Geometric Elegance

Expressing geometric precision, the Mavic Air's arms fold flush against its aerodynamic chassis. Magnesium alloy brackets reinforce the seven onboard cameras, and the primary gimbal camera is recessed for better protection while the rear vents dissipate heat efficiently.

 

3D Foldable Design

As tall and wide as a smartphone when folded, the Mavic Air is an ultra-portable drone that stretches the boundaries of what's possible for a device its size.
Foldable Remote Controller The dedicated remote controller uses a foldable, low-profile, ergonomic design to hold your smartphone for maximum convenience. Detachable control sticks store inside the remote controller to pack more comfortably on the go.

 

ActiveTrack

ActiveTrack can sense up to 16 selectable subjects2 simultaneously, letting you choose the right tracking subject on the go. With higher tracking precision and broader scenario applications, ActiveTrack can follow targets even when they're running, jumping, or cycling.

 

QuickShots

Choose from six different QuickShots — Rocket, Dronie, Circle, Helix, Asteroid, and Boomerang. All are just a tap away and will get you those epic selfie drone videos without needing to think about composing your shot. Share your new creations to social media through the DJI GO 4 app instantly.

 

SmartCapture

Fun, simple, and intuitive, SmartCapture offers a new and interactive way of controlling the Mavic Air by hand. Launch and control the drone with hand gestures, then take photos or videos however you like.

 

TapFly

If you want to focus on just your shot, select TapFly in DJI GO 4, which lets you fly wherever you tap on your mobile device screen.
TapFly works in Forward, Backward, Free, and Coordinate modes, and you can adjust flight speed to suit all your aerial needs.

 

FlightAutonomy 2.0

Besides dual IMUs, FlightAutonomy 2.0 has more redundant modules to increase the Mavic Air’s safety level. The Vision Compass will assist the navigation system to estimate flight direction when the compass experiences interference. When only one direction of the front, bottom, or rear vision systems is functioning normally, the aircraft will still position itself successfully. There are two sets of sensor fusion algorithms based on two independent hardware platforms. When an error occurs to one set of algorithms, the aircraft will switch to the other pair seamlessly to resume normal functionality.
