DJI Announce Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom
After a long wait, DJI has just announced two new additions to their Mavic Series; the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom. The announcement took place at DJI’s See the Bigger Picture event in New York where DJI detailed their features and showed the two drones in action.
