As we saw in a previous leak, this drone bares a striking resemblance to the Mavic 2 series drones, but presumably this model is smaller and lighter than either the Mavic 2 Zoom or Mavic 2 Pro. It8217;ll undoubtedly be cheaper too.
The uploaded documents detail some of the new features, as well as these images. The drone will be able to reach 34 minutes flight time on a fully charged battery, which is some improvement over the first generation which managed just 21 minutes.
As well as that, it can reach top flying speeds of 68.4km/h (about 42.5mph), and the three-axis gimbal supporting the camera will enable super smooth video shooting, as revealed by DroneDJ who first shared the images and details.

Like every previous DJI consumer drone, the beauty isn8217;t just in the specs, it8217;s in automatic flying modes. DJI8217;s next drone will feature obstacle sensors and an updated version of ActiveTrack, which enables the drone to lock on to a subject and follow it, or fly around it without losing sight of it.
In addition to the drone details, the quick start manual reveals more detail on the remote control that leaked previously and shows that the grip for holding a smartphone has now moved to the top, rather than be held by feet at the bottom.
With opportunities to go outside being limited currently, it8217;ll be interesting to see just how popular this new drone will be. From the details we8217;ve seen so far, however, it looks as though it8217;ll improve many of the elements of the first Mavic Air, making it a worthy successor.
