I recently acquired a Mavic Air, it’s the third drone I’ve owned and by far the best one. Here are some notes for others who might be interested in purchasing one of these drones.
I would definitely recommend the Mavic Air Fly More package as it gives you a bunch of extra accessories that are essential in my opinion, especially if it’s the first DJI drone you’re buying. I love the extra batteries and the carrying case in particular.
Keep in mind that the drone has 8GB of inbuilt memory but you will want to rely on that only as a backup. It is a good idea to order 3 x 32GB Sandisk Extreme microSD cards, in that way you can record in 4K without any problems and whenever you land your drone for a battery change you also change the memory card. This will offer some insurance against card corruptions or worst case scenario crashing or losing the drone and with that all your day’s footage. More information about SD cards here.
Other essential gear:
- Landing pad for use on rough ground, grass and sand.
- Camkix battery storage bag.
- Freewell all-weather filter kit.
For video editing, I use Final Cut Pro on my Mac.
Enjoy your Mavic Air!
