    Amazing picture quality in a small package

    My wife purchased me a Typhoon H+ for our anniversary however after a few days, we realized that the Mavic 2 Pro would be a better fit for our family. We returned the H+ for the M2P with DJI Racing Edition Goggles and Fly More kit. I will add reviews for those two products after this one. Lots of great things to say about the M2P however since everyone always wants to talk about what they love about products, I’m going to talk about what I don’t like about it first... - No 4K recording at 60 fps. It does 4K/30. At this level I would really have expected them to include 60 frames capability at 4K. - The gimbal protector is inadequate and as a result, there are widespread reports on the Mavic forms of people receiving drones with cosmetically damaged gimbals. Mine fortunately did not have the damage. - The Percision Landing feature which is present in the first generation Mavic has been removed. DJI has indicated they will add it back in a future firmware update. - The controller does not have the ability to hold a phone that is in any reasonably sized protective case. There are third-party accessories that you can purchase that will attach to the controller that are better suited for holding devices that are in cases or even tablet. Ok, now the really cool stuff! My favorite part of this drone is the size. Having owned a DJI Phantom 4 for approximately 2 1/2 years, I was eager to get something more portable. I am no professional photographer so I may never use some of the cameras advanced features however out of the box it takes amazing photos and video. One of the biggest selling points for me was that the M2P camera has an adjustable aperature. This is something that I am accustomed to using on my DSLR so I am very happy to find it here... something that you do not find at this price level. If you are new to drones, the M2P has what is called Tripod mode which slows everything down a bit so you can get familiar with it. There are a few other modes and autonomous features that it has but you can research those online. They are great if you have kids or want to do some really cool aerial cinematography. Another huge selling point for me was the enhanced obstacle avoidance which (depending on mode) will give you essentially 360° obstacle avoidance including top and bottom. OA It’s not a substitute for awareness and responsible flying however it can definitely save you for the times you make mistakes... it does happen. Flight time is great. It says 31 minutes however realistically if you fly your battery down to 20% You can expect closer to about 20 minutes or so depending on your flying style. Still very good in my opinion. Lastly I will mention the ability to add FPV goggles... with the DJI RE goggles, You can get for telemetry data in the headset and have complete control of the cameras movements if you so choose. You can even choose to fly the drone with head movements if you’d like. For me, I put the goggles on my kids and let them have the thrill of flying while I am buzzing around. Anyhow, I think the Mavic 2 Pro is a winner for both family/recreational use as well as some professional applications. Overall I feel that it is a good balance between camera capabilities and size. You can get better cameras in larger drones and you can get smaller drones with less of a camera. You just have to decide where you want to be.

    Best DJI product yet fun and full of amazing tools

    This is by far my favorite drone purchase yet the quality of video and the image stabilization is amazing And the three axis gimbal handles just about anything you can put out it end it never fails My favorite type of shooting video is panning or strafing from side to side. The gimbal transition, even in sport mode works really amazingly well. When you have it in cinematic mode Everything slows down a little bit and it Makes the paining turning And all movements very very very smooth in the video. But the number #1 thing of all the things I like with this drone is the fact that the camera can rotate up. (Yeah ROTATE UP) I can’t tell you how many times I have shot video with other drones and wished I could pan up to get more of the skyline or clouds or a better sunset .. so When I first used it and pan the camera up I was simply shocked and beyond excited I absolutely love it. Another great feature is that they incorporated a really super bright LED light on the bottom of the drone, there are so many reasons I am excited about this but for me i love flying my drones and when filming at night often it is wise to turn off the forward lights So the lights don’t bleed into the video. Then it makes it hard to see the drone in the air at night . Now in the air you can turn the bottom bright light on and easily Locate it also the light really helps for landing when it’s dark and for takeoff when it’s dark because of the sensors on the bottom of the drone If you like the image quality the Mavic pro two is the choice. I’m sure like you I struggled with spending the extra amount that this one cost, but now that I have it I am 100% glad that I spent the extra money to buy the Mavic pro 2 with a haszelbad camera it made all the difference I could not be happier

    I previously owned a phantom 3 standard hand had issues with range, video performance and reliability. I just couldn’t trust it. When I recently purchased the Mavic 2 pro, I didn’t expect the drastic change. I have never had one issue with the range. No silly warnings about interference, or signal level. The picture and video quality is DSLR quality. Although people complain about the price being high, it is certainly worth it. You will also find some self proclaimed experts on YouTube complaining about the most minuscule (non) issues. Remember this, people always want to be the first to report something negative. Pro’s- image quality. Stable flight (even in high winds), battery life, intelligent flight modes that actually work. Easy to fly. Cons- availability was limited. Had to order it online and have it shipped to my home. Waited all day only to have a delivery attempt made 15 minutes after I left for work. Had to pick it up the next day at a convenience store?!?! No fault of Best Buy or DJI, but UPS needs to get their act together!

    Five OMG's. This wizardry is AWESOME. I wonder why there are no American companies who build such cool things? Got it to do survey and 3d modeling work. I bought it to prevent my having to drive to a site I'm working on that is more than an hour from my home, more than I needed to. The drive is long and I prefer to avoid it if / when possible. I was going to build a top map with lasers and it was cold and rainy and it took all day just to take some preliminary pictures and measurements of the site. After going home and scratching my head a bit I was struck that Best buy has drones. So I researched and bought this one. OMG. Took my 1/2 hour to figure hour how to fly it and within an hour I had shot images in automated flight around and over my house. Within 6 hours I had tested some software (free trial) and built my first 3 d map of a site. OMG, did I say that? VERY VERY VERY happy.... even if it isn't made in America.

    After getting my "feet wet" with the DJI Phantom 3 Standard, I wanted to get an upgrade into something that could truly capture amazing photos and videos, but also be portable enough to take just about anywhere. The size and foldability of the aircraft making it really convenient to pack in the Fly More pouch and throw over my shoulder for whatever adventure I'm heading out to. Once at the site, the Mavic folds open quickly and easily, connects seamlessly with the controller and iPad, and up, up and away it goes! The camera is wonderful! You can just click the photo button, and out come spectacular photos. If you're more adept at creating full feature photos, you have a large selection of configuration changes you can make to get that "perfect" picture. The powerful Hasselblad 20MP 1” sensor grabs a massive amount of light information for fuller and more colorful pictures. I have not been disappointed with it's performance. I'm still learning how to best operate the drone and the camera, but I am fully satisfied with my purchase.

    TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE

    WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH. After the drone crashed due to the obstacle avoidance system not working, dji failed to acknowledge the issue. It's been 5 months now that I've been trying to get the drone repaired. Of course they have no phone number so you have to deal with hours of text messaging a service rep... I received multiple promises of a phone call AND email follow up from a higher up, which never came. Then they returned the drone unrepaired while I was waiting for them to respond as they promised. The drone is now back with dji and i'm starting the process all over. It's seriously the worst customer service I've ever dealt with. I finally bit the bullet and just paid the repair fee and will never purchase another product from them. Think twice before buying a dji product.

    Review from First Time Drone Owner

    First drown I've ever owned and was extremely cautious when I went to fly it for the first time. Had to read a couple of video reviews so that I was more prepared for what all the features were. I've flown it twice now and it is really an easy aircraft to fly. Even in a stiff 15mph wind it holds its own and the video quality is top notch. I wish I had more to report but I hesitated on buying a drone for a couple of years but am glad I took the plunge. Got some video of the historic flooding around here and hoping to do some flyovers of some local golf courses. There are a few features I will have to look up how to use again. Not always the most intuitive controls but once you get it up in the air flying it really isn't that difficult. Battery life is good, 25 minutes of air time really does go along way. Much further than I anticipated. Really cool piece of technology.

    Amazing compact sized drone for what it can do and produce. I found the craft flies smoother and longer with less noise than the Phantom 4. Don't get me wrong, I love my P4, but this Mavic 2 Pro has become my go to sUAS. It is fast, stable, safe and reliable. The size of the drone when folded, the charger, controller and 4 batteries can fit in a small case and weighs a fraction of my P4 drone with case does. The 20 megapixel Hasselblad camera with 1' sensor produces photos at higher resolution with so much more clarity than my P4 did. The intelligent flight modes allow me to create results that would take me too long to develop the skill to accomplish on my own. Well worth the investment!

    Getting shots that were impossible on the ground. Good video and still image quality. If you can afford it buy the insurance for 139.00. ( still charged 139.00 for crash on top of insurance) That covers to incidents for two years I think maybe one year just look into it. Used one incedent in the first month after flying. Remember sports mode does not have ant-collision so it will run into something very quickly if you can't stop it in time. Get at least one extra battery if you can. You don't just fly the entire battery life because you have to have enough juice to return to home. With that said you get down to a set battery life amount and it automatically returns to home point which is a great thing. Not a toy especially in sports mode it goes 45 mph and could seriously hurt or kill someone if hit in head. Lots of rules now to flying so follow them or get serious fines etc.

    10Bit Hassleblad, Excellent image Quality

    Posted
    eleetcomputer

    I own multiple DJI drones. This being my favorite. The reason I did not go with the Zoom version because it was simply an original Mavic with Zoom added when it comes to camera comparison. The Pro 2 blows any drone camera out of the water. If you are familiar with editing 10 bit photos then this is the drone to get. You can do huge amounts of post processing. If you don't know anything about 10 Bit photos, get the Zoom. I love everything about the Pro 2. Do some research into the camera comparisons to make the right choice. Most people, the Zoom is the better choice and offers more options. The Pro 2 is just that, aimed at Professional Photographers, not so much someone doing a lot of video, though the Pro 2 does produce spectacular video. Expect to see YouTube blow up with a bunch of Dolly Zoom videos produced by the Zoom, lol.

    I had the Mavic Air which I thought was great, but I went for the new Mavic 2 Pro for several reasons. I love the new Hasselblad 1" sensor camera, the Occusync 2, the 30 minute flight time and that's not all. The Mavic 2 Pro, although larger and heavier that the Mavic Air, is really not much bigger when it's packed up in the carrying bag that you get in the Fly more kit. It's a very well designed and good looking case that holds the Quad, 3 batteries, the controller, charger, extra props and more. Then, when you actually fly this beauty, you have to be impressed with its superior control, stability, speed, maneuverability, and even the display on the controller. This is now one of my favorite toys, and I love my toys.

    This is my first drone. I bought it for the camera capabilities (10 bit/ H265/ 4K etc) and user friendly interface. Being a first time flyer and sending 1600$ into the air was nerve racking but I knew that these things basically fly themselves and are loaded with tons of sensors. It’s been about 2 months now since my purchase and I’m still absolutely head over heels for this thing. I refer to it as “she” a lot and I’m constantly thinking of new places to fly her around. Excellent product. 11/10 would buy again.

    I have owned and used a DJI Phantom Quadcopter for 5 years. While fun to use, and capable of taking great photos with an attached GoPro camera, it had several limitations for me: short flying time (10 minutes), inability to see the imagery real-time while flying (to better frame pics and videos), and no ability for autonomous flying. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro overcomes all these limitations -- and more -- with 30' fly time per battery, real-time viewing, and multiple modes of autonomous flying. This is truly and awesome drone for recreational flyers, as well as entry-level commercial drone pilots. Be sure to pick up DJI's care refresh insurance (optional at about 10% the cost of the drone) -- these are expensive toys that are easily damaged (especially during the first year of flying).

    I bought this drone to replace the Phantom 4 Pro which was lost due to a malfunction on the controller and the drone never returned home. This is a nice drone with an excellent camera. It is quite handy as it is easy to transport. You can just fold it an put it in your pocket including the remote. It handles quite well even though its 8lbs lighter than the Phantom 4pro. I love the additional sensors. Ive flown this drone in strong winds and it handles very well. It can hover in 1 spot without being blown away however you have to watch your battery life as it tilts into the wind to compensate remaining in 1 spot. Overall this is a good drone. I just wish that the side sensors can remain active at all times without being inactive during flight.

    Very user friendly, very responsive, well worth the price, the quality of the images and the video in just raw footage look amazing. I took a huge leap buying this as my first drone ever, but with patience and practice in open fields of course first, I’m handling it like I’ve done this forever in sport mode. Invest in the good quality SD card and buy those extra batteries, and have a laptop/desktop ready to fill up. I travel a lot thru the US and have captured some great videos and images, the only thing I wish is, I wish it was waterproof, that’d open up so many different types of scenery shots. Other than that, well investment for photography/videography

    Best Drone for the Money

    Ive been flying drones since 2012 and the Mavic 2 Pro is the 6th one Ive owned. This is by far the best one. Here's why. Flight time. Image quality. Portability and advanced features like intelligent flight modes. I dont relly need collision avoidance but this one has it in all directions. My only complaint is the lens distortion / correction. The lens and distortion correction used on the jpg versions leaves building edges with lots of keystoning aka vertical perspective distortion. Other wise the whole system is hard to beat at this price level.

    I decided to try the Autel Evo because of the price. One flight in the gimbal had an issue. Sent it to Autel they “fixed” it. Took one more flight same thing with the gimbal but worse. So I took it back to Best Buy and purchased the Mavic 2 pro. Yes it’s more money but it is that much better! Camera is so much better in low light! I have no gimbal issues thing is rock solid in the sky. With the ND1000 filter it’s so steady you can capture motion blur! This camera is amazing for video and even more amazing for photos. I do not regret spending the extra money for something that works

    What can I say that hasn't been said about this drone? Smooth running, bigger camera than the MP1, longer flight time, etc. If you're buying it as your first drone it's a treat because its just a smooth flying drone and not difficult to learn. If you are upgrading you're in for a treat as well however the only downside of upgrading there are many things that don't carry over from the MP1 to the MP2-well almost nothing. The MP2 is slightly larger than the MP1 so if you had a polar pro case that MP2 isn't going to fit...but I digress. If you want one and been on the fence-this is the one.

    I've always wanted a drone but wasn't sure if I should buy one because I was sure to crash it in my first flight. It's no hard to fly it at all! Its like playing video games. In beginner mode it will show you step by step how to fly your drone with out flying it into something and damaging your product. Just make sure you read all instructions carefully and follow them as directed the rest is a piece of cake. I suggest buying Best Buy warranty is always a good idea, I have very good experience with there warranties. They always got my back, warranty never fails.
