DJI Mavic Pro Accessories – Which ones to get?

DJI Mavic Pro accessories

A lot of people have been very excited about DJI’s newest product line, the DJI Mavic Pro. And rightfully so. The DJI Mavic Pro is an awesome drone (you can read more about it here).

And just like the DJI Phantom 4/Phantom 4 Pro, it’s a great product straight out of the box. But, it can be better. Or wait, that’s not right. Your experience with it can be better.

How? Easy, the same way the the Phantom 4 can be improved; get some DJI Mavic Pro Accessories!

Like the other DJI products, the DJI Mavic Pro is a great piece of design and engineering. It’s portable, it’s got a good camera and it has pretty good flight time. So how can your experience with it be better? Easy, DJI Mavic Pro accessories.

In this article, we’ll list our recommendations in no particular order. Well, almost no particular order. We think everybody should start with extra batteries.

DJI Mavic Pro Batteries

DJI Mavic Pro BatteryThe DJI Mavic Pro boasts a 27 minute flight time and that’s awesome. Especially when we consider how small the DJI Mavic Pro really is. But on the other hand, it’s only 27 minutes. And that’s under perfect circumstances which you’ll rarely encounter.

So, if we want to get some decent flight time in, we’ll want to get at least one more battery., although we suggest getting 2 or 3 while you’re at it. Luckily batteries are widely available so that’s not a problem.

Extra flight time is what makes this our first choice for DJI Mavic Pro accessories.

DJI Mavic Bro Backpack / case

DJI Mavic Pro Pelican CaseThe DJI Mavic Pro is, thanks to it’s small size, very portable. But you’ll want it to be protected when you transport it.

So, we recommend getting either a padded backpack or a hard shell case for your Mavic. Regardless of any other DJI Mavic Pro accessories you get.

Hard shell cases are nice if you travel through rugged terrain where your Mavic bounces around a lot. It’s good to know that the electronics are well protected.

They’re also our preferred way for air travel.

Sometimes you have to cabin check your hand luggage. When this happens you’ll be happy in the knowledge that your DJI Mavic Pro will be well protected in the hold. No worries about it breaking during flight. As we travel a lot this was the second of the DJI Mavic Pro accessories that we bought.

Nanuk DJI Mavic Pro CaseIf you’ve read some of our other articles you’ll know we’re big fans of Pelican cases. They really are the gold standard in hard shell cases which is why we recommend them.

There is also a nice alternative to the Pelican case, the Nanuk DJI Mavic Pro case.

The Nanuk DJI Mavic Pro case comes in several different colors so you can pick one to match your style.

However, for everyday use we find backpacks to be more comfortable.

DJI Mavic Pro MicroRaptor backpackWe recommend getting a padded one with cutouts specifically made for your DJI Mavic Pro. This will offer it the best protection. Coming from a photography background we are partial to Manfrotto backpacks because we’ve always had good experiences with those. Unfortunately, they haven’t released a backpack for the Mavic yet. However, a great alternative is this MicroRaptor backpack.

But, there are lots of other options as well. Like already said, look for one with cutouts made for the Mavic for extra security.

GPS tracker

Trackimo TRKM002 GPS Tracker and Locator - Mini Magnetic Personal Global Real Time Tracking Device For vehicles Kids People Dogs Cars Elderly LuggageYour DJI Mavic Pro is smaller than a DJI Phantom and it’s a lot darker as well. These 2 things combined mean it will be harder to find if it ever lands out of your sight. Yes, we know. That shouldn’t happen. But it can. Perhaps you’ll fly away with tail wind and there’s just not enough power left in your battery to make it all the way back when you fight the headwind. In that case, it’ll be hard to find your DJI Mavic Pro afterward. And this is where a tracker can come in.

There are different trackers but we’ve always been partial to the Trackimo tracker.

Trackimo has a great track record (pardon the bad pun) and this tracker will make it very easy to recover your drone. And when you’re not using it with your DJI Mavic Pro the Trackimo GPS tracker can also be used to track other things like luggage or your car.

ND Filters

DJI Mavic Pro ND FiltersJust like with the Phantom series, ND filters will help improve the quality of your video.

You can read our article on making better video with the Phantom to find out exactly how to to use ND filters. And don’t worry, although the article has some specific tips for the Phantom series, the part about ND filters also applies to the DJI Mavic Pro.

Unfortunately, it’s still too soon for us to make recommendations for specific filters. But don’t worry, we’ll update this article when we have some more information.

FPV Goggles

DJI GogglesWe know, this doesn’t apply to everybody. Local laws mean some people are only allowed to fly Visual-Line-Of-Sight (VLOS). So if you’re in an are where you’re only allowed to fly VLOS you can skip this part. If not, read on!

Goggles are awesome!

There, we’ve said it. There is nothing like the experience flying a drone FPV (First-Person-View). You’ll experience flying in a completely different way. And DJI knows that as well so they’ve included an output for them. But, although DJI has included an output for Goggles and has announced them, they haven’t released the goggles yet. So for now you’ll have to wait a bit for these.

 

Battery Charging Hub

DJI Mavic Pro Battery HubSometimes things in life are very simple. If you’ve bought extra batteries like we recommend, you’ll also have to charge more batteries.

You can obviously use the DJI Mavic Pro charger to do that one battery at a time but you can also use the DJI Mavic Pro charging hub.

DJI designed this hub specifically for the DJI Mavic Pro batteries so you know you don’t have to worry about overcharging them. This makes the charging hub one of our favorite DJI Mavic Pro accessories.

DJI Mavic Pro Car Charger

DJI Mavic Pro Car ChargerEven with a charging hub, sometimes you’ll want to charge your batteries while you’re on the go. And this is where the DJI Mavic Pro Car Charger comes in.

Like any other car charger, it runs off the power provided by the car’s outlet. The DJI Mavic Pro Car Charger takes less than an hour to fully charge a DJI Mavic Pro battery. This makes it great for a quick top up when you’re driving between locations. Or, you can use it to recharge a battery while you’re out flying with your second or third battery.

Either way, it will extend your flight time even further and will allow you to have even more fun.

Micro SD Card Reader

SD card readerYou may already have one of these. Or perhaps your PC/Laptop comes with a port for memory cards. But if not, get a high-performance Micro SD card reader.

Micro SD card readers make it very easy to transfer your videos to your computer. Once they’re there on your PC you can easily edit and/or publish publish your videos.

DJI Mavic Pro Propellers

DJI Mavic Pro PropellersYes, your DJI Mavic Pro comes with propellers. And no, the chance of something happening to them is not very big.

But then, propellers are cheap. At least in comparison to most other DJI Mavic Pro accessories. So just go ahead and pick up an extra pair or 2 and throw them in your bag. It’s like an insurance policy to make sure you can keep flying.

DJI Mavic Pro Bundle

DJI Mavic Pro BundleIf you ended up on this page but you don’t own a DJI Mavic Pro yet, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift, you can also look at some of the DJI Mavic Pro bundles out there.

These DJI Mavic Pro Bundles already include some of the DJI Mavic Pro Accessories that we’ve mentioned in this article. And it’s often cheaper to buy a bundle than it is to buy all products separately.
