We’ve been talking about it for 2 weeks but today is the day we finally do my review of the brand new DJI Mavic Air. I think this is a fantastic drone but it is …

  1. I hope you can help me make my final decision on drones. I purchased 2 drones and each of them flew away with the wind in the trees somewhere. I noticed how small this Mavic Air is, how does it do against the wind? Especially the higher and furthest you fly it. What's the furthest distance you can fly it without losing range? I hope you can help me out with these questions. Thanks

  2. I know you might not like the fly more combo charger because it only charges one battery at a time, but heres the thing: theres a micro processor in the charger base that determines which of the docked batteries has the highest amount of charge, and charges that one to full first, then goes to the next highest, and so forth. This basically gets you back up in the air faster than having a charger that slow charges all batteries simutaneously. Something you may also not know, theres a rubber plug on the charging dock. Pull it out and theres a micro USB behind it. You can update the firmware for the battery through that USB plug.

  3. OK Dad, keep the Air-A-paloosa going… We bought Airs and are tiptoeing through the pages… So , short of coming to the central coast of Ca. And flying with us, get us off the ground and into the wonders of nature through your videos…..

  4. I want to get the spark becouse I dont have €1500 for the mavic but What drone should I buy should I go look for a job and get the mavic pro or should I go for the spark

  5. I had the platinum pro – loved the quietness, but it was a bit big to transport to some cool places.. loved how far it would fly tho. figured the Air would be a good drone, and when and if they come out with a Pro II, it will be in a market that is a little different so that having both the Air and the PRO II would be more complimentary and less confusing marginal lines between the two as it seems now.

  6. The fact that the OTG cable is "built in" to the Mavic Air means that DJI won't take away that feature like they did with the Spark. When they updated the App/FW to remove OTG cable use with the Spark, I rolled my Spark back to a version which still supports it. (DJI Go 4 version 4.1.15). If you read the "Official DJI Spark FB" page/channel, it seems that every day someone is complaining that they are now getting disconnects (between RC/viewing device) and/or fly aways after disconnection (with the Spark). I'm so "miffed" at DJI for pulling that crap with the Spark that I have an inkling to try and sell it off on eBay. Yeah, the so called "Mavic Air" doesn't have Occusync or Lightbridge 2, but it does have 'hard wired' OTG and a more powerful RC (in FCC mode), so the aggravating disconnects and choppy/pixelated FPV video should not be a problem. I can't tell you how many shoots I did NOT do, because I don't have confidence in the Spark. I trust my P3A 100%, but perhaps 5% trust in the Spark (at best). YMMV
