DJI drones are stronger than they look. We Talk UAV tied a string between two different drones and let them run in opposite directions to create a drone tug of war! What is the point of this dangerous game? It is merely to test a DJI drone’s strength, and it also highlights a drone’s towing capability. To add some suspense, the proving ground was situated at a beach full of rocks. If you are interested in watching a toe to toe tug of war battle between the likes of a DJI Spark and a DJI Mavic, then watch this We Talk UAV exclusive video:
DJI Mavic vs. DJI Spark
The DJI Spark is one little powerhouse of a drone, but it is no match to its bigger brother. The DJI Mavic held its ground while the DJI Spark found little success in pulling the larger drone.
DJI Mavic vs. DJI Phantom 4 Professional
The consumer popular DJI Phantom 4 Professional weights 3.06 lbs. with a battery and propellers, and the DJI Mavic only weights 1.62 lbs. with a battery and propellers. The DJI Phantom 4 Professional can be seen towing a Mavic with ease, but the surprising twist was that the Mavic held its ground against a drone that is nearly double its weight! Even though the Phantom 4 Professional was stronger, the DJI Mavic barely lost its footing against the much larger drone.
DJI Inspire 2 vs. DJI Phantom 4 Professional
This last DJI drone tug of war test was between an Inspire 2 and a DJI Phantom 4 Professional. This is a no-brainer since the Inspire 2 is a higher end drone which can go as fast as 58 mph. The much larger Inspire 2 pulled the DJI Phantom 4 Professional with ease; just check the angle of the DJI Phantom 4 Professional on the other end of the rope!
Pound for Pound Winner
The pound for pound drone tug of war winner has to go the DJI Mavic Pro. Most drones can only carry a portion of its weight. At only 1.62 lbs, the DJI Mavic can literally pull its own weight. Just check this YouTube video where a DJI Mavic saves another DJI Mavic:
Drone Tug Of War: DO NOT TRY THIS!
As fun as it looks, drone tug of war is a dangerous game to play. Most of these drones are matched up according to similar sizes. Just imagine the disaster scenario where a DJI Inspire 2 is matched up against a DJI Spark! Not only are burning out motors a highly probable problem, but losing a drone in a tug of war battle is a great possibility. Save yourself the trouble and let We Talk UAV handle these kinds of tests!
