    I expected more

    So this supposed to be the best small 4K drone and much more quiet than the Pro morel, but unfortunately not entirely. The footage quality is great, and I shot on auto and on s-log everything looks nice so I am super happy with that. The sound on the other hand is obnoxious. It may be quieter but because it has different pitch you can hear this drone for forever, and thats just annoying as pro model sound would disparate quite quickly when you go up. with this one I went to max altitude allowed and I still could hear it. So I hope they are going to release new silent propellers soon. Besides the fact that my drone came with a defected GPS unit I think this drone still worth the money and accessories in the Fly More combo are great. I would still recommend it just keep in mind its not as quite as you expect.

    I like that the Mavic Air is so small and compact. The drawback is that you need to carry additional batteries because each battery gets you a good 15 minutes or so of flying time. Make sure to update the firmware and charge up your batteries the night before you plan on flying it. Unless you have good cellular service where you are going to fly, it would be best to update the firmware while connected to a strong WiFi signal. Or else, you might not be able to fly it at all. One annoying thing about the Mavic Air is that you have to calibrate it almost every time you turn it on after a long time of non usage. BUY EXTRA BATTERIES!!!!

    Basically it's the DJI Spark 2.0

    The Mavic Air is basically the DJI Spark 2.0. I was extremely happy with my Spark but the upgrade to 4k is what made me go after the Mavic Air, not to mention the backwards obstacle avoidance. It's a very cool and feature rich little drone. The obstacle avoidance is incredible. the only thing that would make this better is side avoidance sensors and the ability to us APAS while in smart/programmed modes. Before you buy make sure you know what you'll be using it for. If it's a few times a week get the Mavic Air, if it's less than that and just for vacation or something, save money and get the Spark.

    Full featured little quad

    This thing is priced like much bigger drones but it is packed with features and very responsive in a very small package. Auto hover is extremely stable indoors or outdoors and flies well in moderate winds and light rain. It was difficult to navigate in tight spaces with obstacle avoidance on but I got around it by flying sideways . The only real gripe I had was it was a little louder than I had hoped for and I wish they had given an option for recording audio. Also be aware that i had some wifi interference flying in residential areas but there's plenty of other reasons we shouldn't do that anyways.

    Amazing tech and a great price

    The Mavic Air is the drone to buy for portability and included tech. The sensor system is works well and very few drones at this price point have back sensors. It folds incredibly small and it's easy to transport. The only reason I have 4 starts instead of 5 is because it seems to have more issues with signal interference and disconnects than my Spark. I believe that this is something that will improve with time given that there were similar issues with the Spark in the past. Otherwise, there is no better buy for a semi pro drone at this time.

    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.

    I wanted a quad that I could stuff into my backpack when riding my motorcycle. I decided on the Mavic Air. I'm glad I did. It is easy to operate (I did read the manual) and it all fits nicely into my backpack. Video and picture quality is great. Make sure to check for firmware updates before going out for a flight. It could take a while to complete in the field. I recommend reading all the manuals to have the best figh flight experience.

    Nice drone... with quirky problems

    This is my second drone. Besides the Mavic Air I also own a Phantom 3 Advanced. I love the size and many improvements over the Phantom 3 but the two issues I have are: 1. Difficult to calibrate compass. This seems to be a known problem; just google "mavic air calibration errors." 2. Location of SD card. You need tiny fingers or a tweezers to remove. This issue is also well known. In spite of these problems, I still would purchase the mavic air again.

    OMG! It is so much fun to fly!! The pictures are amazing, easy to use and fits in my backpack without taking up much room. It does not due well in gusty winds as my phantom 4 but still a great drone. My main reason for purchase was to have a drone that was light, portable and of course take great photos to take hiking or fly after work for fun.....it did not disappoint!

    Most of the time it's flawless

    This is my first drone, so I'm certainly no expert but so far it's been a blast to fly and the video quality is stunning. Both 4k and 1080p/120p look fantastic. My only complaint is that it's freaked out (for lack of a better term) twice on me where it either wouldn't want to land or it tried to land in a lake. Not great, but it recovered and I was able to land safely both times.

    Flies easily and lightweight but complicated

    The DJI Mavic Air is lightweight and compact and can be packed nicely for my Round the world tour. It is so easy to fly! But it is complicated especially at first to understand the instructions and how all the pieces work together. The app is complicated too. I’m struggling with simple things like knowing when it’s recording. Plus I think it has a ton of features that are difficult to understand and learn how to use. Simplify DJI!

    This combo is everything you need to get started. Besides you will want to get a miniSD card. It isnt needed to fly the drone but will be needed to store pics and videos. It was easy to setup and get flying if you follow the instructions and watch a few videos. Really easy to fly. If you have ever played video games it will be a breeze. Takes really good pictures and videos. Just all around fun.

    Compact and very ezy to use , we are using it when we go in our over sea trips . It takes very clear and vivid pictures and the same with the video . The only thing that it needs some improvement in is the flying time on one battery charge but over all this is a very good product and I recommend it to all my friends

    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.

    When you by the drone there is so much more that you need before you can even think about flying it. No instructions or information. You need to research everything on line and there are several other items you need to buy. I don’t think anyone buying a Mavic drone is prepared for what is needed. But once you have researched and practiced, it’s a blast.

    Easy and fun to fly

    So this is a good drone for beginners. It literally flies itself and has a fair amount of “failsafe” measures and makes sure you’re covered in the end. Range can be a bit sketchy so I’d recommend a Mavic Pro 2 if you’re looking for distance. But this little drone can get the job done form the photography aspect and the learning aspect.

    the Air is a ton of fun to fly and has enough "serious" features that I don't regret flying it when I come along something worth recording. It is easy to fly and like I said a lot of fun. I give it 4 stars because DJI forces some things on you like no fly zones that are not always accurate and no way to manually put it in ATTI mode.

    We had to exchange our first Drone due to a software issue - only reason for the 4 starts. Best Buy was great handling this exchange and there were not any issues with that. Since the exchange our second one has worked without any problems. The Fly More package has a lot of extras that are really nice to have. This drone takes great pictures!

    I upgraded from the DJI Spark. The Mavic Air has a much greater range and is super fast. My one complaint is with the batter life. I am only averaging about 14 minutes on flying time (in sport mode). I get a good 3-4 minutes longer with the Spark. I have read that DJI has improved batter life with firmware.

    Good Drone to Learn With

    For the most part the drone flies well. The battery life isn't quite as good as listed (15 to 18 minutes rather than 21 and it keeps telling me I have an excessive payload when I have none at all but it doesn't seem to effect the flying (could be why the battery life isn't as good too). Overall, it is a good unit for a beginner.
