Compact, lightweight as well as mobile.
Superb build high quality.
In regards to the basic style, the Air two is extremely similar to the DJI Mavic 2 Pro although in a much smaller and also lighter bundle. The prop arms are folded up in for transport as well as folded out for flight, with the front arms swinging out while the back arms rotate down and out. Build top quality is excellent, and all relocating parts feel robust and reputable.
The Air 2S boasts some outstanding mobility credentials, weighing in at simply 21oz, with a folded up dimension of 7.1 x 3 x 3.8 in and an unravelled size of 7.2 x 3 x 10in. Naturally, that additional unravelled dimension is simply the expanded prop arms and also the drone body remains the very same, so it’s still very little in both arrangements.
The controller relocates away from the folding layout of that used with the Mavic 2 Pro as well as is instead a dealt with dimension with a larger battery, so battery life is usually far better. Yet as opposed to attaching phones to arms at the bottom of the controller like the Pro, this controller uses a telescopic grasp at the top to support phones. The control sticks unscrew for transportation and can be stowed away in the rubber areas at the end of the controller.
