Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo:
The DJI Mavic Air 2 is DJI's latest offering in the consumer camera drone market. In this video I unbox and look at the Mavic Air 2 for the first time, go through each item that comes in the box and analyze whether the Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo is worth the extra cost or if you should just stick with the basic Mavic Air 2 kit and save your money.

Join the online drone community for an amazing day of drone content - the third annual SpinUP event will be live online September 12, 2020 - learn more:

Please note that this is not a review of the the Mavic Air 2. This unboxing is my first time seeing the new drone and I have not flown it as of the making of this video. I am very excited to get the DJI Mavic Air 2 into the air and see how it performs compared to the Mavic Mini and the Mavic 2 Pro. It's size and price point seem to make the Mavic Air 2 a great contender for someone who might want to purchase their first camera drone.

    Just curious as to what mauals came with yours. I just got the same Fly More Combo and receved the "Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo (DJI Smart Controller) V1.0 ....Its only the "In the Box & Disclaimer and Sfety Guidelines" booklet.

    Also, I received the "Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo (DJI Smart Controller)
    "Quick Start Guide" V1.0.

    Shouldnt' there be a "real manual " for the Mavic Air 2?

    DJI website lists:
    Mavic Air 2 Quick Start Guide v1.0
    Mavic Air 2 User Manual v1.4
    DJI Smart Controller User Manual 1.6

    Great video. I agree with you on the case so I went ahead and ordered a Nanuk 915 case which came with the foam inserts for the DJI Mavic Air 2 Fly More combo. Boy that's a mouth full. It's got all these features; Waterproof (IP67 rated), dustproof, shockproof, and Automatic purge valve. If you really want to protect your drone, I'd say these cases are well worth the money. I paid under $90 for this case and when you compare it to the DJI case, well there's no comparison. I've even seen some off brand waterproof hard cases in the $40 range with the foam cut outs for the DJI Mavic Air Fly More combo and I'd even prefer them to the included case here. I will say however that since it comes with this bundle you're not paying the full $89 price for the case here. DJI charges $169 for their hard case. I went with the Nanuk case both for it's lower price of $88 and after doing my research on these cases discovering that they were designed for the Canadian military and first responders for carrying their high tech gear. I also prefer supporting one of our allies to China which is where the lower priced hard cases are probably made. That's also another reason for chosing DJI drones in my book. Not to mention that they give you a lot for your money.

    Quick note: the "triple" charger isn't really what you think. It only charges one at a time... still nice because you don't have to sit and switch the batteries on the charger as each one finishes.

    Great tutorial. However, like other new MA2 folks have discovered, do not use the multi-port charger when first charging MA2 batteries! Instead, use the single-port cable that connects to the multi-port accessory to charge each of the 'new' batteries for their first full charge. Once this has been accomplished, you're good to go with the multi-port charger.

    As an average Joe, I fly maybe 3-5 time a year. I bought my Phantom 2 4 years ago, the 3rd battery died on me recently. When I decided to buy my 2nd drone, I consider the Mavic air 2. Here is the reason I didn't go with the combo.
    1st, My Phantom 2 only got 15 minutes flight time, it was good enough for me to get all the footage I want in 1 flight (again, as a average consumer).
    2nd, you can buy an in-vehicle charger or a power bank with AC outlet. 1 hour road trip will give you about 80% battery. So, you really don't need a 2ndary battery unless you are a professional.
    3rd reason, the DJI battery has terrible quality, you can find many post online about their battery dead. Speak from my own experience, if your brand new battery sitting there for too long, it will die. SO, buy 2 new battery and sitting at home is not really making sense.
    But, I do admit, the fly more combo is a great deal. DJI drone hold value extremely well. You can buy the combo and sell one of the batteries to get some of the money back.

    The bag is worth $20., the 3 blades are worth $20, the 3 filters are worth $30, the charging hub is worth $5, the USB charging hub is worth $5 and the batteries are worth about $60 each for an additional $120. That is $20 + $20 + $30 +$5 +$5 +$120 = $200 . DJI is charging $190 for them now in the combo package and that is a fair price for the combo package. If you want these things at a later time, you will pay about 2 to 3 times that price. At $800 + tax on the base mavic air 2, I do not consider this a toy. If you just want to just play with a good drone I would suggest the mini for $449 + tax. If you are serious about taking videos and stills, don't forget about the SD card too. I think DJI has split the package for the novice that just wants a toy and the serious amateur that will need all of the combo package and more. It is up to you what you want to do with the drone and your needs. The DJI care refresh package is what gave me pause. Should I pay $79 for an extended warranty to protect my $1,000 investment from my misuse of the product? When Amazon offered me the warranty for only $61, I said "Yes" to the warranty.

    That what you said at the end about getting a mini instead of this one it might be good for someone on a budget but still, If someone can't afford Mavic air 2 he/she should wait and save more money and get air 2 because the quality is much better and his range is amazing and also collision sensors might be a good option for beginner and mini doesn't have them. So $499 vs $799 ( without an extra package for someone on a really tight budget I would say save $300 extra or even a $500 and go for Mavic air 2 )

    You are very good at this. No wasted words, you get to the point and you speak clearly.
    I'm new to drones. I'm a skier. Can I set the drone 60' ahead of me, start skiing down the hill and have the drone stay 30' ahead of me? I think I read that is possible in some drones. I saw where the drone would fly away from you when you are standing still but I would want it to maintain a constant distance although that panning feature would look great too.
    Those filters would work well on a sunny ski slope.
    Can the strap on the bag work as a belt?
    I would use the drone in National Parks in my retirement travels also.
    Would the Mini work well for my needs?

    Hi Ready Set Drone man, will you be able to point me to a place where i get my
    Mavic Air 1 drone fixed? I mean my issues is that my drone does not turn
    on sometimes , it is as if it is hanging in the boot up
    process...propellers turn , and gimbal moves but i dont hear that read
    sound being played, very annoying.... sometimes it does complete the
    power on / boot up cycle BUT then i also struggle to link the remote and
    the drone.
    All of this was after a safety update i did for the fly-zones.
    Its just strange because sometimes i am able to fly and it works fine.
    Sadly the last 2 weeks i have tried and tried and the drone will not
    turn on fully, no idea what is going on.
    I have crashed the drone in gate , but this was more than a year ago
    and i have flown the drone at many places thereafter so it is very very
    Hope you can help me, thanks

    I’m from Australia and the dif between these sets are $1499 and $1899 ( AUD ). For us it’s $400 Australian dollars different, still worth it because the battery itself cost $199 AUD. So both batteries come with fly more are already worth $400. The rest of the accessories + $400 worth of batteries yes it’s a good deal. But also crying in the corner seeing American only spend less than $1000 USD for fly more. AUD sucks

    I would absolutely not throw away the silica packet. It is there to absorb any moisture that might be in the atmosphere or in your drone etc.
