Mavic Pro records on a video card; a 16MB card is included, and it’s easy to buy more storage capacity. Shoot automatically, or be the photographer you know you can be by manually controlling aperture, shutter speed, ISO and file format. Mavic opens the door to creativity — and flies right through.
Fly Longer on Intelligent Flight Batteries
As we said, Mavic Pro is fun, but it’s no toy. Mavic Pro can fly in real-world conditions for about 21 minutes — not the mere 10 or 15 typical of small drones. It’s powered by a quick-charge 3S Intelligent Flight Battery. It really is smart, keeping itself from overcharging and from sustaining damage during storage, even if fully charged.
It will communicate just how much power is left. Extra batteries and a multi-battery charger are available from Unmanned so you can stay in the air far longer than you’re on the ground.
Video Editing, Sharing, Live Streaming
We know you want to share your video ASAP. Edit it first and fast, using the DJI Go Editor to edit in your smartphone. If you don’t want to wait, stream live to Facebook or YouTube.
Get your video out there on Twitter, Instagram or SkyPixel, the DJI community for sharing aerial imagery. For stills with a real professional look, shoot in Adobe DNG RAW, which will let you edit for more detail and effects. You’ll get the most out of every pixel.
