Love this drone! The dynamic rage and bit color of the images are amazing. I bought the Dji Mini 2 in December and upgraded to this within 3 months. I wish I would’ve bought this as my first. If you’ve never owned a drone before, this should be it!

Known nothing about aerial photographic / video and was deciding between mavic air 2, mini 2 or mavic 2 pro. Watched a lot of videos on YouTube, have to admit I like the color of mavic 2 pro a lot. Although it is the oldest in the lineup, it is rather mature product with many firmware updates. Dji’s attention to details and quality is shown. the gimbal cover now has thin layer of silicone to prevent scratching on the camera enclosure, an issue that was reported before. I also like the fact it has redundant IMUs, give additional assurance of reliability. aircraft is very stable in the air and not too hard to learn how to fly. It has rather intuitive controls. I like the Dji Go 4 that offers many options to tweak the gimbal, flight, camera and video controls. the 1-inch sensor produces beautiful details and quality. Photos and videos feel like coming out of DSLR. I can push low light to 1600, reminds me of Nikon D700’s performance and quality. The camera and algorithm produce really natural and pleasing colors. Not yet mess with D-log but it has potential to get even more dynamic range and effect on video. The whole aircraft feels sturdy and high quality. Gimbal arms and camera enclosure are made of metal I think. The aircraft makes rather pleasing propeller sound, and I can barely hear it once in the air. The collision avoidance works, actually it is perhaps a better choice for new pilot like me just learning how to fly. There are also lots of pre-set fly modes and I am very excited to learn with kids together. Although the design is almost 3 years old since release, its built quality, proven reliability, excellent fly characteristics, toughness, picture / video results make this aircraft a worthy choice for long term use.

This drone is absolutely stunning and the fly more kit and smart controller are beyond worth the price, the possibilities are endless. This set up makes a huge difference when shooting.
