DJI Mavic Air vs. Mavic Pro vs. Spark: Which is right for you? – CNET

At this point, DJI is only trying to outdo itself. 

The leader in camera drones announced the Mavic Air on Jan. 23, a $799 foldable quadcopter with a 4K-resolution camera that slots nicely into its lineup between the $399 entry-level Spark and $999 Mavic Pro (see table below for UK and Australian prices). The Air is sort of a mashup of the Spark and Pro, but also has new features that you won’t find on these older models.

That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best option for you, however. Regardless of price, not everyone interested in getting a drone is going to need the Air’s feature set. Likewise, you might want more than the Air offers. To that end, I’ve broken down the major differences, pros and cons between the three models and why you might go with one over the others.
