The DJI Mavic Air drone is a new foldable quadcopter from DJI. It features the folding design of the Mavic Pro, but with the compact form-factor of the Spark. The perfect balance for hobbyists. An upgraded camera and 3-axis gimbal help you capture amazing panoramas and record in 4K resolution.
The DJI Mavic Air comes with a redesigned remote controller.
While there is no built-in screen, as you get with the Mavic Pro remote, it does add support for the 5.725 - 5.850 GHz frequency range.
It also features removeable control sticks, which tuck comfortably into the handles of the remote when folded.
This allows the folded remote to become even more compact, plus there's less chance of damage to the remote while in transit.
The Mavic Air remote comes with cables for Lightning, Micro USB (Type-B) and USB-C devices.
The Mavic Air Fly More Combo represents better value than the standalone Mavic Air package - but for those just looking to get started with drones, the standalone package is still a good choice. The Fly More Combo comes with these additional accessories:
This means you'll be able to use your Mavic Air for longer periods of time when you're out flying. Essential if you need to capture more angles for video, or more still images.
