Controller & Apps
DJI Mavic Pro: The DJI Mavic Pro is a small yet powerful aerial drone.
Its compact size hides a high degree of complexity that makes it one of DJI's
most sophisticated flying cameras. 24 high-performance computing cores, an
all-new transmission system with a 4.3 mile range, 4 vision sensors, and a 4K
camera stabilized by a 3-axis mechanical gimbal are all at your command from the
Aerodynamic Design: The aerodynamic configuration of the Mavic Pro has
been redesigned according to its flying attitude and angle when moving forward.
DJI also optimized the aerodynamic efficiency of the propellers so that the
Mavic Pro can fly for longer. Its aerodynamic design and polished surfaces
reduce air resistance for excellent flight handling in up to 24mph winds.
Propulsion System w/ Folding Propellers: An improved propulsion system
ensures the DJI Mavic Pro ascends and accelerates faster. Combined with a fast
responding, highly robustness flight controller, it is able to expertly handle
strong winds while flying. Mavic Pro has 2 pairs of 8.3" foldable propellers,
each covering nearly half its length, compared to most foldable drones on the
market whose propellers are only 1/4 their length. This is possible through
elegant engineering that allows rear arms to fold below forearms, saving overall
space while allowing room for larger props.
- Max Ascent Speed: 16.4ft/s in Sport mode
- Max Descent Speed: 9.8ft/s
- Max Speed: 40mph in Sport mode without wind
- Max Height: 1640 feet
Note: Once the rotors start spinning, the centrifugal force will
automatically push the propellers into the correct position, so you don't
need to worry about not having unfolded them perfectly.
OcuSync HD Transmission: The DJI Mavic Pro utilizes a brand new OcuSync
transmission technology which offers a range of 4.3 miles and full HD 1080p/720p
video streaming between the aerial drone, the controller, and your Apple iOS or
Android mobile device. OcuSync is able to strike a perfect balance between
latency and receptivity, reducing latency to 5ms for remote controller
transmission commands, 10ms for video data and 130ms for videos. Before taking
off, OcuSync will automatically scan the environment and choose the frequency
band with the lowest interference, ensuring more stable video transmission.
During a flight, it sends key flight parameters back for viewing in the DJI GO
app and supports a maximum download speed of 40Mb/s for photos and videos.
FlightAutonomy Technology: FlightAutonomy gives the DJI Mavic Pro long
range, high precision obstacle sensing, enabling it to scan its environment in
3D before taking off. FlightAutonomy ensures the Mavic precisely locates
obstacles around it to brake and maneuver around them. FlightAutonomy is made up of 7 components including 5
cameras (forward and downward dual vision sensors and the main camera),
dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), 2 ultrasonic rangefinders,
redundant sensors, and a group of 24 powerful, specialized computing cores. As
the Mavic flies, dual forward and downward vision sensors measure the distance
between itself and obstacles by taking photos from all four cameras and using
the information to create a 3D map that tells it exactly where obstacles are.
The dual forward and downward vision sensors require visible light to function,
and in bright light can see as far as 49' out in front.
Notes: This obstacle avoidance system is activated in every Intelligent
Flight Mode including all ActiveTrack modes, TapFly and Terrain Follow. It is
also available during automatic Return to Home, so that the Mavic can easily
make its way back without bumping into anything in its path.
Precision Hover & Return Home Landing: Through the use of dual forward vision
sensors, the DJI Mavic Pro is able to see obstacles in 3-dimensions up to 49' in
front, increasing positioning accuracy to 2-3x that of an Optical Flow system.
It also allows the speed of the aircraft to be calculated, enabling precise
hovering at up to 33' without satellite positioning. Dual forward vision sensors
allow it to calculate its current location and speed of flight by observing the
scene in front, further increasing positioning accuracy. Thanks to this precise
hovering technology, the Mavic Pro is able to automatically land almost exactly
where you took off. Every time you take off, the two downward facing vision
sensors record a burst of video of the ground below and pair it with satellite
coordinates. When you tell the Mavic Pro to fly home, it will return to that
coordinate, match the video, and land back at your feet.
Redundant IMU & Compass Sensors: The DJI Mavic Pro employs dual IMUs
and dual compasses. The IMU acquires the angle, speed, and acceleration of the
Mavic Pro, so if it functions abnormally, it could negatively affect flight. The
compass is used to know where the drone is heading, ensuring it flies in the
right direction, and allowing it to return to home automatically. Without the
compass, the Mavic Pro would lose its ability to navigate. This is why DJI has
made these sensors in the Mavic Pro redundant with two sets of sensors working
simultaneously. Whenever the system detects an inconsistency in one, it switches
to the other, keeping your flight steady and reliable.
ActiveTrack: The Mavic Pro with ActiveTrack technology is engineered to
detect and recognize a number of common subjects including people, bike riders,
vehicles and even animals. Once you have marked your subject, you can create a
huge variety of shots depending on the mode you are in. Choose from Trace,
Profile or Spotlight, to give every scene you shoot a professional touch. When
the Mavic Pro is tracking, you can even select exactly where you want them in
the frame, for more control over your final shot.
- Trace: Follows behind or in front of your subject, or
circle it as it moves at a constant distance
- Profile: Flies alongside your subject at a constant
angle and distance.
- Spotlight: Keeps the camera pointed on your subject while you fly
Intelligent Flight Modes: The DJI Mavic Pro offers a variety of
flight modes that are convenient and fun for both beginner and advanced pilots.
- TapFly Mode: Thanks to its intelligent vision technology, the DJI
Mavic Pro is extremely smart. In TapFly mode, you can simply tap a point on
the touchscreen of your smartphone and the Mavic Pro will fly towards that
point directly. If you tap another point, it will smoothly turn to the new
destination. In TapFly mode, Mavic Pro's onboard obstacle sensing systems
are constantly scanning in front of it, keeping it away from any
obstructions, freeing you up to admire the view.
- Terrain Follow: When you are flying over changing terrain, like
following bikers riding uphill, the Mavic Pro's Terrain Follow function uses
height information gathered by the onboard ultrasonic system, and its
downward facing cameras to keep you flying at the same height above the
ground even as the ground moves. Just set the height from the ground (9' to
33') you want and focus on getting the right shot.
- Gesture Mode for Selfies: In Gesture Mode, the DJI
Mavic Pro's Vision System can recognize your gestures. Raise your arms or
wave to it and the Mavic Pro will follow you or take selfies for you. You
can put away your smartphone and controller, all you need is a gesture.
- Tripod Mode: Tripod Mode limits the DJI Mavic Pro's
maximum speed to just 2.2mph, and the control stick sensitivity of the
remote controller is slowed to give you the precision you need for accurate
framing. It is also great for flying indoors in small spaces where the Mavic
Pro's normal speed may make it more challenging to fly.
Sport Mode: Sport Mode was designed for fun, giving the DJI
Mavic Pro a top speed of 40mph, all the while ramping up agility and
responsiveness, to give you a taste of drone racing. You can also use it to
film something fast, or zip out to catch a shot before the moment passes.
Even in Sport Mode, the Mavic Pro will stop almost instantly if you let go
of the controls, so no matter how fast you go, you can stop at any time.
Note: The Forward Vision System is disabled in Sport mode, which means
the aerial drone will not be able to automatically avoid obstacles on its route.
Flight Recorder: Flight data is automatically recorded to
the internal storage of the aircraft. This includes flight telemetry, aircraft
status information, and other parameters. To access this data, connect the
aircraft to your computer through it microUSB port and the included microUSB-to-USB

4K Camera: The included 4K camera uses core technologies found in all DJI cameras. It is equipped with a 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor
(12.71 total pixels / 12.35M effective pixels),
commonly found in professional sports cameras, and an aerial imaging optimized
integrated lens with an equivalent focal length of 28mm, FOV (field of view) of
78.8°, and focus range of is 1.64' to infinite. There is a 2x digital zoom, but
no optical zoom. The camera has an ISO Range of 100-3200 (for video) and 100-1600 for
3-Axis Gimbal: To provide true 4K aerial video and a smooth
live feed, the Mavic Pro is equipped with the smallest high-precision 3-axis
gimbal that DJI has ever made. With brushless motors on all three axes
(pitch/roll/yaw), the gimbal can control the camera with precision, adjusting it
to eliminate shake caused by movement from the Mavic Pro.
- Tilt & Roll Adjustments: It has an adjustable pitch from -90°
to +30° for a total tilt of 120°.
It also has an adjustable roll of 0°
(horizontal) or 90° (vertical) for
portrait or landscape shooting modes.
- Follow or FPV Mode: Two gimbal operations modes are available. In
the Follow mode, the angle between the gimbal's orientation and aircraft's
nose remains constant at all times. In FPV mode, the gimbal will synchronize
with the movement of the drone to provide a first-person perspective flying
Up to 4K Video: The DJI Mavic Pro's 3-axis gimbal 4K camera
can shoot smooth video up to 4K (60Mbps max video bitrate). Video recording

system is able to obtain accurate battery level. This allows it to calculate
remaining flight times more accurately. It also gives pilots a full
understanding of the overall battery status, including real-time battery cell
status, circle number, temperature and more, and all in the DJI GO app on your
BMS (Battery Management System): As well as monitoring the battery status during flight, the BMS
(Battery Management System) also has overcharge and over discharge protection,
reducing the likelihood of battery damage. When not in use for extended periods
of time, DJI Intelligent Flight Battery automatically discharges to 50% charge,
keeping it at an optimum charge level for extended battery life. When flying in
cold temperatures, the BMS will activate low-temperature protection and will
control power output according to the temperature. This ensures the battery can
provide adequate propulsion without damage from the cold.
