DJI recently released a whole new model based on DJI Mavic Pro drone. DJI Mavic Pro stands for the best-selling drone not only from DJI company but all together on the market. Low price, advanced performance and lots of high technology features made this drone number one choice among many of the drone pilots. And because of that, it is entirely reasonable from DJI to release a new version of the most popular drone. If you are looking for the new drone, you should really read reviews about DJI Mavic Pro 2 because they will explain to you what you get for your money.
Foldable Mavic 2 Pro
DJI Mavic Pro vs. DJI Mavic Pro 2
Actually, I will be talking about three models, Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic Pro. Mavic 2 Zoom is a slightly different model than the Pro version, and it may be very interesting to the specific people.
First, we will talk about cost and from the start say that the new Mavic Pro 2 and Zoom are expensive than the old model and that is normal. but the higher price puts the question on the board: “Is it worth to upgrade to DJI Mavic Pro 2?”
Unfortunately, everyone should answer that question on their own. I can only put good and bad things on the paper, and the final decision is up to you. But let just say that the Mavic Pro 2 is 50% more expensive and DJI Mavic 2 Zoom 25%. In other words, you can get a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom which is a specific drone but still better than the old Mavic Pro for just 25% larger price.
Weight and Size
There is a drastic change in the weight of the drone, and that is mainly because the new models have more power and better flight performance. The size of the drone is not that different, new models are a few inches larger. Overall there is no drastic change in the design, and the new model looks just as good as the old one and maybe even better.
DJI Mavic 2 Pro Frontside
Mavic Pro is well known for magnificent flying performance. Old model could stay in the air for up to 30 minutes, minimum 27 minutes. Now the new models are capable of staying even longer, 31 minutes. The range of the old model was 7 kilometers, but the new model can do 8 kilometers. The range is significant on the new models, and without a doubt, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a severe drone capable of flying really far. I should also mention the speed increase to 45mph, which is a 5MPH increase, the old model was doing 40 miles per hour.
Obstacle Avoidance System
Mavic Pro is well known for advanced technology in obstacle avoidance. The old model was using two directions cameras which were working very good at making the Mavic Pro stay in the air safely. But the new model is superior with 6 directions camera and infrared technology. This highly advanced obstacle avoidance technology grants you a safe flying even if you are not a professional drone pilot.
Only Consumer Drone with Optical Zoom
DJI Mavic 2 Zoom is the only drone with an optical zoom. Optical zoom is not large, only 2x, but that 2x optical zoom will give you magnificent videos and new ways of making new viral videos from the sky. Maybe DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a drone with the best camera that is mounted on a foldable drone, but you should also consider getting a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom instead just because of that optical sensor.
DJI Mavic is a model that can be used for various purposes. We already listed this model as a good hunting drone and the new version is even better for that purpose. If you don’t own an old version of Mavic Pro and you want to buy Mavic, then I can highly suggest purchasing the best drone on the market at this moment, and that is DJI Mavic 2 Pro. By paying little extra money from the start, you are getting the latest advanced technology UAV. In case you already have DJI Mavic Pro, and you are thinking to upgrade, well, if you have money to burn then do it. If you don’t have money and you are not in drone business, then you are good with an old version. One minute longer time in the air and 1 kilometer longer range is not worth to pay that extra cash. If you can put the old model in and pay 50% of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, then you should consider the offer, but everything else is not worth to dump the old DJI Mavic Pro because it is a still one of the best drones on the market.
