PolarPro DJI Mavic Air Leg Extensions / Landing Gear

In this video, we take a closer look at the PolarPro DJI Mavic Air Leg Extensions / Landing Gear. Some of DJI small folding drones are fantastic in the fact that they are very portable and take up very little room in a camera bag, however, this can also create a problem. In trying to keep the Mavic Air’s footprint as small as possible there tends to be very little clearance between the ground and the camera and gimbal. This can cause problems when trying to take off / land is grass, gravel, and sand. When the gimbal calibrates before take off it moves all around. If the camera happens to hit some gravel it could potentially scratch the camera lens. Sand and debris can get into the gimbal motors and cause problems as well. Let’s not forget grass getting wrapped around the motors and propellers.

Polar Pro makes a nice landing gear extension kit for the DJI Mavic Air. Installation is easy and they raise the Mavic Air by 1.35 inches. During my test flights, I found that there was no difference in flight performance or battery use as these extensions weigh almost nothing and have a very small profile.
