I do not understand why DJI announces new product when it will not be available for purchase for months. Why not release when stock is made available

The Mavic Pro Platinum should be availabe mid - late September for order.  The batteries are the same and interchangeable with the MP.  You may use the MPP props on the MP.  As far as differences, the props, the escs, the hardware for the camera allowing usable 1080P 60FP and of cource the color.  I hope this clears up the questions for everyone that doesn't read the thread.

Hang on a second! I spoke with a DJI rep on Chat on Saturday as I had recently purchased a Mavic Pro concerning the camera (Jeffrey his name was, I have a screen shot for my records) and asked about the camera as I wanted to know what the issue was with my new MP and at no point did he mention that this was a known issue that wasn't going to be fixed and just went through the settings etc (I thought it was me)!!

I also asked about the Platinum Feature set and what was upgraded etc as I was within my 14 days return policy, the camera was not mentioned (ability to use props and ESC was)!

What the hell type of mixed messaging is going on?

Is the blurry right corner issue fixed with this version of the Mavic? I am asking that because the camera have exactly te same specs... has Dji revised this issue on the Platinum or we will have to send back AGAIN a new drone back for repairing?

With all respect,....this update can hardly be called an upgrade and to launche it on a "new" product?

I'll  buy the new blades,...and they can keep the extra flight minutes.

My thoughts exactly.

My MP is less than a month old. The MP Platinum version seems to be a host of hardware updates some of which seem good (new blades/Props) otherwise any other updates to flight performance and camera updates are handled by the software updates that we all get anyway!

I don't think the MP is overly noisy as it is. I think the best thing is a slight increase in flight time.

You are all get it wrong. The new Platinum is not for you all who currently own a Mavic. The current Mavic is discontinued and will last with current stock. Similar to Phantom 4 that you can hardly get one. So if you damage out of warranty Mavic and still love it you can get the new Paltinum and use all previous Mavic accessories.

I think you are right however, where does it state the MP is discontinued?

Whatch the difference between Mavic Pro & Mavic Pro Platium in this video. The both aircrafts face to face!  Noise reduction is amazing.

DJI MP VS MPP

Well I have watched this twice with the volume turned up to the max on headphones and find it difficult to hear a huge difference.

I think the slight increase in flight time is far more important than the noise level. It's not the most noisy drone I have heard.

It is galling to think I paid out for the fly more combo MP just a few weeks ago and I asked the well known, large RC retailer if any upgrades are due. I know the guy who works at the retailer and was stood with him before laying out over a grand.

He told me the MP would not be upgraded and no news was fourth coming from DJI. Now I know many of you will say the retailer needs to sell off his stock and I asked for a discount to which his reply was that DJI set the price and the retailers are not allowed to discount.!! I don't really believe this.

While I am happy with the MP it would have been nice to know the MPP was coming out ... if the waiting list was 3 to 4 months then I don't mind paying out on the MP.

Begs the question as to whether DJI actually inform the dealers when new models are coming out.

There's a lot of commentary here about spending an additional $100 for the Platinum Mavic.  I just got mine on order this morning after giving a bit of thought to which version would be best. Consider this - If the original Mavic Pro provided 27 Minutes of flight for $1,000 and the Platinum version provides 30 minutes of flight for $1,100 then the cost per minutes breaks down as follows - $1,000 / 27 = ($37.04) / minute while the Platinum version is $1,100 / 30 = $36.67 - The Platinum is actually a bit cheaper to fly than the original.  And DJI throws in the quieter flight for free.  That is a good justification of $100 for me - Happy flying Drone Heads

I have mixed feelings about this announcement, having bought my Pro only a couple of months ago. However, that's the name of the game - new models will  and should be coming out, and you cannot alway time your purchase to the upcoming releases.

It's great that the new blades are compatible with Mavic Pro - by the look of it, they should have less turbulence at the wing tips, which not only reduces the noise but also (as noise is a function of spent energy) should also increase flight time for the Pro version. Definitely on my to-buy list.

I hope that DJI would continue working on the Pro updates - especially in the camera software area.

I asked my son (does not speak English) to watch the video and see if there is difference between them rather than the color. He said the dark one has much noise!

For me low noise is a great thing due to my country issues (Kuwait). I was just about to buy spark for it's lower noise than mavic despite the mavic is much better. The DJI announcement made my dream comes true (best drone without noise yet platinm color)!

As soon as the stock is ready I'll get mine, just waiting for GJI delear in Kuwait.

regarding (old) mavic I don't think Those whom bought it recently commited a mistake. 3 minutes or more noise is not a big deal since you are not in Kuwait! Lol

Maybe a good idea would be to compare the noise without the propellers, to ear the difference of noise coming from the motor drivers only ...

Are you able to use the new Props on a standard Mavic Pro? Will this increase flight time and provide quieter flight for the standard Pro?

I'll probably wait for some reviews from actual users first.

In my opinion DJI isn't making much noise about the camera hardware fix in the Platinum that allows it to record video in usable 1080/60fps because they do not intend to fix it on the Pro. So they don't want to make it well known that they're leaving Pro owners in the dust without a care about it. Basically, their resolution is for us to give them more money for the Platinum where they have addressed the issue there rather than on our Pro.

If I write "DJI" on their sides can I use 6 x AAA batteries and a small solar panel to power the MPP?
Also, a  friend has given me some wooden tongue depressors. If I use them as props will I get the same level of noise reduction? (I am prepared to do a fair amount of whittling.)

HELP FROM DJI MAVIC REPAIR/SUPPORT TEAM


I bought my drone in the US in march, but Im from brazil.
DJI still doesnt have drone support in brazil and that is a big issue from brazilians to repair their drones. I crashed my drone once and had to arrange with friends going over the US to get it fixed to bring it back to me. Now I broke my drone again I had to send to US again by one of my friends flying to US, because i dont trust and use mail carriers because there is a huge amount of taxes and borders burocracy to do, I would rather wait for a friend to go to US and bring back to me in brazil. Thats my process to fix my mavic.
For that reason I kindly ask for a little help from DJI team.

My friend from brazil is going to Miami on september and he would be able to bring the drone back to me in brazil, but he is going to stay in Orlando - Florida only until september 24.
I wish my drone would be fixed and delivered until september 24 ( less than 15 business day from the day the mavic was received).
Its possible? Can you guys send the drone on express one day delivery?
My drone was received on Sep/01/2017 at DJI facility and now is in payment process to be accepted (i've already pay the amount on Sep/01/2017)

I would be really happy about it. Its really complicated to send the drone to US and receive from US.

If DJI repair team can accelerate the process, I ask you guys to change the address for my friend to receive the mavic pro.


My friends hotel address to be deliver the drone before september 24

I think the slight increase in flight time is far more important than the noise level. It's not the most noisy drone I have heard.

.. also a video shot in a trade show is not a scientific comparison as the distance to recording camera & mics was variable, plus the sound recording probably had auto modulation which affected the gain - notice the slight but significant difference in the perceived volume of the background chatter from the show floor. Still 4db is an average over the frequency spectrum - notice that there is actually a peak above the MP at one point in the DJI graph. What is preferable on the new MPP is the cadence changes in the motor sound - much smoother than the MP.

Oh I totally agree. I just wish my brother would have waited so I could test out the new one. I get the same question. People are usually surprised that it costs what it does. I think most are expecting the $2000-3000 range. I'm always amazed that such amazing technology exists in my lifetime.

Don’t you worry about waiting list.  Not going to happen with Platinum this time.  No one really interest to pay $100 more for new colour and 3mins flights time which you can get similar from $20 props replacement.

If you're in the market for Mavic definitely get the Platinum, $100 price difference is not much IMO. I know existing Mavic owners are chiming in it's not worth it but you guys are just jealous.
