 To take your Dji Mavic Air drone footage to the next level and capture even better shots it’s worth considering investing in a few of the best DJI Mavic Air accessories. We’ve travelled around the world with our drones for the last few years and know the importance of having the right drone gear you need to capture epic footage.

 We’ve put together this list of the best DJI Mavic Air accessories that every drone owner should consider investing in. 

The accessories in this list will allow you to fly longer, safer and capture the best footage possible with your Dji Mavic Air drone.

  Here are our favorite DJI Mavic Air Accessories you should have to maximize your new drone’s potential:

1- Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Battery:

Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Battery

 The battery that is pre-included with the Mavic Air can deliver an impressive flight time of up to 21 minutes. This can be considered above average, but you never know when you might need more. This is why it is always a good idea to carry around a few extra batteries so you don’t miss that perfect drone shot.

 The Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Battery is made of high-density lithium, and comes with the standard intelligent battery management system we have come to expect from DJI drones.


  • Capacity: 2375 mAh
  • Voltage: 11.55 V, Max 13.2 V
  • Battery Type: LiCoO2
  • Energy: 27.43 Wh

2- Dji Mavic Air Filters

 Everyone talks about DJI Mavic Air filters, but what do they actually do? Many aerial videographers like to shoot with their shutter speed at double that of their frame rate. This cinematography principle is referred to as the 180 degree shutter rule. At this shutter speed to frame rate ratio, each video frame will blend together smoothly, leaving you with videos looking like they were meant for the big screen.

 Now that you know what you are trying to accomplish while shooting, here is where the DJI Mavic Air Filters come in.  When shooting outdoors, you will notice your shutter speed is often way over the double frame rate to shutter speed ratio.  The only way to reduce shutter speed to double your frame rate is to place a Neutral Density filter in front of the camera.  This will trick the camera into lowering the shutter speed to cinematic levels.

There are a lot of DJI Mavic Air Filters to choose from, here are the differences:

  • Cinema Series (Gold Color Frame): PolarPro’s Production-grade glass has a very low refractive index, with 8-layers of precision AR (anti-reflective) and anti-scratch coatings for pilots who demand the best image quality.


ND Filters: Single element, straight Neutral Density filters reduce shutter speed to cinematic levels.  Straight ND filters do not affect the Mavic Air’s color profile.

ND/PL Filters: Single element, hybrid Mavic Air Neutral Density / Polarizer filters reduce shutter speed and also reduce glare, enhancing color saturation and contrast.  These are favored by pilots looking to make colors pop.

The most popular DJI Mavic Air Filter sets we sell are both 6-Packs (Cinema Series and Standard Series) which include ND and ND/PL filters.  Each 6-Pack will cover almost any lighting condition you will face, from dawn to dusk.


3- Mavic Air Gimbal Protector

 The Mavic Air Gimbal Protector is used to protect your gimbal and camera from being knocked and prevents a build-up of dirt when the aircraft is not in use.



4- DJI Mavic Air - Landing Gear

 One thing you will notice about your new DJI Mavic Air is that it sits flat on the ground. This is great for portability, however makes it challenging to take off on uneven surfaces, and also puts the camera a little too close to the ground for our liking.

 These DJI Mavic Air Leg Extensions will raise the camera 1.35 inches off the ground keeping it away from the dust, dirt and sand. There are few things worse than watching your props blow sand up right into your brand new gimbal and camera. Another reason why we like the Landing Gear is that it allows you to take off from uneven surfaces with ease. 


5- Mavic Air Car Charger

 The Mavic Air Car Charger is used to charge the Intelligent Flight Battery through the car's 12 V accessory socket. It comes with low-voltage protection to ensure enough starting battery voltage for the car. Overheating protection will automatically cut off charging if the accessory port exceeds a certain temperature.


6- Dji Mavic Air Propellers Accessories


These DJI Propellers for Mavic Air are designed to replace those that come with the Mavic Air. Keep extra propellers on-hand in case any become damaged.


7- Mavic Air Propeller Guard

 Protect people and objects from spinning propellers by mounting this small and light Propeller Guard directly on the propellers to ensure a long, safe flight. It is recommended to use these propeller guards in windless environments or during indoor and low-speed flight.


8- Dji Mavic Air Battery Charging Hub

 Due to its compact and simple design, it is hard to believe that the Mavic Air Battery Charging Hub can charge up to four Mavic Air Intelligent Flight Batteries. Charging batteries individually can be quite bothersome and impractical, and this battery provides an elegant solution.

 This charging hub charges several batteries on a sequence according to their remaining battery levels, so your batteries will be good to go at the shortest possible time. Its sleek and compact build also makes it easy to pack and transport, so you can bring it with you easily on those long trips.

A hub charger will allow you to charge 4 batteries at a time.

9- PGYTECH Drone Landing Pad

 The Mavic Air’s camera and gimbal array are probably some of the most expensive parts of the drone. As they are positioned on the bottom of the drone, they can be prone to getting damaged while landing the Mavic Air. This is especially true in environments where there are tall grass or shrubs, or on uneven terrain with sharp rocks.

PGYTECH Drone Landing Pad

 The PGYTECH Drone Landing Pad comes in very handy in these situations. The landing pad provides a level and safe surface where the Mavic Air can land without damaging any of its components. This landing pad can also be folded into a compact bundle, making it extremely portable and easy to use.

  • Portable and easy to use.
  • Protects the gimbal and camera.
  • Pegs are included for securing to the ground.
                                         

10- DJI Mavic Remote Controller Monitor Hood Sun

 On bright sunny days, it can be very difficult to see your phone screen when you’re flying your drone. Even at full brightness, there will be times you struggle to see the screen, so a sun hood is an invaluable accessory for your Mavic Air.
 The Monitor Hood from DJI shields your smartphone and the LCD screen on your Mavic Air Controller from direct sunlight to give you a clearer view of your screens. The hood attaches quickly and easily to your controller and can be adjusted to best shield the sun and improve your view.

14- Adobe Premiere Pro CC

 What are the must-have features a video editor should have to be considered good for drone footage? Most drone owners say video editing is video editing after all, no matter whether you were shooting on a drone or on a smartphone. That being said, there is still a list of tools you'll be using more frequently (than a smartphone owner) because of aerial camera ins and outs.   

  • easy cut/split feature - because that unexpected crash from last flight must be cut out.
  • video stabilization tool - because even the best drones might make use of it sometimes.
  • color/brightness correction - because if the sun is around, there is always a chance of under- or overexposure.
  • video zooming - because you can't always fly too close to the object of interest.
  • footage speed settings - because timelapses rule.
Besides, it's important to be able to work with high quality videos effortlessly. In other words, the video editor should be able to open drone footage, process it and export in the high quality as well.

Adobe premier pro

Whether you just recently started thinking of editing your drone recordings, or you're looking for a better piece of software, below is a list you may make use of. It's been gathered with help of drone forum members and drone YouTubers, whom I'll quote below.

So, If you're well experienced at video editing: Adobe Premier pro is the best for you!

 This one doesn't need to be introduced. Having become a de-facto standard in the world of professional video editing, Adobe Premiere Pro is also the most frequently named piece of software among drone owners. Starting this year, Adobe PP has gone cross-platform, so even some Mac users tend to choose it over Final Cut Pro despite slower performance and higher costs in the long run.

 Format Advice: If you host Premiere Pro on a strong PC, it will easily handle 4K videos from Phantom. If you feel, however, that 4K may be too much for your machine, simply convert the footage to MPEG-2, which is a recommended codec for Adobe.


15- MicroSD - Sandisk Extreme V30 a1

  According to the specs, Class 10 or UHS-1 rating is required, Dji are not able to confirm the compatibility of other types of SD cards. Therefore, dji advise using the recommended SD cards which have been tested and verifies and could ensure the full functions. 

MicroSD - Sandisk Extreme V30 a1

 That's why if you want Micro SD with 32GB, 64GB or 128 GB the best choice is: Sandisk Extreme V30 a1 for your Dji Mavic Air.
