DJi is not one of the most, but THE most prominent developer of drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with manufacturing facilities all over the world. We could run through long lists of drones developed by DJI for different purposes and different markets but the star of the article here is their new Mavic Pro 2.
So what is so special about this particular product by the Chinese Tech giant?
The camera installed in the Mavic Pro 2 can take pictures with definition as high as 5472 x 3648 and can record videos as high as 4K which is 3840×2160 in MP4 format.
Without going into more detail about its sensors and optical powers, let us talk about the drone’s power and abilities as it flies through the air. The drone is extremely light weight for what it packs at just 1.62 lb. It can travel as 5 m/s or 18 km/hr. It is capable of continuous travel for 27 minutes. The most attractive feature of the Mavic Pro 2 is its price tag, standing at just $1,500.
While there are many reviews of the Mavic Pro 2, the one here is a particularly interesting. The Mavic Pro 2 was flown in a sand storm in the Alvert desert located in South East Oregon, USA by a Vlogger, Neumann Films.
The purpose of the YouTuber’s visit to the desert was to take family photos and video recordings of his truck driving through the desert with the drone but an unexpected sand storm led to them getting a cinematic footage of his truck driving through the desert amidst fast blowing winds in a sand storm with the Mavic Pro 2. It would be an understatement to say that the drone just satisfied its purpose.
After documenting his family’s picnic in the desert, the YouTuber’ lets the Mavic take off as the sand storm approaches from the North towards his truck. The drone records the truck from cinematically strategic positions as the truck left the desert.
In the Vlogger’s own words, “The most impressive thing about this experience … how well the Mavic Pro 2 held up in a freaking sand storm.”
