    i can see many pros salivating over the air because the mavic pro was just too big to trek with. in my hobbyist case, no reason to upgrade from my spark. i don't want to deal with 4K memory premium, 4K edits and 4K storage/archive. heck, most of my video uploads are 720p because, you know, PH internet speed.

    the only occasional advantage of the 4K, for practical, amateur HD shooters, is the ability to digitally "zoom" into a 4K vid by cropping to 1080 or 720. otherwise, it's buying specs for specs' sake.

    Very enticing indeed. Problem is I just bought the DJI Spark. :(:(

    Here's the Mavic Pro's main competition, The Autel Evo.

    With the arms folded, the Mavic Air is actually smaller than the Spark. The Flame Red has a glossy finish to it. The Power button is unfortunately located at belly of the drone. Would have preferred to have it located either at the back or the front of the drone.

    @leninmac how was the Mavic Air? Is it closer to the Spark or Mavic Pro flying wise? I read gesture control is better on the Air?

    Haven't flown it yet. Just got it last Tuesday from an online seller for SGD1399. Will fly it this weekend.

    I had the unfortunate reminder of why flying drones amongst trees is a no-no...my DJI Phantom is still stuck in one of the highest branches right at our camp quarters and three months since no one has taken it down...if only our cat can retrieve it
