Between his 3-axis stabilized 4K camera, its proximity sensors and folding arms, it is difficult to find faults. Even his look is attractive with a sharp shape that gives it a small racing look. The Mavic Pro can also speed up to 65 km / h in sport mode, all with a maximum range of 7 km and a range of about 27 minutes.

In the field of midrange camera drones, it is difficult to miss the small multirotor Parrot. Although the original model is no longer young, it was improved in 2017 with the Power model.
This new version has the same characteristics as the venerable ancestor. The cabin is however black, giving the drone a more aggressive look. The camera in the nose can shoot in 1080p 30 fps, the whole digitally stabilized. But the Bebop 2 Power stands out with its battery able to keep it in the air for 30 minutes. Its performance is not left behind, since it can expect peaks up to 65 km / h.
