Good Morning !
I was very surprised yesterday, when I read a resume and test of a new amazing drone
on Swedish MSN.

It is in many details a copy of a Mavic Pro, what I can see.
Including colouring.
I can see a difference in the joints between the propeller booms and the body.
Thats all.

This is the home page of the product  Drone X Pro :
https://hyperstech.com/intl/order3.php?prod=dronexpro&net=1673&aff={AFFID}&sid={SUBID}&cid={CLICKID}

The resume says that it is an amazing drone for the price at roughly 100 USD.
Literally flies itself (just like the Mavics).

The writeup says it was designed by 2 engineers,
they meant that the price of drones was not according to their manufacturing costs,
but rather to the brand.
Thais s however normal for many products, the Brand has its price, for reasons !

They have an intensive marketing :  Buy 2 and get one free.   Etc.
They are also sold on Lazada, one of Asias biggest Internet shops.

As a Mavic Pro owner, I would like to get an official comment from JVI about this.
—————————————————————————————————

Are they selling rejected JVI drones ?
Is the design and manufacturing data stolen by previous JVI employed engineers ?
Or simply the JVI design site has been hacked ?

I think buyers should be warned and informed, they think they buy something like a Mavis Pro
for 199 USD, when the original price is 1000 USD !
And buying an inferior product !

I am supporting JVI, and I want my brand new Mavic Pro to retain its value !

A more careful look reveals that the camera is mounted at the bottom of the drone.Also, the symbols on the controller buttons are different, otherwise the controller looks identical.

This drone is the size of your smart phone.

Yup its a model of the Mavic (1) Pro - basically a toy replica of the real thing. Not sure if the company that produces these does so under licence from DJI - but I would have thought not, as it diminishes the brand being an inferior 'copy' of the real thing.

I saw it first a couple of months ago, and it looked wrong, though the first impression was that I was looking at a Mavic. They went for a plagiarist shape because Mavic Pro has turned into an easily-recognisable iconic image in the quad world.
But that's where the similarities end. Mavic is a solid, sturdy, reliable construction, with a lion's share of its cost being in the gimbal/camera assembly. That... thing, on the other hand, looks like it will fall apart from a moderate wind gust.

It is rather Ironic that some one is doing a cheap knock off copy of a Chinese product. :-)

So it is a Chinese company ripping off a Chinese company    :-)
AFAIK nothing unusual there.

hese cheap drones can usually crash once or twice then are broken with no replacement parts. There goes your $100, or $200 for 2.

If you fly your Mavic, and have bought the Refresh or have State Farm, it will cost you less then $200 and you get to practice on the actual Mavic, with no fear of loss.

Toy drones are just that, toys. The Mavic is a high resolution camera platform with built-in systems to help you avoid crashing.
