When we talk about drones, DJI is one name we can’t miss. The brand is famous not just for its lineup of drones but other aerial photography systems as well. Recently DJI updated its portfolio of drones with the new DJI Mavic Air 2 and its finally available for purchase in Nepal.
DJI Mavic Air 2 Overview
DJI sells drones and components to almost anyone, including consumers, professionals, and enterprises. However, the Mavic series is all about consumer electronics. The Mavic series of drones are the ones that you will likely stumble upon if you go out in the Nepalese market looking for a drone. The original Mavic Air provides tons of features to people looking for an ultraportable drone that they can take anywhere with them.
DJI Mavic Air 2 is the successor to the original Mavic Air that was launched back in 2018. Though it retains the overall characteristics of the Mavic lineup, DJI has designed and developed the new Mavic Air 2 from the ground up. It isn’t just an upgrade to the Mavic Air, as the company is advertising it as the smartest and safest consumer drone of all time. Compared to its predecessor, it comes with upgrades in terms of camera performance, flight duration, transmission system, and the Fly app.
Though it retains the all-familiar folding design as the Mavic Air, the Mavic Air 2 is both bigger and heavier. It has a dimension of 183 x 253 x 77mm, which reduces to 180 x 97 x 84mm when folded. Design-wise, it shares a lot of elements with the more premium Mavic Pro.
DJI has also re-designed the controller this time around. The phone mount has been shifted from the bottom to the top of the controller. And in doing so, the company has got rid of the visible antennas.
DJI Mavic Air 2 comes with a Quad Bayer 1/2-inch sensor. Users can choose to shoot in either of 12MP or 48MP camera mode. The lens has a FOV of 84-degree and an aperture of f/2.8. It is the first in its series to offer 4K video recording at 60fps and 180fps. The drone supports HDR for photos, videos, and panorama. For stability, it has a 3-axis gimbal (mechanical). It is also capable of taking 8K Hyperlapse shots.

Though it is heavier than its predecessor, the Mavic Air 2 offers longer flight duration, largely due to the 3500mAh battery. DJI claims a maximum flight duration of about 34 minutes. Mavic Air 2 also features new motors and new Electronic Speed Controllers. The drone uses OcuSync 2.0 technology that can transmit videos from a distance of up to 10km.
The drone features obstacle sensors on both front and back to give signals about nearby objects. Users can even set the sensors in a way that they will prevent the drone from moving close to avoid any accident. The Advanced Pilot Assistance System 3.0 can even create a path over, under, or around the object to avoid the collision. The drone also features ADS-B technology that can warn users about nearby aircraft along with their location.
DJI Mavic Air 2 comes with Focus Track, which consists of three different intelligent features. The Spotlight 2.0 locks the camera on the subject so that no matter the way you fly the drone, the chosen subject will always focus. ActiveTrack 3.0 keeps the subject in the center of the frame while also avoiding any kind of obstacle. POI 3.0 is an upgrade to POQ2.0 that helps keep better track of the subject dynamically.
