DJI’s next drone has just been leaked. Images of what look like the next DJI Mavic have been posted online. Initial analysis of the leaked images of this drone point towards either the Mavic Air 2 or a Mavic 3.
DJI Mavic Air 2 leaked! Or is it a Mavic 3?
Initial Rumors went straight to this newly leaked DJI drone being a Mavic Air 2. We’re not 100% sold on that. Stay tuned to find out why. The existing DJI Mavic Air is just over 2 years old now. It has received criticism from many in the industry. Perhaps it’s time to replace it for good. The design will see a drastic change from the current Mavic Air. One design which as worked very well is the design of the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. In the leaked images of the yet to be released DJI Mavic Air 2 we see a design language that is very similar to the Mavic 2 line. We are very happy to see these changes.
