Most of us who know drones know that DJI is one of the leaders in the industry. Over the past few years, they have been making some of the best products for both professionals and consumers. With other companies like GoPro, Yuneec, and Autel trying to compete with some of DJI's main products, DJI is here to claim their place as the industry leader yet again.
DJI Mavic Air
The Mavic Air is now the most powerful, intelligent, and compact drone on the market. It features several upgrades in intelligence software, obstacle avoidance, flight modes, and design. This sleek new drone that is now more portable than ever will be available as soon as January 28 with a starting price of $799.

The Mavic Air has taken consumer drones to the next level. This small, yet incredible piece of technology takes the size of the Spark and combines it with the power of the Mavic. This drone was built to give people the option to create no matter where they go and I think DJI did an amazing job coming out with this newly designed Mavic Air.
I myself have always been a huge fan of DJI products. My first drone was a Phantom 2 Vision + and I will be honest, it kinda sucked. A few weeks after buying that drone, I sold it and bought the Phantom 3 Advanced. The difference between the two drones was night and day. Today, after droning for almost three full years, I couldn't be happier to see how much DJI has evolved as a company. Their drones have come such a long way as far as reliability and quality goes. I even think that just their cameras on the drones alone have gotten so much better that they are competing with a lot of the other top of the line cameras out there for both photo and video. I currently own a Mavic and an Inspire 2 with the X5S and am absolutely in love with both drones. If it weren't for DJI, I wouldn't be able to do what I do. Whether that be for work or my own personal content, their products have gotten me to the point I am at today. It is no surprise that DJI has come out with more amazing products as they continue to set the standard for drones of the future.
