DJI to announce a Mavic Air sequel soon.
DJI released a video on its social media accounts teasing an event slotted for April 27th dubbed “Up Your Game.” The event is likely the launch of the DJI Mavic Air 2, which is probably the lower half of the image in the teaser video. Why do we know this? You can thank the FCC who listed an unknown DJI controller in its database along with the Mavic Air 2, as reported by DJ Drone.
The Mavic Air series sits between the Mavic Mini and Mavic 2, with the original Mavic Air weighing 438g, so it’s likely the Mavic Air 2 will need to be registered with the FCC if you plan on operating it in the United States. The process is simple, taking roughly 5 minutes, so don’t stress. It’s best to be compliant than to deal with a fine. Registration details can be found here. If you want to bypass that altogether, consider the Mavic Mini, which falls under the 249g requirement.
