DJI Mavic 2 Pro: What we expected, what we got and where we go from here

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro. We’ll look at the Pro version and not the zoom (yet).

What’s the difference

Again, don’t compare this with the Mavic Air or even the Spark. This is to be compared with the Mavic Pro (1).

  • Front, back and sides obstacle avoidance sensors
  • Slightly larger but still foldable, the larger size felt more stable when in the air
  • Improved camera
  • Hyperlapse (this is addictive)
  • Longer battery life

Hyperlapse

The Mavic 2 Pro has brought aerial hyperlapse to a whole new level where even beginners with a few taps can shoot these wonderfully great looking hyperlapse(s).

It exceeded some expectration. All around obstacle avoidance and the bottom auxillury light is a good add on.

The size is still managable, it’s slightly bigger than the Mavic (1) Pro.

Smart Controller

The DJI Smart Controller for the Mavic 2 Pro is beautifully made. I think the weight could be reduced a little but it seems the super bright screen does need more battery life.

Precise Fly Safe Database (PFSD)

If you have updated your PFSD to Version 01.00.01.14, you’ll be swearing a lot.

Grey limits you to 150 meters. Some overlapping areas do not allow you totake off at all.

We’ve done some unlocking as we hold permits for a year long project. It does seem to work on unlocking some areas without asking us to produce our permits.
