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: 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


When it was released in late 2016, the DJI Mavic Pro created a new standard for portable drones. It captures good 4K video and provides top-notch flight performance, yet folds down into a package about the size of a 1-liter water bottle. If you want...

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 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.
