DJI Mavic Air announced
DJI has announced its latest drone, the Mavic Air. The drone is as small as the Spark and is foldable like the Mavic Pro. It’s about the size of a typical smartphone when folded.
The Mavic Air shoots 4K videos at 30fps using its 12MP f/2.8 CMOS sensor. It can also do slow-mo of up to 1080p at 120fps. Aside from the microSD card slot, there’s a built-in 8GB storage accessible via USB Type-C port.
For stability and safety, the Mavic Air features a 3-axis gimbal and a 3-directional environmental sensing (better obstacle avoidance compared to the Mavic Pro). In Sports mode, it can go as fast as 68.4kmph with a maximum flight time of 21 minutes.
The DJI Mavic Air sits between the original Mavic Pro and the DJI Spark. The standard set retails for USD$799 (about Php40,000) with the combo going for $999 (Php50,000). Color availability in white, black and red.
