Build quality is excellent, and all moving parts feel durable as well as reliable.
The Air 2S flaunts some impressive portability qualifications, 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. Of course, that added unfolded size is just the extended prop arms and the drone body stays the exact same, so it’s still incredibly tiny in both configurations.
The controller moves far from the folding layout of that used with the Mavic 2 Pro and is rather a taken care of dimension with a bigger battery, so battery life is typically much better. But as opposed to affixing phones to arms at the end of the controller like the Pro, this controller uses a telescopic grasp on top to sustain phones.

These are stats not even the Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom can compete with.
