There has been much confusion as to when this compact flying camera is going to be made available to the public. Originally the drone was to be made available on the 15th of October to those who had pre-ordered it. The drone was also to be made available in stores from the 2nd of November. The Mavic Pro drones weren’t distributed on October 15 and so many are left wondering, “When is the DJI Mavic Pro Release Date?” On this page we will tell you a bit about this drone, when the actual release date is and where you can acquire the drone at the best price. We also have a full DJI Mavic Pro Review which covers most aspects of the drone and other pages that narrow down on areas such as the Mavic Pro Specs.

A bit about this drone
The DJI Mavic Pro has really upset the playing field and is a completely different addition to the DJI drone line. It isn’t white, it isn’t big, it has no landing gear, and it has a way smaller camera and gimbal. DJI enthusiasts will be wondering what on Earth has happened.
The DJI Mavic Pro focuses on compatibility and portability. It aims to make taking your drone with you as easy as possible so the aerial footage never stops. The drone is matt grey with hints of gold. It’s entirely foldable and has four limbs which extend out to give it a similar wing-span to that of the Phantom 4. The end of these limbs feature fold-up propellers which straighten out by centrifugal force when the engines are revved up. When folded up it can almost fit in your pocket. The remote too, is tiny and features foldable antennae and foldable lower limbs which extend to support your mobile device for real-time video display. This stuff would easily fit into the smallest of back packs and is as light as a feather. The drone weighs half that of the Phantom 4.
Don’t let the small stature fool you either. This drone packs a punch. Most of the features of the Phantom 4 have been retained, some even enhanced. It has the same 5 vision positioning sensors, the same obstacle avoidance system and retains features like ‘Active Track.’ You can also check out our Mavic Pro vs Phantom 4 article if you wish. The Mavic also has new abilities, such as the ability to retain a 720 p video downlink connection up to a range of 4.3 miles or 7 km and a 1080 p connection when in closer range. This is made possible with the new OcuSync technology that replaces the Lightbridge 2 on the Phantom 4. There are also cool new app-enabled features like ‘Gesture Control’ which has brought selfies to the world of drones. You can wave to get the drone’s attention and then create a picture frame with your hands for it to take a picture of you. These are just a few of the reasons to buy the DJI Mavic Pro for Christmas 2016. Overall the Mavic Pro is a big surprise and has made serious inroads into the field of portable companion drones.
DJI Mavic Pro Release Date
Originally the drone was to be made available on the 15th of October to those who had pre-ordered it. The drone was also to be made available in stores from the 2nd of November and some retailers had it down between 28 October and 3 November. The DJI Mavic Pro drones were not distributed on October 15 when it was stated they would be and so many are left wondering, “When is the DJI Mavic Pro Release Date?”
Many have been on forums and contacting DJI support, especially those who have pore-ordered. DJI has responded to complaints and queries saying that the global demand has been immense and that they are trying to keep up in terms of production. A statement from DJI’s global director of communication that was just released and states that shipping of the Mavic Pro has begun today (21 October 2016). So those anticipating their drones are likely to receive them in the next two weeks.
Online retailers, such as Amazon.com, now have the DJI Mavic Pro Release Date at 15 November. We think this is a good, conservative date and if you pre-order now you can expect to receive your drone shortly following that date and well in time for the holiday season. We suggest ordering your very own Mavic Pro from Amazon where you can grab a great pre-order deal at just $999. Alternatively you can also grab what they’re calling the Starter Bundle for $1079 which includes an extra battery so your flight time is never interrupted.
