Chinese drone manufacturer DJI has participated in this year’s IFA in Berlin with some upgrades to its DJI Mavic Pro. Named as DJI Mavic Pro Platinum, the drone is claimed to make 60 percent less noise than before, and increased flight time from 27 minutes to 30.
DJI’s Mavic Pro was released last year to plug what the company saw as a bit of hole in the marketplace, a compact-yet-capable camera drone that could be folded up for easy transport. The updated Mavic Pro Platinum has been fitted out with new propellors and electronic speed controllers, which are claimed to make it 60 percent quieter and also boost flight time from 27 to 30 minutes. Those new props will also work with the original Mavic Pro.
The popular Phantom 4 has also received something of an update, though this is more or less a new coat of paint. Dubbed the Phantom 4 Obsidian, this sees the drone finished in a matte-gray color, while DJI says it has also upped the quality of the gimbal with a magnesium, anti-fingerprint coating.
