The DJI Mavic Air 2 is the drone of the moment offering good value for money. If you don't believe it, educate yourself by reading our review before buying one.

With the release of the Mavic Mini in late 2019, DJI has broadened its horizons by offering consumers a product that is both affordable and functional. This is a drone whose peculiarities are interesting for mid-range equipment.

However, it cannot fully meet the expectations of more advanced users due to its rather basic features. While its price / performance ratio is quite good, many consider the Mavic Mini to be a device designed almost exclusively for social media posts.

How does the DJI Mavic Air 2 look?

  • Mark : DJI
  • Type : foldable drone with integrated camera
  • Photo resolution : 48 MP (8000 × 6000 pixels)
  • Drums : 3500 mAh
  • Autonomy announced : up to 34 minutes
  • Scope : 18.5 km

To target seasoned and professional users, DJI made a point of closing the gap between the Mavic Mini and other drones in the same category by announcing the release of the Mavic Air 2. This is a more efficient product, but which is also not likely to hurt your wallet.

The Mavic Air 2 intended for all types of users. Ranging from casual pilots to drone enthusiasts to professionals, DJI wants to conquer new targets.

And it has paid off since its brand new product is almost ahead of the competition. Available at a price of 850 euros, this Mavic Air 2 costs about double the Mavic Mini. But this price remains much lower than the flagship models such as DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Phantom 4 Pro.

So, what can this Air 2 have in store for us with its tempting price?

Impressive properties

The equipment is delivering incredible performance. Indeed, the Mavic Air 2 has a half-inch image sensor that can record videos in 4K (twice as efficient as the Mavic Mini with its 2.7K).

It can also display 60 frames per second. This means that you can create smooth or slow motion 4K footage, a feature traditionally reserved for high-end drones.

Autonomous equipment, the Mavic Air 2 has among others a longer flight time: about 30 minutes. But its great asset lies in the fact that it is equipped with sensors that help him avoid obstacleswhether it's forward, backward or downward. This feature creates greater peace of mind during use, especially for novice users.

Practical and easy to handle options

TheOcuSync 2.0 option is an integral part of the drone system. This is the famous DJI proprietary video transmission technology. It provides clear images that you can view directly on the screen of your remote control. And of course, the drone has other video and photo options that users can experiment with.

How does Mavic Air 2 manage to capture high quality videos and images? Simply because DJI gave him a flight software that guarantees a perfect balance. It can be said that DJI has made improvements to the system of this drone so that it can meet the expectations of a wide audience.

The equipment also has the Quickshots function. This allows users to make precise, pre-programmed camera movements that would usually be very difficult for a beginner to accomplish. With names like "Propeller", "Asteroid" and others even more unusual, drone use becomes a real pleasure. Trying them will be sure to amuse you.

A versatile device

The Mavic Air 2 has smart tracking modes that allow the drone to autonomously capture a specific person, vehicle or area. In addition, the device can move very smoothly while recording videos from all angles. The results are stunning and would not derail in a Hollywood film!

The Mavic Air 2 also does type video hyperlapse. This means that it can dramatically speed up the movements of the shapes it captures. You can experience this function by recording the movements of clouds or cars. You can speed up videos with the drone to get original renderings.

However, we found that the Mavic Air 2 hyperlapse is not fluid enough, compared to those of other high-end drones ,. Don't expect to see the same renderings as with the Phantom 4 Pro or 2 Pro. But the Mavic Air 2 still has something to please you with its high dynamic range, 48-megapixel images and APAS-assisted piloting function. These features simply show how easy it is to use, but take time to become fully mastered.

Verdict: the DJI Mavic Air 2, a perfect drone for almost any use

A drone from the DJI brand, the Mavic Air 2 weighs 250 g, which makes it favorable to travel and travel. If you are therefore looking for equipment that offers a better price / performance ratio, you may well turn to this device. It has enhanced capabilities and options that cannot be found on cheaper products, yet its price is also very affordable.

On the other hand, it lacks the features of high-end models, such as the one-inch sensor, only reserved for more expensive drones. But the Mavic Air 2 will meet the needs of pilots and amateur photographers due to its convenience and small size.

We hope that our test has helped you to know this DJI brand product well. It is perfect for a first drone piloting experience. In addition, we can say that its cost is decent if we take into account its features. The Mavic Air 2 deserves that you test it in turn!
