Looks like a DJI Air 2S is coming.....

https://dronedj.com/2021/03/15/d ... ed-dji-mavic-air-2/


To summarise



What could the upgrade be?

A few options come to mind for the updated version, so let’s go through them. Due to the name being 2S rather than 3, likely, the new drone won’t be much of a generational upgrade, rather a smaller one that tweaks it to make the experience better for pilots.

And goodbye to the Mavic name.

DJI Airsense (ADS-B)

The first one is DJI Airsense, also known as an ADS-B receiver. When the Mavic Air 2 was released, DJI announced that it comes with an ADS-B receiver inside it, allowing the drone pilot to know if there are aircraft flying nearby. Soon after, it became apparent that only the drone’s North American model would ship with this new sensor as COVID created stock shortages, forcing DJI to leave it out of the international model.

It’s possible that DJI now has enough stock to start shipping units with the module inside, and thought it might be better to rebrand it with a new name that also conforms to the company’s minimalistic naming scheme it now uses.

Improved camera

The original Mavic Mini was replaced not long after it was released with the DJI Mini 2. This was reportedly a result of the CEO not being happy with the original Mavic Mini camera. There is a chance that the same has happened, even though the Mavic Air 2 has a great camera that could see it being given more shooting modes or even a new sensor altogether. This is less likely, though.

As I am writing this, well-known leaker OsitaLV posted on Twitter about the possible inclusion of the upcoming DJI AIR 2S, having an IMX686 sensor capable of taking 64 MP photos, 4k at 60 fps videos and is larger coming in at 1/1.7″. This definitely makes the improved camera option a very likely option.

OcuSync 3.0

With the DJI FPV drone launch, the company also announced OcuSync 3.0, an improved version of OcuSync 2.0, mainly focused on improving the latency to make flying a high-speed FPV drone a little easier. There is a chance that DJI wants to equip this new version of the Mavic Air 2 with OcuSync 3.0, but it doesn’t really make sense as you won’t be racing a Mavic around like you would an FPV drone.

alot of duplicate threads this morning...i'll comment here:


this morning i saw the entry on the "fcc feed" myself and i had no idea what to make of it because i couldn't believe there would be an air2 successor so quickly.  depending on what this really turns out to be, i don't really know what to say about this.

Still no classification badging for EU/UK yet based on images/info out so far.  It would be good if this fell into C1 also to find out what if any deal is offered to Air 2 owners to swap out.

I bought the Mavic Air 2 in December and the SDK came out recently, it is not possible to change it again to have the Ocusync 3.0 and a few other things.
I really hope for an update of what I have.
Selling it now would make me lose at least half the price I paid for it.

By now on the waypoints I have put a stone on them. I hope they give the possibility to use FPV glasses.

Phantom 4 released march 2016, phantom 4 pro released November 2016, the pro was a complete upgrade including djis first 1” sensor camera, so its possible air 2 could come with a big upgrade, but i really hope its M3Pro .

If i have a look at this article https://dronedj.com/guides/dji-air-2s/ and especially at the already last year leaked pic, my impression with the additional sensonsors is,
that it will be another test platform and user acceptance test for the upcomming Mavic 3.
It looks like the DJI release cycles become the same like mobile phone release cycles. Just do a smal portion of adding features and improvements, just to earn more money.

you mention that the SDK has been released. So does Dronelink have this added to the list of drones it works with? Or still beta?

I would be really disappointed if it is a Arir2S as I am really looking forward to the launch of a Mavic 3 and waiting for that. I have been looking at the Autel for a while but being a Dji fan opted to wait for the Mavic 3. What is Dji waiting for and holding off the release of what could be their best selling drone on the market that could blow away the competition.

pretty sure whatever ends up launching whenever will likely be the most beautiful drone on the market at the time; always does.

I really hope that there isn't a new model this soon, I only bought the MA2 last week, and I'd hate to see my new hobby becoming something like the iPhone upgrade game, I know I'm not forced to upgrade, and that some will see this as inevitable progress, but for me it is a little disappointing if true. I'll watch this space.

What do you want 8K............... 4K is way to heavy in terms of Data. I never go over 1080p

To add the EU classification that we need to fly it sensibly here needs to be a new model I believe.  The leak also shows this has the new UKCA mark too.

What will happen, if DJI publishes a new drone and no one will buy it ? Would they start to care more about the customers requirements ?

I'm pretty sure that I will not buy another drone just because of sticker, so the custommer care is essential for my next choice...

I suspect that the lack of classification will delay many purchases, in the mean time the mini 2 without classification exploits a great loop hole in the rules.

You post a lot of sense DAFlys. I was thinking about buying an MA 2, but will wait now and if in the unfortunate case of crashing my Mini 2 I will just buy another Mini 2 combo.(You can't have too many batteries or spare props can you?)

I just bought a mini 2 especially because of the loop hole it exploits,  I have a M2P so dont really need it but I can drag it out if I need to be legal.

I would be willing to pay 1000 for a drone that is classified. the way the sticker looks, it won't work. The eu market doesn't seem to be of interest to dji

DJI has over 80% of the consumer drone market.
That is the big problem.

By the looks of it DJI has finally given up the "quarter" Bayer and went with a classic sensor. Now all we need is Pocket 2S with this camera on...

I wonder if the "quarter" Bayer sensor was from a USA supplier and they can no longer buy it.

I seriously doubt it, as all these pixel binning, high MP small sensors (that I know of) are either from Sony or Samsung. If I am not mistaken DJI uses the Sony ones.

DJI got mixed results with these line of sensors for some reason. Although they've got one working quite well with the Air 2, they totally failed with the one in Pocket 2. P2 can not even perform the simplest functions adequately (like recording proper 4K 60 or tracking an object smoothly). They also could not get the HDR working properly with it, which was supposed to be the strong suit of a Quad Bayer sensor setup.

I guess they simply want less headaches, so I would not be surprised if we never see one of these sensors in a DJI product again...

We should find out in a about a week from the rumours.

I guess we would! According to the rumor mill Air2S it set to be released on the 15th...

If the sensor is really IMX383, then the Air2S would be the flying version of the probably most apricated and respected compact camera of the last 9 -and counting- years (Sony RX100)
