DJI Mavic Air 2 – Active Track 3.0 – Vehicle Tracking in Sport Mode – 4k

Dji Mavic Air 2 Active Track 3 0 Vehicle Tracking In Sport Mode 4k

Thank you for taking the time to watch my video. In this video, I take my Mavic Air 2 out to Johnson Valley. I wanted to test the tracking capabilities of the drone in Sport Mode. I have done several videos and tests of the MA2’s tracking abilities. This is the first time I have tracked in Sport Mode. Sport Mode will allow the drone to fly much faster. The only drawback, is that the collision sensors are all turned off. Crashes can occur. The drone actually clipped a bush during one of the tests. The drone’s reported top speed is 42.5 mph. I wanted to see if the drone would be able to track at or near it’s top speed. I tested this using Trace & Parallel modes.
Please be aware of your surroundings, and do your best to follow all local, state, and federal laws when flying your drone. I am not an expert, and make plenty of mistakes. These videos are just a reflection of my use and the results that I have gotten using the MA2.

Thanks so much for watching. If you’re looking to purchase any of the gear I use, please help me out and click on any one of the Amazon links below. Thanks

  1. Hello dear friend, do you know about the issue of stress cracked on the Mavic Air 2? I see many people complaining about that problem lately and many of them only having the drone for about one month or two. If possible please let us know what’s the reason for that issue and if DJI are aware that problem and what we should do if the drone is under warranty. Should DJI refund the money or replace for a brand New one. Best Regards from Cleveland. Jorge Rebelo

  2. If you are going to test features at least understand what they are supposed to do so you can make an assessment on whether they are capable. So many reviewers fail to read the instruction manual. If you are testing a feature called parallel wait for the drone to become parallel and then increase acceleration. So many of these lame reviews out there!

  3. In Canada you aren’t allowed to be operating the drone as well as driving the vehicle, whether that’s a car, boat, bike. And the active track I have certainly notices that because the drone angles itself so severely the fast you fly, the downward sensors are no longer pointed at the ground so the drone believed it is higher above the ground than it actually is. So especially in sport mode, because of the severity of the bank angle, you really need to watch your height AGL and manually make the drone climb if you are on rising terrain because the drone will eventually impact the ground if you aren’t watching it.

  4. I thought parallel would mean the drone would track from the side and move sideways or at worse turn the gimbal to face the subject hmm.. impressed by the top speed of tracking though and nice vistas around there.

    Wish you did one with the drone going backwards and filming the front of the vehicle. maybe next time 🙂
