The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 18 m/s. This might not be a bad thing though, so it really depends on why you're looking at buying the drone. If you're happy with a slightly slower drone then this one could be what you're after.

With a well above the average maximum range of 7 km, you're guaranteed a long-distance flight. Be assured you'll reach the distance you need, from the comfort of your mobile office, or even your couch, and know that your drone won't just disappear off into the distance.

The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 30 min. This flight time will be plenty of the average user, and should give you more than enough time between charges. You can always bring an extra battery to swap out between flights, or just a battery pack to charge it up as you go should you need a little more flight time.

Is This Drone Worth The Upgrade?

We think the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is worth the upgrade. Given how it features noise-reduction propellers for quieter flight sessions. In addition to that, it comes with improved flight time that lets you fly the drone for longer time compared to the original mode. It still have the same great and fun features, including useful intelligent flight modes. This is one of the possible best foldable drone that is worth the upgrade and we recommend it to all remote pilots, including beginners.

DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Review
  • - 4.5
If you're after a compact quadcopter for vlogging, video production, and photography, the Mavic Pro Platinum is what you want, but it's expensive. DJI does sell another small model, the Spark, which is now available for less than its $500 MSRP. The Spark is OK for casual use, but its flight time is very short and video is just 1080p. It packs a lot of tech into a small frame, but it's more of a toy than a real creative tool. So while the Mavic Pro Platinum is pricey, it's the best of the bunch, and our Editors' Choice.
