DJI Mavic Air 2 | Best Drone in 2021 | 6 Reasons Why
So, as you guys just seen the actual footage that i just took right, there that’s not color graded at all. I just wanted you guys to see what cuts coming straight out the camera um. Just to give you an idea how good the quality is, i did record in 4k 30 frames per second uh. It is on auto mode i’m gon na go over six reasons why the mavic air 2 is the best bang for your bucks, not including the price right 800 for the kit, a thousand for the fly mark combo. It comes with a bunch of extras, but to go back into the six reasons why i want to start off with actual uh the video. The video quality for me was a big thing: uh having 4k 60 frames per second, and not to mention the 40 megapixel camera that you can get for aero footage, which is amazing, the actual video itself, it’s actually really good. In my opinion, none of the other drones on the mavic lineup are better than this, not even the mavic pro, which is the one i currently have that i upgraded from so i got the mavic air 2 from the mavic pro uh. So, for me, none of these other drones that we, the dji offers, are better than it. The only one that is better, of course, would be the mavic pro 2 but i’m, not going to count that one so, like i said, video card is going to be great.
The increased lifetime, which is 34 minutes based on the dji website. However, in real world testing, i’ve noticed that i’ll get on really reality like 23 to 26 minutes of solid flight time, considering the windy conditions being fair if the conditions are worse, we’re – probably going to get realistically around 20 minutes. Third reason would be focus track right. Whether it’s active track, whether it’s, follow or parallel it’s great for hiking following a subject like a car, someone biking, any active sports are going to be great for this type of scenario. You’Re going to get also the point of interest where you focus on a subject. You can move the actual drone around and the camera will stay on that subject, which is really good. Now before i had to do it with the mavic pro, and i had to do it manually because the system that it was using it wasn’t the best and then the fourth thing would be the ocusync right on the ocusync. I would say: you’re gon na get an improved radio transmission, you’re gon na get less weak signals or notifications from the actual drone telling you hey. Your signal is weak connection failure. I it did happen every so often with the mavic. Pro fifth reason was a fly. Smarter obstacle avoidance um having the sensors in all over the actual drone, the front, the bottom, the rear, the mavic pro that i’m, comparing to that, i have is just in the front and the bottom.
So, for me that was a big selling point and the main one that i was a welcome surprise, which was the controller i didn’t think it was one of the reasons i bought it, but i ended up liking it a lot, the mavic air 2 controller. It has a spring where you just pull up you slide in your phone. I have the 12 from act as a comparison and it’s really wide. So you slide it in. I can leave the case on the lightning. Cable is already pretty much hidden within the controller. Pull it out plug it in you’re, good to go and one of the plus size under the settings. You can actually have the controller charge your phone while you’re using it so that’s, just a plus um, but if we compare it to the mavic pro and the mavic pro 2 controller, which is pretty much the same exact one you have to take off the case Slide in the phone um now for most people, that’s not a big deal, but for me uh i get anxiety just taking off the case. You know just being an expensive device. You don’t want to drop it right, but you’re cutting down on the time that you put it on the actual controller, with the mavic air ii, um you’re getting an improved signal in general. So those are the main reasons for me now. If you compare this to every drone out there, the flight time alone is the big one uh.
The 4k 60 frames per second is a big one for most people, the 8k hyperlapse, which is another one, just to throw it in there. But these are the reasons that i came up. I did my research on a lot of the drones that, for me this is the big best bang for your buck for 800 bucks. You can’t beat that now. If money is not an issue for you, then just go straight for the mavic pro 2.. I think it’s, a great drone you’re, going to get a one inch sensor versus pretty much a half inch better colors you’re, going to get more dynamic range, it’s going to be a better overall uh, drone and camera. After that, the mavic air 2 wins beats. All of them, in my opinion, um, if you did like this video, please hit the like button. It really helps me out if you guys want to see the in depth review of me going into the focus track system that the mavic air 2 has of me going in a hiking trail.
