The Mavic from DJI packs features you once thought possible only on much larger platforms into a compact quadcopter that is snappy, agile, and captures high-resolution images. The drone features an advanced flight control system that draws on a host of sensors — including a ground-facing camera, ultrasound, GPS, dual redundant IMUs, and more — to keep track of where it is flying in 3D space and even avoid collisions. The Mavic works in tandem with DJI’s GO mobile app for accessing settings, getting a telemetry readout, viewing a low-latency video feed, and even editing and sharing your footage. In addition to traditional joystick style controls, you can fly with simple tap-based commands, and the Mavic can even recognize gestures for the perfect selfie.
Mavic Pro is an intensely famous drone and for good reason. Its firm size makes it ideal for transport, and results in an impressively short prep time before flying. The Mavic Pro uses a game-like controller for flight and features a 4K camera, 3-axis mechanical gimbal, plus the capability to pilot with your smartphone.
