All technical specifications for both drones are available on the official DJI website.

Differences and similarities

In a direct comparison of both models, it becomes clear that the Air 3 is technically superior to the Air 2S. Even though the newer model takes a step back in resolution and “only” allows 4k recordings, while the Air 2S offers 5.4K. The overall package of the Air 3 simply delivers more here.

Design

Visually, there are differences between the two models. On the one hand, this is of course due to the Air 3’s eye-catching dual camera, which offers a wide-angle and a telephoto lens, but also due to the arrangement of the sensors. Unlike the Air 2S, the Air 3 offers an omnidirectional obstacle detection system. This means that the drone can detect obstacles from all directions (front, back, top, bottom, side).

Camera

The camera system used is more flexible thanks to the two lenses, helped by the ability to rotate it 90°. These portrait shots are particularly suitable for distribution on social media without having to crop the existing shot.

Weight

For this, the Air 3 turns out to be slightly larger and also heavier. With a weight of 720g compared to 595g also quite noticeable. Nevertheless, the weight only plays a subordinate role in this case. This is because the Air 3 comes with a C1 label, which means that the drone can be flown in the Open category without any problems in the future (european drone regulation).

Flying time

The 3 version also improves on the flight time. According to DJI, the Air 3 can stay in the air for up to 46 minutes, while the 2S only manages 31 minutes. Even though these are values under laboratory conditions, the increase is nevertheless respectable.

Flight altitude and range

There are also improvements in flight altitude and range, but due to drone laws, these are more theoretical in nature and should only be relevant for very few drone pilots.

Special features

Especially worth mentioning: The DJI Air 3 supports a waypoints function for the first time in the series. This allows flight routes to be planned in advance, which can then be flown automatically by the drone. A powerful and much desired feature that was previously only reserved for the larger models such as the Mavic 3!

DJI’s in-house OcuSync transmission protocol has also been upgraded. The Air 3 is DJI’s first drone to use OcuSync 4.0 (O4). This means: more range, better latency, sharper image. The prerequisite for this, however, is one of the two new remote controls released at the same time as the drone. These are the DJI RC-N2 as a further development of the well-known RC-N1, and the DJI RC 2 as the successor model to the DJI RC.

Price

The RRP of both drones is not far apart. While the regular price for the Air 2S is 999€, the Air 3 starts at 1099€. For the upgrades on offer, this is a good price and there is definitely nothing to complain about. However, you should also bear in mind that the Air 2S is currently on sale and will be more frequently in the future, where the price will often be around €799.

Summary

DJI has once again delivered an excellent upgrade to an existing drone with the Air 3. Apart from the lower video resolution, there are improvements in almost all areas of the new drone compared to its predecessor, the DJI Air 2S.

Particularly noteworthy are the dual and swivelling camera system, the C1 label, the waypoint function, the omnidirectional obstacle detection system and the two new remote controls with O4 support.

With all the new features, it should also be said that the Air 2S is still a super drone that will certainly remain interesting for a large number of drone pilots thanks to the current and future discounts.
