I'll also add: -
H.265 CODEC
Mechanical shutter
variable aperture
60p in c.4K
Improved image processor with a video bitrate of at least 100MBPS
1", 20MP sensor
Stable and robust gimbal
Solid 30 minutes off of one battery
Enhanced OcuSync
& all with no added weight to the drone or increase in size
Retractable landing gear would be nice too

Probably a Mav 3 2020+ concept but no harm in asking

Guys, with all these most realistic and modest wishes you forgot the most important one: Ability to fly into outer space to take the real "Little Planet" pictures

Something Nasa is working on as we speak.
Probably.
Only to be beaten by the Russians, Elon Musk and China.

And now back on topic.
There is a ton of things I can think of to improve the Mavic Air.
But all in all it is a great drone for it's price!

I fully agree and have no doubt that we are going to see some nice evolutions. But for the time being I am already overwhelmed with all the settings and features that I have to learn and try out right now. Not in a hurry to get even more immediately...

I can imagine.
If you don't have some photography / videography background,  there is a lot going on in that department.
And sure, DJI will improve the MA even further. At least they did with their previous birds, so I expect nothing else now.

TBH what I’ve listed is already on my P4P - a smaller version of that camera and the MP2 will accommodate those specs.

It would be a nice feture if DJI would make a "charge cradle" like the one for Spark.. but for upgrade it you be nice if the remote could be intregred so that will be charged to.. I love the Charge station with drone and 2 extra batteries for my Spark, that would good if they could make that for the NEXT AIR, and please consider a "ground" route control, a Preplaned flight. that could also be nice.

All very good points and inclusions. What i would NOT like to see on the MA2, is .400 firmware..........
Also, it should be able to fly more than it is grounded, and Waypoints, and 5000 MAH batteries.

Good points to consider, however, do we really need to wait for Air 2 to cover some of the points above. For Instance, Dji definitely needs to improve the annoying frequent compass calibration issue in the next firmware, you agree guys?

The Mavic Air has the perfect size for a travel/action drone and DJI.

The Mavic Air has the perfect size for action sport and traveling!
So, if DJI would focus on that aspect it will be very soon the best selling drone ever  - and it would fit perfectly in there colection.

Spark = smal, easy to use travel / fun drone
Mavic Air = action/travel drone like a "GOPRO" in the air
Mavic Pro = Drone for filming in higher quality.
Phantom = professional photo/film drone with changeable lenses and more megapixel.
Inspire = Cinema drone

What needs a action sport/traveling drone?
It should be a mix of the Skydio R1 and the Mavic Air 1 (AI tracking + form factor and flying modes of the Mavic Air 1)

1) Most importent is the autonomus following mode! (up and downhill!)  it sould use an AI driven tracking algorithem + the GPS position of the controler for cases where the tracking subject is shortly coverd behind trees ect.
2) New tracking modes: "cablecam tracking" (you draw a path with some adjustable points on the map (also down and uphill) an the drone will follow that path wihile it´s tracking you or a group in the frame.
3) Fast to build up (hand or throwing start/landing)
4) Better gesture control that works also with gloves (moutainbiking, skiing ect...)
5) 360° obstacle avoidance with faster and smoother APAS
6) 4K 60fps and 1080 240fps for action sports
7) 1080p downstream for good quality video editing/posts directly form the phone.
8) A detacheable camera + gimbal to use it also as an little handheld or mounted device on the ground.

9) No 1' sensor to keep its szie ;-)
10) A little bit more stable conection (ocusync) and flytime would be good but not as important for such a drone.

Do only 6 points out of 10 and the mavic air 2 will be your best selling drone  ;-) ...even for 1000$+

Patrick

Exactly! That is what a traveling drone needs. Couldn't said better. ++1
