Mavic Pro Unboxing DJI's Compact Drone
The new DJI Mavic Pro has revolutionized the drone industry. Up until now, the Phantom-class drone was as portable as you could get for good 4K Video and 12MP stills. The Mavic Pro changes this. Today we get to Unbox the Mavic Pro.

Mavic with front propellers and spare propellers laid out
Front propellers matched up with color coded motor hub. Note the motor on the left side of the picture has 3 white stripes on the edge of the motor's cans. The propeller with the white circle in the middle of the propeller hub goes on the motor with the white markings. The opposite motor seen on the right side of the photo, without stripes receives a matching propeller without any markings.
Striped motor with matching propeller
Propeller placed on top of the spring loaded motor shaft.
You install the propellers by pushing down with a little force to compress the spring, then rotate until the propeller doesn't spin further onto the motor. Releasing the propeller will lock it in place. If the propeller pops back up, twist the propeller into the other direction after pushing down on it.
