The highlight of the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is its more stealth approach and the less disruptive noise it makes. Listening to a drone approach you ftom above can be quite annoying, which prompted DJI to make this drone that is both portable and feature packed.
Compared to the DJI Mavic Pro, it has a softer silver finish as opposed to the former darker grey colour. What makes the difference in the noise made by the drone in-flight as result of the redesign rotor blade.

Design and Build
Basically, the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum looks like the ordinary Mavic Pro version except for the modification to rotor designs and slightly different finish. Although the drone is quite portable it is not as portable as some of DJI other smaller models.
However, it does cram a lot of features into its sizeable body which makes it qualify to an extent for professional use. With its foldable arms, the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is easier to carry and fits easily into a camera bag or something close.
In comparison to its predecessor, the drone gives more flight time which can come in handy when all you need is a few minutes to wrap things up. According to DJI, the drone should be up for 30 minutes as opposed to the 23 minutes flight time of the normal Mavic Pro.
You also get a forward obstacle avoidance system with a return back to home feature which brings the drone back to the point where it started flight when the battery is low or connection is broken.
The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum collects data from GPS and GLONASS satellites to detect your location in outdoor flights. Flying behind close doors is possible aided by the downward facing sensors to detect floor pattern.
Taking a page from its predecessors note, the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum has a white and black LCD screen remote controller showing some information like battery level, connection status amongst others.
On the surface, you will see two control sticks used for controlling flight. There are also buttons used for pause, power, return to home and so on. You also have adjustable clips to hold different size of smartphones which is connected through cable to the remote controller.
Although, the drone can be operated without a smartphone, however, you will not get a first person view through the camera. For that you would have to install the DJI Go 4 app supporting only Android 4.4 or higher and iOS 9.0 upwards. An added advantage of using the smartphone is that you have access to control the video and image features.
Image and Video Quality
Optics are very impressive stabilized by the three axis gimbal with crisp video recording up to 4K resolution at 60Mbps. Also, the DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is capable of taking clear pictures in both portrait and landscape mode with a 12MP sensor.
You could decide to record 4K video at 30fps or in cinema mode a 24fps or 1080p video at 60fps or 96fps and 720p video at 180fps although it doesn’t record sound with it.
