The compact and foldable design of the DJI Air 2S Drone lets you easily capture breathtaking aerial images and video whenever the mood strikes. It's an ideal alternative for use when travelling on vacation or for photography enthusiasts looking to record from new and unique perspectives. Piloting is made to be easy and intuitive via your smartphone and the DJI Fly app. Simply slip your phone into the included remote controller. Thanks to the Air 2S's 3-axis gimbal, four remote antennae, and OcuSync 3.0 technology, you can receive a stable, live view from the drone up to 7.5 miles away.

You can fly freely with the Air 2S or you can use MasterShots to automatically create content based on themed templates, FocusTrack modes to track subjects in various ways, QuickShot modes to perform automated flight maneuvers, or Hyperlapse modes for timelapse videos. Together, they can deliver pro-quality results while taking some of the complexities of aerial filming off of your shoulders. Results are made to look stunning thanks to the gimbal's 1" CMOS sensor and 22mm wide-angle lens that's capable of 20MP stills and up to 5.4K Ultra HD videos. As you fly, obstacle avoidance, geofencing, return-to-home, and DJI's AirSense work to keep the Air 2S, bystanders, and other objects safe.

MasterShots
For a more automated filming solution, MasterShots will follow your subject and automatically select 1 of 3 flight routes (Proximity, Landscape, or Portrait) based on the subject and its distance. The Air 2S drone will record a sequence of shots and edit them via a variety of preset themed templates you can choose with a single tap. If you'd like, you can also edit the footage, add audio, or subtitles.
FocusTrack Modes
ActiveTrack 4.0: Select a subject and the drone will track and keep it centered in the frame. It will then automatically fly and track the subject as it moves, keeping a safe distance and utilizing the Air 2S's wide sensing range of its obstacle avoidance to protect itself in flight. If the subject is lost, the drone will automatically attempt to reacquire a lock.
Spotlight 2.0: Select a subject and the drone will track and keep it centered in the frame, giving you the ability to pilot freely.
POI 3.0: This will track a subject in a circle, based on a set radius and flight speed.
QuickShot Modes
Choose either Rocket, Circle, Dronie, Helix, Boomerang, or Asteroid to perform professional-quality aerial filming maneuvers.
Hyperlapse Modes
Circle: Flies around a subject and generates a timelapse video.
Course Lock: Locks onto a subject and flies in a straight line as the gimbal tracks it, keeping it centered in frame.
Waypoint: Setup a flight plan with up to 5 waypoints. The Air 2S will automatically fly along the waypoints and record a timelapse video. The altitude, distance, and gimbal angle of each waypoint can be adjusted.
Free: This provides you with complete freedom and manual control over the drone and gimbal.
SmartPhoto & HyperLight
HyperLight is a technology that can be used to take better shots at night or in low-light scenarios. SmartPhoto can automatically recognize 5 different scenes, utilizing HyperLight and HDR technology to help optimize photo and video results as needed. The DJI Air 2S can detect Sunset, Blue Sky, Grass, Snow, and Green Trees scenes.
Obstacle Sensing & Avoidance
Knowing what's around the immediate area of the drone is critical during manual or automated flight, helping to ensure that accidents are prevented. The Air 2S drone is equipped with forward, backward, upward, and downward sensors, and with the addition of APAS 4.0 technology, can avoid obstacles in open and narrow environments, such as when flying through trees.
AirSense
This will warn pilots of nearby airplanes and helicopters that transmit ADS-B signals, letting you fly to safer locations.
GEO 2.0
This feature utilizes geofencing to help advise you of airspace restrictions.
FPV Gimbal Mode
Normally your gimbal is synchronized with the horizon to give you smooth footage, but in FPV Gimbal Mode, you can synchronize the gimbal with the physical movements of the Air 2S itself. This gives your video the look and feel of flying from a first-person perspective, with the horizon line tilting as you bank from side to side or fly forward or backward.

DJI AIR 2S Reviews

So-so

By Benjamin

Good little drone, very portable, good battery life, etc. But lots of issues I never had with my Mavic 2 Pro. Sensors are not as good on this (it crashed straight into a tree with all obstacle avoidance on. Tried to land itself in a creek rather than returning to home, etc.) Mixed review for me. I want to love it, but have had too many issues. However, it is still decent enough that I can't hate on it too much. Just so-so. Also had a lot of random connectivity issues with my Smart Controller.

Best around for the price

I've owned 7 drones over the past 8 years..all but one was a DJI product (That was when I bought the Yuneec Typhoon H Pro). From The Phantom line to the Mavic line, each one got better. I then went to the Mavic Air 2 when I needed something smaller that wasn't a distraction as I documented a one year EPA Super-Fund site remediation project. I'm a licensed FAA Part 107 UAS pilot. The EPA wanted quality; the contractors wanted no distractions, so the Air 2 filled the bill. Most of the time, they never knew I was there. They never saw me and I seldom flew below 150 feet, so it was practically invisible in the sky and noiseless because of the ambient noise of the construction. Then, something interfered with the signal or there was a malfunction of some sort and it dropped from the sky and landed in the water. I then replaced it with the Air 2S and never looked back. The Air 2 advertises itself as having a 48MP camera, but that's misleading. It achieves that by basically tricking the sensor to split the 12 pixels into quarters and calling it 48. The Air 2S has a much larger sensor and the real 12 MP it produces is 4 times better than the quality of the Air 2. The additional 2 anti collision sensors added to the top front of the drone gives it even more protection when flying close to trees or other obstacles. Flight time is the same for both units and the batteries and propellers are interchangeable. It won't work with the Smart Controller I used for the Air 2 (bummer) because it's really nice to have a dedicated remote rather than taking the time to attach the phone, but that's a small price to play. All-in-all, a great product I would recommend to anyone looking to get into the middle end of the drone market.

Very powerful little drone. Amazing picture. Best in line so far. Like it more than my p4 and the portability is amazing. Needs a case for sure. The flynore combo would've been the way to go. Battery life isn't too great, but it's enough to get by. A great drone, absolutely would recommend.

This drone is unbelievable! It does everything I could hope for and more. It almost flys itself. The obstacle avoidance is amazing and allows for smooth videos without worrying about accidents. It has incredible range and if you lose signal it comes back and lands right where it took off. The Mavic Air 2s is the coolest thing I've ever owned and the outstanding customer service and easy financing that I recieved from B&H made it that much better. I honestly cannot say enough about the Mavic Air 2s and B&H photo.

Probably got a bad drone

I have owned at least 4 different DJI drones and I understand that the color profiles are a little different on each one, but this Air 2s is extremely green and desaturated. I also noticed that on the images the altitude metadata is completely wrong. I shot some photos around 80ft AGL and in the metadata it is recorded as almost 400ft AGL. I even checked to see if it was somehow recording ASL instead but that wasn't even close. The color issues make cost me far more time in editing than my Air 2 which makes me not even want to use this one. The larger sensor does a really good job in low light though.

So far so good-really responsive!

I crashed my MavicPro 2...for the second time, it was time to replace it anyway. This DJI AIR 2s is a great replacement. I debated about the Mavic 3 but glad I went with this. I do real estate and this is more than enough for what I need. If I want to do more, the specs are very good.
