The Chinese manufacturer unveiled on Tuesday the Mavic Pro, which is nearly half the price and size of its flagship Phantom drone.
The device is slimmer and it weighs 1.65 pounds and yet doesn’t compromise on features. The Mavic Pro comes with a 4K 12 megapixel camera, live streaming support, a three-axis gimbal and gesture control.
The drone will be out in the market on 15th October. It will be available in two types. One priced at $749 and other at $999. This is an attractive option for amateur drone enthusiasts.
The news comes just one week after GoPro announced its own lightweight, foldable drone named GoPro’s Karma with propellers that fold inward, so it can fit in a bag. However, GoPro’s drone doesn’t come with a camera you’ll need to buy one separately.
This isn’t the first time the two companies have flown into each other’s territory. DJI recently launched a self-stabilizing handheld camera called “Osmo.” Meanwhile, GoPro launched a similar selfie stick product just last week.
