Footnotes These specs have been determined through tests conducted with the latest firmware. Firmware updates can enhance performance, so updating to the latest firmware is highly recommended.


Upgrades in more detail

The Mavic Air 2 drone delivers a number of significant updates over the previous model, perhaps most notably the new Quad Bayer image sensor, updated battery with improved flying times. There are also several advanced software features and let’s not forget the new controller which is also a very welcome ergonomic addition. The new sensor is a highly capable upgrade, which is both larger and has better light recording capabilities. HDR when done right can really help with taking images in wide dynamic ranges and the Air 2 performs HDR admirably for both video and stills images.

Enjoying coffee whilst flying!


Flight times are always a consideration for drone flying and this new model boasts a significant improvement over its’ predecessor. This means pilots can now fly for up to 34 minutes on a single battery charge, up from 21 minutes. This presents new opportunities for staying in the air longer in order to capture the footage you really want. What’s more, this model will fly up to 10km at blistering speeds of up to 68.4 km/h.

If you opt for the Fly More kit, you get three batteries for over 1.5 hours of flight time and a set of ND filters for brighter weather. The Combo also includes spare propellors and carry case, along with a triple charger and USB charger for the ultimate versatility.

Software improvements include the DJI Fly App as well as a range of safety features, easier flight patterns and quick editing updates. Here is a summary of software enhancements;


  • FocusTrack
  • Active Track 3.0
  • Spotlight
  • Point of Interest 3.0
  • OcuSync 2.0.


Together these provide improved collision avoidance, better subject tracking, easy flight paths. All pilots now have the ability to capture stunning footage with a range of Free, Circle, Course Lock, and Waypoint modes. OcuSync 2.0 can transmit video up to 10 km and can also deliver 1080p FHD resolution live stream directly from the drone’s camera.

You can see more details and order the standalone drone here or the Fly More Combo pack here.
