DJI's New Mavic Pro Platinum Promises Longer & Quieter Flights

DJI's New Mavic Pro Platinum Promises Longer & Quieter Flights

It is the new propellers and the internal speed controllers that work together in making the Mavic Pro less noisier.

DJI has upgraded its Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro drone hardware, and added new software features to the tiny DJI Spark, its smallest consumer drone. Users can also purchase the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Fly More Combo, which comes with an additional battery, extra propellers, a carrying bag and the remote control for $1,399 or £1,459 (about AU$1,760). The only differences are when it comes to flight time and the noise the drone creates. With a retail price of 1,119 GBP (1,299 EUR), the Mavic Pro Platinum is now available for pre-order and will begin shipping later this month. Alternatively, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ Obsidian Edition, which features a remote control with a built in Android tablet for $1,799 or £1,819 (about AU$2,260).

The centerpiece of this announcement is the Mavic Pro Platinum.

Adams clashes with DUP over insistence on Irish language act
It is very different rhetoric from that of February when she said defiantly: "I will never accede to an Irish language act". Talks were expected to restart at Stormont between the five main parties within the next week or two.

The iconic Phantom 4 Pro drone which made professional aerial imaging easier for everyone is back with a new professional appearance; a sleek matte-gray Obsidian colour shell featuring a magnesium, electroplated and anti-fingerprint coated gimbal which requires a higher standard manufacturing technique.

More information about the new sphere mode and DJI Spark is available on the DJI website. The drone similar to other drones from DJI features FlightAutonomy technology, a range of 7 km, obstacle detection and weights similar to the Phantom 4. Once it rolls out with DJI's upcoming software updates, you'll be able to use the mode to capture panoramic photos with a fisheye lens effect. The new feature will be included soon in the forthcoming DJI GO 4 mobile app and Spark firmware updates.

While this isn't a change in image quality or frame rate or the things we generally associate with camera updates, keep in mind that both of those updates make the Mavic Pro so much more usable on site.
