Over the past few years, drones have really come a long way. In 2020, DJI launched what is perhaps the biggest step up in terms of features to cost with the $799 Mavic Air 2.
In this long-term review from Billy Kyle, he shares his experiences flying the DJI Mavic Air 2 and offers some comparisons to other drones in his arsenal like the less expensive DJI Mavic Mini and doubly expensive DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Double the money doesn’t always mean double the return and Kyle places the Mavic Air 2 at the top of his favorites list.
At $799 for the Mavic Air 2, this intermediate pricing appears to be well worth the feature set. There’s 4K 60p video recording (240p in Full HD), a 48-megapixel 1/2-inch CMOS sensor capable of 8K hyper-lapses, obstacle avoidance, smart tracking modes, and plenty more goodness. In the end, the biggest drawback isn’t on the specs sheet according to Kyle. Check out the video above for all his thoughts, good and bad, on this new drone.
