DJI Mavic Air – Unboxing and First Look

Categories Drones

Yeah, ok, I’m in love. This is one of those times where it’s worthwhile to spend the extra money on the premium product, if you can.

Having this drone takes away a lot of the stress of travelling with a drone. The main issue I was concerned with about the Mi 4K was the size: since it is a lot more bigger and intrusive I was concerned customs may have issues bringing it into other countries. But yeah, my budget for buying a 4K camera for my b-roll went out the window with that one. Guess that’ll have to wait.

The one thing I didn’t consider before buying it is that it is SO SMALL that I can’t launch it off of mid length grass or mulch or many surfaces because the blades would hit. A drone with taller landing gear can take off in more places. A flat surface is an absolute must (or launching from your hand, but that can be dangerous and I do not recommend).

I’m going to try and get a couple more videos up before my trip including a vlog talking about the trip planning, a new surprise action cam review and hopefully the video quality comparison between the Mi Drone and the Mavic Air.
