It appears that DJI are planning to launch a brand-new ‘mini drone’ called the Mavic. A foldable machine that’s expected to be more portable, smaller and lighter than DJI’s Phantom drone
The “Mavic” seems to have been given its name by Heliguy, who was also responsible for sharing some pictures and a few specs online recently. From what he says, the drone will come equipped with a 4K camera with 2-axis gimbal, 300m WiFi link and a remote with an integrated LCD display that runs Android OS.
If this is for real, it seems like this may be a great model for those who want an ‘out of the box’ solution as this machine comes ready to fly – just unfold the components and off you go!
