Why I Created Mavic Guides
There was also a time when I was a beginner. Therefore, I am well aware of the growing pains and know how difficult it can sometimes be to learn something completely new.

You can even fold up their arms and put them in your backpack with ease.
Now, with that out of the way let’s delve a little deeper and explore the world of DJI Mavic drones aka Mavic Drones.

You can ask anyone who is into drone photography how important it is to have an organizational system for your videos and photos. The pain you have to go through when trying to find an image you captured a while ago is unbearable. In order to keep you from this pain, I have created this section where you will find the complete drone guide on how to store your images and videos correctly.
There are many ways you can store your DJI Mavic drone images. You can use the internal drone storage, you can use SD cards, you can choose a DJI CineSSD for the DJI Inspire 2, you can use a normal external hard drive, or you can jump out and get a LaCie DJI Copilot.
There is also the option to store everything in cloud-based storage. All these storage methods have their advantages and disadvantages; it all depends on what your needs are, so it may be worth combining solutions for the best results. In this section, I will try to give you a comprehensive drone guide on which method would work best for you.
