Not everyone needs a pocket drone...

I certainly have no desire to carry a drone on my belt. ;-)

The Mavic 2 pictures and Enterprise pictures clearly do not show anything close to a "pocket drone". The airframe is significantly larger than the original Mavic. Also, note the larger frame and motors in the Mavic 2 pic.

Folders have no place in my present Hangar, is all I’m saying...

Perfectly good, for lots of other people, for sure.

With you. I’ve got both. They both have roles. If they discontinue the Phantom design, they’re selling themselves short.

It must have been their very best seller in design and performance for a mid priced hobby grade drone.

The ever growing innovations DJI conceive of, continue to be revealed.

You have to wonder what more can actually be dreamt up?

Of course with firmware written, and eventually offered in a tidy package.

IMHO Phantoms are better at handling wind than Mavics. Mavics are much easier to carry than Phantoms.

I agree with you Jeff, each has their place. Maybe in a year or two I will buy a Mavic to compliment my Phantom.

LOL - Hopefully someone is having a big laugh out there.

Buy a foldable enterprise drone and remember to add accessories taking up more space than the foldable design saves, add to this that the add-ons really don't fit the drone.
No way was i going to spend a minor fortune for equipment, with a design that look so far from streamlined that i would fear it would turn upside down before it even got off ground and then i would have to spend hours cleaning out the thousands of bugs that would sit squashed between the drone and the addon's after flight.

If anyhow something real, then hopefully this is some PoC for drone use, more than a new product to be released in a few days.

Yes, I agree about the wind. The Mavic is a compact little package. It’s delicate too. It gets blown around like a leaf. I’m glad I bought it, but I doubt I would’ve been happy if it was my only drone.

They will just introduce 4 more variants and confuse the consumer. Nothing new here.

I really hope they don’t. This is a classic and practical design we have now in our Phantoms. DJI has only improved on the design over the years. I think if they do phase the Phantoms out, it would be a mistake.

I’m in the camp right now too that doesn’t foresee a foldable drone in my future.

I dont know what gives the impression that this new Mavic (if rumors are true) is larger, looks the same to me, am i missing something?
