For tenacious travelers seeking aerial photography solutions, there is arguably no better option than the DJI Mavic Pro. Right out of the box, the Mavic Pro is prepared to accompany you on ski trips, jungle excursions, seaside strolls, or savanna safaris. And several key accessories will ensure your Mavic Pro is the perfect travel companion. Let’s take a look at six must-have travel accessories for the Mavic Pro.
Shoulder Bag Check the Price
Having climbed my fair share of mountains with aerial photography equipment in tow, I can confidently say that the Mavic Pro and its Shoulder Bag are a godsend. Phantom and Inspire series drones are fantastic, but unless you’re up for a serious challenge, bringing them up mountains in bulky backpacks can be a hassle.
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, extra cables, and accessories in the side pockets. Save yourself back strain and pick up the Shoulder Bag!
Remote Controller Monitor Hood Check the Price
You’re flying on a beach. The sun is beating down. You look down at your phone, but the screen is too dark to see anything. You turn the controller to see if that helps, but instead, the sun reflects off the screen and shines directly in your eyes, temporarily blinding you.
This Remote Controller Monitor Hood makes it so this doesn’t happen. It effectively shields your smartphone and the remote controller LCD screen from direct sunlight, giving you a clearer view.
Car Charger Check the Price
This accessory is a must-have for long road trips, and the Car Charger charges batteries faster than the standard wall charger! It only takes 54 minutes to charge one battery fully, and four batteries charge in just 3 hours and 15 minutes with the Mavic Battery Charging Hub (Advanced).
Extra Batteries Check the Price
Avid UAV pilots know that one battery is never enough, especially when you’re trying to make the most out of a trip. Who wants to sit in a coffee shop charging a battery when you could be seeing more sites instead?
While the Mavic has a maximum flight time of 27 minutes, that’s only in windless conditions and flying at a constant speed of 15 kph. If you appreciate a good adrenaline rush and like flying in Sport mode, your flight time will be closer to 20 minutes, or less, and 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.
Extra Propellers Check the Price
No one wants to crash, but it happens to the best of us. Maybe you accidentally 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, especially if you’re travelling in remote areas where you can’t buy spare parts!
Battery Charging Hub (Advanced) Check the Price
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 in sequence, from highest to lowest. Compared to the standard charging hub, the advanced version fully charges four batteries in one hour less.
