Product
There are three ways to fly the Mavic Air. You can use the dedicated remote controller, your smartphone, or both together. For the other two options, the Mavic Air connects to your smartphone via DJI GO 4.
Connect the Mavic Air with your mobile device and follow the instructions in DJI GO 4 to complete activation.
No.

Remote Controller
Yes. You can use an ordinary USB cable to connect your smartphone to the remote controller via the USB port at the bottom of the controller, but this may result in more discomfort when handling. Different cables come with the aircraft to meet your needs.
For safety reasons, every Mavic Air has a unique Wi-Fi name and password. These are listed on the side of the aircraft body, in the battery compartment, and on the carrying case. (For iOS systems, iOS v9.0 or later is required.)
Connect your smartphone to the aircraft’s Wi-Fi by scanning the QR code with DJI GO 4 app for first-time use. Alternatively, you can manually type in the Wi-Fi name and password.
First, connect your smartphone to the aircraft via Wi-Fi. Next, enter the DJI GO 4 app and go to Wi-Fi Settings to change the Wi-Fi name and password. You can also change the Wi-Fi name and password with DJI Assistant 2 on a computer.
No. You can only scan the QR code to connect to the aircraft’s Wi-Fi using DJI GO 4.
Propulsion
Doing so isn’t necessary.
The non-foldable propellers are more streamlined, making the Mavic Air smaller and more portable when folded.
The Mavic Air can withstand wind speeds up to 10 m/s.
16,400 ft (5000 m).
Features
The control range is 8.2–19.68 ft (2.5–6 m).
The Mavic Air supports the following panorama modes:

Vertical: The camera automatically takes three vertical photos, stitching them into one panorama.

Horizontal: The camera will take nine photos from different angles, stitching them into one panorama.

180°: The Mavic Air automatically rotates its body and gimbal shooting 21 pictures, stitching them together in DJI GO 4 for a breathtaking 180° panorama.

Sphere: The Mavic Air automatically rotates its body and gimbal to shoot 25 photos, stitching them together for an eye-catching spherical panorama.
SmartCapture only allows the Mavic Air to fly at eye level when it’s 9.8 feet (3 meters) or less away from you. This is to ensure better flight safety and control precision. You can gesture to fly higher or lower when it’s farther away from you.
Batteries
Yes.
Users can insert the adaptor into a battery and turn it into a mobile power bank.
The power button powers on and off the battery. To do this, press it once, and then press again, holding it for at least two seconds to power on or off the battery.

The power button also allows you to check the battery level. To do this, press the power button once and observe how many LEDs light up for the power level.
It takes 55 minutes to charge a battery fully when using a standard charger or a Charging Hub.
It is recommended to charge batteries at least once every three months fully.
Updating Firmware
No. If you do, the update will fail. You will then need to download the firmware and update again.
Before the update is complete, the aircraft will need to restart. Once it does, reconnect your mobile device to the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi. DJI GO 4 is just reminding you that you will need to do this for a successful update.
Yes.
Connect the Mavic Air to DJI GO 4, and the app will inform you of appropriate updates to ensure consistency.
a. Low-battery level. Make sure the battery level is higher than 50%.
b. Powering off the Mavic Air or the remote controller during the update. If this happens, please restart the Mavic Air and the remote controller and begin the update again.
c. Internet disconnection when downloading firmware.
d. If update failure persists, or the remote controller does not link with the aircraft, there may be firmware inconsistencies between devices. In this case, use DJI Assistant 2 on your computer to update your aircraft and the remote controller to the latest versions separately.
Video Transmission
When connected to the remote controller:

2.4GHz

FCC: 4000 m, CE: 2000 m, SRRC: 2000 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant).

5.8GHz

FCC: 4000 m, CE: 500 m, SRRC: 2500 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant).

When connected to a mobile device:

Max height: 50 m

Max distance: 80 m
720p at 30 fps.
The video transmission latency to your mobile device is 170 to 240 ms. However, this is subject to the performance of your mobile device and signal interference.
DJI GO 4 chooses a frequency band automatically by default, but users can manually select between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies, according to actual needs.
