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.
Inside the Mavic’s pocket-sized remote controller is DJI’s brand new OcuSync transmission technology, with a range of 4.3mi (7km) and Full HD 1080p video streaming. OcuSync uses a more effective digital compression technology and channel transmission technology, allowing it to transmit HD video reliably even in environment environments with strong radio interference. Compared to the traditional Analog Transmission, OcuSync can transmit video at 720p and 1080p, equal to an image quality increase of 4-10 times without colour casts, static interference, flickering or other problems associate with analog transmission. Even when using the same amount of radio transmission power, OcuSync’s transmission distance is further than analog at 4.1mi (7km).
No Bumps and Scrapes
Detecting obstacles requires getting information about the obstacle to the Mavic. Ultrasonic and TOF sensors measure distance by detecting the first reflected wave. In other words, they can only measure the distance from a single point, instead of getting a 3D depth image of an obstacle. Another method of creating a depth image is structured light projection. In this, a structured light sensor projects infrared in a specific shape onto an obstacle in front of it. The infrared reflects back and the sensor then calculates the strength of the reflected signal so that it can create a 3D depth image of the obstacle. However, due to the limited strength of infrared and interference from visible light, the maximum sensing distance for a structured light sensor is only 3 to 5 meters. It is also ineffective in bright light significantly reducing its reliability and effectiveness on a sunny day.
As the Mavic flies, dual forward and downward vision sensors measure the distance between itself and obstacles by taking photos from all four cameras and using the information to create a 3D map that tells it exactly where obstacles are. The dual forward and downward vision sensors require visible light to function, and can see as far as 49ft (15m) in front in bright light.
Satellite positioning can only help a drone hover in an unobstructed outdoor area free of interference. Without satellites, the drone will not be able to position and become susceptible to drifting. However, with forward and downward vision sensors, the Mavic can hover precisely indoors or in places without GPS.
Stay Flying Longer
The Mavic is only 1/6th the size of the Phantom 4 but this reduction in size doesn't mean a reduction in flight time. The Mavic actually flies much longer than you would expect from its compact size. It is capable of reaching an absolute max flight time of 27 minutes and a maximum distance of 8mi (13km) plus reach speeds of 40mph (64kph) thanks to its powerful, high efficiency motors.
4K Ultra HD
This 4K camera uses core technologies found in all DJI cameras. It is equipped with a 1/2.3 inch CMOS image sensor, commonly found in professional sport cameras, and an aerial imaging optimized integrated lens with an equivalent focal length of 28mm. this allows the camera to provide smooth 4K video at 30fps, 1080P video at 96fps and 12 megapixel photos.
Photos with Altitude
Every photo you take with the Mavic can be as big as 12 megapixels. Combined with an image sensor that has been expertly tuned for aerial images, all you need to do is find the perfect subject. You can even flip the camera 90° for portrait oriented shots, just like you do with your phone. If you are as concerned about editing as you are about composition, you can capture every photo in Adobe DNG RAW to give you all the editing power you need to turn any photo into a work of art.
ActiveTrack uses deep learning, computer vision and advanced autonomous flight strategies to make complex, creative shots as simple as possible with just a tap. No GPS bracelets, no transmitters. 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. Choose from Trace, Profile or Spotlight, to give every scene you shoot that professional touch. As the Mavic is tracking, you can even select exactly where you want them in the frame, for more control over your final shot.
Tripod Mode drops the Mavic’s maximum speed to just 2.2mph (3.6kph), and the control stick sensitivity of the remote controller is dulled to give you the precision you need for accurate framing. It is also great for flying indoors in small spaces where the Mavic’s normal speed may make it more challenging to fly.
Fly By Phone
Sometimes a phone is all you need to fly. Not only does the Mavic support flying on your phone with Virtual Joysticks, but you also have full access to all of its Intelligent Flight Modes — TapFly, Trace, Spotlight, Profile and Circle. Using just your phone, you can capture photos and video so incredible, that no one will believe you did it by tapping a screen!
With intelligent vision technology, Mavic is very smart. Tap a point on the screen, Mavic will fly towards that point directly; if you tap another point, it will smoothly turn to the new destination. In TapFly, Mavic’s onboard obstacle sensing systems are constantly scanning in front of it, keeping it away from any obstructions, freeing you up to admire the view.
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.
When you are flying over changing terrain, like following bikers riding uphill, the Mavic’s Terrain Follow function uses height information gathered by the onboard 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 9ft (0.3m) to 33ft (10m) — and focus on getting the right shot.
Safer Smarter Batteries
The Mavic’s Intelligent Flight Batteries give it a flight time of up to 27 minutes, allowing you to check battery level and status in real-time during flight through the DJI GO app. It also calculates remaining flight time, helping pilots fly more safely.
DJI GO AppCustomer Advisory:
DJI GO is your Mavic’s control centre. When your phone or device is connected to the Mavic, it shows you everything the camera sees in near real-time, so you can set up and frame every shot as if you are actually there. It also gives you full manual camera controls for photos and videos, including ISO, shutter and file format. It even lets you fine tune your Mavic so that it flies exactly how you want it to.
