Flying DJI's First FPV Drone Is an Exhilarating but Imperfect Experience

DJI is widely known for its commercial drones that are easy to use and friendly to newcomers, as well as for its content creation features for vlogs and even cinematography. With its new first-person view drone, DJI wanted to make a splash in the drone-flying community with a quad that toes the line. The DJI FPV…Read more...

DJI launches an all-in-one FPV drone system

DJI has flirted with FPV goggles before, of course. The company got on the burgeoning FPV movement with the launch of its DJI Goggles back in 2016. It was a logical extension for the company that controls around 70% of the drone market, at last count, and a push toward a more mainstream experience for what has largely been the realm of hobbyists. Today, it takes another important step toward conquering that market with the launch of DJI FPV. The simply named new drone model is aimed at offering ...

For people who want to get into drones but don’t want to deal with the hassle of registering their tiny flying cameras, DJI’s Mavic Mini was an almost ideal solution.

DJI’s pint-sized Mavic Mini gets camera and connection upgrades

We dug DJI’s Mavic Mini when the drone arrived last year. As Matt noted in his review, “It packs everything critical to be a quality drone. It has a good camera, good range and a good controller. It holds up well in the wind and is quick enough to be fun.” Today, DJI improves two of those things with the arrival of the Mini 2. The new version, which hits retail today, is more refinement than redefinition. This is one of those cases where that’s perfectly fine, as the first release was a solid...

The Tour de France bikes, ranked

Jumbo-Visma rides Bianchi. Tim de Waele/Getty Images The 107th Tour de France got rolling in Nice on August 29 and finished in Paris on Sunday. 176 riders started and 146 finished. The 21-year-old Slovenian Tadej Pogačar won the three-week race after dramatically snatching the leader's yellow jersey from compatriot Primož Roglič on Saturday's penultimate stage, an hourlong time trial with a demanding summit finish. With the racing done, we again ranked each of the 22 teams' bikes, based on...

DJI Mavic Air 2 Review: Fantastic drone, despite obstacle avoidance blindspots

I’m supposed to get photos as soon as I take something out of the box. I know better. The rule is not to play with the gadget first. I’m going to crash the drone; I always do. I crashed the DJI Mavic Air 2 and broke a landing peg. I flew the drone before I took pictures and of course, the drone found a tree. I swear it’s not my fault this time. I quickly discovered the Mavic Air 2 obstacle avoidance technology is not up to par with its competition. And yet I still love this drone. The Mavic A...

DJI Claims the Mavic Air 2 Is Its Smartest Drone Yet, But It's Definitely Not Its Lightest

The DJI Mavic Mini Blew Me Away

The tiniest drones are the worst ones, I always thought. It was nearly 10 years ago that I tried to fly my first quadcopter: the Estes Proto X (no relation). The thing was so light and unstable that, as soon as it was airborne, it caught a gust of wind and flew directly into my eye. So when I got the new Mavic Mini,…Read more...

DJI Mavic Mini Review

The $399 Mavic Mini lives in a sweet spot of core features and a low price. It packs everything critical to be a quality drone. It has a good camera, good range, and a good controller. It holds up well in the wind and is quick enough to be fun. And it’s so small that you’re more likely to throw it in your bag and take it on Instagram adventures. The small size is the Mavic Mini’s main selling point. It weighs 249 grams, and that odd number isn’t an accident. Drones that weight 250 grams and a...

DJI Mavic Mini: A powerful drone the size of your phone!

You’ve got to admire how DJI has absolutely perfected the art of stabilized video. Whether they’re the drones, consumer gimbals, or the massive handheld Ronin rigs used in cinema, DJI knows how to maneuver a camera, no matter whether it’s a massive cinematography instrument, or something as minuscule as the lens on the DJI Osmo Pocket. Now imagine taking that expertise, and that incredibly small and cutting edge tech, and giving it wings. That’s the DJI Mavic Mini. A camera worthy of the Mavic...

DJI announces the smallest Mavic drone yet

The Mavic Pro was a revelation when DJI announced it a little over three years ago. The foldable drone was precisely the shot in the arm the industry needed to help make the technology more accessible for the masses. In July, I paid a visit to the markets of Shenzhen, and it’s clear that the design has had a profound impact on both the industry at large and the public perception of a drone’s platonic ideal. DJI, meanwhile, has spent the last few years refining the line and building up a ro...

DJI's Mavic Mini Wants to Be the Drone for Everyone

DJI just announced the latest member of its Mavic line, and it is tiny. The foldable Mavic Mini is roughly the size of three smartphones stacked on top of each other and weighs just 249 grams.

Parrot’s latest drone targets professionals with a thermal camera

The last several years have seen an interesting pivot for Parrot, from bluetooth headset/speakers to drones. The company’s ANAFI line is probably one of the best positioned products to go head to head with DJI’s successful Mavic line, but the company’s looking to take things a bit further by moving beyond hobbyists/consumers. The system’s primary differential from other products in the line is the inclusion of the titular thermal camera designed by Flir. The ANAFI Thermal is capable of captu...

Mavic goes gravel, carbon, and 650b with Allroad Pro Carbon SL & SL+ wheels

Mavic adds carbon rims for custom wheels, hubs coming & prototype gravel wheels

Back in the day, if you were going to build a custom set of wheels, chances were pretty good you’d be surrounding them with Mavic’s alloy rims.

Mavic adds Elite carbon mountain bike wheels, Deemax update & MicroSpline option

Mavic introduced their first full carbon mountain bike rims as part of the 2016 XA Pro Carbon wheelset.

Comparing a $50 knockoff drone with a $1400 Mavic 2 Pro

How does a $50 drone compare against a $1,400 Mavic 2 Pro? Well, I was hoping this test would reveal that the $50 knockoff was about half as good as the Mavic. But it turns out that the knockoff is so crappy that it's 0% as good. It can't deal with a light breeze, it loses its radio connection frequently, the camera is garbage, and the battery dies without warning. The Mavic 2 Pro, on the other hand, is a thing of beauty, with built-in GPS so it hovers, and a gorgeous video image. Image: Indy...

DJI finally releases a $650 Mavic 2 controller with built-in screen

The DJI Smart Controller lets Mavic 2 owners take to the skies without the need of a mobile device. The $650 controller includes a 5.5-inch screen that can display images streamed from the connected drone in full HD resolution. DJI says this screen is twice as bright as mobile screens, too, which should make it easier to use in direct sunlight. The device is a smart, though expensive accessory for drone owners. Right now, for most drones on the market, owners have to connect a mobile phone to...
