An internet connection is required for activation. © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. 9 Aircraft This section introduces the flight controller, Forward, Backward and Downward Vision Systems, and the Intelligent Flight Battery. 10 © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. Aircraft Mavic Air 2 contains a flight controller, video downlink system, vision systems, infrared sensing system, propulsion system, and an Intelligent Flight Battery. Flight Modes Mavic Air 2 has three flight modes, plus a fourth flight mode that the aircraft switches to in certain scenarios. Flight modes can be switched via the Flight Mode switch on the remote controller. Normal Mode: The aircraft utilizes GPS and the Forward, Backward, and Downward Vision Systems and Infrared Sensing System to locate itself and stabilize. When the GPS signal is strong, the aircraft uses GPS to locate itself and stabilize. When the GPS is weak and the lighting conditions are sufficient, the aircraft uses vision systems to locate itself and stabilize. When the Forward, Backward, and Downward Vision Systems are enabled and lighting conditions are sufficient, the maximum flight tilt angle is 20° and the maximum flight speed is 12 m/s. Sport Mode: In Sport Mode, the aircraft uses GPS for positioning and the aircraft responses are optimized for agility and speed making it more responsive to control stick movements. The maximum flight speed is 19 m/s. Obstacle sensing is disabled in Sport mode. Tripod Mode: Tripod mode is based on Normal mode and the flight speed is limited, making the aircraft more stable during shooting. The aircraft automatically changes to Attitude (ATTI) mode when the Vision Systems are unavailable or disabled and when the GPS signal is weak or the compass experiences interference. In ATTI mode, the aircraft may be more easily affected by its surroundings. Environmental factors such as wind can result in horizontal shifting, which may present hazards, especially when flying in confined spaces. The Forward and Backward Vision Systems are disabled in Sport mode, which means the aircraft cannot sense obstacles on its route automatically. The maximum speed and braking distance of the aircraft significantly increase in Sport mode. A minimum braking distance of 30 m is required in windless conditions. Descent speed significantly increases in Sport mode. A minimum braking distance of 10 m is required in windless conditions. The aircraft’s responsiveness significantly increases in Sport mode, which means a small control stick movement on the remote controller translates into the aircraft moving a large distance. Make sure to maintain adequate maneuvering space during flight. Aircraft Status Indicators Mavic Air 2 has front LEDs and aircraft status indicators. Front LED
Front LED Aircraft Status Indicator Aircraft Status Indicator © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. 11
Mavic Air 2 User Manual The front LEDs show the orientation of the aircraft and glow solid red when the aircraft is turned on to indicate the front of the aircraft. The aircraft status indicators communicate the status of the aircraft’s flight control system. Refer to the table below for more information about the aircraft status indicators. Aircraft Status Indicator States Color Action Aircraft Status Normal States Alternating green, and red, yellow Blinks Turning on and performing self-diagnostic tests Yellow Blinks four times Warming up Green Blinks slowly With GPS Green Periodically blinks twice With Forward and Downward Vision Systems Yellow Blinks slowly No GPS, Forward Vision System or Downward Vision System Green Blinks quickly Braking Warning States Yellow Blinks quickly Remote controller signal lost Red Blinks slowly Low battery Red Blinks quickly Critically low battery Red Blinks IMU error Red Solid Critical error Alternating yellow red and Blinks quickly Compass calibration required Return to Home The Return to Home (RTH) function brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point when the GPS is signal is strong. There are three types of RTH: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. This section describes these three types of RTH in detail. If the video link signal is lost during flight while the remote controller is still able to control the movements of the aircraft, there will be a prompt to initiate RTH. RTH can be cancelled. GPS Description Home Point 12 © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. The default Home point is the first location where the aircraft received strong GPS signals (the white GPS icon has at least four bars). The aircraft status indicator blinks green quickly after the home point has been recorded.
Mavic Air 2 User Manual Smart RTH If the GPS signal is sufficient, Smart RTH can be used to bring the aircraft back to the Home Point. Smart RTH is initiated either by tapping in DJI Fly or by pressing and holding the RTH button on the remote controller until it beeps. Exit Smart RTH by tapping in DJI Fly or by pressing the RTH button on the remote controller. Smart RTH includes Straight Line RTH and Power Saving RTH (Return to Home and Land). Straight Line RTH Procedure: 1. The Home Point is recorded. 2. Smart RTH is triggered. 3. a. If the aircraft is further than 20 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins, the aircraft adjusts its orientation and ascends to the preset RTH altitude and flies to the Home Point. If the current altitude is higher than the RTH altitude, the aircraft flies to the Home Point at the current altitude. b. If the aircraft is at a distance of 5 m to 20 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins, the aircraft adjusts its orientation and flies to the Home Point at the current altitude. c. If the aircraft is less than 5 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins, it lands immediately. 4. After reaching the Home Point, the aircraft lands and the motors stop. If the RTH is triggered through DJI Fly and the aircraft is further than 5 m from the Home Point, a prompt will appear in the app for users to select a landing option. Power Saving RTH (Return to Home and Land) Procedure: During Straight Line RTH, if the distance is farther than 400 m and the altitude is more than 90 m higher than the RTH altitude as well as more than 290 m higher than the home point, a prompt appears in DJI Fly asking the user if they wish to enter Return to Home and Land in order to save power. After selecting Return to Home and Land, the aircraft calculates the best angle (16.7° horizontally) and flies to the home point. When the aircraft reaches 200 m above the home point or RTH altitude, it lands and the motors stop. The aircraft exits from Return to Home and Land and enter Straight Line RTH in the following scenarios: 1. if the pitch stick is pulled backward. 2. if the remote controller signal is lost. 3. if the Vision Systems become unavailable. Area of where Power Saving RTH is triggered Aircraft triggers Power Saving RTH Descent of aircraft in Power Saving RTH © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. 13 Mavic Air 2 User Manual Low Battery RTH Low Battery RTH is triggered when the Intelligent Flight Battery is depleted to the point that the safe return of the aircraft may be affected. Return home or land the aircraft immediately when prompted. DJI Fly displays a warning when the battery level is low. The aircraft will automatically return to the Home Point if no action is taken after a 10 second countdown. The user can cancel RTH by pressing the RTH button or Flight Pause button on the remote controller. If RTH is cancelled following a low battery level warning, the Intelligent Flight Battery may not have enough power for the aircraft to land safely, which may lead to the aircraft crashing or being lost. The aircraft will land automatically if the current battery level can only support the aircraft long enough to descend from its current altitude. Auto landing cannot be canceled but the remote controller can be used to alter the direction of the aircraft during the landing process. Failsafe RTH If the Home Point was successfully recorded and the compass is functioning normally, Failsafe RTH automatically activates after the remote controller signal is lost for more than 11 seconds. The aircraft will fly backwards for 50 m on its original flight route, and then enter Straight Line RTH. The aircraft enters Straight Line RTH if the remote controller signal is restored during Failsafe RTH. After flying for 50 m: 1. If the aircraft is less than 20 m from the Home Point, it flies back to the Home Point at the current altitude. 2. If the aircraft is further than 20 m from the Home Point and the current altitude is higher than the preset RTH altitude, it flies back to the Home Point at the current altitude. 3. If the aircraft is further than 20 m from the Home Point and the current altitude is lower than the preset RTH altitude, it ascends to the preset RTH altitude and then flies back to the Home Point. Obstacle Avoidance During RTH When aircraft is ascending: 1. The aircraft brakes when an obstacle is sensed from in front and flies backward until a safe distance is reached before continuing to ascend. 2. The aircraft brakes when an obstacle is sensed from behind and flies forward until a safe distance is reached before continuing to ascend. 3. No operation will occur when an obstacle is sensed below the aircraft. When aircraft is flying forward: 1. The aircraft brakes when an obstacle is sensed from in front and files backward to a safe distance. It ascends until no obstacle is sensed and continues to ascend another 5 m and then continues to fly forward. 2. No operation will occur when an obstacle is sensed from behind. 3. The aircraft brakes when an obstacle is sensed from below and ascends until no obstacle is sensed before flying forward. During RTH, obstacles on either side of and above the aircraft cannot be detected or avoided. When ascending in RTH, the aircraft cannot be controlled except when moving the control sticks to accelerate or decelerate. The aircraft cannot return to the Home Point if the GPS signal is weak or unavailable. If the GPS signal becomes weak or unavailable after RTH is triggered, the aircraft will hover in place for a while before landing. 14 © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. Mavic Air 2 User Manual It is important to set a suitable RTH altitude before each flight. Launch DJI Fly, and set the RTH altitude. The minimum RTH altitude is 2 m. The aircraft cannot avoid obstacles during Failsafe RTH if the Forward and Backward Vision Systems are unavailable. During RTH, the speed and altitude of the aircraft can be controlled using the remote controller or DJI Fly if the remote controller signal is normal. The orientation of the aircraft and the direction of flight, however, cannot be controlled. The aircraft cannot avoid obstacles if users push the pitch stick to accelerate and exceed a flight speed of 12 m/s. If the aircraft flies into a GEO zone during RTH it will either descend until it exits the GEO zone and continue to the Home Point or it will hover in place. The aircraft may not be able to return to a Home Point when the wind speed is too high. Fly with caution. Landing Protection Landing Protection will activate during Smart RTH. 1. During Landing Protection, the aircraft will automatically detect and carefully land on suitable ground. 2. If the ground is determined unsuitable for landing, Mavic Air 2 will hover and wait for pilot confirmation. 3. If Landing Protection is not operational, DJI Fly will display a landing prompt when the aircraft descends below 0.5 m. Pull down on the throttle stick or use the auto landing slider to land. Landing Protection activates during Low Battery RTH and Failsafe RTH. The aircraft performs as follows: During Low Battery RTH and Failsafe RTH, the aircraft hovers at 2 m above the ground and waits for the pilot to confirm it is suitable to land. Pull down on the throttle for one second or use the auto landing slider in the app to land. Landing Protection activates and the aircraft performs the steps listed above. Vision Systems are disabled during landing. Make sure to land the aircraft with caution. Precision Landing The aircraft automatically scans and attempts to match the terrain features below during RTH. When the current terrain matches the Home Point terrain, the aircraft will land. A prompt will appear in DJI Fly if the terrain match fails. Landing Protection is activated during Precision Landing. The Precision Landing performance is subject to the following conditions: a. The Home Point must be recorded upon takeoff and must not be changed during flight. Otherwise, the aircraft will have no record of the Home Point terrain features. b. During takeoff, the aircraft must ascend vertically 7 m before moving horizontally. c. The Home Point terrain features must remain largely unchanged. d. The Home Point terrain features must be sufficiently distinctive. e. The lighting conditions must not be too light or too dark. The following actions are available during Precision Landing: a. Press the throttle stick down to accelerate landing. b. Move the control sticks in any direction to stop Precision Landing. The aircraft will descend vertically after the control sticks are released. © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. 15 Mavic Air 2 User Manual Vision Systems and Infrared Sensing System Mavic Air 2 is equipped with both an Infrared Sensing System and Forward, Backward, and Downward Vision Systems. The Forward, Backward, and Downward Vision Systems consist of two cameras each and the Infrared Sensing System consists of two 3D infrared modules. The Downward Vision System and Infrared Sensing System helps the aircraft maintain its current position, hover in place more precisely, and to fly indoors or in other environments where GPS is unavailable. In addition, the Auxiliary Bottom Light located on the underside of the aircraft improves visibility for the Downward Vision System in weak light conditions.

Align the boxes. © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. 17 3 Pan and tilt the aircraft. Using the Vision Systems When GPS is unavailable, the Downward Vision System is enabled if the surface has a clear texture and sufficient light. The Downward Vision System works best when the aircraft is at an altitude of 0.5 to 30 m. If the altitude of the aircraft is above 30 m, the Vision System may be affected, so extra caution is required. Follow the steps below to use the Downward Vision System: 1. Make sure the aircraft is in Normal or Tripod mode. Power on the aircraft. 2. The aircraft hovers in place after takeoff. The aircraft status indicator blinks green twice, which indicates the Downward Vision System is working. If the aircraft is in Normal or Tripod mode and Obstacle Detection is enabled in DJI Fly, the Forward and Backward Vision Systems will activate automatically when the aircraft is powered on. Using the Forward and Backward Vision Systems, the aircraft can actively brake when detecting obstacles. The Forward and Backward Vision Systems work best with adequate lighting and clearly marked or textured obstacles. The Vision Systems cannot work properly over surfaces that do not have clear pattern variations. The Vision Systems cannot work properly in any of the following situations. Operate the aircraft cautiously. a. Flying over monochrome surfaces (e.g., pure black, pure white, pure green). b. Flying over highly reflective surfaces. c. Flying over water or transparent surfaces. d. Flying over moving surfaces or objects. e. Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically. f. Flying over extremely dark (< 10 lux) or bright (> 40,000 lux) surfaces. g. Flying over surfaces that strongly reflect or absorb infrared waves (e.g., mirrors). h. Flying over surfaces without clear patterns or texture. (e.g., power pole). Mavic Air 2 User Manual i. Flying over surfaces with repeating identical patterns or textures (e.g., tiles with the same design). J. Flying over obstacles with small surface areas (e.g., tree branches). Keep the sensors clean at all times. DO NOT tamper with the sensors. DO NOT use the aircraft in dusty or humid environments. If the aircraft experiences a collision, camera calibration is required. Calibrate the cameras if DJI Fly prompts you to do so. DO NOT fly on days that are rainy, smoggy, or if there is no clear sight. Check the following before each takeoff: a. Make sure there are no stickers or any other obstructions over the Infrared Sensing and Vision Systems. b. If there is any dirt, dust, or water on the Infrared Sensing and Vision Systems, clean it with a soft cloth. Do not use any cleanser that contains alcohol. c. Contact DJI Support if there is any damage to the glass of the Infrared Sensing and Vision Systems. DO NOT obstruct the Infrared Sensing System.

It is recommended to select a static subject (e.g., high-rise buildings, mountainous terrain) at a safe distance from the aircraft (further than 15 m). Do not select a subject that is too near the aircraft. 22 © 2020 DJI All Rights Reserved. Mavic Air 2 User Manual The aircraft brakes and hovers in place if an obstacle is detected during Hyperlapse. The aircraft only generates a video if it has taken at least 25 photos, which is the amount required to generate a one second video. The video generates when a command is given from the remote controller or if the mode is exited unexpectedly (such as when Low Battery RTH is triggered). Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems 3.0 The Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems 3.0 (APAS 3.0) feature is available in Normal mode. When APAS is enabled, the aircraft continues to respond to user commands and plans its path according to both control stick inputs and the flight environment. APAS makes it easier to avoid obstacles, obtain smoother footage, and gives a better flying experience. Keep moving the pitch stick forward or backward. The aircraft will avoid the obstacles by flying above, below, or to the left or right of the obstacle. The aircraft will also respond to other control sticks movements simultaneously. When APAS is enabled, the aircraft can be brought to a stop by pressing the Flight Pause button on the remote controller or tapping Stop on the screen in DJI Fly. The aircraft hovers for three seconds and awaits further pilot commands. To enable APAS, open DJI Fly, enter System Settings>Safety, and enable APAS. APAS is disabled when using Intelligent Flight modes and recording at high resolution such as 2.7K 48/50/60 fps, 1080p 48/50/60/120/240 fps, and 4K 48/50/60 fps. APAS is only available when flying forward and backward. If the aircraft flies left or right, APAS is disabled. Make sure you use APAS when the Forward and Backward Vision Systems are available. Be sure there are no people, animals, objects with small surface areas (e.g., tree branches), or transparent objects (e.g., glass or water) along the desired flight path. Make sure you use APAS when the Downward Vision System is available or the GPS signal is strong. APAS may not function properly when the aircraft is flying over water or snow-covered area. Be extra cautious when flying in extremely dark (<300 lux) or bright (>10,000 lux) environments. Pay attention to DJI Fly and ensure the aircraft is working in APAS mode normally. Flight Recorder Flight data including flight telemetry, aircraft status information, and other parameters are automatically saved to the internal data recorder of the aircraft. The data can be accessed using DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic. Propellers There are two types of Mavic Air 2 Low-Noise Quick Release Propellers, which are designed to spin in different directions. Marks are used to indicate which propellers should be attached to which motors. Make sure to match the propeller and motor following the instructions.
