Fall is the season for new drones: DJI's Mavic Pro

Boot Camp feature for Friday, October 7, 2016

Fall is the season for new drones.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    It has been a busy time for companies that make the most popular drones.  Parrot is out with the Disco fixed wing drone,  there’s the PowerVision Egg,  GoPro has entered the mix with the Karma and now DJI has unveiled the Mavic Pro.      It folds up for easy carrying….has lots of smarts…battery life of nearly half an hour and says DJI’s Adam Lisberg….

“A year ago drones were larger creatures.  Six months ago you started seeing foldable drones coming out.  And today we have come in with something that is certainly not the cheapest drone in the market in this category but we think it is the best.  It has the power, it has the features.”

The DJI Mavic Pro, arriving this month,  is priced at about 750 dollars…and can use your smart phone as a controller.  If you want a dedicated controller and longer range…the kit is priced at 999.    You can find us at     I’m Fred Fishkin.
