I think if you haven't owned one before I'd go with the mini. Plus there is every chance this drone will be obsolete in 2022 with the rules that are coming in.

I mean the mini might too but at least it's cheaper.

4K, tracking, obstacle avoidance are the main ones.

What rules are coming in 2022 that would make it obsolete?

Thanks for that, but there’s a lot of info buried in there in multiple threads. Can you advise what would be the main areas of concern that would make this drone (and the Mini) obsolete when these rules take effect? That would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

Yes and a mini will survive them in terms of where they can be flown. I could be wrong about that because it has a camera. In 2022 basically nothing that hasn't been ce marked and given a category can only be flown 150m from buildings and not have people around.

That's what I have understood but I haven't got to know it perfectly. So I could be wrong on some of this.
I've just bought a used air instead of the mini, as it has obstacle avoidance and tracking, but the main thing is it has more power /weight so is better to cope with breezy conditions, by comparison the mini is very lightweight and flimsy build quality.

As of yesterday, I think the EU has pushed back to 31st December.

All true, but horses for courses, the air is still more than the mini 2nd hand, although I'm sure you got a good price. The mini suits 99% of people who are starting out and are purely hobbyists imo.
I could be wrong, and happy to be corrected if this isn't the case, but having read the rules, solely as a recreational user, my legacy mavic air under the rules of Sub part A3 is limited to fly without putting people in danger and no closer then 150m of congested areas. If anything it's actually less specific than what many of us operate under now with the CAA rules. Theres no specific distance given in Sub part A3 for distance from people or buildings as per the EASA text I read, but I believe the CAA still recommend 30m/50m, and the congested areas restriction has always been in place (see below). The new drones with the "C" markings will have to have sufficent technology which then allows some additional relaxing, for example within 5m of people in congested areas if it has a specific speed control setting etc. Let's assume the "new" mavic air would be classed as a C1 drone, because of its weight you cant over fly people (as its more than 250g) so although there is no restriction specifically on congested areas its unlikely there will be many places you wouldnt be flying over people which is then prohibited anyway. I think there will be some senarios where people may be better to hold off but for recreational flying alone I'm not sure it makes that much of a difference. I think it's a shame that there wont be some back certification, as for example the mavic air has obstacle avoidance, where other drones do not that are under 250g so infact it should in theory be safer to operate an air in more crowded areas! I think that the new series of drones will be more expensive to mirror the technology that is now required also.
I should also add that I have heard (havent checked those rules) that the mini will not be classified as Sub part A1 because EASA rules dictate its based on maximum take of mass not its operated mass. With the prop guards which it is designed for use with it actually breaks the 250g of weight limit.

Probably a bit expensive now vs. Newer models.

I genuinely have both and will definitely say the air is ‘slightly’ better than the mini , obstacle avoidance is pretty good but honestly even though it’s 2.7k the mini has actually got better picture quality and lasts slightly longer in the air ... generally I wouldn’t advise flying either in winds of more than 20mph anyway

What rules, as I have a dji mavic 2 enterprise universal edition drone. Want to stay updated on the rules.
