DJI Mavic Air 2 drone photos leaked

Here are the first leaked DJI Mavic Air 2 drone photos:

Here is what to expect from the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone:

Design and form factor

  • We expect the DJI Mavic to be slightly bigger and heavier than the DJI Mavic Air, but still significantly smaller and lighter than the DJI Mavic 2.
  • In terms of materials used and overall design, the new DJI Mavic seems to be more sturdy and solidly built then the original DJI Mavic Air. The Air had a somewhat fancy but also complicated and fragile design. Remember those tips at the front legs that you’d have to fold out? The new DJI Mavic seems to be much more straightforward and simple in its design.
  • The new design is very similar to that of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom, which in my view a good thing since those drones are very well built.

Camera and gimbal

  • The DJI Mavic will feature a 3-axis stabilized gimbal and camera.
  • It will not feature a one-inch sensor.
  • However, it will have 4K video capability and will likely be on par with the DJI Mavic Zoom and possibly be even better (without having optical zoom).
  • Video footage will be significantly better (fewer compression artifacts, increased dynamic range) than the original Mavic Air, which had 4K at 100 Mbps.
  • The camera and gimbal hardware seem to be copied from the DJI Mavic 2 Pro albeit in a smaller package.

DJI Mavic features

  • The original DJI Mavic Air had a number of special features such as 32MP sphere panoramas, HDR photos, QuickShots, ActiveTrack, and gesture control. We expect the DJI Mavic to have similar and likely more and better features.
  • The new DJI Mavic will almost certainly have 360-degree obstacle avoidance and will have ADS-B In capabilities, making it DJI’s safest drone ever.
  • We suspect that the new DJI Mavic will have a much stronger Wi-Fi connection and a better range than the original Mavic Air. It might even have Lightbridge. Of course, we hope that DJI will include Ocusync 2.0, but we haven’t been able to confirm that as of yet.
  • We do not yet know if the DJI Mavic will be compatible with the DJI Smart Controller.
  • It will have new motors, props, and ESCs, and flight time will likely be around 30 minutes. (Thanks to Mr. D. for chipping in here.)

Pricing and availability

  • We are expecting the new DJI Mavic to be introduced in late April.
  • We are currently checking to see if FCC filings have already been made.
  • Pricing will likely be below $1,000.
