    I just ordered it.
    It was a bit disappointing to know that third party applications (dronelink) do not support it as they did with Mavic Air.
    It looks like it will take some time for DJI to release MA2 SDK.

    A key problem with the DJI Fly app is that it will not work with MOST Android phones or tablets! That, with the absimal customer service from DJI, should be taken into account before buying.

    The Maviv Air 2 is actually more noisy than that, it seems like you reduced the volume when the drone is flying.

    You pissed me off with this video, now 2 months after investing in a Mavic package I now MUST upgrade begrudgingly knowing I've wasted $649.99. Did enjoy the review, thanks. Say do you know if its possible to incorporate a precision GPS locator on downed drone?

    Tom, you fail to mention that the batteries loose about 5% of charge per week while unused. UNACCEPTABLE!
    I do agree that it is an impressive new drone.

    I like a good review, that focus on one drone only. A drone cannot be compared with another drone, as each drone offers each own features. This is the best review that I've seen on the Mavic Air 2.

    Just re-watched this while stuck in quarantine here in San Francisco. I am also doing a lot of shopping from home and now might be the time for exploring on getting a drone to film with here in S.F. I just purchased a DJI Osmo Pocket for my camming needs and the drone might be a good accessory for my needs (as I will be producing and filming a documentary on transgender life in S.F. during the 1970s). Thanks for posting it and by the way - the buzzing noise scars people as they don't want to be cut up, so they believe. Be safe, Tamara

    This is a hugely informative review Tom, thank you. However, given what you said about its stills image quality, the files you uploaded look dreadful - esp at the claimed "48MPx" mode. Truly dreadful, especially when considering the massive 92 Mb image file size. Am I doing something wrong?

    Great review. The footage here is amazing. I have a Mavic Pro and I don't seem to get anything like the quality you have here. Is that because of your work after you film (on your computer) or is the Air 2 just a better drone?I guess I am asking if it comes out of the drone like that?

    Hi Tom, Great review of this drone! You drone videos seem to cover many kilometers of land area. Does the drone stay within its proper range automatically so you don’t lose it? That would be my big worry. I am new to drones so apologies if this is a “newbie” question. Thanks! Also your videos are very professionally edited. What editor do you use? Thanks again.

    WARNING TO ANYONE PURCHASING THE MAVIC AIR 2 for APAS 3.0 - Active Track, Focus Track, POINT OF INTEREST FLYING - will only work at frame rates of 30FPS or Lower at any resolution setting. The DJI Fly App will not allow APAS 3.0 - select target until you set your frame rate to 30FPS or lower. It's a real problem considering these automated tracking modes are primarily used by many for tracking moving subjects. DJI need to publish this in their User manuals.

    Hi my friend Tom, you gave us a whole show for this air 2. I ordered it after seeing this video (and others on YouTube). BUT, you did hide from us that the "advanced gimbal setting" for pitch speed and smoothness is not available on the Mavic Air 2. A very important function for quality videos. Are you really going to use it without these options?!?! I just hope that you really did a review and not a promotion 👍 because I am disappointed with my purchase. Note: I hope DJI will add it, and it will be done mainly because of influencers like you. Please help the drone pilot community by putting pressure on DJI to add the fonction (by doing video that show the missing of the function and compare it with the pro 2 and even the Mavic Mini, or contacting them), Thank you for your help Tom.

    In your review for the mavic Air 2, why didn’t you reveal and point out that there was no advanced gimbal controls in the app?
    Was everything supposed to be positive because they loaned you the drone to try out? I thought you were unbiased.
