Chinese drone-maker DJI announced its new flying machine Mavic Pro. It has a 12mp camera with 3-axis Gimbal stabilisation that can record 4k videos at 30fps, but the emphasis here is the design and the possibility of contraction of the blades in the body with its compact dimensions.

A few days ago GoPro introduced its first drone Karma, that works with the similar action cameras and has retractable blades in the name of a more compact size.

DJI Mavic Pro has an inbuilt visual navigation system, with a transmission range up to 4.3 miles (7 km) and it can fly maximum 27 minutes in one charge.

Price and Availability

According to official Press Release, Mavic Pro will be available in the U.S. at a retail price of $999 with the remote controller and $749 without the remote controller.
Mavic Pro is now available for pre-order at and DJI will start shipping from October 15.
