DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

 

The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is the best small drone you can buy, but some pilots may be turned off by DJI's no-fly zone enforcement and frequent firmware updates.

Compact, folding design. Small remote control. Forward obstacle avoidance. Automated flight options. Crisp 4K video. 12MP Raw and JPG stills. Up to 28 minutes of flight per charge.

Pricey. Frequent firmware updates. Requires a smartphone for full experience.

The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is the best small drone on the market. Its folding design makes it a go-anywhere option, easily when stowed into a gear bag. It's a bit quieter and flies longer than the original Mavic Pro, but also costs more. Don't rule out...

DJI Mavic Pro review

 

Editors' note: DJI currently has shipping delays for the Mavic Pro. The company's website as of January 25, 2017 lists 10 to 15 business days from your order confirmation, some customers might actually experience longer delays.

The DJI Mavic Pro's compact foldable design makes it more travel friendly than any other camera drone with similar capabilities. Its gaming-style controller is equally compact, but still has all the controls you need to fly and control the camera and...

The phone mount is a little awkward to use. Not user repairable. Camera lens is a little narrow for landscapes.

If you've been looking for a discreet, but powerful travel-friendly camera drone, look no further than the DJI Mavic Pro.

DJI Mavic Pro Review: a new dimension

 

I went for a long hike recently, up a steep mountain trail, excited to enjoy some crisp autumn air and beautiful fall foliage. In one pocket I had my smartphone. In another, I had a drone, the new...

Incredibly small, light, and easy to carry ; Captures great photos and video ; Has all the range, battery life, and advanced features of larger drones

Compact legs make takeoff and landing more difficult ; Smaller motors mean it can struggle against strong winds

All the power of a DJI Phantom in a more portable package

DJI Mavic Pro Review

 

Really the only option if you want a capable filming tool that can fit in a normal daypack

Small and packable, good video, great flight performance

Relatively expensive, can't match video quality of Phantom 4s

-Cost: $1100

Review: DJI's Mavic Pro is the best iPhone-connected drone you can buy

 

With a highly optimized, portable design, solid construction, deep iOS integration and a bevy of automated features, DJI's Mavic Pro is perhaps the best product available on the consumer drone market.

Integrating what the company has learned with products like the Phantom and Inspire series, DJI has created a truly portable personal flying camera platform in Mavic. With an easy-to-use interface, no-hassle carry and advanced automated features, the...

DJI’s Tiny Mavic Pro is a GoPro Karma Assassin

 

DJI has grown to be the 800 lb gorilla in the drone industry. Other challengers like Yuneec, 3DR and GoPro appear to be in a race for a distant second-place spot. We thought GoPro might be able to make a big splash and a bit of a comeback with its...

Maybe GoPro comes out with a killer product for VR/360° video capture, changes its game again and rises to the top in the next few years. However, the drone market belongs to DJI.

DJI Mavic Pro In-Depth Review

 

While the widely held assumption this year was that the GoPro Karma drone would be the hottest drone to get one's hands on, it's quickly become clear over the last 75 days that wouldn't quite pan out. A mere 7 days after GoPro announced their Karma...

DJI Mavic Pro Is the Drone of the Year

 

The DJI Mavic Pro pretty much ticks all of the boxes that drone pilots look for. It is small, portable, easy to use, easy to fly and takes good video. More important, though, it doesn't compromise much on these features. It flies like a larger drone,...

Folds into very small space for storage ; Easy to fly ; Takes great quality video ; Long wireless range

Some glitches in video ; Controller too small to hold tablets

Outdoor videographers and adventurous types will love this compact, easy-to-fly and high-quality drone that won’t take much space in their backpacks.
