There are no folding and folding components, nuts and a pile of blades. DJI Mavic Pro Combo reveals propellers, launches and flies. When folded, the drone is comparable in size to a conventional smartphone. It’s also worth mentioning that DJI Mavic Pro Combo works quite quietly and does not give the impression that a helicopter is flying along the street.
The drone has a system of auto flight. A set of sensors GLONASS and GPS allow the aircraft to feel calm in the air. Also worth noting is that the sensor system monitors the situation around the drone, preventing the collision.
