FlightAutonomy 2.0: Using advanced VIO technology, the powerful sensor
system in FlightAutonomy 2.0 consists of a primary gimbal camera, forward,
backward, and downward dual-vision sensors, downward infrared sensing system,
IMU redundancies, and a group of computing cores. Together, they collect and
transmit information from the surrounding environment to the high-performance
processor for more precise hovering and better flight performance. Advanced
Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) allow the aircraft to bypass obstacles in front
of and behind it actively.
- Visual Interntial Odometry (VIO): A combination of VIO technology
and the new positioning algorithm has doubled the Mavic Air's precision
positioning. VIO technology calculates the speed and attitude of the
aircraft in real-time and locates it, making dual-camera attitude
measurements while hovering or flying at any speed. The working range of the
vision positioning system is now 0.5 to 30 meters. With VIO technology, the
Mavic Air hovers more precisely indoors and responds better to complex
environments with finer control stick movement.
- 3D Map Building: Equipped with an advanced sensing system, the
Mavic Air locates itself with accuracy and precision. By processing data
from the seven cameras at the front, bottom, and rear of the body, alongside
the advanced infrared sensors and IMU, the Mavic Air will construct a 3D map
by sensing the environment in real time, which significantly improves
overall flight safety.
- Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS): APAS is the result of
DJI's extensive research on flight path calculation. Users can keep flying
forwards and backwards, and APAS will plan an appropriate flight path to
bypass obstacles automatically.
- Multiple Redundancies: Besides dual IMUs, FlightAutonomy 2.0 has
more redundant modules to increase the Mavic Air's safety level. The Vision
Compass will assist the navigation system to estimate flight direction when
the compass experiences interference. When only one direction of the front,
bottom, or rear vision systems is functioning normally, the aircraft will
still position itself successfully. There are two sets of sensor fusion
algorithms based on two independent hardware platforms. When an error occurs
to one set of algorithms, the aircraft will switch to the other pair
seamlessly to resume normal functionality.
Flight Modes: The DJI Mavic Air is equipped with 3 flight modes.
- P-Mode (Positioning): This mode works best when the GPS signal is
strong. The aircraft utilizes GPS and the Vision Systems to locate itself,
stabilize, and navigate between obstacles. Intelligent Flight Modes such as
SmartCapture, QuickShots, TapFly, and ActiveTrack are enabled in this mode.
It can reach a maximum speed of 17.9 mph in P-mode.
- S-Mode (Sport): In this mode the aircraft uses GPS only for
positioning, while the Forward and Backward Vision Systems are disabled. As
such, the aircraft is not able to sense and avoid obstacles and Intelligent
Flight Modes are not available. In S-mode aircraft responses are optimizes
for agility and speed making it more responsive to the remote controller's
joystick movements. It can reach a maximum speed of 42.5 mph in S-mode.
- ATTI-Mode (Altitude): The aircraft automatically changes to this
mode when the Vision Systems are unavailable or disabled and either the GPS
signal is weak or the compass is experiencing interference. When the Vision
Systems are unavailable the aircraft is not able to position itself or
auto-brake, so potential flight hazards exist when flying in this mode.
Environmental factors such as wind can result in horizontal shifting, which
may present hazards - especially when flying in confined spaces.
Intelligent Flight Modes: The DJI Mavic Air incorporates a variety of
intelligent & intuitive flight modes making it easier to capture video and still
- Active Track: ActiveTrack can sense up to 16 selectable subjects
simultaneously, letting you choose the right tracking subject. With higher
tracking precision and broader scenario applications, ActiveTrack follows
targets even when they're running, jumping, or cycling. You can choose from
3 different Active Track modes - Trace (follows behind or in front of your
subject, or circle it as it moves at a constant distance), Profile (flies
alongside your subject at a constant angle and distance), and Spotlight
(keeps the camera pointed on your subject while you fly almost anywhere).
- Quick Shots: Choose from six different QuickShots - Dronie (flies
backward and upward with the camera locked on the subject while capturing
video), Rocket (ascends with the camera pointing downward while capturing
Circle (circles around the subject while capturing video), Helix (flies
upward and spirals around the subject while capturing video), Asteroid
(flies backward and upward while capturing video), and Boomerang (flies
around the subject while capturing video). All are just a tap away and will
get you those epic selfie drone videos without needing to think about
composing your shot.
- SmartCapture: Fun, simple, and intuitive, SmartCapture offers a
new and interactive way of controlling the Mavic Air by hand. Launch and
control the drone with hand gestures, then take photos or videos however you
like. The control range of SmartCapture is approximately 8.2-19.68'
- TapFly: If you want to focus on just your shot, select TapFly in
the DJI GO 4 app, which lets you fly wherever you tap on your smartphone's
screen. TapFly works in Forward, Backward, Free, and Coordinate modes, and
you can adjust flight speed to suit all your aerial needs.
- Tripod: Tripod Mode limits the DJI Mavic Air's maximum
speed to just 2.2mph, and the control stick sensitivity of the remote
controller is slowed to give you the precision you need for accurate
framing. It is also great for flying indoors in small spaces where the Mavic
Pro's normal speed may make it more challenging to fly.
- Cinematic: In Cinematic mode, the aircraft's braking distance is
extended and its rotation speed is reduced. The aircraft will slow down
gently until it stops, keeping footage smooth and stable even if control
inputs are choppy.
- Point-Of-Interest (POI): Select a subject on the DJI Go 4 app,
and set the circle radius, flight altitude, and flight speed, and the Mavic
Air will fly around t he subject according to these settings.
Return To Home (RTH): Expanding on existing RTH systems, the
Mavic Air will ensure the safest flight path during RTH. It does this by
recording its real-time flight path, and when the control signal gets lost
or battery is low,
the aircraft will fly towards the Home Point, bypassing any signal
obstruction and reconnect to the controller. When the Mavic Air detects an
obstacle, it will choose a proper path to bypass it according to its
altitude. The aircraft will match the images of the ground with those
captured at takeoff for increased landing accuracy. When landing
automatically, the Mavic Air will scan the terrain of the landing area in
real-time, then warn the user and safely hover if it detects an obstacle or
water in the landing area.
Flight Recorder: Flight data is automatically recorded to
the internal storage of the aircraft. This includes flight telemetry, aircraft
status information, and other parameters. To access this data, connect the
aircraft to your computer through it microUSB port and the included microUSB-to-USB
