Mavic Pro Platinum: DJI's whisperer offers more flight time

Thursday, August 31st, 2017 | Gadgets

With the Mavic Pro Platinum, DJI has virtually presented a successor to the drone Mavic Pro at the Ifa 2017 in Berlin. This is an improvement of the old model, but it is clearly noticeable. The Platinum version is much quieter than the predecessor or the mini-car maker Spark. At the fair we found the noise of the hotel pleasant. According to DJI, both the rotor blades and the engine have been optimized. With the new blades, the old drone is also quieter, but not so quietly as the Platinum version, as DJI told us on demand.

It is also promised an increase of the flight time by about 11 percent. According to the manufacturer this is now 30 minutes. Also the battery should be compatible, but the paint is different. According to the data sheet nothing has changed in capacity, so that the new battery in the old drone should not offer any advantages. Not all accessories will be compatible. With the new rotors the old propeller protection can no longer be used, the DJI sold separately.

The other technical data does not change compared to the old Mavic. Further, 4K videos are recorded with 30 frames per second, an obstacle detection ensures the pilot with pilot errors and the drone is also suitable for racing. DJI is asking for the new model about 100 euros more. The price increases to 1,300 euros.

DJI also introduced the new Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian Edition. Changes are only available in appearance. The new model looks more elegant, but is the same as the performance data. The model is located above the Mavic Pro with around 1,700 euros.
Both new releases will be delivered in September 2017. A Fly-More-Combo is also planned for the Mavic Pro Platinum. An availability date does not yet call DJI.
