Following last week’s GoPro event that saw the release of the new Karma drone and HERO5 action camera, eyes around the industry turned to DJI for a response. This morning, it took to the stage to unveil its new Mavic Pro. Built around DJI’s industry-leading technology, it has a foldable design that still maintains many of the features we’ve come to love from the Phantom line.

In fact, the Mavic Pro is now more powerful than its older siblings in some areas. Most notable is an impressive 4.3-mile maximum range. That bests the Phantom 4 by over 25% while still streaming 1080p video. Specs include full 4K video at 30fps and 1080p at 96fps. It has support for RAW files and everything is captured via a 78-degree built-in optics system. The Mavic Pro tops out at 40 miles per hour in the sky, nearly matching the Phantom 4. Like GoPro’s Karma, it has a foldable design and an included remote that still requires a smartphone although it can carry out missions via the app thanks to built-in sensors.

DJI is listing its latest creation at $729 (without the remote) or $999 as a full kit.
