Expert Opinion PHIL [PILOT]

A surprise release for 2016, the Mavic Pro was announced to take the 'wind' out of the GoPro Karma's propellers. Its a folding quadcopter that collapses small enough to fit in a jacket pocket, whilst still offering object avoidance and a stabilised 4k camera. This is DJI at its best, miniaturising cutting edge electronics to provide a truly portable drone.

High-end portable Quadcopter

The Mavic is a revolutionary, small and compact quadcopter by DJI. As well as being a completely new design the Mavic has taken a number of unique features from DJI's other models and combined them to create this new, impressive and exciting personal drone.

The DJI Mavic will fly for up to 27 minutes and has a record breaking 4.3 mile range. A 1080p live view is presented on your smartphone via the DJI GO App.

New Compact Folding Design

For the Mavic DJI have really concentrated on making the craft and its accessories as easy to carry and travel with as possible. The new design means the arms can now be folded inwards making it a lot smaller and more compact. This gives you the ability to carry it on your person or in small bags a lot easier and making it a more personal drone. The small gamepad size controller included with this package can easily be stored in a space as small as a back pocket.

Folded down the Mavic is 198mm x 83mm x 83mm and weighs 743g, similar in size and weight to a bottle of water.

4K Camera & 3-Axis Gimbal

The Mavic has kept up with the Phantom and Inspire with it's 4K camera unit. It can record video at up to 4K 30fps and take 12MP still shots. DJI have designed this camera to be as small and compact as possible to keep the weight down but without sacrificing image or video quality. The camera view will be instantly transferred to a live 1080p feed on your smartphone. A gimbal will use high powered motors to keep all 3 axis steady and counteract any movements. This enables you to capture extremely smooth and high quality video while flying.

A new tripod mode has been introduced to allow for accurate shots. This mode slows down the speed of the aircraft as well as decreasing stick sensitivity. This makes it a lot easier to steady the craft and focus your camera on a tight and specific area.

Obstacle Avoidance and Return to Home

The obstacle avoidance feature first introduced on the Phantom 4 has been integrated into the Mavic. The Mavic contains 5 Vision sensors. Ultrasonic sensors on the bottom of the drone are perfect for indoor flying as they scan the ground beneath them (effective up to 3 metres) and keep the drone steady and safe. The sensors on the front of the craft can detect objects from up to 15 metres away. These sensors are used for obstacle avoidance and will allow the drone to either avoid or stop in front of the obstacle (depending on the surrounding area). This is a perfect feature for flying indoors and outdoors and very useful for beginners and anyone new to flying.

The Mavic can connect to up to 20 satellites at once giving it extreme precision while flying and allowing the return to home feature to be unbelievably accurate.

New Activetrack Modes

We first saw the active track feature on the recent Phantom 4 quadcopter. But DJI have made some considerable improvements to it with these new modes:

  • Trace Mode - This mode is closest to the original standard mode on the Phantom 4. The Mavic will directly follow behind you at a set distance.
  • Profile Mode - The Mavic will follow alongside the subject in this mode.
  • Circle Mode - In this mode the Mavic will fly in a circle around the tracked subject, even while the subject is moving.
  • Spotlight Mode - The drone will lock on to the subject. In this mode the Mavic can be controlled but will continue to keep its lock on the subject no matter how it is flown.
  • Terrain Follow Mode - This mode will lock on and follow the subject but use its sensors to keep a certain distance above the ground directly below.

In additional to these modes the Mavic introduces Gesture controls. You can now wave your arms to your drone to instruct the drone to track you without even touching the transmitter. Gesture a framing action with your fingers to take a picture.

These new modes have certainly opened up a lot opportunities for those looking to get precise video footage in unique ways. As well as being extremely fun to play around with.

New Controller Design

DJI have heavily focused on keeping the Mavic small and compact. This is no different for the controller. This new game pad style controller is the smallest transmitter unit DJI have made to date. It's extremely small size make it no hassle to carry around in a small bag or even your back pocket.

The large phone/tablet holder seen on other DJI models has now been removed and a small clamping device has been designed into the bottom of the transmitter. With this your phone can simply clip onto the controller.

The Mavic is the first craft by DJI that can be fully flown/controlled using just your phone should you not want to use the controller. This can be achieved through the DJI Go App.

DJI Go App

The DJI GO App is used with almost every DJI model that requires a smartphone. It can be downloaded on to your smart device for free from the App store. The GO app is what you will use to see the live HD view from the camera but it is also used for a range of other features and settings.

Any settings you want to change with your aircraft, controller, photo and video settings will all be done through the App. Calibrations such as the compass calibration and IMU calibration will also be done here as well as updates for your remote controller.

One of the apps many features is Livestreaming. You can now stream your footage live over Youtube and allow others to watch and comment in near real time.

Also available to you will be a quick video editor. This software will allow you to quickly choose your best moments with the ability to add music, text and more.

Will the controller hold a Kodak Ektra camera phone ?
The new Kodak Ektra camera phone has a wider end that may not fit in the controller - has anyone tried it yet ?
Anonymous
  • Hi Peter,

    I'm afraid I couldn't be 100% sure if the Kodak Ektra will fit in the Mavic controller as we don't have the same phone to test it. 

    Thanks

Is the camera able to point straight down
Is the camera able to point straight down. My phantom 2 points down but at a slight angle and won't point straight down.

  • Hi there,

    The camera will indeed be able to point straight down.

    Many thanks

What is the flying distance with just a smartphone? (no controller)
Dylan W-P
  • Hi there,

    Sadly as it has only just been announced and we have not yet tried out a model we are unsure of the wifi range at the moment.

    We should have an answer in the upcoming weeks.

    Many thanks

How long does it take for the battery to charge?
Dylan W-P
  • Hi Dylan,

    We will need to wait until we receive our demo model to test this 100%. But going by the charge times on other models and the type of battery I think the charge time is very likely going to be around the 1 hour mark.

    If you have any other questions you are welcome to email me at matt@rcgeeks.co.uk

    Many thanks

Can i use my iPad
Can i fly this machine with my iPad instead of a smart phone?
Ronald MacKintosh
  • Hi Ronald,

    As the Mavic uses the DJI GO APP like other models I don't believe there will be any issues using an Ipad to fly the drone as well as getting the live feed, you just will not be able to attach the Ipad to the included controller. However this is certainly something we will test when we receive our demo model to be 100% sure.

    Should you have any other questions, you are welcome to email me at matt@rcgeeks.co.uk

    Many thanks
