DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo with Smart Controller
DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo with Smart Controller

Description

Chinese drone giant DJI has opened a new chapter in its history with the launch of the DJI Air 2S drone. Let’s take a look at the long-awaited novelty together.

Package contents and main functions

In keeping with tradition, DJI offers the new Air 2S as a standalone drone or as a kit, the DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo, with additional accessories for greater use.

The main characteristics of the new model indicate its reliability:

  • Weight – 595 g;
  • Folded dimensions – 180 × 97 × 77 mm;
  • Opened dimensions – 183 × 253 × 77 mm;
  • Max. flight time (in ideal weather) – 31 minutes;
  • Max. hovering time (in ideal weather) – 30 minutes;
  • Flight distance – up to 18.5 km;
  • Flight speed – up to 19 m / s (in sport mode);
  • The limiting range of wind speed is 8.5 – 10.5 m / s;
  • Operating frequency – 2.4 GHz;
  • Internal storage – 8 GB;
  • Battery capacity – 3500 mAh.

In all respects, we see that this is a solid updated version of the already beloved by many models of the Mavic line. However, once again there is a tendency to move away from the mention of “Mavic” in the title. Clearly, the new DJI Air S2 is the closest relative of last year’s DJI Mavic Air 2, but with an improved camera and obstacle detection sensors, an expanded set of automatic camera movements, increased levels of protection and the quality we always look forward to as a matter of course from the next DJI news.

Under ideal weather conditions, the manufacturer promises a maximum flight time of 31 minutes. If you want to extend the flight time of the aircraft, it is better to buy the DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo, which has extra batteries to quickly recharge the aircraft.

The new model has additional obstacle detection sensors. They are mounted on top of the front of the quadcopter to additionally “lead” the drone when it flies at an angle forward. You will have the option to set up the aircraft in the DJI Fly app and you can choose the possible action – stop the aircraft in the air when it detects an obstacle in front, or avoid this obstacle. For many novice pilots, additional sensors will be a great help in learning how to fly a quadcopter.

Camera and Zoom Features

The upgraded model’s more powerful camera sensor and 5.4K video capability are major upgrades that professional photographers and videographers will appreciate, hence the higher price point compared to the Mavic Air 2.

The main camera features of the new DJI Air 2S:

  • 1″ CMOS sensor;
  • burst and single-frame shooting with a resolution of 20 megapixels;
  • available video formats: 5.4K (up to 30 fps), 4K Ultra HD (up to 60 fps); 2.7K (up to 60 fps), FHD (up to 120 fps), MP4/MOV;
  • support for microSD memory cards (up to 256 GB);
  • 4x zoom for 4K (30 fps), 2.7K (60 fps) video;
    6x zoom for 2.7K (30 fps), 1080p (60 fps) video;
    8x zoom for 1080p video (30 fps);
  • 88° lens with f/2.8 aperture.

DJI engineers decided to equip today’s novelty with a 1-inch sensor, which is higher than the capabilities of Mavic Air 2. The camera of the new model is not only larger in size, but alsoaboutlarger pixels. It produces images with a resolution of 20 megapixels, supports JPG or Raw DNG photography format. There are more options for editing. Photos are generally more detailed and less noisy than those taken by the Air 2’s 48-megapixel camera.

More impressive in its characteristics, the matrix of the new drone allows you to record video in 5.4K format at a frequency of up to 30 frames per second. Even if we compare the DJI Air 2S with the fairly powerful Mavic 2 Pro, up to a 1-inch sensor of the latter is only capable of shooting video in 4K at up to 30 fps. The 5.4K format is especially good for watching videos on large screens. You can shoot in this format at a frequency of 24, 25 or 30 fps.

By choosing the 4K shooting format, you can count on a maximum frame rate of up to 60 frames / s, for standard 2.7K and 1080p the frequency is similar. However, there is a separate slow motion option that can be activated via the app for 1080p (at 120 fps) recording. Separately, it is worth noting the excellent stabilizing ability of the gimbal on the DJI Air 2S. It is his work that provides a smooth picture when shooting video and a truly cinematic look of the picture.

The sensor’s high resolution means the new Air 2S can shoot video at 2x and 4x zoom. Even the 2x zoom capabilities are impressive, especially when the drone is circling over an object of interest. You can achieve the “telephoto” effect that is usually obtained when shooting from a helicopter. At 4x zoom, the zoom effect is even more enhanced, but this, of course, also affects the picture quality. So for professional shooting, a 2x zoom is more suitable.

Review of the new DJI Air 2S quadcopter

Easy to use

The new Air 2S should be one of DJI’s most intuitive and easy-to-fly and shoot drones. Flight preparation is quick and almost intuitive. If you are not the first time you hold the copter remote control, then in less than a minute you will get your UAV in the air. The remote control scheme is similar to the earlier models of the line, so that experienced users of DJI quadcopters will not need any additional piloting training. And beginners will appreciate how quickly you can learn the basic principles of controlling the DJI Air 2S.

With this drone, you will have access to a whole host of automatic flight modes, designed to help those who want to get high-quality pictures and videos, but at the same time only nominally control the shooting process. One of the most noteworthy modes can be Point of Interest, in which the drone will automatically circle around you or someone else as soon as you mark an “interest” by simply tapping on this object or item on the screen. Well, the sensors located around the entire perimeter of the drone body will not allow it to crash into a possible obstacle that will arise on the way.

Auto modes are especially handy when you need to film yourself but no one is around. Professional vloggers who love shooting outdoors will also appreciate the capabilities of the Air 2S.

DJI developers have added another new mode – MasterShots, which will allow you to automatically record video along a given drone flight route, and then edit and “glue” the video, even supplementing it with a soundtrack.

The ActiveTrack 4.0 mode has already managed to catch the fancy of many users. There is one on this new model. Do not lose sight of the object of interest to you, but at the same time be sure that your drone will bypass all possible obstacles. Even if the object is lost from view, the drone’s camera can quickly find it again and continue tracking.

Well, the new DJI Air 2S is indeed a solid drone for the mainstream user thanks to its updated features and improved performance.

Introducing MasterShots

MasterShots is an evolution of the QuickShots feature already known to many fans of DJI flying cameras. The advantage of MasterShots is its offline nature. With its help, users will be able to create the best shots anywhere with one touch. To do this, just select an object of interest, and the drone will shoot, sequentially performing a dozen different maneuvers, keeping the object in the center of the frame. And after that, the system will create a short video of the highest quality level.

Spotlight 2.0

During shooting, the system will automatically fix the camera on the object of interest to you. At this time, the drone can perform maneuvers and fly in a spiral, or use the camera to create a close-up shot. At the same time, with the help of zoom, you can achieve clear shots at a decent distance without losing flight safety.

Active Track 4.0

With this function, you can guide the drone to follow the object of interest smoothly and not worry about hitting any obstacles. If the drone’s camera loses an object for a moment, tracking can be quickly resumed.

Point of Interest 3.0

Turn this feature on if you want to create a great movie by circling over or around an object. You will get spectacular shots that will remind you of the best adventure films.

Discover a new world for you and your drone

    The media could not be loaded.  Okay let me start out with the stuff I don’t like. There’s not much…I don’t like how it doesn’t have rear obstacle avoidance. I wish it went just a little faster/more power for better air control. I also wish it had an adjustable aperture. Wish the EXP’s for yaw were lower and more yaw range in the gimbal. Wish it had slightly more dynamic range too.Okay now what I do like!Coming from an Inspire 2 with X5s, the size is the biggest advantage overall. The fact it folds down so small is amazing. No longer needing to carry around a 50lb pelican case for my drone is quite convenient lol. The Air 2S is much more low key and quiet for “sketchy” quick flights or through tight obstacles. Plus, the Air 2S shoots higher resolution than the Inspire. Yes, given it’s not Cinema DNG RAW, but the D-Log and 10-Bit H.265 files from the Air 2S are very workable (Especially with the new Mac M1 processors). It has maybe 12.5-13 stops dynamic range from my eye and color grading tests in Resolve. As for color grading the footage, the shadow recovery is much better than highlight recovery so try and always expose your image for the highlights as they cannot be recovered nearly as much in post. The files are a good bitrate 5.4K 24fps 10-Bit, meaning you have the resolution to zoom in without loss and they have better color tonality. The colors can be a little strange especially blue midtone shadows. Fixable in post though.You just have to understand how amazing it is to have a camera that you can put virtually anywhere in the air with a detailed 5.4K video. With three batteries charging you can get a lot of flights in one day with this guy, maximizing your opportunities for creative shots in many different locations. The size of the drone is amazing. Like legit the size of a large camera lens. The controller also fits nicely as the thumb sticks come off and store in it making it more flat. Also, the controllers battery life is just simply amazing. It lasts forever. The bag the drone comes with is extremely nice and great if you are just doing a trip with it. Everything fits in there. The included ND filters are very nice and honestly required for most flights. No noticeable color shift on the filters and they balance on the gimbal perfectly. I did order myself some additional CPL filters that helped quite a bit when shooting water and such. You may need something darker than ND32 for mid day shooting FYI.Battery life is roughly 20 mins of spirited flying while still leaving plenty reserve and not letting them go below 20% to extend their life. Plenty for some fun hyperlapses, which is an awesome included feature. The master shots feature (will the drone will fly itself and get some base level shots) is good to just do as a base level and completes in a couple mins. Results are good for zero effort.Finally, the range on it is superb. 9/10 situations it will have no problems. Staying within line of sight keeps signal the best (and legal). Flying behind objects will sometimes lose the connection. Also in cities (areas with lots of wifi signals) it has less range. But I would say it has better signal than the Inspire 2. The Inspire 2 was more “nimble” and “smooth” given the better power envelope of the motors, 360 spin of the gimbal, and second operator all adding to smoother footage of hard to track items, but could not go nearly as far. With the Air 2S line of sight becomes a TINY speck on the horizon.For a single man band this drone is only beaten by the Mavic 3, which is several times the price ($5k for the good “cinema” version). In my 10+ years of videography I haven’t been this stoked on a new tool in a while and it will be used a lot when the bigger cinema drones cannot fly or are not practical.Okay let’s compare the drones I have flown/used: Mavic Air 2S ($1000) vs Mavic Air ($500) vs Phantom 4 Pro ($1600) vs Inspire 2 X5S ($10,000) vs Freefly Alta 8 RED Monstro Zeiss CP3 ($175,000)When I compared the top dogs like an Inspire and a flying cinema camera (Alta 8), the Air 2S surprisingly holds its strengths pretty well. They are different tools for different jobs and are not apples to apples AT ALL but the fact the Air 2S and everything in the bag is about the same size as the MoVI (Alta 8’s Gimbal) Controller is kind of funny.The image quality on the Air 2S is much better than the Mavic Air and the P4P both in resolution and dynamic range. The resolution is comparable to the X5S camera but the dynamic range of the Air 2S is noticeably worse than the X5S. Obviously, if you are shooting something with budget and need 8K with good lenses, the Alta is your best bet. But that is 2 huge 80lb boxes, has a 10 min flight time at 45lbs with massive batteries. Minimum of 2 operators. Whole different beast. Can’t really compare the Alta to the Air 2S.If you’re into travel vlogging, weddings, real estate, landscape this is the perfect drone if you can’t quite stretch to get the Mavic 3.Also to compare this to the “48mp” Mavic Air 2, the pictures are actually much sharper because of the 1 inch sensor and better lens. Plus the Air 2 is a 12MP camera with pixel shift it’s marketing talk. Megapixels are not everything and the true 20 MP of the Air 2S will be enough for most uses I think.Also note 4K 60 has a crop where 5.4K does not. Can be pretty useful actually IMO.Amazing where technology is going and excited to see when the Mavic line comes out with interchangeable lenses someday! Great product DJI!Included is a video I made along the California Coast with exclusively the Mavic Air 2S and the included ND filters. Enjoy!

    Early days as yet but a lack of practical information about how to use it effectively was missing in my view. If you have used other drones beforehand then maybe fine but as a novice a very nervous start. Go on line and watch YouTube video’s is a way forwards

    What can I say about this drone, other than it’s superb. I’ll start with dispelling some of the confusion I had when looking at licences and general rules…

    Directly from the flight association they simplified it by saying currently you can fly with an operator ID under and A2 which allows minimum distance of 50 metres, at the end of the year bordering into 2023 this drone will enter an A3 category which means you need to stay 150 metres away from people unless you have A2 (COC), and then it returns back to 50 metres… Simple.
    I have signed up to A2 (COC), as this certificate is only £80 and last five years so I don’t need to be concerned about when the rules change. I’ve signed up through “The UAV Academy”, other firms offer the exact same certificate but are charging significantly more as they are resellers rather than the primary exam Proctor.

    Only criticism is not about the actual product itself it’s trying to find instruction manuals online from DJI and downloading the app which required going to files and making an exception on my smartphone to install a non certificate app

    The set up after the app is installed is fairly intuitive, icons are pretty self explanatory, the battery life is OK more would probably make it heavier. The gimbal is next level tech, it’s stable and responsive creating some of the best pictures I have seen from any photographic device that is in motion.

    The obstacle avoidance is also top notch, I did a 50 metre run up a normal mode to my face, and it’s still intact and stopped with plenty of room… After that I picked a fight with the gazebo, shed, tree and inadvertently a pigeon the flew out of the tree in front making the drone do an emergency stop.

    The sound is not intrusive although it’s full running motors suspending in the air so it’s never going to be silent. Appan setup it’s going to take a good hour to do everything from the app to read the instructions and get familiar with the controls… That hour is well invested as I only needed it on slow mode for the first two outings after that straight up two normal and even a dabble on sporting.

    My son had a cheap drone to see if he liked it, my daughter had a slightly more expensive drone that I thought felt robust and was ok on both flight but picture is shaky, however this once again like the technology is next level it feels suitably robust and made to last.

    Apart from praising once again the quality and versatility of this drone, I must stop typing and go out and play with it some more.

    Happy and responsible droning to everyone hope this helped

    Everything came in good condition. The outer box was damaged in shipping but the actual drone box was fine and the drone itself is already inside of the carrying case so it survived shipping very easily. It originally said it was going to take a month to ship but it only took one week. Smart remote control works perfect and is very bright. I would recommend buying a screen protector a strap and any other accessories that help protect it. There are tons of videos on YouTube on how to get it set up and to download the newest firmware as well as setting the cameras for the most optimal pictures. The picture quality is phenomenal. The ND filters are good but I will be buying darker filters in the future. Remote and battery seems to come with a tiny bit of charge but I would definitely charge everything first before using it. Firmware updating and all that takes just a few minutes you should be flying within an hour or so. If I get around to it I’ll upload some pictures that I take with it. All in all I say this is a safe purchase for any of the doubters. I’ve seen some unlucky buyers out there but I think those are the exception and not the rule I even got the insurance. definitely a good buy so I hope this convinces anybody that was on the fence.

    DJI Fly App is a perfect addition to this drone. All the new features are exceeding my expectations. The transmission sometime losing even in very close range (20-30m) which is kind of sad after there were no issues with my previous Mavic Air.

    Unwrap it, charge it up and go fly. Simple, intuitive and the camera is brilliant with loads of automatic video/photography available from the app. I would definitely recommend this package with the additional batteries and ND filters. An exposure control on the camera would have been nice but tbh with the filters it’s not really a problem, and I guess an expsure control might have compromised the performance of the camera/gimbal with additional weight. Just one word of caution, I use mine with an iPhone 13+ which, when using a case, is a real squeeze to fit into the holder. Not fallen out yet, but a slightly larger cradle to accomodate the larger phones available would have been good.

    I recently dropped around $1.4K on a DJI Air 2s system, and have flown this particular setup 7 times. The problem (and this is major), is that out of nowhere, following a firmware update, the controller and drone will not connect. Checked a few forums, and ran across a vid from the U.K. from 2 years ago, discussing the exact same problem. Not only that, but the person also ran a vid showing him losing the connection IN FLIGHT, something none of us wants to experience, and for good reason…..The fact that the video itself is almost 2yrs old, and there have probably been dozens if not hundreds of updates, leads me to believe that it may be a hardware issue, i.e. bad or subgrade chips used in the manufacturing process. I honestly couldn’t say. I’ll be contacting DJI this afternoon to see what I can do to get the problem resolved. In the meantime, I hope those of you about to drop big bucks on one of these will read and heed this review.UPDATE: After holding for 25 minutes, I got a DJI representative, who talked me thru the following:1. Download “DJI Assistant 2 (Consumer Drones Series) on your Win or Mac comp. and install.2. Open the program, and enter your login info (same as when you registered online)3. Power on and connect the drone to your computer.4. A DJI Air 2s icon will appear onscreen. Select it.5. On the left side of the screen, you’ll see a drop down menu. Select Firmware UpdateNote: You’ll do steps 3-5 with your remote control as well.Next: On the Remote Controller, do the following1. Press these 3 buttons at the same time:Fin + Camera button (right side, next to gimble), and Film button (Index finger)You’ll hear a steady string of “beeps” Now, power up the drone, then hold the power button (battery) for 4 seconds. The drone will “Beep”, and the battery lights will rotate. Both devices will stop their actions once paired.It worked for me, but for the next few weeks, I’m going to be extremely cautious about where I fly, until I feel confident that this fix actually works consistently.

  8. DJI air 2S

    Critcisms:
    – Edges in any full FOV mode i.e. 4k less than or = 30fps or 5.4k, are a little soft. To be expected with a 22m equiv. No aberrations or anything major though.

    – 4k 60 is very soft I think because it’s 1:1 pixel sampling from the middle of the sensor, (i.e. no down sampling). Pretty sure the bitrate has something to do with it also – quick pans in complex environments and the compression goes haywire. The crop still equates to way more than a 1/2.3 inch or 1/2 inch sensor so I’m not sure why 4k 60 looks at least no better than the mavic air 2’s. To my eye it looks like excellent 1080p or mediocre 1440p at best. The lack of sharpness with 60fps will probably make me upgrade to a mavic 3 at some stage lol. DON’T BUY THIS FOR ‘4K NOT 4K’ 60.

    – Some wish DJI made a bigger battery for this version. The advantage is that the ‘power – weight’ of this drone is stupendous. The ascent (and descent) rate is 6m/s which is phenomenal for a drone that lasts realistically ~24 minutes in the air – it’s very inspire 2 like. If you have a mini/mini 2, this has a similar flight time. In the UK with CE transmission power, the battery life and signal strength complement each other rather well – you’ll generally find yourself running out of signal strength around the time you’re running low on juice. This will be anywhere from ~7-8km out if flying perpendicular to the wind.

    – Also, you must fly at around 12 – 13m/s to get the most flight time (and dist.) in most scenarios, which requires you to manually hold the sticks from maximum. In normal mode it will default to 15m/s which is annoying – I wish there was a software feature to change this yourself like with the Autel 2. In return to home it defaults to 12m/s. Obvs if you’re flyng with the wind on the way back, you’ll get closer to a 12m/s relative if you push the stick to get 15m/s, or even fly in sport manually if the wind is particularly strong.

    – If you’re not doing stupid range tests, the battery is more than long enough – with the fly more kit, you can get well over an hour of flight time which I think is more than most people will want to fly in a day.

    Don’t buy this drone for the 4k 60, I think you’ll be disappointed. 5.4k 30 is fantastic however. SHOOT IN DLOG. The oversharpening with the standard colour profiles is criminal and causes lots of ‘aliasing shimmering’ if you are watching the footage back on certain displays.

    Stay away from birds – seagulls are particularly aggravated by the frequency of this drone (much more than the mini), so especially stay high and/or fast when near the sea).

    Other pertinent notes:
    – Use smart photo mode for night shots – ‘hyperlight’ is excellent.
    – 4 antennas = great signal even in CE countries
    – Multicharger thing is useless – charges the batteries sequentially which takes hours. Buy the ‘LYONGTECH Battery Home Charger’ – also allows you to easily maintain the LiPo’s at 12V for storage e.g. if you’re not flying all week. You don’t want to be replacing £90 batteries too often.
    – You’ll need a lot of storage – at least a few 256gb sdxc cards if you’re going on a trip for more than a week. You’ll probably end up being a lot more picky about what and when you film for this reason.

    Bought a used version – good quality and works ok. Advertised as coming with DJI care refresh however it doesn’t and can’t be reapplied as it’s used. Amazon did reduce the price when I told them this.
