Over the past few years, he discovered a new love (and hidden talent) for aerial photography. After watching some drone footage on YouTube, he soon realised the “need” to have his own drone and the rest, as they say, is history.
When it came down to deciding which drone to buy, he could choose between these drones: the DJI Phantom 4, DJI Mavic, GoPro Karma and DJI Spark.
The Phantom 4 may be the obvious choice for a professional photographer, but it is too big for Gunther. The thought of his two busy boys and that drone in one car just wasn’t practical at all. He briefly considered the DJI Spark, but regards it as more of a “selfie-drone”. He needs a drone with more power. And, being a GoPro fan, he naturally considered the Karma but, it too didn’t tick all of the boxes.
The DJI Mavic Pro was the only drone to pass the test: It’s foldable and extremely portable, has a 24-minute flight time and ActiveTrack feature, making it easy to fly.
