In recent years, drones have become smarter flyers, faster racers and better photographers. But for the most part, they’re still too big and bulky to carry around comfortably, which can turn off more-casual consumers. Not so with DJI’s Mavic Pro, it’s got all the trimmings of a state-of-the-art drone—obstacle-avoidance technology, a 4K camera and the ability to track subjects while flying—but it can also fold down to the size of a loaf of bread, smaller than any of its competitors.
Realising that goal required DJI’s engineering team to “rethink all the aspects” of a typical drone, the Mavic Pro is more nimble and less prone to accidents—yet another selling point that could attract new users. The size is probably one of the biggest advantages of the drone and that too without the compromises to the features of the drone.
