It has been a long time since DJI surprised us with the presentation of an accessible as well as powerful drone, a model with a lot of technology and software that was the company's commitment to reach a much larger customer market. Now, after all this time, we have to talk about the DJI Mavic Air, the evolution of this peculiar drone that now becomes lighter and easier to carry from one place to another.
The idea behind the DJI Mavic Air is to be able to offer a drone where designers and engineers have opted for a much smaller size which, on the other hand, has managed to further reduce its weight, this time approving some more than interesting 430 grams. Despite reducing its dimensions, there are certain characteristics, such as its power, that have been improved.

Perhaps the great limitation of the DJI Mavic Air is once again its limited autonomy of 21 minutes
As for the most interesting technical characteristics, we find that the DJI Mavic Air has a stabilized three-axis mechanical stabilizer with which the engineers of the Chinese company have managed to reduce vibrations and thus be able to offer much sharper photographs. Note that this new version has a 21 minute flight autonomy being able to reach up to 5.000 meters above sea level.
If we go into the software world, attending to the press release released by DJI itself, we find that this drone equip better flight algorithms that make it safer thanks to the fact that it can avoid obstacles being smoother. To achieve this, it uses seven flight cameras and infrared sensors that, in turn, allow it to fly completely autonomously following a target.
The DJI Mavic Air has been equipped with a much more capable and powerful camera
If what interests us is a drone like this for its camera, tell you that it now has a 1 / 2.3 ″ CMOS sensor with f / 2.8 aperture and 12 megapixels, which in addition to photographs will allow you to record videos in 4K at 30 frames per second. A very important detail and expected by all is that, at last, the DJI Mavic Air has a card slot microSD and a port USB-C to extract all the data.
Finally, just comment that the Mavic Air can already be reserved on the official DJI website, being available at a price that starts from the 849 euros.
