So you bought a new DJI Mavic Air 2 and now want to register your drone with FAA or want to get DJI Care Refresh insurance but you are not sure where to find your Mavic Air 2 serial number that is required for the process.
Your drone serial number is a unique 14 digit identification number required for various purposes. It is basically your drone’s number plate. There are three ways to find your Mavic Air 2 serial number:
- You can find your Mavic Air 2 serial number on the side of the box.
- You can find it inside the battery compartment.
- You can find it from inside your DJI Fly App
Let me explain each of them in a bit more detail so that you can find exactly what you are looking for. Apparently, there is a lot of confusion among the Mavic Air 2 users about the serial number on Mavic air 2 and the reason is the way DJI has printed the serial number inside the battery compartment. Let’s get to it.
Mavic Air 2 serial number format
The Mavic Air 2 serial number is a 14 digit Alphanumeric number that is unique for each unit. Here is an example of a serial number you might find on your MA2.
Important note: To avoid confusion between the digit zero (0) and the English alphabet “O”, DJI states that they only use the digit zero in the serial number. So all every ‘0’ is a digit zero.

Serial number on the box sticker
This is the easiest way to find your Mavic Air 2 serial number if you still have your drone box. Before shipping, DJI puts a removable sticker on every box that contains the model, color, version, and the serial number of the drone inside. This is where you will find your drone’s S/N.
Remember to look for a pasted sticker on one of the clean sites. The serial number is printed on the removable sticker. It is not printed on the bottom of the box itself.
Serial number inside battery compartment
If you don’t have your box or your mom or wife just threw it out, don’t worry, you can still find your Mavic Air 2 serial number inside the battery compartment. Check the image below
Take out the battery and look at the bottom of the sticker inside your battery compartment. You will see a QR code and two numbers on the right of the QR code. This is where people get confused. Which one is the serial number?
Well, it’s actually a combination of the top and bottom strings. You will have to combine them both to get your 14 digits serial number. Due to a shortage of printing space, the serial number is split in half (not cool DJI, not cool)
Serial number inside the DJI Fly App
If you have already activated your DJI Mavic Air 2, you can easily find your serial number inside the DJI Fly App. This is helpful in case you have lost your box, and the sticker inside your battery compartment is erased.
To find your serial number via the DJI Fly App, follow the following simple steps:
- Open the App screen and tap on the 3-dots on top right corner.
- From the menu, tap on the “About” section on the right side.
- Scroll down and you will see “Flight Controller SN” and a 14-digit alphanumberic number in front of it. This is your serial number.
You will need your serial number for both drone registration, and in case you need to purchase DJI care refresh insurance. You can find your serial number either on the box sticker, inside your drone battery compartment, or inside your DJI Fly App.
