DJI Mavic Air

DJI Announces
The Best Ultra-Compact Drone
the Mavic Air

A marvel of engineering and design, the Mavic Air was built to go wherever adventure takes you. Inheriting the best of the Mavic series, this ultraportable and foldable drone features high-end flight performance and functionality for limitless exploration.

DJI Mavic Air Top Features
3-Axis Gimbal and 4K Camera
32MP Sphere Panoramas
21 Minute Flight Time
42 mph in Sport Mode
8GB of Internal Storage
The Best of Both Worlds

Borrowing elements from both the Mavic Pro and Spark, the Mavic Air represents the best of both worlds. Its compact size is comparable to the ultra-sleek Spark, while its foldable design, sophisticated camera setup, and advanced vision system mirrors those found in the Mavic Pro.

3-Axis Gimbal Camera

Despite its ultra-compact design, the Mavic Air houses a camera setup that rivals much larger drones, including the larger Mavic Pro. The Mavic Air features a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera with a 1.2/3” CMOS sensor that captures 12MP stills, 32MP sphere panoramas, and can shoot UHD 4K 30p video with a bit rate of 100 Mbps.

HDR Photos

New HDR algorithms help you obtain the right exposure settings intelligently, according to lighting conditions. Overexposed or dark areas are processed for more natural transitions between highlights and shadows, while DSP acceleration allows for more efficient shooting.

A League of Its Own

The Mavic Air is a one-of-a-kind flyer that boasts several “DJI firsts,” including 8GB of onboard storage and foldable, pocket-friendly design. Add in its 42 mph top speed, 21-minute flight time, and sophisticated vision sensing technologies, and you have a drone that’s truly one of a kind.
