The DJI Mavic Pro is a small yet powerful drone that turns the sky into your creative canvas easily and without worry, helping you make every moment an aerial moment. Its compact size hides a high degree of complexity that makes it one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras ever. 24 high-performance computing cores, an all-new transmission system with a 4.3mi (7km) range, 5 vision sensors, and a 4K camera stabilized by a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, are at your command with just a push of your thumb or a tap of your finger.
Portable and Powerful
Everything about Mavic Pro is perfectly miniaturized from the camera to core flight components. Yet it delivers plenty of power—which you can effortlessly harness with the pocket-sized remote controller.
OcuSync long-range-transmission technology is capable of relaying a signal up to 4.3 miles line-of-sight while supporting 720p HD video (1080p HD transmission in short-range mode). Every time you fly, OcuSync scans a range of available frequencies to find and use the one with the least interference to give you more reliability and control. Tightly integrated with the DJI GO app, OcuSync transfers vital statistics of the Mavic to you in real time, and can also be used to download photos and videos at up to 40 Mbps while flying.
Longer Flight Time
Custom-designed, high-energy-density batteries; an optimized propulsion system; and advanced power management give the Mavic a much longer flight time than many compatible platforms in its size class. This results in flight times of up to 27 minutes under ideal conditions and up to 21 minutes for average flights.
12MP Raw/JPEG Still Photos
Every photo you take with the Mavic can be as big as 12 megapixels, with the ability to save in DNG raw or JPEG. You can even flip the camera 90-degrees for portrait oriented shots, just like you do with your phone.
UHD 4K and Full HD 1080P Videos
The Mavic Pro camera shoots 4K video (up to 4096 x 2160) at 30 frames per second and Full HD 1080p at 96 frames per second, so you can create incredible slow motion. Its minimum focusing distance is just 19″, making it perfect for everything from the ultimate aerial selfies to landscape shots.
With ActiveTrack, just tell the Mavic who to track and it handles the rest. No GPS bracelets or transmitters are required. The Mavic has been trained to detect and recognize a number of common subjects including people, bike riders, vehicles, and even animals. Once you have marked your subject, you can fly around them to create a huge variety of shots, depending on the mode you are in. As the Mavic is tracking, you can even select exactly where you want the subject in the frame.
Three modes are available:
Trace – Follow behind or in front of your subject, or circle it as it moves
Profile – Fly alongside your subject
Spotlight – Keep the camera trained on your subject while you fly almost anywhere
When you tap on your phone’s screen, software translates your touch into a heading, including whether you want it to climb or descend. When you want to change direction, just tap somewhere else on your screen and the Mavic will smoothly turn to the new destination.
When you are flying over changing terrain, like following bikers riding uphill, the Mavic’s Terrain Follow function uses height information gathered by the on-board ultrasonic system, and its downward-facing cameras to keep you flying at the same height above the ground even as the ground moves. Just set the height from the ground you want — from 9 to 33′ — and focus on getting the right shot.
Sport Mode was designed for fun, giving the Mavic a top speed of 40 mph, all the while ramping up agility and responsiveness, to give you a taste of drone racing. You can also use it to film something fast, or zip out to catch a shot before the moment passes. Even in Sport Mode, the Mavic will stop immediately if you let go of the controls.
FlightAutonomy is the Mavic’s brain and nervous system: a complex network of hardware and software that includes five cameras, GPS/GLONASS, a pair of ultrasonic range finders, redundant sensors, and a group of 24 CPUs to process and fuse all of this information.
The Mavic is able to position itself accurately in a range of environments, beyond what is possible using basic “optical flow” technology, which depends on a single downward-facing camera and assumes that the ground below is always flat. Mavic is able to sense its environment in 3-dimensions and react to it, ensuring it hovers steadily, whether it is high up on the side of a cliff where downward sensors have no target, or under a forest canopy where satellite positioning is blocked and the ground is covered in uneven markings and obstacles.
As the Mavic flies, it scans the world around it, creating a 3D map that tells it exactly where it can fly and what it needs to avoid. Because it uses vision processing, it can see up to 98′ in front and can accurately measure distance up to 49′ in front, making it significantly more accurate than sonar based avoidance technologies. When the Mavic detects an obstacle and sees a way around it, it will simply adjust its route to fly around it. If it can’t see a way around, it will slow to a stop gently and hover until you tell it what to do next.
In flight, the Mavic uses its compass to tell it where it is heading and the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to tell it how it is flying. An interruption in the data flow from either of these may cause it to fly less reliably, which is why the Mavic has not one, but two of each. Whenever the system detects an inconsistency in one, it switches to the other, keeping your flight steady and reliable.
DJI Goggle Compatibility
The separately available DJI Goggle are FPV goggles designed to make flying totally immersive. The feature two 1080p LTPS displays with a wide 85° angle of view to give you a bird’s eye view of the world around you. Built-in OcuSync connectivity means that it links directly to the Mavic and not through a cable or a Wi-Fi link to the controller. This seamless connection yields a delay of only 120 milliseconds.
