DJI Mavic Pro Unboxing & First Flight (+ download my 4K test footage)

I recently got the new DJI Mavic Pro drone and wanted to do an unboxing/first flight test to show you guys.

(scroll down to download the 4K footage from my first flight)

In this video, I show you it’s super tiny size compared to the Phantom 4, as well as how it unfolds, how to put the props on, how to insert your smart device into the controller, how to switch it to wifi mode and of course I show you everything that comes inside the box!

I have to say I was originally thinking this would just be a little backup drone that I would bring along with my bigger Phantom but I have been blown away by the Mavic Pro.

I say that because I have been finding myself flying it more than my Phantom just because it is so easy to carry around, the imagery looks great and it flies so well.

Stay tuned as I plan on doing a full review of it in the near future.

  1. Thanks for sharing this video with us! I just started with an official drone course last week. I won’t buy one until the course is finished, but I already consider the Mavic Pro or the Phantom Pro 4. I might want to go with the Mavic Pro as it is very small to carry, but on the other hand I wonder if I won’t miss the larger 1″ sensor on the Phantom. There are also some other options the Phantom has to offer. So, I’m really looking forward to your side-by-side comparison.

    • Hi Serge, I completely understand your situation! While I have been very impressed with the Mavic, one trade off is the quality of the imagery is a little below the Phantom. For some the small size might be worth it but for others who need the best image quality the Phantom may be the way to go. My plan is to just hang on to both so I have the option to switch between the two. I hope to have my review in next month. Stay tuned and thanks for the comment!
