Today, we review the DJI Mavic Air. What are the pros and cons of this new DJI drone? Should you buy the Mavic Air? Or, should you rather wait for Mavic Pro 2?
Because this drone is targeting beginners, good build quality is important. Does the Mavic Air score well on this front? This new DJI product is compact and easy to travel with. But, can you generate ample speed? Is the transmission range good enough?
We discuss if serious pilots should consider purchasing this new drone. How does this drone compare to the Mavic Pro and Phantom 4 Pro? Can you capture buttery smooth footage using this drone? Is Atti mode available on the Mavic Air? Can you shoot at 60 fps? Tune in and hear Rob and Paul thoroughly review this new DJI offering. We thank Kevin from Minnesota for the question. Fly safe!
