DJI Mavic Air – Another DJI Awesome Drone

We all know the many different things that those mini-helicopter looking gadgets, called drones, can help us with. From photography perspective to special missions, exploring and etc., drones are the toys that we can rely on. They really developed through the last couple of years and I’m looking forward to seeing more awesome additions to this aspect of the smart market in future. For now, the leading company in this sphere, that goes by the famous name of DJI, does everything to stay on top, and they surely do it well enough.

Along with the DJI Phantom, Spark, Pro Platinum, now this line-up has another addition – the Mavic Air. Instead of making this one more expensive because it’s the newest model out there, the company decided to set it off for $800, which is a great price for a drone of this kind. It appears to find a balance between DJI’s beginner-aimed Spark drone and its pricier, but more technically capable- Mavic Pro.

SImilarboth of those devices, the Mavic Air is small—at 168x184x64mm, it’s a bit larger than the Spark but smaller than the Mavic Pro. Its arms can be folded inward, which should make it relatively easy to pack and transport, which is essential for drones because they are mainly used by adventurous people, who often tend to go on trips. Its design doesn’t stray too far from the past, either, with the rounded, swooping lines of its chassis punctuated by stable and reliable, Spark-like propeller arms.

It weighs only 430grams, which is much lighter than the previously released Mavic Pro and a bit heavier than the Spark one. Its speed is somehow in the middle of what they already offer and it could develop ~43 miles per hour when set in the special “sports mode”. The flying range from the base (the point where the controller is positioned) is 2.5 miles, which is fair enough and by all those abilities, DJI eliminates other companies from the competition for the top spot.

Specifications of the model are also balanced, considering the rest of the already mentioned line-up. The drone carries a 12-megapixel camera with a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor and a 24mm-equivalent F2.8 lens. As with all DJI drones, that camera comes integrated into the device. Notably, like the Mavic Pro, it’s capable of capturing video in 4K up to 30 frames per second, with 1080p video up to 120fps. It can also take DNG photos. Video from the Spark, by contrast, maxed at a lower 1080p resolution and 30fps. A USB-C port and 8GB of internal storage come built into the Air as well.

DJI is already on top of the market and I don’t think that they’ll leave the spor anytime soon. It holds 80% of the whole business, so judging by the numbers, we can see that they do pretty well and learn from what they should and shouldn’t do. I’ll drop a few lines about the incredible Phantom 3 and Mavic Pro, which will let you get a better perspective at what’s the company about.

-DJI Mavic Pro– The design is incredible on this one and it literally could fit in your backpack and leave space to store some other stuff inside. When folded, it literally has the size of a bottle of water.With the OcuSync transmission system, you can fly in range of 7km with speed up to 64km/h, or for as long as 27-minutes, before a charging’s required.

While flying, you can smoothly shoot up videos at a true 4K quality, as the drone takes incredibly balanced flight, so the captured video won’t be shaky at all. For even easier use the obstacle avoidance, combined with sensor redundancy, increases flight safety and reliability. There’s also a GPS system integrated that always lets you know where the DJI Mavic Pro is located, so the only thing you have to worry about is the 27-minute flying time limit.

DJI Phantom 3– The name of this device is pretty known to the fans of drowns and this actually is the third sequel to the Phantom series. The DJI Phantom 3 SE model is a pretty good traditional-phantom series looking drone and is packing great software, hardware and camera for a crazy price tag.

The design of this drone is beautiful, lightweight and aerodynamic, which allows you take a different view of every place you decide to take a flight around. It has the exact and familiar to the Phantom series looks, with the camera attached in the centre, in the centre so that it could serve as a natural weight while flying and also be protected by the sides on the left and right.The performance of this cheap version drone is incredible, highly welcomed by photographers and adventurers.

This Phantom’s newly enhanced Wi-Fi video transmission system allows you to fly farther while maintaining a crystal-clear live camera view. The Phantom 3 SE offers reliable control and image transmission from up to 4 km away, which means that all you have to do is to focus on getting the best shots possible with the 4K camera.The Phantom 3 SE flies at up to 35 mph (57 kph), delivering the excitement of fast flight even in strong winds. One of the best things that I love about this drone is that it hovers steadily. The calibration process takes 2 minutes and then it will precisely hover in place and wait for your next command. This gives you ample time to plan, adjust your camera, and capture shots that match your creative vision.
