The DJI Air 2S is offered to get right now from DJI’s main shop as well as many other merchants.
As is usually the case with DJI drones, the Air two is available in a basic kit or Fly More Bundle. The common package consists of the drone, controller, one battery, propellers, a battery charger and all wires, and costs $999/ 899GBP/ AU $1,699.
The Fly More Bundle is excellent value at 1,169/ $1,299GBP/ AU$ 2,099, since together with getting every little thing in the basic kit, you also get two additional batteries, a three-battery charging center, a handbag and a set of 4 ND filters.

Compact, lightweight as well as mobile.
Excellent build top quality.
In regards to the fundamental style, the Air 2S is extremely similar to the DJI Mavic 2 Pro although in a much smaller as well as lighter package. The prop arms are folded up in for transport and folded out for flight, with the front arms turning out while the back arms rotate down and out. Build high quality is outstanding, and all moving parts really feel robust as well as reliable.
The Air 2S flaunts some impressive mobility credentials, weighing in at just 21oz, with a folded up size of 7.1 x 3 x 3.8 in and an unfolded dimension of 7.2 x 3 x 10in. Naturally, that added unfolded dimension is simply the prolonged prop arms and also the drone body remains the very same, so it’s still exceptionally small in both arrangements.
The controller moves away from the folding design of that used with the Mavic 2 Pro and also is instead a repaired size with a bigger battery, so battery life is generally far better. Instead than affixing phones to arms at the bottom of the controller like the Pro, this controller makes use of a telescopic hold at the top to sustain phones. The control sticks unscrew for transportation and can be stashed in the rubber areas at the bottom of the controller.
This is what the fuss is truly around and also one of the main reasons that the DJI Air 2S represents the current pinnacle of drone layout.

Moreover, it will certainly likewise fire 4K Ultra HD at up to 60fps and also 1080p at up to 120fps. As if that’s not enough to sharpen the cravings, the video camera also has an electronic zoom feature as well as can shooting HDR, Hyperlapse and also automated Panorama. These are stats not also the Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom can compete with.
