DJI Mavic Pro, the foldable drone that wants to challenge GoPro

Thanks to a system of joints, the four propellers can be folded on themselves, making the remote-controlled aircraft easily transportable

The future of drones (or at least of the high-end ones) is foldable. After the GoPro Karma makes its debut on the market also the DJI Mavic Pro, remote-controlled aircraft capable of "folding" on itself and become easily transportable even inside a small backpack.

The Mavic Pro differs from the products of direct competitors not only for the size, but also for technical features and functionality of the first class. DJI, leader in the drone market, does not want to leave too much space to GoPro, which after having "invented" the action cam market, wants to try to have its say even in the field of photo drones. For this reason, the Chinese company presents itself to the general public with a remote-controlled aircraft capable of excelling both on the "aeronautical" side and on the photographic side. In short, to be the first of the "species", the DJI Mavic Pro already has all the credentials to revolutionize the market.

Technical characteristics DJI Mavic Pro

Compact, but not exactly light (weighs just over 700 grams), the Mavic Pro integrates all the features and characteristics that have made famous DJI drones. The radio-controlled aircraft combines a maximum speed of about 60 kilometers per hour (in Sport mode) with a range of 27 minutes and advanced features such as anti-collision device in flight, TapFly and precision turns.

The camera, with a maximum resolution of 4K, is equipped with a three-axis mechanical stabilizer for photos and footage clear even in the most "eventful" and unstable. Il Mavic Pro, inoltre, può essere controllato sia dal suo telecomando, sia da smartphone via app. Inoltre, gli utenti potranno impartire comandi grazie a gesture predefinite: scattare selfie con il drone (o dronie) sarà più semplice che mai.
