DJI MAVIC PRO

The Mavic Pro is another one of DJI’s masterpieces. This foldable drone is extremely lightweight and small, making it fly really fast. With its top speed clocking it at over 40mph (cca 65km/h), I believe it’s pretty obvious that we’re looking at a speedy little devil here. But the speed is not the only awesome thing about Mavic Pro…

Thanks for posting this. I am curious about the "smallest" autonomous flying course that can be flown. When a manufacturer says they can fly a course, they are often doing this for large tracts of land, or following a road, river, or power lines.

To photograph a house, can the drone navigate from the four corners of a property that is 60ft x 120ft and shoot the house from all four sides? I really would enjoy feedback from Real Estate Photographers who photograph city homes and hear if they use autonomous flight and how they use it.

I am also curious about roof inspections. A roof inspection is not the same as "Real Estate Photography" even though the drone manufacturers try to make us all believe they will work for that type of inspection. How well does it fly near a roof when the wind is 10mph to 15 mph? Roofs can do strange things to the wind. All the promotional photos I have seen from the drone manufacturers are of "New" homes. I want to see photos of an old roof with all its defects.
