NEW DJI Air 2S Coming Soon | Everything We Know So Far

DJI Mavic Air 2 (DJI Website)
The rumour mill has really picked up this week with information about the soon to be released Mavic Air 2S now simply called the DJI Air 2S. This refreshed Air 2S is rumoured to be launch on April 15th with its new 1″ sensor, Ocusync 3.0 and new upward facing sensors. In this video, I go over all the latest rumours and specs including release date and pricing. All information is speculation at this point so take this information with a grain of salt.

    Big like

    Honestly I think if they put sensors on the sides of the drone that would be better then on top. The only problem with the air 2 was when tracking it would crash sometimes cuz it didn’t have side sensors

  3. Jean-Francois Fortier on April 11, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    I hope they will get rid of DJI Flight for DJI GO 4 or an upgrade of that. DJI Flight is much too limited for photography if a 1 inch sensor is integrated. That is my opinion.

  4. Lee Drone Flyer on April 11, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    will the batterys for the current mavic air 2 work in this new air2s??

  5. Covers70 on April 11, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    If it doesnt have side sensors it will be a pass for me. Follow me would be pretty much perfect if they would just put side sensors on it.

  6. Alistair Ruane on April 11, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    How much does it weigh. Anything over 250g in the UK’s rules is a waste of time.

  7. Samuel Nieves on April 11, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    I have a feeling the S will be like Sony’s line of sensitivity mastered cameras. They cut the megapixels down from 48 to 20 (maybe to increase the size of pixels in that 1” sensor for epic video).

    This would be great news as I’ve been researching the cheapest way to get a Sony a7s series camera in the air and it’s not cheap by a long shot. This could be the way we get S equivalent footage for half the price.

  8. Aldrin Marang4 on April 11, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    If this Air 2S will have the 1 inch senson I could only the Mavic 3’s sesor size.

  9. Darcer's Tech on April 11, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    The only thing I want to know is whether it will get the EASA (C1) certification. If not, it’s absolutely dead on arrival over here in the EU.

  10. Jayden Mendivil on April 11, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Really dji? I just bought my zoom 🙁

  11. Michael Pacitti on April 11, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Hi Sean. Will the lens filters for the Mavic Air 2 fit the new Air 2S?

  12. saywhen on April 11, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    do you think the smart controller will work with this new drone ?

  13. james R. on April 11, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    It seems like only the lower end and the middle of the DJI lineup are getting refreshed lately and not the Mavic Pro line or much of anything else high end. I wonder if they are waiting to see what FAA required tech will have to be included before upgrading the high end models. I also wonder what type of "grand fathering" will be granted for drones not equipped with the latest required tech upgrades and what restrictions will be placed on their flights…in other words, should we wait till it’s all settled and the dust clears or buy now ?

  14. Oldschool-Freak-TV on April 11, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    I’m awaiting the Mini 2s….

  15. dipesh shah on April 11, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I bought mavic air 2 fly more combo in December 2021. I did not even open it. Now i want the air2s combo with the controller. Air2s is far better then air 2 and i am already regretting my purchase. Does anyone want to trade i am willing to give a small discount on my mavic air 2 combo in exchange for air2s combo?

  16. Terry Situ on April 11, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    So the smart controller will not work with the new drone?

  17. Vincent Allard on April 11, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Makes sense given there’s an FPV mode you can set in the app even on the mini 2.

  18. Nazar Azizi on April 11, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Could be really shame if you are showing Dji mavic air2 and talking about dji Air2s..

  19. Mike Roche Media on April 11, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Interesting. Would love to have a 1 inch sensor in a drone that size. I wonder about smart controller compatibility, I pretty much fly exclusively with the current smart controller but I have no idea if it will be compatible. We shall see.

  20. Hector Coria on April 11, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    This is NEW news to me, thank you.

  21. Sammy Gizmo on April 11, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    More specs needed before I’ll upgrade to Air 2S. Thank you for sharing. Best regards from the Philippines.

  22. chris salazar on April 11, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    STOP saying MAVIC AIR 2S …..It’s just called air 2s NOT “mavic” air 2s

  23. Turd Peterson on April 11, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    i just bought a mavic air 2 about 3 weeks ago, but if my batterys will work in the 2s then i might buy then new model

  24. Conner Rodriquez on April 11, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    I hate when DJI make the price so close make it my drone less value

  25. Roll-Over Beethoven on April 11, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Looks like pricing is going to be out of reach for many ! ……….Basic : $1200.00 AND Fly More Combo : $1600.00

  26. David Anderson on April 11, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Sorry, the camera on the Mavic Pro 2 is no Hasselblad. While the color is good, the lens is basically soft and has serious distortion. The edge quality is rubbish at best. Obviously, the HQ mode solves this to some extent and makes the drone quite usable for my work, but the branding on the camera is no more than a name compared to the quality that Hasselblad used to represent. Hopefully, this unbranded camera will be better. Thanks for the video.

  27. Mario Scott on April 11, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Ocusync 3.0 means the universal controller will be obsolete and new one on the horizon

  28. churchill378 on April 11, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Stop calling it mavic . It’s clearly going to be called the The Air2s dropping the mavic name.

  29. Al Quadrone on April 11, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    It’s called dji air 2s
    Mavic part is dropped.
    Just like with the Mini 2

  30. Peter Fritz on April 11, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Always enjoy your videos, mate.

  31. Conner Rodriquez on April 11, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    This is going to absolutely completely killed my favorite drone mavic air 2. I thought that will make me happy but nope. The price are $200 different from the combo. I really should sell my drone right now

  32. Vladimir on April 11, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    The biggest feature would be if the Air 2 S was 100 % E.C regulation O.K !

  33. Aerial FX on April 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    How much does it cost?? For the fly more combo

  34. PakDie on April 11, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    i want but one mavic air 2s

  35. Rey Renteria on April 11, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Haw will the new mavic air will cost of money

  36. Voyager Vyom on April 11, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Amazing. Now if only they can make a drone with these features at 249 grams 😉

  37. Piloteering Overlander on April 11, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Literally just bought an Air 2 a week ago….

  38. Tao Wysocki on April 11, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    $1,299 USD for the Fly More Combo

  39. Franz.Metrixs on April 11, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Has it 10 bit?

  40. Largo Kentauri on April 11, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    today, the price of dji air 2s was leaked at EU.
    Too Expensive!!!!

  41. Tony_yeung on April 11, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    should’ve wait for a month before I got my air 2 :/

  42. Ilan Olivares on April 11, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Recently bought an Mavic Air 2 a couple of weeks ago. Today I went to Best Buy to return it. Ready for this new release. Really hoping for Smart Controller compatibility.

  43. Erik's page on April 11, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Leave out the Mavic. It’s The DJI Air 2S

  44. Michael Daquino on April 11, 2021 at 10:47 pm

  45. JR's Variety Tv on April 11, 2021 at 10:49 pm
