Dji Mavic or Phantom 4 Pro? Drone v drone

Which should you buy? The DJI mavic Pro or the Phantom 4 pro?

Colin Smith puts them through their paces and shows you both.


Pros: Lightweight, portable, affordable, batteries are reasonably priced. 20mins or so flight time, rotating camera, Quick to set up and fly. Fast shooting.
Cons: Can be a bit bumpy on video while flying in wind because of light weight. Hard to move gimbal smoothly while shooting video. Gimbal is very fragile. Crooked horizon often,

Phantom 4 Pro

Pros: 1″ sensor, sharp photos and video. Good Dynamic Range. Good Low light shooting for photos and video. Very stable, even in moderate wind. 360 obstacle avoidance. Good flight time with upgraded battery (over 20 mins).

Cons: Heavier and larger than Mavic. More expensive.
