Mavic Mini, Mavic Air and Mavic 2 Pro – How much can they lift?

The DJI Mavic series is not really meant to haul payloads, but if you want to know how much each of these 3 drones can carry, watch this video. Also, I calculate the power index, to demonstrate which of them can lift the most amount of weight for it’s size. Sorry, I did not include the Mavic Pro, as mine is not functioning properly right now.

I’ve been flying with the Ipad Pro 11″, and it has made my flying experience much more enjoyable. It’s an investment, but totally worth it! Get it here:https://amzn.to/36ydviv

  5. Fly Zone on January 24, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    I used a magnet attached from Mini 2 to rescue Mavic Mini and lift it
    away (video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AKfdfOqrhM&t=3s

  6. Roberto Oliveira on January 24, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    Do mini 2!

  7. Gary Rendano on January 24, 2021 at 7:55 pm

    only adding 25 grams at a time.. what will you deliver with it? marajiuana?

  8. Mule Crusher on January 24, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    Can you re make this video using the new much better mavic mini 2 please ?

  9. Elwyn Jones on January 24, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    You could do that test in a far simpler fashion. Tie the weight of 1kg anchor, place on a scale and then lift , the drone would reduce the 1kg to give you the mass that the drone could lift, you’d need to include the string, hook etc as before, the benefit would be not having to put weights in and out of the box. Just simply read of and subtract from 1kg. If the reading was 755 grams, that would be 1,000 – 755 = 245 gram lift.

    why not use fishing line?seems alot lighter than actual rope.

  11. Speaking Truth on January 24, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Awesome!

  12. Drew Gifford on January 24, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    good to watch though not complete at all.. all drones/ sport/normal mode?

  13. Daniel Stevenson on January 24, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    I carry a small bag of horse feed on mine and my horses follow the drone back to the barn,all while I’m sitting in my backyard.

  14. HexBleh on January 24, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    it’s called a pop filter , and you can probably use a little hot glue to keep it on there

    just don’t block the mic hole with any glue

  15. BradleyBuchanan on January 24, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    Did you turn sensors off? And was this sport? Wonder if the Mavic was seeing the box below it?

  16. Ari Heiskanen on January 24, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Very interesting video! Thank you for saving my own motors 💪🏼❤️

  17. Oscar Flores on January 24, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    Please tell me this mavic can bring my other drone down ? It’s a holy stone hs720

  18. Brent Jessop on January 24, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    How did you rig it on the mavic pro

  19. HardkohrPiraat on January 24, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    What sort of mount do you use for your iPad Pro? I have the same one (11") and a Mavic Pro 1.

  20. Andy Anderson on January 24, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    This is old

  21. TriviumArts on January 24, 2021 at 8:14 pm

  22. Roxxzzo on January 24, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    youved made a drug dealer very happy today

  23. Jhersan_28 on January 24, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    I wish I have dji drone too so I can continue my aerial vlog

  24. Rodi Mousa on January 24, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    I don’t think its great idea lol it gives stress to the motore of the drone

  25. Ron Marvicsin on January 24, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    How do you attach it to the drone?

  26. SPOOKYFAST 1 on January 24, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Next time trim your paracord a few inches to get down to 100 grams. Will make for a little simpler "QUICK" math lol.

  27. Craig Fisher on January 24, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    I used sport mode on my Mavic Pro 2 and lifted 27 ounces. I managed to fly it 1200 yards and dropped the load without any problems.

  28. Gabe Smith on January 24, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Answers:
    Mavic Mini 181 grams
    Mavic Air 331 grams
    Mavic 2 Pro 531 grams

  29. Let's Drone It Out!!!! on January 24, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Check out this amazing pictures and videos that was done by my Mini 2, Thank you!

  30. Bill Callahan on January 24, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Watch Flag Flight 2 on the Tube. 5 aircraft towable banners held aloft by Q500.

  31. Daniel Ken on January 24, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    Let’s try Mavic mini against the ne mini to check the strength of those motors.

  32. Ruzzel Beejay Buen Ocampo on January 24, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Nice comparison

  33. Khohva BFV on January 24, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    This is the easiest way to trap

  34. Moto Adventures on January 24, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Was payload mode enabled during the tests?

  35. David Ferree on January 24, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Fun video! I thought the mini would do a lot more, just because mine seems to pull upward with a lot more force than it’s weight when I screw up a hand catch. Hey, next time? Cut a little bit of box or line off to make your “tare” an even 200 (or even whatever).

  36. Kamu Güncel Haber on January 24, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    👍👍👍

  37. prime edits on January 24, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    U could have measured it exactly if u put a 1kg mass on weight machine . Tie one end of thread to the mass and other to drone. Lift the drone, as it flies , it reduces the weight of that mass on machine. So the machine shows reduced mass which in turn, a weight lift by drone…👍

  38. Caleb Guffey on January 24, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Got my mini 2 to carry 297 grams

  39. CoolAsFreya on January 24, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    So the Mavic 2 pro can carry two Mavic Minis, this information is useless but interesting

  40. A Dee on January 24, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    A Dee
    Hello there,

    I recently purchased a Mavic Mini. Before flying i watched your’s & few other videos for guidance.
    You have given lots of your time on these tutorial & on your experimental videos.

    I noticed there are few Apps which supports Mini, like ‘Litchi’, & ‘DroneLink’ etc., but I could not see any video by experienced person like you,

    I need to know which App is better. There are lots of videos by Dronelink but most of them are by developer & the reviews on Play-Store are not encouraging.

    If you have uploaded any video on Litchi or Dronelink, please send me links.

    Regards

    A. Durrani

    I remember watching this vid when I always wanted a magic mini or a DJI product. Almost a year later I’m watching this vid and I have All 3 of those drones.

  42. Johnny Salaza on January 24, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    Great video, might use my new Mini 2 to replace my Phantom 3 for fishing. 😎👍

  43. Enfoque Comunicación on January 24, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    Great video! Thanks for sharing! Question: would you recommend to use a drone for advertising? Like carrying a banner?? Is it legal in the States? Do you know how to make it? We tried with phatoms but took us a lot of time to figure a way the banner don’t bring down the drone. We did it with a banner made of that material with a lot of holes on it, you use it for sticking advertising on glass. And with a lot of nylon strand to keep the banner away from the drone, hanging from it like a kite. It works but Í wonder if there are other ways.
    Sorry about my english, I write from Southamerica.

    Once, when I was in prison…

  46. Mason Jerman on January 24, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    did you have payload mode on? i know for the mini there is a specific mode when there is extra weight

  47. Kieran F on January 24, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    You should try this with the mini 2

  48. Krystian Krychu on January 24, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    give it extra battery or modify some to extend fly to 1h 😀

  49. Max's Prduct Review on January 24, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    Guess you are comparing apples with oranges… What do U expect from Mavic mini ?

  50. King Leonidas 52 on January 24, 2021 at 8:48 pm
