Half the size of mavic pro with similar camera abilities. Downside is shorter flight time of 21 mins vs 27mins....and range of 4km vs 8km...I'm on the fence on this one..love the size but my mavic pro has a more powerful range ergo communications is more solid in dodgy conditions....

It's a priority shipping code, not a referral code or points.

pretty much mavic pro features in smaller spark format. I like the size of the mavic pro, remember that smaller drones are worse in windy conditions. dji also released an upgraded mavic pro platinum and thats where its at!

Def NOT the same as the Mavic Pro
Mavic Air 4K at a much higher bit rate (100 vs 60 for Mavic Pro)
2.7K @ 60P (shoot slowmo and it will scale nicely to 4K)
120 fps in 1080
Those specs and the even smaller form factor make it an upgrade to me.

Now before everyone starts complaining about the distance differences, 99% of people who will buy this drone will not fly it more than a mile away.

What's a priority shipping code? I'm not hating, just legitimately wanting to know

Facepalm

The drone doesn't delivered itself to your house.

The priority shipping code will invalidate any cashback, just a warning... So probably not worth it = TOP CB has 5% back...

I was looking at the specs but didn't see any mention of OcuSync. Do you happen to know if the Mavic Air has it? Or is it just using WiFi like the Spark?

uses wifi not ocusync. probably one of the only downsides.. aside from the remote not having a display.. and battery life being 9 minutes less.

That's a huge bummer. I could've lived with the shorter battery life and the lack of the display on the controller. But not sure if I'm sold without it having OcuSync. The range of the Spark is definitely lacking compared to DJI's other offerings. Hoping they come out with a Mavic Pro 2 soon, as I was looking into purchasing my drone before March. Thanks for your response.
