DJI officially unveiled its all-new Mavic Air Drone today at a press event in New York City.

The hobby aircraft is nearly half the size of the original Mavic Pro and weighs only 15 ounces. Not to mention, owners can effortlessly fold up the drone and tuck it into their pockets. As far as specs go, the Air is equipped with a built-in 4K camera that is capable of capturing 12-megapixel stills and 32-megapixel panoramic images. The drone-maker also redesigned its gimbal for better three-axis stabilization. Flights last for approximately 21 minutes and the gizmo has a top speed of 42 miles per hour — slightly faster than the Mavic Pro which flies around 32 miles per hour on average.

Other notable attributes include automated flight modes, spherical panorama captures, SmartCapture tech which allows users to command the drone using their hands, and 3-Directional Environment Sensing that integrates with the drone’s sensors on the front, back, and side portions to help it from crashing. The Mavic Air will officially ship out this January 28 for approximately $799 USD in Arctic White, Onyx Black, and Flame Red variants.
