So, the first thing I did this morning after I woke up was to look through the DJI Mavic announcement. And it did not disappoint!
If you could take the Phantom 4, shrink it, make it better and make it totally portable (which was my biggest gripe), you’d get the Mavic. Did I mention it’s cheaper as well?
Here’s my reaction below:
So… yeah, I ordered one! It’s not to say that I don’t think there might be some short comings to the new drone. My concerns are:
- given the camera is so close to the body, do the propellors get in the way?
- how reliable is it given even the propellors fold?
- why does this drone need a camera protector? and do you get internal reflections?
- what’s the catch? how is this “better” but cheaper than the Phantom 4?
I suppose a comparison between the two will be the decider so I can’t wait to get my hands on one. If you’re on the market for one too, or DJI products in general, order yours here and support what I do (thank you!).
