About the DJI Mini 2
Fly with 4K
Fly with 4K
The original Mavic Mini was one of our top sellers because it punched well over its weight class. Compact and convenient, it was a great introduction for newcomers to the hobby. Now DJI is “back with a brand new invention” and it might just be grabbing us tightly. The Mini 2 keeps everything our customers loved about the original and adds some key upgrades.
The camera still has a three-axis gimbal to keep it steady, but now it rocks 4K video with 4X digital zoom. At the same time, the drone's motors have been upgraded to resist winds up to 24 miles per hour. That means it's easier than ever to get smooth airborne video with crisp details and vibrant colors.
Getting a fuzzy feed or losing the video connection entirely mid-flight is less than ideal. The Mini 2 uses OcuSync 2.0, an improved wireless connection that can automatically switch between two different bands (2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz), to resist pesky interference. This way you can relax a little and focus on getting sweet aerial footage.
With video transmission range up to 6.2 miles and a maximum altitude of 2.4 miles, you can fly this drone farther and higher than you might expect. You can catch a shot panning over a mountainside or along a ravine while you're planted safely on terra firma.
Making it easy
The included remote controller acts as a dock for your smartphone, which becomes your display when you use the DJI Fly app. The app does way more than just control the drone though. With comprehensive tutorials, a wide selection of video modes, and intelligent flight features, the user experience is robust and beginner-friendly. It's easy to start learning to fly. Before you know it, you'll be zipping the drone overhead with confidence.
You can also edit your footage directly within the Fly app. Built-in filters, background music, and professionally designed video templates help you splice together cool content in minutes. Connect to SkyPixel, DJI's social media platform, to share your creations with other hobbyists in the community.
