The DJI Mavic Air

What I love about the Mavic Air is that you get so much from such a small drone. The drone is light weight, portable and affordable. I got the Mavic Air for my run and gun situations, where I needed to get the shots in a small amount of time and didn’t want to spend that time setting up a bigger drone. The Mavic Air fits right in my camera bag, so I can just grab one bag and go. The Mavic Air did have some stabilization issues in high windy areas, but still performed like a boss. If you were looking for a starter drone, or wanted to upgrade from your current spark or Mavic Pro, then I would highly recommend getting the Mavic Air. If you have the extra cash to spare, Then I would recommend getting the fly more combo. I would have kicked myself If I didn’t get the fly more combo, In the long run you save so much money then you would have if you had brought everything individually.

Mavic Air Information


Inside the Mavic’s pocket-sized remote controller is DJI’s brand new OcuSync transmission technology, with a range of 4.3mi (7km)*, HD 720p long range and Full HD 1080p short range video streaming.

*Unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant.


An unprotected drone could hit obstacles during long distance flight or when descending from an inadequate height in Return to Home mode. The Mavic uses FlightAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away and allows the Mavic to bypass them or brake to hover, reducing accidents.


Satellite positioning can only help a drone hover in an unobstructed outdoor area free of interference. Without satellites, the drone will not be able to position and become susceptible to drifting. However, with forward and downward vision sensors, the Mavic can hover precisely indoors or in places without GPS.


The Mavic is only 1/6th the size of the Phantom 4 but this reduction in size doesn’t mean a reduction in flight time. The Mavic actually flies much longer than you would expect from its compact size. It is capable of reaching an absolute maximum flight time of 27 minutes and a maximum distance of 8mi (13km) due to its powerful, high-efficiency motors.


The Mavic is the only drone of its size to carry an integrated high-precision 3-axis mechanical camera stabilization system, giving you crystal clear photos and smooth videos, without losing a single pixel.


Mavic supports 4K video at 30fps. No Electronic Image Stabilization is used, ensuring all footage is 4K. We have created a miniaturized, ultra-precise 3-axis gimbal for the Mavic, capable of stabilizing the camera even during high-speed motion for smooth video and sharp photos.

DJI Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Battery

Enhance your flight time by stocking up on some extra batteries for your Mavic Air. led indicators let you know how much battery life is left. Get up to 21 minutes of flight time with each battery. There’s nothing worse than pulling out your drone and discovering that you don’t have enough battery life left to get the shots you need before the battery fails and your drone comes crashing back to earth, or worse.
