    This drone is pretty much everything I could ask for (in this price range). I’ve flown it 5 times at this point and have no real complaints. The speed is great, it’s responsive, it holds its position quite well in the air, and the video quality is pretty awesome. Being able to have control over the white balance, color, and of course the resolution/frame rates is a big step up from the Spark (I’m pretty sure these are adjustable on the Mavic Pro as well). I purchased a DJI Spark right before the announcement and was contemplating if I wanted to upgrade to the Air or a Mavic Pro. Once the battery fell out my Spark Mid-Flight I decided I needed that upgrade. I’ve never flown the Mavic Pro, but honestly the way it’s camera/gimbal hang there just seems to make me nervous, so I was happy to see the increased camera protection on the Air. I’m still very much a beginner pilot but I don’t feel like this drone is too much for me. Having said that, start slow with any drone. There’s plenty of time to work up to things like max speed and altitude. Unless you feel like buying your drone multiple times :)

    Amazing Drone!

    I've tested the Mavic Pro (cause I returned it) and I have to say this one felt more safe to fly. Not sure if it's the size, the responsiveness or the gimbal being more stable and secure. Camera is definitely better than Mavic Pro even though you can't get D Log. I use D-Cinelike and that creates amazing videos for editing. There is barely any noise as compared to the Mavic Pro's camera. So you're getting best of all worlds with this little guy if you're a beginner to intermediate level pilot and want to use it recreationally due to it's size, portability, pro features and price point. Can't go wrong with this purchase. If you're worried about the range, I assure you that you're going to run out of battery before running out of range (most range tests ended due to low battery) assuming you're flying in an open area with very few obstacles like buildings but you still get at least 15-18 minutes of flight time per battery and you get 3 batteries with fly more combo. Also, yes, I am aware of the new Mavic Pro 2 rumors (which I read is going to be substantially bigger than the current Mavic Pro) but I only use mine as a hobby and don't want to spend probably $1500 for a mavic pro 2 fly more combo.

    Great Size for Travel, Improved Avoinics

    DJI continues to innovate. The reduction in size from the Mavic Pro while adding additional technology is huge ;). You can now travel with the Mavic Air without an additional bag or case for the drone, and the thumbsticks for the controller can be removed and stored inside it. I remember being shocked at the size of the Mavic Pro when it came out, skipped the Spark because of the lack of a decent camera, and now the Mavic Air continues this trend. The new APAS (Obstacle Avoidance) mode with rear facing camera's allows for more safety and control. The Camera gets a raised bitrate to 100mb/s which helps with 4k footage being compared to the Mavic Pro. The only cons, a smaller flight time with the size reduction, the battery is removed from the bottom which means you have to flip it over after turning on and the propeller arms have to be folded out to access the battery release buttons. This results in you touching the arms and propellers more than I would prefer. This is a trade off of the folding design- and the smaller non folding propellers are a positive trade off.

    absolutely the best drone I've had

    I purchased the DJI Spark to get my feet wet into the drone world and loved it.. sold the spark to get the Mavic Air and did not regret it one bit.. I actually exchanged this and for the fly more combo because it was a much better value.. the normal bundle only has one battery($90) the fly more combo is $200 more but has 3 batteries, a battery charging dock that lets you charge 4 batteries($50) and a carrying case($50) the 4k video is amazing! vs the spark's 1080p video(which was still very good for the price of the spark) the onboard 8gb memory is nice as I forgot my card once already and was still able to record. the range has improved to 2 miles from the spark's 1 mile range. when folded up, its smaller than the spark. shooting pics in raw is amazing.. but the best feature is the APAS system that will navigate past obstacles instead of just stopping( like what the Mavic Pro does) Ive intentionally tried to fly it into myself and it would either fly above or around me. (so cool) the flight time is better at around 20 minutes VS the sparks 15 min. can't say enough good things about this wonderful drone

    Great Drone, Amazing Picture!

    I was going back and forth between The Mavic Air, and the Mavic Pro. Thankfully I ended up going with the Mavic Air. Having owned Dji Phantoms before, I must say, I don't think I'll ever go back! This drone has amazing reaction, Great speed, Awesome Distance, perhaps the best features are the video quality it produces along with the video modes! I'm just the average drone guy I'd say, bringing it hiking, to the ocean, etc, for fun. Maybe try to do something cool with it... This drone can produce professional quality photos for anyone. It's easy to fly as well. You kind of have to play with the app a second. Changing where the pics/videos are stored, etc (normal stuff). Love how you don't have to hook it up to a computer anymore to update. It automatically asks/let's you know when you turn your drone on along with the controller... Overall awesome experience. Would definitely recommend.

    This drone is Small but Mighty! I am a professional Drone Photographer in Arizona and put this to the test for the last 2 months. Photos- The camera looks small but in packs in the tech! The 4K video is truly stunning and can compete with higher end drones.\ Design- The Design of this is out of this world, the size which easily fits in your hand or pocket is a modern marvel. The arm and blades fold seamlessly into the body making it amazing for you adventures out there. Ease of use- This can be used by everyone from beginners to Advance users, Everyone will have a use. Just connect your phone and make sure everything is updated and your good to fly! Battery Life- It runs about 17 Minutes for me and I fly fast. With the Fly more bundle you get the extra batteries and charging hub. Charging batteries is quick and easy, only about 45 min to charge one! If you have questions I would be more then Happy to help! I have been a DJI user for over 4 Years now and I can say this is the best yet!

    This drone has everything you need! If you want to fly it for fun or if you want to take outstanding cinematic footage. I'm fascinated with how it handles the wind, the 4K camera quality, the built-in quickshot modes, battery life, the built-in obstacle avoidance system (sensors in the back, front and bottom!) And the the 3D mapping that helps with the autonomous fly mode. If you are looking for the best drone under a thousand dollars, do yourself a favor and get the Mavic Air, you will not regret it!! The only thing I found as cons is that it cannot be charged via USB. However, that's not a show stopper for me since I already have a power bank with portable AC outlet.

    I purchased the Go pro karma drone twice before the recall and after ... yess I know whyy... simply in my opinion the go pro had a better all around camera to me then the Mavic pro ... but then heard it was discontinued... was 1 day into purchasing the mavic pro then The Mavic air released glad I took this into consideration best Drone and go pro like footage ( wayy better ) . All around obstacle avoidance is a plus. Most of all that 4k so smooth and crisp. Get it !! Its 800 dollar price tag is well worth it With a remote unlike spark.. ( and 4k and goes 42 mph in sport mode ...) ... Mavic air ... if it had better battery life it would be the Mavic pro 2 Love thing and you would too !! BUY IT!! And no Best buy didn’t pay me for this review!
