Enjoy my "all stock" DJI Mavic AIR 2 Range Test. How Far Will It Go without any mods? Get the AIR 2 here shrsl.com/2ajv4
The Air 2 really does look most like a shrunken down Mavic 2. DJI has been trying to fill every gap in it's line up with something different at an incremental price and this one squeezes right in there between the Mavic Mini and Mavic 2 offerings.
My Tried and True Gear that works:
Drone Launch Pad amzn.to/2ucvqsg
One+ 6T Phone - Fly App Never Crashes amzn.to/2Ea6O9u
Apple Ipad Air 2 amzn.to/2kjcBPw
DJI Action 4K Hat Cam amzn.to/2MAdcgG
Sony 4K Action Hat Cam amzn.to/2I08fKN
DJI Osmo Pocket 4K Tracking Cam amzn.to/2ZyHMeF
Portable Body MIC amzn.to/33cCFjb
SD Card for all 4K Recording that lasts amzn.to/2N8pCce
3D Printable SD Card Tool bit.ly/2QICVns
Portable Compact Table amzn.to/2Q58g41
Portable Chair with built-in Sunshade amzn.to/2DOgPum
Full Featured Mobile Power Station amzn.to/2Whn2rb
Wrist Watch amzn.to/2pHllFk
DJI has thus far been able to hold off the competition for the most part in just about every corner of the drone market. With the Air 2 offering, it seems they want to bridge the gap between small size and rich features while achieving maximum flight time, range & camera quality.

    I just love your range tests, because you do record it. I've said it before and I'll say it again, You always push the envelope so that we don't have to and I love that you give a real life scenario to what can happen with drones. BTW, that gimble control with moving side to side was amazing.

      @Dustin Dunnill can you do a test in night conditions? I'm interested how well it handles stabilization in low light, bracketed photography and if it can "tap to fly" at night. My Mavic Air has major troubles with that even when flying in street lights it wobbles a lot and can't tap to fly at all.

    These super duper range tests are pretty cool. But it seems like 98% of them are being flown in the middle of nowhere with very little to no chances of WiFi or other forms of RF interference. That sounds great in a perfect world we'd all get super range on these drones. But the reality is most of us are in areas where WiFi and other forms of RF interference won't allow us to get nowhere near the range that he did in this video. I know I never do. Last DJI drone I had was a Mavic Pro and I could barely get 3,000 feet before my video feed was getting too choppy to watch on my iPhone.

    Great range test, you gotta know your limits!, this proves on a full battery you can make it out and back within a certain safety margin.
    If it's calm not a problem, if it's a little blustery don't expect as much out/return range as the battery may drain to compensate more.
    Thanks for sharing.😀👊👍

    Dustin, what are things that you think might greatly influence the range/distance this Air 2 can fly? Does height matter? Hills? Trees? At first I was not able to go past 1500 ft....and just recently was able to get to 5000 ft before the Weak Signal warning and emergency Return To Home activated. I guess Occusync is not so great after all.....for some of us

    I estimate your drone was around 630 meters/2066 feet above the ground at the furthest point where you turned around. Don't Hawaii have the same FAA limit of 400 feet/120 meters? The most reasonable interpretation for the max height limit is to keep within it in relation to the ground at the current location of the drone, not in relation to the launch point. You might want to descend to stay within 400 feet above the current point next time. During normal flight you also descend/ascend.
    PS. This is a great video, great views, very good commentary. The best range test videos, very educational! Thank you for your work!

    Aloha. Nice suspense.
    I don't know, but I suppose that quads' aerodynamic considerations are similar to helicopters (without swashplates) near max forward speed such as lift asymmetry and other complicated stuff. Anyway, I strongly suspect you squandered some energy with full forward speed. There must be a sweet spot. An experiment to determine VBR is what I would really like to see. Waddaya think?
    As to range tests generally, always conduct them upwind. ;-)
