DJI has upgraded its Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro drone hardware, and added new computer software attributes to the tiny DJI Spark, its smallest purchaser drone. At IFA 2017, DJI disclosed the new Mavic Pro Platinum, which provides all-around 11 p.c far more flight time for each charge, and 60 p.c sound reduction. It also gets a platinum paint work. The Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian has a matte-gray end (which is not what I’d assume for one thing termed ‘Obsidian’).
The way DJI has been able to obtain the updates with the Mavic Pro Platinum is by way of new digital velocity controllers and brand new propellers. Existing Mavic Pro house owners can get some of the added benefits with the new propellers by itself, which are backwards suitable. That can make me really feel relatively considerably less envious, since I by now own a Mavic Pro.
The Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian is generally completely a color adjust, while it does have a new magnesium, electroplated gimbal that is supposed to prevent fingerprints.
Ultimately, the DJI Spark gets Sphere manner, which will allow Spark people to develop Panorama illustrations or photos with a fisheye influence they can share right out to social media internet sites immediately. Which is heading to occur to the drones by way of a firmware update, pushed by way of the DJI GO 4 mobile smartphone application.
The new Mavic Pro Platinum will retail for $1,099, and the Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian will provide for $1,499, with both of those delivery in September.
