DJI announces new Mavic Air compact drone

DJI has unveiled its newest drone, the Mavic Air, at an event in New York City. The Mavic Air combines many of the enthusiast-oriented features found on the company’s popular Mavic Pro line of drones with a compact form fact similar to the company’s Spark model.

Key features include:

  • A 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor and new Image Processor
  • 3-axis gimbal*
  • 4K/30p
  • Full HD up to 120fps
  • 32-megapixel spherical panorama mode
  • HDR capture mode
  • 8GB internal storage in addition to MicroSD card
  • Foldable legs with integrated antenna
  • Improved ActiveTrack technology
  • Obstacle-avoidance sensors in the front, back, and bottom
  • Visual positioning system for better control, hovering and indoor flying
  • 21-minute flight time
  • USB-C port
  • Available in white, black and red

Although some drone users may be disappointed with the 21-minute flight time, we suspect it’s a necessary tradeoff in order to achieve the Mavic Air’s compact size, and still 5 minutes more than you’ll get from the Spark.
