Imagine having a drone so compact that it is almost the same size of your smartphone after folding it up, yet powerful and coming with a superior camera for high-quality 12 megapixel photographs and 4k video. That includes 32 megapixel panoramic images, among others. The Mavic Air compact drone features quite a wallop. Check the specs and features below.

Some Features Of Mavic Air Drone

Mavic Air Drone can stably fly in windy conditions of up to 36 km per hour and as high as 5 km above sea level. The drone can move 4 kilometers far from you before losing signal and has maximum speed of 68 kilometers per hour.

However, one of the major issues attached to drones is battery life which in turn affects the flight time. Mavic Air can stay in the air for up to 21 minutes, which is quite a feat, considering there are many compact drones that run out of power in 10 minutes.
