Four 'DJI Mavic Air' stories

January 2018


DJI will introduce the all-new DJI Mavic Air at an event in New York City on January 23rd, at 10am. At least, that is what we are expecting based on our research. Last week we received an official invite from DJI announcing the event. The image on the invite has a mysterious slogan: “Adventure Unfolds” and shows a silhouette of a new DJI product. The unfolding adventure has been an ongoing theme for the Mavic Pro drones from the Chinese manufacturer and that makes sense. The Mavic is arguably the best travel drone you could choose. It is lightweight and easy to fold, so it fits in any bag pack or suitcase. The DJI Mavic Pro was originally launched in September 2016, which makes it almost ancient by today’s technology standards. We say it is time for an update!

Update 1/16/’18: DJI just released their teaser video this morning for the upcoming event.

Details on the new DJI Mavic Air

What can you expect from the new DJI Mavic Air? Well officially there are no details yet but based on rumors and expectations, we would guess that the new drone from DJI will offer the following:

  • Lighter
  • Faster
  • Smaller
  • More aerodynamic design
  • Longer flight time
  • Foldable arms
  • 3-axis gimbal
  • 4K video
  • Better photo/video quality through perhaps a larger sensor, better bitrate, better codec, built-in ND filter, adjustable frame rate, larger aperture.
  • To be priced between the current Mavic Pro and the Spark. We expect $600 to $900 price range.

We will update this page with any new information that comes out. We will also be at the DJI event on the 23rd to bring you all the details of DJI’s new drone.

DJI Mavic Air Stories January 12

This morning, we received DJI’s invitation to its “Adventure Unfolds” event in New York City that will take place on January 23rd.

The invitation seems to provide two clues as to what the Chinese drone manufacturer may be introducing later this month. We think it will be a new version of the Mavic Pro drone that is smaller, lighter and faster. We also believe it will be called the DJI Mavic Air. Read on and see how this adventure may unfold.

Many people were expecting Chinese drone manufacturer, DJI to showcase new drones at the CES 2018 event in Las Vegas this week. But they did not. Instead of new drones, DJI showed a redesigned Osmo Mobile 2 and an all-new Ronin-S stabilizer. Both seem to be great products, but we did feel some disappointment that no new drones were announced. Luckily, it now seems that this may change soon as we just received an invite to a DJI event in New York City on January 23rd to announce new gear.
