Available in February 2018, if you’re interested in this amazing drone you can secure yours at or in store, and as with any new release product, this item is supported by our pre-order guarantee.



Folding to the size of a book and weighing under half a kilogram, whilst still offering more than 20 minutes shooting at up to 4km this drone has truly been engineered with mobility in mind.

The Mavic Air doesn’t compromise professional level credibility in its photographic features however, housing a powerful camera with a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor and a 24mm F2.8 equivalent lens. The ability to capture RAW, shoot beautiful, slow motion images, 4k Video footage and exquisite panoramic images will impress even the most discerning photo enthusiast.

It has a 3-axis gimbal for super smooth 4K video, new HDR algorithms for improved 12-megapixel stills, and a host of autonomous modes that make shooting great-looking footage a snap. The Boomerang QuickShot mode where the drone shoots an elliptical loop around the shooter offers a truly veneered, professional output and is sure to be a favourite,

Gesture controls empower your immersion in the technology and any flight is a deeply personal and memorable, connected experience where the drone literally becomes and extension of your body.

With vastly improved range and obstacle avoidance the limitations of this drone are more in the imagination of the user than the device. The Mavic Air elegantly navigates its way around obstacles, planning a new flight path, literally on the fly.

Available in white, black, and red.
