The Air 2S has upgraded Intelligent Flight so much that they have given the modes new names. FocusTrack mode includes Point of Interest 3.0, Spotlight 2.0, and Active Track 4.0. Hyperlapse mode has Free, Course Lock, Circle, and Waypoint included in the menu.
The Air 2S, like other DJI drones, can fly in temperatures ranging from 32 to 104° F (0 to 40° C), according to the manufacturer. In reality, this drone that provides the most value for money is capable of flying in extremely hot or cold weather, such as that experienced during a snowstorm.
Unlocking certain geofenced areas is simple thanks to the convenient online request procedure. Depending on the type of zone that you are trying to unlock, this can be done from the DJI Fly/DJI Go apps, or on DJI’s FlySafe webpage…
DroneSimPro is an easy-to-use drone simulator designed to emulate a real drone’s flight and the physics behind it. It was released in 2016, and has barely been updated since, and offers limited flight scenarios and drone models. However, it is still a good way to practice flying a drone.
Yes. Not only does the DJI Smart Controller work with the Air 2S, but the newly released successor to the Smart Controller, the DJI RC Pro, also works with the Air 2S. Using either of these controllers will offer additional functions not currently available on the standard RC-N1 Remote Control.
You can use the DJI Air 2S for mapping thanks to its 30-minutes of battery life, GPS capabilities, and high-quality camera. Also, thanks to the DJI SDK update, more mapping apps and platforms are now compatible with the Air 2S.
There are programs you can purchase when buying a new drone, programs offered by the manufacturers such as DJI’s Care Refresh or Autel’s Care. These programs, however, can be limited and only cover so much, mainly just the drone itself.
While a fixed-wing drone might not seem as agile or useful as a quadcopter, there are some tasks that can be completed faster and easier with a fixed-wing over a quadcopter, such as long-range mapping or inspections.
According to DJI, the Air 2S can fly a maximum distance of 7.5 miles (12 km) and a maximum height of 3.1 miles (5 km). Those are actually pretty impressive numbers considering how small and light the Air 2S is.
The DJI Air 2S has an intelligent follow-me feature called Active Track 4.0. This follow-me mode is part of DJI’s FocusTrack mode and allows the drone to follow moving subjects such as vehicles, people, or pets.
