DJI Mavic Air 2 Review

DJI Mavic Air 2 Review

The Mavic Air 2 is the standout model within DJI’s Mavic Air series, known for its compact and foldable design. It can be carried in most cameras’ pouches because of its design, and it doesn’t compromise security measures. The Mavic Air 2 is DJI’s youngest child in the commercial drone line, sitting between the Mavic Mini, which is lighter in weight but less powerful, and the Mavic 2, which is more strong and capable but also more pricy. Its camera has a Four Rear design that provides clear, high-resolution images and 4K HDR film with silky soft video. 


The Mavic Air 2 drone can fly at 42 miles and for up to 34 minutes, which is three minutes extra than its previous. It also offers a longer distance of 10 kilometers, opposed to only 4 kilometers on its previous, and a significantly longer battery life.

Design & Control:

Picture quality, efficiency, and flying time have all improved as a result of the redesign. Ocusync 2.0 is included in the controller for enhanced range and noise reduction. Because the drone weighs 570g, you may have to register it depending on where you reside. The DJI Fly control now has a new design that permits you to connect a phone to the front of the controller using a telescopic grip that can accommodate phones of various sizes, even phablets. The majority of camera functions are available via the latest DJI Fly app, thanks to the minimalist design. There are only a few full access controls, including the flight remote controls, a stabilizer control dial, and a Refund button.

Remote Control:

It charges through USB-C & attaches to your mobile through a stow cable at the front. The antenna on the remote isn’t movable, and don’t worry; it’s still safe to fly. The Air 2 can fly at speeds of up to 23.5 mph, compared to 18 mph for the Mavic Mini.


In perfect conditions, DJI’s Mavic Air 2 drone can remain in the air for more than 32 minutes, compared with the previous model’s 20-minute flight period. The distance has been increased to nearly 6 miles, however, you must license it with the FAA to fly it officially. If you fly overly high or low, the DJI Fly app will notify you.

Image & Video Quality:

The Mavic Air’s picture quality has substantially increased because of the sensor. The camera has a constant f/2.8 lens and an entire equal resolving power of 24mm. The intensity is sufficient to keep both close and distant landscape pictures crisp. However, at ISO 100, noise is obvious, as in all drones with small sensors. In comparison to its predecessor, the Mavic Air 2 has significantly enhanced border clarity. 

The clearest photos are in the center of the frame, with a decrease off as you move closer to the image boundaries. If you’re a skilled shooter, capturing Direct (DNG) and using hand capturing and editing skills instead of the features will yield superior results.


  • Image/video performance is excellent. 
  • The form is foldable and lightweight. 
  • The battery is much extended.
  • A half-hour fly time is required. 
  • Distance of 6 miles. 
  • Cam detector that is larger and finer.


  • The cam video occasionally pauses. 
  • The device has no display.
  • The Electrical control button is absent from the joystick.


DJI’s Mavic Air 2 is the finest drone with a great blend of photography, speed, and safety precautions.
