DJI Mavic Air Drone - Onyx Black A marvel of engineering and design, the Mavic Air was built to go wherever adventure takes you. Inheriting the best of the Mavic series, this ultraportable and foldable drone features high-end flight performance and functionality for limitless exploration. Flight Performance, the thrill of flight with 21-minute max flight time.
This device was a complete disappointment. I made the mistake of purchasing the Mavic Pro about 2 years ago and had terrible connection issues, and found it was something to do with Pixel phones. I assumed, since Pixel phones have been out for years now, Mavic would have improved connection issues, considering I do not have connection issues with any other devices. Unfortunately, I was wrong. I got this for my birthday, and have spent each time calibrating over and over (the compass keeps failing and saying it needs recalibration and that fails almost every time, other then when you finally get lucky after doing it over and over several times). On top of that, the app crashes repeatedly, and loses connection to the drone. I did some research, and found this is a common issue with the Mavic Air, even for people who don't have my phone. I regret the purchase, and am irritated for the fact that I wasted time, money, and a good portion of my birthday weekend doing nothing but charge and recalibrate an $800 device.
It's amazing the technology packed into this unit. I am an RC hobbyist and a computer programmer so I had no problem mastering this quadcopter in a day. I have a friend who also bought one. He is technically challenged, but he figured it out without my help. Warning, this is a gateway drone, meaning once you get going with this one, you are going to want the Mavic Pro 2 with more range and flying time at about 3 times the price, but I am now considering it after the fun I am having with the MA. I filmed my son playing catch with the dog, and got a great shot from above and then moving in closer following "Ham" running for the ball. Plus some high altitude shots for panoramas of the skyline. Portable for travel it can be use to add another dimension to recording travel. I registered my drone and I suggest you do to. Responsible ownership means knowing the rules, flying safely, and if something goes wrong, you are responsible for damage. Registering is the public acknowledgement of your intentions and would be of benefit in a dispute over the rogue pilot.
The DJI Mavic Air is well built camera drone; with powerful brushless motors, able to handle windy days with ease. It is similar to the DJI Spark but twice the cost. When it went on sale for 250.00 off the standard price....I could not pass it up and pulled the trigger. My local Target store had it available the next day for pick up. Awesome purchase!!
This pocket drone is awesome. Great for traveling and adventure videos. I initially wanted to buy this drone when it first debuted but was talked out by my photographer friend who has some heavy duty Phantoms. But when Target had this special, it was a no-brained. Flys great with some great auto features.
