The DJI Mavic Mini has landed! Pre-order today!

October 30, 2019

After weeks and months of speculation and anticipation, the long-awaited DJI Mavic Mini has landed and it's the next best thing since the Mavic 2!

DJI has very cleverly designed an aircraft that weighs no more than 249g, which negates the CAA requirement to affix an Operator Number to the aircraft.

 

The small, light Mavic Mini sits comfortably into the palm of your hand and folds away into the tiniest of packages. With a maximum flight time of upto 30 minutes on one battery, this aircraft is the ultimate travel companion for capturing shots on the fly (pun intended).

What's great about the DJI Mavic Mini?

249g Weight

The fact that the aircraft comes under 250g is a big wing for DJI as this negates the requirement to register in the aircraft in some countries, like the United Kingdom from 30 November 2019.

 

 

30-Minute Flight Time

A 30 minute flight time is incredible for such a small drone, when you consider the Spark had a maximum flight time of 16 minutes.

 

How long does it take to charge?

Using the DJI 18W USB charger, a battery can be fully charged in 90 minutes.

 

 

2.7K Filming Resolution

The size of the aircraft is very impressive, and the fact it packs a camera that can capture video resolutions of up-to 2.7K is great for travellers and bloggers who want equiment that doesn't take up much space in a backback.

 

What camera does Mavic Mini have?

Mavic Mini has a 12MP 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor (24mm-equivalent lens with an ISO range of 100-3200).

Mavic Mini and the DJI Fly app support multiple QuickShots to make it easier to shoot cinematic video with just a few taps. You can also set intervals on the camera for the ultimate selfie.
