Sport Mode

Yesterday I drove 2 hours over to my favourite exterior recording location – low tide & no wind meant the conditions were perfect for recording my DJI Mavic Pro. The Mavic is a drone physically much smaller than my DJI Phantom 3 Pro, but being a newer generation has longer battery life (27min), better range (7km) and… sport mode!

In normal use the Mavic feels a little bit sluggish, but I recorded 3 batteries worth of moves, passbys, hover etc in normal mode…

And then for the first time I switched to sport mode and holy sh+t! The Mavic suddenly became a LOT more animated.
Sport Mode allows the Mavic to fly a lot faster and also makes the controls far more responsive… While it is designed for racing, it is also perfect for performing (& recording) more aggressive moves!

These new recordings will be a free update to our SD024 DRONE UAV QUADCOPTER Library – release next week
