Mavic Air


A marvel of engineering and design, the Mavic Air was built to go wherever adventure takes you. Inheriting the best of the Mavic series, this ultra-portable and foldable drone features high-end flight performance and functionality for limitless exploration.

Super Compact

Size of a Smart Phone : Dramatically reduced form factor.

As tall and wide as a smartphone when folded, the Mavic Air is an ultra-portable drone that stretches the boundaries of what’s possible for a device its size. To do this, we had to re-imagine the most efficient design possible. 

 Side by side comparison with Mavic pro. The volume is reduced by 50%.

Exterior Design


Expressing geometric precision, the Mavic Air’s arms fold flush against its aerodynamic chassis. Magnesium alloy brackets reinforce the seven onboard cameras, rear vents dissipate heat efficiently, and the primary gimbal camera is recessed for better protection.

Designed and Assembled in Shenzhen

Designers worked closely with engineers from initial sketches through to prototyping and engineering to ensure the highest quality and craftsmanship in mind.

The Mavic Air is the most portable DJI drone to house a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, with its angular vibration range reduced to 0.005°. Set in a triangular formation, gimbal dampeners help create even steadier shots.
