The new DJI Air 2S is the first drone of its size to capture 20-megapixel still images or video in 5.4K with a new one-inch sensor that was previously available only on larger, less agile drones. It features automatic flight path planning to set the drone’s course while recording video and includes four-way directional obstacle sensors to warn when obstacles are getting close, letting the pilot focus on the shot. With a maximum flight time of 31 minutes, the DJI Air 2S’s  APAS 4.0 autopilot system seamlessly tracks around objects while O3, DJI’s third iteration of OcuSync, brings the most reliable transmission technology in the drone market to this portable, foldable drone so users know their connection is stable. The upgraded FocusTrack mode includes a suite of programmed modes like Spotlight 2.0, ActiveTrack 4.0 and Point of Interest 3.0 that easily mimic the focus, control and movement of a professional video operator.

DJI Air 2S is available for purchase today from store.dji.com and from authorised retail partners in several configurations. The standard combo retails for AU$1,699 and includes the drone, remote controller, one battery and all the cables and parts needed to get into the air. The Fly More Combo retails for AU$2,099 and includes everything from the standard combo with the addition of 2 batteries for a total of 3, ND filters, a charging hub and a shoulder bag.
