Mavic Pro Drone
The Mavic or Mavic Pro is a small yet powerful drone that is used to take unmanned aerial photography and videos. This personal and commercial used drone is released by DJI, a Chinese technology company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong. It is capable of reaching an absolute maximum flight time of 27 minutes and a maximum distance of 8mi (13km) due to its powerful, high-efficiency motors.
The remote controller comes with DJI’s brand new OcuSync transmission technology with a range of 4.3mi (7km), HD 720p long range and Full HD 1080p short range video streaming. It uses FlightAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away and allows the Mavic to bypass them or brake to hover, reducing accidents. The forward and downward vision sensors will help the Mavic to hover precisely indoors or in places without GPS.
Mavic’s 12-megapixel camera supports 4K video at 30fps. A special feature called ultra-precise 3-axis gimbal in the drone will be capable of stabilizing the camera even during high-speed motion for smooth video and sharp photos. Mavic weighs only 743 g and can be folded into 83 mm x 83 mm x 198 mm. It includes 5 cameras, GPS & GLONASS, 2 ultrasonic range finders, redundant sensors and 24 powerful computing cores.
- Gesture Mode – In this mode you can control the drone using gestures.
- ActiveTrack – It can follow a chosen subject throughout the shot, whether they are walking along a trail, driving a car, or even swimming in the ocean.
- Tripod Mode – This mode reduces the Mavic Pro’s maximum speed to just 2.2mph (3.6kph), and the control stick sensitivity of the remote controller is dulled to give you the precision you need for accurate framing. . It is helpful when it is flying indoors where GPS signals are weak. Also it is used to capture cinematic shots.
- Tapfly – In this mode the pilot only needs to tip on the screen or the Smartphone, adjust the speed and press the start button. The drone will directly fly towards the aim.
- Dual remote controller mode – Both Master and Slave remote controllers can control the aircraft and gimbal, but the master remote controller has priority.
The drone comes with a DjJI Goggle that offers both 720p/60fps and close range 1080p/30fps viewing. Your head movements control both aircraft yaw and camera tilt in Head Tracking Flight mode as with remote controller sticks. Also you can edit the pictures taken by the drone using a DJI GO 4 editor.
