Controversial title there isn’t it? Well that’s exactly the question I have struggled with since the announcement of the DJI Mavic Air. Which one should I get the DJI Mavic Pro, or the DJI Mavic Air. The DJI Spark was truthfully never even in the equation.
I should point out straight away I am a drone novice. A first time flyer, with no experience whatsoever. I didn’t know what to expect, whether I would even enjoy flying a drone, or whether I even actually needed one. To be honest I didn’t ‘need’ one, but I had wanted one for quite some time. I was constantly checking out the Phantom series, but I really wanted it to take it whilst out and about on the bike, so the Phantom didn’t really cut it. The anouncement of the Air then made me think this is the one, easy to transport in the top box of the bike, quick to set up, quick to get in the air and user friendly settings for the camera – which is quite nicely spec’d to boot – surely this is the winner.
Then I started doing my research – a lot of research.
