Inside the Mavic’s pocket-sized remote controller is DJI’s brand new OcuSync transmission technology, with a range of 4.3mi (7km) and Full HD 1080p video streaming.
The Mavic is only 1/6th the size of the Phantom 4 but this reduction in size doesn't mean a reduction in flight time. The Mavic actually flies much longer than you would expect from its compact size. It is capable of reaching an absolute max flight time of 27 minutes and a maximum distance of 8mi (13km) due to its powerful, high efficiency motors.
Mavic supports 4K video at 30fps. No Electronic Image Stabilization is used, ensuring all footage is 4K. We have created a miniaturized, ultra-precise 3-axis gimbal for the Mavic, capable of stabilizing the camera even during high speed motion for smooth video and sharp photos.
You will not need a film crew when you fly the Mavic because all you need is ActiveTrack. Just tell it who to track and it handles the rest, making you shoot like a pro.
With the Mavic in the air pointing at you, a gesture is all it takes to snap a photo. Get selfies like you’ve never seen before with Mavic’s Gesture Mode.
Maybe all you want to do is grab a quick dronie, set up tracking to shoot a friend, or even just head skywards for a quick flight. All you need is your phone.

The Mavic is smaller, lighter, and easier to carry with you thanks to its foldable design. Its new OcuSync transmission system has a longer transmission range and 1080p resolution. Due to its larger size, the Phantom 4 has a higher maximum speed and can withstand stronger winds.
The folding mechanism has been tested to last at least 5000 folds. It is unlikely that it will wear out during the Mavic’s lifetime.
The two cameras have the same features, but the Mavic’s camera has a smaller FOV, is able to focus as closely as 0.5m and can be rotated 90° for portrait shots and selfies. The Phantom 4’s larger FOV makes it better suited for landscape imaging.
The Mavic remote controller uses DJI’s OcuSync transmission technology, giving it an increased range of up to 4.3mi (7km) in open areas without interference, FCC compliant. When using a smartphone connected via Wi-Fi, the controllable range is 80m, and maximum altitude is 50m, making it suitable for short-range shots like selfies and for setting up ActiveTrack. You can also download photos and videos directly from the Mavic to your mobile device via Wi-Fi. By sliding the Control Mode switch on the right hand side of the aircraft, you can choose easily between Wi-FI and RC mode depending on which transmission type you need.
First, make sure that your aircraft is powered off. Then, open the small cover on the right hand side of the aircraft body. Slide the switch to the left to enable Wi-Fi control, or to the right to use the remote controller.
The Mavic remote controller can fit smartphones between 6.5-8.5mm thick and up to 160mm long, without a phone case. Phones and tablets larger than this do not fit the remote controller’s device holder.
Yes, you can. However, for the best user experience, we recommend that you use a dedicated Mavic RC (Remote Controller) Cable to connect your phone.
Phone with display facing up:
The phone on the left has a standard Micro USB Connector; the phone on the right has a Reverse Micro USB Connector.
The Remote Controller Cable (Standard Micro USB Connector) is compatible with: Samsung, Huawei, Motorola and more. The Remote Controller Cable (Reverse Micro USB Connector) is compatible with: HTC, Mi, OPPO and more. For Sony, VIVO, and other brands, phone compatibility differs by model. Please take care to choose the correct type for your phone.
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.
For security purposes, each Mavic has its own SSID and password that can be found on a sticker on one of the forearms of the aircraft and inside the battery compartment. For your first use, you can scan the QR code with the DJI GO app to connect to the aircraft*, or enter the password manually under your phone’s Wi-Fi settings.
(*Only available for Android devices).
No. You must use the DJI GO app to connect to your aircraft.
Connect to your Mavic via Wi-Fi and then enter Camera View. Now enter Wi-Fi settings to manually set the SSID and password.
Turn on the Mavic in Wi-Fi mode, press the linking button and hold for 5s.
The 2.4G Wi-Fi frequency was developed a long time ago, 5G Wi-Fi is newer. As 2.4G is older, more devices use this frequency, making it more likely to suffer from interference. 5G is less prone to interference as there are less 5G devices, but not all phones support the 5G frequency. You can switch between these two frequency bands in the Wi-Fi Settings menu in the DJI GO app.
No. Just fold the propellers and you are good to go.
Once the rotors start spinning, the centrifugal force will automatically push the propellers into the correct position, so you don’t need to worry about not having unfolded them perfectly.
The Mavic can withstand a level 5 wind, also called a fresh breeze. This is defined as wind speeds of 19–24mph (29–38kph).
In calm weather and under ideal conditions, the Mavic can fly up to 8 miles (13km) at 31 mph (50 kph). Real-world performance will vary though, so we urge you to monitor your battery level at all times.
Thanks to its rotor system optimized for forward flight and its aerodynamic design, when flying at the optimum speed for energy consumption, the Mavic consumes less energy then it does hovering. This is why it is able to give you a 27 minute flight time, while its hover time is 24 minutes.
OcuSync has a range of up to 4.3 miles (7 km) with improved resistance to interference and a higher transmission throughput. At shorter ranges it can stream footage to you at 1080p resolution and also allows photo and video downloads at 40Mb/s.
1080p/30fps for near-field transmission; 720p/60fps for far-field transmission.
160ms from the Mavic’s camera to your device screen under ideal conditions.
When the Vision System fails to function normally, you can do a quick calibration in the DJI GO app, or connect the aircraft to a computer to perform advanced calibration for higher precision.
The Mavic combines dual forward and downward vision sensors to realize precision hovering. Therefore, it requires no more than a patterned surface and enough available light to be able to hover stably up to 13m above the ground. Even if the Mavic is unable to identify reference points on the ground, it can still rely on its forward vision sensors to hover. In contrast, an Optical Flow system, requires information from ultrasonic sensors to supplement its view of patterned surfaces.
An example to show the difference between the two systems is when the aircraft is returning to you where you are standing on a balcony. When flying in over the balcony, drones using Optical Flow will receive data from two data sources that measure its height above the below surface differently – one being its height above the ground, and another the height above the balcony. As the data is not compatible, an Optical Flow system may become confused.
Another example is when the ground below the drone is covered by vegetation. Plants and trees do not reflect sound as well as other surfaces, causing the Optical Flow system’s ultrasonic sensors to be unable to gather altitude data.
In conclusion, the Mavic's Intelligent Vision Positioning System requires fewer inputs and is therefore more robust in its functionality.
The Mavic will automatically avoid obstacles 50ft (15m) in front of it. The maximum speed at which the Mavic is able to avoid obstacles is 22mph (30kph).
Precision Landing is an upgraded version of GPS RTH. It needs a GPS signal strong enough to initiate Precision Landing, so that the Mavic can be navigated back to the vicinity of the take-off point.
Then, the aircraft needs to be able to visually recognize the pattern of the ground it took off from, for example cracks or other identifiable patterns. A uniform patch of sand, however, is not suitable for Precision Landing. Finally, the Mavic needs to capture footage of the ground during take-off to record its appearance. This means that you should give the Mavic sufficient time during its ascent, instead of flying away immediately after take-off.
Yes, it can charge a battery and two other devices simultaneously via USB. However, it will take longer to fully charge the devices.
Yes. The Mavic’s Intelligent Flight Battery supports quick charging at nearly 2C, with a maximum charging power of 100W. The rated power of Mavic Battery Charger is 50W, and the rated power of the Mavic Car Charger is 78W. When using the Mavic Advanced Charging Hub with a 100W adapter, the battery can be charged at 100W.
The two Charging Hubs can both charge up to 4 batteries at one time. In order to fully charge the first battery as quickly as possible, the Intelligent Flight Batteries are charged in sequence according to their power levels, from high to low. This gives you the fastest way of getting all your batteries fully charged.
There are two main differences between the two Charging Hubs. First, the standard Charging Hub only supports the Mavic’s 50W Battery Charger and Mavic Car Charger, while the advanced version also supports the 100W Battery Charger and Car Charger from the Phantom 4. Second, the advanced version will balance the voltage of each battery cell to improve charging efficiency. When one battery’s charging enters the second-half of its charging phase, the next battery will enter the first-half of its charging phase. With 4 batteries all at 15%, the advanced charger can get 4 batteries fully charged in 140 minutes using the Phantom 4’s 100W charger, while the standard version will need 270 minutes with the Mavic’s 50W charger.
This adapter can be connected to the Mavic’s Intelligent Flight Battery, turning it into a power bank. Thanks to its high capacity, an Intelligent Flight Battery at 25% charge can fully charge the Mavic’s controller, or an iPhone 6.
The adapter has two USB ports which can be used simultaneously. The output voltage is 5V, and the max current is 2A + 2A.
