We tested the DJI Mavic Air ourselves in high winds and freezing conditions last week and came away impressed. The Mavic Air flew without any problems, even though it was being pushed around by the wind quite a bit. The video footage turned out to be very stable due to the improved gimbal on the Mavic Air. In this video, posted on YouTube today, similar results are shown and it seems that that the Mavic Air handles high winds just as well as the trusted Mavic Pro. Have a look.

Dan Nainan and I made this short film to show off the first customer-owned Tesla Model 3 on the East Coast and the new DJI Mavic Air.

In cold and somewhat damp weather we tried to achieve the maximum flight distance advertised by DJI. They claim that the DJI Mavic Air should be able to achieve a maximum flight distance (or range) of 2.4 miles. In our real-life test, we did not get further than 1.24 miles. At around 5,500 feet we started losing the Wi-Fi connection. The connection got worse and at 6,500 feet, I decided to turn around.
