    Great product!

    I always buy my replacement propellers from Best Buy. Convenient to order and easy to pick up.

    Quality is always great and comes with everything you need expect for the smaller screw driver.

    Good Quality, must have item.

    Definitely buy extra props for the Mini 2, as a result of shaving weight to get the quad to under 249g the props aren't as sturdy as the other models and should be changed with a higher frequency.

    Keep an eye on the condition of your props, I bought 3 extra sets because I fly frequently.

    A must have for frequent fliers

    I love this thing, it's lightweight and reasonably sized making it easy to bring along on trips. It's much better than charging batteries individually by swapping them out. Keep in mind that this still only charges your batteries one by one.

    Tons of Fun!

    Fun and easy to use. I bought this as a birthday gift for my boyfriend and he hasn't been able to put it down. It does take some finessing at first, but once you get the hang of it then it's all good. I do recommend looking up your local area's drone laws/rules just to make sure you fly in approved areas. Definitely lots of fun.

    Nice drone for a nice price

    No this drone doesn't compete with $600+ price drones on the market but it does hold its own for the price point. Good for learning on as others have said. Will sway when there's strong wind so you need to be mindful of conditions. You won't cry though if you get this stuck in a tree and can't get it down before a torrential downpour.

    A new evolution in imagery and fun

    I really got into drone flying several years ago, with DJI's release of the Phantom 3 Pro. The freedom and the new video and pictures that I was able to capture, were absolutely amazing.

    BUT it's size and weight was a limitation... but no more. This is the upgrade that I have been waiting for.

    The DJI Air 2S is an entirely new bird, and really is the size of a bird.

    The first time setup, takes about 1 hour. To get it unpackaged, first battery charged up, and to get all the firmware updates done. Gives you some time to just admire this little thing.

    It took me a few minutes to find the iPhone connecting wire.. .it is there, but it is pre-installed in the controller. Right where it will be used. I was able to add my iPhone 11 Pro, right to the controller with no problem. Fits like a glove, and really is the perfect size to companion with the very light and compact controller.

    The elegant design of just being able to unscrew the joysticks, and stash them away... and every detail about making this controller compact, but very function was well thought out. You have your X, Y, Z axis controllers right where they should be on your two thumbs. Your index fingers control the angle of your camera, and the shutter on the camera.

    Extra options to use the auto-return to home feature and landing. This is a great feature DJI adds, that will return your drone to where it took off.

    Now for the drone itself. So compact... about the size of 4 bananas 2x2 (no joke, that is how big this is). compact and small, but unfolded it is ready to go. The props are simple press in and twist. One negative, is the camera cover. It is a little awkward to get on and off, and I am always concerned I am going to break the camera. I have gotten used to it, but still it is temperamental.

    The battery is compact and long lasting. I was able to fly over 15 minutes, without even being concerned on the battery. It snaps right in, and there is no mistaking if it is in or not, as it is also the power button.

    While the drone is not silent, it isn't overly loud. You are not sneaking up on anyone, but you are not going to be a big disturbance either.

    The full inclusive kit is AWESOME. Comes with the carrying case, a total of 3 batteries, A Serial charging kit (so you can charge all the batteries in a row without swapping), 3 full sets of props, camera filters, the controller, and charger. It also has the wires for Android and other popular devices.

    Now comparing this to my P3P. Just look at the pictures and see the size different. The P3P was a full bulky backpack, and wasn't very convent. This new one, I am going to be able to take camping with me and out with the scouts, and just bring along on trips and have with me.

    The physical size... this is where the Air2S had a little challenge. Over the last two weekend, we had wind conditions. So I limited the flying, as it was causing the drone to work really hard to keep it's position which it did. The video was still spot on and smooth, and the picture didn't wobble around.

    The speed, this little baby can move. While it isn't as fast as a racing drone, it can move... it can go up and down in a blink, and change directions on a dime. Experienced flyers are going to have a good time with some of the new maneuvers.

    This generation of drone also have crash avoidance systems and warnings. While I didn't have to engage them, they did start to yell at me I was getting a little close to things.

    The DJI software is also top notch. at one point while flying, a low flying aircraft came into range, and the software warned me... BEFORE I could hear the aircraft. While I was still well under 400ft, I found it awesome that I have that option now and can utilize it for better safety all around.

    I am looking forward to the next many months to push this little fantastic system to the limits, and see what else it can do.

    From taking landscape, artistic, functional, and all sorts of other imagery... this is the drone you have been waiting for.

    Terrific Photo/Video Quality and FUN

    For anyone interested in flying drones, whether to simply fly recreationally or to take videos and photographs, the Air 2S is the current best of both worlds. While my previous favorite drone was the Mini 2, in no large part because of its small size, and cost, the Air 2S surpasses it on features at a fair price and the imaging quality is simply miles better. Obviously the 2S is more money up front, I think the benefits gained justify the cost. I’ll also go ahead and add, do yourself a favor and get the fly more package. You’ll end up needing the additional accessories down the road (i.e. batteries, carrying case, extra propellers), so you might as well get them all upfront.

    IN THE BOX

    For such a small box, there’s a lot of stuff in there. You’ll find most everything in the carry bag that it comes with. There’s a battery in the drone, a charging station, power cord, small USB, a USB charger that connects into one of the battery slots of the charging station, and a power cord. There’s a smaller box that has a bunch of propellers, filters for the lens, extra thumbsticks for the controller, and two batteries. Honestly, it’s about everything you would ever need.

    I wish the carrying case had a hard shell, but I can’t be too picky.

    INITIAL SETUP

    For those that are new to DJI drones, the setup is pretty straightforward, but can be a little time consuming. Not hours, but don’t just think you can go somewhere and start flying immediately. The first step is to download the DJI app. I have Android (Google Pixel 4 XL) and the app is not available on the Google Play Store (for reasons I don’t fully understand). But if you perform a Google search for “DJI Fly app,” you’ll be directed to the DJI website where you can download it. You might get a pop-up about downloading an app not from the Play Store, but just ok that action.

    First thing you should do is charge all the batteries. Good news is that you can plug all three batteries into the charger at once. The bad news is, they don’t all charge at once. Once the first is done charging, the next is charged, and then the third. It’s not a big deal, but again, something to remember before heading out to fly.

    From there you open up the app. You should have the newest version of the app. But you can always check the settings. It should download automatically.

    Next, you’ll need to update the drone itself. For me, the process took about 30 minutes. The app notifies you autmoatically, but if it doesn’t, you can go into the setting menu and check for up to date firmware, etc. Again, I mention this because you’ll want to do all of this with a strong Wi-Fi network BEFORE heading out somewhere to fly.

    FEATURES

    If you followed its release at all, you know it comes with a large imaging sensor (which means it takes in more light) and can record in 5K resolution (albeit 24 frames per second). Basically, the larger an imaging sensor the better the photo quality. It allows more light in and less noise in the images. It also records video in 4K at 60 frames per second, which in my opinion is the best. You can get smoother footage at lower resolutions, but I am really pleased with the 4K60FPS. There are a multitude of other photo and video options. I don’t generally adjust the photo settings (sticking with auto) because I’m not a professional, but will occasionally mess with the different frame rates on videos.

    One thing I’m happy to have in a drone, is the obstacle avoidance. There are sensors on the back, front, bottom (and sort of on the top) that will detect incoming objects and stop the drone. While you should always have line of sight on your drone, sometimes it’s far away and difficult to see, and you lose some depth perception. I’ve gotten my Mini 2 stuck in a tree before, but the Air 2s will detect it and stop. The controller even sends out an audible “beep” and lights the screen up with an orange bar depending on what side it detects the obstacle. This is something that is difficult to test, for fear of it not working, but I did try against a large tree and sure enough it came to a complete stop. I don’t know if it would detect a small branch. But you can feel a sense of comfort it’s not going to run into a building if you were say, flying close to it or inside a large structure.

    PHOTO QUALITY AND PHOTO FEATURES

    I think the photo AND video quality is top notch. I took some pictures out at a farm and some video and they turned out great, even with an overcast sky. The details were spot on. I’m a recreational flyer, so while I enjoy flying drones for the fun of it, so I’m not doing it professionally and I don’t always know what to do with my footage. I have edited them in Adobe, but that’s time consuming. Enter, Mastershots, probably my favorite new feature. It’s basically drone footage editing on the go. Once you get your drone in the air, you hit the button that looks like movie film (above the record button) which brings up some options (panorama, etc.) and includes Mastershots. Mastershots allows you to focus on an object (person or vehicle) and you can select things such as wide or medium, and what shot you want (rocket is my favorite) and the drone will fly itself and record a small clip. You can then pick some preselected templates and it will create a little montage with sound. A professional probably wouldn’t use this, but for amateurs like myself this is a fantastic feature that takes the editing out your footage.

    I also want to mention the panorama function. We all know about it, but it’s really cool to create an automatic panorama shot from high altitudes. Gives an entirely different viewpoint to landscapes that shooting on the ground just can’t replicate.

    EASE OF USE/FLYING EXPERIENCE

    There are three options, normal, cinematic and sport, which you can adjust with a switch directly on the face of the controller. Normal is just that, normal conditions. Cinematic makes the drone fly a little slower (hence, cinematic shots), and sport mode turns the speed up. I got the drone to hit 40 MPH, which in my opinion is pretty dang fast (relatively speaking). But you should know that the obstacle avoidance sensors are turned off when flying sport, so be careful!

    The flying experience and ease of flying is super easy. There’s a tutorial on the device that I recommend, but even if you don’t, just test flying it at first to get familiar with the controls will give you the experience you need. It’s super fun to fly a drone and DJI’s controller is super simple to use and understand. It’s just plain fun to fly one. My only minor gripe is that sometimes my drone wouldn’t turn left or right when stationary in the air. I think it was because I had the FPS setting turned on (where the camera “banks” with the drone while flying). But there were other times when it just wouldn’t move; I would have to gain altitude to get it to move. I can’t quite explain it any better, and it very well may have been user error (could have been the obstacle avoidance sensors that stopped it from moving).

    MISCELLANEOUS

    Just a few other things worth mentioning. I don’t have the FPS goggles, but I noticed there’s an option to fly with the camera in FPS view. When viewing on your screen, you’ll notice the camera tilt with the direction you turn. If you’re just filming, you may not want it (although, when done right you could create some cool footage). But it seems that you can buy the FPS goggles and have a FPS experience. You won’t be able to perform crazy acrobats like you could with the DJI FPS, it’s still cool to have that option. There is a small amount of onboard storage, so you can record directly to the drone, but you’ll definitely want to get a microSD card to make sure you don’t run out of space. For those new to drone flying, I do want to mention that you will need to register this drone with the FAA ($5 for three years). You’ll also have to place the FAA registration number directly on the drone itself. I won’t get into getting a license (it’s not necessary when flying recreationally) but just know that if you haven’t flown one before, you’ll want to read up on the rules.

    CONCLUSION

    This is by far the best drone I’ve flown. It’s easy to use, has lots of useful features, including a range of functions that aren’t overwhelming to newish users and best of all, it takes stunning photos and videos. The fly more kit is a must in my opinion, giving you pretty much every accessory you’ll likely need. Not to mention it’s so small when folded up. Not as small as the Mini 2, but it’s still amazing how compact it is.

    Insane photos, performance + newbie protections

    I'm a new drone enthusiast. Well new in the sense that my first drone was the Mavic Air 2, released in May of 2020; when the 2s came up for review, I was all over it. So, if there are a bunch of comparisons here, I’m sorry in advance.

    I took videos, comparing the 2 & 2s as I have both. They’re clearly labeled - so check them out if you are interested: https://bit.ly/32X70EB (YouTube / NH Techie). Feel free to comment on the videos because I can’t reply to comments on the review! I’ve also uploaded some Panoramas: https://bit.ly/32U9802 - just look for 2s in the name (there are Air 2 panos up there).

    In comparing the two from a novice’s perspective - I was a bit confused with the new version, primarily:

    Less flight time

    Fewer megapixels

    My first thought: surely there's something incorrect there.

    That led me to DJIs site for some explanation - and now it makes sense. To get 45MP on the Air 2, they played with the pixels (gotta love technology) due to a smaller (5/8) sensor. Now, with a full 1” sensor on the Air 2s, 20MP is expected to have much better zoom clarity and details.

    That being said -- I was excited for the larger sensor: more light, better image (is the theory).

    After unboxing, I charged each battery independently & not on the charging strip included in the “Fly More” bundle. If you’re new to this drone, it’s important because the batteries need to be “activated” and that doesn’t happen on the strip; you can cause yourself some support calls if you pop right to the charging strip and expect all to be well.

    While charging the first battery, I also charged the controller off the power brick & included USB-C cable. The controller took around 1h 40m (100 minutes) and the battery ... around 2 hours to finish.

    Now, the specs talk about a greater distance but lower flight time. I’m not Part 107 Certified, so I fly under a recreational provision and don’t go very far with it. Also, I have limited VLOS (visual line of sight), so I tend to fly around fields and close to the house so 14km isn’t really on the table for me.

    But, with 3 batteries in the “fly more package,” close to 30 minutes per battery is fine for me. I must note, that the 2s does eat more battery than the Air 2 in an equal fly time (see video!).

    The setup was quite annoying, to be honest. I fly a Mavic Air 2 and the Android version of the Go Fly App didn’t have any updates - therefore, the Air 2s didn’t show up as a drone that I could add.

    To sum it up, you have to go to the DJI site where and download an APK file and install it - totally non-standard & can’t get updates this way. This will be a major bump for those that aren’t so Android savvy outside of normal day-to-day phone usage.

    Play time --

    Flight Time - right on par with the expectations … around 30 minutes (or like 28ish).

    When I received the drone, there were some of the windiest and wettest days of the Spring - so I was in a bit of a risky rush to get some footage - but then the weather broke & I could get some good shots!

    As we can’t upload videos here, I got Best Buy’s approval to add all videos I take with the Drone to my YouTube channel (also noted above): https://bit.ly/32X70EB -- don’t forget about the images attached to the review.

    So now, onto the drone features themselves:

    Picture Clarity - so much cleaner than the Air 2 from the phone (controller) or in image/video. That 1” sensor makes a TON of difference. SCORE!

    They added 5k video -- which is great and takes a toll on battery life & the size of the videos. I took some screenshots to show side-by-sides; save some reading & do some looking.

    Some things to note:

    The “Normal” speed mode on the Air 2s is FASTER than the Air 2. So, making a move from one to the other - use the break as it gets going fast & takes longer to stop. Ask me how I know. ::cough:: flew into a bush ::cough::

    Software:

    Active Track is “OK” - it’s not really a sport drone, so if you’re not making sudden or fast movements it’ll work fine. Use it in an open area where trees won’t interfere with ‘who it’s tracking.’

    Panorama shots are quite slick! Via SkyPixel: https://bit.ly/32U9802

    The app and website are easy to use -- no complaints there.

    Pros / Nice changes from Air 2:

    Upward facing sensors - no more clipping tree branches

    Extra control sticks

    Air 2 batteries are upward-compatible

    New gimbal cover - easier to snap on / take off

    Orange tipped / low noise propellers

    Cons:

    Unexpectedly faster than the Air 2 (con? Eh, debatable).

    Control sticks rubber grip slips a bit as you’re tightening them on

    ~ $300 more than last year’s model

    App only available via DJI’s servers, not the Google Play Store (no auto-updates)

    Do I recommend this drone? Absolutely.

    Even if you’re ‘kind of’ interested in taking pictures / videos with a drone -- the “smart” pictures the Air 2s takes are fantastic. Add some more plus marks for the 4k/5k capabilities. Don’t discount the ability to Zoom during a video shoot, as it absolutely shows you things you didn’t know you could see.

    Love it. Get it. Enjoy it. Don't crash it.

    Magical object avoidance, great drone at any level

    The DJI Air 2S is an outstanding drone with features that beginners and professionals can both appreciate. Dropping the Mavic name, the Air 2S is the newest iteration featuring a sharp 1” camera sensor that can shoot up to 5.4K HD video and does 4k at 60fps to keep your footage smooth. The bigger sensor captures more light, enabling the camera to catch more detail and improve performance in low light settings. It’s capable of both HDR and 10 bit Dlog-M color profile, with an upgraded video transmission system that offers a sharp live feed with relatively low latency. In short, the camera puts it on the high end of the prosumer market and makes the Air 2S a good bridge to DJI’s professional drones. It’s part of what makes it an incredible drone, but that’s only a piece of the package, and not even the most impressive.

    DJI has been diligently working on making their drones smarter about avoiding obstacles and they’ve done something remarkable with the Air 2S. Adding upward obstacle avoidance sensors, it can now see up, down, forward, and backwards. This enables it to detect what’s around better and it works very, very well. This is key for obvious drone longevity reasons, but it’s what else DJI did with the sensors that makes this package amazing. As you watch the live video feed through the DJI Fly app, you can use your finger to quickly create a box around a subject for it to follow. It can be a car, bike, person, animal, and I don’t know what else, but it locks on quickly and can also be set to follow in parallel. I tested it out by having it follow me through a trail, but things got really impressive when I veered into the woods. There were branches everywhere and yet it managed to maneuver around them without getting snagged or making contact once. There were moments where I had to stop and wait for it, but to be fair, it was behind a lot of branches and I didn’t have to wait long for it to get out. I also had it follow me on a trail run, which was really cool seeing what kind of footage you can do solo. There’s also a new feature called “Mastershots”, which lets you select your subject, and then sets the drone out on a few pre programmed flight patterns to easily capture some professional looking footage.

    DJI really makes it easy to be a filmmaker (or at least look like one) and it’s these kinds of innovations and creator tools that put them at the top. Because not only is the Air 2S a great prosumer media drone, it’s also compatible with the FPV Goggles and motion controller, giving you the flexibility to fly in a totally different first person perspective. The remote also includes 3 speeds to suit your needs: Cine, Normal, and Sport. Cine moves slower for smooth, dramatic pans, while Sport disables all safeguard and obstacle avoidance sensors in the name of speed. In terms of flying time, each battery gives you a bit over 30 minutes, which is why I highly recommend the Fly More Combo. Outside of the drone and remote, it includes 3 total batteries, 4 ND filters, 3 sets of propellers, an extra set of controller joysticks, and a 3 way battery charger, all tucked away into a nice little carrying case. Having used the old DJI Phantom drones, it’s incredible how the whole Fly More combo fits in my backpack with room to spare. Being practical means it’s going to be used more and the compact size makes it very travel friendly.

    If you’re in the market for a video drone, it’s hard not to recommend the DJI Air 2S Fly More combo. It’s friendly enough to fly for all skill levels, with superb object avoidance, super far range, subject tracking, a professional quality camera, easy editing and publishing tools, and a bunch of extra parts to keep you flying for hours. I highly, highly recommend this drone kit.

    The Only Drone You Need

    I've been flying DJI drones since 2017. Started with the Mavic Pro, bought a Mini, then a Mavic Air last year. I didn't think it was possible for DJI to improve on the Mavic Air2, but they did. The first improvement is in the camera. Out of the box, the video quality is stellar. Colors are rich, video is clear, and, of course, the gimbal keeps it all steady as a rock. The 10-bit color depth and extended dynamic range more than makes up for the lack of HDR mode. L9w light pwrformance is light years ahead of the Air2. Flight controls are the same as they've always been, but DJI has made major improvements to the intelligent flight modes. Occusync 3.0 is amazing - I've yet to lose signal or see a glitch.

    If you're in the market for a drone, this one will give you the biggest bang for your buck.

    My favorite new toy

    This is the second drone that I’ve gotten from DJI and I have to say that it is by far my favorite. Ive had other drones before from less reputable brands and when I got my first real one, which was the Mavic Mini, I knew I could never go back to a lesser brand. You can pay $100-$200 for something just to play around with in the backyard with the kids, but if you really want something quality and has a ton of features, the AIR 2S is the way to go. Of course you can go with more expensive models, but for me, this one fit the bill.

    I must have checked my Fedex shipping status everyday waiting for this to come and when I got it, I broke it open to see all of the nice accessories that came with the Fly More Combo. The filters, bag, extra blades and batteries in the Fly More Combo makes this set worth getting over just the standalone Air 2S. That is unless you have the Air 2, which I believe everything is compatible with this one.

    Let me apologize in advance for the lengthy review, but there is just too much to write about to not give it, its just due. First, I’ll tell you about the camera sensor. I don’t really want to do a comparison review between this one and the Mavic Mini but I will just say the picture and video quality are heads and shoulders about any other model that I have flown. The clarity is unreal and the video quality is unparalleled to anything I’ve flown. I attached some photos that I took with the drone camera, which were taken on a very sunny day, without using any of the ND filters. Even without a filter, the quality is amazing. Had I not been so excited to get it up and running, I would have taken the time to figure out how to take off the filter and put a different one on that was more suitable for the conditions, but that is my fault for lacking the patience to read the user guide. The thing about these photos is that these were taken as JPEG’s, not RAW files. The RAW files are larger, but with that you get greater color detail and the ability to edit them afterwards using aftermarket software. The detail in those photos is incredible to say the least. The resolution and accurate color detail, particularly with darker shades was impressive and I was able to edit them even more using my MacBook Pro. I cant wait to take it to the Lake Erie and get some night shots of the city and the water. That is one thing I wish I could have done before writing this review.

    Next, I’ll talk about the obstacle avoidance. This version can detect obstacles in front, back, upward and downward which is great for beginners and helps when you are using ActiveTrack which is another awesome feature. I was at a local park with my drone and I met a guy who was walking with his wife and he was definitely a drone guy. I asked him if I could video him and his wife while the walked down the path so that I could evaluate the tracking feature. They were all for it and waved to the drone while I was filming. There were numerous trees around the park and the drone automatically avoided them and still maintained the camera on the couple. He came back and I showed him the video and he was impressed, just as much as I was.

    The AIR 2S has a range of roughly 6 miles, although I didn’t take it that far out, I never had any interference and had clear recording and photos throughout my first flight. This is probably due to the dual frequency (2.4ghz and 5.8ghz) that eliminates a lot of the interference.

    I really wish I could post some of the amazing videos that I shot with this drone. I mean the features are amazing. The Hyperlapse recording is one of my favorite features for toying around. I recorded my kids playing in the backyard. Going from the trampoline to the jungle gym and just running around and the detail and clarity were much more than I expected. I had fun also using the Sphere setting while recording. I will admit I need more practice with that, but I see some epic videos in my future with that feature. It shoots the video in a circle from the highest to lowest point and still maintains clarity.

    Although I was using an iPhone 11 with my controller and constantly found myself fighting with the brightness of the sun to really see what I was doing, I had a tremendous amount of fun tracking subjects and taking photos. The DJI Fly app is very intuitive and powerful. You can adjust all of the settings from maximum height and distance, to resolution, image type and various other settings. I touched the screen on my phone to select my sons running and recorded some good video. The gimbal automatically followed them and all I had to do was maintain control of the drone.

    Another great use that I found for this drone is taking aerial shots of our various rental properties. I had a new roof put on one of the houses a few months ago and I was able to fly above it and check out the work that was done. We had a decent storm come through after the roof was put on and I was able to see if there was any damage done and see the quality of their work.

    I can go on and on about how much I enjoy this new toy, but if you really want to see the benefits of it, you will really need to go out and get one. The only downside to using this drone in bright areas is using my phone. Although my phone has a decent display, it dampened my enjoyment a bit trying to see the screen. I would recommend getting the DJI Smart Controller if you are serious about using your drone. Its pricey and I’ve decided that I’m going to save up and purchase one. My neighbor has one for his Mavic Pro and FPV drones and he let me try it out and it is so much more superior than any phone that I can imagine using with the drone. I’ve already been dropping hints to my wife about Father’s day and my birthday coming up and what would be a great gift, so maybe I’ll get lucky. I wont hold my breath though.

    I truly cant give this thing high enough praise. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking into this as a hobby or profession. I didn’t speak about the registration or classes you need to take in order to use this for business purposes, but that information is readily available online.

    Awesome Drone + Camera hindered by Fly App

    Yup, it seems fitting that I, dronedad, should be reviewing the new DJI Mavic Air 2S! I've been flying DJI products since 2015, and I was excited to get my hands on this new piece of kit. As they continue to pour innovation and development into their Mavic Series; the smaller foldable portable drones, the quality of the cameras and control systems continues to improve. The Air 2S is a camera and feature upgrade from last years Air 2, which was touted at the time as THE drone to purchase for non professionals The Air 2, however, was hindered by an in camera stitching system to accomplish the reported 48mp, which didn't turn out quite as great as users hoped. The new Air 2S is sporting a similar, but not same 1" sensor clocking in at 20mp that is comparative to the Mavic 2 Pro and the Phantom 4 Pro. No global shutter, to be sure, but still a drastic upgrade in optics. After the first test flights I find the images to be clear and crisp, with some slight over saturation and colorization. Leaving the captured images looking clean and just slightly overly bright. If you're bothered by this, you're probably also someone who will be fixing it in some kind of post production software like Lightroom anyway. Video is the same way, and the bump up to 5.4k means playing back the videos is almost startlingly clear and clean, as long as you can find a machine that can handle them. 4k at 60fps is also a welcome addition.

    The drone itself is extremely small, and gets a respectable 31 minutes out of the tiny battery. Flight characteristics are nimble, stable, and quite easy to fly. The upgrades to the phone mounting system on the remote control, and continued inclusion of physical buttons are welcome additions that show why DJI has captured so much of this market. I do find myself often bumping these physical buttons however when mounting the phone, as there isn't a good way to place it in the holder without pressing them. One could get around this by mounting the phone before the remote and drone are powered up.

    The 2 biggest misses for me on the Air 2S are the lack of Remote ID, and the flight control software. Remote ID has been proposed and announced for long enough, that the Air 2S should have at least come with a disclaimer that it is software upgradeable to this commercial protocol at a later date. It's likely this is already true, but the inclusion of ADS-B sensing without confirming remote ID compliance is either a budget cutting measure, or a silent protest. Having flown other platforms, I was first surprised and then annoyed by the DJI Fly app that is required to operate this drone. A departure from DJI GO4, the Fly app goes out of it's way to be a cleaner interface and left me scrambling for my telemetry. When clicking on the map, I instead made it accidentally disappear. This wasn't great for usability. The control system on the Air 2s also means that the SDK does not support waypoint missions. Apps like Litchi and DroneDeploy are daily use for me, so to be locked into the DJI Fly app with no external support is maddening and limits what I will be able to use this drone for. DJI Fly and the available modes are an upgrade from GO4 with the inclusion of MasterShots, but the simultaneous choice to limit most input boxes to sliders rather than text entry is another gaff. I can't just type in 400ft as the flight altitude limit, I have to grab a slider and hope I can land in between 396 and 403 to get the precise height I want.

    Overall this is a great drone, easy to fly, and wonderful image quality from the 1" sensor camera. The fly more kit includes everything you're likely to need, namely more batteries and a way to charge them all, to keep you flying, as well as ND filters in the kit for the first time I've seen. I dinged the Air 2S for the unfortunate software/SDK, and no battery readout or any display on the remote, but those still doesn't take away from the image quality.

    Awesome just got better!

    The newest mid-level DJI drone is leaps and bounds better than the previous model. I found the Air 2S with the fly more combo to have everything I need for my budding career as an aerial photographer. Having owned a DJI Spark for a couple of years, this wasn't too different to get used to. At first glance, the new top sensors make it look like a Porsche which adds to my enjoyment. But they serve a purpose should you be flying forward or tracking through the woods. Obstacle avoidance was a big issue for my Spark so any new sensors are better, just wish they had side sensors so you could do those programmed shots without keeping your finger on the pause button because you worry about hitting something. Being near an airport means I have to get authorization to fly in my neighborhood; I'm happy to see how easy the Fly app let's you accomplish this, even right after registering, I received a coded text and I was good to go. From then on, I just request authorization and I get it. I like how they've managed to add more range with 1080p transmission using the new 4 antenna O3 Ocusync, now they have 10km line of sight over the previous 8km.

    Opening it up and setting it next to my Spark really gives you an idea of it's size. I tried to do a fly through inside a warehouse that I had done with the smaller one only to discover lack of GPS signal causes it to drift backward and to the right causing me to clip the blades on a piece of machinery. But to my surprise, it didn't come crashing to the floor, rather it relevelled itself about 3ft from the floor and I was able to land it with only slightly dulled prop tips on the right side. I suspect this wouldn't have happened if it had side sensors, but I guess the lack thereof is what makes this a mid level unit. The Mavic Pro has side sensors, but costs considerably more and weighs an extra 3/4Lb. so I'll take it into consideration.

    From what I've read, the Air 2 has a 1/2 inch image sensor and 48MP resolution, but I think that was accomplished by artificial means and the actual resolution was more like 12MP. The new Air 2S has a Mavic Pro sized 1 inch sensor and the capacity to shoot actual 5.4K video, while 4K doesn't use the whole sensor making digital zoom capable. The 20MP photos were rich and colorful, a definite step up from my Spark 12MP images. Details were surprisingly clear at full zoom. I like that I could fly manually and be able to frame an object and keep the camera both centered and focused on it, makes things easier than the ambiguity of using a preprogrammed feature unless the object is me, in which case, the active track 4.0 works out best.

    New programmed features like Master Shots makes full use of the APAS 4.0 to do it's preprogrammed 2 minute combination of Dronie, circle, and flyby among other popular video footage and manage to not hit anything. Though since it has no side sensors, it travels forward and takes control of the camera gimbal to get the side view during passes, getting the propeller in the top corner of the shot. You can change this in the camera settings to composite mode, just be sure there's nothing in it's side travel because it won't see it. While I see you can record in 4K with Master Shots, rendering is in 1080P so it's cool, but probably doesn't make sense. Another cool, if albeit dizzying feature is the FPV mode basically locking the horizontal axis on the gimbal giving you the sensation of tilting with the aircraft as if you were flying it yourself. It was a bit disconcerting for me, but there's a DJI FPV drone specifically for wearing VR goggles and feeling like your in the cockpit. This unit is not compatible with that setup, but it's nice to know you could reproduce the look of it.

    The Fly More bundle came with a neat little case with 4 ND filters that fit over the lens for darkening those bright summer days. Like sunglasses for your drone; I'm sure they have some more professional use, but that's one I can see. Though, one thing that really impresses me is how such a compact little unit can take such amazingly stable video with clarity even in the evening hours, I'm sure features like the Intelligent HDR and the large 1 inch image sensor that really captures the light like a professional DSLR.

    There are a few negatives I have. First off the price, this is not a bargain over the previous Air 2, $200 more. But maybe it is when you consider all the updates that bring this closer in features to the $1600 Mavic 2 Pro. Lack of side sensors is huge for me. While digital zoom is passable given the large image sensor, optical zoom would've been awesome. That's it really! Oh, the video feed cut out on me while taking a Smart shot and the screen froze, fortunately the controls didn't and I was able to maneuver in for a landing. Only happened once in the few days I've used it, hope it's not a recurring issue. I love this drone and suspect if you're not hung up on Hasselblad, you will too.

    Close to perfect 4K compact drone.

    ==== Summary ====

    The DJI Mini 2 is a fantastic drone that is easy to fly, nimble, and packed with cool features. Although it only weighs 249g, the Mini 2 does an admirable job holding its position in windy conditions and taking crisp footage. The addition of OcuSync 2.0, which vastly improves the video transmission distance, can't be praised enough.

    At $599.99 for the Fly More combo, the value proposition is strong and I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

    ==== Design, Build Quality, and What's Inside the Package ====

    For a drone that costs $450 ($600 for the Fly More combo), I'm quite happy and satisfied with the overall look, build quality, and fit-and-finish of the Mini 2. The Mini 2 is heavily plastic and some portions, such as the battery cover, stands out by feeling a bit cheap compared to the rest of the drone. I'm not bothered by it, though, because the battery cover snaps on securely, and by going with a light plastic construction, DJI managed to keep the weight under the FAA's registration threshold (250g/0.55 pounds). I would be very careful, however, not to crash the Mini 2 as the light plastic components probably won't survive any major impacts.

    As for the fit-and-finish, all the moving parts of the Mini 2 actuated smoothly and it was a frustration-free affair when handling it, such as the folding and unfolding process. I love the hold-down strap for the propellers which prevent them from moving around inside the case as well as the perfect-fitting and well-aligned gimbal protection cover that doesn't require any angle adjustments nor too much strength to pop in and pop out. The same can be said for the insertion and removal process of the battery; the battery makes a satisfying click sound when inserted and it pulls out smoothly. I love I can remove the battery even when the Mini 2 is all folded up and wrapped with the propeller guard strap.

    I'm a big fan of the design and layout of the remote controller. The spring-loaded phone holder easily accommodated my oversized phone, a Samsung Galaxy S20+, and the USB-C cord was long enough to plug in with some slack. There is a recessed compartment on top of the controller to stow the USB-C cable, which is a brilliant use of space, and the thumbscrews for the joysticks fit snugly and safely into the cutouts on the bottom of the controller.

    My Fly More combo package came with a three-bay, two-way charging hub and it's great. It has a USB-C input for charging the three batteries sequentially, as well as a USB-A output that can connect to the remote controller. The hub doesn't charge all the batteries and the remote at the same time; the batteries get charged first in a sequential manner (left to right), then the controller is the last piece to get its turn.

    The carrying case is pretty decent. Its padding is wholly adequate, outside and inside, and all the Fly More package components can fit inside comfortably with some space to spare. My only gripe about the case is the location of the carrying handle; instead of being on the side, I wish it were on the top. On the topic of gripes, there are two more, albeit small ones. First, I wish DJI had also included some propeller guards into the Fly More combo, as well as a micro-SD card.

    With all that said, it's my opinion the DJI Mini 2 Fly More combo is a great package that offers strong value. You get almost everything you need to start flying right away without the registration headache, and the Mini 2 is a well-built and very capable drone that's well-equip to capture stunning 4K videos and photos with a long flight time and great flight distance.

    ==== What's it like to fly the Mini 2? ====

    I cut my teeth on drone piloting via the Autel Evo drone ($1,050 on Best Buy) for the past two years and I have to give props to DJI for creating such a nimble, agile, and easy-to-maneuver compact drone. Out of the box, all the gimbal settings (pitch, yaw) were tuned perfectly for my flying style, and it was a lot of fun flying the Mini 2 everywhere I took it to, such as around my neighborhood, class 1 bike trails, and parks.

    At first setup, you're required to view three short video clips from the New User Guide within the DJI Fly app (Finding the Best Place to Fly, Preparing to Fly, and Flying the Aircraft). After going through the quick registration or log-in process, then you're ready to go right after the drone locks in a GPS signal, which usually took about 15-20 seconds for me.

    Launching the drone couldn't be any easier. All you have to do is tap and hold on the Auto Take-off icon and the Mini 2 will fly up a few feet into the air and steadily hold its position and await your command. Using the well-weighted and finely-tuned joysticks, the Mini 2 moves about precisely, accurately, and predictably - very important because there is no obstacle avoidance built-in.

    The gimbal angle adjustment is done via the shoulder switch located on the upper-left corner of the controller and it, too, was well-calibrated out of the box. The shoulder button on the upper-right hand corner is used to take photos and capture videos and it reacted quickly with a satisfying click and feel.

    The Mini 2 is rated for a 31-minute flight time but that's only when there is no wind and a traveling speed of 10.5mph (4.7m/s). My average flight speed was 20mph most of the time and I got the low battery warning after about 20 minutes, which is still very good for such a tiny and light drone. If you activate Sport Mode and push the Mini 2 to its maximum speed of 35mph (16m/s), then expect an even shorter flight time.

    When you're done flying the Mini 2, there are two ways you can bring it back - tap and hold the Return-to-Home (RTH) icon, or fly it back manually. I prefer the latter option as RTH wasn't always precise. When out in wide-open spaces, RTH was mostly accurate and missed the mark only a few times. But in more cramped spaces, like my backyard, the Mini 2 became confused and tried to land on my roof instead of the ground, which was disconcerting.

    Distance-wise, I got the Mini 2 to travel about 1,100 feet away in a dense residential area before the signal began breaking up.

    To sum it up, the Mini 2 is an absolute pleasure to fly thanks to the smart tuning and calibration out-of-the-box. It's just a shame that DJI didn't include active tracking or a front obstacle avoidance system, probably to hit that 249g weight target.

    ==== Video & Photo Quality ====

    The Mini 2, with its 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and 12MP effective pixels, did an admirable job capturing great-looking 4K, 2K, and 1080p videos as well as photos. Compared to my Autel Evo 4K drone, which has a 1/2.8" sensor and max capture rate of [email protected] at 100Mbps, the Mini 2 held its own ground and produced footage that often came out better looking with more realistic colors and superior auto-exposure. The only advantage the Autel Evo has over the Mini 2 is smoother footage during gimbal and drone rotations thanks to its higher 60fps rate, an impressive feat since the Mini 2 costs 133% less than the Evo as of 11/16/2020.

    Here is a short clip taken with the Mini 2 at [email protected] with all the settings on auto:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XIcpieS36u0FWdOT3Qp8NEjDuRu55UKW/view?usp=sharing

    I use zoom quite often when flying and it was nice to have several options at my disposal. At 4K, you get up to a 2x zoom; at 2K it's 3x and at 1080p, it's up to 4x. Naturally, the more you zoom in, some fine details become lost, especially when there isn't enough lighting. With good lighting, though, you can focus on your subject and get some excellent details out of it.

    If you'd rather prefer the Mini 2 to perform some trick shots while you keep your hands free, then you're all set because there are several nifty modes, such as Dronie, Helix, Rocket, Circle, and Boomerang.

    The photo-taking ability of the Mini 2 was quite satisfactory as well. I found myself using all three modes quite often - Wide, 180-degree, and Sphere - and they were easy enough to process and export using the Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) desktop app.

    Thanks to the march of technology, it's amazing how many cool features can now be crammed inside a small and compact drone that is so light and portable. I think the vast majority of people interested in drone cinematography will be very happy with the Mini 2.

    ==== Is it a good buy? ====

    I absolutely think so. DJI has pulled off an excellent engineering feat by implementing many meaningful & useful upgrades over the original Mavic Mini and created a force to be reckoned with.

    Absolute Home Run by DJI

    DJI has hit it out of the park with the Mini 2, and I say that as a Phantom Pro owner who is used to a higher-end, full-featured drone. While the original DJI Mavic Mini (we’ll call it the “Mini 1”) was designed to be a watered-down, entry-level drone with largely missing or reduced functionality compared to the Mavic or Phantom, DJI really worked to bring this still limited offering up to standards which make it a great choice for anyone looking for a first drone, or maybe just a more portable drone with great features.

    Pros:

    -Small and capable of being thrown in a jacket pocket or backpack.

    -Added 4k resolution and RAW photo support.

    -Pro features added to make shooting & processing video much easier for beginners.

    -Occusync 2.0 avoids signal degradation.

    Cons (covered in detail at the end):

    -No collision avoidance.

    -RC joysticks have to be removed for storage.

    -Phone can be tough to see in bright light due to angle

    -Can’t charge batteries and RC controller at the same time with the 1 included charger.

    -Color and size can make it hard to keep visual tabs on when flying.

    Camera:

    The Mini 2 adds in 4K/30fps (up from the Mini 1’s maximum 2.7k/30fps), which makes the video quality crisp and full of color & contrast. If you do have a need for 60fps, you can downgrade the settings in the app to 1080p/60fps (for action or post-processing slow motion shots). Still photos can be shot in JPG or JPG+RAW mode.

    You can also get “4x zoom”, which is not a true optical zoom, rather it’s the app cropping the video from 4k down to 1080 with 2x lossless zoom, then an additional 2x lossy zoom where it’s zooming on the pixels in the video resulting in quality loss.

    The camera is mounted on 3-axis gimbal, which gives it extremely good stability during turns or quick starts & stops.

    The DJI app now also includes 4 pre-programmed cinematic scenes that make beginners look like pros with their “QuickShot” options. These include “Rocket” (starting off looking at the ground & taking off straight up, expanding the shot as it climbs), “Dronie” (camera faces you then pulls back & upward, keeping you in the middle of the “selfie” shot), “Circle” (just orbits a set area, turning to keep the selected object in the center of the video as it orbits around it), and “Helix” (similar to circle, but in a more complex pattern of circles & zooms). The video shot in these modes can then be quick-edited, music added, and uploaded to social media all from within the app, no post-processing software required.

    Weight:

    The drone comes in at a mere 249g, which puts it 1g below U.S. FAA regulations for mandatory registration weight. If you’re outside the U.S. check with local regs for weight & registration requirements. The size makes it small enough to put in your jacket pocket, though the fact you have to have a controller, which is almost larger than the drone itself, you’ll still need a small bag to carry this (this “Fly More” package comes with a bag). Each prop is only about 3” in size, and the legs fold inward when not in use to make it easily packable.

    Stability & Flight:

    With the low weight you lose absolutely nothing with stability. The Mini 2 is FAR more stable in the wind than the Mini 1, and I actually found it more stable than my larger & much heavier Phantom Pro. In 2 days of flights – 1 with 15mph sustained/21mph gusting winds, followed the next day by 21mph sustained/28mph gusting winds – it felt like flying in no-wind conditions. DJI touts that it will fly in up to 37mph winds without issue .

    You can launch the drone with 1 tap. Likewise, the Mini 2 now features a GPS-based “Return to Home” feature which allows you to click the “RTH” button and have the drone automatically come back to the exact launch point and fully land. The RTH is good if you’re not sure where the drone is, or are in a situation where you need to get it home quick (i.e. low battery, weather, etc.).

    The drone now uses DJI’s Occusync 2.0 technology for wireless communication between the drone & controller, greatly increasing maximum distance between controller & drone and ensuring clear video feed over that distance. DJI states the max distance from the controller is 10km, but flying that distance from the pilot is a huge violation of FAA regs and a good way to lose your drone when it hits something or the battery dies miles away from you. Suffice it to say, the reach with Occusync will more than cover your flight.

    The controller has a 3-position switch for quick toggling of the flight modes available with the drone. “Normal” mode is, well, normal flight speeds (22mph) and turning. “Cine” mode slows all functions of the drone down, including forward speed, turning speed, and camera angle speed to give you that slower-motion cinematic feel. “Sport” mode gives you maximum speed and power, meant to follow fast-moving objects, yielding you a max speed of 36mph (remember this will kill your battery MUCH quicker than the 31-minute specs).

    Battery:

    Batteries will give you “up to 31 minutes” of flight time, though I never run them that low to make sure the drone makes it back to me. I usually bring it home at about 25% remaining. (Pro tip: Number your batteries & make sure you’re using them in a rotation rather than constantly using, recharging, and using the same battery again to extend battery life).

    Basics for Beginners:

    For those picking this up as their first drone, or transitioning from another drone manufacturer, the DJI Fly app gives you a full tutorial on how to use your drone to get you comfortable with its use. And the app’s ability to know what areas are allowable vs. not allowable to fly in will keep you from making a mistake flying somewhere not allowed or dangerous.

    Fly More Combo:

    The Fly More combo package comes with more that just the drone & controller. The package comes 3 batteries (instead of 1), which will get you about 90 minutes of flight time, with a 3-battery gang charger to allow you to charge all 3 in 1 device (but note that the gang charger will only charge 1 battery at a time despite being able to insert all 3), a water-resistant carry case about the size of a binocular case that features self-sealing waterproof zippers in case you get caught out in the rain, 3 sets of extra props in case you break a set, as well as an extra set of remote control joysticks in case they’re lost (you have to unscrew them & store them in the bottom of the controller when packing it up, so the potential for loss is there).

    Cons:

    - No collision avoidance: On all other non-Minis from DJI, the drones include forward/side/underside sonar for collision avoidance. So if you’re flying & not watching & come up on a tree, the drone will stop itself & not allow movement in the collision direction. Even as a longtime drone user, this has saved my rear a few times. To save cost & weight (trying to get below that magic 250-gram size), they did not include collision avoidance systems. Being this drone is likely being purchased by first-time drone operators, the very people likely to run into collision issues, not including this puts you at risk of damaging or losing your drone. Make sure you’re fully aware of the surroundings and just look to completely avoid any potential obstacles.

    - RC Joysticks: You have to unscrew the small thumb joysticks from the remote controller for storage, which could lead to a place where they’re lost. If they’re lost, you’ll have a very difficult time using the RC, which is why the Fly More combo kit comes with an extra set.

    - The RC uses your phone as the screen for viewing the drone’s flight, but how it’s placed in the RC makes seeing the phone tough in bright, direct light. I found myself scrambling to find shade to be able to see my phone during flight when the sun was directly overhead. Other RCs for other drones give you an ability to angle the phone a little to avoid direct glare.

    - With the 1 included USB-C charger, you cannot charge both the batteries and the RC controller at the same time. You’ll need a second charger, though the controller needs less charges than the batteries do.

    - Included dongles for connecting your phone to the controller (USB-C, micro USB, and Apple Lightning) have big, chunky collar around them for grip, but that collar keeps you from using them with many phones with a case in place (I use an Otterbox and the dongles didn’t even reach the port). I swapped it out with a smaller-collared cable & was fine.

    - Small size and color (whitish-beige) makes it easy to lose sight of when in the sky, especially against clouds. Wish it had more contrasting markings to be able to maintain FAA-required visual line-of-sight with the device.

    - Props poorly marked for replacement: While all of the props may look the same, 2 sets face a certain direction, while the other 2 sets are installed in the opposite direction. You differentiate with a very, very small line on the props, which if you’re new to droning and aren’t aware of that, you can install the wrong props, which will cause your drone to invert & crash on takeoff. Make sure you look for that marking if you need to replace the props. Would have liked to see a better marking or installation method like on other DJI products.

    In summary, DJI really did a great job with this drone. Despite wanting a nearly pocket-sized drone when the Mini 1 came out, I avoided it due to lack of critical features. DJI rectified that fully with this drone, making the Mini 2 one of the most feature-packed drones in an ultra-compact size that you could possibly buy. If this is your first drone, or you’re just looking for something smaller, I highly recommend the Mini 2.

    Absolutely amazing!

    This is my first DJI drone, coming from a parrot anafi, and the difference is staggering. DJI's app is easier to use and more intuitive with better controls; the form factor and design of the drone is better executed; the controller and packaging are way better and the range blows the competition out of the water!

    The Fly More Combo is a fantastic value so I highly recommend going that route if you are considering this drone. The carrying case is nice quality and has storage for the drone, batteries, charger, controller, along with all the cables and spare parts with room to spare. I also keep the old phone I've converted to my drone controller in there and still have room. The battery charger is an elegant solution. It houses all 3 batteries at once and has indicator lights showing where the charge is on each as they all charge at the same time keeping you ready to fly.

    The drone itself weighs almost nothing and is about the size of your palm folded up, making it extremely portable. But even with that light weight, it holds it's own in winds up to 25mph. I flew it at almost 400ft in 15-20mph winds and had no issues with control or taking stable shots. And this thing takes beautiful shots and video in 4k resolution, with 2x lossless zoom and 4x digital zoom. I recommend taking the full picture and cropping it later for best results but you can zoom if you prefer. You can also take panorama, 180 or sphere photos. Want some cool video effects? Try boomerang, circle, rocket, helix and dronie modes. Literally unbelievable how many things you can do with this small drone.

    Taking off is as easy as touching a button. When it lifts off, it will rise to 3-4ft and hover in place and record that spot. From that point on, when you're ready to have the drone come back to you, just hit the Return to Home button and it will return to that spot. One thing to note, this drone does NOT have obstacle avoidance, so make sure you set the altitude you want the drone to return at to avoid trees or other obstacles. If the biggest thing around you is a 100ft tree stand, set the RTH at 150ft to be safe. That will keep it at that altitude until it's directly overhead it's RTH spot, at which point it will come straight down.

    If you haven't flown a drone before, the tutorials built into the app are outstanding for teaching the basics and about some of the more advanced features. They include videos and step by step instructions, so definitely check them out if you're new to drone flying.

    My last drone would lose signal at 350ft and 50-75yds down range. This one, under the same conditions, went over a mile away at 400ft and showed no signs of signal loss. The OcuSync technology vs the old wi-fi tech is night and day. This is especially important if you're flying in an area with lots of wi-fi or other radio interference, such as suburban areas or cities. And you don't need to register this drone with the FAA or go through any licensing. It's size and weight don't qualify it for that. The geofencing technology built in will also help beginners with not taking off in restricted zones or violating airspace using the built in GPS.

    Overall, I can't recommend this drone highly enough for just about anyone. It takes amazing photos and videos, handles the wind fantastically for it's size and weight, and the new OcuSync 2.0 technology is legit. This is hands down the best drone you will find at this price point or below, and it's better than some others above this price point. Unless you're a professional who needs something crazy for commercial use, this is the drone you should buy.

    Tiny Powerhouse

    I'm reminded of a slogan, "you've come a long way baby". My current drone is the Phantom 3 and the new Mini 2 is way way beyond that in just 4-5 short years. It's so tiny it fits in the palm of your hand. And lite too! That low weight comes into play when you look at the FAA regulations. You won't need to register the drone because it falls under the 250g weight limit. Just because it's tiny doesn't mean it can't fly though. I took it out in some windy conditions, probably 15-20mph, and while it swayed a little while hovering, it was very responsive when flying and you wouldn't know by looking at the video it was that windy until you saw the trees rocking.

    Speaking of flying, the new Fly App was easy to use. You get a quick, interactive, guided tour of the interface when you go to fly the first time. You will actually be flying the Mini 2 within a couple of minutes as it has you take off, do a few quick maneuvers, and land. The app is so user friendly, you just push a button and the Mini 2 will take off and hover in front of you, and when it's time to land, press the button again and it will return back to where you started and automatically land (some caveats apply).

    Continuing on the flying aspect, the Mini 2 now connects to the controller via OccuSync 2.0. This means you can theoretically fly with a good connection for miles. The FAA requires you to maintain Line of Sight to the drone so you will have a hard time seeing it that far away but if you are flying within 1/2 mile you can easily see the drone and feel confident in the connection. That alone makes flying a dream.

    Once you've taken off, you can get beautiful 4k footage of your flight if you want to use the highest resolution. As the commercials say, "and that's not all!". You can actually zoom the camera! Ya, zoom. You can zoom up to double when shooting in 4k. The video quality will suffer a little but if the light is good, it's very useable. If you drop down into regular HD mode, 1920 x 1080, then you can zoom up to double and lose no resolution. It's crazy. And if you really need more zoom, you can go up to 4x in that HD mode. Just like the 4k zoom, once you go past 2x, you will start to lose video quality.

    If you like to shoot pictures as I do, the Mini 2 has you covered. It will shoot 12mp images that look really nice. What's more, if you like to do your own customization on the images, it allows you to shoot in Raw mode to produce a DNG file. That was reserved for only Pro-level equipment last year. The Mini 2 has more than just a single picture mode. It will shoot HDR images by taking 3 differently exposed images in AEB mode (you will need to combine them manually though). It takes panoramic images. A full 360-degree images as well as a 180-degree image. It shoots that in Raw mode also. You can grab the files from the SD Card and stitch them yourself.

    You've undoubtedly seen some interesting footage over the years where the video circles an object, or shoots up in the sky. Quickshots mode handles all that camera and drone movement for you to get the same cool video.

    Let's talk about flying time. The Fly More Combo comes with 3 batteries and that cannot be understated at how important that is. Realistically you get about 25-28 minutes of flight time per battery before you get into an area where you will need to land the craft safely. You won't believe how quickly those 25 minutes are. Having a couple of extra batteries allows you to fly for a long time and position yourself to get the shots you want without having to rush. You also get a 3 hub battery charger which makes charging the batteries very easy. It won't charge all 3 at once, unfortunately, but you won't have to worry that forgot to unplug one before charging the next.

    If the batteries aren't enough in the Combo, it comes with a very cool carry case for the Mini 2, controller, batteries, and accessories. Again, you're going to buy a bag anyway so you might as well save money and get it in the Combo Pack. It also comes with a few sets of propellers. Eventually, they will need to be changed due to normal wear our you scraping it on something, and they are basically freebies in the Combo pack so again, why not!

    If you've been looking for a camera drone that is packed with high-end features and a great price then the Mini 2 Fly More Combo is amazing.

    This wee beast is AMAZING!

    As a long-time photographer, I'd considered dipping a toe into the world of drones for some time. But there seemed to be two classes of UAVs: cheap toys that would be more trouble than fun, and overpriced behemoths that required FAA registration and a big case to lug around.

    Enter the DJI Mini 2. It's not cheap, but for what you get, it's absolutely worth it for both first-time drone owners and those looking for an upgrade.

    Pros: Size and weight mean it's easy to carry around anywhere, and no FAA registration required. 12MP/4k camera is excellent for its size, and the gimbal is generally rock solid. OcuSync 2 makes for reliable connections and long range. Batteries give good flight time--I generally get 25 minutes or so per battery. Remote is solid and easy to use, and the DJI Fly app is very good for both navigation and adjusting settings on the fly (pun intended). Critically, for first-time drone pilots, the Mini 2 is super easy to fly and lends confidence quickly. And the built-in QuickShots provide an easy way to get interesting video shots while you learn to create your own moves.

    Cons: The small size is a drawback when it comes to keeping the drone in sight--it doesn't have to go far before it becomes hard to spot! The lack of collision sensors means you do have to be careful about obstacles. And I do wish it had a proper follow-tracking mode, but DJI currently saves that for its higher-end models.

    Overall, if you're interested in getting a small, easy-to-use photo/video drone as your first or an upgrade from a toy-level UAV, the Mini 2 is definitely my recommendation. Absolutely amazing how far this tech has come in the past few years.

    Oh, and definitely spring for the Fly More Kit. You will DEFINITELY want the two extra batteries, and the bank charger and case are quite nice.

    Shouldn't have wasted my time buying cheaper alter

    If you are already considering this item (or even if maybe you haven't thought about it), you won't regret purchasing it. Save yourself time and money trying to see if you can find a different drone with comparable (or sometimes even seemingly better) specs for a cheaper price. Chances are if you do get a cheaper drone, you will either be disappointed and never use it, or you will love it but lose it or break it in a matter of time. If you purchase the dji mini 2, you will love it and will be constantly looking forward to opportunities to go flying, all without the worries and anxiety of losing connection and losing it or crashing it. For even more security, get DJI's "fly away coverage" which is only $49 for this model.

    I do recommend the "Fly more" package because always having charged spare batteries is worth it and with the 3 way charger that comes, you never have to land for other than swapping the batteries every half hour or so. The case and extra spare parts are convenient too.

    No Ragrets!

    I bought this as my first drone. Well, first official drone. I have experiences flying cheaper drones, but this is nothing like those at all. Not only does it shoot stunning 4k videos at 30fps, quick shots are amazing features that come with this little drone. Pictures are jpeg or +raw which adds better quality to the photos. I'm on my fifth flight and I cannot wait to fly this again. There are some improvements and minor software flaws, but nothing too major. Ive had a screen freeze on me when the RC lost signal to the drone. It initiated RTH and safely flew back to me (remember to set your auto RTH altitude higher than the tallest objects in your surroundings). DJI fly app has some minor bug issues IOS version 1.4.8 and Android 1 4.8 and the new 1.4.12. When I experience these small errors, I simply close the app and restart the app which solved the issues. Also, always remember to update your home point or simply wait for the notification before taking off and let the drone sit a bit to update your GPS location. All in all, this was one of the best gift I've given myself and a great hobby that I've picked up. It is worth every penny that I've paid for. Just remember to always check your surroundings and avoid flying too low since it does not have front and back cmos sensors to avoid obstacles. Buy it now abd have fun! And dont forget to take the TRUST test (which is reeeaally easy) and carry the certificate with you at all times when flying the drone.

    Outstanding Drone!

    This was my first drone and a great choice for both beginners and experienced drone pilots. Very easy to setup and fly. The fly more kit is a great added value as you will need everything included and will save you a lot over separate pricing. The flight control and connection to your phone is very smooth. Anyone can fly this drone under the right conditions. I practiced in a large field the first few times and in no time was harassing the cat with it. It’s small size makes it easy to throw it into my camera bag. It’s quick to setup and get it flying. Battery life is about 22-25 minutes. You may get the advertised thirty minutes if you are just hovering at 100 feet on a calm day and don’t maneuver around much. You get two extra batteries with the fly more kit and will need them. I’m a photographer and I knew the camera has some limitations but I was quite surprised with what it produced. This wouldn’t be my choice of it was just for photography but for overall ease of setup and flying and the small size it’s perfect!

    The Drone you are looking for

    DJI, with their combination of excellent avionics and quality cameras, has been at the top of the consumer aerial photography market for several years. Their drones can produce professional quality images in compact sizes that are easy to fly and control. Does the new Mavic Air 2 live up to expectations as a new drone from DJI? Time to find out!

    Two quick notes – the FAA requires that operators of the Mavic Air 2 register as a UAS (drone) operator in the US and follow all of the rules and laws around operating a UAS. Also, be sure to “wake up” the batteries from shipping mode one at a time by plugging them into the power supply plug directly, do not start charging them with the multi-port station! If the battery is plugged into the multi-port station first it can cause an issue where the battery never wakes up and has to be replaced by DJI. Save yourself some hassle and just plug them each directly into the charger. Just a few minutes per battery is enough to wake them up and make sure they are ready, then you can use the multi-port charger.

    The Mavic Air 2 is available in two flavors, one with the basics (drone, controller, propellers, and a single battery), and the Fly More combo.

    The Mavic Air 2 Fly More combo is an incredible value, coming with just about everything a drone pilot could ask for. Everything is neatly packed in the box, with the drone and several of the accessories all in the bag already. Seeing how compact the drone is all folded up is one of the highlights of opening the package. The bag has an extra foam sleeve for the “face” of the drone, keeping it well padded. The propellers are not attached and DJI does not recommend storing the drone with them on as they could warp over time. That said, I found that as long as you are careful putting the drone in the bag, there is enough space for the drone with the propellers on to fit, which is great if you are headed out to fly and don’t want to fuss with attaching the props in the field. It’s really easy to put the props on and take them off – just hold the top of the motor ring to keep it from spinning, align the tabs from the propeller, push down and twist the prop to lock it in place. Always check for a secure fit and that you have the correct propeller on the correct motor before flying!! There are 4 foam protectors that are on the motor axels, I saved those for when I’m storing the drone as extra protection.

    Getting ready for flight is simple, charge the batteries, attach the props, screw in the control sticks, and connect the controller to your phone using one of the included cables. My controller came with the lightening cable already attached under the phone clamp, so don’t panic if you don’t see it in the box. The cables are right angle cables, I didn’t have an issue with the case on my phone but if you have a thicker case without a lot of clearance around the charging port you might need to get a “straight” cable with USB-C to plug into the controller and whatever type of plug your phone requires. The phone is securely clamped into the top of the controller so it is easy to get to and see. There is an option in the app to even have the controller charge your phone if the battery is low! Open the DJI Fly app, power up the controller and the drone, install the required firmware update, tag your drone with your FAA operator number, and you are ready to go. The Mavic Air 2 has an onboard 8gb memory that can be used to store some photos or video; I installed a 64gb microSD card for more space and the ability to directly load the original photos to my PC.

    If your takeoff location is in the grass or dusty, a landing pad may be in order. The back props are very low and will cut grass or kick up a ton of dust that will get all over the drone and pulled through the motors. Once in the air, the Mavic Air 2 is a dream to fly. I’m really into tech and it’s still a wonder to me how these drones stay fixed in position when they are getting buffeted by 10-12mph winds on a blustery spring day. It’s incredibly responsive and it can get very fast in sport mode, remember that it takes distance to stop, especially if going with the wind! Flight time is also incredible, with up to 34 minutes. I found myself checking the remaining battery and being amazed at how much time was left. It really changes how you fly when you can take time to frame up shots or play with the myriad of photo options this thing has.

    The camera on here is very good, it’s a Sony 1/2” sensor with a 48mp native resolution. It can do HDR stills, HDR Video, 4k at 60fps, 8k hyperlapse, and is stabilized on a 3 axis gimbal. The 48mp mode is interesting – it resolves more detail than 12mp, but with a tradeoff in noise and sharpness. It’s nice to have the option if more cropping or a larger print size is needed. Different options will change some of these things, for example 4k video at 60fps will disable HDR video and the automatic obstacle avoidance ability (it will still alert you that you are approaching something). For the size and price point of the Mavic Air 2, this camera is a perfect match and capable of meeting all but the most demanding of needs.

    For flight safety, the Mavic Air 2 has obstacle avoidance sensors that look forward, down, and behind. The Mavic Air 2 can automatically avoid obstacles it detects, but I was not willing to fly it at a tree and hope it avoided it! There is also a bright LED that can be turned on to aid in landing or spotting the drone by pushing a button on the controller. The US versions of the MA2 also have an ADS-B receiver. This allows the MA2 to be aware of other aircraft using the ADS-B location beacon and alert you that a manned aircraft is close. Despite the advertised range of the controller being 6 miles it’s against FAA regulations to fly beyond your unaided visual sight, however the ADS-B system can help you be extra alert that an aircraft is nearby. Even though you aren’t likely to fly the MA2 to the edges of its range, with that much capability it does mean that your connection is very reliable between the drone and the controller, which is awesome.

    Even with everything that is great about the Mavic Air 2, I do have a couple of minor things in the app that I hope can get cleaned up. For one, when approaching an obstacle, it doesn’t tell you which direction or distance it is picking up the obstacle. Also, I found it hard to navigate the photo and video modes and figure out what would change with different settings. The documentation in the box tells you almost nothing beyond basic setup, so you have to find everything else online or learn while operating the drone, which is a bit daunting at times when the UI isn’t completely intuitive.

    Overall, the Mavic Air 2 is that rare product that sits at the balance point of features and price. It has more than enough capability to keep all but most demanding professionals happy while not breaking the bank. It’s a joy to fly and is the drone you are probably looking for.

    An amazing, well featured compact Drone!

    The DJI Mavic Air 2 with the Fly More Combo is an amazing well-featured compact consumer-level drone. The primary features include:

    • 4K/60fps Video/48 MP Photos

    • 34-Min Max Flight Time

    • 10km 1080p Video Transmission

    • APAS 3.0 Obstacle Avoidance

    • 8K Hyperlapse

    • FocusTrack

    The Fly More Combo adds to this by including accessories that – well, as stated in the name – help you fly more! These accessories include 2 extra Intelligent flight batteries ($230 value), 3 extra Pairs of Low-noise Propellers ($33 value), a set of ND Filters for the camera ($65 value), a battery charging hub ($59 value), and a Battery to Power Bank Adapter, which allows you to use the Mavic Air Battery as a power bank to charge your phone or a tablet ($19 value). This combo adds $189 to the price of the base Mavic Air 2. Bought separately these would cost $495 – which makes this a fantastic price at $998 vs the base Mavic Air 2 price of $799.

    This review will be done in 3 parts – features, usage impressions, and Pros/Cons.

    Features:

    The DJI Mavic Air 2 has several key features. First among these are features that aid a drone pilot to capture some awesome videos and still images shots. The ½-inch CMOS sensor allows for up to 48 MP photos including smart photos and for 4K/60 FPS video. Smartphoto is an optimized capture method that “integrates scene recognition, HyperLight, and HDR into one mode for optimal results. Scene recognition optimizes different camera parameters for various scenes and supports intelligent recognition of five categories: sunset, skies, grass, snow, and trees.” The device is also capable of Enhanced HDR photos, videos, and panorama shots. Additionally, the device has several Quickshots built in that allow one to take a cinematic quality shot of a target and the surrounding area. Each Quickshot is a pre-programmed aerial route that allows one to capture cinematic video clips. The quick shots are all oriented at a target and have an associated flight pattern, for example, the Dronie pattern the drone flies backward away from the subject while capturing the shot; while the Rocket pattern flies straight up with the camera pointing down at the targeted subject. The others are called Circle, Helix, Boomerang, and Asteroid. One can see examples of each at the DJI website. The final video feature is called Hyperlapse and this mode is shot in 8K and this mode allows “you to warp time and space for especially stunning footage. Best of all, you can achieve this shot without complex post-processing. Choose from Free, Circle, Course Lock, and Waypoint modes, select the shooting location, and the DJI Fly app will do the rest.” You can view a video clip shot at 1080P @30 FPS here: https://youtu.be/H-KbXEqi3Pc

    The second area of features that make this drone so incredible is called FocusTrack. FocusTrack is a “suite of intelligent tracking modes” – including Active Track 3.0, Spotlight 2.0 and Point of Interest 3.0 as follows:

    • Active track 3.0 – Allows the drone to follow subjects while avoiding obstacles and the drone can keep track of the subjects. This mode can also find subjects if they are lost because of moving behind an obstacle. There are 2 modes for this feature – Trace, that tracks the subject at a constant distance and allows for obstacles, and Parallel, that tracks the subject at a constant angle and distance from the side, unfortunately, the aircraft cannot sense obstacles in this mode.

    • Spotlight 2.0 – “Fly freely while the camera remains locked on the subject with this convenient mode. Simply select your subject and fly.”

    • Point of Interest 3.0 – in this mode “the aircraft tracks the subject in a circle based on the radius and flight speed selected. This mode works with both static and moving subjects – as long as they are not moving too fast.”

    The third area of features for this drone is the built-in safety systems. The safety systems being with OcuSync 2.0, which is the video transmission system for the drone. This system has a range of 10 km and can deliver a 1080P FHD resolution Livestream directly form the drone’s camera. The system is also dual banded allowing transmission at both 2.4 and 5.8 GHz to deliver “a reliable signal and smooth flights” and since the system gets to the best channel with the lowest interference it increases flight safety. Adding to this is the Intelligent Flight Battery with up to 34 minutes of flight time, allows one to take great shots and in sport mode one can reach a flight speed of up to 68 kph (just over 42 mph). Rounding out the safety features is the impressive obstacle avoidance system known as the Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 3.0. This system “utilizes an advanced mapping technology for smooth following and reliable obstacle avoidance in complex scenarios. Obstacle avoidance performance and automatic flight planning have dramatically improved compared to previous generations, increasing safety, and providing more options.” This system allows the drone to perceive its environment forward, backward, and downward.

    The fourth and final feature area that I am going to focus one is the applications that one uses with the Mavic Air 2 – DJI Fly and DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic. The DJI Fly app works on several smartphones – but not all smartphones It works in connection with the remote control the comes with the Mavic Air 2. The app allows for ease of flying, using manual settings, advanced functions – including Quickshots and the FocusTrack modes. DJI Fly also allows one to edit their videos right on your smartphone. The remote control also has a 6-hour battery life and charges the phone while it’s in use. DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic is a Windows/Mac application that provides you with the ability to “upload flight data, black box information, calibrate your vision sensors and upgrade your firmware”. It also contains a simulator that will replay your flights based on the blackbox data. This feature does use the motors so be sure to remove the aircraft’s propellers before using it!

    Usage Impressions:

    The Mavic Air 2 is a device that truly makes the saying that “good things come in small packages” ring true. This is a highly sophisticated drone aircraft that is packed with features. Features for the advanced drone user as well as those that can help the new to drone operations. The DJI Fly app is a terrific feature of this system that allows one to take advantage of the many pre-programmed activities to get wonderful shots from the drone. This application also has plenty of features and capabilities to aid you in using the drone most effectively. The included tutorials – including videos - and help features of the app are great aid helping one get up to speed on this drone and its capabilities.

    The Fly More Combo included in this version is an amazingly valuable addition to the overall value of the package. One of the best features is that the entire collection of items in this package fits in the carry bag – which makes taking this drone with you on your travels and adventures that much more enjoyable and gives you over 100 minutes of flight time with all 3 Intelligent flight batteries fully charged.

    The included safety systems, especially the Obstacle avoidance capabilities also allow one to do more with the drone and do it safely. This will bring you hours of fun using the system and capturing your travels and adventures in a whole new way.

    One downside to the DJI Fly app is that it supports a very limited set of phones. It does support many iPhones and iPods with iOS 10.0 or above. For Android devices, they must have Android 6.0 or above but also must be specific brands and models – for example, my Motorola G6 Android device is not compatible; even with Android 9.0 installed. Samsung Galaxy/Note, HUAWEI, Honor, OnePlus, and Pixel phones are compatible Android devices.

    On a final note, please be advised that in the United States of America, Drone usage is a highly regulated activity with Federal requirements, state, and possibly local regulations to comply with. Please be aware of the rules and regulations and fly safely and legally.

    Pros: Features, Features, and more features. Fly Mode Combo is a terrific value add.

    Cons: Battery flight time seems shorter than advertised, iPhone Charging must be activated each time one uses the DJI Fly App, limited Android phone model support

    INCREDIBLE IN EVERY WAY

    PRO’S

    48MP photos that are incredibly sharp and vivid

    4K video (that is 8,000 x 4,000 pixels!) at 60 FPS

    Great battery life per battery (1.5 hours of fly time when using 3)

    Improved hand controller for smoother gimbal rotations

    Great price, especially the “Fly More” Bundle

    CON’S

    There is already a new version out which can be obnoxious

    I have had nothing but good things to say about this drone. In fact it has led me to take it places and push it harder than any other drone to date. It’s not so expensive I won’t fly it out of sight but not cheap to where it lacks function. This drone lets you capture ravishingly sharp and detailed aerial photographs. It’s also suitably excellent for shooting 4K video at speeds up to 60 frames per second. With lots of autonomous functions and clever in-flight features take this drone's photography and video to the next level without needing to be an experienced pilot.

    Best wishes and hope this helps someone

    Excellent first drone

    Let me start off with mentioning that prior to purchasing this, I’d never bought anything more expensive than a 30$ micro drone. Despite the price, the Mavic Air 2 is infinitely easier to fly - with more bells and whistles than your cheapo micro drones! The remote controller feels really intuitive to use, and feels nice to hold. You don’t need to worry about unfolding or properly aiming antennas since they’re built into the controller and phone holder.

    I’m amazed on the reported range on this thing - on the 2nd day of owning the drone I had it flying a mile away from my house, and that’s not even close to the max transmission range it is capable of. The return to home (RTH) feature works like a charm, and returns the drones to the exact position I took off from - simply amazing.

    4K video from a small portable device like this is amazing, and the 48mp camera takes outstanding pictures. I’m not any sort of a photography professional, but I’ve already had friends ask me how I edit my photos after pulling the raw files directly off and posting them.

    Battery time lines up pretty close to the stated ~34m flight time, depending on conditions and use. And the interface of the DJI fly app makes it easy to tell when you’re getting low and will auto RTH if needed. Batteries cost 115$ each, which makes the Fly More Combo immediately worth the extra $189 as you get two batteries and additional accessories along with it.

    I honestly couldn’t have imagined my first real drone experience going any smoother and enjoyable than it has since owning the Mavic Air 2!

    Perfect Drone for Beginners and Enthusiasts

    I received this drone at no cost for review. I had been considering purchasing a drone for a long time, but never pulled the trigger on it, so having the chance to get the Mavic Air 2 was very exciting for me as the original Mavic Air was the drone I would have purchased for the price/performance ratio. Over the past week I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the Air 2 and the possibilities it represents. It was very easy to get comfortable flying and I’ve been impressed with every photo and video I’ve taken. I know that I’ve hardly even scratched the surface of what it’s capable of and that makes me all the more excited to continue using it.

    Prior to receiving the Air 2 I had no experience flying a ‘real’ drone and had only occasionally messed around with sub-$100 toys, so I was a bit apprehensive about flying it at first. I live in the city and wanted to make sure I flew it in a space that was free of houses, people, and general obstacles, both for the safety and not-being-a-creep factors. I watched a lot of videos about flying before I went out the first time and I’d recommend most people do the same. I ended up going to a park with a large open field and though I still exercise caution, the app’s tutorials and interface helped alleviate my apprehension pretty quickly. There’s a small learning curve with the app, but once you learn where everything is nothing important is more than a couple of taps away. Flying alone was a huge rush, especially in the sport mode, and the Air 2 is very compliant and easy to control. The connection between the drone and the controller supposedly allows for up 10km between them, but I generally kept it within sight of myself at no more than a few hundred feet away and usually less than 150ft off of the ground. I will also say that while it is certainly audible, it was much quieter than I expected; I would say the sound is akin to a weed wacker, but about half as loud.

    The photos and videos I’ve taken have impressed me in almost every circumstance, even while I was still trying to get the hang of just flying it. The perspectives alone that a drone allows you to capture are impressive enough and the onboard camera on the Air 2 can deliver some truly breathtaking shots. The gimbal keeps video super stable, even with some of my messier initial flights. I mostly shot video in 4K/30 with HDR and colors and details really pop without looking overly saturated. Photos were equally impressive. The ½” image sensor is smaller than the 1” sensor in the Mavic Pro and smaller again than the sensors in a DSLR or mirrorless camera, but I never found the quality wanting at all. The built-in tracking also works well and lets you set up some impressive moves with very little effort. The DJI app has some nice editing tools, though downloading a large video file from the drone can take a few minutes.

    The included controller is a good size and comfortable to hold, though the spring-loaded mechanism for attaching your phone is a little awkward for bigger phones like the Pixel 4 XL I was using. The buttons are all in good positions and the shoulder buttons and dial for controlling the camera are easy to reach and use by feel.

    If you are interested in the Air 2 I would wholeheartedly recommend the Fly More Combo. The extra 2 batteries alone more than justify the price differential, but the carrying case is maybe my favorite part of the package. It’s not much bigger than a regular camera bag, yet it will fit the drone, controller, both extra batteries, the charging hub, and all of the other accessories; it’s so well designed. I would also consider the DJI Care Refresh for peace of mind if, like me, you’re just starting out. I do wish it would cover a longer time period than 1 year, but for the price I think it’s a good value.

    I could go on and on about how much I love the Mavic Air 2. I think it’s a great middle ground for people who don’t want to spend $1600 on the Mavic Pro, but want something a little better than the Mavic Mini. I’m excited to continue growing into the Air 2.

    Impressive Drone - Packed with Features!

    Impressive Drone – Intelligent, easy to use features; Up to 34 minutes of flight!

    If you’re in the market for a reasonably priced full feature drone, then this is the one you want! The DJI Mavic Air 2 is packed with many features reserved for high end (high priced) drones. The ½” - 48MP sensor is far better than any other drone in this price range. This camera paired with a responsive 3-axis gimble delivers high quality, high-resolution photos, and stunning smooth professional-looking videos.

    The intelligent flight modes paired with advanced flight safety systems make this drone exceptionally easy to fly, and the impressive 34-minute flight time keeps you in the air with ample time to safely return home after capturing your perfect shot!

    The DJI fly app lacks a few features, controls, and settings, I’ve become accustomed to while flying a DJI drone. Thankfully this can be easily corrected with a future app update.

    All in all, this is a solid, well-built drone, packed with features, and thanks to everything included with the Fly More Combo, this package is definitely a great value for anyone wishing to get into aerial drone photography!

    Key features

    • 1/2” sensor

    - 48MP photos

    - 12MP photos with high dynamic range

    - 4k60fps video

    • Smart photo

    - This is the go-to camera mode to capture quick photos, especially when the subject/scene changes quickly. This setting takes all of the guesswork out of getting the perfect shot.

    - Automatic scene recognition automatically chooses the camera settings for optimal image quality. While in this mode the drone will choose between HDR, HyperLite, and Scene recognition to optimize dynamic range, remove noise in low light conditions, and fine-tune camera settings to capture the best shot possible.

    - Note this feature is not available while the drone is set to capture 48MP photos.

    • 8k hyper-lapse

    - The DJI Mavic Air 2 drone is the first drone on the market to enable aspiring filmmakers the ability to capture hyper-lapse video in 8k! This shooting mode can also be paired with many of the built-in flight modes to quickly capture stunning and professional-looking videos with virtually no skill required.

    • Autonomous functions

    - FocusTrack

    - Three different tracking modes are built in to help you capture the perfect shot

    • Active track – The drone will follow the chosen subject. Minor flight adjustments can be made while in this mode, but thanks to obstacle avoidance, this drone can navigate fairly complicated airspace without a problem.

    • Point of interest (POI) – The drone automatically navigates around an object of interest, keeping the subject centered within the frame.

    • Spotlight – Similar to active track, the selected subject remains centered within the frame but the drone’s movement is under the control of the pilot.

    - QuickShots - (Rocket, Circle, Dronie, Helix, Boomerang, or Asteroid)

    • Flight time

    - 34-minutes

    - In the flight tests I performed, I generally achieved 29-32 minutes of flight before the drone prompted automatic landing. Note: during my test flights we were experiencing fairly high winds and unseasonable cold weather, so your flight time may vary.

    • Range

    - Thanks to OcuSync 2.0 the fear of losing connection to your drone is essentially gone. 10km (6.2 mi) transmission ensures your drone remains connected even when obstructed by dense trees and structures.

    • Safety

    - APAS 3.0

    - While enabled the drone easily navigated around trees, over structures, only stopping if a clear path could not be determined. I was especially impressed at how quickly the drone planned an alternate flight path and navigated around most obstacles.

    - ADS-B

    - Monitors the air space around your flight area and provides an onscreen alert that aircraft are present, reminding you to reduce the

    drone’s altitude.

    What Fun!

    I picked up this drone as essentially a new user - I had a Mavic Air that I flew a few times but always had a hard time connecting the controller and getting good quality photos and video with...but right out of the box, this was EASY AS CAN BE to connect, control and fly...plus, it takes really beautiful photos and gorgeous high resolution video.

    I have used this on professional video shoots for one of my clients, in addition to tinkering with it around the neighborhood to get used to the controls - and I'm absolutely loving it.

    If you're thinking about it - I'd say "do it" - you'll love it...and I'm guessing the price will come down soon, as they have already introduced a newer model (right after I purchased this...nice timing).

    1st time drone owner with no experience with a drone. This has been easy to learn how to fly as long as you read and watch you tube videos. Be sure to understand all the FAA rules and to register the drone. Be sure to buy insurance or the Refresh from DJI with in 24 hours of purchase and i wish i would of. I did add it to my home policy for around $60 a year. As i’m only a recreational pilot I also added a $100,000,000 liability umbrella policy in case causing any damage to property causing injuries. Great product would purchase again

    Extra power

    Ñever can have enough extra power. This battery is the same battery that comes with the JDI mini 2 drone. The battery last about 25 minutes when fully charged . Flying a drone and video at the same time eats up the power pretty fast .

    Not the best battery life

    I bought this because one battery is not enough for these tiny drones. It's a necessary evil in that battery life is really short, plus these drain if left in the Mini 2. Plus, they ain't cheap.

    DJI Air 2S Drone Fly More Combo with Smart Controller
    Description

    Featuring a 1-inch CMOS sensor, powerful autonomous functions, and a compact body weighing less than 600 g, DJI Air 2S is the ultimate drone for aerial photographers on the move. Take this all-in-one aerial powerhouse along anywhere to experience and record your world in stunning detail."

    13 Features
  • Big World, Big Sensor: Equipped with a 1-inch image sensor and large 2.4μm pixels, DJI Air 2S is capable of 5.4K/30fps and 4K/60fps video. Capture any moment with the rich clarity and authentic color tones it deserves for results that amaze.
  • Turn On the Night: Capture the allure of the world, even as it darkens. Thanks to a high dynamic range, high resolution, and accurate color reproduction, even low-light scenes are sharp and vibrant.
  • One Billion Colors: Fully immerse yourself in all the hues of your environment. The 10-bit Dlog-M color profile can record up to one billion colors while retaining all the little details that make footage pop.
  • Shoot RAW: RAW format photos with a dynamic range of up to 12.6 stops capture more visual information in every scene, even when lighting conditions are bad or complex. This provides more flexibility in post-processing, giving creators more possibilities to get the look they want.
  • Intelligent HDR: Intelligent HDR technology merges multiple shots automatically, increasing the dynamic range of images without the need for post-processing. That means more nuanced details in both the highlights and shadows for richer images with greater depth.
  • Hyperlapse and Panorama: Speed up time and movement with a single tap by creating a striking hyperlapse. You can also capture larger, more detailed shots of your surroundings with panorama.
  • Introducing MasterShots: MasterShots gives users the best shots in any location with just a tap. Simply select your subject, and the drone will film while executing ten different maneuvers in sequence, keeping your subject center-frame and generating a short cinematic video afterward.
  • The Center of Attention: FocusTrack features Spotlight 2.0, ActiveTrack 4.0, and Point of Interest 3.0, making it a breeze for DJI Air 2S to follow or circle your subject.
  • Worry Less, Discover More: The combination of portability, safety, and autonomous technology means you can spend more time enjoying flights and less time worrying about them. Take DJI Air 2S into the sky confidently, every flight.
  • Environment Sensing: DJI Air 2S has the ability to perceive its environment in four directions: up, down, forward, and backward. The algorithms for APAS 4.0 have been further improved, allowing DJI Air 2S to actively avoid obstacles in more complex scenarios and at high speeds.
  • O3 Transmission: DJI Air 2S features DJI's most advanced O3 (OcuSync 3.0) image transmission technology, delivering an ultra-smooth, clear, and reliable image feed everytime you fly.
  • Safer Skies with ADS-B: DJI Air 2S provides an added layer of airspace safety with the built-in AirSense system. This receives ADS-B flight location information from airplanes and helicopters in your area that transmit ADS-B signals, and warns you through the DJI Fly app.
  • Fly Responsibly:: The following website may help you make informed decisions about flying your drone: KnowBeforeYouFly.org. Additional state or local requirements may apply. Check your local jurisdiction.

    Awesome drone!

    Been enjoying capturing videos and images, fun to fly as well. Even in high winds it holds position. Only gripe is you can only zoom when shooting video and not images which is handy to see what you're capturing in the background.

    DJI Air 2S fly more combo and Smart Controller

    I bought this combo because DJI is a leader in drone tech. With the fly more combo you have everything you need to get in the air quickly. I chose the smart controller because it removes the need for me to supply a smartphone or tablet to see what the drone is doing. It's definitely an impressive system!

    Great Product from Autel

    Excellent drone! It has worked as advertised and I have not had any problems with it. Very compact to carry and easy to open up and get flying quickly. I easily get 25 or so minutes flying time from this drone by not pushing it to its limits. Video quality and still pictures are excellent. The video is rock steady and beautiful at 4K. The added batteries and props with the 'On-The-Go' bundle are really nice to have and allow me to stay up in the air more. I have gotten no where near the max flying distance with this drone but can say that I have flown it to the far edge of being able to see it and there has been absolutely no drop in connectivity to the drone. The GPS aspect of this drone allows it to practically fly itself. Very easy to fly. Return to home works great. A big reason I decided on Autel is that they do not have No Fly zones that stop you from flying like DJI. I found that the DJI No Fly zones often covered areas around me that should not have been covered. Very frustrating. Anyway, great product from Autel. I'm sure the Evo2 is even better.

    Costly compared to other options

    Better than 3rd party, but it costs more. If the you can afford to, I would not skimp and replace this with a 3rd party car adapter. You will get more efficient charging using the first party adapter rather than trying to convert to AC in order to use the wall plug (which then converts back to DC). If you're on the road a lot, this is a necessity. Keep in mind that if your car is not running, this can quickly drain your car battery.

    High Performance, Super Stable Plus A Great Camera

    I totally in LOVE with MY new toy ~~ School CLOSED for so long that put me and my kids stuck together 24 hrs x7 days. I decided to purchase this drone to play with my kids at my backyard, since I can't take them to any vacay.

    The 4K UHD camera has a super wide angle lens that provides for great photo opportunities while flying around. I like the fact that this thing carry AI face recognition as well.

    The drone itself also capable of large, fast laps around the neighborhood. It does more than simply hover for photos. My kids got all excited to play with it.

    It didn't take me long to unbox and assemble. Calibration instructions are simple and easy to follow.

    I juz can't wait to bring this gadget and my kids to vacation after this crazy corona outbreak IS OVER!!!!!!

    Very good drone for the price

    I'm new to drone flying, this is my first purchase.

    I was influenced by the reviews on YouTube and the ability for this drone to be flown safely over water. I've got some sailboats I want to video.

    It has most all of the features of more expensive drones. Including a 4k gimbal camera and 30 minutes flight time.

    I took a lesson recently and the instructor was impressed with the quality and the features.

    This is more than an entry level drone. It will more than cover my needs for the immediate future. I can't wait to get it out over the water and one of my boats.

    I'm very satisfied with my decision to order the Egg X.

    Amazingly fun

    I just bought this PowerEgg drone, and am already using it. Gotta tell ya... I love this. Going to use this for my kids soccer games and just used for our outdoor pool party. The fact that it is waterproof gives me confidence to use by my pool and outside videoing the kids games as it could rain. It was easy to put together and felt comfortable in my hands. The grip was perfect. The time in flight was better than i hoped for. I am not the most technologically advanced person so instruction wise it was easy to follow. I really love being outside and this will make old things new again. Fantastic Drone!

    Right fit for photographer needs drone and video

    I am a Realtor and photographer and during COVID-19 I see an increased needs for video tour for mine and other colleague's listings due to the SIP regulations. Plus, I need a new drone to replace my old DJI mavic mini but can't wait for the new DJI mavic air 2.

    In general, I am very satisfied with the poweregg X. The design and build quality are beyond my expectation, it feels like an art product in my hand. It is very easy to transit from a handheld camcorder to a flying drone, which meets my basic requirements for video tour and bird eye view. It also came with an accessories for tripod attachment but I don't really use this function myself.

    The image is very stable even when there is strong wind. The video and image quality is good enough for my advertisement purpose. The control range is approximately 300 ft and the "return to home" function is very handy, avoid flying the drone out of the range.

    The battery drains fairly quick when in drone mode, I normally have an extra battery with me and most of the time my job can be done with only one battery. The waterproof and landing/taking off on water function was not tested but should be fun and will definitely try it next time I go to kayaking.

    Great drone, easy to fly, convenient to carry

    Okay, so I would have given this a 5-star review except for the follow-up accessory issues I had because of DJI policy.

    I am a first time drone pilot who did my best to research the available drone options and tried to pick one that looked like it would do what I wanted (I want to document remotely located archaeology sites) but not be so complicated that I would be overwhelmed by all I needed to learn to be successful. I feel like I chose the right drone.

    Flying it is really simple and takes no time at all to master. Figuring out how to get good photos from a drone in the air can be a little bit more challenging, but simply takes a little experience. Getting the photos and videos off the drone and onto my computer is a little bit awkward, but seems to be possible with a three-step process: 1-send data from the aircraft to my I-phone, 2-mail from my I-phone to my e-mail, and 3-downnload from my email to my computer files. Like I said, it's a bit awkward and time consuming, but not unmanageable. One issue I had not considered until I started flying the drone was the relatively short aircraft battery life. After hiking several miles and climbing hundreds of feet to arrive at an archaeology site, you would like to have more than 20-30 minutes of flight to take photos and videos. So you need a spare battery or two to extend your flying time.

    Right after I purchased the drone and started using it, I decided to purchase spare batteries and a charging station. Now this is where DJI disappointed me. While I could have purchased the "fly more" option and gotten the drone delivered with spare batteries and charger included, or I could have purchased more DJI Mini 2 drones that come with a battery. DJI was not selling any batteries or chargers to existing customers. I hounded their customer support for weeks trying to get a spare battery, but they wouldn't budge. Finally, they sent me an email telling me that for a very limited time I would be allowed to order spare batteries and chargers. I did. They had to come from China to Arizona which turned out to be difficult (but not DJI's fault).

    So now I have the drone and needed accessories and am flying and taking photos and videos regularly. I am still no expert. The software app that makes it possible to fly the aircraft with your phone is quite sophisticated and complex. I have not completely mastered all the features, but I am doing more sophisticated things than I had imagined prior to getting the drone and plan on continuing to become more expert in my drone flights and photos.

    I am really satisfied with my drone choice today. Because this is my first drone, I can't compare it to other options, but being able to fold this up and place it in a backpack makes it ideal for what I want to do. And it really is easy to learn to fly. I am having fun and getting great shots.

    DJI mini 2 - great for beginners and hobbyist

    This is my first drone and I didn’t need all of the bells and whistles that are on ~$1000 drones but gives far more flexibility than drones costing less than $400.

    With all of the new rules coming from the FAA regarding drones and hobbyists I really didn’t want to get to involved with licensing and I don’t plan on commercializing my drone and if I do I would definitely get the drone pilot license.

    So far I’m very happy with flight times and the syncing technology is very reliable. And if you have a spare phone that’s not being used use that with remote.

    The size is what drew me to the DJI mini 2 and I’ve been following DJI drones since 2016. I fell in love with the mini but glad I waited for the mini 2. Camera is better, remote is easier and the syncing technology is far better giving theoretical distances of up to 6 miles - per YouTube user reviews.

    Really glad I purchased this and have already invested in extra batteries for more flight time. I have captured numerous beautiful sunsets in Wisconsin.

    So Much fun to Fly

    Unboxing

    What a great unboxing experience you get with this Drone. Everything is packed nicely in the fly more combo Bag, which can convert into a backpack…awesome! Of course you get the Mavic 3 itself, 3 sets of props, 3 Total batteries that are 5000 mah each, the battery dock/charger which can charge all three batteries at a time. (You also have the option of charging a battery directly inside the Mavic 3). You also get 4 ND Filters from 4 - 32 which will help you capture that perfect shot or video in bright situations. Also this comes with a cover that protects the camera system, wraps around and holds the props in place and bungees around and hooks to itself protecting the vital parts of the DJI Mavic 3. You get the RC its self (Not the Pro smart controller with the screen) which to me is perfectly fine and works well with your smartphone and DJI fly app. It’s the same controller as the Air 2S.

    Drone Size and Weight.

    The Mavic 3 weighs around 895 grams which is right at 2lbs. It is approximately the same size as the Mavic 2. The arms fold in and out identical to the Mavic 2 and Air 2S making for a compact package for transport. With the Arms out and ready for flight it appears to have a wider prop span that the Mavic 2 pro. That should help with more stability in higher wind scenarios.

    Set up

    Initial set up takes about an hour or two, including the software update which only took 5 minutes. Gotta make sure you have a full batteries charged (all batteries came dead), making sure the controller is charged and linking the controller to the Mavic 3 and getting it registered with the FAA. There is a calibration you have to do with the RC controller before first flight and the controller will beep until it’s completed.

    Flight

    First off. You get up to ~46 minutes of flight time with one battery (in perfect conditions), That’s amazing. With the Fly More Combo you can theoretically get over 2 hours of flight time. Flying time will vary with each persons situation. If you’re fighting the wind (DJI claims up to 27mph wind resistance) then your flight time will be reduced. I used the manual take off and it of course worked flawlessly.

    The DJI fly app and the LAANC authorization system are not connected. I ended up having to drive about 5 miles out of town as I live too close to an airport to fly this in my back yard even though I should be allowed to fly up to 200 feet. But I couldn’t even take off. Once I reached the “Safe” area I flew this drone out to approximately 400 yards purposely to use the RTH (Return to Home) feature. Also, O3+ extends video transmission range to a maximum distance of 15 km. I set the return altitude to 200 feet and it flawlessly flew back to the take off spot with in 2 feet. Omnidirectional obstacle sensing works very well. I flew straight towards a fence and the Mavic 3 then flew over the fence. Such great improvements over the Mavic 2 pro as the Mavic 3 has more obstacle avoidance cameras (6) than the Mavic 2. Please be aware that if you put the drone into sport mode the obstacle avoidance system turns off. Also this thing screams in Sport mode. So Much fun to fly, just watch out for them branches….yes Ive ruined two props already but luckily the fly more combo comes with replacements.

    ActiveTrack 5.0 is really well done. I walked around 2 football fields and the Mavic 3 followed me the whole way, really neat and a great way to capture them cinematic and active shots. Mavic 3 is able to track in all directions and adjust tracking angles smoothly for more natural results. Please note that ActiveTrack is not available at video resolutions higher than 4K or frame rates over 60fps.

    Camera System

    DJI Mavic 3 has a dual camera system. This camera system has been tuned by Hasselblad. One with a 20 MP 4/3” CMOS camera with f/2.8-f/11 stops of dynamic range, with a 24mm FOV. Another with a fixed 4.4 aperture and 28x zoom lens (in Explore mode). 7X zoom is optical the rest is a digital zoom. Of course once you go past the 7X optical zoom your picture and video quality falls off quite a bit and gets very soft. But it's still an awesome feature to be able to zoom in 28X.

    I left the camera system on Auto for the first few flights so that I could see the quality that auto brings and to be honest I am super impressed with the quality. I didn’t do any color grading or Post editing on the initial shots I took (one shot included in my review) with the DJI Mavic 3 Drone. I think most people will be happy with the Auto settings this drone uses. BUT, The DJI Mavic 3 supports 10-bit D-Log color profile and is capable of shooting in 5.1K at 50fps which is absolutely insane.

    There are intelligent features coming like: Hyperlapse, Mastershots, FocusTrack, QuickShots, Panorama as well as 4K/120fps and 4G transmission capability which will all be available through a firmware update in January 2022

    Overall

    I have been super impressed with the DJI Mavic 3. Great build quality, fast but yet quieter than that of the Mavic 2 Pro. Phenomenal Hasselblad dual camera system. If I had one complaint it would be the 8GB of internal storage is not good enough for the price on the drone. Also the camera features that we have to wait till Jan 2022 for. They should have been ready on release. Also not having LAANC connected to the DJI fly app is a real pain in the butt for those of us that live close to an airport. Just my opinion.

    Stellar Combo; Waiting on promised firmware

    New Mandatory Requirement - For any person wishing to fly an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), you now (as of June 2021) need to complete training and take a quiz to receive a certificate and be able to produce the certificate upon request from an enforcement authority. While it is called The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST), it is required for all drone pilots even if you have your Part 107 Drone License.

    Since I am only flying this drone recreationally, I took the TRUST training and quiz late one evening. If you plan to make money with the drone, you must get your Part 107 Drone License in addition to the TRUST certificate. The TRUST training, quiz and certificate are free, so there really isn't any good reason to skip it. The training is done in 4 parts with quiz questions at the end of each part. There are a total of 23 questions, I believe you can attempt each question as many times as you need to get it right and at the end you are presented with your certificate so you can print it out and keep it in your drone bag.

    I took the training and quiz from uavcoach.com. These are lifetime certificates so they don't need to be renewed.

    Next, since the Mavic 3 weighs greater than 0.55 lbs., you must register it with the FAA, print your registration card and mark your drone with your registration number. It can be as cheap as $5 from the FAA DroneZone for a Recreational Flyer registration (faadronezone.faa.gov).

    Note: I used a label maker to print my registration number to affix to the Mavic 3. However, the texture of the Mavic 3 body has a slight stippling to the point where the label would not adhere. I had to use transparent tape to hold the label in place.

    Now onto the Mavic 3 review.

    Package Contents:

    With the Mavic 3 Fly More Combination package, you get a 3 in 1 convertible bag that comfortably holds all the included accessories. The convertible bag is quite impressive. It seems very durable with heavy stitching at all the logical strain points, and has metal clasps. It has numerous pockets and several of them have a soft liner. But most impressive is that it is convertible to three styles. The default is a hand bag with a nice durable hand strap. Unzipping both sides of the back pocket you get access to the two sides of the single shoulder strap with a nice clasp to hold them together. But if you undo the main clasps and open the top flap it has a large zippered compartment that contains two shoulder straps making it a backpack with a large added compartment.

    Included with the Mavic 3 Fly More combination over and above the standard version is the aforementioned bag, a total of 12 propellors. 2 extra batteries, a charging dock with space for all 3 batteries and a 4 pack of Neutral Density Filters.

    The Cine Premium Combo improves on the Fly More Combo with an upgraded remote with built in screen, an additional USB-C to USB-C cable, and a second pack of Neutral Density Filters. However, inside the Mavic 3, the Cine Premium upgrades the internal storage from 8 GB to 1 TB and provides you with Apple ProRes video compression.

    App:

    For any new DJI owners, the DJI Fly App does not appear in the Google Play Store, you can search for it in your browser and download it from DJI. But you'll need to go in to your device settings and allow the install from 3rd Party locations.

    After everything was charged up (drone batteries arrive with no charge), I established the pairing of the remote to the drone with the DJI Fly App and the firmware update was waiting for me.

    Flight:

    After the latest firmware was done, I was itching to get out and fly this beast of a drone. I have a phone with a thick case on it. I had to remove the case in order to get it to sit in the remote properly. Make sure to use the right cable adapter to connect your phone.

    Flying the Mavic 3 is a breeze. Control response is immediate. The Mavic 3 is rock steady, video transmission was also stable. The Gimbal easily compensates for momentum shifts from sudden direction changes.

    The propellors are rubber tipped. I've come to learn this is to reduce propellor noise.

    In sport mode, the Mavic 3 is speedy. It gets just above 40 mph. However, sport mode does disable obstacle avoidance, so it is best to keep that mode for open skies.

    Obstacle Avoidance:

    One of the major improvements in the Mavic 3 is the additional obstacle avoidance sensors. The additional sensors help the Mavic 3 get a clearer understanding of its surroundings. But keep in mind, these sensors require good ambient lighting to work. If there isn't enough light the DJI Fly App will indicate as such and the obstacle avoidance feature will not work.

    By default, the Mavic 3 is set to brake when it gets near an obstacle, a quick change in the settings to avoid obstacles made me a little nervous at first. As I steered my brand-new, pricey Mavic 3 towards a tree, it steered itself around the tree with seeming ease. After a few more times, I started to breathe a little easier. In some situations it would fly over the tops of the trees. In some cases it would hesitate to make a decision. That's when I would back off a little and approach with a different angle and the Mavic 3 figured out how to get around the obstacle. While the Mavic 3 utilizes its obstacle avoidance sensors well. I believe it's also using the main camera to analyze its path. If it can see a sufficient opening with the main camera, it will take it, otherwise it will hesitate.

    I live in a suburban area and I happened to see a plane ascending several miles away. The App warned me of this and I thought it was nice.

    Battery Life:

    Under ideal conditions, each battery is reported to deliver 46 minutes of flight. This is a welcome change to the first generation that gave you only 10 minutes. 46 minutes gives you ample time to get out to your shooting location, scout and plan your shot, make the shot and return safely.

    Remote battery life seems plentiful. I've gone through two drone batteries and the remote is still going strong.

    Camera Performance:

    The most anticipated feature of the Mavic 3 has been the main Hasselblad camera. It does not disappoint. Without changing any color settings or using any of the included filters, the camera offers stunning pictures and video with up to 5K and depending on the resolution, up to 200 frames/second. I'm attaching a few scaled down photos from my local park, nearby golf course and neighborhood after the peak Fall color change. Optically, the camera offers up to 7x zoom. Digital zoom goes up to 28x.

    Of course just about any camera does well with sufficient light. The 4/3 sensor really impressed me with its color balance while I was flying past sunset. While I was getting great video of the darkening night sky with the moon just peeking through the clouds and city lights off in the distance. I was really impressed when I panned down and the White Balanced kicked in and brightened up the forest canopy. Unfortunately, I forgot to snap a picture of this and stills from video don't give as much pop.

    Negatives:

    Even with all these positive aspects, I still found 3 negative points on the Mavic 3.

    The first is the most disappointing, at the time of its release the Mavic 3 has major features missing.

    ActiveTrack, the ability to follow a selected subject in a variety of ways

    QuickShots, the ability to shoot cinematic style video while executing pre-programmed motion paths

    MasterShots, like QuickShots, but combines 10 maneuvers in sequence

    Panorama Mode, the ability to stitch several individual pictures together

    QuickTransfer, transfer materials from the drone to your mobile device without connecting it with the Remote Control

    These missing features are promised in the January 2022 firmware update. I'm sure the update also improves on the Obstacle Avoidance as well. But, I was very disappointed to learn these features weren't included at launch. They're not even mentioned in the 1.0 release of the Owner's Manual. It just seems like DJI was willing to ship out an incomplete product just to get holiday sales.

    The second is the performance of the DJI Assistant Desktop App. The DJI Assistant Desktop App allows you to plug in the Mavic 3 to your computer using the USB-A to USB-C cable in order to apply firmware updates (if you don't want to do it with your mobile device), make settings changes, and transfer media. However, when I went to transfer media, it failed. This could be because I have Windows 10 with folder protection on, but once I set the folder permissions up, it should have downloaded but didn't.

    The third is related to the second. Since I couldn't transfer media using the DJI Assistant, I mounted the microSD card through the connected Mavic 3 and was able to transfer the files needed. While the Mavic 3 is charging through my USB port, I'm not sure if it's charging fast enough to keep up with the discharge rate of having the Mavic 3 on, with its internal fans running and the lighting still flashing. Therefore I occasionally pull the memory card. But the microSD card is inserted upside down with the lip of the card just millimeters away from an overhang so I can't my fingernail in to get a hold of the card to remove it. I have to use tweezers to pull out the card.

    While the DJI Mavic 3 is truly impressive with its easy, stable yet powerful flight characteristics, long battery life, stunning camera performance, the disappointment of the missing features, performance of the DJI Assistant Desktop App, and the design and location of the micro-SD slot combined to take off one star. Even shipping out a basic level of the missing features would have been enough to earn a stellar rating, but missing features really brings focus on an incomplete release. The Fly More combination with the extra batteries, and the convertible bag is highly recommended.

    Awesome video quality, great feel during flight

    This drone is amazing.

    The price tag is steep compared to the previous Mavic models. But in my opinion, this drone has many features that should make up for the price difference. The drone has amazing video quality, 5.1K video on a 4/3 sensor looks phenomenal from the sky. The ability to easily add ND filters is another big plus! The camera can shoot full auto, or you can go full manual - the choice is yours. The battery life is pretty good coming from the Mavic 2 Pro. The telephoto lens feature is alright -- cool feature but not something I would use on the daily.

    For the "fly more" accessories, the bag is well built and holds a lot of equipment. The multi-battery platform is absolutely necessary. The extra batteries are a must have. The ND filters come in a nice little holder to protect them.

    The new obstacle sensing feature is great. The Mavic 2 would just stop. This drone actually picks a safe route around an obstacle it encounters.

    I gave this drone a five star rating -- however, I do have some things to point out.

    The intelligent flight features (tracking, quickshots, etc.) those are locked. I heard through the Youtube influencers that they are locked out until a new firmware update drops in January.

    The system STILL does not talk to any LAANC approval apps. If you get the clearance to fly in a "no fly zone" -- you are still not flying even with FAA approval.

    In my opinion, the video gets a little noisier than what I would anticipate for some ISO settings. I thought 1600 was a little too noisy.

    AE lock and generic LUT preview is missing from the new DJI app.

    The controller feels misweighted when you have your phone sitting at the top, compared to the bottom on the M2 controller.

    Overall -- great drone, many improvements. Time will tell how the new features will pan out once they launch. The drone as-is without the new features is worth the money.

    If you are coming from a Mavic 2 -- you might not feel like shelling out the cash for an upgrade, but if you plan on using use your drone a lot, this is worth it.

    Unmatched Performance and Amazing Quality!

    Amazing quality! Such a beautiful drone, the video quality is spectacular and a huge upgrade from the Mavic 2 Pro. If you’re on the fence about buying one and not sure if you want to upgrade from your Air 2S or 2 Pro, believe me when I tell you that the details are so much more enhanced on this drone! I have not tested the flight time as of yet to its full capacity but out of the box, the Fly More Combo offers quality accessories that would cost you more if bought separately. The 2 additional batteries (over $200 each) makes it such a great bundle, the bag is top notch and feels like quality! Get this drone, you won’t regret it!

    DJI Batteries are amazing!

    I have had a Mavic 2 Zoom for about a year now, and I bought the fly more kit for it as well. Having 3 batteries was solid, but I wanted to grab a 4th one.

    These batteries do not disappoint. I have never had any issues with them once I learned the proper way to take care of them. These are LiPo batteries, so they need special treatment in order to stay in tip top shape, but if you take care of them, store them properly when not in use, and charge them properly, you will have no issues and great flying experiences.

    OEM battery for the Mavic 2 Pro

    A must have for Mavic 2 owners. Trust me when I say that 30 minutes is not enough. You're going to want at least two more batteries. Advertised as 30 minutes flight time, the Mavic 2 pro goes through these in 22-24 minutes.

    I recently went on a trip and regretted not having more batteries due to the fact that there was just too much to see. They are pricey, but it's the only solution to flying more.

    Intelligent Flight Battery for Mavic 2

    I bought this additional battery for my Mavic 2 Pro because I wanted the additional flying time when I am shooting away from a power source. The battery is a great product and allows for around 30 minutes of flying time when fully charged.

    A benefit with the smart battery is it will begin to discharge power after an extended period of inactivity to save on the aging of the battery. When the battery begins to discharge this energy after a long period of time, it can produce a little heat, but not enough to be alarmed. This helps stop the battery from warping and being damaged. So realistically, you can’t charge the battery way in advance and store it away for a long period of time for the future because the battery will just end up discharging the power and it will add to the smart battery’s total cycle count (the age of the battery). Any battery is usually only effective for a certain amount of cycles, a large amount to not be worried about, then as the cycle amount reaches a certain point, the battery begins to slowly lose it’s ability to retain as much of a charge. The point here is, constantly charging the smart battery to have it discharge from inactivity is just adding pointless age to the battery’s life. Don’t do this constantly with the smart battery and plan ahead to charge only a few days before a flight.

    These batteries are built to last and will be good for a long life. I have a total of four intelligent fight batteries and they provide me with more than enough time of flying on my trips.

    No issues, a solid battery with great endurance!

    Picked up my 4th DJI Intelligent Flight battery for the Mavic 2 Pro and I'm very happy with it. These batteries are durable and I've never had a problem with them. I used to have a Phantom 4 and I would have issues with those batteries swelling and becoming unusable, but I haven't had any problems with these. Even after a gimbal defect caused my Mavic to crash, the battery was still in operable condition and survived. Highly recommended!

Don’t do this constantly with the smart battery and plan ahead to charge only a few days before a flight.

    These batteries are built to last and will be good for a long life. I have a total of four intelligent fight batteries and they provide me with more than enough time of flying on my trips.

    No issues, a solid battery with great endurance!

    Picked up my 4th DJI Intelligent Flight battery for the Mavic 2 Pro and I'm very happy with it. These batteries are durable and I've never had a problem with them. I used to have a Phantom 4 and I would have issues with those batteries swelling and becoming unusable, but I haven't had any problems with these. Even after a gimbal defect caused my Mavic to crash, the battery was still in operable condition and survived. Highly recommended!

    Extra batteries are a must if you plan on taking this drone out. They are pricy but it’s better than just packing up and going home after your original battery dies.

    In stor3, so no waiting on shipping...WIN!

    These were great props for my mini 2. Make no mistakes about it...these particular propellers are for the mavic mini...which means they are a bit louder than what came stock with the mini 2, but nothing to Get worked up about.

    Not to mention, the silver stripes on these ppl rops look so much better (my opinion) than the upgraded props with orange stripes

    Mavic Mini Replacement Propellers

    These replacement propellers for the Mavic Mini is great. No problems with them and the Drone flies smoothly with them and low noise. Always get spares, you never know when you need them. Tip - never reuse the screws, always use a new set of screws that came with the bundle.

    Personal Item sized bag and a good one at that!

    Remember pre pandemic when we could travel? Remember how crappy airlines are? Imagine carrying thousands in camera gear on a carry on size bag only to be told there is no more space and it has to be checked in. Ugh...(dramatically shudders)..that very thought keeps me up at night. Well fret not, this bag will be your savior...I mean when we travel again (so please wear a mask and get vaccinated so we can all travel in cramped seats and eat bad airline food to go to wonderful places and make amazing memories but I digress). This bags super power is that it can safely accommodate a camera, a lens, a laptop, various misc items and still be small enough to be considered a PERSONAL ITEM sized bags. It will fit under the seat in front of you. Rejoice!

    light weight, flexible, good value for the price

    I was looking for an inexpensive bag that would protect my photographic equipment ( one camera body, two lenses, spare battery and SSD ) and also hold a small laptop. It does all that and the protection is reasonable. Sure, there are some bags that are less expensive but if you're going to rely on it to protect a thousand dollars of equipment why scrimp on the investment too much?

    Fun new hobby!

    Great little drone for the price. It takes excellent quality pictures. The video is great too, but a little shaky because it has no gimbles. It bounces up and down a lot as you move forward. Set up is a little complicated, having to be calibrated before each use, but calibration becomes pretty routine after a few times. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the battery takes a long time to charge, and I cannot find a spare battery to purchase anywhere. I have searched the internet and have not found a compatible battery. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

    These goggles are a game changer. If you are still flying on analog and are thinking of upgrading to digital you won’t regret your purchase. These goggles allow you to see everything and can increase your confidence during flight drastically. There is a bit of light leak from the corners of the goggles as well as I upgraded the stock antennas to create a more compact setup. All in all these goggles are worth every penny and I don’t know how I ever flew FPV without them.

    Perfect goggles for DJI Air Unit

    They worked flawlessly with my DJI Air Unit straight out of the box. They came with the right firmware. Also it was great that Best Buy had them in stock while other retailers including those specialized in drone gear were out of them.

    Fast and efficient!

    When I make a purchase, I can do it with knowledge! A lot of research goes into me spending $600. These goggles are above all! They arrived quickly, about five days. The box was pristine, and everything performed as expected. I have already recommended my copilot purchased their goggles at Best Buy.

    Very good

    Best digital FPV Goggles out, much clearer then analog. I was nervous these would be locked into the DJI Drone only but it is not. Minus a star for the complexed/unclear way to update and register / sync them. It's like sitting in the middle of a theater flying your drone around (the perceived image in front of your eyes)

    Worth it for the extra flight time

    These High Capacity batteries cost a little more than the regular Phantom 4 battery, but you get about 3-4 extra minutes of flight time, and as a seasoned drone pilot, those extra minutes can be very valuable when you're trying to get the most out of every shot. Best Buy recently had them on sale for about $150, which is a great price! If you can find them on sale, it's definitely worth buying!

    I am a professional drone pilot. These batteries are an improvement, to the original DJI Phantom 4 line of products. They are rated at 30 minutes and work in any of the Phantom 4 drones. I currently have 9 batteries and can easily fly for more than 3 hours. An excellent choice! Buy it!

    It works for the Phantom 4 standard as well if anyone was interested. I am a cinematographer and I use my drone almost every single shoot. it is very much worth the extra like 40 buck is think it is. it lasts a lot longer and dies very steadily so you don't have to get into the air and then look down 10 seconds later and its almost dead. Great product id recommend it if you wanna be in the air a bit longer.

    Hassle, gets hot and won’t remove from drone.

    When the battery heats up inside the drone, it gets stuck and can’t be removed. We googled it afterwards and this is a common problem with the battery/drone. There’s a hack available where you can ‘oil’ the battery before putting it in but we haven’t done it yet. For the price and life expectancy of this battery, it’s kind of a hassle.

    Propellers Work But Are Overpriced

    Works well but I think that for the price, two sets of propellers should be provided, not just one. Unfortunately, there is no competition for Mavic so they get away with charging what they want.

  • Review by Chopstix, 8 out of 10
    Great value. Bag could be a little bit larger.

    This kit is a great price for everything that comes with. If you do any reasonable amount of flying, you are definitely going to need the extra batteries. The car charger is a must if you travel. Good practice says you should replace props after a certain number of hours of use so having extras whether you ever crash or not is also a must.

    Here are some things that you should be aware of:

    - Everything fits inside of this bag however it does fit extremely snug. I believe the bag is better suited for an afternoon of flying when it is not necessary for you to take everything... Just the aircraft, controller and batteries. I don’t use this bag for every day carry or storage simply for that reason. It’s a really nice bag, it just needs to be perhaps 1/2 inch larger and all dimensions.

    - The charging station is sequential which means it will charge one battery at a time starting with the battery that has the most amount of power in it. To charge three batteries it takes some hours so don’t expect to attach three or four low batteries and be out the door in an hour.

    - The kit does not come with a 120V charger, only the car charger. The charger that comes with the drone fits the charging station as does the car charger.

    This kit is a must have in my opinion. The only reason it does not get five stars is because of how snug the bag is.

    Sound like a good deal, but...

    It's sound like a good deal buying a kit that you save over $200.

    But there are junks DJI jacking up the price,

    Bag: Do you want to keep your expensive item in a tiny bag? And it is barely fit, also not all accessories fit. You're end-up need something for the rest of the accessories, or drone.

    Car Charger: Are you prepared before going out to flight or any event? It also come with 2+1 batteries (90 minutes max) so you should have enough power in those batteries. Furthermore, how long it take to charge a battery. I am not going to keep my car running for hours to charge those batteries. Or using the home charger is a good solution.

    Power bank: This is stupid, Those batteries are for my drone ($160 plus tax). not phone or else. I have something else for my phone, tablet, etc... I suggest get some thing else less the $30 to charge your personal items.

    Ok, Batteries, Battery charging hub, and Propellers are the items I need. If I buy only what I need, I will end up every close to the kit. And that is the reason I keep this kit not returning them.

    Forget about about saving over $200. I did my research trying to sell them on ebay: Bag less them $50 free shipping; power band $5-$10 free shipping, car charger $30 free shipping etc...

    This is just my opinion. Please do not hate me if you have different opinion. I will keep it because I paid only around $50 for those "junk" and I will find something to do with it.

    Worth The Buy

    the fly more kit is definitely worth the buy! the extra batteries and charging station alone make it worth it. The case is a tad bit small for anyone whose going to use it professionally, or if you also use the smart controller. But that's wat backpacks are for! It is still a very nice case if you're just hobby lobbing and have the standard controller.

    Wish the bag was just a little bigger!

    If your really into flying your drone this definitely makes sense. I initially went in to buy two extra batteries and stumbled across this package. It only made sense to get it. I saw it as a necessity for my drone that came out of the box with no bag or case to put it in. I just wish it had more room to hold the smart controller which came with the drone package I purchased.

    Another great product from DJI

    Man! This bag is amazing! First off when you purchase this kit you get a much needed car charger. You can’t enjoy your investment to the max without the ability to charge on the go and have plenty of batteries. I use my first battery to expire the scene and set up for the shoot. The vehicle charger will also speed up charging about 25% from my experience. The bag is very nice! A lot of thought went into the organization. There is a protective flap on the inside that flips up and stays so you can protect your controller. I have been able to put all the content in the kit in the bag. It does take some trial and error but you can watch some clips I. The net to see how others pack. I’m able to put the vehicle charger all required accessories for the mission and 4 batteries although it does make the bag heavy and could lead to premature failure at some point for overloading the design. This kit will give you what you need. If your able pick up a few more batteries if your like me and want to fly for several hours at a time. Take good care of the batteries and they will last a long time.

    Good Package, Essential for Mavic 2

    A helpful kit for when you're getting started with a new Mavic 2 Pro or Zoom.

    Includes the extra batteries, which are a must, and also a car charger, which is invaluable when working on larger jobs, and allows you to charge up your used batteries while you continue to fly with another. (Doesn't charge particularly fast, but if you have several batteries, just make sure to put the last one used on the charger soon as it cools down some)

    Also a handy case, which you can stash the smaller screenless remote in. However, you still have to buy a separate case for the drone itself, so the bag is only good for in the meanwhile.

    However, after purchasing another case for the drone and accessories, we resused the Fly-More Bag for one of our other pieces of equipment, so that worked out nicely.

    Poorly Executed by DJI Buyer Beware

    No Live streaming *Facebook has blocked the interface from its platform *youtube cannot authenticate

    No Third Part Apps or App Store to add anything other than what is loaded.

    Very poor performance while trying to use the editor to make a short video.

    Forced to upload to sky pixel when sharing to anything.

    Automatically shuts off if not linked to aircraft, this is a problem doing direct file transfers.

    Inability to update firmware without attaching to PC and using the assistant software (very poor update process)

    Many bugs in software that present inconsistent operation (like you cant have an SD card in the controller while updating).

    Android version is outdated, over two years old from 2017.

    Must download maps in long thin sections, no ability to select map data area.

    Screen Scratches very easily, must use screen protector.

    The only thing that works properly on this controller is the flight controls and the screen is brighter than a phone.

    Not in any way worth 650$

    No substantial benefits over stock controller

    Pros and Cons of Smart controller (SC) in comparison with my stock controller & iPhone 11 Pro Max combo are listed below. Hope this helps you make right decision for you.

    Pros:

    Superb Build quality. Feels great to hold this one than stock controller

    Love that it has two separate dials, one dedicated for camera zoom and another for gimble upward/downward rotation. Similarly I like that there are two separate buttons for picture and video and you don’t have to toggle

    Speaker quality is really good

    Screen brightness is good but nothing extraordinary in comparison with my iPhone 11 Pro Max

    Cons:

    Battery life not so good. Once fully charged it last about 3 to 4 flights but that’s it. Stock controller battery lasts much longer

    I found smart controller always lagging transmission range by 100 to 300 ft in comparison with stock controller. Difference is small but i was hoping for parity with stock controller at the least. Also I did not see any difference in range using Air 2s which uses Ocusync 3.0.

    Does not support most apps other than that are pre-installed. Also you have to use a kind of hack to install additional apps. I don’t think they receive auto updates and also don’t think SC has enough power to support them to run concurrently

    To download content from SC to your phone you have to use DJI GO 4 app which is not the same app that is used to fly Mavic air 2 or air 2s i.e. DJI FLY. So it add a couple of extra steps and time to transfer content from SC to phone

    It’s almost impossible to edit your content directly on SC because you cannot change the orientation of the app and therefore video looks as tiny as thumbnail in edit mode on DJI fly app on SC

    SC needs internet connection to show maps accurately. You will have to connect it to your phone at the places you don’t have internet. Obviously you don’t have to deal with this when using your phone

    Bottom 3 cons were a deal breaker for me. So i ended up returning the controller. It just made a lot of sense to use my smart phone and save from all the hassles that i mentioned…. This controller costs $750, so i was hoping for substantial improvements/ benefits over stock controller which are clearly not there. You can always purchase hood for $30 for your stock controller if sun glare if an issue. If you have money to spare, my recommendation is to use it to upgrade your phone or save it for a newer drone

    The best controller ever

    I'm a proud owner of this controller since 2019 before DJI hike the price and I will never go back to the original DJI controller, I got spoiled. Mainly I got this SC for it's ultrabright display to easily see better in direct sunlight and it outperforms extremely well. Also, I love the way it fast connects to the drone as soon as you power it and I don't have to deal with connecting cables or setting and placing a mobile device. I can easily fly four intelligent batteries on a full charge before I have to recharge it but you can also extend the flight time by connecting the SC to a powerbank. Totally love it!

    Expensive but worth every penny even for a beginne

    I am a new to flying drones. I first started with the control that came in the combo pack and found it a bit cumbersome having to take the case off my cell phone every time I used it... This solved that problem. It is just a turn on both the drone and controller and it sinks up right away and you are ready to fly. I was very impressed on how visible the screen was in bright sunlight. Much better than my iPhone I used with the other controller... Yes this is expensive but well worth the cost even for a beginner like me..

    Works with Mavic Air 2 as well

    Update the firmware and you will see the Mavic Air 2 is now supported. I have both and can verify. It was a little difficult getting the firmware to update. The trick was to make sure all items were selected in the help settings and do a factory reset, then it updated flawlessly.

    The right wheel becomes a zoom wheel if you own the Mavic Air 2, this is awesome! The screen is much brighter then my phone and I can see pretty good in daylight. Very happy with this purchase!

    Breathtaking FPV Drone!

    DJI has done it again! FPV drones are starting to pick up in popularity and DJI has taken an opportunity to create their version of an FPV drone. As someone who has not flown FPV, flying this drone has been a thrilling experience so far. Long flight time(for an FPV drone) and stunning pictures and videos are some of the features this FPV drone has to offer. This drone may not be for all FPV users but if you ever wanted to dip your feet into this hobby, this drone is an excellent starting spot.

    ==========================================================

    IN-THE-BOX/SET UP:

    The DJI FPV Drone Combo comes with everything that you need to start flying FPV. DJI even included extra propellers, control sticks, and a green top shell. Unfortunately, there is no carrying bag/case included for the drone. Carrying everything that is required to fly this drone is a bit of a hassle and having some type of bag included would have been nice.

    Set-up does take a while to do. The drone MUST be activated before anything else or otherwise it will not fly. Recent firmware updates must also be installed for the drone, goggles, and controller before taking off as well. This can all be done through the DJI Assistant App or the DJI Fly App. Fortunately, DJI made this process easy to do. The following links should be helpful in setting up your drone. I also recommend charging the drone, googles battery, and controller completely before flying.

    MANUALS, USER GUIDES, SOFTWARE: https://www.dji.com/dji-fpv/downloads

    VIDEO TUTORIALS: https://www.dji.com/dji-fpv/video

    DJI FLY APP: https://www.dji.com/downloads/djiapp/dji-fly

    Once you have activated your drone and all updates are installed, you should be ready to go! Also, note that this drone must be registered with the FAA since the drone is over 250g (weighs 800g), this can be done through the following website: https://www.faa.gov/uas/getting_started/register_drone/

    There is a small fee of 5 dollars to register the drone. Not registering the drone can result in regulatory and criminal penalties.

    ==========================================================

    FEATURES:

    The drone contains plenty of features to help you get into FPV and to help maximize your FPV experience. Getting into FPV can be expensive since most people buy all the parts and end up building their drones. Getting into this hobby also requires knowledge in radio receivers/controllers, how to solder, how to safely charge LiPo batteries and more. DJI has made this hobby easier to get into by removing the middleman and providing everything that you need to start flying FPV.

    This drone offers three flight modes. N mode is where I recommend everyone starts. This mode offers all the traditional drone flight controls. The speed is capped and there is obstacle avoidance enabled. The drone does not have complete obstacle avoidance as the googles will warn you there is something close to the drone, but the drone will not stop you from running into a tree. S mode allows more freedom and allows for a more FPV immersive experience. In this mode, the drone is a lot faster, and obstacle avoidance is disabled. M mode is manual mode. This mode is disabled by default for safety. You will need to play around with a couple of settings to enable this mode. In this mode, the drone is a lot faster, the max speed in this mode is 87mph. I was a bit frightened when I first enabled M mode. I’m not too experienced in flying a drone manually and did have trouble controlling it for the most part. Fortunately, I did not crash the drone which inevitably could’ve happened if it weren’t for the emergency brake button on the controller. This button automatically enabled the brake and hover on the drone and switched me into N mode. Anyone experienced with flying drones manually would have probably had a better time in this mode. DJI offers a virtual flight app for practice flying in manual mode but unfortunately, this app is only available to IOS users as of 03/2021. I own an Android and will have to wait until the Android app is out to practice and hone my manual flying skills. There is currently no set date for when this app will be available for Android devices.

    The drone does have smart Return-to-Home (RTH) which can be activated through the controller. This feature is fairly accurate for the most part. From the various times, I’ve tested this feature, RTH almost always returns closely to the take-off spot. This feature is automatically enabled when your drone is at low battery as well as if the signal is lost for more than a couple of seconds. Not many people know this feature exists but the LED lights on the drone’s arms are customizable through the goggle’s settings. I recommend having them off when flying during the daytime to maximize battery life.

    ==========================================================

    GOGGLES/CONTROLLER:

    The DJI FPV drone comes with a newly designed controller and the DJI FPV Goggles V2. Both are extremely well built and designed. The Goggles need to be connected to the small battery pack to power them on. The battery pack does last a decent amount of time and should be sufficient for a couple of flights. The goggles provide high-quality video transmission from the drone even at high distances. There is little to low latency going on which allows for smooth video throughout the flight. This is due to the DJI OcuSync 3.0 transmission system. The goggles also have a couple of controls to allow you to navigate the settings. A 5D button to scroll through the menu, a back button, and a shutter/record button. (microSD card required)

    The new DJI controller is satisfying to hold. The controller almost reminds me of a PS4 controller with the layout of the buttons and overall design. The controller’s control sticks are stored on the inner sides of the handle. Some of the buttons are customizable through the goggle’s settings. On the right side of the controller, there is the camera/record button, a switch that moves the gimble to three different positions(this button is customizable but this is the default), and the cruise control button(available in S mode). On the left side, there is the emergency brake button/RTH (hold button to start RTH), the flight mode switch, and a manual gimble adjustment dial. On the front, there is a power button and a customizable button. The battery life on this controller is great, so far it has lasted me a couple of flights.

    ==========================================================

    FLYING EXPERIENCE/VIDEO & CAMERA:

    Now for the flying experience. I have truly enjoyed flying this drone in general. The FPV experience is simply breathtaking. This FPV experience helps you get that birds-eye view that our friends in the sky experience. Many FPV enthusiasts might not consider this drone a true FPV drone but the drone does have enough features to fully maximize the FPV experience. FPV is usually a lot of manual flying, while I could not test the manual flying to its highest capabilities due to my lack of skills, I seriously respect people who do this as a hobby. Flying manually is indeed difficult and one day I would love to be doing flips and rolls with the drone. One of my favorite things to do with this drone was to fully max out its speed. This drone is fast and seeing this first-hand was enjoyable.

    The video/camera quality on this drone is truly beautiful. The camera can take up to 4K at 60fps of HD video and take 4K photos. There is a 150-degree field of view which allows for an even more immersive experience. The camera does show the drone’s propellers in both the photos and video which did not bother me too much but may be a problem for those who are looking to use this drone for cinematography. I noticed that this drone does have electronic image stabilization which worked well as a lot of the video I recorded came out smooth and crystal-clear. The googles do also record video but this footage is at 810p at 60fps.

    ==========================================================

    CONCLUSION:

    Overall, flying DJI’s FPV drone has been an entertaining experience for someone who has never flown FPV. Flying FPV is truly breathtaking, and I would recommend everyone to experience it. Now, who is this drone for? I don’t know too much about FPV flying but I can see why this drone may not be for FPV enthusiasts. FPV drones are usually light and easy to repair. This drone is a lot heavier and can be significantly more expensive if it breaks. FPV enthusiasts may also find the safety features on this drone fairly restricting. On the other hand, if you have always wanted to dip your feet into FPV, I would think this is a great way to do so. Not only does this drone contain many safety features to prevent you from crashing but it is already completely built to fly in FPV without having extensive knowledge in the field. If this sounds good to you, I would highly recommend this FPV drone to you.

    High powered fun in a box

    One of the first things they tell you in the instructions for the DJI FPV drone is that the device is not a toy. After a few days of fooling around with it, I’m not entirely sure I can agree with that. It’s true that the drone has the power, maneuverability, and advanced features you’d expect from a professional drone platform. But at the end of the day, the key objective with this drone seems to have been to build something fun rather than something practical.

    Usually I wouldn’t talk too much about the unboxing experience, but in this case I feel it’s worth it as it turned out to be far more involved than I initially expected. Since this drone is large and fast enough to require registration it’s not something you can just pick up and fly immediately. Before the thing will even work you need to create an account with DJI and permanently bind the drone to it, something which proved a lot more involved than expected since the version of the required DJI Fly app that you can download from the Google and iPhone app stores isn’t the one which supports the FPV drone. For all I know this is something that only early adopters like me will have to deal with, but in case it’s not I’ll try to save you a few hours and let you know that the correct version can be downloaded from DJI’s website. Once this was done and the drone was activated firmware updates were required for each of the three parts in the combo, a process which took about half an hour in total and drained a good chunk of the batteries for the headset and drone.

    Once I’d gotten the unit ready to fly though, the overall user experience improved dramatically. In what I’d assume was an effort to keep weight down, the FPV doesn’t use the folding prop design found in some of their other popular offerings. It opts instead for relatively stubby fixed props which, while quite powerful, feel noticeably more fragile and really need to be removed when the drone isn’t in use for their own protection. To make this as easy as possible they’ve adopted a toolless design that lets you pop them on or pull them off just by pressing down and twisting the rotor, making setup in the field a breeze. The controller is perhaps the most ergonomic drone controller I’ve ever used, opting for a streamlined ergonomic design closer to what you’d get from a high-end gaming console than the typical bricks that come with most RC vehicles. And all the controls are well textured and laid out to allow you to find them even with your eyes closed, a necessity given that you’ll likely be flying with the included FPV goggles on most of the time. The screens are sharp and bright, lag times are exceptionally low (though definitely still noticeable when the range opens up or you start pulling off complicated maneuvers) and it’s light enough to keep it from being a nuisance. And the image quality you get from the drone with DJI’s digital FPV system is a marvel to behold. I’ve tried a few FPV headsets like this before (almost all of which use analog signals rather than digital) and the difference between them and this is night and day. The image is clear, movement is crisp as can be, and the signal is rock solid.

    Unlike most of the drones which DJI has put out, which look built for level flight and hovering, the FPV has a distinctly angular built which makes it clear that its default mode is meant to be moving forward at high speeds. Don’t get me wrong, it can still hover when it needs to, but when you see it hanging in the air like that you can’t help but feel like it’s slightly disappointed in you for your choices. This more aggressive shape makes for an absolutely striking profile both in the air and on the shelf and is made even more impressive by the translucent gray fairing it ships with allowing you to see the tightly packed electronics inside.I almost immediately swapped out this fairing for the more visible bright green one that shipped in the box so that my spotter would have an easier time seeing it at a distance, which gave me the opportunity to look at the interior though, and I very much liked what I saw. As far as I could tell all the electronics within the drone are split into discrete and replaceable modules rather than assembled into a single board, with all those modules being held together by screws rather than glue or fragile plastic tabs like you’d get with most electronics these days. Fortunately, I have not yet crashed spectacularly enough to need to put this to the test, but I get the sense that it wouldn’t take a ton of effort to effect even major repairs to the unit if required.

    The drone also is where you run into a few of the potential weaknesses. The 4K camera mounted here is very good, producing sharp images and video even at speed, but you can’t help but get the sense that it’s there first and foremost to give you a better experience as a pilot rather than to take pictures. With other DJI drones you typically get a gimbal with 3 axes of rotation. This has only one – and it only allows for vertical adjustment. What’s more the 150-degree field of view it offers can’t help but make the images it captures look a bit fish-eyed compared to what you’d get from a Mavic or Phantom, and will catch the props in the frame if it’s pointed straight forward. To be clear I don’t necessarily think this is a bad decision. Given how fast this thing goes it’s probably not a smart idea to make it easier for the pilot to look away from where they’re moving. But it is something anyone looking to use this as a filming platform should consider when choosing which drone to go with.

    So, now that we’ve gotten all that out of the way, let’s talk about arguably the most important aspect of the FPV: How is it to fly it?

    Turns out there are three different answers for this, one for each of the flight modes the drone supports.

    N mode is tailored for beginners or anyone who wants to be sure they don’t end up embedding the FPV into a tree. Speed is held down, navigation aids such as automatic obstacle detection will do their best to stop you from doing anything too reckless, and the drone will handle the more complicated maneuvers on its own. It does feel a little bit like you’re flying with training wheels on at times, but if you’ve never tried FPV flight before this is probably the best way to do it while you get used to orienting yourself without being able to actually see the drone. I also found this to be the best mode to use when taking snapshots, as it was easy to take my time adjusting the drone and its gimbal to line up the shot I wanted.

    S Mode offers a punchier experience for more confident flyers who’d prefer not to have their hand held. Speed is still limited to about 2/3rds of what the aircraft can manage but most of the other safety features are turned off, giving you the freedom to do something a bit ill advised if you really want. This was probably the most fun mode to fly in for me as everything felt extremely responsive and the footage I got in the goggles was thrilling, but you definitely need to be a lot more aware of environmental factors such as wind and it drains the battery quite fast. While I managed to avoid smashing the drone there were definitely a few close calls that made me acutely aware of how easy it would be to do, particularly if you let yourself wander into tight quarters. It seems like it would be great for shooting video, but unfortunately I can’t really attest to the results as I ended up losing the clip I shot to file corruption brought about by me pulling the battery a little too soon after landing.

    And then there is M mode – which offers full manual control.

    M mode turned out to be a lot scarier than I expected going in. I’ve flown drones on manual before, but never one with this kind of raw speed at its disposal. I did not crash or destroy anything, which I consider to be a small triumph (and a great testament to how useful the built-in emergency brake on the drone can be,) but afterwards I was more than ready for the drone to go back to holding my hand for a bit. In the hands of someone more competent than me, the kind of high-speed acrobatics you can pull off with full manual control is probably one of the biggest selling points for this drone. But I think I’m going to be spending a bit more time in the simulator to brush up my skills before I try this again.

    So, now that all is said and done, who’s this for?

    I suspect that a lot of hardcore FPV enthusiasts aren’t going to be exceptionally interested in this. Not because there’s anything wrong with the drone for that purpose, but because so much of the hobby is based in this DIY approach where the drones are constantly being modified and improved on by their pilots/support team. And as easy as the FPV appears to be to work on, it’s all so carefully engineered and laid out that I don’t see it being particularly easy or even plausible to graft entirely new parts on. And as mentioned it’s a little too pilot-focused for me to recommend it primarily as a filming platform. Which means, unfortunately, I must contradict the instructions and say that this is mostly a toy. Or perhaps a starting point for something bigger.

    This drone probably isn’t going to be able to compete with purpose built racing drones. But I don’t think there are all that many people who would ever consider sticking with FPV drones if that was the only way for them to get into the hobby either. The DJI FPV is basically a showcase for how good this tech can really be and seems to be built to be just as approachable for a brand-new pilot as it is for someone who’s been flying drones for years. As a toy it will offer you all manner of thrilling, visceral experiences and fantastic views that can delight all ages in twenty-minute increments. There really is something majestic about being able to experience the great outdoors from a bird’s eye view, and if that’s all you want this is a fantastic way to get it.

    Bird’s Eye View

    If you have ever wondered what it would be like to fly around like a bird, well you no longer have to wonder. DJI FPV Combo drone that made that a possibility and let me tell it is truly an experience. I have always been a drone enthusiast and loved flying drones around but never had the opportunity to fly one like this and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing the experience was, and to soar to new heights. The DJI FPV Combo with the goggles allows you to see what your drone’s camera captures and lets you experience everything from a bird’s eye view. Let’s go over some of the features, PROS and CONS of the DJI FPV Drone.

    Unboxing and Setup:

    The DJI FPV Combo includes everything you need for your out of this world experience. The combo includes the FPV drone, the DJI Goggles, and the DJI remote control. The kit comes with extra propellers and extra controller sticks, charging cables, charging brick, and a USB cable to connect to your phone or computer. The setup process is rather simple. Before you begin the setup process, you will need to download the DJIFLY app. The app will guide you through the setup and activation process. ***THE DRONE WILL NOT FLY WITHOUT THE ACTIVATION PROCESS***. Once the setup, installation and activation process are complete you are ready to fly.

    Features:

    Flight Modes-

    So, like I had mentioned before I have some experience flying drones, but this was my first time operating an FPV drone and it does take some getting used to. DJI has made this drone so that even a novice can safely operate the drone without crashing into things. The drone has 3 intuitive flight modes. The N or Normal mode allows for more traditional controls along with obstacle sensing, which has actually saved my drone a couple of times, is ideal for even beginners. The S for Sport, and M for Manual are the other two modes of flight. These modes offer limitless control, allowing you to perform stunts or anything you can think off all while getting the dynamic look of FPV.

    Emergency Braking and Hover Mode and Safety Features-

    This FPV drone comes equipped with an Emergency Brake and Hover mode, a feature I personally love. While operating this drone things do tend to get a bit out of hand, you just want to take this thing full speed and see this baby can do. At any point if things start to get overwhelming, or feel like your losing control, just press the hover button. Pressing the Hover button will stop and bring the drone to hover mode, and if you press and hold the Hover button it will automatically bring the drone back home and land the drone safely. This button has saved my drone a couple of time. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this feature. The DJI FPV drone has tons of security and safety features built-in to ensure safe operation. Some of the other safety features include Smart Return to Home, Low Batter Return to Home, Forward and Downward Obstacle Avoidance, Emergency Braking and Hover and Auxiliary Light which turns on automatically during low light flights.

    Video Quality and Transmission-

    The FPV drone records video at 4K/60fps up to 120 mbps with built-in auto gimble, and transmits crystal clear image to the googles from a very impressive distance of up to 6 miles. The camera on the drone has a built-in auto gimble, but also allows for manual control from the remote. The drone and the google both have a micro SD slot so that you can capture and store stunning imagery. The FPV drone offers rock steady stabilization and distortion correction allowing you to record the perfect image.

    PROS-

    Multiple Flight Modes

    Emergency Braking, Hover, Obstacle Avoidance and RTH – Best options in my opinion

    FPV via the Goggles

    4K Video Quality

    Clear image over long distance

    Solid Build Quality

    9 hour battery on remote

    3 hour batter on goggles

    CONS-

    20 Minute Battery Life for the Drone

    So, in my opinion this is just an amazing drone that offers a First-Person View that is suitable for anyone from a beginner to an expert, from a video content creator to someone just looking to fly for fun. My experience with this drone has been awesome. I would recommend anyone in the market for a drone to definitely give the DJI FPV Combo a shot. You will not be disappointed.

    I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND WATCHING THE VIDEO BELOW FOR A TUTORIAL.

    The FPV experience I've been looking for!

    TL;DR This thing can really fly! Great for those interested in FPV but more accustomed to flying other DJI drones. Amazing video live feed and recording. I recommend the upgraded foam for the googles and extra batteries. Also be sure to assign turtle mode to a custom button if you fly in M mode. Minor firmware update to maintain video recording through failsafe would be appreciated.

    It has a nice modern design and cutting edge features, as you would expect from DJI. It is very easy to pilot in N (normal) mode which offers forward and downward obstacle avoidance and uses the gimbal to maintain a consistent, level point of view. When you want to step it up a notch you can forgo the obstacle avoidance in S (sport) mode in exchange for a top speed of ~60MPH. S mode still maintains the easier flight controls of N mode with blended yaw/bank turns and altitude hold. If you are already experienced with FPV piloting, or are just feeling really brave, you have the option to flip it to M (manual) mode and take full control over all aspects of flight. While chasing side by sides in the desert I was able to hit 86MPH in this mode! The speed available coupled with the amazing picture quality really make for an amazing experience. And if you ever get too enveloped in the HD experience and find yourself in a tricky situation there is an emergency brake function that works in all modes! This thing stops amazingly fast and switches to N mode to hold altitude. I'm sure this feature will save more than a few drones, especially as I imagine this will be a few peoples first foray into FPV. Other great features that will be appreciated by veteran and newbie pilots alike include a very reliable failsafe return to home as well as an augmented H icon over your home location. This is very helpful as it can be easy to get disoriented on the longer flights this craft is capable of achieving. While chasing friends off-road and generally exploring the area I was able to travel over two miles away before the return to home suggestion popped up in the goggles. At this range I had no issues with video feed or responsiveness of controls. I averaged about 10-12 minute flight times while chasing and closer to 18 minutes just cruising. This is a great drone for long range FPV and doing mountain surfing/terrain exploration flights. The goggles are generally comfortable enough for these flight times but I do recommend getting the upgraded foam interface for added comfort and a better seal if you have issues with light leak, this fit will obviously vary person to person. Extra batteries are also a must. The drone batteries charge fairly quickly but flying is addicting and waiting sucks! Other items of note include features related to the controller and a couple of things I would like to see updated in firmware. There is an option to disable the spring on the throttle stick for M mode but I decided to not use this feature as I change modes in flight often and it's easier to fly manually with the spring activated that it is to use the assisted flight modes and manual throttle. Another feature on the controller is hidden in the menus much like enabling M mode and that is turtle mode. When enabled this allows you to right the drone by spinning two of the motors in reverse in the event you 'land' upside down. The firmware items I would like to see change have to due with the fact that the drone and DVR will automatically stop recording if they failsafe and do not auto resume on reconnect, I would prefer both to continue recording or at least the drone to record as long it's still in the air. I would also like to see a less sensitive setting for ground detection when in M mode, the on screen indicator is appreciated but the beeping is annoying while proximity flying. Definitely very happy with the drone overall This was the type of experience I really wanted when I bought a Phantom back in 2015 and was hoping for when I got the original DJI goggles for the Mavic. I ultimately turned to hobby grade FPV in the four year interim for that unique flight experience. While I still do enjoy flying whoops indoors and in tight spaces, the convenience and ease of flight the DJI provides means it will likely become my primary exploration and long range drone.

    Great For New and Experienced Flyers!

    Theres a lot to talk about so lets get right in!

    If your interested in being able to get an immersive feeling while flying through the sky like a bird then you should give this new DJI FPV Drone a look!

    The Drone

    This new drone by DJI is an amazing accomplishment. It features different modes in order to suit any level of experience and helps those interested in transitioning into FPV a smooth process.

    First there are 3 modes to accommodate any type of flyer.

    N Mode

    In this mode you will have all of the safety features turned on and will assist new flyers to enjoy a safe and controlled flight. The drone has front ahead sensors to detect obstacles and will slow the drone down to a speed which will enable you to maneuver around or prevent a crash. The downward vision sensors and infrared will detect obstacles beneath the craft and also map the texture of the ground in order to keep the drone stabilized along with GPS lock. These features are found on most intermediate to expert drones and instill confidence in the flyer to have a more enjoyable flight. This mode caps out at 31mph and will help you learn how the drone reacts to the controller inputs. This is the mode that many will stay with if they are just looking for a relaxed immersive experience. ( There is also an auxiliary light on the bottom of the drone to assist the downward vision sensors in low light conditions )

    S Mode

    This mode will give you more control and speed capping out at 61mph. You will get more thrills and speed but at the cost of the safety features mentioned above. This mode should only be used by experienced drone flyers who have been flying for a few months and should take note that S mode will turn off your sensors and the aircraft will not be able to detect anything infront or below it. S mode will be the primary flying mode for a lot of people, including myself.

    M Mode

    This is the mode that you will switch to for FULL MANUAL MODE.

    **NOTE BEFORE SWITCHING TO THIS MODE YOU SHOULD DOWNLOAD THE DJI VIRTUAL FLIGHT APP**

    The DJI Virtual Flight App is designed so that you can use the controller and goggles in connection with your smartphone and practice and get to know your drone before flying in the real world. This simulator is a MUST if you have never flew a FPV drone before and will help you understand what is required to fully stabilize the drone and fly it. I have used this simulator throughout the week and I still have a very difficult time keeping the drone level and flying it. The Manual mode truly is for highly experienced flyers. I think it will be a long time until I turn on this mode in the real world and for now Im perfectly happy with the S mode.

    The drone has 4 fixed propellers that are removable for storage. it also has heavy duty motors which make it very powerful and agile, responding to your every input. The build is nice and solid and DJI has made it so that you can repair most parts yourself without sending it in for repair should you choose to do so. The battery for the drone is quoted to last about 20 minutes max, but real world flying I was able to get about 14-15 minutes which is plenty for me and is a real upgrade from traditional FPV drone batteries. It also charges very quickly in about 50 mins from empty to full.

    Goggles

    The goggles are well built and truly amazing. You need to use a power cable that connects to a small battery pack that you can keep in your pocket. When I first put the goggles on I was amazed at how clear the video feed was. Not once did I experience a hiccup in the transmission and with DJI's new Occusync 3.0 you will have confidence knowing you have a secure connection to the drone when in flight. The goggles have 4 antennas that screw on and maintain this connection. They are also very lightweight and comfortable when your using them and the adjustable head strap is very easy to adjust. You have the ability to insert a Micro SD card into the goggles to record the Goggle view when in flight.

    The Controller

    Lightweight and great battery life, this controller also has a great design for button layout. You can switch between video recording and taking photos by pressing the camera button for about 1 second and on the left side you have a Return to Home/ Pause button. This button is very important as you can tap it once at anytime in any mode at any speed and it will immediately come to a stop and hover. This feature was designed incase you loose orientation to panic while flying the drone and to help you avoid any potential hazards. **NOTE the faster your fly the more time needed for the drone to come to a complete stop!

    The joysticks are also fully customizable and in Manual mode you will need to use the included hex wrench to remove the spring tension on the left stick so that it is in the down position by default. There is also a camera view angle button that will automatically adjust the view up or down depending on the speed your flying. The battery life on the controller is still full and dived used it a few times this week which follows suit with DJI's other controllers.

    The Drone also has customizable features such as camera correction which will remove the fish eye look in the goggles and your footage, LED colors can be changed on the drone body itself, the video codec, format and resolutions and much much more.

    For video resolutions you have 4K: 3840×2160 at 50/60fps

    FHD: 1920×1080 at 50/60/100/120fps and the maximum bitrate is 120mbps.

    To switch between videos and photos you can hold down the camera button on the goggles or controller for about 1 second.

    DJI also has some tutorials on their site to help you learn about the drone. Here are some links :

    Once subscribed you can comment and any questions you have I will try to answer for you.

    The only negative I can think of is that I wish DJI included a case or backpack with this combo package. When carrying the drone and goggles and controller and batteries and wires, its very difficult moving everything around and because the drone is so new case manufacturers won't have anything available until next month. Not a deal breaker but something to be aware of.

    Final Thoughts

    So I think this drone is truly amazing and the way DJI incorporated all of these features which allow anyone from a newly to an experienced flyer to be able to pick up this drone and go is awesome. I think they nailed it and I would recommend this to anyone looking to fly like a bird!

    Amazing freedom of flight!

    Previously FPV drones were something enthusiasts had to build for themselves from parts, mount GoPro on and learn how to fly absolutely manually with no GPS. FPV drones are extremely agile and maneuverable and can fly super fast and perform aerobatic tricks. Until now. DJI came up with this super exciting FPV drone that makes transition to FPV flying available to anyone! If you ever flown a GPS stabilized drone before - like a Mavic - you'll know that they are easy to control, they would hover in place on their own and won't drift away. DJI FPV can do it all just like a GPS drone and it can gradually put you into FPV world where you have ultimate control.

    What do we get in the box - Drone itself, 2 full sets of propellers (8 total), goggles, controller, flight battery, goggles battery, charging adapter and cables to connect it all. You'll get spare controller sticks, 2 allen wrenches and a spare head shell for the drone (to improve visibility if you want). Allow yourself at least 2 hours startup time when you just get the drone - you'll need to charge 3 batteries (flight battery, goggles battery and controller), thankfully DJI power adapter has 2 USB-A ports to charge it all at the same time. When everything is charged - you will neet to connect your phone to the goggles using the included USB-C OTG cable or just a regular USB-C to Lightning (Apple) in order to update all firmware and activate your drone.

    Make sure you've got a compatible micro SD card (drone needs a fast card!) and all is ready to take it outside for the 1st flight! NOTE: while it's possible to fly it inside - I would not advise doing it. You will need a large enough room and the air flow is so strong that it will most likely blow stuff all over your floor. Anything paper in the room is pretty much guaranteed to fly around... take it outside instead!

    Drone has 3 flight modes that can be selected pretty much at any phase of flight. Normal mode - made for a cinematic flyovers, top forward speed is limited to 15 m/s (~33 mph) and obstacle avoidance system (forward and downward) is active. Sport mode - this turns obstacle avoidance off and boosts you forward speed to 27 m/s (~60mph) for dynamic flying, sports mode also enables 'cruise control' - sort of an auto-throttle system that would keep your forward speed constant.

    And of course a full manual mode with a crazy 87 mph top speed! Manual mode is almost equivalent to the self-built hobby FPV drone, it has to be enabled in the controls section, then you need to turn the controller over, pop up the cover and adjust 2 screw tension to remove auto-center of the left stick to give you a complete control over aircraft throttle. It's also advisable to practice flying the drone in manual mode using DJI Virtual Flight app in advance. When you feel good in the Manual mode - there is a way to kick things up a notch - you can go into controller settings and disable aircraft's attitude control which will allow you do a full 360 rolls with it, and in any time you feel uncomfortable or in trouble - you always have a life saving pause button on the controller - drone will automatically stabilize, hover, and go into the Normal mode with just a single button click. There is an ability to fine tune your controller's stick center sensitivity, max rate and expo.

    Any mode also has automatic Return To Home ability by long pressing the pause button. Return to Home altitude can be customized in settings and should be set above highest obstacle in the area as your dron will default to return to home in case of a low battery or loss of communications.

    Camera footage that this drone captures is pretty spectacular - 1/2.3" CMOS 12MP 4K/60 fps sensor with ISO range from 100 to 12800 guarantees you a crystal clear footage with wide dynamic balance and high low light sensitivity! Camera feed looks just amazing in the goggles - it's a complete immersion into reality from up above, like you are actually seeing the world from the drone's perspective! DJI's OcuSync 3.0 communication system works flawlessly - there are no hiccups, artefacts or delays - you see everything exactly as the drone sees it with almost no delay, I was able to fly about 4000' away in the suburbs before I've noticed any signal drop-outs, pretty sure it will be way better out of the city.

    Camera is mounted on the singe axis gimbal that allows for aircraft pitch correction but it does not remove any bank or yaw from the footage. D-Cinelike and Normal color modes are supported to allow for a post color correction.

    Goggles are pretty lightweight and comfortable (way lighter than let's say Oculus Quest), I'm not really a fan of the external battery. I understand that external battery enables longer use time (by swapping the battery out) but it's not very comfortable to deal with the wire all the time. Inter-pupillary distance is adjustable so anyone can fly, I was able to keep my prescription glasses while wearing DJI goggles as well. Both eyes screens have 1440x810 resolution.

    Safety - what I did appreciate a lot is that drone has ADS-B receiver built in so if it senses a real aircraft nearby - you will get a warning in the goggles. If you ever crash your drone (btw - DJI has an extended care plan just in case you want extra insurance) - you can view the last 30 seconds of what drone seen in the goggles (or even the whole flight if you installed an SD card into goggles as well).

    What is missing in my opinion is auto tracking functions just like in any other DJI GPS stabilized drone. FPV drone won't do any tricks like circle around an object, spiral, rocket and other effects - you'll need to fly those yourself. There is also no way to mount the phone on the controller, this is not a big deal for FPV flights, but just in case you wanted to take a break or flying alone (no Visual Observer) - you'll need to be creative on where to put the phone at. Phone shows drone camera feed, but no menu or warnings.

    What I think overall - if your desire is just aerial photography - get one of GPS stabilized drones with 3 axis gimbal. This drone if mostly for the fast dynamic flying and immersive flight scenes at high speeds and bank angles. Absolutely get it if you enjoy adrenaline rush!

    I would also recommend getting DJI FPV fly more kit that includes 2 extra flight batteries and a sequential charging adapter - which would allow you to just connect all 3 batteries. Another fun accessory to get is the DJI motion controller which I don't have just yet.

    FPV Made Simple

    This DJI FPV drone is my first experience with FPV but I have owned a DJI Mavic Mini for over a year now so I am fairly familiar with their smaller drones. With that said I am still very much a beginner when it comes to drones. FPV is just so immersive and a different experience when flying compared to regular drones but overall it is very fun.

    Setup:

    Out of the box it does take some time to get everything setup and charged up. The drone comes almost ready to go minus the propellers which are tool free install. Just push and twist them on. The headset needs all the antennas installed, strap installed, and the batteries charged. Once this is complete the drone battery needs charged. Finally, the joysticks on the controller need screwed into place and everything is ready to go. The disappointing part was that this setup does not come with any sort of carrying case. Considering the Mavic Mini combo came with one, I am a little disappointed there.

    Design (Drone and Goggles):

    The design of this drone is fairly unique. Being FPV, it needs to sit a little differently in the air with the camera at the forefront so it may look different compared to most other drones on the market. The structure feels very rugged and not so delicate which means this drone can likely take a good hit or two without any problems of something breaking aside from the propellers which you get two sets of.

    The goggles look very crazy when they are assembled on your face but the overall fit and finish is good. The comfort is satisfactory but not super plush. One great feature is the fact the goggles can save video in addition to the drone via Micro SD card. The goggles operate at 810p so video quality inside them is higher than standard “HD” so it allows you to see where the drone is going in great detail compared to just about anything else on the market.

    Controls:

    Just like other DJI drones the FPV has several flight modes. These changes the overall performance of the drone and how it reacts. Simple definitions below.

    (N Mode): Same flight mode used on other DJI drones. Suitable for users with little or no experience flying drones.

    (S Mode): Simplifies FPV flying for a thrilling and intuitive experience. It’s a hybrid setting that mixes normal and manual mode. Suitable for users with some experience flying drones.

    (M Mode): The full FPV flight control mode. Fun and challenging mode that is suitable only for users with experience flying FPV who know what they are doing. Suitable for flying in open areas.

    I think Sport mode is a good middle ground for most users given the speeds it allows to travel (60mph or so) and the maneuvers you can get in this mode. Obviously anyone with lots of drone experience will use manual mode to achieve the movements they would like. One important note is that battery life will decrease with each mode as the high speeds and quicker movements draw more power from the battery.

    The drone has a brake button which will stop the drone as quickly as possible. This is great if you get into a sticky situation and need to stop it where it is. Of course Return to Home (RTH) is present but this is a smarter version that works to calculate the distance at which you are and how much battery life is left.

    Video:

    The video specs of this drone are quite good. 150 degree FOV 4k camera at 60 fps with motion stabilization. This is a content creators dream setup pairing FPV with a high quality camera and stabilized video. Everything I shot was super smooth and looked great!

    DJI’s OcuSync 3.0 worked like a charm in giving super clear, real time video transmission at any reasonable distance. Again this transmission is roughly 810p at up to 120fps.

    App:

    I have never really had any issues with the DJI Fly app for Android. It provides the drone with firmware updates and also how to use the drones. You can also use the app to edit your videos on the go which is handy for quick edits. There is also a link where are you can get more accustomed to your drone. These are helpful to get used to the more advanced features on the drones.

    ALWAYS make sure the drone is up to date before going to fly. These updates can use a large part of the battery to do so unless you have a backup battery ready to go, you may miss out on a flight.

    Verdict:

    I am thrilled to have experienced FPV for the first time using this drone. Cruising around at relatively high speeds never felt so cool. It allows you to explore areas you may have never seen before (Within legal limits of course). DJI opened the world up to drones with the Spark and Mavic Mini so I believe this is just another chapter in the book of opening up users to FPV. It will get more people who have shied away from FPV because of the complexity to try it here with the DJI products.

    Cinematic FPV drone good-ness

    >> Bottom Line Up front: <<

    ======================

    The DJI FPV Combo drone offers you a feature packed, easy to use, and immensely enjoyable option in the “First Person View” segment. The FPV Combo’s Wireless Controller and Google User Interface works really well together and provide a really immersive flying experience that you just can’t get using a traditional drone without them. Factor in DJI’s rock solid software and support, excellent video tutorials on their web site, and the immersive 3rd party/aftermarket support – and its clear the FPV Drone is tough beat. Keep in mind, that even though the FPV drone has several safety features such as obstacle sensing and “emergency brake & hover” (at the touch of button) baked into the “Normal” mode – some though and consideration should be taken prior to throwing it “Sport” or “Manual” mode, especially if you are newer to flying or have never used a FPV style drone before.

    >> Packaging/Unboxing: <<

    ======================

    From the moment you start peeling off the protective plastic tabs on outer packing, its clear that DJI did an excellent job packing the whole drone system up for you unboxing enjoyment. The first thing you notice when you pull the top open, is a nice presentation of the Drone and the FPV goggles sitting securely packed into the foam cushioning layer inside. Under that, once you pull the foam padding up and out of the box, you a good clean look at the wireless controller surrounded by all the smaller boxes that contain your power supply packs, USB, and connection cables, goggle straps, etc, etc… – pretty much everything you’re going to need to get up and going. It nice to see DJI provided you with a couple extra plastic propellers AND a solid color plastic canopy for the main unit housing in there just in case you need a spare down the line. All in all, it looks like DJI really put some though into how the unboxing experience would be when you got it home.

    The actual components, such as the FPV drone and the wireless controller – feel super solid and have nice weight to them. This is something that is tough to gauge on just words or picture alone. Needless to say, just based off of the time I spent handling it and setting it up this past week – it feels like the FPV drone is going to last as long as you’re going to try to take normal care of it (i.e. not abuse it/physically torture it on purpose). Once

    >> Personal Observations flying around for a week: <<

    ==========================================

    Chances are if your ready this, your probably at least a little familiar with the basics of drone flight controls and operations. If you’re not that OK too, because if you weren’t already aware, DJI has a plethora of resources available to you online. Everything from basic tutorial videos, product FAQs, and product support is just a few clicks away and very well though out/easy to access. Prior to taking this DJI FPV drone for a spin, I had been using a different less known/off brand “standard” (read NON-FVP) drone to help me with aerial photographical trail route presentations for my fitness groups. Basically, I rely on the footage to capture route terrain overlay, variations in vegetation, and topographical overlay… but mainly – as a content creation tool to help me create a presentation to submit for approval of proposed hiking route/activity. I know my personal use case for the FPV drone may be very unique – but I could have asked for a better product in any regard for I need a drone to do. For starters, although I have a couple of years of drone flight experience under my belt, I have never really had the opportunity to fly something that as agile, sensor laden, and fast as this DJI FPV drone. I feel this is in large part due the 3 different flight modes that the DJI FPV offers for control: “S” / Sport Mode, “N” / Normal Mode, and “M” / Manual mode. Between these 3 modes, I think almost everyone is going to find the appropriate level of control they feel comfortable to get the most of their flight experience with the DJI FPV drone. I could literally write volumes about all the nuances available within each mode, but I came away with a couple of big take always. First, you can’t just put it into “Manual” mode – which is where you can pretty much have free reign over all of the built-in flight control and hit the top rated speed of approx. 87mph….which is probably a good thing as it seems like the sheer amount of speed and agility you would have access to in this mode can be overwhelming for the un-initiated. To get there though- you’ll have to actually go into the menu system in the goggles themselves to enable it, and confirm it again on the wireless controller. “M” is seemed to be the only mode where I could pull off a couple of loops and minor acrobatics. With all that being, I found the normal mode to be the best place to start right out the box so that I could figure out all the nuances to the controls and how the menu systems accessed the features available to the drone. For what I need the DJI FPV drone to help me with regarding helping me to make cinematic trail routes and presentations – “S” or Sport Mode, is it. In “S” mode, you get to experience a lot of the additional “freedoms” and advanced features afforded to “M” mode, like increased speeds and lean angles – but not so much that you’re going to lose control if you’re not on your “A” game on the controls. I couldn’t get the DJI FPV drone to go faster tan about 63 MPH in S mode, and the added agility really helped to create more interesting and dynamic “First Person Views” of trail routes and locations that was missing from my older off branded standard drone.

    Controlling the DJI FPV was a straight forward affair. Nice little details like textured metal accent flight sticks coupled with logically laid out and sized buttons made this super easy to just pick up and fly in you’re a previous seasoned pilot. As the name implies – the FPV is pretty much depended on the googles to fly and access all the features. If you have yet to experience an FPV drone, you’re in for a treat. There are so many ways to describe it, but to me it, the FPV drone really captures a dynamic sense of movement that is simply not possible on a standard style drone. I say that as someone who regularly jumps out of planes with a “go pro” strapped on. In my opinion, the DJI FPV is right up there and in some way even better as you can actually control both vertical and lateral movement simultaneously. The FPV relies on DJI’s O3 (OcuSync 3.0) to beam all those imaged straight into your headset for your viewing pleasure. The entire I have been using the goggles I have had nothing but crystal-clear images the entire time. There are more than a few options to dig through when you’re setting up your controls to pick out the resolutions and transmission details to ensure your capturing everything the way you want it. The DJI FPV drone is capable of providing breathtaking images and videos thanks to its 150° field of view and DJI familiar suite of technologies that have been used in some of their other drone product lines. I think one of the key reasons for such a smooth playback experience is likely due to the FPV’s electronic image stabilization, or “RockSteady” as DJI calls it. Worth mentioning again, if you get mildly motion sick, or gets uneasy with the high speed/sense of maneuvers – even with the added electronic image stabilization - you’ll definitely want to take note.

    On the subject of controls, safety goes a long way in many of the things the FPV drone does. One of the things I really, really … really liked about the FPV’s controls was the “Emergency Brake and Hover” button. It is super easy to activate on the upper shoulder of the controller, and afforded me a comfort knowing if I got into any kind of bad situation or maneuver – I could at least tap that button, and within seconds, put it into a hover before I cratered it. On a side note, I noticed anytime you did actually use the emergency brake and hover button, it kicks you back into “Normal” mode – which is think is a good thing because chances are if you hitting that point where you feel you loosing your control on the drone – its best to let the FPV sensor suite kick in and assist you. Speaking of the FPV’s sensors. They do a decent job of helping the drone with basic obstacle avoidance and even provides you color coded feedback in your goggles so that you can better gauge your distance from anything that could bring it down or cause damage. There is even an auxiliary bottom light for when you need that extra bit of visibility. The DJI FPV drone offers some other nice touches such as “Smart” Return to Home (RTH) and low battery RTH. I found the latter to be particularly useful to me, because it throws up a notification in your FPV goggle’s field of view, and helped to keep me in check when I was getting lost in the fun for too long. Regardless, if you use the RTH feature or not – take offs and landing are super smooth

    >> Closing thoughts: <<

    ===================

    The DJI FPV drone provided me an incredible experience like nothing I had previously used before. The standard drones just seem so tame in retrospect. The DJI FPV drone combo system knocks it out of the park for what I use it for, and then some. I think it actually made flying more fun and immersive. Thanks to the amount of safety features and sensor options DJI built into the FPV, it really can be used by pilots of all skill levels. I would recommend the FPV Combo drone even if you already have a standard, as it provides you a perspective you simply can find anywhere else.

    Must have if you buy the FPV drone. Gives you a charging block and two more batteries. Only bad thing is that it will not charge all 3 at the same time. Only charges one at a time. If you plug three in at the same time it will find the one with the most charge and charge it fully to get you flying faster.

    Best battery for the Tello

    This is the manufacturer battery for the Tello drone. Easily charges in the drone or in the manufacturer battery charging station. The battery provides approximately 5 -8 minutes of flight time on a single charge. Fits in most carrying bags with the Tello.

    I have several Ryze Tech batteries. The batteries do charge slower over time so I recommend purchasing multiple batteries at once or over time.

    Quick and easy to purchase at Best Buy. For delivery it is small enough to fit in most mailboxes or easy item to purchase for curbside / in store pickup.

    Great accessory for the FPV drone

    A very unique and exciting alternative for piloting the DJI FPV drone. Adds a completely different experience as compared to the "regular" controller. There is a bit of a learning curve as expected but it adds to the fun of FPV droning...It has a few safety features that can help if you get into trouble with it. Nice build quality and feel.

    MUST HAVE ACCESSORY

    This is a MUST HAVE if you are flying the DJI FPV drone. Incredibly intuitive. I am even comfortable to give it to my intoxicated friends because of how simple this makes flying.

  • Review by EliteGamer, 10 out of 10
    Very responsive maneuverable

    This is the best wait to fly the drone. Once you experience it you no longer want to use any other remote controller. It's very responsive and allows you to maneuver faster around obstacles. Until I am comfortable flying in Acro (manual) mode, I will only use the motion controller to fly the DJI FPV. Please note this motion controller doesn't have Acro (manual) mode so if looking to fly Across you would need the standard remote controller.

    Loving it

    Takes the flying experience of DJI to a whole new level! One of the main reasons I purchased the FPV drone was for this capability to use with the motion controller. I wish they were included with the FPV drone, it changes everything. Very happy with my purchase.

    Dji Motion Controller

    This is a great addition to your DJI fpv drone set up. It makes flying a more immersive experience and introduces any beginner to the sport with ease. It's easy to pick up the controls and enjoy flying with intuitive maneuvers and speed thats manageable and even challenges the advance pilots. Although I think it's too price is a bit much for what it is.

    Excellent

    Pleasantly surprised. I like big sound. It does not provide the big bass outdoors, but it fills the room adequately inside. I have the Boombox that fills the need for the outdoors. The sound quality of the Charge 4 is really clear with good mids and highs. It is actually a little too loud at night on the lowest volume setting when trying to go to sleep — NOT a problem at all because I just use the iPhone speakers. I have 2 old Xtremes. I was considering getting an Xtreme 2 to complete my connect + pairings, but I will get another Charge 4 instead (though I don’t really need it). Now the old Xtremes serve me little purpose - that absolute SUCK JBL.

    Ignore the first, third, and fourth photos. They have nothing to do with what comes with this kit. It comes with prop guards with landing gear, a lens hood, and a plastic bit that holds the blades for transit. All you could need for your spark! Well made, and a great value.

    If you are looking to use this product with the new DJI Mini 2 you will need to look for a usb-c magnetic charging adapter. You can order it directly from the product makers. I love the lighting feature that creates a cool atmosphere in the room for any drone lover.

    Sits on my desk when I'm not traveling with my mavic mini. I dont normally charge my batteries with it, since the smart hub is much more effective, but I do like how it displays the drone. Hope to see more things like this with future models. Oh, and lower your price on everything, dji isn't a household name as the price dictates it is. I could build as-good, if not better drones with my degree in aeronautical engineering. Just saying, meh.

    DJI Charging Display Base for DJI Mini Series

    The DJI Charging Display Base for DJI Mini Series Drones is a pretty fantastic charging station for my DJI Mini 2. It provides a visually appealing view of your drone while it is charging and also serves as a useful nightlight. What's impressive is the tiny dongle that connects to the drone's USB-C charging port and turns into a wireless charging option on the base of the display. Is this necessary? Absolutely not, but it complements the drone well. The only improvement I would suggest to DJI is to make the DJI logo on the base glow just like the ring. That would have made this display perfect.

    This is a neat way to charge/show off your mini drone. I like that it lights up, but I'm knocking a star off for lack of RGB. However, I do like that the light stays on regardless of whether or not the drone is connected. That means you can use it for something else for when you inevitably crash the drone....
