Best MicroSD Cards for DJI Mavic Air 2

This article was updated on October 8th, 2020

First off, I would like to mention you can get $10 off your order of the DJI Mavic Air 2, Mavic Mini or other main product at the DJI Online Store with this coupon link!

It’s important to note that using the incorrect MicroSD card in terms of performance can cause frames to be dropped from your 4K/60fps recordings.

If you already own the Mavic Air 2 and are only using the 8GB of internal storage, you’re severely limiting yourself and your creativity. You’re looking at only being able to record about 8-minutes of 4K footage and it’s a bigger hassle when it comes time to want to download your footage to your desktop or laptop.

Usually DJI, in the past has listed recommended MicroSD cards on their product page for each of their products but they either haven’t gotten to this for the upcoming Mavic Air 2 drone or they don’t plan on releasing this data. I did however find they have a few recommended cards in their shop for the new drone.
