  1. We get a lot of questions about the Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Mini. I put all of the videos together. If you are interested in learning more about the Mavic Air 2 or the Mavic Mini we've done it all. Range tests, battery tests, flight comparisons, camera tests and a bunch more. Links below if you are interested. Mavic Air 2 Mavic Mini
  2. Hey guys, here are a couple of videos about the Mavic Mini that might be interesting to you. Enjoy!
  3. Sorry for the delay. Notifications are turned on now. Thanks!
  4. The primary difference is that the Advanced version only has forward obstacle avoidance while the 4 Pro V2 also offers rear camera-based avoidance and side IR-based avoidance. I personally find myself turning off avoidance most of the time. A lot of people bought the Advanced because of the seriously discounted price compared to the Pro. Unfortunately, DJI doesn't make this model anymore so the good deals have mostly dried up. The cameras are the same, the power, flight time, etc, are all the same. I hope that helps!
  5. This is an unbelievable deal. I am selling this drone about half the price of a Phantom 4 V2 and it has the same camera! Short of spending about $8000 on a Phantom 4 RTK, this is the best drone for mapping. Period. And it is only 1/10th the price with this unbelievable price. The 20 MP sensor and global mechanical shutter can't be beaten for mapping, photography, and many video applications, not even by the newer Mavic 2 Pro. I am taking advantage of the high tariffs and lack of Phantom availability to sell my under-utilized drone. One lucky buyer will get an unbelievable deal on an incre
  6. We did a pretty detailed comparison among the Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic Air and Autel Evo. You might be surprised by the result.
  7. I've flown a bunch of different goggles. I love the new Skyzones. GO with the O2C model not the 02x. The camera is a gimmick. Otherwise the goggles are very good. https://youtu.be/mQ0n4xWREDU
  8. I support a drone club at a high school outside of Chicago. We have recently competed against other local high schools. It is a pretty awesome thing. Just sharing. https://youtu.be/m2KjHB0e_RQ https://www.halfchrome.com/godronex/
  9. I've got one on the way. I'll let you know how it turns out.
  10. I spent several weeks evaluating 54 filters for the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom to see what company makes the best filters. I evaluated the filters based on 16 different metrics and I learned more than you ever wanted to know about filters.If you want to see who comes out on top of my evaluation, check out my article or YouTube video.https://dronedj.com/2019/01/06/mavic-2-filters/Cheers,Chris https://youtu.be/u6I2DvSwTRA
  11. We picked up some Freewell filters for our Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom and then we put them to the test. Check it out.
  12. We were on hand in NY for the launch of the new Mavic 2. DJI puts on a great event and the drones did not disappoint. Check out our video from the event with a flight of the Mavic 2.
  13. Here is a compilation of some of our work using various drones: Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, Typhoon, Phantoms, Spark, Anafi, FPV racers and more. Check it out.
  14. I really enjoy flying the Anafi. The unique gimbal allows for shots that you just cannot get with any other drone. Here is some video of it in action.
  15. I was skeptical that Parrot could create a real competitor to the Mavic Air, but was presently surprised by the Anafi. Here is what I think. I'd love to hear your thoughts? https://youtu.be/xpUpLHt-21E
  16. We've done a lot of work with 360-degree cameras and the footage can be unbelievable. Then we put it on a drone and it just got better. Hopefully DJI is working on this, if not then we might just have to figure it out ourselves. What do you think?
  17. DJI makes some claims about the new Phantom 4 V2.0 propellers, so we decided to put them to the test. They are quieter, but really how much? Do they generate more thrust? Are they worth putting on your Phantom 4? Check it out.
  18. We put together some of our tips for getting started with aerial photography specifically related to real estate. We have done a few shoots and it is a great way to earn money and have fun doing it. Lots of people ask what is the best drone to start with, so we put this together. Check it out. https://www.halfchrome.com/best-real-estate-drone/
  19. Yes, the Pro camera is better but not by much. For the general user, the Air is probably the best all-around option. It is my current favorite drone.
  20. The new DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 looks like an awesome new drone. It is the best Phantom DJI has released, but it isn't a huge upgrade. Quieter props and Occusync are both nice, but I wouldn't go trading in your current Phantom just yet. What do you think? https://youtu.be/YUGfyM0F-tU
  21. Hey guys. We did a detailed comparison of the cameras of the DJI Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, and Spark. Let us know what you think. You can see the post here: https://www.halfchrome.com/mavic-air-camera/. From the site you can download the original images we took so you can compare for yourself.
