A DJI partner site has accidentally leaked the photos of DJI’s Mavic Air 2. The photos unveil some of the features of the foldable drone. The drones are going to cost around $ 799. The Drone DJ has uploaded clearer, and FCC recently uploaded sharper images of the drones after some of it by mistake.
The world leader in making drones is bringing out its next version of efficient drones. The world has slowed down all due to the virus and the global pandemic. At a time when there is a shortage of demand and scarcity of labor, there are few companies that are getting work. It is no surprise that drone companies feature in the smaller list of companies whose demand has multiplied like anything over the past few weeks.
The release of the drone this month was first pointed out by a series of leaked pictures. Then again, there was a tweet from the company which left hints for us to grab. It hinted at the possibility of a new drone in the making. The first Mavic Air drones had debuted in early 2018. Two years later, we have a new entry to this model line that is all set for a refresh.
The $399 Mavic Mini, for instance, makes up for a good 30 minutes of flight time on every charge, while the other $919 Mavic Air is clocked at just 21 minutes.
It is expected to be released on April 27. So all the fellas out there, just grab your armchairs and wait for the big release of this month. This report is based on a series of leaked information and picking from hints as well. On April 15, 2020, the company had tweeted a short video clip. The clip showed the rough making of a novel drone. In a hashtag, there was the phrase “Up Your Game,” which further strengthened our conjecture.
This is how we came to know about the equally specific time – April 27, 2020 at 9:30 PM EDT.
The price has shocked us to the core. After OsitaLV, the filmmaker and drone pilot had shed some light on the pricing of the drones, it was expected to be lower but even then, this is a steep fall in prices. Also, the Mavic Air 2 was expected to be priced at $ 799 to $ 120, which is a good deal lesser than the market price of the first version of Mavic Air, i.e., its original version.
FCC had unveiled some special insights about the part 2 of the new drones from the company as well. The information stated that the size of the battery shall be 3500 mAh at 11.5 volts. This can well be over 40Wh. Now, that amounts to being 50 percent bigger than the 2375 mAh battery strength of the first version of Mavic Air.
Thereafter we had valuable inputs from ANATEL, which is Brazil’s version of the FCC. It said that the battery life should be 34 minutes. It is faster than the 31 minutes record time of the drone line. There is also some detail about the speed aspect. It is said that the maximum speed of 68.4-kilo meters per hour that is roughly 42.5 miles per hour, will be clocked by the drones.
Mavic Air 2 will have the ability to take images up to 48 megapixels. These images could be of 12 MP added together to make up to 48MP. This camera ability is the product of a bigger ½ inch CMOS sensor. A 4x zoom shall be provided. The camera will easily capture 4K videos. As of now, not much is known about the frame rate.
