The drone industry has been kind to consumers. A supply of highly affordable, lightweight, high-tech models has hit the market lately. Topping that list—and hovering miles above the competition—is the DJI Mavic Air.
Announced earlier this year, the Mavic Air is DJI’s most portable drone, and it packs the most value.
Among the highlights are 4K video, 12MP high-definition stills, and 8GB of internal storage.
Advanced flying controls allow you to steer right from a smartphone app.
This drone features a whopping seven cameras: two at the front, two at the rear, two underneath, and the primary camera.
Using the DJI Mavic Air, you can capture 32MB panoramic pictures and film for up to 21 minutes without a charge. (For comparison, the bigger Mavic Pro runs for 27 minutes.)
The DJI Mavic Air allows users to have a fabulous immersive experience. You can tap into the Mavic Air’s camera with DJI Goggles (they come with the drone in certain packages) for a full first-person view of your flight path.
At top speed in sport mode, the drone can reach 68.4 kph, or roughly 42 mph. It weighs a bit less than a pound and is about six inches long, so it is a featherweight champ.
DJI is one of the original consumer drone manufacturers and they’ve set the standard for ready-to-fly products. Plus, they have a whole line of Mavic accessories to take your drone to new heights.
