DJI’s Mavic Air 2 Drone Boasts 4K 60FPS Video & A Longer Flight Time

Category: Tech

DJI’s Mavic series includes some of the most popular models in the drone market’s amateur segment, thanks to their decently-specced hardware, intuitive interfacing and controls, and competitive pricing. And the Shenzhen-based company has now added another member to that lineup with the reveal of the new Mavic Air 2.

This new iteration is reportedly the first DJI drone to offer 4K video at 60FPS and 120Mbps. Capable of transmitting video over a distance exceeding 6-miles, the Air 2 flies at a top speed of 42mph. It also features a bigger imaging sensor on its camera for superior resolution, and several smart camera modes including a low-light setting, an HDR mode, and an AI-powered “Smart Photo” mode that analyzes the drone’s landscape and surroundings and runs the data through an algorithm to afford the user a multitude of auto-assisted recording options. And, despite being a tad heavier than its predecessor, the Mavic Air 2 sports a revised rotor design and numerous aerodynamic tweaks that enable it to offer a nearly 50% better flight time, capable of remaining in the air for a full 34 minutes (or 11 miles). Scheduled to ship in late May of 2020, the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone has been priced at $799.
