Turn You Mavic Air Into A Handheld Stabilized Camera | PGYTECH Handle & Tripod Review

Published

on

If you are an owner of the DJI Mavic Air you may just want to take a closer look at the PGYTECH Mavic Air handle and tripod accessory. This nifty little device turns you Mavic Air into a handheld stabilized camera. Some of its key features are built-in phone mount, built-in tripod, and integrated GoPro mount.

The Mavic Air has a really good camera, in fact, it has a higher bit rate than a GoPro Hero 6 Black, it makes sense to use it as a camera to capture ground footage as well. This saves you having to pack extra cameras and camera gear if you want to grab a few quick shots from the ground to blend in with your drone videos. Then when you consider the fact that many of us already own all the Mavic Air ND filter sets that can be used when filming handheld as well.

The PGYTECH handle and tripod has a nice build quality and is extremely lightweight, this makes packing it in a backpack easy and convenient. If you carry a GoPro in you drone pack as well then it is a double win as this handle does have a built-in GoPro mount. You can use your GoPro and mount your smartphone to get a nice feed of what you’re filming.

A nice little must-have accessory for the DJI Mavic Air. Watch our YouTube video review for an in-depth review and sample footage shot on the Mavic Air while mounted in the PGYTECH handle and tripod accessory.

PolarPro Flight Deck Review | The Best Crystal Sky & Tablet Mount for DJI Drones

Published

on

A few weeks back Polar Pro launched one of its newest products called the Flight Deck and I have been waiting for a mount like this for a very long time. Flight Deck is a system for mounting your Crystal Sky monitor in you DJI Mavic Pro/Mavic 2 and Mavic Air controller. However, with the included free tablet mount it is also a great solution for mounting tablets in the controller as well. The best part is, with its quick mount feature you can swap monitors on the fly quickly and easily with no hassle. Up until now if you wanted to fly with a Crystal Sky and a tablet or phone it meant you had to bring several types of mounts out in the field with you, not anymore!

One nice feature that PolarPro included is the removable mounting plate that is attached to the tablet mount, this allows you to remove it and attach it to any smartphone or tablet mount that you wish. This makes the Flight Deck even more versatile. The PolarPro Flight Deck is compatible with Both the 5.5 inch and 7.85 inch Crystal Sky monitors and can be mounted in the DJI Mavic 2 series, Mavic Air and the Mavic Pro/Platinum. One feature that really makes the Flight Deck stand out from other mounts is the fact that you can adjust both the height and angle of the Crystal Sky, most mounts only allow you to adjust the angle. It has a small loop at the bottom for those who like to attach a lanyard to their remote. When attaching the Crystal Sky to the Flight Deck, no screwdrivers are needed. The flight deck used thumb screws that can even be attached to itself so they won’t get lost when not in use. The PolarPro Flight Deck also feature tapered edges that give the unit a much more natural feel when mounted in the controller. PolarPro states that other mounts will be introduced over time for devices such as smartphones and possibly extra large tablets, making the system even more adaptable.

PolarPro’s engineers did a fantastic job in the development of the Flight Deck, a quality build, and a truly useful product. I highly recommend the Flight Deck to anyone looking for a mount for their Crystal Sky or tablet.

PolarPro Extension Remote Sticks Review

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at the remote extension sticks by PolarPro for the DJI Mavic Air and DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom. When DJI introduced the original Mavic Pro they also introduced its new compact remote. In order to keep the remote small and portable, the control sticks were designed a little shorter than traditional remote sticks. This also rang true when DJI launched the DJI Spark, it also had a small remote and remote sticks. This became the new standard for DJI’s portable drones. When DJI Released the Mavic Air and the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom they stuck to the smaller remote sticks even though they could now be removed for even easier packing, this is most likely due to the fact that users are now accustomed to the shorter style remote sticks.

The problem with a shorter stick is that it does not give you the fine control as a longer stick, think back to science class and what you learned about levers. PolarPro has released an ingenious new stick for the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom and Mavic air. This new stick comes in the same size as the stock sticks from DJI but have the added feature of extending from .75 inch to 1.25 inches. This allows you to set the length to what you feel is best for you. When the sticks are collapsed they are the exact size of the original remote sicks and thus will stow away in the Mavic Air or Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom remote.

This is a great product for those who need nice precision controls when filming very specific shots with their DJI Drones. Watch our video review to see the PolarPro DJI Mavic Air/Mavic 2 remote extension sticks in action.
