One of the biggest drawbacks of the DJI Mavic Pro is that it sits so low to the ground.
Ok, it packs insanely small as a result, but taking off from the uneven ground or taller grass is a pain in the butt.
That is why you need to buy some landing gear for your Mavic!
Only yesterday I was out in a local park and the trail I wanted to land on was not suitable for the Mavic!
Now that you know why you need landing gear, which one should you buy?

There are a lot of choices when it comes to Mavic Pro landing gear because it is so damn easy to produce.
So, in this review, I am only going to cover the ones worthy of your attention.
Most of them simply attach to the front and rear legs (or body) of your Mavic Pro. Although there is also the option to prop up the rear of the body too.
The most popular landing gear on Amazon is the FSL Landing Gear.
Giving you a full 1-inch extra ground clearance, this is a welcome addition to the Mavic Pro’s height.
Super easy to attach and remove, the front gear attaches to the legs and the rear gear to the body.
Aside from the landing gear, you also get some little protector pads to stick on the bottom. This is not entirely necessary but adds a bit more absorption to the bottom for landing.
All in all, it’s a pretty simple piece of gear, and super easy to use. Also super small so will fit easily into whatever bag you choose for your Mavic.
Check out the video below to see them in action.
This set of Mavic Pro landing gear is also pretty affordable and simple to use. Not only does it raise your drone up off the ground, but it comes with a few extras as well.
There is a remote control protector, which is great because the Mavic Pro joysticks can get damaged in transport.
Also easy to pack away and carry in your Mavic Pro bag.
The guys at Polar Pro make some nice landing gear but quite a few reviewers complained of the back legs getting scratched because of the way the rear gear clips on. They do seem to give you more clearance though, so that is an option to consider.
Either of the two sets of landing gear will do the job of raising your Mavic off the ground (an inch or more) for peace of mind and easier landing.
Not only that, they are all under $10 bucks so you can hardly go wrong!
