What’s New? The DJI Mavic Air is focused even more towards portability than DJI’s first compact drone, the Mavic Pro. Weight has been reduced by 10 ounces, and DJI shaved over an inch of the overall length while adding 8GB of internal storage. A redesigned gimbal still captures UHD 4K up to 30p but drops support for DCI 4K. The maximum video bitrate has been raised to 100Mpbs from 60Mbps.

21 Minute Maximum Flight Time.DJI reports that in lab tests with ideal conditions (Read: not the places you’ll likely be using it) the drone has a 21 minute flight time. A more realistic average is probably around 15 minutes.
Drone Control From 2.5 Miles Line-Of-Sight. The Mavic Air’s twin stick controller works in tandem with the DJI Go app to allow control at distances of around 2.5 miles line-of-sight, and real-time video can be monitored at 720p. DJI reports this distance as ideal line-of-sight conditions. Your literal mileage may vary.
Subject Tracking Modes. The gimbal offers multiple options for locking onto and easily tracking subjects like people, vehicles, and pets. The gesture mode allows for hands free selfie snaps, and multiple QuickShots modes offer one tap video selfies that can be shared straight to social media sites. Landing is simplified to a button press, returning the drone to the location where it took off from, and lowering itself delicately onto the ground.
