There are boatloads of great Mavic Pro accessories, but some are way more useful and important than others.
In this post I am going to break down all the accessories I believe can really improve your Mavic Pro flying experience.
The post is broken down into sections which you can jump to in the Quick Navigation on the side.
Sure, you get a 16Gig card with your Mavic Pro when you buy it, but you are going to want either a larger one or a few more sd cards.
Why? Because you will want to be working on one, while the other is in the Mavic. Or you may want to keep some footage safe, while you are flying or traveling. There are lots of reasons. The maximum capacity of the Mavic is technically 64G.
The best two micro sd cards that I have come across are the:

It pays to have at least one spare battery for your Mavic Pro, because 26 minutes flight time is never enough, right?
But even if you have a few batteries, you always have to charge them. And the charger you get with the Mavic can only charge one battery at a time. And it takes way too long!
Here are a few options for battery chargers for the Mavic Pro.
Sequential Battery Chargers (one after another)
Parallel Battery Chargers (at the same time)
ND Filters are a great way to get even better video footage on the Mavic Pro. They help to reduce the light entering the lens so that you can align the shutter and frame rates (long version short: way better video footage).
There are lots of options for ND filters but some fit better than others, and the best ones don't disrupt the gimbal calibration when you start the drone. You can read all about it in detail in this post.
But if you just want my recommendations, here is the list:
The Mavic Pro is an ultra-low profile drone, and you might have noticed that it has trouble landing and taking off when there is any kind of obstacle (grass, rocks etc). That is where some nice (and usually cheap) landing gear comes in:
Using a big phone or tablet with your Mavic Pro controller is the perfect way to get a better view of the camera (don't you hate trying to see what the small phone is showing - or not showing).
And if you want to get the perfect view of your tablet/phone and get it out of the way of the controller sticks/buttons a holder is the best solution. Here are some great options:
Packing and carrying all your great Mavic Pro gear is a bit of a chore, but with the right bag or case it can all become super easy.
There are lots of options from simple cases for the drone itself, to all in one bags for everything you probably have for your drone. Check a few of them out below or read the complete review:
LiPo batteries can be dangerous when you travel or fly. Keep safe with these fireproof bags for your Mavic Pro batteries.
Landing the Mavic can be a bit dicey when the ground is not "perfect" This simple and cost effective solution will solve nearly all your take off and landing problems.
The sticks on the Mavic Pro remote controller may get damaged in transport. Even if you have a good case or bag. Protect your remote with this transport bracket.
Tired of not being able to see your phone screen when flying your Mavic?
DJI have come out with the ultimate in drone screens with the CrystalSky.
All Mavics look the same. Kinda boring, huh?
Well, if you want to make your drone stand out (or just easier to see when it's up in the air) why not add some decals or stickers. There are so many different options, and most of them are super cheap.
Want to fly even more?
The fly more combo is one of the best packages you can get when you first buy your Mavic Pro.
