DJI has recently launched its latest and ultra-portable drone called DJI Mavic Pro which is equal to the size of a water bottle and it might fit in your pockets as well.
DJI Mavic Pro is a more manageable and easy to carry drone. It is also capable on recording 4K videos at 30fps (frames per second) and it provides stabilised videos, thanks to its 3-axis stabiliser. This drone can catch speeds up-to 60 kph (40 mph) and provide 27 minutes of (max) flight time with a max range of 7 km (4.3 miles).
This is not only a light weight and portable drone, but hats off to the design team of Mavic Pro for creating such a wonderful piece of tech. In actual terms it is a quad-copter with four arms that can be folded in such a way, that makes it compact and even you don’t have to take off its propellers.

With this new quad-copter you get an all new controller, which is again really compact and easy to carry.
Previously, GoPro has also revealed its GoPro Karma drone which falls in the same category as Mavic Pro and rather it seems to be like an ecosystem for GoPro users, as it lets you attach or detach camera module, plus you also add or remove the Karma grip. GoPro Karma is compatible with GoPro Hero 4, Hero 5 and Hero Session 5.
The pricing of DJI Mavic Pro starts at $999 in U.S. which translate to Rs. 66,490/- in India. Whereas, as the GoPro Karma comes at $799 which is approximately Rs. 53,200/-.
So, at the first impressions, the DJI Mavic Pro looks more like a better drone with more features and definitely it’s more compact. But looking at GoPro Karma clearly tells that, what GoPro is trying to sell is an Ecosystem with more customizable experience and defiantly image quality of GoPro cameras is better than what you get on stock Mavic Pro.
