FAQ

Product
The camera performance, intelligent features, flight time, and transmission system have all improved significantly, and the new DJI Fly app provides an even more streamlined flying experience.
Mavic Air 2 can only be used with the DJI Fly app. Try out the flight tutorials in the app to learn to fly your drone safely.
No.
Yes. Mavic Air 2 will be compatible with the Smart Controller through a future firmware update.
Attach the propellers with the white markings to the motors with white markings. Next, attach the propellers without markings to the motors without marking. Ensure the propellers are attached correctly, or the aircraft will not be able to take off.

Carefully hold the camera to prevent damage, and slowly rotate the filter to attach or detach it. Make sure the ND filter is mounted securely to avoid accidental detachment during flight.
Safety & Obstacle Sensing
Yes. Mavic Air 2 has an auxiliary light for improved vision and safety in low light conditions, similar to the Mavic 2 series.
No. Mavic Air 2 provides forward, backward, and downward obstacle sensing.
APAS 3.0 has been dramatically improved compared to previous generations. The system generates a real-time map of its surroundings and currently offers the best obstacle avoidance available on a DJI aircraft.
Integrating the APAS 3.0 obstacle avoidance system, ActiveTrack 3.0 has been greatly improved compared to ActiveTrack 2.0. Overall tracking capabilities have improved greatly and re-establishing tracking after the subject has been lost is faster than ever, all while actively avoiding obstacles.
Remote Controller & Transmission
OcuSync 2.0 supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands. It features stronger interference resistance due to automatic frequency switching, delivering 1080p video transmission feeds at up to 10 km (when unobstructed, free of interference, and FCC-compliant).
No.
The smartphone clamp of the remote controller houses the antennas. Make sure that the antennas are pointed toward the aircraft. Check the user manual for more information about setting the antenna direction. Additionally, ensure you are not wearing any transmitting wearables, and that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned off on your mobile devices.
The remote controller boasts a prolonged battery life of up to 240 minutes, a more comfortable grip, an improved antenna design, and a more convenient line of sight when looking from screen to drone.
Camera
Normal photos can be taken in 12 MP or 48 MP, and RAW format is also available for more advanced editing.
Mavic Air 2 supports normal video at up to 4K/60fps and HDR video at up to 4K/30fps. Slow-motion videos are available in 1080p with up to 240 fps (8x slow-motion).
Mavic Air 2 offers D-Cinelike as a flat color profile.
The HEVC (H.265) is a more modern video codec than H.264; it retains more details and uses less storage space.
Yes.
SmartPhoto integrates scene recognition, HyperLight, and HDR into one mode for optimal results. Scene recognition optimizes different camera parameters for different scenes and supports intelligent recognition of five categories: sunset, blue sky, grass, snow, and green trees. HyperLight optimizes photos taken at night or in low-light situations. HDR selects the best image from multiple layers thanks to an adaptive dynamic expansion algorithm that determines optimal parameters.
Intelligent Features
8K resolution can only be used in Free and Waypoint modes.
FocusTrack consists of three different intelligent tracking modes: ActiveTrack 3.0, Point of Interest 3.0 (POI), and Spotlight 2.0. All three modes offer different tracking features for any situation.
Mavic Air 2 supports QuickShots, Hyperlapse, and FocusTrack.
APAS 3.0 and FocusTrack are not available while recording in 4K at 60, 50, and 48 fps, 2.7K at 60, 50, and 48 fps, and 1080p at 120 and 240 fps.
We recommend PotPlayer for Windows systems and SPlayer for macOS.
Firmware
You can either update the firmware over the DJI Fly app or the DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic desktop software (available for Mac and Windows). Both can be found on DJI's official homepage.
Use either the DJI Fly app or DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic to update the firmware.
