What iOS devices are NOT supported for Mavic Air 2 flights?
All of our supported and recommended devices are listed here. Devices outside of this list are untested, and may not work appropriately with this drone.
Why does this drone require a paid subscription?
Unlike other DJI drones, DJI does not provide a third-party iOS SDK (Software Development Kit) to support autonomous flight for this drone. However, DroneDeploy has created a workaround which in turn, has added costs. Our paid plan provides you access to this automated experience along with many more features/toolsets to utilize the full potential of captured drone data.
