DJI Mavic Pro Accessories – Everything you need to know

The Mavic Pro from DJI has been out for a few months now. DJI frequently releases new accessories for the Mavic Pro. This page is updated when new accessories are available, so be sure to check back often. Now check out the newest accessories for the DJI Mavic Pro!   DJI Mavic Accessories The newest items are at the top of the page. We’ve also included replacement items, so you can easily find items such as the Gimbal Cover. Just in case you lose or scratch yours, or you want to modify one. Mavic ND Filters (Mavic Pro ND Filter Set) ND or Neutral Density filters reduce the amount of light that enters the lens of the Mavic’s camera. Why would you want this? In bright conditions, the Mavic will be forced to use super quick shutter speeds, which is the opposite of what you want. For smooth cinematic footage, you should normally double your framerate (fps) as your shutter speed. When the sun is out during the day this is impossible, therefore Video-, Foto- and Cinematographers rely on ND filters. They reduce each color the same amount so there aren’t any adverse color shifts when filming with them. The filters snap onto the provided grooves on your Mavic’s camera lens. Normally you have to purchase each filter separately, but DJI offers this affordable Mavic ND Filter Combo Set. Mavic Remote Control Sunshade (Mavic Sunshade) Ever fly your Mavic and wish you could actually see what was displayed on your smartphone? This Mavic Sunshade for your Remote Control is for you. It features a magnetic flap which allows you to either fold the flap up to allow greater visibility of the built-in LCD screen; or fold it down for even more glare reducing goodness. You slip the antennas of your Mavic remote control into the provided antenna tubes. Finally, an accessory which also sets up the antennas perfectly for you! More details on the Sunshade here. Mavic Battery (Mavic Battery) Additional batteries allow you to stay in the air longer. Don’t let that perfect shot or sequence get ruined by running out of juice. Having at least 3-4 batteries allows for flexibility between filming and having to find place & time to charge. The official Mavic batteries can be found here. Mavic Car Charger (Mavic Car Charger) Speaking of charging your Mavic’s batteries while being on-the-go. The Mavic Car Charger allows you to charge the batteries and the remote control when you have a 12V socket available to you. Charging a battery takes around 55min for a full charge. Low-voltage protection ensures that your vehicle will be able to start...

Mavic Pro Unboxing – DJI’s compact drone

The new DJI Mavic Pro has revolutionized the drone industry. Up until now, the Phantom-class drone was as portable as you could get for good 4K Video and 12MP stills. The Mavic Pro changes this. Today we get to Unbox the Mavic Pro. Mavic Pro retail box First peak of the Mavic Pro Manuals and four (two for the front arms and two spares) propellers under foam packaging Cables and propeller bags removed from the retail box Everything laid out Top of the Mavic Pro drone without the front propellers installed Bottom of the Mavic Pro with gimbal cover and silicone protector still on. Right side of Mavic Pro Left side of Mavic Front arms extended into the flying position Rear arms in process of being folded out. This is about half-way unfolded to the flying configuration. Bottom of Mavic in unfolded flying configuration Top of Mavic in unfolded configuration. Mavic with front propellers and spare propellers laid out Front propellers matched up with color coded motor hub. Note the motor on the left side of the picture has 3 white stripes on the edge of the motors’ cans. The propeller with the white circle in the middle of the propeller hub goes on the motor with the white markings. The opposite motor seen on the right side of the photo, without stripes receives a matching propeller without any markings. Striped motor with matching propeller Propeller placed on top of the spring loaded motor shaft. You install the propellers by pushing down with a little force to compress the spring, then rotate until the propeller doesn’t spin further onto the motor. Releasing the propeller will lock it in place. If the propeller pops back up, twist the propeller into the other direction after pushing down on it.

BREAKING: DJI is releasing the DJI Mavic TODAY (Sept. 27th). See all the details and updates to the Leaks on this page. The DJI Mavic is here! Check it out Now! The Mavic has just been released! It features a new DJI technology called OcuSync, which appears to be the successor to Lightbridge. OcuSync claims up to 7km (4.3mi) range at 720P and 1080P streaming in closer range. It even allows transfer of videos and images taken at up to 40Mb/s while the Mavic is in the air! *DJI Mavic Release* – The Announcement Event Live Stream for the DJI Mavic Release – Adventure at your Fingertips Event will be available here. Check back Sept. 27th at 11:30 EDT New York time or subscribe to our list to be notified. DJI will stream the Event for the DJI Mavic Release live at this link here. The Event will start at 11:30 EDT Time (US), 17:30 EU (Germany, France, Spain), 23:30 China. Be notified by signing here. UPDATE 9: The DJI Mavic will be released in two Versions at launch. They will be the DJI Mavic S and the high-end DJI Mavic Pro. Pricing for the high end is rumored to be around $1299. From the release of the FCC ID sticker locations and the stickers themselves we know that there will be two versions of the DJI Mavic coming on September 27th at the live event detailed above. This goes along with earlier rumors that there will be a lower end version utilizing an ofdm (wifi) based link. This should be similar to the remote control system used in the Phantom 3 4K. The Mavic Pro will feature full-range Lightbridge as we know it on the Phantom 4. There may be further limitations to the Mavic S such as Camera Resolution, but the main thing currently is pointing to the technology used in the remote control. Speaking of remote controls, we also get a sneak peak of the bottom of the Mavic remote control, see the third FCC image below. DJI Mavic S – Model M1S DJI Mavic S – Model M1P Mavic GL200A Remote Control UPDATE 8: DJI Go App for Mavic leaked: Thanks to an anonymous source we received screenshots of a yet to be released DJI App which has placeholders for 2 different Mavic drones. Just like the Phantom 4 was codenamed Tomato the Mavic is codenamed Maverick. Hence why the screenshots show Maverick. Interestingly, there appears to be a new DJI GO PAD app mentioned. This may be a version of the Mavic with built-in display, however the leaked images do now support a built-in display...
