What Is So Special About Mavic Air 2?

The Mavic Air 2 is the successor to the original Mavic Air, the foldable quadcopter, with new features that makes it very attractive to buyers and should more than satisfy drone pilots.

One of its exciting features that is novel for a consumer drone is AirSense, which enables Mavic Air 2 to detect nearby aircraft such as planes and helicopters, thus warning the drone pilots so they can respond appropriately (that is, take evasive action).

AirSense uses aviation technology that has been used for considerable time, which is known as ADS-B. This technology not only receives signals from aircraft in the vicinity, but even shows their location on the drone pilot’s control screen. This means that if the aircraft were to fly toward a drone, AirSense will immediately warn the drone pilot with messages, sounds, and vibrations through the remote controller. This is a very effective proactive measure that gives the drone pilot sufficient time to land the quadcopter safely. Although it is unlikely that this particular feature will be used often, it should nevertheless give peace of mind to the pilot when flying.

The Mavic Air 2 is an upgrade over its previous model in many ways since it has more technology, stays in the air longer, and can capture footage that rivals the more expensive models. The sensor is maximized, like the option to take 48-megapixel photos due to the

Quad Bayer color filter array. This adds the option of high-resolution shots with a lot of detail or lower-resolution images with better dynamic range.

It features SmartPhoto, which integrates scene recognition, HyperLight, and HDR into one mode for optimal results. Scene recognition optimizes different camera parameters for various scenes and supports recognition of five categories: sunset, skies, grass, snow, and trees.

The Mavic Air 2 has other improved features like its camera capabilities. It has a bigger 1/2-inch sensor capable of shooting 4K 60fps video and 12- and 48-megapixel images due to the Quad Bayer color filter array and an example of this would be its ability to take 48-megapixel photos. It is the same technology found in many of the recent Android smartphones. What it means to the drone photographer is that he has the option of high-resolution shots with a lot of detail or lower-resolution images with better dynamic range.

Video capabilities have improved with the Mavic Air 2, which comes with significant upgrades over its predecessor. It can film 4K 60fps with a 120 Mbps bitrate, which is even better than the flagship Mavic 2 Pro. It can record slow-motion footage up to 240fps at 1080p resolution, and film is available in three color modes: standard, Cinelike, and HDR.

Last year, DJI promised to incorporate the AirSense system into all of its new consumer drones weighing more than 250 grams, and the Mavic Air 2 is the company’s first release. This technology is already part of its pro lineup that includes the Matrice 200 series and the Mavic 2 Enterprise.

What is so special about Mavic Air 2? Mavic Air 2 is an intermediate drone that is inexpensive, easy to fly, stays longer in the air, captures compelling photos and video, but most of all, it is safer than before because now it can detect nearby aircraft.
