The DJI Mavic Pro is a flying, remotely operated drone – a small hovering device that can be used for multiple purposes. Basically, it is a remotely operated camera with attractive design. We’re going to review the features, the advantages, and the uses of DJI Mavic Pro further in this review.
This drone operates on batteries which are remotely controlled by a special controller. It is also supplied by wireless connectivity feature, which is a new addition to its smart feature. In short, you will use your remote controller to navigate the drone the way you want it to go.
There are many features that the DJI Mavic Pro comes supplied with, but most important ones are the Aircraft features, Remote Controller Features, the Camera Features, the Wi-Fi features, and The Flight Battery features.
The Aircraft Features are separated into several sub-features, such as the folded size, the diagonal size, the weight, the maximal ascent speed, the maximal descent speed, the maximal overall speed, the maximal flight time, and such.
Size: DJI Mavic pro is 83mm by 83mm by 98mm in size when folded, it’s 335mm in diagonal size. It’s 1.64 pounds heavy with gimbal cover, it can reach a maximum of 16.4-feet per sec of ascent when it’s in sports mode, and can reach a maximum of 9.8-feet per second of descent speed.
The maximum speed it can reach is 40-miles per hour, and this is measured in the perfect weather conditions (no wind). It can fly for 27 minutes. If we take into consideration the 15% of low-battery warning, it can fly for 21 minutes overall.
The DJI Mavic Pro comes supplied with a special remote control that possesses its own unique features. It operates on the frequency in the range between 2.4 GHz and 2.483 GHz, and it has a maximum of transmission distance of 4.3 miles (FCC compliant), or 2.5 miles when unobstructed.
The battery that the remote controller needs are (ideally) a 2970mAh, but it can work on similar batteries as well. Keep in mind that using a substitute for the recommended batteries might affect the overall performance.
The camera is one of the most important features of the DJI Mavic Pro, so it is only natural that it’s a high-quality one. These features can be split into further sub-features such as the Sensor module, ISO range, Shutter Speed, Image Size, Still Photography settings, Video Recording Settings, Maximal Bitrate for Video capturing, Supported formats, Photo formats, Video Formats, SD cards, and the Operating temperature.
The Sensor module features a CMOS sensor of 1” by 2.3”, and has a total of 12.71 megapixels. A total of effective megapixels is 12.35. The focus lens has a diameter of 28mm, and the predicted distortion is below 1.5% (when maximally focused).
ISO range is between 100 and 3200 for videos, and between 100 and 1600 for photos. The Image Size is really important, as you wouldn’t find much use of a drone that could take panoramic shots in small sizes. DJI Mavic pro can take photos of up to 4000×3000 resolution.
Photography settings are the options of how you would like your photos to be when you take them. You can take a single shot, burst shots at intervals between 3 to 7 frames, AEB shots in the bracketed frames of 0.7 secs, EV Bias shots, or Interval Shots.
Video Recording Settings are the resolutions of the videos your drone will take. These modes are C4K – 4096 by 2160 in 24p; 4K – 3840 by 2160 at 30p; 2.7K – 2704 by 1520 at 30p; FHD – 1920 by 1080 at 24-96p; HD – 1280 by 720 at 24-120p. Maximal Bitrate for Video capturing is 60 Mbps.
Supported formats are FAT32 for files that are equal or below 32 GB, or EXFAT for files that are beyond 32 GB. Photo formats that are available for DJI Mavic pro are JPEG and DNG, and the Video Formats are MP4 and MOV. The operating temperature of the camera is between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius.
Even though DJI Mavic Pro operates on batteries (which are operated by the remote controller), it is supplied with a wireless connection feature that further increases its capabilities. Considering the Wi-Fi settings of this drone, the operating frequency is between 2.4G and 5G, the Maximal transmission distance is 80m in distance and 50m in height (when unobstructed)
The special battery that DJI Mavic Pro operates on is very important as it keeps it going. It is very important to remember that the performance of the drone will get significantly lower when the battery reaches 15%. This is the time at which you will need to recover your drone and recharge it.
