The DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom are two amazing professional quality drones on the market. Here’s 10 must-have accessories for the Mavic 2 series that will enhance your experience.

Here is my review on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro

1. DJI Smart Controller

The DJI Smart Controller has a built in 5.5in 1080p screen with an ultra bright display so you can operate your drone in bright sunlight. The screen is about two times as bright as a standard phone screen. The Controller offers a Full HD video view transmission from the drone up to 10km (about .6 miles) away. It can easily be tucked away making it convenient for travel. The Smart controller also handles weather really well from -4°F to 104°F or -20°C to 40°C. The DJI Smart Controller has a DJI Go Share app to easily transfer your photos to your phone. The battery life is approx. two and a half hours long. The Controller even has a built in microphone and speaker so you can livestream your flights.

2. Mavic 2 pro and zoom Batteries

The Mavic Series Battery lasts about 20 to 30 min per battery. The drone only comes with one battery and that wont last you very long. I highly recommend purchasing a couple spare batteries you will thank my later. I personally have five of them and use all five when shooting for a couple projects in a day.

3. Mavic 2 series Car Charger

Since you already know the batteries do not last very long get yourself one of these handy car chargers. It can charge your batteries while you are traveling to your location. This is also great if you forget to charge your batteries ahead of time.

4. Mavic 2 waterproof Carying Case

This Mavic 2 Waterproof Hard Cover Case is perfect for protecting your drone during travel, on the jobsite, or if you forget the case on the back of your car and drive off with it flying into the road (talking from experience). My drone was returned to me safely undamaged.

5. ND Filters for MAVIC 2

Mavic 2 pro ND filters are perfect for preventing light from entering the camera. This allows you to have more control over the shutter speed and aperture settings. Simpler terms they are like sunglasses for your drone.

6. Mavic 2 Extended Landing Gear

Extended Landing Gear is amazing if you need to take off in a snowy, rocky, or grassy area. They attach to your drones arms to raise the drone up further off the ground. If you try to take off in a rocky area you will see the propellers will hit the rocks or grass if you do not have the extensions.

7. LOW NOISE Propellers for MAVIC 2

Low Noise Propellers are great for reducing the noise of your drone and do not cost you an arm and a leg.

8. Landing Pad For MAVIC 2 Pro and zoom

This inexpensive item will allow you to take off without stirring up a lot of dust and will give you a flat surface to take of on. I personally like the square landing pad more than the circle one since it is so much easier to put away and store.

9. DJI Care Refresh For MAVIC 2


DJI Care Refresh is a protection plan that offers accidental damage coverage for your DJI Mavic 2 drone. DJI Care Refresh (one year plan) includes up to two replacements in the first year. DJI Care Refresh (two year plan) includes up to three replacements in two years and extends the warranty up to two years from the date of your purchase.

10. Lume Cube Lighting Kit for Mavic 2

Light Cubes for your Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom are great for light painting photography and night time flying. These lights are lightweight, durable, with up to one and a half hours of flight time. 360° rotation will allow you to adjust the lights in any direction.

Bonus Accessory – DJI Mavic 2 Battery Charging Hub

This is one of the coolest accessories I own for my Mavic 2 Pro. It can charge three batteries, your phone, and the remote controller all at the same time. The original charger sold with the drone comes with the ability to charge four batteries but only one of them at a time. This charger drastically reduces the weight time for a full charge on all batteries!!!

Since the dawn of photography, photographers are restricted by exactly what they truly are capable of. Sometimes, photographers have fought with getting the most essential minutes as friends and family keep getting in the photo. When they were lucky, with some planning, they caught a good photo.

Further along in history, people started to take photos from airplanes and helicopters. Though this tech enhanced the capabilities of just exactly what exactly a photographer managed to accomplish, these certainly were very limiting: nobody would definitely be flying a helicopter 40 feet above a marriage service to catch an image, it might cost way too much and start to become considered a huge safety concern.

Now, though, because of the availability, cost, and simplicity of usage that drones provide, it is now reasonable to fly within a meeting that not long ago was nearly impossible. What exactly does this mean for the ordinary individual? Special events will be documented with the assistance of all drones; videos of festivals, weddings, and so on will contain an increasing number of shots out of the skies since drones continue to grow in popularity.
