Hi all,
I just wanted to share an opinion and video I created using the Mavic Pro 1.
I've recently purchased the Air 2s this year, however, when I look at the video from Mavic Pro 1, the footage quality seems to hold up.

I'm sure there are finer points comparing the two but sometimes creating good content should take priority over gear.
Also, I'm no pro or saying my content is any good but hope you enjoy.

Thank you,

Very nice. I pre-ordered my Mavic Pro on day one of the announcement and it's still flying great and providing awesome video.

Hi, yes I think I put in it two places accidentally.
I posted the first one late one night then there was some odd error so I posted it again but didn’t realise it was on a different page. Never post anything late at night…

Yeah, probably great advice.

Yeah, the only reason I sold mine was because of the new regulations.
Other than that I would love to be flying with that bird!

What did you get as your replacement drone?

Nice one!
That’s my go to recommendation to friends interested in getting into drones.
I’m interested in getting a Mini 2 just to fly around the house. Still in lockdown where I am and I can’t fly anywhere near here.

Yeah, I wish the rules were not that strict for >250g drones around here.
But the M2 is quite good actually, just not as powerful as the MP I used to have.
Plus I miss the color profiles.

Hi mini-G, bought my original Mavic Pro two an half years ago from a mates son_in_law  it was the fly more combo with 2 goosed batteries, (I knew before purchase) for £250, a steal, never been a problem in any way, love it. It does all I need and more. I wouldn't swop it for a stuffed pig.

It’s still got some chops the old girl
I’m also missing the menu system from the Mavic Pro. In particular the camera controls.
Have fun!

Don't fly mine as often as I used to, but I love it, its never failed me, and takes good pictures and video. Does everything I want it to, and see no need to upgrade.

Yes, I agree!!
Although the Air 2s has definite pros, the MP1 is my “new first drone” recommendation - at a good price.
Thanks for you sharing your opinion!

This just proves you don't always have to be flying the latest and greatest. The older drones as long as they still work are perfectly serviceable!

Great work. The Mavic Pro (Platinum, in my case) was always a great drone. Only the M2Zoom persuaded me to upgrade

Hi,

The M2 Zoom surely is now a classic! I thought the Mavic 3 had a mechanical zoom but it’s all digital…

The Mavic Pro1 has one capability shared by NO other model among DJI's entire newer drone product line.  When out flying an autonomous Litchi waypoint mission, the Mavic Pro1, as well as the entire Phantom series drones, will respond to the loss of RC signal by optionally completing the entire mission without missing a beat.   This ability to faithfully overfly all Litchi flight plan waypoints AFTER the loss of RC signal to the pilot's controller is most regrettably and sadly no longer within the performance envelope of any model among DJI's more recently released hobby-grade drone variants.

"Virtual Sticks" is the name coined for the autonomous flight capabilities of DJI's latest drone models.  Unlike the earlier "on-board" storage of GPS coordinate data during autonomous waypoint missions that enabled the likes of the Mavic Pro1 and Phantom series to range well beyond RC signal reach during Litchi missions, "Virtual Sticks" telemetry protocol entails that vital GPS data being removed from storage in the onboard memory of DJI's newer drones, whereby GPS waypoint data must be transmitted continuously in real-time from the RC controller to the drone.

This means that the instant a break in RC signal is detected, all DJI's newer drones will instantly terminate any waypoint missions being flown, and execute a forced return to home whether the pilot approves or not.  Sure, the latest drones released by DJI represent great advances in camera technology, flight battery duration, and RC signal reach, yet, for those lucky few drone pilots who like me happen to reside in areas where fully autonomous drone flying is permitted well beyond signal range, the primary criterium by which I evaluate ANY Drone, pertains to what that drone will do in the event of a signal loss between the drone and the controller.  

Until such time as DJI or any other drone manufacturer releases a new model that stores all its GPS data on board so as to permit the completion of autonomous flight plan missions despite RC signal loss, I'll stick with my Mavic Pro1, Mavic Pro Platinum, Phantom 3 Standard, and Phantom 3 Pro.  That said, any new drone that is released going forward, with enhanced camera capabilities, crosswind tolerance, and battery life, while ALSO offering that all-important fully autonomous flight-plan completion ability after RC signal loss, will likely be added to my fleet the instant I can afford such a purchase.
