DJI Mavic Air Is Here With 4K Recording And A Top Speed Of 42.5mph

DJI just announced Mavic Air, their latest consumer drone in New York. As expected, the UAV is a mix between the Spark and the Mavic Pro. Let’s see the specs and pricing! #actionmagic

Yesterday, we were hoping for a drone that could give us the best of both worlds – the light body and compact form of Spark and a performance similar to the one offered by Mavic Pro. Turns out, Mavic Air is just that. Folded, the drone has a smaller footprint than even the Spark (an achievement on its own) and is 40% lighter than the Mavic Pro.

DJI was careful to touch this mid-range level not only in terms of specs but also price. Mavic Air is going to cost $799, clearly more than the Spark but still budget-friendly enough for those who didn’t dare come near Mavic Pro.

  • 4K video recording capabilities at up to 30fps (thanks to a new 1/2.3-inch sensor)

  • a top speed of 42.5mph
  • new shooting modes (32MP panorama or Tiny Planet style-shots)
  • new 3-axis gimbal system
  • gesture control
  • 21 minutes flight time
  • seven-camera obstacle avoidance system
  • 2.5 mile range
  • remote with built-in screen
