It’s been a whole entire day since the Mavic Air was unveiled & the internet hasn’t put together a specs comparison of DJI’s newest drone with their other lower-end models. To make things worse, the DJI website doesn’t use consistent units.

TL;DR: If you want 4K video & don’t mind the shorter range & somewhat shorter flight time, get the Mavic Air. Otherwise get the Mavic Pro. Get the Spark if you don’t have loads of money.

So I’ve compiled & converted all that for you. Here goes:

 DRONE STATS Spark Mavic Air Mavic Pro
Flight time 16 mins 21 mins 27 mins
Range 1.2 mi (2 km) 2.5 mi (4 km) 4.3 mi (7 km)
Top Speed  31 mph (50 kph) 42 mph (68 kph) 40 mph (65 kph)
Ascent 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s) 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s) 16.4 ft/s (5 m/s)
Descent 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s) 6.6 ft/s (2 m/s) 9.8 ft/s (3 m/s)

Notes: “Range” is the transmitter range, not total theoretical travel distance. Top speeds are in sport mode. Some stats were rounded to whole numbers because as you learn in school, sometimes decimals are ridiculous.
