    This is my first real drone. I've had a couple that were very difficult to fly. The Mavic Air is very easy to use, with a good camera and easy to use app on the phone. I was so confident in using it after a few test flights I took it out over lake Michigan to get some video of a local lighthouse. Very happy I spent the extra money for the extra batteries and case.

    Nice but very Noisy

    Have MavicPro, and many other larger Birds... the MavicAir is extremely noisy in comparison. More people notice it in the air than other Drones. The radio and radio transmission not as nice as MavicPro. Camera may be spec'ed better but I personally feel MavicPro is better in many ways. The smaller size is convenient, but I feel it's more susceptible to wind.

    This was my first drone purchase, and I had never flown one before. Super intuitive to fly. Beginner mode helps you keep it close by to start. Flew it over 4,000 feet away in Alaska over the Prince William Sound with ease. Incredible footage. Would definitely recommend extra batteries though, on top of the three this comes with as you will burn through them pretty quickly

    3rd drone. Should have bought it 1st. The product is almost idiot proof. We were able to fly it immediately with no issues. Great camera. Easy controls.

    Great drone. Portability is superb. Very easy to fly. The only issue that I've found is that the flimsy connection cable from the controller to the phone is weak and prone to stop working, which results in Aircraft Disconnect warnings that are unnerving. I've replaced that with a more robust cable (USB to USB-C) running instead from the USB port to the USB-C in the phone...and the issue has gone away. Otherwise, a great overall drone.

    This drone has an awesome camera and once you learn how to drive it, which takes quite a bit of practice, it is a lot of fun! Unfortunately for me I like a manual that actually tells me something, but this doesn't come with that. There's a manual, its just useless. I have to go to YouTube and search for how to use all the features. I couldn't even figure out how to charge the remote until I searched it up on YouTube - and I'm not the only one. But the product itself is awesome.

    The Mavic Air is a great drone for a beginner or experienced drone pilot. The camera takes great photos and video. I was a little concerned about it using Wi-Fi for flight connections but I have had no problems with flying it up to almost a mile away. You for sure want the fly more bundle, the extra batteries (2) and other accessories are a definite must. Don't forget the memory card the built in 8 gb of internal memory is nice but no where near enough. Overall a great drone.

    Loving The Camera

    I actually purchased cheaper drones, trying to get great pictures and video. I was wasting my time and money. I've loved this DJI Mavic Air since I first took it up and took pictures and video and I'm amazed at what you get in this fly more package. I'm now hooked on dronies and video shots I could never get without this product. We ride motorcycles and the shots I've taken so far are priceless to me. I'm not very computer savvy or electronically intelligent but this has been a breeze to learn and the support forums are awesome. Be Blessed and enjoy this product when you make that purchase.

    Easily the best small drone on the market. Has more tech in it than it's big brother too. Easy to fly and difficult to crash. Very fast as well. Great photos and video. A lot of camera features and fly modes. And the best part is you can stick it in your pocket.

    Pro Quality in a small Package

    This is a great little drone with some amazing features including obstacle avoidance, hand gestures, 3 axis gimbal and 4k 100mbps camera, active track and quick shots. So why did I only give 4 stars? For some reason, I've had to calibrate the compass for every flight even from the same location. This is a total pain and if calibration fails, the bird will not fly. I could go 200 miles with my old Phantom 3 Standard and didn't have to re-calibrate. DJI needs to fix this in a firmware update. I'm going to give it a recommendation but would check forums for a fix before purchasing.

    Incredible Footage, Easy to Fly

    I love this! I've taken it out about five times now. It's a pain to get set up (firmware updates, calibrating the compass, connecting remote control to drone) but once you've gotten through this learning curve, it is FUN! I use it for video. The 4K camera is great, gimbal does a good job of keeping everything steady, even in windy conditions. I am not good at piloting drones (lost a cheap one to the trees a year or two ago) but this is VERY INTUITIVE. Easy to use and easy to keep out of danger. Highly recommended!

    If you are into filming and traveling this is the drone for you. It is extremely portable and tiny. It fits in your backpack with no problem. It has a great gimbal and camera. Many quickshot options to take awesome footage. Thumbs up! Phantom 3 Upgrade. Very happy with it!

    All parts of this product are great. The bag is a little strange to me, but you can fit the whole kit in it. And if you use an iPad with it, certain holders will break down small enough to fit in the bag too, but without the prop guards. Flies great, fast little flying machine. The camera looks awesome, I'm new to it all so I'm learning more about camera stuff every day. It doesn't have the greatest range, since it works off of WiFi. You'll get a lot of interference from power lines and all that. But still can go pretty far, so this isn't the drone for you if you wanna go as far away as possible and still have control. Sensors work to avoid crashing, the built in automations are fun and work pretty well too. Overall a great "higher class" intro to the drone world for a new pilot. Worth it.

    Fairly new to flying drones. Have a stunt drone I practiced with. Bought the DJI Mavic Air after looking at many reviews. Enjoy flying, very easy to get started. Great camera for photos or video. Lots of programmed options. Basically the drone is fool proof if you fly responsibility. Highly recommend. Bought on sale from Best Buy. My favorite store.

    This is my second Drone. I bought my first Drone a few years back when they first came out, and basically all it had was GPS and I had to get really good at guessing. Lots of fly always, but luckily I was able to find it. Ready for an upgrade I did a ton of research and found the DJI Mavic Air to be the right Drone for me. Wow, I am so glad I made this purchase. What a piece of technology. Using my cell phone and attaching it to the controller, I no longer have to guess. I can see the airspace limitations following FAA rules. I can also se my altitude, speed, direction and best of all, exactly the view from the 4K camera to film video and pictures. The return home feature works perfectly. I can not say enough about this Drone. Having 3 batteries is a definite plus! Flight time is about 20 minutes.

    Best All Around For Beginners And Pros

    Never really flew a drone before so I was really skeptical paying this much for a first drone. After reading a lot of good reviews I ended up buying one anyway and boy I did not regret it. After reading just a small bit of instructions and updating software it was ready to fly. And fly it did. So effortlessly and easy that you really have to try for it to crash. It's unbelievable how stable it is even on a breezy day. The software is loaded with all kind of settings so it took me a couple days familiarizing to adjust what is best. This drone comes with front, back, and bottom sensors for peace of mind flying. It has sport mode(faster and fun) to turn off all sensors automatically once you become better. I have already made a drone video of our family at a beach and everyone was impressed of the quality from it. I was able to fly this pretty far at some point it was couple miles out. Make sure the mobile device is plugged in with the remote and not use WiFi as I found its range very limited. I went with DJI as they are well known to make quality drones and I'm very satisfy thus far. Pros- DJI Is A Proven Drone Company Good 4K Camera Decent Battery Life(21mins) High Quality Built Very Sharp Looking Very Easy To Fly Cons- Cost High For A First Drone Software Needs An Update

    I bought the Mavic Air a week before heading out for two video and photo projects in Florida. I already carry a lot of camera gear, so wanted a lightweight, high-quality-images drone. At 1 pound and 4K video files, Mavic Air fit the bill. I'm not a techie, so I practiced five days in a row before leaving. There's no actual Owner's Manual, though there is a Quick Start guide included. Online DJI tutorials don't explain how to calibrate the system, yet the drone won't fly unless it IS calibrated. Fortunately, several Mavic Air users have filled in the gaps with their own how-to YouTube videos. How did we perform? Thanks to my operator error, I flew the drone right into an orange tree on the second flight. Had to climb up to retrieve it. Chipped off a piece of one propeller (I highly recommend 1) purchasing DJI Care for $89/year and 2) using the propeller guards, which prevented more damage) and I flew it again without replacing that one propeller. Buy the Fly More package -- several spare propellers included. On the fourth flight on a different day, I flew the drone right into a tall palm tree. A park ranger fished it out of the fronds with a long bamboo pole. The pole slipped and the droned crashed several feet onto the ground. No damage! Flew it again within a minute. This thing is a champ! And I'm very pleased with the video footage as well as the stills. Worth every penny. By the end of my assignment, I was much more comfortable with the Mavic Air. I think we bonded : @@@@@@@
