Like all of DJI’s consumer drones, the Mavic Pro is ready to fly right out of the box. Just pop two propellers on and you’re good to go. But if you look around on the internet, you’ll see that some users don’t just settle for the basics. Picking up some spare parts and add-ons can set you and your Mavic Pro apart from the crowd.
1 – Extra Batteries
Avid UAV pilots know that one battery is never enough. While the Mavic has a maximum flight time of 27 minutes, but that’s only in windless conditions and flying at a constant speed of 15kph. If you appreciate a good adrenaline rush and like flying in Sport mode, your flight time will be closer to 20 minutes, or less. Flying for just 20 minutes can be kind of a buzzkill. If you want to fly more, consider getting yourself a Mavic Pro Fly More Combo, or two or three extra batteries.
2 – Extra Propellers
No one wants to crash, but it happens to the best of us. Maybe you accidently descend into some tree branches, or you fly just a little too confidently and clip the side of a building. If you do crash, your propellers are the first thing to break. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a spare set on hand.
3 – Battery Charging Hub (Advanced)
The single-battery charger included with the Mavic Pro does its job well, but swapping out fully charged batteries for uncharged ones requires time and attention. The new Mavic Pro Advanced Battery Charging Hub is a smart, quick and reliable way to charge up to four Intelligent Flight Batteries in a single session. The Advanced Battery Charging Hub automatically identifies battery power levels and charges them accordingly, from highest to lowest. Compared to the standard charging hub, the advanced version fully charges four batteries in one hour less. Used together with a Phantom 4 charger, the charging time can be reduced to 2.5 hours.
4 – Aircraft Sleeve
The Mavic Pro Aircraft Sleeve provides additional peace of mind during transport and storage. With a soft, padded interior, the Aircraft Sleeve minimizes the risk of the drone being scratched or damaged and prevents dust from accumulating during storage.
5 – Propeller Guard
Protect people and objects nearby from spinning propellers by mounting these light plastic bumpers under the motors. Propeller Guards aren’t necessary for experienced pilots, but they’re a helpful accessory for new pilots and when flying in tight spaces or indoors.
6 – Shoulder Bag
Specially designed for the Mavic Pro, the Shoulder Bag is small, compact, and perfect when traveling light. With the Mavic and remote controller in the main pocket, you can fit three additional batteries, a smartphone, and extra cables and accessories in the side pockets.
