    I'm seeing lots of RANGE test videos and ALTITUDE records for Phantom and Mavic . . what I want to know is how . . . cause I don't actually have mine yet . . .(yea I'm jealous) . . How far can you see a Mavic Pro under optimal conditions.? I loose sight of my Phantom 4 at about 1300ft if I take my eyes off it . . . If I keep focused on it then maybe between 1600 and 1800ft if the lighting is good. Mavic is even smaller cross-section so I expect it will be less . . but how much less?. I'm talking VLOS (Visual Line Of Sight) . . no binoculars.

    Anyone share some personal experience I can at least dream about?
    Thanks

    it looks like your in the same boat as me. You can see your Mavic until you order it and then it disappears forever :)

    Don't have any light left or I would test this out for it. But for my short time of having the mavic, I know you can see clearly from 200-300ft up compared to my P4. Closer to the ground its a different story.

    I have flown a few times and about 200-300 feet of elevation and about 1000 feet distance is what I get for visual line of sight until I start to loose it.

    i think when the Mavic transforms to flightmode ( yea it's a transformer), it's almost as wide as a phantom right? Plus the dark grey I'm assuming will b easier to see during the daytime? Imo, it might end up being the same in the end.
