Can you expect the DJI Mavic Air?
DJI, with its long-standing tradition of designing and developing some of the most innovative drones, is set to release another new product, the DI Mavic Air. According to the latest rumors circulating the company, it is set to make announcements for the release of some of its latest products, mainly the DJI Mavic Air drone, on the 23rd of January, at New York. Reports from IT giant Intel also point to the possibility that the Chinese drone makers will announce at least 2 drones.
Experts predict that DJI is set to announce the release of the long-awaited Mavic Pro 2 and the significantly smaller, DJI Mavic Air. Although the Mavic Pro 2 is expected to be an upgraded version of its predecessor, DJI Mavic Pro, the Mavic Air is thought to be a smaller, entry-level drone designed especially for beginners. Experts are of the opinion that the Mavic Air will have an innovative and new streamlined design, and can resemble the popular DJI Phantom 4 Pro in profile and styling.
The Mavic Air is said to be the drone which will fill the large gap between the company’s previous entry-level drone, DJI Spark, and the larger and professional, DJI Mavic series drones. It is expected to have features which will resemble the Mavic series of drones, along with a new front-end obstacle avoidance system.
As the tagline on the invitation to the January event suggests ‘Adventure Unfolds’, speculations are rife suggesting that the ‘Adventure’ here refers to the lighter, smaller and more advanced Mavic Air and the ‘Unfolds’ part refers to the impressive portability to be provided with this drone. The Mavic Air is expected to be compact, such as the Spark model from earlier. Rumors also suggest that this mini drone might finally have a stronger water-resistant technology, allowing it to be used in significantly heavier rainfall as well.
Our experts expect the Mavic Air to have a somewhat shorter flight time as compared to the original Mavic however it could fly longer than the Spark mini drone. According to our experts, the Mavic Air can have a flight time from 20 to 25 minutes in total, and can be flown to a distance of 2000 meters (similar to the Spark) or as much as an impressive 7000 meters (similar to that of Mavic Pro). It could also feature the innovative Lightbridge technology, instead of the WiFi FPV, which is seen in the Spark mini drone.
The camera of the Mavic Air is expected to be having a 12 MP sensor, mounted on a three-axis gimbal.
The price of the DJI Mavic Air could be as less as USD 599 (with remote control), or as much as USD 799 (including battery and weather-proof backpack carry case), with the Fly More package.
