Mavic Air 2 combo vs standard: Is It Worth It?

Mavic Air 2 fly more combo vs standard pack

Like most DJI drones, the new Mavic Air 2 was also announced in two variants, “Standard” and “Fly More Combo”. Let’s find out what you get for the extra 189 bucks!

Both Mavic Air 2 box options come ready-to-fly with an included remote controller. As you can guess, the “Fly more combo” is dedicated to those who need extended flight time. Combo comes with 3 flight batteries and one charging hub which allows to charger 3 batteries in a sequence. This configuration will allow you to fly close to 100 minutes in a row. Combo also includes 3 extra pairs of spare propellers, a pack of ND filters, and a shoulder bag. Furthermore, it also includes a power bank adapter, which turns your Mavic Air 2 battery into a veritable power bank. In contrast, the “Standard” option comes with the bare necessities to get flying – it doesn’t even include a memory card for recording.

Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo box

Bottom line

The math shows that going with a combo pack you will make a good deal. Paying just $189 more you will get accessories in value of $455, this is a saving of $266! Of course, combo fits especially for those who will use their Air 2 more than once in a week.

On the other hand, if you are only an occasional drone user, I think the standard pack will be just fine for you. There is no sense to invest in extra batteries or a multi-battery charging hub. Based on my experience, the only thing you will need is the shoulder bag which allows you to conveniently store and transport your Air 2 Mavic drone.

  1. DJI always has best deals for Combo pack. Buy the Mavic Air 2 standard and you will pay lots more in a weeks for accessories than purchasing the Fly More Combo from the begging!

  2. I’m the hwappy owner of the Mavic Air 2 Combo. I’m also hobbyiest photographer and I need a bigger bag to take my quadcopter and my photo gear in the same bag. Wich bag do you propose to me for all the stuff? Personsly I like the Torvol Drone Explorer Backpack looks great for Air2 Combo pack but before buying it I ask you 🙂
    Thx

  3. I just bought a mavic air 2 combo from Amazon. But they don’t offer dji care. So how can I get dji care for my drone. any ideas ?

    • DJI Care Refresh can be ordered directly from DJI, and as I know you need to activate it within 48 hours after the AIR2 has been activated.

  4. Question for all the Mavic Air 2 owners. What are some accessories you have for the Mavic Air 2? I bought the Fly More combo edition What other accessories should I buy for safety and better camera performance?

    • ‘Combo’ box includes pretty much of the accessories you need. I would be investing only in a landing pad (if you can’t catch it by hand), variable ND filters and car charger.

  5. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts in making things clear! Now, I know that the combo is the best bang for your money!

  6. Last week, I Ordered a Mavic Air 2 Fly More Combo from DJI. So far only thing that has happened is a shipping label was created. Is this normal? There is any delay in sipping because of COVID-19?

  7. I ordered the Mavic air 2 fly more bundle and one of the batteries can’t be charged of the box…. Do I need to send back everything for replacement, or just the bad battery?
    Thank!

  8. Just ordered mine. I opted for fly-more combo at the DJI store today. Can’t wait to test the 8K hyper-lapse mode

  9. Hi Greg, I’m from Lancaster, I ordered standard Mavic Air 2 (£769) from DJI store on June 4 and it arrived on June 12. I think it is a good delivery time!
    Don’t forget about the “Care refresh” service, it is only £79 and it will give you free replacements if something goes wrong with your drone…
    Remember: It needs activated within the last 48 hours!!!

  10. Hi,

    I want to order a Air 2 Combo, how fast DJI delivers? I’m in the UK and I think they would be the best option for me…

  11. None of them are real alternatives. For its price, the Mavic Air 2 is a technology marvel! It comes with far the best battery life and range in its price tag!!!
    I instantly sold my old FIMI X8SE and placed the order for Air 2, hope to arrive soon
    I will keep you updated with a short review after arrived

    #BeSafe!
