DJI Mavic Air 2 full review
Posted: May 12, 2020
If you check the front page news of technology sites and drone sales these days. Every site has at least one news story about DJI Mavic Air 2. The drone surprised its customers and users with its great features, as few people expected the new generation of Mavic Air to be launched with such advanced options.
Maybe if the images and the name of this helicopter were not leaked by quadcopter detectors like OsitaLV. Most people think that this product is a DJI Mavic 3 Pro version from the big music family. But in an unpredictable move, DJI used such advanced options on the Mavic Air 2. In the following, we will examine the reasons for that. Join DJI Land to take a closer look at this camera quadcopter.
As we said a new version of the Mavic with powerful features and advanced features in a surprise move. If you are interested in robotics and drones, you know that DJI has been very weak in unveiling and offering mini-mini. A drone that failed to convince critics in any way, despite its low price and high flight power. So DJI received the negative feedback from customers. The mini-mini was very bad for flying at high altitudes. The camera was not very good. Especially these days when we see the production of smartphones with 60-megapixel cameras and above. Helicopter enthusiasts also expect this type of camera to be used on helicopters. DJI had to design and produce a Mavic Air with these features in order to forget about the weaknesses and shortcomings of the mavic mini from the minds of users.
Another thing that few people think about is the new and tough competitor of DJI, the American company Skydio. Because the company has recently released a new version of SkyDio 2 with super-advanced options such as a 4K camera, a very intelligent obstacle avoidance system. The system for detecting and avoiding obstacles that DJI products still can’t compete with, even the same Mavic Air 2.
So far, DJI’s poor performance in providing a mini-mini and the emergence of a serious and powerful competitor such as SkyDio has forced DJI to keep its customers with Mavic Air 2 with such advanced options and reasonable prices ( Compare and market the Phantom 4 Pro compared to the Mavic 2 Pro. Don’t forget that DJI has more than 70% of the commercial UAV market!Design and body of Mavic Air 2:
Weight and other helicopters are very effective in its ability to fly and control. The lighter your drone, the less energy it needs to fly, so the same light weight helps reduce battery consumption and ultimately increase flight time. But the problem arises when your favorite quadcopter wants to fly at high altitudes or when bad weather conditions such as strong winds fly. When you see it moving in the direction of the wind, it even happens that the wind blows it. So light weight can be a problem despite increasing flight power.
One of the disadvantages of this mini-mini was its light weight because it weighed only 250 grams. The size of a small bird in the sky that could not fly in your desired direction even with low winds. But the DJI has a Mavic Air 2 with folding dimensions ( length = 18 cm, width = 9.7 cm, height = 8.4 mm ) and in flight or non-folding mode ( length = 18.3 cm, width = 25.3 cm, Height = 7.7 mm ) and designed and produced with a weight of 570 grams. Which weighs more than twice as much as the 250-gram mini-mini. And it will no longer have the problem of flying at high altitudes. However, compared to the Mavic 2 Pro, it has halved in weight. And this weight loss has helped increase the drone’s flight time. Of course, part of the weight of 570 grams of Mavic Air 2 belongs to the 198 gram battery of the device.
The Mavic Air 2 is almost identical in design to other members of the Mavic family. And in this regard, it has not broken the tradition, but has maintained the same style as the Mavic quadcopters, ie folding.
Video review of Mavic Air 2Mavic Air 2:
Another major option for the DJI Mavic Air 2, which makes it superior to other members of the Mavic family, is the 34-minute flight of this. Flight time has been increased to 33 minutes in windy conditions and 34 minutes in non-windy conditions thanks to a 3,500 mAh lithium three-cell battery, optimized board range, powerful brush motors.
For example, compared to, the weight of the device has been halved. It also uses a three-cell battery instead of a two-cell battery. And even the battery itself is stronger and more efficient. All of these changes have ultimately led to an increase in the flight capacity of this device.
Flight speed: If you look closely at the new controller of this helicopter, it has a button in the middle that has three modes or three flight modes: Sport, Normal, Tripad. It is used to adjust the speed of the quadcopter. The speed of this helicopter is 68 km / h in horizontal flight mode, 43 km / h in normal light and 18 km / h in Tripod flight mode. Tripad mode is for non-vibration imaging.
Wind resistance: One of the important items for those who love nature and travel. Those who want to travel to the heart of nature, especially the mountainous areas, to film its spectacular attractions. In addition to the weight of the drone, locusts or wings are an important factor in determining its resistance to wind. The maximum resistance of Mavic Air 2 against wind is 8.5 to 10 meters per second (level 5). Which is almost equal to the Mook 2 Pro.
Operating temperature range: This lovely bird for flying in different weather conditions is about 10 to 40 degrees Celsius (14 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit). So you can’t fly too cold or too hot in bad weather. Because in addition to consuming a lot of energy, there is a lot of pressure on the board and the motor of the device.
Operating frequency : The Mavic Air 2, like its older version, has two frequency bands of 2,400 to 2,4835 GHz and 5,725 to 5,850 GHz. Which helps to transfer video images from a distance of 8 km to smartphones installed on the controller. Erone’s effective radio power (EIRP) also has two frequency bands of 2,400 to 2,4835 GHz and 5,725 to 5,850 GHz. This frequency band is very important in increasing the range of the device, especially its image transmission range. However, people who are new to Heli Shot. This content is not very attractive.
Flying accuracy range is another item of this advanced helicopter that we have to deal with.
Butterflies: Folding, quick installation, low noise are the most important features of the locusts or butterflies of this helicopter, which play an important role in controlling the flight, increasing its speed and resistance to wind.
Satellite System: This helicopter has the same global positioning system as GPS and GLONASS, as well as a compass. It also has an internal measurement unit (IMU). If you are interested in robotics and aerospace, you know that IMU is an electronic sensor, whose mission is to detect and measure direction, gravitational forces and UAV speed.
Quadcopter Memory: One of the most important questions customers ask before is internal memory and memory card support. Because enough space is needed to store recorded images. As for the storage and memory status of the Mook Air 2, know that this small drone supports memory cards up to 256 GB in addition to 8 GB of internal memory. Which can be filmed and stored for hours.Mavic Air 2 camera:
The key indicator in choosing and buying a camera drone is its camera. Especially for those who work in the studio and make promotional teasers, or for those who travel and explore nature.
From the calls of Mavic Air 2 customers in the last few days, we have reached this conclusion. The camera is more important to customers than any other quadcopter item. Because most people want a hot shot for filming.
dji has launched its mid-range flagship with a 4 megapixel 48-megapixel f / 2.8 camera. So you can capture high quality images. Its camera sensor is 1/2? CMOS. Which allows you to take 12 or 48 megapixel photos. As mentioned in the specifications of the camera, its focal length is limited to 1 meter to infinity.
The good features of the mavic air 2 camera do not end there, but this helicopter is capable of capturing 8K hyperlip movies. This is the first time such a feature has been seen among DJI quadcopters. You can take photos with a resolution of 8000 × 6000. And shoot with 12 or 48 megapixel quality. To schedule a photo shoot, you can set a time of 2/3/5/7/10/15/20/30/60 seconds.
4K60fps / 1080P video recording
Mavic Air 2 offers an exceptional video in 4K / 60fps, 2.7K / 60 fps and 1080p / 240fps quality, which is suitable for manufacturers of promotional teasers and those who are looking to improve their artistic skills. D-Cinelike retains great detail and allows you to change colors like a professional.
This is where everything gets interesting. Mavic Air 2 comes with HDR video, which supports high-performance Quad Bayer technology. Thanks to the HDR sensor architecture, it ensures you capture layered images with exceptional detail and color.
SmartPhoto Smart Shooting
Mavic Air 2 features SmartPhoto, which combines HDR, HyperLight and scene detection for a perfectly optimized shoot. Hyperlight improves photos taken in low light conditions by combining images and removing noise. Scene detection optimizes camera shooting parameters based on identifying scenes such as sunset, sky, grass, snow, and trees. HDR uses advanced algorithms to optimize the dynamic range of your image. SmartPhoto provides a clever way to photograph drones that make it easy to take stunning photos.
For users looking to take ultra-wide photos for social media and media coverage, the Mavic Air 2 offers the most advanced DJI panorama mode with clear color and detail.
Using the famous three-axis gimbal system, Mavic Air 2 performs high quality photography and video recording even in bad weather conditions.
This is a great feature for content creators who want to turn great movies into professional and cinematic scenes. Mavic Air 2 puts time and movement in the palm of your hand and allows you to display a scene from day to night in seconds. Similar to the image below:
Hyperlapse 8K is an incredible way to discover your creative narrative, simply choose your shooting location, and the automatic scene program creates a few seconds without the need for any editing.
Music Air 2 supports JPEG / DNG (RAW) formats for storing photos and MP4 / MOV formats (H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC, H.265 / HEVC) for storing videos. The common MP4 format allows you to watch videos made with Air 2 on all mobile devices and computers.

Three-axis gimbal is one of the famous DJI options that is used on all its products. And in the new Mavic Air 2 UAV, it is equipped or equipped with Gimbal. To neutralize camera movements in the best possible way while filming. The three axes used in this drone include horizontal or pan movements with a controllable angle (-100 to 100 degrees), vertical or tilt movements with an angle (-135 to 45 degrees) and rotational movements with a 90 degree angle ( -45 to 45). Operating error is ± 0.01.. The specs mentioned in the Gimbal Mook Air 2 show that they can control the camera error when shooting with a hot shot. Without a stabilizer or gimbal, it is not possible to record video without vibration with a quadcopter that vibrates a lot in the air. So to buy, always consider Gimbal!Vision DJI Mavic Air 2:
As we said at the beginning of this article, the AIR 2’s avoidance barrier system is APAS 3.0, or advanced pilot assistance systems that help it fly well in different environments. And it prevents the quadcopter from colliding with the obstacles ahead. A system that operates on UAVs thanks to smart sensors used. But these sensors are only installed in the rear, front, under the Mook Air 2. And there’s no sensor on the left, right, or top, which is arguably the biggest drawback of this helicopter. The drawback could be a weakness for it compared to the SkyDive 2 helical shot. So the Mavic Air 2’s obstacle avoidance system can’t guarantee 100% security when flying.
The table below clearly shows the system for avoiding the obstacles of Mavic Air 2.
Accurate measurement range: 0.35–22.0 meters Diagnosis range: 0.35 to 44 meters Effective measurement speed: 12 meters per second Field of view (FOV): 71 degrees (horizontal), 56 degrees (vertical) Rear sensors Accurate measurement range: 0.37–23.6 meters Diagnosis range: 0.37–47.2 meters Effective measurement speed: 12 meters per second Field of view (FOV): 44 degrees (horizontal), 57 degrees (vertical) Left and right sensors

The Mook Air 2 has a lot of amazing features, one of the most interesting of which is its great transfer power and video range. That means it can transmit images and video up to 10 kilometers away. This means that you can watch and record live images up to a maximum distance of 10 km from the drone. And if the drone is 11 to 15 kilometers away from you, you won’t see any images. Instead, you can use GPS to order a hot shot from the scene (more than 10 km away) to film or photograph the area. Videos and images taken from this distance are stored on the memory card or quadcopter’s own memory. However, you no longer have a live image of that area on the screen installed on your controller. Although the videos you record with the Mook Air 2 camera are in 4K format, the images received live on the screen are by no means 4K. They are 720 or 1080 quality with 30 frames per second.
Another point is not to worry if you receive images with low noise or low quality at a distance of less than 10 km, because the original video is stored on the heli shot itself. Which is noiseless and high quality.
Mook Air 2 is equipped with OcuSync 2.0 technology. OcuSync was first introduced with the Mook Pro and is part of the Lightbridge family, a wireless transmission that transmits HD wireless video signals with little delay without loss of quality. And by controlling the signals, it is possible to transfer high-quality video images from distant distances to smart devices installed on the controller. And it supports two frequencies of 2.4GHz / 5.8GHz with automatic switch. The table below gives you a better idea of??the features of the Mook Air 2 image transfer.
However, the delay in receiving live video depends on the environmental conditions and the type of mobile phone installed on the controller. Try using the new flagship Nokia 9 or Galaxy S11 or iPhone X.
Transmission system OcuSync 2.0 with 2.4 GHz frequency and 5.8 GHz and automatic switch Maximum video range 10km (FCC)
6km (MIC) Quality of images received live 720p @ 30fps / 1080 @ p30fps Delay (depending on environmental conditions and mobile device) 120–130 milliseconds Video encryption encryption format H.265 Maximum bit rate live display 40 megapixels Operating frequency 2,400–2,4835GHz
The FCC of the US Federal Communications Commission has approved a 6 GHz frequency for the Wi-Fi industry. It seems that Wi-Fi tools like these DJI quadcopters need to get the relevant test and certificate from the FCC.

MIC minimum restraint concentrationRemote controller Mavic Air 2:
Another interesting change in the new DJI flagship is its remote controller. Because the location of the mobile phone on the controller has been completely changed and moved from the bottom to the top so that when you take the controller and work with the joystick, your hands do not interfere with seeing the mobile screen, as well as the overall shape of the holder and mobile It has changed completely. A rail holder is used instead of the previous holder. To be easily responsive to the width of the phone.
The remote control system is OcuSync2.0, which was described. It supports a variety of Lightning, Micro USB and USB Type-C cables to connect to a mobile phone.
You may be wondering if you can use a tablet to display on a radio controller.In response to this question, the controller and rail holders of this controller support smart devices with a maximum length of 18 cm, a width of 8.6 cm and a thickness of 1 cm. Due to the dimensions mentioned, it does not seem that your tablets can be installed on the controller.
The operating temperature of this controller is minus 10 to positive 40 degrees Celsius (14 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit).Mavic Air 2 battery:
Instead of losing weight, DJI uses a stronger battery instead of losing weight. However, the weight of the device has been reduced by half compared to the Mavic 2 Pro. One of the main components of the quadcopter, which plays a major role in determining its flight time, is the battery. DJI uses a 2,600 mAh 2-cell battery in the. Due to the reduced size and weight of the drone, its flight time has been increased to 30 minutes. However, this weight loss has caused a lot of criticism of the cheap flagship DJI. Because at high altitudes and even mild wind conditions, this bird did not perform well.
It was here that the company launched its new helicopter with stronger options to compensate for the weakness of the Mavic Mini. One of these options is to use a large 3,500 mAh lithium polymer battery. The battery weighs just 198 grams and accounts for about 35 percent of the 570 grams of the Mavic Air 2. Of course, the battery of this quadcopter is more efficient and stronger than previous models.
Of course, you can buy a Combo Air Mavic 2 with three batteries that can shoot up to 102 minutes of travel time in nature. Or use a power bank to charge them if needed.Mavic Air 2 Battery Charger:
The last part of this device that we are examining is the battery charger. The Mook Air 2 2’s battery charger supports 100 to 240 volts input current, 60/50 Hz, 1.3 amps. The maximum output current of this charger is 13.2 volts, 2.82 amps and for the charger with USB port, it supports 5 volts, 2 amps. The maximum allowable voltage is 13.2 volts. And it has a Rated Power of 38 watts.The difference between Mavic Air 2 and Mavic Air 2 Combo:
Many users have asked about the difference between the standard ness and the combo of this helicopter. As some of you know, these two are only different in terms of the number of accessories, such as the battery.
If you buy a standard pack, the extra battery will not come with the device, despite the cheaper price. But if you buy a Combo pack, in addition to the self-shot battery, there are two additional main batteries included. Of course, this difference is not limited to the battery. Because the Combo pack has a bag, ND filters for the drone camera, a charger hub, a number of battery power converters, the standard version of which does not have any of these.
However, the Combo version costs $ 200 more. But the accessories listed above come with the device, which is priced at over $ 300 in the open market or in sales centers. The image below clearly shows the difference between the two versions. The standard version of the Mook Air 2 is priced at $ 799 and the Combo version is priced at $ 988. If the Mook was $ 11 more expensive for the same price and even a combo version. Do you think Mavic Air is comparable to Mavic Air 2?
Helichot Mavic Air 2 is the best choice to buy in 2020 due to its great price and technical specifications. This quadcopter is significantly superior to other mid-range DJI products and other brands on the market, both in terms of price and features. Rest assured that DJI, instead of using a combination of hardware from its previous UAVs, such as the Mavic family of products, to offer a new version of the Mavic Air, uses a completely new technology and advanced hardware to build the Mavic Air 2 quadcopter. Is.
It can be said that the mini-mini copy of the previous products has a few changes. But in the case of the Mavic Air 2, there is no room for such a judgment and no criticism.
Those who are still hesitant to buy this device. It is better to wait for the next month to see more advanced features and weaknesses with more tests and flights by different people around the world.
Whether or not to buy a DJi Mavic Air 2 is up to you. Even if the new version of Mavic 2, Mavic 3 Pro, will be released soon. But again, this drone is worth buying because of its great features and reasonable price. The only downside to this device is the lack of sensors on the left and right and the top, which we’ve covered in this content.
Undoubtedly, Corona has not been ineffective in determining the cheap price of this helicopter with its devastating effects on the world economy
