    I was searching around for a couple weeks reviewing and reading the pros and cons for various drone manufacturers. I finally settled on this DJI MAVIC AIR. Small, lightweight, portable and much more. After a couple hours of flight time, I still agree that I made a good decision. The Mavic Air is a 2018 Release. There are not a ton of accessories available as of now but soon there will be. Only advice I can give is that I wish I had bought the Fly More Combo. You save a lot of money that way. Even though I purchased extra batteries and a case separately, I still love my drone.

    Pros: -Video and image quality are spectacular. -very easy to fly, especially for beginners -compact, perfect for a mobile kit. Fits in my day pack, or airline personal item no problem. -adds professional look to your portfolio instantly. -great automatic features Cons -forced to use the wall charger, or buy an expensive mobile charger to get a charge in the field. You CANNOT charge the batteries in-body using USB-C. Absurd product decision. -Must have a perfect landing zone (not really a con, but there is not much ground clearance on this little thing). -Descent is slow -must buy extra batteries if in the field due to lack of usb-c power delivery (see above). In other words, power bricks won't help ya. Regardless of cons, this is the best first drone, and worth the extra money for portability and image quality over the spark, and Mavic Pro first gen.

    I initially bought the Spark and continuously had issues with it disconnecting from the controller. I had tried 2.4 and 5.8Ghz and experienced the same issue. I returned it and got the Mavic Air. So far I have had no issues with disconnects. It has been a great drone. Very stable and does well with a little higher wind where the Spark did not do so well. The only issue I have had was my fault. I was having issues with 4K video being very choppy which ended up being an older SD card. Make sure you get a fast SD or you will have issues with 4K. Other than that I have enjoyed flying it.

    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.
