DJI Care Refresh offers new drone protection plan

But, once you pay the $99 fee, you’ll still have to pay an additional fee to get a new drone (which is new or equivalent to new). The first replacement will cost $79 and the second will cost $129. Continue reading DJI Care Refresh offers new drone protection plan

Mavic Pro is DJI’s first tiny, portable drone (and a whole lot more)

DJI’s new Mavic Pro solves one of the biggest challenges holding the popular Phantom from going truly mainstream: size and portability.

The $999 DJI Mavic Pro was announced Tuesday and puts DJI’s Phantom technology into a compact, foldable package about the size of a water bottle. It addresses a key drawback of the Phantom; it’s quite simply too large to toss in a backpack and bring on a hike or vacation.

The drone can be controlled either by a small RC transmitter with the sticks Phantom operators are familiar with, or with a smartphone app.

While its selling point for many will likely be the size, it has a number of new standout features that aren’t available in DJI’s other drones. Continue reading Mavic Pro is DJI’s first tiny, portable drone (and a whole lot more)
