DJI Goes BIG With Tiny Featured Packed Mavic Drone

September 27, 20160 Comments

 

This little Mavic Pro drone looks amazing! Has a lot of the features the Phantom 4 has but is foldable and very small. It’s the drone you won’t leave behind. It can be controlled with only a smartphone as well as a very compact controller. DJI also has some crazy drone goggles too. The one feature that sets the Mavic Pro apart from the GoPro Karma is obstacle avoidance. This makes flying and not crashing into things possible. The Mavic uses SkyAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away. It can then bypass these obstacles or brake to hover, preventing accidents even when flying beyond visual range.
