This is the new mavic air 2, and i do plan on doing a follow up video when we’re allowed to leave the house again. Let’S, unbox, Music smell of fresh technology is something that i love Music that’s it. This drone kind of fell somewhere in between the mavic air and the mavic pro 2. as far as size. This is closer to the mavic pro. This controller is actually quite massive. It also doesn’t have an lcd on it, whereas most of the higher end drones do. I just pop this up and put our phone in it now that i kind of like let’s, see if it’s in our accessory box, so we’ve got a usbc, a charger adapter all the cables that we’ll need to connect our phone to the controller and our propellers. These are very clearly marked as to where to put them so there’s, a and b, and i root the stickers off. So if you did rip the stickers off, there are silver markings on the top of the propellers and that silver marking matches up on the top of where you’ll put the propeller. These are the b propellers and they’re black. How am i going to review this drone in my house? This is the mavic air 2, and this is the first time the dji is bringing some of their high end. Drone features to a mid range drone with the starting price of 7.99 you’ll get the drone a battery and the controller.
The controller features ocusync 2.0, which will allow you to get video transmission up to 10 kilometers and for us basic americans that’s over six miles. All right, let’s put this in here. I do kind of like the placement of this. I like that it’s above instead of below, like normally when you’re flying you’ll. Have your screen be here, matthew i’m, trying to do a drone review, but i like the placement above actually a lot better, all right, i’m gon na download the app update my drone and then i’m not gon na go outside and fly it i’m going to stay In the house it shoots up to 4k 60 video and up to 1080 240 frames, a second for some incredible slow mo. It also will shoot 8k hyperlapses hdr video and photos and up to 48 megapixel photos in one mode. It features all of our favorite dji, quick shots, hyper lapses, panos smart photos and, of course, focus track, spotlight, active track and points of interest. These are all things we’ve seen in previous dji drones, so it’s always great to see them back again and even better, with apas 3.0 obstacle avoidance. This will allow your drone to detect and avoid upcoming obstacles by flying over or around them. This drone will get up to 34 minutes of flight time, that’s the best flight time so far out of any of the mavic drones. This is dji’s first consumer drone that includes air sense technology.
It provides safety warnings to drone pilots that there’s other aircrafts nearby. Since the pandemic has created supply chain issues, that’s out of dji’s control, the mavic air 2 will initially be available in two versions: one with air sense receivers and one without since the faa has implemented the strongest requirements for airplanes and helicopters in the u.s. The airsense version will be sold here in the u.s and the non air sense version will be sold in other countries. I think the future of drone flying is going to be really interesting for us everyday consumers. There are a lot more restrictions of places that you can fly so be sure to check your flight maps before you head out, because there’s nothing worse than heading to a location that you think you’re gon na shoot and guess what you can’t fly there. So we’re outside can’t really fly this very far at all. Since i am in my backyard, i can’t go anywhere all the beaches are closed. All the parks are closed because of quarantine. So i’m gon na fly it a little bit in my backyard just to see how it flies. Maybe i can do a very short hyperlapse throughout the backyard and then i’ll fly it a little bit in the house. I do have some prop guards for it. So just in case i hit the walls or anything just in case i hit the walls for anything. I got ta turn obstacle avoidance off, so we can fly free, free, Music Applause.
Do you remember when i said i’m gon na turn obstacle avoidance off, and do you remember when i also was talking about the prop guards that i didn’t put on there’s a reason for that friends, because i now have got a hole inside of these? These gardens learn from my mistakes. This is this is bad behavior, and this is now i’m paying the price do Music. So i thought maybe we would test out some of the slow mo let’s try the 240 frames a second trying to get a slow mo hair. Flip Music, Music, so Music, ford in the house and i’m in the house board. Now what are you gon na do? Dude i don’t know this looks so good i’ve been flying the mavic mini for the past several months, so going back to a higher end. Drone looks so amazing. The mavic mini is so great because it is small, compact, it’s, extremely portable and very light, but if you really do want to get good quality 4k hdr video, you definitely do need to get a bigger drone. But this looks so amazing. I can’t wait to take it out. I wanted to show you guys a size comparison between the brand new mavic air 2 and the previous version of the mavic air. This was a really great little 4k drone. It had 21 minutes of flight time. You could shoot 60 frames a second at 2.7 k, but the biggest downfall was the wi fi transmission you’d only be able to get four kilometers at 720p, but with the new mavic air 2, you can get 10 kilometers at 1080p.
Now i’m testing 4k 60 on maddie come here. Maddie come here: buddy i’ve been flying dji drones for quite a while now and it’s, been interesting to kind of lay these all out and do some side by side comparisons, here’s, the mavic air, the mavic pro 2 and the mavic mini i’ve done unboxings and reviews On all of these drones in the past, if you guys want to check those out feel free to check the links in the description most recently, i’ve been traveling and using the mavic mini the most because it’s so small and portable, even though it doesn’t shoot 4k. The footage still looks really good and the fact that it’s, so small there’s, no excuse why i don’t always have it with me. The mavic mini has been geared towards beginners, but the fact that it doesn’t have obstacle avoidance. This might not be the best drone for somebody who is just starting out if you are looking for an inexpensive drone. Yes, mavic mini is perfect, but if you want that confidence of having obstacle avoidance, mavic air 2 might put your mind at ease when you’re out flying. Thank you guys for watching jenna’s actually outside flying her drone right now, i’m gon na put a link in the description. If you guys want to check out this drone and get more information or if you want to purchase one. I know this review is not one of my typical drone reviews, so i look forward to further covering this in a later video but in the meantime, definitely put prop guards on.
