New DJI Mavic Pro Platinum and Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian
At the IFA show floor , DJI anounced two new models of drones DJI Mavic Pro Platinium and Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian.
New DJI Mavic Pro Platinum
New upgraded DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is capable to fly longer and it’s the king of the silence 😉 DJI Mavic Pro Platinum has all great features of previous version of DJI Mavic Pro as :
Obstacles Avoidance System
7km of range
Follow Me modes
4K UHD Camera on 3-axis Brushless Gimbal
Portable build with folding arms
But two extra features have been added (for sure) ; super silent feature , which means that new Mavic Pro Platinum is 60% much quieter (4dB lower noise ) then Mavic Pro and the time of flight has been increased from 21 minutes to 30 minutes, thanks to battery with larger capacity. The fans of new Mavic Platinum version might also buy new version of propellers .
There were also a rumors, that DJI will increase the quality of the build of Mavic Platinum and 4K camera will have 60fps, instead 30fps, but I’ve checked on DJI website and it’s still 30 fps… No official info about the new construction of Mavic Platinum, but it might a true like in case of Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian.
The only con is that price also has been upgraded 🙁 For new Platinum version we need to spend more, but on the second hand it’s obvious :), we always pay more for more advanced technology and about 100$ is not a fortune 🙂 New Mavic version it’s available on DJI store in pre-order. The fans of new Mavic Platinium version might aslo buy new version of propellers – Low-Noise Quick-Release Propellers.
Also the good news is that if new DJI Mavic Platinum hit the drone market, then the older version might be cheaper 🙂
Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian
If we speak about new Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian …. In my opinion there will be no sensation upgrades, except for new design- “obsidian” paint and some plastic parts will replaced with stronger ones . All other super features of cult DJI Phantom 4 Pro stay the same, so we can call Phantom Obsidian new edition of DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
New Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian will available on this month (September) on DJI Store.
DJI has decided to surprise its fans and upgrade already cult models. There also a surprise for DJI Spark users – Sphere mode , that allows the user to take aerial 360 degree panoramic photo and convert it to a realistic looking planet.
