DJI Mavic Air Drone
Capture all your adventures in stunning detail with the Mavic Air Fly More Combo from DJI. This foldable, pocket-portable drone was designed with travelers and outdoor enthusiasts in mind. It features a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized camera with a 1.2/3" CMOS sensor that shoots 12MP stills and is capable of capturing 4K video at 30 fps that it can transfer at speeds up to 100 Mb/s or store on its 8GB of internal storage.
In terms of performance, the Mavic Air offers multiple flight modes, can reach a top speed of up to 43 mph, and offers a max flight time of up to 21 minutes. For safety and security, the Mavic Air uses an advanced flight control system that draws on several sophisticated technologies, including Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) and Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS), to locate itself in 3D space, detect objects, and avoid collisions.
The Mavic Air works in tandem with DJI's GO 4 mobile app for accessing settings, getting a telemetry readout, viewing a low-latency video feed, as well as more advanced features, such as accessing QuickShots, ActiveTrack, and more. In addition to traditional joystick style controls, you can fly the Mavic with simple tap-based commands or using specific hand gestures.
In addition to the contents included with the standard Mavic Air, this Fly More Combo includes additional batteries, a shoulder bag, battery hub, and more.

Sporty’s Drone Study Buddy Course
Operating a drone for non-hobby operations requires a Remote Pilot Certificate. You must successfully pass a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Knowledge Exam to earn a Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rating.
Bundled with a wealth of resources, including the Small UAS Study Guide and the Remote Pilot Knowledge Test Guide, Sporty's Drone Study Buddy will prepare you for the Remote Pilot FAA written test like no other study tool available.
After reviewing the study material, you can then study the test questions with three modes of operation. Test material is expertly organized into categories based on subject matter and includes questions, answers, correct answers, and detailed explanations.
STUDY QUESTIONS BY TOPIC
Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting exactly which categories you want to study. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right. These explanations were developed by Sporty’s team of Master Instructors, based on their experience preparing for the Remote Pilot certificate.
REVIEW QUESTION FLASHCARDS
Flashcard mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to see only the question - without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way. This is a great feature that keeps you from being distracted by incorrect answers.
TAKE PRACTICE TESTS
Test mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of test questions, simulating the real Remote Pilot test. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is correct.
After completing each test your results are saved in the app's Progress Report section, where you can review previous scores and a detailed history of each question and answer selection. You can also pause a partially-completed session, and resume it at a later time here.
