DJI Mavic Air 2 manual leaks, 43mph, 48MP images, more

The new DJI Mavic Air 2 drone has just leaked into ANATEL’s homologation system, Brazil’s FCC-equivalent, by a subcontractor. ANATEL has shared some photos and even a Portuguese quick start manual for DJI’s new Mavic Air 2 drone, which includes exclusive new spec details on speed, camera, and more.

The photos show exactly what the new Mavic Air 2 will look like down to the millimeter. We’ve seen shots already, but these are splayed out with better lighting and dimensions.  But what’s more interesting are the specifications that were revealed by the leaked DJI Mavic Air 2 quick start guide documentation.

The new DJI Mavic Pro 2 can reach a speed of up to 68.4 km/h [43mph] with a maximum flight time of 34 minutes, according to the documents. The LiPo battery is 3500Ah at 11.5V yielding over 40WH of capacity.  The camera can capture 48 megapixel images and 4K videos and it has obstacle sensor and intelligent flight modes. Also, the controller looks to work over 8km, which would be a huge range increase from the previous Mavic Air.

The DJI(tm) MAVICTM Air 2 features a new folding design and a fully stabilized triaxial camera that captures 4K videos and 48 megapixel photos. DJI’s unique technologies such as obstacle sensor and intelligent flight modes like ActiveTrack 3.0, Point of Interest (PoS) 3.0, QuickShot and advanced flight assistance systems 2.0 makes it easy to capture complex shots effortlessly. Mavic Air 2 achieves a maximum flying speed of 68.4 km/h and a maximum flying time* of 34 minutes.

Here are some choice screenshots from the quick start manual, which are reproduced in English below:


The DJI Mavic Air 2 had already leaked last month, first with images of the drone and what looks to be its new controller, and then with confirmation from the FCC. Both a “Mavic Air 2” and new controller have appeared on FCC’s database.

Earlier this week DJI released a video on Twitter entitled “Up Your Game,” inviting the public to see their next announcement on April 27. The event is likely going to be the launch of the DJI Mavic Air 2, which can be seen disguised in the teaser video below. Obviously we’ve seen a lot more.
