DJI Mavic Mini Drone

Honestly, we just bought this drone in May 2020, so the jury is still out.

We have the Combo package that gave us more batteries, a carrying case and blade protectors which function like training wheels as we learn to fly this thing.

It’s just for fun – adds a new dimension for recording our adventures. But we’re seeing some unexpected advantages – like having a look at the roof without having to go up there and same for the undercarriage. Also, when boon docking, it’s a kinda cool to survey the area before going on a hike.

This unit is so small, it fits in the palm of a hand, and so light it doesn’t require a license to fly.

It remains to be seen how often we will use it and how much we like the quality of the photos.

Using it in windy conditions is risky without the blade protectors, but the blade protectors prevent keep the unit lower to the ground. We just have a lot to learn.

We will update as we know more.
