PolarPro DJI Mavic Air Leg Extensions / Landing Gear

Published

on

In this video we take a closer look at the PolarPro DJI Mavic Air Leg Extensions / Landing Gear. Some of DJI small folding drones are fantastic in the fact that they are very portable and take up very little room in a camera bag, however this can also create a problem. In trying to keep the Mavic Air’s footprint as small as possible there tends to be very little clearance between the ground and the camera and gimbal. This can cause problems when trying to take off / land is grass, gravel and sand. When the gimbal calibrates before take off it moves all around. If the camera happens to hit some gravel it could potential scratch the camera lens. Sand and debris can get into the gimbal motors and cause problems as well. Lets not forget grass getting wrapped around the motors and propellers.

Polar Pro makes a nice landing gear extension kit for the DJI Mavic Air. Installation is easy and they raise the Mavic Air by 1.35 inches. During my test flights I found that there was no difference in flight performance or battery use as these extensions weigh almost nothing and have a very small profile.

Review Of Polar Pro Katana For DJI Mavic Air | Hand Held Rig

Published

on

In this video we are taking a closer look at the Katana by PolarPro for the Mavic Air. This unit turns your DJI Mavic Air into a powerful hand-held stabilized camera rig. Now some may ask why you would want to turn you Mavic Air into a hand-held camera, a better question is why wouldn’t you want to! The Mavic air has a really good quality camera on board it records at 4K 60 FPS and at 100 MBS. The Mbits per second is higher that the iPhone and the GoPro Hero 6 so theoretically can capture a higher quality video. With its built-in gimbal for stabilized footage it makes for a great hand-held option and doesn’t require the expense of perhaps buying another camera if you wish to capture ground footage.

One of the really nice features of the PolarPro Katana is the fact that it is expandable. If you purchase a kit for the Mavic Air, but later purchase a DJI Spark the unit will be compatible. All you need to do is purchase the Spark specific mount, you don’t have to purchase a complete kit again. PolarPro also sells separately or in a kit a T-Grip handle that makes it easier to capture low footage. Currently the PolarPro Katana is compatible with the DJI Spark, Mavic Air, Mavic Pro/Platinum and I am confident that as DJI releases new compact drones, Polar Pro will make new mounts for them to make them work with the Katana system.

I have been using the PolarPro Katana for about a month now, I have had a good amount of time to test and play with it. I am really pleased with it performance and ease of use. Mounting the Mavic Air or other DJI Drones is quick and easy. The handles make it comfortable to hold and really helps you grab some beautiful stable footage. It comes apart nicely and easily fits into your backpack until your ready to use it again.

DJI Sling Bag Review | Best Case For The DJI Goggles

Published

on

If you have been looking for a storage solution for your DJI Goggles you may want to take a look at the DJI Sling Bag. This sling bag style case is designed to hold the DJI Goggles as well as a Mavic Pro or Mavic Air, it also works well with the DJI Spark. One of the really nice features of the DJI Sling bag is the fact that it is convertible which means if you are only going to be storing the goggles inside, it zips up small so you don’t have all the extra bulk. However if you wish to carry a drone in the pack as well, there is plenty of room. It can hold a total of 3 Mavic Pro batteries plus remote, or 5 Mavic Air batteries and remote.

This bag looks and feels like a premium product, something that I have come to expect from DJI gear. One thing I have not been able to find out online is if the bag is water-resistant. Due to the design of the zippers and material I would have to say it is. Overall a nice case for the DJI Goggles. Watch our review video featuring the DJI Goggles sling bag.
