Hello, I have a gopro and was thinking about mounting it on the MA2. I saw a few Vids with that being done. I wanted to get your view if I should try it.

Cheers.

I wouldn't because the Mavic Air 2 already has a good camera

One must be careful when adding "stuff" to the bird. First off, it will cut your flight time down. How much? Don't know, but you will find out.
Adding mass will place more current needs on the esc's, battery and motors.
The bird PID values are "tuned" with the motors, ESC's, props, and the weight of the actual bird.
It probably won't hurt for the short term, but the bird will have shorter flight times, and may behave "not as you have felt" with the GP mounted...
Like above poster typed: You already have a good camera on the bird. Besides, no wide angle distortion/bent horizons....

Thanks all, it’s an eye opener with the load and ESC , makes total sense. Let the bird fly as intended

Hi, hhasanain. Thanks for reaching out! We strongly discourage attaching or mounting any accessories which are not designed for the Mavic Air 2 as it could potentially cause flight instability and could result in a flight accident.
