The Zerotech Hunter bears a strikingly strong resemblance to the well-known DJI Mavic Pro. Apparently, Zerotech’s design team was so “creative” they thought, “Why bother making something original when we can just copy the Mavic?” This is actually the second case of a competitor copying the DJI Mavic Pro. Walkera, well known for “borrowing” DJI’s designs, released the Vitus at CES 2017. That drone was some kind of Inspire 2 and Mavic Pro offspring.
Zerotech Hunter Hunts the Mavic?
Before we elaborate, check out this side-by-side comparison of the Hunter and the Mavic:
Not much else to say here. Zerotech might want to start preparing for a patent infringement lawsuit, like the one DJI filed against Yuneec.
According to SB-DJI, a Chinese drone blog, the Zerotech Hunter will have a fight time of about 15 minutes and flight range of 1.5km (4500ft). Unfortunately, we don’t yet know what this drone’s remote controller is going to look like or whether or not it will come with a gimbal camera. Obviously, if the Hunter relies on digital image stabilization and has no gimbal, this drone will be classified as an expensive toy. But if Zerotech adds a tiny 3-axis gimbal to it, it might become the first real Mavic competitor on the market.
