DJI Mavic Drone Comparison
When buying a Mavic drone new or more especially online on eBay, it is important to know the difference between the different models so that you can judge if you are getting a good deal or not and the features you are expecting.
DJI released the Mavic Pro in 2016 as the first drone in the Mavic series.
This drone was possibly the very first drone on the market for personal use that is capable of capturing 4K video. This was a considerable leap forward in aerial video photography quality.
The Mavic Pro has a flight range of approximately 4.3 miles (7km) with a battery flight time of 27 minutes.
Mavic Pro Platinum
DJI released an upgraded version of the Mavic Pro in 2017, the Mavic Pro Platinum.
The Platinum edition provides an extension to the flight time to a maximum of 30 minutes due to having improved motors and re-designed propellers making it both faster and more efficient.
Released in 2018, the Mavic Air is the first “pocket-sized” portable drone being able to capture 4K video at 30 frames per second (FPS).
The Air has a 3-axis gimbal and 25mm lens. See the Mavic Air Specifications page for full details.
The Air also has a Smart-Capture feature, a three-directional environment sensing system, and a max flight time of 21 minutes.

How to tell the Mavic 2 Pro from the Mavic 2 Zoom?
Here is a side by side picture of the Pro and Zoom drones so that you can see the difference.
Look at the camera shape, the ZOOM has a round camera whereas the PRO is more oblong and says “Hasselblad” at the top.
This should help you to see if an eBay listing title and description match the pictures they have.
Make sure to check as it does get confusing!

Most recently on October 30th, 2019, DJI announced the Mavic Mini.
This drone is a replacement for the now-discontinued DJI Spark and positioning it as a beginner camera drone.
The Mavic Mini camera is on a three-axis gimbal and features a 12MP sensor capable of 2.7K video at 30 FPS.
It is most notable for its portability and overall small size.
DJI’s marketing behind the Mavic Mini focuses on the weight of the drone at 249 grams (8.8 oz), allowing it to bypass (current as at December 2019) drone registration regulations in several western countries like the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Please check your local drone laws before you purchase ANY drone to make sure you can fly it in your area and with or without registration and taking a Drone Pilot examination test.
