In a lot of ways, the Mavic Air is the hybrid offspring of the Mavic Pro and DJI’s Spark drone. It has the best features from each of its parents, resulting in an attractive, smart drone that will be highly sought after for years to come.
From its predecessor the Mavic Pro, the Air inherits many aspects of its physique. Most notably, it features the Mavic line’s signature hinged arm design that allows it to fold up for easy transport. However, thanks to some Spark DNA, it’s also considerably smaller and lighter than the original Mavic — making it arguably the most portable drone in DJI’s lineup to date. When packed, it’s not much bigger than a stick of deodorant, which is amazing when you consider the features it has. The Air is undoubtedly the most portable drone in this price range.
