Casey Neistat DJI Mavic Air Drone Review
Here is a second opinion from the famous vlogger Casey Neistat who knows a thing or two about drones.
Would we recommend the DJI Spark Mini Drone?
Yes Rising View would recommend the DJI Mavic Air drone as with all other DJI products. Personally for us this is only a toy but still we might buy on in the future as its much more powerful than the DJI Spark but also much more portable than the DJI Phantom series. We would mainly use this as a drone to carry everywhere to capture shots on the fly or when travelling on holiday. You can purchase the DJI Mavic Air on the offical DJI site.
