News DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom – All information

The DJI Mavic Pro has become the flagship of the Chinese drone manufacturer and has replaced the Phantom as the best-known model. Now a direct successor model seems to finally come onto the market, to which more and more information and rumours can be found. The drone will be available in two versions: Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.

What’s new?

The first thing you notice is the appearance of the drone. Here the design was slightly changed, nevertheless the new drone is to be recognized immediately as Mavic on the photos so far emerged. As before, the arms can be folded in. The exact dimensions are not yet known, but the size should be about the same. After the smaller Spark, the minor upgrade Mavic Pro Platinum and the Mavic Air, this is definitely the direct successor of the Mavic Pro.

The gimbal could be removable this time (GoPro says hello), which is not sure yet. There will also be two different cameras with different lenses. A pre-release ad also reveals that this is a 1-inch Hasselblad camera in the Mavic 2 Pro and a double optical zoom lens in the Mavic 2 Zoom.

A screenshot of the DJI page also shows a model labeled Mavic 2 Enterprise. The picture was installed there by mistake and is no longer visible. What this third version is all about is not clear yet.

360° obstacle detection & more

A special feature will be the collision detection called “omnidirectional obstacle sensing”. This should enable the threat to detect obstacles in all directions and avoid collisions. With the automated systems APAS and Active Track 2.0 it will also be able to avoid these obstacles independently.

The maximum flight time is 31 minutes for both models (Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom). That would be another upgrade to the Mavic Pro and on a level with the Platinum version. The exact capacity of the battery is not known, but it will be replaceable. We also assume a Fly-More combo, in which there are three batteries directly added to the drone.

The maximum speed of the drone is 45 mph, the equivalent of 72 km/h.

So far hardly any information is known about the camera. Videos can be transmitted live in 1080p. The maximum resolution for pictures should be 4K, even if this is not confirmed.

When will the DJI Mavic 2 be released?

That hasn’t been determined yet. DJI had originally set 18 July as the date for a performance event, which was then postponed without giving any reasons. The prematurely published product information in the Argos catalogue could indicate an imminent start to sales, but that is not guaranteed either. So we will have to wait a little longer until there is new official information from DJI.

Also to the price so far official data are missing. One has to reckon with the fact that the price of the Mavic Pro is surpassed by currently $999. When the Chinese online shops will sell the Mavic 2 and by how much it will be cheaper there is pure speculation at this time.

What do you think of the details known so far? Is the Mavic 2 on your shopping list (or at least your wish list)?

    Yes of course. Follow mode, 360 degree obstacle avoidance, gps guidance… It’s a truly incredible machine. In my personal opinion, DJI has far exceeded it’s closest competition. I’ve been flying quadcopters since they were first invented. My first platform was the dragonfly pro from a Canadian company. The advances since then are just incredible. Lord only knows what’s next. Anti gravity drones? Lol If so, I’m betting DJI is there before all others yet again. Okay now give me my 25 bucks DJI lol Kidding, I’m not lucky/wealthy enough to own one of my own but if I were, I’d have a fleet of those suckers man! DJI fan, Danny Enlow

    Also, not only does it have follow me mode. It doesn’t need a transmitted device to follow. You can simply lock on any target on your screen to follow it. Just amazing. Seriously folks, I’m not sure that they left anything out. It has everything you could possibly want.

    purely for educational purposes

    so how can you hijack someones drone and override anticollision mechanisms and crash it into a building?
