DJI Air 2S Which Combo Is Better?

What are the benefits of the DJI Air 2S Fly More Combo? 

The DJI Fly More Combo is a fantastic way to get more bang for you buck and get the essential accessories you need to effectively fly more with your drone. 

DJI Mavic Air 2 Battery

You can never have too many batteries when it comes to drone ownership. The last thing you want to happen is to run out of power when you have the most beautiful sunset happening at the right location. Having more than 1 battery is a must especially if you often go on day trips, road trips or even just practising and learning how to fly. These batteries are all intelligent and provide up to 31 minutes of flight time for the DJI Air 2S (they are compatible with both Mavic Air 2 Drones). Each battery is also intelligent in the way there is a chip that determines how fast the battery is draining and also will self-discharge after a set period of time. There is nothing worse than letting the batteries sit in one spot, unused at full capacity. This typically leads to bloating and damaged batteries. Getting the combo with 3 batteries is the perfect start. 

DJI Air 2S Low-Noise Propellers 

Having spare propellers is a necessity especially as you will need to replace them after they crack or snap. It is also recommended to swap the propellers when the blades are getting older than 6 months as they will start to fatigue and start to become brittle, especially if they have been exposed to the elements, therefore it is fantastic to have extra spare of propellers on hand, ready to swap. 

DJI Air 2S ND Filter Set (ND4/8/16/32)

The DJI Air 2S ND 4 filter set is perfect for videoing where the the filters will block the amount of light that enters the sensor, making your videos and photos appear clearer and well exposed. This is especially helpful for those instances where you want to follow the 180 shutter rule. Furthermore, these ND filters are all within the usable range, meaning you won't need to go purchase additional filters or filters from a third part like the Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo. 

DJI Mavic Air 2 Charging Hub 

Save time with the DJI Mavic Air 2 charging hub where you can easily charge up to 3 batteries sequentially, meaning you will not need to swap over the batteries after it has finished charging. This is incredibly useful when needing to charge on the go or whilst shooting as you can sit the batteries on the hub and let it charge. 

DJI Mavic Air 2 Battery to Power Bank Adapter

The DJI Mavic Air 2 battery to power bank adapter is designed to power and charge different devices through the connector and essentially turns the Mavic Air 2 Intelligent Flight Battery into a power bank. This allows for emergency top-ups of your phone or controller if they are running low where you sacrifice a battery to charge them up. Furthermore, they fast charging which is perfect if your device supports fast charging! 

DJI Mavic Air 2 Shoulder Carry Bag 

The DJI Air 2S unit does not come with a method to carry the drone and accessories, therefore you will need to purchase either a safety case or a carrying bag with the DJI Air 2S to ensure its safety and protection when transporting. Furthermore, the Mavic Air 2 shoulder bag is on the expensive side with a case costing even more. Therefore it recommended to purchase the fly more combo to get the included bag. 

DJI Air 2S Combo Which Is Better?

What are the benefits of the DJI Air 2S Pro Combo? 

The DJI Air 2S Pro Combo is a perfect way to get even more out of your drone with the additional accessories. 

GPC Mavic Air 2 Safety Carrying Case 

This safety carrying case is perfect to carrying the fly more combo, (tighter squeeze with the ND Filter Set). The GPC Mavic Air 2 safety carrying case is Waterpoof, Dustproof and Shockproof, making it the perfect accessory to get when travelling and adventuring. These cases have a very high build quality and are endorsed by the industry with most organisations opting for the GPC cases over other brands such as PGYTECH and even DJI. 

DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller Hood 

When flying your DJI drone in sunlight, the glare and reflection from the sun can cause difficulty in seeing the phone and can be a danger as the pilot will not be able to correctly see what is going on. This remote controller hood plugs on top of the antenna which allows you to block out the sunlight and help reduce the damage. 

Samsung 128GB SD Card 

The Samsung 128GB SD card is a must have addition for the drone as it allows you to record all your photos and videos in high quality instead of cache only. These cards can handle the 5.4K video resolution without problem and are know to be a workhouse in the industry. Having additional SD cards kept tucked away in the shoulder bag or case are always recommended as they are often left at home or still plugged into the computer. 

PGYTECH Landing Gear Extensions Mavic Air 2 

The Landing gear extensions are a great way to ensure the bottom sensors are not damaged by the ground during take off or landing. This is perfect for gravel, sand or dusty environments and means you don't need to lug a landing pad around (they are significantly larger and heavier to carry). The flight performance is not dramatically affected by the landing gear extensions.
