Everyone remembers the DJI Mavic Pro. At the time of its launch, there simply wasn’t a drone like it in the market. I mean, yeah there was technically the GoPro Karma, but I’d argue that even that drone is nowhere near as polished as the Mavic Pro.
Not only did the Mavic fold smaller, it also flew better and had all of DJI’s excellent intelligent flight systems and computer vision — it was much better as a standalone product. Meanwhile, the Karma was designed to fit into GoPro’s ecosystem — and I have to say they did a good job there — leveraging the company’s existing action cameras while also adding a touch of modularity with the Karma Grip. At least they were doing a good job, until Karmas started falling out of the sky.
So, I’d argue that the Mavic Pro was definitely in a class of its own. And when you’ve got such a game-changing device, the question becomes: How do you follow it up? Well, DJI thinks the way forward to is to have two versions of the Mavic 2.

The DJI Mavic Air is now officially available in Malaysia and it retails for RM3,499 for the standalone kit and RM4,299 for the Fly More Combo. If you’re looking for a cheaper deal, you can now get the Fly More combo for less than RM3,800, which is more than RM500 off its recommended price tag.
The DJI Spark is getting more affordable in Malaysia. Just last week, we spotted an offer for a standalone Spark that’s going for as low as RM1,720. Now you can get one at an even lower price and it even comes with 6 months of extended warranty that’s worth RM300.
Looking for a drone that’s super easy to fly? The DJI Spark is a great way to get started and you don’t even need the remote to operate its basic functions. It’s even smaller than the DJI Mavic Pro, making it more practical to carry a drone around. For those who have been eyeing one for a long time, now is probably the best time to grab one as you can get an official DJI Malaysia unit at over RM500 off.
The DJI Mavic Pro is one of the best compact drones you can get right now. At IFA 2017, DJI has announced a newer version that’s called the Mavic Pro Platinum. It still has the same foldable form factor and a 4K camera connected to a 3-axis gimbal but now it flies longer in the air with less noise.
We love our DJI Spark drone because there are lots to like about it. From stuff like its ultra-portable size, its flying prowess, image quality and even the stability of its mechanical gimbal, the Spark is a great entry-level drone.
However, if you think that DJI was able to produce something this small and affordable without at least some limitations, you’re kidding yourself. After spending some time with the Spark, here are five big things we learned that we think you should know about before you think of buying one for yourself.
“Now everyone can fly” was the line that stuck with me the most after DJI launched the Spark in Malaysia. Ignoring the obvious reference to a popular budget airline’s tag, “everyone can fly” is probably the best way to describe what DJI’s Spark can do. It’s an amazingly tiny drone that takes almost no effort to get up in the air.
Drones are taking over the world. As these flying gadgets get more and more accessible, more people are picking one up to have a go at aerial photography themselves.
If you aren’t one of those people but have always wanted to give drones a try, there’s good news! DJI’s smallest (and most beginner-friendly) drone, the DJI Spark, is officially coming to Malaysia very soon.
UPDATE: DJI Spark from authorised DJI distributor is now available for pre-order. Priced at RM2,288.
Can’t wait to get your hands on the DJI Spark? DJI’s smallest new drone is now available in Malaysia and you can pick one up today while stocks last.
