The new DJI Mavic Air 2 is a magnificent technical feat, an extraordinarily competent drone that appears to be the last flying camera most people will ever need. With front, downward, and rear-facing distance sensors, the drone can recognise impediments and not only warn the pilot, but also calculate a course to avoid, say, a wall or a tree, if necessary.
This drone has a significantly longer flight time (an astonishing 34 minutes) and a greater range than the original Mavic Air. The new 4K 60fps camera, with a 48 megapixel half-inch sensor, is the major draw for photographers and videographers.
This drone receives a fully redesigned controller, which we appreciate – your smartphone slots in above the controllers, much as on top-tier drones.
As with other DJI drones, an additional “fly more” pack is available, which bundles items you truly need (case, spare batteries) – this costs more, of course, but is frequently a good investment.
