DJI Mavic Pro 2017 is the next level revolt in the world of drone cameras. It is the best drone camera DJI has launched so far with full features and best technology anyone can expect a drone camera to have after Phantom 4. It has made many innovations in the designs and technology in Movic Pro.

Pros and Cons

DJI Mavic Pro is just full of pros we saw no particular cons in it other than just one, which that it’s camera has 78.8 degrees of the field view as compared to 98.4 of Phantom 4.

DJI Mavic Pro has the best portable design any drone camera has to offer. Its remote is so small that it literally fits in your pocket and the drone camera itself is very portable. The wings drone camera folds itself like the robots in ‘Transformers’  and gizmo feels like something from the future in your hand. It has the best design, best picture quality, best software features and best ever drone camera. The DJI Mavic Pro is truly portable with a weight of only 740g.


It comes for $999 and all of its additional accessories are in the market as well if you want to buy a quick release and folding propellers and extra batteries for unstoppable flying or that chic handbag for the drone it’s all in the market.


DJI Mavic Pro is definitely worth the price of $999 it has instead a lot more to offer in terms of features and design and the price it asks is lesser than what it has to give you. It is the best drone camera in the market and none of the drone cameras beats DJI Mavic Pro in any way.
