I have a few more days to return DJI Spark to Amazon. I decided I will get the white Mavic Air instead. However, the black one is tempting.

Which color would you get or are you getting and why?

I guess this little drone is a good upgrade on the Spark but it is almost twice the price. If it were me I would go black or white.

It annoys me that the "white" pillar in the vote is red, the "black" is orange, and the "red" is yellow....

After finding out that the air uses ancient wi-fi instead of oyc. I went to my order page and had to hit the refund button. Wi-fi, really? Wi-if is like two tin cans with a string between them.....

I ordered a red one. It looks like my grandson will be a happy Spark owner once I get the Mavic Air. I'm hoping the 1/28/2018 ship date is accurate.

You should be able to see it ok regardless of color, it uses wi-fi like the spark so it won’t go very far without losing signal;(

The specs say up to 2000m in Europe

Video Transmission

1. What is the Mavic Air’s video transmission range?
    When connected to the remote controller:

2.4GHz

FCC: 4000 m, CE: 2000 m, SRRC: 2000 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant).

5.8GHz

FCC: 4000 m, CE: 500 m, SRRC: 2500 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant).

When connected to a mobile device:

Max height: 50 m
Max distance: 80 m

I bought a couple of two way radios and on the box it claimed 35 mile range, in my testing under normal conditions I can get about a half a mile out of them.....

Strange. I did not know DJI sold two way radios. Thanks for the heads up!

as an upgrade for a P3A I would say yes. Since the P3A camera is 2.7k video. This MA is 4k video

Yea, like only the oh so miniscule distance of 2.5 miles.... That's  more than enough for most people.

by the specs you will lose some distance over the P3A, and the flight times are roughly the same. and being way more portable is a plus

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about the dispatch date. I'm in Australia, so I'll be watching to see who gets theirs when.

I ordered Red also, and because that's the colour my partner picked. Hey, when you already have a P4 and a P4P, you need to think like a politician... hehe

Red is great, fire trucks are red, roses are red, my bank account is usually in the red - what's not to love?

Anyone going with White so it can reflect the sun when it's flying in sunny places and possibly get less hot - ie Africa?

I got the white one as it appeals to me the most (stormtroopers) and perhaps it will reflect some heat off.

Ordered the onyx black.  I've got the Mavic Pro, and while it's awesome, I feel the mavic air spoke to me directly w/ the higher bitrate in 4k, the 1080p/120fps (I shoot both my Sony & gopro at this speed), and finally the most important thing, the size!  I do quite a bit of travel, and every ounce counts at times.

I'd get Red or Black. White is too hard to see when there are clouds.
