The DJI Air 2S is readily available to purchase today from DJI’s official store and lots of other retailers.
As is often the situation with DJI drones, the Air 2S is offered in a standard kit or Fly More Bundle. The conventional package consists of the drone, controller, one battery, props, a battery charger and all cable televisions, as well as costs $999/ 899GBP/ AU $1,699.
The Fly More Bundle is excellent value at 1,169/ $1,299GBP/ AU$ 2,099, due to the fact that in addition to getting everything in the conventional kit, you also get two additional batteries, a three-battery charging center, a handbag and a collection of 4 ND filters.
As always, the Fly More Bundle uses the best worth for cash because getting every one of those additionals independently would cost far more.

When it comes to the shoulder bag– well, you’ll certainly require something to carry your drone as well as devices in, as well.
Compact, lightweight and also mobile.
Superb build top quality.
In regards to the fundamental design, the Air two is extremely comparable to the DJI Mavic 2 Pro although in a much smaller sized as well as lighter plan. The propeller arms are folded up in for transportation as well as folded up out for flight, with the front arms swinging out while the rear arms rotate down and out. Build quality is outstanding, and all moving components feel durable and trusted.
The Air 2S flaunts some outstanding portability credentials, weighing in at simply 21oz, with a folded size of 7.1 x 3 x 3.8 in and also an unfolded size of 7.2 x 3 x 10in. Obviously, that added unfolded size is just the prolonged prop arms and the drone body continues to be the same, so it’s still extremely little in both configurations.
The controller moves far from the folding layout of that made use of with the Mavic 2 Pro as well as is rather a dealt with dimension with a larger battery, so battery life is typically far better. However instead of connecting phones to arms at the end of the controller like the Pro, this controller uses a telescopic hold on top to sustain phones. The control sticks unscrew for transport and also can be stashed in the rubber sections at the bottom of the controller.

As if that’s not enough to whet the appetite, the video camera additionally has a digital zoom function as well as can firing HDR, Hyperlapse as well as automatic Scenic view.
