    Seems I can't post under the Mavic Thread!

    My question is, after paying £1250 for the Fly More Combo, are we expected to fork out more Money to be able to Charge the Batteries indoors from the Mains? I keep seeing a Car Charger is included!

    That package comes with a regular battery charger too.

    Considering the Mavic Pro but am debating waiting to see what bells and whistles the Phantom 5 will have. I'm sure DJI will up the WOW factor to keep the Phantom line going. What do you guys think?

    Here are some of my guesses for new Phantom 5 features:
    • OcuSync
    • More stable landing gear design (to prevent tip overs)
    • Remote controller with a screen (like the Mavic) for redundancy if DJI GO goes down
    • Rear/side sensors for collision detection
    • Bottom sensor for more accurate landings
    • Option to use a larger battery (like the Inspire 1)

    P5 or P4 Pro or whatever it will be called doesn't need a new sensor to land more accurately, all it needs is the latest version of the myriad-2 processor from Movidius the Mavic has. The differences between Mavic and actual P4 in terms of processor are not huge. For more info you can have a read at the link below:

    DJI Unveils Mavic Pro Drone, Powered by Movidius | Machine Vision Technology | Movidius

    Rest of the site is worth a browse to geek out!

    As for the rest you're probably right! Oh, and a better camera I might add.

    Well I personally am not interested in another big Drone! I want something that dose not take up my entire Hand Luggage allowance like my current P3P! I take anywhere from 3 – 5 Holidays a Year outside England hence why I just ordered the Mavic fly longer bundle.

    If your just flying at Home and chucking the Drone into the Car in a Hardcase then its not a problem I suppose, but once you start going abroad it becomes a PITA

    Now I’m deciding if I should just keep both Drones which might be the way to go as my 12 Year old loves flying too :)
