Yes, we will record and save flight logs from Mavic Air 2 flights.


Does this support LiveMap?

Why do flight plans take longer than expected to complete?

What iOS devices are NOT supported for Mavic Air 2 flights?

All of our supported and recommended devices are listed here. Devices outside 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 that has added costs. Our paid plan provides you access to this automated experience and many more features/toolsets to utilize the full potential of captured drone data.
