What accessories do you need for the Mavic Pro? That question isn’t always easy to answer; what you should buy mostly depends on your needs and wants. In parts one and two, we looked at some must-have accessories and accessories for travelers. In this part of our series, we’ll look at three add-ons that are great for exacting photographers/videographers and two for pilots who are just looking to have more fun flying.
Accessories for Aerial Photography
Remote Controller Monitor Hood Check the Price
When lining up the perfect shot, seeing your phone screen clearly is invaluable. Bright sunlight can make this difficult, and the Mavic Remote Controller Monitor Hood is the perfect fix. This hood shields your smartphone and the remote controller screen from direct sunlight, giving you a consistently clear view.
2. SanDisk Micro-SD Card (64GB) Check the Price
The Mavic Pro comes with a 16GB Micro-SD card. 16GB is enough for many users, but when shooting lots of 4K video, 16GB may be limiting, as that’s only enough for 35 minutes of 4k footage. A 64GB SanDisk Micro-SD Card can record around 145 minutes in 4K.
3. ND Filters Set Check the Price
ND filters are like sunglasses for your camera. An ND filter allows you to adjust your shutter speed, ISO, or aperture without worrying about overexposure. This extra control over your camera settings during the daytime shooting gives you more creative control over your shots.

Accessories for Extra Fun
An Extra Remote Controller Check the Price
Lots of Mavic users don’t know this, but the Mavic supports dual-operator control. With an extra controller, you can help a friend who’s new to drones learn how to fly. Both the primary and secondary remote controllers can command the aircraft and gimbal, but the primary remote controller will have priority. That allows a more experienced pilot to override a less experienced pilot’s control stick inputs and ensure flight safety. Also, the slave controller can control gimbal movement while the master controller controls flight, so you can cooperate with a friend to get some great shots!
DJI Goggles Check the Price
FPV (first-person view) drone flying is incredibly popular among enthusiasts. Flying with virtual reality goggles gives you a veritable bird’s eye view of your surroundings and makes for an exhilarating experience. Learn more about DJI Goggles here: DJI Goggles unboxing and review.
While DJI products support some third-party goggles, only DJI Goggles are designed by DJI for specifically for DJI drones. Two 1080p screens offer an 85° viewing angle for incredible flight immersion. Transmission is made possible by built-in OcuSync technology, which wirelessly communicates with the Mavic’s controller, unlike many FPV goggles that require a wired connection.
