DJI Mavic Series Comparison – April 2021 Update

December 13, 2020 / Drones News

Updated April 2021 with the release of the Air 2s.


The DJI Mavic series has taken the top position from the Phantom series for the most common drone in the world. With a range of always updating models, it is hard to stay on top of the latest models. The above image is as it stands in April 2021.

What is the difference?

To put it simply, the more you spend, the bigger the machine and the better the image quality and features. While there are a number of small intricacies between each model these are the basics.

The April 2021 release of the Mavic Air 2s has made it the best value for money as the latest release has essentially put it on par with the more expensive Mavic 2 Pro. If you are looking to purchase a model today SkyStock’s recommendation is the Mavic Air 2S.

What’s next?

With the Air and Mini series seeing updates in the last year, the next best guess is that we will see an update with a Mavic 3 Pro in 2021. With rumours of a mechanical shutter, lidar scanner and interchangeable lens, it will be interesting to see what DJI releases. Watch this space!

Anything else?

Yes, we can be a bit one sided with our love for DJI equipment. We have found DJI to continually produce the best products time after time. We are always excited about new manufacturers entering the industry and am very much looking forward to Sony’s drone in 2021. We are also hearing good things about the Autel Evo 2, however we are yet to get out hands onto one.
