Mavic 2? Phantom 5? – The Rumor Mill says the Mavic Pro 2 is very likely, although it is possible more than one product will be introduced. The MP2 should be a significant upgrade with a larger sensor, more obstacle avoidance and other such tricks. Perhaps a CrystalSky controller would be an option for the more professional Pilot? But the main difference is rumored to be a large sensor for the camera…and perhaps basic zoom capabilities.
DJI has sent out invitations for a NYC launch event for a new product or products. The invitation promises that we will “see the bigger picture” as in the graphic below:
Unlike some other DJI products, there are not yet (as of June 17) any reputable rumors as to exactly what this could be. Our guess, here at Droneflyers.com, is perhaps a Drone with a 360 degree view to take full panoramas. Actually, that may be our #2 guess or tied for #1. Another guess is a model with various lenses (zoom, wide angle, etc.) which can be fitted to it. This has been rumored before as being a potential feature of a “Phantom 5″ model.
Others have suggested it could be the Mavic Pro 2 – maybe it has a 1” sensor and/or wide angle and other features.
Current buying advice – if you have $$ and are considering a Mavic Pro Platinum, it might pay to hold off for a couple weeks. On the other hand, the Mavic Air is quite new and up-to-date, so if this model is in your sights you can probably go ahead and purchase it.
For now we will have to guess…..and wait. We have a forum thread if you want to comment – or leave your FB comments at the bottom of this page. Thanks!
