I was looking at buying a Drone and found that all my online research led me again and again to the Dji Mavic Pro. Every review stated that this little piece of drone technology was simply the best drone to buy for reliability, ease of use and price.
BUT what’s the real truth behind this seemingly awesome piece of Drone tech? Are these reviews fake or sponsored by the manufacturer? Sounds cynical but fake reviews are a reality. Is this the case from DJI Mavic Pro?
Like all camera, drones DJI Mavic Pro is relatively easy to damage while expensive to repair. This is why what value-added services are offered with your drone is a crucial factor when deciding which drone manufacturer to go with. With this, you can enjoy replacements if damage occurs to the aircraft during normal use. For novice pilots, these services are always a big plus.
DJI’s Mavic is simply amazing and just what every #UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) fan has been yearning for: a reliable lightweight, portable drone that folds into a package the size of a milk carton, flies for 27 minutes for up to 4 miles away, avoids obstacles, shoots lush 4K footage from a stabilised, auto-focus camera no larger than a thimble, and then lands automatically in the exact same spot it took off from. Sounds perfect but how much is a Mavic Pro?
The Chinese company is best known for its Phantom range of affordable, easy-to-fly drones, and the Mavic Pro is designed to offer many of the same benefits. So you get decent flight time, long-range remote control, a live video feed of the drone’s viewpoint beamed to your smartphone, and stable 4K video recording – but in a more easily portable package.
The market-leading foldable drone from DJI – the Mavic will let you fly anytime, anywhere. Access a large suite of DJI smart features and an impressive camera, all built into an easily transportable quadcopter. There’s also the option to upgrade with the Fly More Combo which comes with a range of extra peripherals.
I asked myself what do I want from a from a drone and thought about how I would love to use a drone. The drone for me would need to be able to travel easily. Mavic Pro ticks this box by creating relatively small foldable drones,
DJI Mavic features a smart mode called “Gesture Mode” allowing you to take Aerial selfies without the remote. This is pretty cool if you want to take some aerial selfies without holding the remote. The steps are a bit tricky.
If getting your selfie drone started up, in the air, and positioned correctly is a long, drawn-out process, then it’s not the right one for you. Some selfie drones can perform basic functions and be controlled with just a smartphone and a few simple taps. Others come with an app that allows for fast editing and sharing. For example, with DJI GO 4, you can edit a selfie and share it to social media super quickly.
To ensure my selfies are smooth and really stand out, choosing a drone that shoots at least 1080p video at 30 fps, and ideally with a mechanical gimbal.
When travelling to remote destinations, satellite positioning may not always be available, and a drone will be prone to drifting. Not only can this be dangerous, but it’s also no good for the perfect selfie! Mavic Pro is drone that has vision sensors and hovers precisely in place, even without GPS.
The DJI Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, and Spark all feature mechanical gimbals, gesture recognition, mobile device controls, vision positioning systems, and decent cameras. Plus, they’re portable and easy to use.
There have been plenty of small drones on the market before the Mavic. Hardly a week goes by without a new company claiming they have created the world’s smallest camera drone, smallest 4K drone, the smallest drone with live-streaming video. My kids love to play with quadcopters that fit in the palm of your hand. Read full review
Our opinions of the original Mavic Pro remain unchanged, as you”ll read below, but the new release of this machine packs more than a just a new colour. The Mavic Pro Platinum improves software and some internals, plus introduces new propellers to increase flight time and reduce noise. We’ll be updating this Mavic Pro review with new info once we get the new propellers – that’s right, the new props fit the original Mavic as well. Read Full Review
With this done, simply open the DJI app, tap the “take off” button and you’re in business. The drone immediately leaps into the air – then hangs there, eerily motionless. It won’t drift or wobble until you nudge the control sticks. When you do, it zooms off, reacting in an instant to the slightest touch. Read Full Review
When it comes to drones, no company is killing it right now more than DJI, and the Mavic Pro is its most amazing achievement yet. Yes, some drones fly faster and shoot better video, but the Mavic Pro is the ultimate drone for people who love photography, flight and the outdoors but don’t want to be weighed down.

The drone game has changed. That may sound like hyperbole, but that was my first impression when experiencing the DJI Inspire One. This is a unit that anyone could pick up and learn to fly quickly, just as you could with the DJI Phantom. But it offers a ton of powerful new features that were previously only available in units too big, dangerous, and expensive for the average consumer to own.
Watching the Inspire One take off and land is exciting, because it transforms mid-flight, with the legs folding up after takeoff so you can shoot 360 degrees of unobstructed video. The unit also has a ground-facing camera that can track what’s below and keep the unit stabilized, even when there is no GPS signal, making it much easier to fly indoors.
