So I’m in the market for a new drone

Been looking at the Mavic Pro and the Mavic Air.
I really can’t decide between them as they both have their flaws and advantages.

I like the extra flight time of the Mavic Pro and the screen on the controller with dpad.
I also like that it’s larger than the air so easier to spot in the sky’s.

The Mavic Air is appealing as it’s all new technology, extra sensors, higher bitrate but just unsure about the WiFi signal versus the ocusync.

Originally I was waiting until the 18th for hopefully the new Mavic but it’s been postponed now so back on the fence

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated

M Pro is a fantastic drone.
If you can wait for a few more days, there maybe something new and better coming out.
Just saying.:cool:

Both are equally hard for me to spot in the sky. For easier viewing, you might consider wrapping the drone in a brightly-colored skin.

Ahhh really, if the Mavic Air had 20+ Mind realistic flightine it would probably be an easy decision but 16 mins seems to be around what people are getting which isn’t ideal

Imagining that if and when the Mavic 2 comes out there could be significant deals on the Mavic Pro.
