The session's focus was the DJI Fly application, which is used by the Mavic Mini and the Mavic Air 2. 
Our hosts for the night were Cameron and Thomas, both highly knowledgeable product specialists.

Sample Questions from the Q&A Section

  1. Is the Landing Pad worth it and does it come with pegs?

    Yes the Landing pad is worth it as it protects the bottom of your drone from any debris, dirt, sand from getting inside the drone or scratching the bottom of the drone. It can also act as a way to "catch" your drone during landing if you hold it up. Furthermore, it does come with pegs so you can peg it into the ground to ensure the pad does not flight away. 

  2. What Drones do you two (hosts) fly?

    Cameron flies the Mavic 2 Pro
    Thomas flies the Mavic 2 Zoom

  3. Does the Mavic Air 2 use the downward visual sensor to help land? 

    Yes, the Mavic Air 2 uses the downward visual sensor to help land, it captures an image as it takes off to help record its home. If there is a landing pad or something contrasting, this really helps the accuracy when it lands. 

  4. When is the right time to use the auxiliary light on the Mavic Air 2? 

    The Mavic Air 2 will use the light automatically when it deems there is not enough light to help the sensors land. 

  5. What Mavic Mini and Mavic Air 2 Accessories do you recommend? 

    We will be running an accessories showcase in the coming weeks where we will go through all the accessories you can get with the drone. 

  6. What is your Favourite DJI Drone?

    Inspire 2 and Mavic Air 2

  7. Whats your opinion on ND Filters?

    Definitely needed to do high quality video work. It is important to get a high quality ND filter otherwise the image quality will drop and may experience chromatic aberrations.
