    While I am waiting for my new Mavic Pro I detected an exciting post of a german blogger

    DJI Go Software for Mavic and Mavic Pro

    He discovered that the DJI GO App already includes support for two Mavic copters - Mavic and Mavic Pro.

    And it seems the channel hack is still possible ;). Now I want my Mavic more than ever before :D

    Support for the Mavic has been in IOS for awhile and just included in the latest release for Android. What we (at least I) didn't know was the availability of the 32 Channel hack, which would be awesome news if true.

    More than likely a scaled down version of the Pro, like the P3A was for the P3P for those who don't need 4K and want to save money.

    It's likely the "hexacopter" that was posted by Best Buy having 1080p:

    Best Buy can't pull there head out of there a$$ -- the "hexacopter" they show has four props.

    If there is a Mavic as differentiated from the Mavic Pro then logic would argue it to have something less than the Pro. I doubt the platform will be any different so that would suggest a different camera. But, it is possible they may offer it without some of the sensors the Pro has.

    Perhaps a 1080P camera and elimination of some of the sensors.

    The Mavic Pro is what's currently available. The Mavic is the one that doesn't come with a controller instead uses wifi with your device to control. Will be slightly cheaper as well.

    Are you speculating or is this information from a reliable source? I'm just curious.

    Here are the Mavic labels from DJI's FCC listings:

    Labels.png

    The FCC filings show the operating range is as follows for both the M1P and M1S:

    2.412 GHz to 2.462 GHz
    2.4035 GHz to 2.4775 GHz
    2.4055 GHz to 2.4775 GHz
    2.4105 GHz to 2.4725 GHz
    5.18 GHz to 5.24 GHz
    5.745 GHz to 5.825 GHz

    It was mentioned at the release event that there would be a wifi only version that retails for 699 I believe. Don't quote me on that. But for sure a wifi only version that doesn't come with the controller. This will directly compete with the $899 karma version with no camera.

    I'm speculating that they will call the wifi only version the Mavic. The Pro version will likely include the controller. Personally I don't see a future for the Phantom. Their work will go into the Mavic 2 and next models of the Inspire line.

    At the release, DJI mentioned the Mavic Pro can be purchased for $749 without an RC or $999 with the RC.

    I'm sorry $749 is correct. But I would not be surprised to see the version changed to Mavic. Time will tell....

    The version without the RC? That would be super odd. It's still a Mavic Pro -- just being sold without an RC.

    Check out the article above. The author decompiled the DJI GO app and found there at least seems to be a difference in the camera. DJI has created P3 models with different cameras, so it would be more likely than simply removing the remote controller from the box and changing the label.

    Yes total speculation but the version without RC. They very well could change camera and even other things.

    I think DJI will absolutely release a cut-down version without 4k capability much like the P4 Advanced. It makes sense for them to do it.

    Totally agree. If they can dull the Mavic Pro down and hit a $499 target this thing will blow up HUGE for DJI!
