DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Update 16th November 2017. The price difference between the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum fly more combo and the DJI Mavic Pro fly more combo is $350 +. That's a lot of coin for what I see as very little difference. Sure the Platinum is 60% quieter but did you know that is still only 4db? Sure it will stay in flight for 2-3 minutes longer but do you want to push it that hard anyway? Wouldn't it make more sense to spend $350-$400 less and buy another spare battery for $150 which means that you have a fully usable 20 minutes of extra flight rather than 2-3 extra minutes at the end of flight? You will have your own thoughts, we just thought we would share ours.

DJI has announced (September 1st 2017) the upcoming update to the DJI Mavic Pro, namely the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum.

So what is the big deal about the newer Mavic Pro Platinum? Not much as far as we can tell. DJI is claiming 3 more minutes of hover time (in zero breeze!). The colour is different ...

Beyond the couple of minutes DJI is claiming 30 minutes of flight time BUT read the small print. That's 30 minutes in zero wind at 25kph and not with a head wind or flying at 70kph so I reckon you can work on 23-25 minutes whereas at the moment you will get 20 minutes in 30-40kph wind.

DJI claim that the new DJI Mavic Pro Platinum (along with it's new propellers) is quieter than the original DJI Mavic Pro. Well, so what? See if you can tell the difference ... to me this is not a reason to pay more for the Platinum.

BTW, It is in fact the new propellers on the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum which in the process of making it quieter, presumably due to less flexibility that make for better battery power.

Is the new "Platinum" version of the DJI Mavic Pro worth more money? This reviewer has, at least on first look, the same point of view as me.

You will be able to buy the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum as a single unit as is the case with the Non-Platinum model and later on there is to be a DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Fly More Combo.
