. As with the mavic air 2, the air 2s is available in two kits the standard kit, with just the drone, the remote and the battery for 899 pounds in the uk. The flywheel combo is also available. Adding an extra two batteries. A charging hub carry bag. Nd filters and more accessories priced at 11.69, you can buy the combo accessories separately with batteries retailing at 105 pounds each the nd filter kit with 4 8, 16 og 32 filters 75 Pounds, the shoulder bag 69 pounds and the charging hub 49 pound. There is a link to all of these in the description as the batteries from my existing mavic air 2 fly more combo work with the new air 2s. I decided this time to just get the basic drone kit. The new version is an evolution of the mavic air 2 and continues dji’s. Recent trend started with the new mini 2 to drop the mavic name to become the dji air 2s visually. The drone looks very similar with only subtle changes to the front casing, to accommodate the extra sensors other than this and the new orange tips on the propellers. That appears to be the extent of the external changes. I think the extra two sensors at the front end give the drone the look of a porsche 911. Let me know in the comments: do you think it looks like a porsche 911? The air 2s is heavier weighing in with a takeoff weight of 595 grams compared with 570 grams on the mavic air 2.
. Much of the extra weight comes in the extra obstacle, sensors and the larger camera and gimbal. This has had an effect on flight time, which was reduced from 33 til 34 minutes to 30 til 31, but in reality, as i rarely let the battery get that low i’ve not noticed this in real life flying as mentioned, the air 2s now has extra front Obstacle, sensors, having eight in total four at the front two at the rear and two on the base, the new front sensors are upward facing, but in addition, when the drone is flying forwards, they help with the forward sensing at higher speeds. Although it is worth noting that in sport mode, these are disabled, another new addition to the drone is the addition of air sense with the adsb receiver. This was first seen in the uk on the fpv and gives the air 2 the ability to detect and warn you of manned aircraft in the area. When your drone detects a manned aircraft, you will see a warning in the app to say man, aircraft nearby and the map in the bottom left corner will flash orange. If the manned aircraft is in the view of the map, it will show as an aircraft icon. If not simply click the map to maximize it and it will automatically zoom to show you the location of the manned aircraft, thanks to billy coyle, for the footage of air sense, a link to his channel is in the description.
His channel is worth a subscription for great content. Give him a look the controller for the air 2 s is the same as the one for the mavic air 2. With a few small changes, the home button now features a pause. Icon. Tripod mode has been replaced with cine and the icons are now green, not white. Faktisk, it is exactly the same controller that comes with the dji mini 2.. The air 2s also features the updated version of ocusync from the fpv. 03 short for occusync 3.0 gives the air 2s a theoretical range of 8 til 12 kilometers in the uk. The drone laws mean we need to maintain visual line of sight of the drone at all times, so this range is a bit meaningless. Imidlertid, the signal is stronger and i’ve noticed an improvement compared to the mavic air 2 when flying in built up areas. So let’s look at the main reason you would change from a mavic air 2 to the new air 2s, its new camera. The new camera features a 1 inch cmos sensor with 20 megapixels. It has a field of view of 88 degrees with a fixed aperture of f 2.8. It also has a shooting range of 0.6 meters to infinity a new 10 bit d. Log m video mode has been added to the air 2 s which improves upon the previous version of d cinelog, which was on the air 2.. This allows for improved post editing software such as adobe premiere pro compared to the 48 megapixels on the air 2.
The air 2s has a lower 20 megapixelkamera, but with a larger sensor, the difference in real life really isn’t that much as before the camera shoots in jpeg by default, but will allow photos to be taken in raw which make editing in photoshop easier due to The expanded range in the picture, another big improvement, comes when you start to record video in addition to the existing full hd 1080 op til 120 billeder pr. sekund 2.7 k up to 60 frames per second and ultra hd 4k, at up to 60 billeder pr. sekund, You now get a new 5.4 k at 24, 25 og 30 billeder pr. sekund. This new 5.4k mode creates some stunning footage, men, for amateurs like me, when editing in premiere pro don’t forget to use the media encoder to export the footage, as the high resolution is too much to export straight from premiere pro. This is an example of four times. Zoom in 4k, 30 billeder pr. sekund, the dji fly app has also been updated to accommodate the air 2s and now features a new master shot mode. In addition to the usual quick shots, master shot is a new autonomous flight mode. All you need to do is focus on the area you want to film. The drone will then fly a selection of quick shots and the app will stitch them together into a short video using various templates available. The original footage is also available. Should you not like the one the app creates, you can make your own version.
This is an example of master shot mode, filming a chill bolton observatory in hampshire. The active track mode has also been updated. With the new version 4 rådighed. I plan to create some content in the future, using quick shots, master shot and also active track. So please subscribe to my channel to be notified when these are uploaded. Så, in summary, the air 2s is an evolution of the already excellent mavica 2 featuring a much improved camera with a one inch sensor: air sense, ocusync 3 master, shot and improved active track. If you’re looking for a hobby drone, which is more than capable of taking professional quality, photos and videos, this drone should be on your shopping list. It builds on what came before and gives the mavic 2 and mavic pro a run for their money.
