5.What should be done if the image transmission gets stuck?
a. It is recommended that users fly the aircraft in an open environment where wireless interference is minimal.
b. Close any apps that are running in the background on the mobile device.
c. Pay attention to the direction that the antennas point. Ensure the antennas point to the aircraft.

Vision System

1.What situations are not suitable for the vision systems to work?
a. Flying over a monochrome surface (e.g., pure black, pure white, pure red, pure green).
b. Flying over a highly reflective surface.
c. Flying over water or transparent surfaces.
d. Flying over moving surfaces or objects (e.g., people that are moving, brushes or grass blown by high wind)
e. Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically.
f. Flying over extremely dark (<10 lux) or bright (> 10,000 lux) surfaces.
g. Flying over surfaces that strongly reflect or absorb infrared waves (e.g., mirrors).
h. Flying over surfaces without clear patterns or textures.
i. Flying over surfaces with repeating identical patterns or textures (e.g., tiles with similar colors).
2.Can the aircraft fly over water surfaces?
It is not recommended that users fly the aircraft too close above water surfaces. When the aircraft is flying over a water surface, the vision positioning function will be disabled automatically, and the flight altitude information will be determined by the GPS position information and barometer. As the accuracy of the position information is relatively low in the situation, the aircraft may fall into the water.
3.Can the aircraft take off in a foggy environment?
Do not fly the aircraft in a foggy environment. Otherwise, the aircraft vision systems may malfunction, and the aircraft may even fail to land.
4.What is the sensing range of the vision systems?
Forward:
Precision measurement range: 0.35 to 22 m
Detectable range: 0.35 to 44 m
Effective sensing speed: ≤12 m/s
Backward:
Precision measurement range: 0.37 to 23.6 m
Detectable range: 0.37 to 47.2 m
Effective sensing speed: ≤12m/s
5.Vision System FOV
Forward:
Horizontal: 71°; Vertical: 56°
Backward:
Horizontal: 57°; Vertical: 44°
6.What is the hovering range of the aircraft when the downward vision system is working?
After the downward vision system is enabled, if the height between the aircraft and takeoff point is 0.5 to 60 m, the aircraft can hover; if the height between the aircraft and takeoff point is 0.5 to 30 m, the aircraft can hover at the accurate altitude that has been set.

Battery

1.Battery Max Charging Power
38 W
2.Battery Type
LiPo 3S
3.After the battery is inserted into the aircraft, can users connect the aircraft to the charger to charge the battery?
No.
4.When using the battery for the first time, the battery does not turn on. How can this issue be handled?
To ensure the battery safety in transportation, the batteries will be put into the hibernation state in advance. Users need to use the charger to charge the battery so that it can be awakened.
5.How is the Mavic Air 2 charged?
Users can connect the battery to the charger to charge it, or insert the battery into the battery charging hub to charge three batteries. The battery cannot be charged if users connect the aircraft to the charger.
6.Should the battery be powered off before charging?
Yes, the battery should be powered off before charging. The power port may be damaged if the battery is not powered off before charging.
7.Battery Maintenance Tips
If the battery is to be kept idle for a long time, then ensure the battery level is about 60%. It is also recommended that users charge and discharge the battery every month so the battery can be kept in a better way.
8.What is the charging logic of the battery charging hub?
The battery charging hub will charge the batteries one by one according to battery levels. The battery with the highest battery level (charge remaining) will be charged first.
9.How long does it take to fully charge a battery?
100 Minutes
10.Common Battery Button Functions
Press and hold: Power on the battery.
Press once: Check the current battery level.
Press and hold for four seconds: Link the aircraft to the remote controller.
11.How can the car battery be used to charge the intelligent flight battery?
Users first need to purchase the matching car charger.

Software

1.Can the Mavic Air 2 be used with DJI Goggles?
No.
2.When ActiveTrack 3.0 is enabled, is the terrain follow mode supported?
Yes.
3.When shooting a hyperlapse video, if the shooting is disrupted by an operation such as low battery RTH or control stick movement, will the video stitching be affected?
If more than 25 photos have been taken, then the video that can be generated is longer than one second. In this case, no matter whether the hyperlapse video shooting is finished normally or exited abnormally (for example, if it is interrupted by low battery RTH), the aircraft will still stitch the video by default.
4.Is precision landing supported?
Yes, the precision landing range is 0.5 to 30 m.
5.Can the aircraft avoid obstacles when it is shooting a QuickShots video?
When the obstacle avoidance requirements are met, the aircraft can avoid obstacles when it is shooting a QuickShots video.
6.Does the Mavic Air 2 support live streaming?
The live streaming function is supported from the DJI Fly app (v1.4.12), which can be enabled in “Camera View Settings” to share.
7.Does the Mavic Air 2 support DJI Flight Simulator?
No.
8.Does the Mavic Air 2 support D-Log and D-Cinelike?
In Normal and Slow Motion Video mode, only D-Cinelike mode is supported.
9.Does the Mavic Air 2 support GS Pro?
No.
10.What parameters can be manually adjusted in the app?

Auto and Manual modes are supported.
For Auto mode, EV and AE (automatic metering) can be adjusted.
For Manual mode, shutter and ISO can be adjusted.
Video mode:
Auto and Manual modes are supported.
For Auto mode, EV and AE (automatic metering) can be adjusted.
For Manual mode, shutter and ISO can be adjusted.

Upgrading

1.During the firmware update, if other apps are enabled and DJI Fly is switched to the background, will the update continue in the background?
No, and DJI Fly will indicate that the update has failed. In this case, users should download the firmware again for the update.
2.What situations will cause an update failure?
a.The battery level should be at least 40% before the update; otherwise, the update cannot be performed.
b.If the aircraft or remote controller is powered off during the update, the update will fail. In this case, users should power on the device and update the firmware again.
c. The update will fail if the network is disconnected while the firmware package is being downloaded.
d.If the aircraft update fails several times or the remote controller cannot link to the aircraft, then it is possible that the remote controller firmware version and aircraft firmware version are not matched. In this case, it is recommended that users use DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic on the computer to update the remote controller and aircraft separately to the latest version.
3.After the firmware package is downloaded, can the update continue if the network is disconnected?
Yes.
