DJI Mavic Air vs DJI Mavic Air 2 vs DJI Mavic Mini


The first images of DJI Mavic Air 2 appeared online along with a few specs. The new drone will be released on April 26th. Here’s a comparison of the new DJI Mavic Air 2 with its predecessor DJI Mavic Air and their smaller companion DJI Mavic Mini:

DJI Mavic Air vs DJI Mavic Air 2 vs DJI Mavic Mini – Drone Specs

The new DJI Mavic Air 2 will be a bit heavier and larger compared to DJI Mavic Air. Due to a larger battery this improves flight-time which will be increased to 34 min – also exceeding the flight time of DJI Mavic Mini. 10km video transmission is available also exceeded Air 1 and Mavic Mini.

DJI Mavic Air 2 holds a larger physical sensor – a 1/2″ sensor compared to the 1/2.3″ sensor used in DJI Mavic Air and DJI Mavic Mini. Also the number of effective pixels is higher: 48 MP. 4x as much as Air and Mini (12 MP).
Video specs improved, now offering 60fps in 4K and 240 fps in 1080p for ultra slow motion. With DJI Mavic Air 2 also HDR video is introduced (but limited to 4K 30fps). Max. bitrate was pushed to 120 Mbps. Max. photo resolution is 48 MP – 8000 x 6000 pixel photos. It seems the internal storage was dropped compared to Air 1 – so don’t forget to insert your SD card before takeoff.


Intelligent Flight Modes & Sensors



DJI Mavic Air 1 is not available at the DJI Store anymore. You might get a cheap deal at Amazon or other stores who want to clear stock.


DJI Mavic Mini seems to be widely available currently.
DJI Mavic Air 2 ships from DJI Store first, so I guess the best option to get.
In general I prefer buying at DJI store since you can get your Care Refresh which is instantly activated with your drone.
