    DJI Mavic Air Announcement


    DJI Mavic Air is the next, even more compact, version of the DJI Mavic Pro drone, which is possibly going to revolutionize the drone market once again. The latest Mavic links both the advanced functions of Mavic Pro with the compact construction of Spark.

    The 3-axis gimbal, which is newly-designed and even more compact, is responsible for image quality in Mavic Air. It is supposed to offer smoother movements. The camera, equipped with the 12Mp 1/2.3’’ sensor, and the lens with the equivalent of 24mm f/2.8, have been mounted on the gimbal.

    With the use of the device, one will be able to make films in 4K, but only with the speed up to 30f/s. In HD, we will have the available speed of 120f/s. The films are saved with the bitrate of 100MB/s.

    When it comes to the new functions, now we can make spherical panoramas and the Boomerang function, with the use of which the drone flies around a given object like a boomerang, is also available. The drone can be controlled using gestures with the use of the Smart Capture function.

    All these things are assisted by the improved system of active object-tracking, which detects up to 16 moving objects at once, and 6 cameras placed in the front, at the back, and on the bottom of the device, which support the obstacle detection and avoidance system.

    As the first drone in history, DJI Mavic Air also possesses 8GB of built-in memory, which is surely going to be helpful when we forget our memory card or if the card becomes full.

    The parameters of the device are impressive: the maximum speed of 68 km/h, the possibility of flying up to 5000 meters and the effective range of 2.5 km. The flight time is 21 minutes. It places the new drone in between Mavic Pro and Spark.

    However, the greatest asset of the new DJI device is its construction. With the dimensions of 168×184×64mm and 168×83×49mm after assembly and the weight of 430g, it may be hidden in the jacket’s pocket without any problem. The remote control has also been re-designed, and it’s even more compact now.



    3). DJI Mavic Air 


    DJI Mavic Air will be available on sale in January and it will cost $800, which is a very attractive price in comparison to the offered functions.

      Many of you may not surprised with the fact that DJI presents a new drone every half a year. This time it’s Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, which looks exactly like its predecessor which looked exactly like its predecessor which looked…
      Still, Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is significantly different than the previous model – its blades are 60% quieter and the data transmission is handled by OcuSync. The rest is the same as in the predecessor which was the same as...

      1). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      The data transmission system Lightbridge, used for instance in Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced, has been replaced by a newer solution, OcuSync HD. OcuSync is supposed to ensure data transmission for a distance of 7km and to automatically choose the band between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. OcuSync can also be connected to DJI Goggles RE.

      2). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      As has been mentioned before, most of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 specification remained unchanged in comparison to its predecessors. The drone is equipped with the 20Mp, 1’’ Exmor R CMOS sensor and a lens, with the focal length equivalent of 24 mm and the light of f/2.8, adapted for the use in aerial photography. The optical system consists of 8 elements placed in 7 groups, among which 2 are aspherical lenses.

      3). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 
      Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 registers videos in 4K with the speed of 60f/s and it uses H.264 codec. The image is recorded with the use of D-Long Cine-D profiles, which enable further modifications of the material. Similarly, the images are saved in Adobe DNG.

      The FlightAutonomy system is yet another thing which won’t be new to the owners of the older DJI drones. Thanks to the system, they will not have to take their new “toy” from the tree or collect its fragments from around the tree. The ActiveTrack system is supposed to ensure that our drone tracks us, or other moving objects, in a way planned in advance by, for instance, making circles around the object.

      4). DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 - Specification Comparison
      People willing to buy DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will have to pay $1500. The dedicated controller costs $300 and a set consisting of the drone, the controller and DJI Goggles costs $2200.
      After the Mavic Air, DJI is rumored to announce a new Mavic Pro 2 that will replace the current DJI Mavic Pro model. The new drone is expected to be an “upsized” Mavic Air with a new larger camera.
