The mavic air 2 looks like a smaller mavic 2 pro and a bigger mavic mini it’s, also slightly bigger than the first mavic air, but it remains portable and easy to store in your backpack or a camera bag. I prefer the look of the first air. It was a bit smaller, had a shorter wingspan and came in three colors. It was simply a more fun design. Samlede, the grey housing on the mavic line is boring, but it fits better within dji’s. Current lineup dji fpv drone made of mostly plastic, including the arms lending legs, and just about everything else, which really surprised me. Since the entire fpv community uses carbon fiber frames from what i could tell, the only metal parts are one spot under the canopy and some of the electronics. It feels solid in hand, but that is mainly because the battery adds weight and support to the rest of the frame. Speaking of weight, the fpv tips the scales at 795 gram, which is on the heavy side compared to most fpv drones of this size. The battery weighs 250 grams by itself camera. The thing most people will care about is that the mavic air now has a bigger half inch sensor, capable of shooting 4k 60fps video and 12 og 48 megapixel images in terms of video. The mavic air 2 comes with significant upgrades over its predecessor.
It can film 4k 60fps with a 120 megabits per second victory, which even beats the flagship mavic 2 pro. It can record slow mo footage up to 240 fps at 1080p resolution, and you can film in three color modes standard chain like and hdr i’m, usually not the biggest fan of hdr. It used to be this over saturated mess, but fortunately dji got it right. This time it adds more saturation overall, but it doesn’t push it to the point where it looks unrealistic. The fpv shares the same half point three inch sensor as the four hundred fifty dollars mini two, which is mostly a good thing. It won’t match the capabilities of dji’s, more advanced photo and video focus drones. Imidlertid, the fpv’s camera performs well in daylight but starts showing its downsides in darker environments by muddying details with lots of noise. The fpv can film 4k at 60fps instead of the 24fps on the mini 2, perfect for slowing down footage for those thrilling, close calls, and if you want it even slower, you can also shoot up to 120fps. At 1080p controller. The mavic air 2 almost twice the size of any other dji controller, excluding the optional 749 dollar, smart controller, it doesn’t have a screen and there are no visible antennas sticking out. The phone holder is moved to the top and is spring loaded. I think the whole design makes a lot more sense, it’s much more comfortable to hold too.
If i were to nitpick. My only wish is for the custom function buttons to be at the bottom of the controller instead of on the side. Dji’S fpv new controller is about half the size of other standard. Fpv controllers. Dji has also developed an optional 199 dollars motion controller. I am more comfortable with a standard controller at this point, but the motion controller could be a great option for beginners. There is one very annoying thing about both controllers and it’s that neither charge with usb c to usb c cables, just usb 8 to usb c it’s, infuriating flight time and battery in mavic air 2. I didn’t get the full 34 minutes of flight time on a battery charge. The longest flight i had was 28 minutes in typically windy san francisco conditions. The rest of my flights would average around 25 minutter, which is still better than the 20 minutter. I average in the mother 2 pro as good as the battery life is having to wait almost two hours for it to charge before i can fly it again. Isn’T ideal you’ll definitely want to invest in a few backup batteries. If you plan on using the air 2 for more than just a few minutes at a time, the dji fpv drone is slightly heavier than most fpv drones due to its hefty battery. That battery is also a big selling point for dji, as it enables 20 minute flight times if you’re used to mavics, phantoms or parrots, this would be considered short, but compared to fpv drones.
This is a significant upgrade from typical flight time, which varies from three minutes from miniature drones to around 10 minutes for larger fpvs it’s, also dji’s intelligent battery, meaning it discharges after a few days when not in use to maximize its lifespan and avoid swelling hope.
