Just six weeks after unveiling its race-grade 87mph “FPV” drone, Da-Jiang Innovations has now revealed its next quadcopter cam with the new and improved Air 2S drone model.

Ditching the “Mavic” portion of its moniker, the new Air 2S now features a cutting-edge camera with a bigger, 1” sensor that allows for 20MP still photos and 5.4K videos at 30fps (or 4K at 60FPS at up to 150Mbps). Weighing just 595-grams (or 1.311lbs), the Air 2S offers a 7.5-mile range, a trio of color profiles, double the digital zoom of its predecessor, and 31 minutes of flight time. The Air 2S also gets even more advanced flight modes, such as Spotlight 2.0, Point of Interest 3.0, ActiveTrack 4.0, and the all-new MasterShot feature. The drone’s four obstacle avoidance sensors have been updated — including the addition of two new front-facing units — which allows for what DJI has dubbed “binocular zooming.” Available now, the DJI Air 2S starts at $999, though the company is also offering a “Fly More” bundle that comes with a charging dock, ND filters, a shoulder bag, and a trio of batteries affording a collective 1.5 hours of flight time.
