It's worth it to upgrade from Mavic Air to Mavic 2 pro ?

Hi, guys is the picture quality much better from the Mavic air to Mavic 2 pro?
I want to buy the Mavic 2 pro but after all the reviews and comparison on youtube, I'm a bit puzzled when it comes to compare picture quality between the 2 drones.


Is double the price worth the investment?

Thank you

Depends on what you want out of your drone & your level of disposable income.

I'm in the same situation that you are, but I've decided to keep my Mavic Air and wait and see what happens. The Mavic 2 pro is not worth the money unless it's night video or photography that you want.  I expected the day time video quality on that Hasselblad camera to blow my Air away and it doesn't, so the for the cost it's not worth it. Maybe DJI will do something about it with firmware, and then I will look at it again. For now I'm sitting put.

Depends on your needs. If you can sell your MA for a good price and absolutely need more flight time and range go for it. But you won't get a noticable better quality.
They are around the same.

I agree with A CW, the pro 2 would outperform the air in those requirements.

ill stick with Air till mavic air 2 or mavic 3 pop out from Djis factory.
..Size could be even smaller than Air to fit my pocket, mavic 2 is like Tiger tank when flying )

I upgraded from the Air for the same reasons that you list. The image is better on the M2P, though not by a giant margin. I am looking forward to getting better with dlog-m that can only be done on the M2P, but many people may not care about that.
The longer flight time and better signal range just crush what the Air can do though. Occusync 2 is no joke. My M2P flies with a perfect signal for a much longer range than my Air could even attempt.

Dirty Bird,
  Absolutely beautiful video.  I love it.

But I have a question, and I don't mean this
to be derogatory or antagonistic. I am just asking.

How do you justify flying at night, and what I would guess is
higher than 400' AGL.

Again, I love the work.

Thanks!

John

Only reason why i love the MA2 is the small portable feeling of it. I mean in most cases fly more then3 miles you cant see it anymore so do you really need the range?
plus the video is just as good and the flight might not be so long but extra battery wont hurt to help with that problem!

mavic air and the mavic 2 pro are not even in the same markets.  however mavic air vs mavic pro (1st gen) then maybe something to argue about here in either side. but the mavic 2 pro and mavic air are entirely targeting different people..


really as mentioned comes down what you want out of the drone.  one starts at $1500 and other starts at $800. both are equally as easy to fly and if you handle one you can handle the other, just be awar, maybe a bit overwhelmed at first on mavic 2 pro with all the buttons and options that you get.

but here is how i break it down:

best possible camera, battery life, amazing wireless range and tons and tons of options in a foldable drone.. get mavic 2 pro.

what a easily deployable drone with a decent 4K camera that folds up into a "pocketable" size, wieghs about half as much as the bigger mavic drones, and is fairly discrete and very capable and not intimidating to other people... get mavic air..
