The follow-up to the Mavic Air drone has a better camera with 4 modes of Hyberlapse, more features, and a longer battery life.
DJI has announced the new Mavic Air 2 drone. This follow-up to the Mavic Air ships with a better camera, more shooting modes, new tracking features, and a longer battery life. The Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo variation provides additional accessories for those who want a more all-in-one solution.
The new camera setup includes a 1/2 inch sensor that can shoot 48MP stills and 4K video at 60 fps – both of which are an improvement over the original. Complementing that new system are a bevy of new shooting features, including the latest versions of ActiveTrack, Point of Interest, and Spotlight, as well as a full suite of HDR modes and functions.

The Mavic Air 2 also includes the OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system, which more than doubles its transmission distance from 4 to 10km. OcuSync also increases the max video resolution from 720p to Full HD. Along with the new video transmission system, the Mavic Air 2 also sports APAS 3.0, which, according to DJI, is their most sophisticated obstacle-avoidance system to date.
DJI boosted the Mavic Air 2’s flight time up to 34 minutes, which is a massive gain over the original Mavic Air’s 21-minute span. In terms of performance, a 34-minute flight time puts the Mavic Air 2 right at the top of DJI’s product line and makes it one of the longest lasting midsize drones available today.
