A rather nervous DJI Director of North America opened a launch event in New York, to showcase the brand new Mavic Air drone,. This new model is set to replace the DJI Spark and to closely compete with the Mavic Pro drone.
As a bridge between the existing DJI Spark drone and the current Mavic Pro drone, the Mavic Air is not just a bridge but an evolution of the two, providing portability, power, incredible flight autonomy.
We have struggled to take our own Mavic Pro with us on holidays and trips because despite being small, it is not small enough to pack without it impacting your luggage. The DJI Spark has always been limited in functionality due to the 1080p resolution and non-folding arms, therefore the Mavic Air could potentially be the ultimate drone released to the market at this time.
