Mavic 2 Pro Review from a Pro Drone Pilot
Now this review is not going to be a tech review on the specs. There’s a bajillion of those on youtube already. This review is going to be my personal opinion of the Mavic 2 Pro and what I use it for. So here is my list of 5 features that I like about the Mavic 2 Pro.
#1. Flight Times: Now, those of you who don’t know, here at VidMuze Aerial Cinema, LLC we’re a camera movement company and one of the main pieces of gear we use are heavy lifter drones. My main purpose for buying the Mavic 2 Pro was to have a scout drone. The Mavic’s flight times are great! We’re able to get a good 25 minutes of air time per battery depending on elevation, air temperature and wind. This thing is great for sending out ahead of time to scout for the best shot when the director or DP is unsure of camera placement or lens choice.
#2. Lens Options: The Mavic 2 Pro essentially has two focal lengths, the wide field of view is equivalent to a 28mm lens and then we can punch in to a 40mm. This is really helpful for the DP to see what type of lens he or she wants depending on the shot.
#3. Range: I was blown away with the signal and HD downlink ranges on this drone. According to DJI, the Mavic 2 Pro can get up to 5 miles range! This signal strength puts my heavy lifter to shame. To think I can be in the woods surround by tons of trees, and fly a mile away and not have LOS, line of sight, and still have plenty of signal strength. Crazy!
#4. Noise: The noise on the Mavic 2 Pro is really quiet. Mind you we’re used to flying 40 lbs drones, which sounds like an angry bee hive on crack, but the Mavic 2 Pro is super quiet. Great for buzzing around without harassing anyone. When this thing is 100 ft away, almost undetectable.
#5. Portability: We’re always on the road and have to take all of our gear with us. Our van is already busting at the seems with lots of gear. So knowing that everything for the Mavic 2 Pro fits in one small case, makes me a very happy camper.
