    Seriously Addictive Platform

    This is a wonderfull addition to the DJI platforms. It is as described and should remain relevant for the next few years. I returned the Mavic Air for the Pro Zoom and am not disappointed. The big wins for me includes the quietness (it does make a difference), extended battery life, zoom camera, remote control, and the connectivity. I think the Air is great but per my experience, the Pro is a much more serious platform. There is a minor learning curve but this is very easy to fly. My only complaints thus far are the strobes cannot be seen after a short distance and needs to be much brighter. The same for the color as it truly blends with the environment after 100 ft or so. Also, the propellers are very light thus easily damaged but again, all things considered, this is a great platform! I highly recommend and you will not be disappointed if you decide to spend the extra funds for this system. I also recommend a high capacity memory card. As always, please do your research before purchasing as BB has a 15% restocking fee. Hope this helps.

    LOVE MY DRONE

    After months and months of reviews and endless youtube videos I finally made the purchase of this drone. I couldn't me any more happier with this drone. I took the baby steps and followed all the beginner mode settings and slowly expanded the limits. Now I fly with the confidence that my drone will not fail me. Several of my friends have the original Mavics and a Phantom. This Mavic 2 zoom is substantially quieter. The camera resolution on pictures and video is perfect for any user. if you're a movie maker or one who takes photography to another level then get the pro. But for those that have PS the zoom shoots RAW and you get killer post edits. The photo attached to this review had no post edit. The only negative is on the controller for the phone connection it wont stay in the slide slot. On youtube review i have seen they reviewers take it out. . My avg flight time in regular flying mode has been 28 min with constant flying. the return to home feature is pretty accurate and a huge plus for those who fly to the limits.

    choosing the Mavic 2 Zoom took me a while. I originally had the Phantom 4 Pro Advanced. Crashed it. Sad. Wanted to replace it with the same model. DJI discontinued it. Tried to order it, never received it. Realized I had to go with a Mavic. The American Consumer in me naturally felt that the Pro was better based on price and lens. However, a business partner of mine was getting it. So I felt like we needed to have one of each, not 2 of the same. On the flip side, I didn't want to have the inferior machine. Watched dozens of video reviews on YouTube. Spoke to several experienced drone pilots. Mixed reviews. For night time shooting, the Pro is the only way to go. However, my Phantom 4 Pro had the 1" sensor and I may have a shot at getting it repaired. The zoom on the Zoom made for some great opportunities with real estate shooting and landmark shooting as well as offering that parallax effect that can sometimes really create a wow factor. Ultimately, went with the zoom. My photos are spectacular and my videos are as well. Post production allows for me to do whatever I need to do and for daytime shooting, the difference between the Zoom and the Pro is almost unnoticeable. However, at night, it's almost useless. I managed to get a few great shots of well lit cities but I'm sure the Pro would've done better. All in all, if you're going to be shooting in daylight, go with the zoom. The zoom feature is amazing.

    This is my first drone and I bought it on the recommendation from a friend who owned the older Mavic drone. First, this thing is super easy to fly and because of all the sensors it is smart enough to not crash into objects. The software is very intuitive and while overwhelming, I do recommend looking at a few YouTube videos on how to interact with the software settings. It will help you understand why the drone does some of the things you may not notice at first. Additionally, something I highly recommend when you fly the drone is ALWAYS SET YOUR HOME POINT and wait for the audio indication (the voice) that it has been set. This way you can rest assured that if your drone ever loses communication with the controller, or the battery runs low, that your drone wil return home. One last thing, there are a few good mobile apps that compliment the DJI software really well. Get UAV Forecast (iOS) and AIRMAP (iOS). Both of them have great information not found in the DJI app like weather conditions, whether or not it’s optimal to fly your drone, etc.

    This drone is amazing, I returned it because of issue with gps and compass and told it was a defect. Ended up exchanging it for the same drone and I was happy. As I used it more I realized that the difference between the original pro and the zoom was very minimal. The only true difference was the zoom which was really cool. I ended up returning the drone and getting the dji pro 2 instead and let me tell you I don’t regret it. The difference between the zoom and pro is huge the camera on the pro is way way better by far. Image quality is way better video quality is better as well as low light is way better. I really highly suggest buying the pro 2 if you can cash out the extra $200. But in other hand the zoom is great as well for the average consumer. The zoom to be honest was a great drone but coming from the original pro to the zoom wasn’t a huge difference to me so my decision to get the pro 2 was a no brainer. The zoom is a great drone don’t get me wrong. Not saying is bad at all but wish the camera was better. Other then that I highly suggest getting the zoom if you can’t get the pro 2 both are great drones.

    At first the Mavic 2 lived up to the hype but after two weeks the problems arose flying about 200ft up it dropped out of the sky after searching for 2/3hrs we found it, broken arm and motors. I sent it back in for repairs to DJI and three weeks later a new or refurbished Mavic 2 zoom was sent. I was greatful of course. But that’s when one thing after another, now it’s a battery error that caused it to drop to the ground from 5ft, no damage however now for the 3rd time I have to send it back which means three more weeks without my expensive $1400 dollar equipment (one of the three times was my fault). However this was all within a two month time frame. What’s disappointing is I was the item as. Treatment for my PTSD (service connected). When I have the goggles on and flying it allows my brain to redirect and place my mind in a calming place which I was amzazed that a drone would help bring peace within. Either way, now I’m contemplating a newer, better and more sophisticated drone. And the way it looks I don’t believe a DJI product will be its.

      Hey ChillWill, the situation you've described sounds very frustrating and we're sorry for any poor experiences you've had. The issue you are describing is exceedingly rare so it's unlikely to affect you ever again. We hope your aircraft arrives soon so you can fly with your Goggles and use your Mavic 2 to take you to that calming place. DJISupport

    Amazing drone

    This is my 3rd DJI drone and it's just amazing. I had the Phantom 3 Standard, Spark, and now this guy which is finally perfect all around. Range is great - I've taken it out 3 miles. 360 collision avoidence, 32 min flight time, 4K and true optical zoom. The software is great, polished and user friendly, smart AI. Only downside that people should be aware of is that if you are a DJI Goggles owner, standard or Racing Edition, there is a transmission problem that is widely reported among users that severely limits the drone's video transmission range using the goggles to around 1000 ft. DJI is yet to acknowledge or provide a fix, but it's suspected to be due to the stock controller. However, if you get the Smart Controller or combo with that newer controller, the issue goes away, so be aware of that. DO NOT buy the combo with the regular controller and either of the Goggles or you will be very disappointed!

    Absolutely love this drone! Bought it for taking some cool videos during vacations. Easy to operate, video quality is A-mazing! Zoom feature and dolly zoom is awesome. I watched many YouTube videos to learn how to use the manual mode for video and taking awesome pics. Didn’t really care for the pro version (first time I’ve ever heard of Hasselblad, which tells you how much I really know about photography and care). Overall, for my purpose this is the best fit! It’s an expensive toy. Make sure to get DJI Care Refresh. I also bought the State Farm drone insurance ($60/year, covers any accidents/lost/stolen/not recoverable drone around the globe...Yes Anywhere in the world) since I travel a lot this was worth it for me. Make sure to get some ND filters before you head out to the beach. Fly responsibly!

    What can I say DJI speaks for itself!!! This drone is flawless! I have researched for a while and have been conflicted on a “perfect drone for me”. My biggest concern was the price, I wasn’t big on paying that kind of money for something I was worried I would crash. But let me tell you with this drones sensors it’s almost impossible. After I flew it a few times and got the hang of the controls I was flying with confidence. The quality of the video and picture performance of this thing are absolutely amazing. It is so smooth as well so it makes for absolute amazing video quality. The zoom feature is just an added bonus. For the professional photographer/videographer this is a must for your arsenal. There are so many settings to capture endless shots! If you honestly want a drone get this one, you will be glad you did!

    The drone itself may be good, but it doesn't work! We took it out of the box, and it said it needed to update. So we plugged it all in and started to update it. After about an hour it popped up with an error and we had to start over. I have now tried updating it over a dozen times on different phones, iPads, computers etc and have had zero luck. I brought it back to Best Buy and they refused to help me. I haven't even been able to fly the drone yet, but they still would not exchange the item unless I paid them a $300 restocking fee. Absurd that I would have to pay $300 to exchange an item that they sold me that never worked. So I decided to contact DJI, and they are absolutely NO help! If you want to risk buying this product then I hope it works! If it doesn't, then be prepared to fight with Best Buy and DJI.

    Getting a different perspective on the world is a treat. Give yourself a day to get this drone set up. There is a lot to do: unpack, charge battery pack, charge controller, update firmware on drone, update firmware on controller, register drone with FAA, calibrate, simulate, practice. The Fly More kit is recommended because after all of the above is done you may need to charge the battery pack again, however keep in mind that the Fly More kit's four-battery station only charges one battery at a time. I was surprised by how quiet this drone is and by how well the sensors performed around buildings and trees. A lower price would be nice, but for the technology and capabilities packed into this drone and controller it shows that a lot of design thought went into it. For a newbie pilot, this drone is easy to fly and helps prevent the accidents that could have happened if it didn't have the extra sensors.

    In March I purchased a Spark from Best Buy. The Spark is a great, really fun drone. When the Mavic 2 Zoom came out, I was ready for another drone. Since this has a zoom camera, I thought it was the perfect time to add a second. This drone is bigger, but quieter than the Spark. The fact that it has a 5 mile range is just downright exciting! So far I have had it 1.8 miles out and had no image lag or stutter. Someday I will push it to the limit and see how far it can go. This drone is perfect. Easy to fly, handles great, takes great photos and videos. Great battery life also. And scary fast! If you’re looking for your next drone, this is it!

    I had planned to snag an original Mavic when the new models came out and that notion quickly went out when I was looking into the features. The camera on the zoom is amazing and the dolly feature really adds that extra bit of spin to your footage to make them stand out. Make sure and watch videos before jumping right into it (it will need to charge anyway) and pick up a fly more kit, the extra batteries help you continue to practice when the included battery dies. More than anything, fly in an open area your first time! Dont go too crazy seeing how fast it is. While it IS fast, it does have a slight delay when it is further away from you to stop/slow it down. Dont want to crash it in the trees your first go!

    Best if used with apple products

    I've been testing drones for use in the area with an android phone, no brands mentioned here. I read the box when picking up the drone and it states made for apple IOS, on the box I could not find android compatible anywhere. Geek Squad gave mixed answers and online I found a DJI specs page showing only IOS devices. In the past when working in animation we found cross platform issues when any program was "designed for" IOS. I could not take the risk until I see any posts online testifying to their personal usage with an android device. At the very least I suggest reading the box for yourself. If you feel safe flying $1200 across the sky on a maybe it works scenario be my guest but I won't be trying that any time soon. With that said, I am putting a lot of thought into an iPad, so I can use this amazing bird!

    Awesome Upgrade from Mavic 1

    Posted
    ajaytheceo

    I have the Zoom model and it is such an upgrade to the previous model. The 360 sensors are great. It is a bit heavier in the hand. The internal 8 GB of storage is great. I still use an additional memory card. Recording will not roll over to the card when the internal memory is used up. The added hyperlapse quickshots make these so much easier to make. As of this time, the DJI crystal sky has not been updated to work with the mavic 2.

    I bought this as an upgrade from my Mavic Pro. And it truly is an upgrade. It does everything the Mavic Pro did but only better. A couple things stand out immediately; It's much more quiet than any other DJI drone and feels faster. The updated/upgraded gimbal is also a nice change. It's much more sturdy looking and feeling. Image and video quality are excellent as usual for a DJI drone. Some of the new Intelligent flight modes are nice, but I don't tend to use those alot. I have other DJI drones, but this one does everything well and is m "go to" drone.

    Bought the Mavic 2 Zoom to take on vacation to Hawaii. Watched the tutorial videos, played with the simulator a bit, and then took it out for a flight along the shore. Stunning 4K video using the automatic modes. Can't wait to become more proficient with this amazing device. The obstacle-avoidance features definitely added a good measure of confidence. Be sure to put this drone into one of the modes that employ these features.

    It's amazing how much of a difference the zoom on the camera makes. The light on the bottom that you can turn on and off manually is fantastic as well, especially for keeping the drone in sight in difficult to see conditions. Very difficult shots previous to the zoom are now effortless, and with the camera set to 1080/30fps the range of the zoom is phenomenal- who would have thought you could get macro shots with a drone!? Best drone for the money available in my opinion!

    By far one of the best if not the best drone I’ve flown! Started with a Karma (spare me) and almost immediately went to a Mavic Air. The drones features like the optical zoom and 30 min (approx) flight time are great upgrades to the drone. It is also incredible as to how quiet the drone flies!! The transmission range is superb with no loss in image quality. If you’re looking to upgrade this drone is highly recommended! The only con is that I can’t really carry this drone in my backpack like the Air.

    Love This Drone And I Would Say That The Image And Video Quality Is Very Similar To The Older Mavic Pro But With The Addition Of Zoom But 2x Optical Zoom Is Not Alot Wish It Was A Little More. My Average Battery Run-time Is Only About 25 Minutes Not The 31 Minutes As Advertised. But All In All This Is A Good Drone But If You Are Looking For Very Good Quality Pictures And Videos Look At The Mavic 2 Pro. I Have Both Drones And The Mavic 2 Pro Has Way Better Quality Images And Video.
