Air 2S Frequently Asked Questions:


What subscription do I need to fly the DJI Air 2S using DroneDeploy?

If you have a paid plan or are on a trial, you can fly the Air 2S with DroneDeploy. Free plans are not eligible.


Do you know if this is supported on Android? 

Support for this drone is iOS only.

Yes, LiveMap is supported.


Is offline flight supported on the DJI Air 2S?

You can go ahead and fly offline with the DroneDeploy app using your DJI Air 2S; please make sure you make the plan available offline.


Do you know if the SmartController is supported?

The Smart Controller is not supported for this particular platform. 


Why can't users on free accounts fly the Air 2S with DroneDeploy?

DJI does not provide a third-party waypoint SDK to support autonomous flight for this drone. However, DroneDeploy has created a workaround that has added costs. Becoming a paid user gives access to this automated experience and many more features/toolsets to utilize the full potential of captured drone data. 


When connected to the Air 2S, I see a black FPV screen.

A black First Person Viewer (FPV) screen could mean you are using a 3rd party USB cable to connect the mobile device to the controller. Please use the original lightning cable that came with the mobile device.
