DJI Air 2S vs Mavic 2 Pro: which should you choose?

The DJI Air 2S addresses one of the most common feature requests from drone users: a 1″-type sensor camera in a consumer-oriented model. Until recently, DJI users either had to make do with smaller sensors, similar to those found in smartphones, or spend more than $1500 for one of DJI’s more expensive prosumer models, such as the Mavic 2 Pro or Phantom 4 Pro.

The Air 2S changes that equation, arriving at a price point of $1000. As the newest model in the lineup, it benefits from the latest DJI features and technologies, many of which are covered in our DJI Air 2S review.

But sensor size isn’t everything. How does the Air 2S compare to DJI’s other foldable drone with a 1″-type sensor, the Mavic 2 Pro? Let’s take a look as there are still some important differences between the two models.
