The GDU 02 Plus

DJI had just revamped their Mavic Pro to Mavic Pro Platinum and before you know it, GDU Technology, a Chinese based drone company, had come up with the GDU 02 Plus that’s said to give the Mavic Pro Platinum a run for its money. According to WETALKUAV, the GDU 02 Plus can record videos in time lapse and slow motion, which is a first for a drone. Its propellers slide out of its body instead of swinging out like in the Mavic Pro. The arms are of aviation aluminium alloy which gives it light-weight durability. The Radio Controller for the GDU can be latched to the drone for portability. Together it looks like a brick. The endurance of the drone is 20 minutes and can reach speeds of 54 kph which is pretty fast for this range of drones. The camera is a 1/3 inch CMOS 13 MP capable of taking 4K videos with a resolution of 3840×2160 in 25 and 30 fps. It can reach up to a distance of 6.5 km. 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:
