DJI Mavic Air Overview


DJI built the Mavic Air with the pedigree of the Mavic series, providing pilots the flight performance and limitless exploration of a top-class drone. It’s the most portable DJI drone with a 3-axis mechanical gimbal producing steadier shots. As tall and wide as a smartphone when folded, its ultraportable frame lets you take it with you anywhere—ready to fly when you are.

Capture stunning ultra HD video in 4K 30fps at 100 Mbps. Don’t just settle for horizontal, vertical and 180-degree panoramas, let the Mavic Air stitch together multiple photos in mere seconds to create 32MP Sphere panoramas. HDR algorithms intelligently adjust exposure settings so that highlights and shadows look natural. With smart flight modes and tracking, plus 8GB of internal storage, the Mavic Air is your eye in the sky.


The Mavic Air’s portability doesn’t stop this drone from being able to capture breathtaking images. The 3-axis mechanical gimbal has a reduced angular vibration range, and with gimbal dampeners set in a triangular formation, steadier shots are easier to manage.

Magnesium alloy brackets reinforce the 7 onboard cameras, with the primary gimbal camera protected from collisions or friction. The Mavic Air’s arms fold in flush against the drone’s chassis to improve portability when you’re not flying.

SmartCapture offers an interactive way to control the Mavic Air through hand gestures and take photos or video without touching the controller. FlightAutonomy 2.0 uses the onboard system of sensors to assess the surrounding environment to bypass obstacles and improve flight performance for smoother footage.


The Mavic Air can see plenty from the air, but it can take standard panoramas to another level. It can stitch together 25 photos in only 8 seconds to create massive 32MP Sphere panoramas. View them from an immersive perspective when wearing DJI Goggles.

Capture panoramas in horizontal, vertical or 180-degree orientations, covering any visual approach you want to take. This means you can get the full scene in front, behind and all around you without having to create an elaborate setup with multiple cameras to do it.

Get creative with QuickShots, for epic selfie videos that can pan around you in a variety of ways that will make you look like a talented filmmaker. Use TapFly to hover and shoot anywhere you tap on your mobile device screen, adjusting speed to your needs.


With 8GB of internal storage, you have space to save your memories without having to worry about limits. When you need more, slide in a microSD card to expand storage and save your footage and still images there instead.

The Mavic Air will tell you whether your card is fast enough for 4K video recording or not. With the ability to write data at a max speed of 12.5MB, using a faster card will ensure you can shoot everything you want without technical restrictions.

Fly for up to 21 minutes, using the foldable remote controller holding your smartphone to pilot the Mavic Air at your leisure. Switch between flight modes and even transfer over footage or images to your phone for easy sharing on social media.
