| |

Drone superstar company DJI has just released their newest product – The Mavic Air 2! We have been fans of DJI for a long time so of course, we were eager to find out what’s new (and find out the price tag for this new bit of gear).

To get a feel for what’s new, we have compared the Mavic Air and the Mavic Air 2. Let’s have a look at the specs:

Surprisingly, The new Mavic Air 2 is actually a little bit bigger than the original Mavic Air…but there’s a major upgraded to the camera and DJI have significantly improved the flight time. The controller has also been improved. The phone handles at the bottom have been removed. Your phone now gets mounted on the top of the controller with a slide-out holder. This is handy for different sized phones or bulky cases. You also don’t have to worry about any antennas.

Here is where you can find the DJI Mavic Air 2.
