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.
