At an event today, DJI unveiled its brand-new pocket-sized drone, the Mavic Air. Folding up to about the same footprint as a big smartphone, and costing $800, it promises to be a big hit for photographers and casual drone enthusiasts.
But it also fits somewhat awkwardly into DJI's existing drone lineup. It's more expensive and has better image quality than the Spark, DJI's older pocket-sized drone, but it's also cheaper and smaller than the existing Mavic Pro. Journalists at DJI's event only had a brief opportunity to go hands-on with the new Mavic Air, but luckily for those of us stuck at home, legendary YouTuber and drone enthusiast Casey Neistat has already taken the drone to Bermuda and pitched it head-to-head against its DJI stablemates.
