DJI Mavic Air 2, the new benchmark for consumer drones?

DJI unveils its new consumer drone, the Mavic Air 2. The replacement for the Mavic Air is reassuring for beginners because of its assistance from the professional range of the manufacturer.

Who can do more, benefits least. Appreciated for the reliability and performance of its drones among professionals, the DJI brand also makes its models intended for the general public benefit from some of its most proven technologies. This is the case with the arrival of the Mavic Air 2.

The successor of the Mavic Air moves away frankly at the level of the pace, dimensions and capacities to strongly resemble the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom for professional vocation. Folded up, it can be held in the palm of the hand and uses the same system of arms and propellers that deploy. On the weight side, with its 570 grams, it is heavier than its predecessor, but remains below 800 grams requiring obtaining acertificate on the Alphatango website, as well as the registration of the aircraft .

The drone incorporates most of the obstacle sensors in the upper range, apart from the lateral and upper collision avoidance modules. It also has the Hyperlapse option which assembles the shots taken during a preprogrammed mode. Thanks to these automatisms and its sensors, the drone will forgive many piloting errors for beginners, unlike the Mavic Mini. Like the latter, it also has the ActiveTrack function and shots in preprogrammed evolutions (Rocket, Boomerang, Asteroid , Dronie, Circle, Spiral).
