Products related to drones from DJI have been a great success, and people from all around the world admire the quality that the company offers to them.

Core Aspects

Flight Time

DJI Mavic is pretty impressive with its flight time (flying time after a single charge of batteries) of 27 minutes which is regarded one of the best flight times (there are close contenders, though, such as Phantom 4 Pro). A good flight time entirely changes the equation if you are primarily into film-making using drones. A good flight time will result in better continuous videos, more pictures, more fun. No wonder flight-time alone can act as a key differentiating factor between beginners drones and professional ones.

DJI Mavic does an excellent job when it comes to flight time. Full marks there.

Transmission Range

Mavic Pro can be controlled from up to 7 kms from the control unit which is not bad. The distance range till which the drone can communicate with the base control unit is called as transmission range in drone terminologies.

Mavic Pro is fantastic in this aspect too.

Stabilizing Systems

Since a drone is an aerial vehicle and flying in the air is not as easy as it appears. The device can crash into trees, walls or hit another drone and you can expect few other mishaps if there are no stabilisation systems integrated. Thankfully, most of the drones have some or the other stabilising techniques incorporated in their products.

DJI Mavic has a great set of stabilising features such as FlightAutonomy, which allows the drone to see the obstacles that are in front up to 49 feet. It also means the drone can land back to the takeoff place automatically.

Combined with good flight durations, these stabilising systems add to the positive aspects of the product.

Batteries

Mavic has a good set of rechargeable batteries. However, it's not as simple as you charge your smartphone. Mavic has a charging hub, and that enables charging of flight battery and controller. A flight battery can also act as a power bank.

Features and Add-Ons

Let's discuss the additional features that are present in the product.

Camera

Mavic Pro has an excellent camera of 12MP that can take crisp pictures and even can shoot videos at 1080p/720p including live-streaming. It can shoot videos at even 4K resolution. We think this is one of the best camera drones out there.

The camera can be controlled by DJI GO App that will enable you to leverage features such as TapFly, ActiveTrack, AutoFocus, etc. The camera support 2X digital zoom and the images are stored on the 16GB memory card integrated into the drone.

The App

DJI GO app allows you to control the device using your smartphone. However, you must note that using remote controller always give you higher flying ranges. You can switch between RC (Radio Controlled) and WiFi (Smartphone) controllers to operate the drone. You can place your smartphone on drone controller's device holder area.

Wind Resistant Feature

DJI Mavic Pro is wind-resistant up to 5 levels (means 29 - 38 kmph).
