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.

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.
