This foldable, pocket-portable drone was designed with travelers and outdoor enthusiasts in mind. It features a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera with a 1.2/3" CMOS sensor that shoots 12MP stills and is capable of capturing 4K video at 30 fps that it can transfer at speeds up to 100 Mb/s or store on its 8GB of internal storage.
In terms of performance, the Mavic Air offers multiple flight modes, can reach a top speed of up to 43 mph, and offers a max flight time of up to 21 minutes. For safety and security, the Mavic Air uses an advanced flight control system that draws on several sophisticated technologies, including Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) and Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS), to locate itself in 3D space, detect objects, and avoid collisions.
The Mavic Air works in tandem with DJI's GO 4 mobile app for accessing settings, getting a telemetry readout, viewing a low-latency video feed, as well as more advanced features, such as accessing QuickShots, ActiveTrack, and more. In addition to traditional joystick style controls, you can fly the Mavic with simple tap-based commands or using specific hand gestures.
In addition to the contents included with the standard Mavic Air, this Fly More Combo includes additional batteries, a shoulder bag, battery hub, and more.

The DJI Mavic Air doesn’t feature electronic image stabilisation to enable the high-quality 4K video performance. Instead it features a 3-axis gimbal to stabilise the camera during flight and deliver ultra-precise images and smooth video footage. With the angular vibration range reduced to 0.005°, you can trust the Mavic Air will capture wonderfully smooth and clear imagery.
The Mavic Air features a new enhanced Wi-Fi video transmission so that you can stay connected and always have a better signal between your drone and control. It supports dual frequency bands of 2.4/5.8GHz and a 720p live view within a 4km range.
While it’s only 430grams, the Mavic Air performs and remains stable in wind speeds of up to 10m/s. It has undergone rigorous testing to ensure safety and reliability and features the latest DJI technology to enable precise hovering in strong winds.
Yes, the Mavic Air can be used by beginners willing to have a go and learn how to navigate the controls. The drone features many intelligent features that make flying both safe and fun, including the improved Return To Home (RTH) function that ensure the drone flies back to Home Point in case signal is lost.
The main differences are that the Mavic Air is lighter, more portable, faster and cheaper. In terms of features, the Mavic Air also flaunts more Quickshot modes (including Boomerage and Spherical Panorama) and more gesture modes. It also has more onboard storage with 8GB, but has slightly less flight time with six minutes less than the Mavic Pro.
