DJI has been
making waves recently and adding to their catalogue now is the Mavic Pro – a
portable, powerful and easy-to-use drone featuring DJI’s most innovative flight
technology in a sleek, foldable package that enables creative fun wherever you
go. Mavic Pro is DJI’s first personal drone designed to be taken just about
anywhere. Small enough to toss in a bag and easy enough to launch quickly
whenever the time and place are right, its unique folding design compresses the
entire drone to practically the size of a water bottle. Equipped with a
stabilized 4K camera and a visual navigation system, with a 4.3 mile (7 km)
range and 27 minute flight time, Mavic Pro sets the new standard for compact
spent a decade making it easier for anyone to fly, and by rethinking everything
about how a drones look, we have created an entirely new type of aerial
platform for anyone to explore their creativity,” said Frank Wang, DJI’s CEO
folding arms and propellers that tuck neatly away against its streamlined body,
it can be easily carried in a purse or backpack, saving you the trouble of
mounting propellers before a flight. It can be operated by the powerful long
range remote controller, or simply by your smartphone at shorter range. When
controlled by a smartphone, the whole system can be set up and airborne in less
than a minute to capture every key moment.
Unparalleled Flight Experience
commitment to unparalleled stability, maneuverability and safety is clear in
Mavic Pro’s new FlightAutonomy system. FlightAutonomy is Mavic Pro’s brain and
nervous system, a complex network of hardware and software consisting of five
cameras, GPS and GLONASS navigation systems, a pair of ultrasonic range
finders, redundant sensors and 24 powerful computing cores. FlightAutonomy can
position, navigate and plan routes for Mavic Pro, enabling it to avoid
obstacles in various environments, with or without the help of satellite
signals. FlightAutonomy provides a significant boost in working range and can
cope with complex 3D environments. To experience the pure joy of flying, Mavic
Pro can be switched to Sport Mode, which allows speeds of up to 40 mph (64.8
kph), increasing the drone’s agility and responsiveness. Mavic Pro flies
smoothly and will remain stable in winds of up to 24 mph (38.5 kph), and uses
DJI’s GEO geofencing system to help identify restricted areas, preventing
flight in locations that might raise safety or security concerns automatically,
and helping pilots make smarter decisions about when and where to fly.
As with all DJI drones, Mavic Pro is set to
automatically return to its launch location if it ever loses contact with the
controller or reaches critically low battery levels.
Advanced Stabilized Camera System
includes DJI's smallest-ever three-axis gimbal for shake-free photos and video.
The autofocus camera features a minimum focusing distance of just 19 in (0.5 m)
and can be flipped 90 degrees to portrait mode for vertical selfies and video.
Mavic Pro records 4K video at 30fps and full 1080p HD at 96fps. Its
12-megapixel camera with Adobe DNG RAW support has been expertly tuned for
aerial images. With the help of the high-precision gimbal, you can confidently
shoot 2-second-long exposures in the air to get the most jaw-dropping aerial
New Remote and Live View Performance
revolutionary new compact remote controller has been designed to provide a
fully ergonomic experience with optimum comfort, and can accommodate a
smartphone or control Mavic Pro on its own. Its built-in LCD screen displays
essential telemetry data, while dedicated buttons for functions such as
Return-to-Home and pausing during Intelligent Flight modes ensure a confident
flight every single time. The video link system, OcuSync, represents new
heights in DJI’s communication technology. It supports a range up to 4.3 miles
(7 km) and live view resolutions up to 1080p.
Most Intelligent Drone Ever
systems inside Mavic Pro are easy to use, even for beginners. Using just your
phone’s touchscreen, you can use TapFly to direct Mavic Pro to go wherever you
want, avoiding obstacles along the way. When you want to take a hands-free
selfie, FlightAutonomy makes it possible to control the drone completely with
just your gestures.
version of DJI’s ActiveTrack recognizes common subjects such as people,
bicyclists, cars, boats and animals, which then sends Mavic Pro to follow
behind, lead in front, circle above or track alongside the subject, keeping the
camera focused on the subject while you concentrate on flight maneuvers. At the
other extreme, the new Tripod Mode is designed for indoor use, slowing and
fine-tuning Mavic Pro’s position and angle based on controller movement inputs
to allowing for precision framing and safe indoor flight.
also pairs with DJI’s new immersive DJI Goggles, displaying an 85-degree view
from the drone in full 1080p for a true bird’s-eye view of the world below.
With built-in OcuSync, the goggles receive video directly from Mavic Pro in the
air and not through the controller, reducing lag to a minimum – and allowing
you to share the in-flight view with a friend.
designed for aerial first-person view (FPV) applications, DJI Goggles allows
you to flick between third person view and FPV in under a second. You can
comfortably wear your glasses while wearing the goggles and quit FPV mode
instantly by flipping the mask up.
