Maiden Flight with my DJI Mavic Pro

Yes, folks after the unboxing and the required calibration, I finally took it for my maiden flight at none other then Independence Square (Dataran Merdeka). As I was driving towards my destination, to my horror I saw raindrops against my windscreen. I felt terrible thinking what a time for it to rain. Anyway, on reaching, the drizzle had somewhat reduced to occasional drops, permitting flight.

Took off and I was amazed at the DJI Mavic Pro’s performance. It was very responsive to the controls without any drag or lag, smooth take off and it hovered with such great stability. It responded quick to the touch of the controls and you could hardly hear the drone. Believe me, having flown a Yuneec Q500+, the DJI Mavic Pro is in a league  of its own. I hope to check out the other capabilities in the near future and keep you all posted. Check out the maiden flight video with my new DJI Mavic Pro. Cheers and Fly Safe

Bought my DJI Mavic Pro

Christmas came early for me. Yes, folks I decided to treat myself and bought myself a DJI Mavic Pro. I found a dealer, DronesKaki, who seemed to offer a fantastic deal with a lot of added gifts. So called him up and to my surprise, he informed me that if I were to purchase it through 11Street,  I would enjoy even better discounts from his store. True enough for RM5695.00 I got a Fly More Combo deal.

They even offer you a 0% interest free instalment plan on your credit card.  The details of the outlet is as follows:

Quickly did an unboxing video (in Malay since there is so many other videos in English). Will soon post what its like flying it once I get over the excitement of owning a DJI Mavic Pro. 😅  Fly Safe

Titiwangsa Lake Park

Went down to Lake Titiwangsa to take an aerial shot of the area. It was a good sunny day with a sight breeze in the air. Took the drone for a ‘walk’ along the tree canopy as you can see in the beginning of the video. Turned out great. Check out the video. Fly Safe
