Biggest issue we have is: 
	•	Need Ocusync for better transmission over normal ranges (in urban areas) + get farther distances (over the lake). Going to get the Mavic Air 2 probably. 
	⁃	Only good video on Ocusync:
	⁃	Probably $800 new, probably $700 refurbished. 
	⁃	Mavic looks closer to the 360-degree obstacle avoidance seen on the Mavic 2 series. 
	⁃	Will need to get more batteries (probably $60 each), could just get 3 for now.  
	⁃	DJI said last year that all new drones it releases from 2020 (that weigh over 250g) will include AirSense tech, which receives ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters and warns you if they're on a collision course with your drone.
	⁃	The reason they couldn't put the Ocusync in the Mavic Air was probably because it requires a better processor, and they couldn't do heat dissipation in that form factor. 
	•	Want to get a more immersive experience (chasing birds) and better pans (shots of buildings), so going to buy the DJI Goggles as well, probably just spring for the Racing Edition. Can get them used. 
	⁃	USB $350 for racing edition (
	⁃	If you’re going to be spending a lot of time flying an expensive drone that you might as well fork over an extra $100 to get the best experience possible. 
	⁃	The latency and connection is probably worth just paying the extra. Let's just go all out. 
	⁃	USD $279 for normal
	•	Can get student discount, 10% off. 

Can I use DJI Goggles or DJI Goggles RE with the Mavic Air 2?
