DJI recently released an all-new drone that breaks away from all previous drones that they’ve built. This new drone focuses on portability and comes in complete foldable from. When entirely folded up it will almost fit in the owners pocket and when expended out it has a similar wing span to that of the well-known Phantom 4. The compact device has retained most of the advanced features of predecessor drones and has even been improved in certain areas, despite its small stature. On this DJI Mavic Pro Price page we will tell you a bit about this new drone, cover how much it will cost you as well as where you can expect to pick up this fold-able flying sidekick at the best deal. You can also have a look at our full DJI Mavic Pro Review for a good overview of everything. There has been confusion over the release date but the drone is definitely being released by the 15 November 2016. It is now available for pre-order, but we suggest moving quickly if you have your heart set on this compact flying camera.

About the Mavic Pro
This new, collapsible drone has stirred up a fuss in the drone industry and has been closely compared to both the Phantom 4 in terms of features and the GoPro Karma, another foldable adversary. We have a Mavic Pro vs Phantom 4 article as well as a DJI Mavic vs GoPro Karma article if you would be interested in such comparisons. The Mavic is a very different drone to previous DJI products, it’s grey in color with some gold details and is fully fold-able, even the propellers fold up easily. The result is the most compact and easily transportable flying camera that the world has ever seen.
Mavic Pro Specs
Although the drone may be small in stature, it packs a huge amount of punch and for its size is definitely the most powerful piece of flying camera equipment available. We also have a page dedicated to the DJI Mavic Pro Specs if you wish to learn more. The Mavic retains all the aerial awareness of the Phantom 4 by incorporating the same obstacle avoidance system as well as the same five vision positioning sensors. In tests it has been shown that the Mavic will far outperform the Phantom in terms of speed in Normal Mode and is about the same in Sport Mode. It is however a lot more responsive and agile in the air with some alluding to it as the sports car of DJI drones.
The drone has a claimed flight time of 27 minutes in perfect conditions when flying at 25km/h. It also incorporates state-of-the-art technology in terms of video transmission and downlink from the drone to the device in real-time. First the drones utilized a simple Bluetooth connection for this task which was extremely limited, then came about Lightbridge technology the best of which was seen in the Phantom 4 with Lightbridge 2. Now though, DJI has taken it a step further with a technology known as OcuSync. This allows a connection of 720p to be retained up to a maximum distance of 4.3 miles (7km). Also it improves video downlink when in closer proximity to the drone, allowing a 1080p connection. The upgrade has also improved the experienced by reducing distortions and pixelation issues that were often experienced on the Phantom 4 when at range.
The new remote control has also been completely re-designed and is far smaller. It has fold-able limbs which extend to support your mobile device as well as collapsible antennae that extend for a good signal. The mobile device acts as your real-time viewer while a built in screen above gives you flight-critical data such as temperatures, altitudes and speed. Testers have noted that the remote feels far more ergonomic and flying the drone feels a lot more responsive and intuitive with this controller. The controller is just one of the reasons to buy the DJI Mavic Pro for Christmas 2016 and also collapses into a small, easily portable package so you can take your drone and controller with you on any adventure. The controller now also gives users Force Feedback by vibrating when it wants to draw the user’s attention to something such as very high winds.

The DJI Mavic Pro will cost you between $1000 and $1300. The drone is being released on November 15, 2016 and is sure to sell out very fast, especially with the up and coming holiday season.
