Press Release: DJI Revolutionizes Personal Flight With New Mavic Pro Drone



It was only last week that GoPro announced their foldable Karma drone and now DJI has stolen some thunder from GoPro and announced their own foldable drone called Mavic Pro. It can easily fit in a backpack or a large purse. The arms and propellers tuck into the Mavic. So no more having to remove the propellers. Essentially, its a Phantom 4 in a foldable form factor and a few more features.

Mavic Pro promises an encrypted 4.3-mile range, with support for 1080p streaming to an attached smartphone. So you can stream to Facebook Live, Periscope and YouTube via the DJI companion app in the same way Phantom-series drones do.


Here are some of the Mavic Pro’s main specs:
  • Flight time: Up to 27 minutes
  • Range: 7km (4.3 miles) with controller
  • Camera specs: 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 96fps, 12Mp photos in RAW or JPG
  • Max speed: 40mph
  • Stable flight in winds up to 24mph
  • Obstacle avoidance: up to 22mph
  • Weight: 743g

The newly designed controller can be used on its own, or has fold-out arms which hold a smartphone. The controller’s screen shows key flight stats such as altitude, distance and remaining battery life. It has dedicated buttons for return-to-home and a pause button to stop the drone while it’s flying in its automatic modes. On the right-hand side is a switch for quickly flipping to Sport mode.

The Mavic Pro will go on sale in mid-October for the price of $999 Mavic Pro with controller or $749 without controller and you use your phone via WiFi to control the drone.

KARMA – Much More Than a Drone.


Karma is sleek and compact. GoPro moved the location of the 3-axis camera stabilizer to the front instead of the bottom. So no more seeing the propellers. Karma features a compact, fits-in-a-small-backpack design and includes an image-stabilization grip that can be handheld or mounted to vehicles, gear and more. Karma makes it easy for anyone to capture amazingly smooth, stabilized video during almost any activity.

Karma features a painless out-of-the-box experience unlike any other drone in the market:
  • Compact and foldable, the entire system fits into the included backpack that's so comfortable to wear during any activity, users will forget they've got it on.
  • A game-style controller features an integrated touch display, making it fun, fast and easy to fly without the need for a separate phone or tablet to see what your drone sees.
  • The 3-axis camera stabilizer can be removed from the drone and attached to the included Karma Grip for capturing ultra-smooth handheld and gear-mounted footage.
Karma will be available October 23rd in the following bundles:
  • Karma without a GoPro camera for $799.99 MSRP
  • Karma bundled with HERO5 Black for $1099.99 MSRP
  • Karma bundled with HERO5 Session for $999.99 MSRP (available in early 2017)
