Questions and Answers
Will the folding mechanism wear out and will I need to replace it?
The folding mechanism has been tested for a least 5000 folds and is unlikely to wear out in the life time of the Mavic Pro.
Is the Mavic Pro Waterproof?
No. As the Mavic Pro chassis is low to the ground, only take off and land in suitable areas that are flat and free from puddles.
Can I zoom during shooting?
The Mavic Pro supports a 2x digital zoom, but does not support optical zoom. You can zoom in or out by dragging on the screen or by pressing the customisable buttons.
What sizes of smartphone can fit inside the Mavic Pro remote controller?
The sizes of smartphones are between 6.5 -8.5 thick and up to 160mm long, without the phone case. Phones and tablets larger that this will not fit the remote controller device holder.
Can I use a regular USB cable to connect my phone and remote controller?
Yes, however for the best user experience it is recommended that you use the dedicated Mavic Pro RC (Remote Controller) cable to connect your phone.
What remote controller are include with the Mavic Pro upon purchase?
There are three cables are included in the box: one with lightning connector, one with a standard Micro USB connector and the third one is the USB Type-C connector.
How many batteries can I carry in the Mavic Pro’s Shoulder Bag?
Four. One mounted on the Mavic Pro, one at the bottom of the bag, and one in each of the two side pockets.
How far can the Mavic Pro fly on a single charge?
In calm weather and under ideal conditions, the Mavic Pro can fly up to 8 miles (13km) at 31 mph (50kph). Real world performance will differ though, so we urge you to monitor your battery levels at all times.
Why does the Mavic Pro have a longer flight time than hover time?
Thanks to its rotor system optimised for forward flight and its aerodynamic design, when flying at the optimum speed for energy consumption, the Mavic Pro consumes less energy when it is hovering. This is why it is able to give you 27 minutes flight time, and 24 minutes hover time.
