DJI Mavic Mini 2 Drone

We bought the Mavic Mini 1 drone in mid-2020 and LOVE it. The Mini 1 is no longer available, but the updated Mavic Mini 2 is even better.

We have the Combo package that gave us more batteries, a carrying case and accessories.

It’s just for fun and 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. Also, when boondocking, 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.

Here are some videos and photos we have taken so far.

  • Fly farther to capture stunning 4K aerial videos with the Mini 2 from DJI. Utilizing DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 2.4/5.8 GHz wireless transmission technology, the Mini 2 can be operated from up to 6.2 miles away while still providing you with video of what the drone sees. The Mini 2 can also be flown as high as 2.5 miles and withstand 19 to 24 mph winds, all while maintaining a compact, foldable design that weighs only 8.8 oz. It’s small and light enough to take with you almost anywhere.
  • Using a handful of different pre-programmed drone flight patterns, you can use the DJI Fly app to quickly take professional-level videos. You can choose from Dronie, Helix, Rocket, Circle, or Boomerang modes. Once captured, the DJI Fly app lets you add filters and soundtracks and share your work directly to social media platforms.
  • With aerial photography, the canvas is vast, which is why DJI gives you multiple options of capturing it all with panorama modes. You can choose from Wide-Angle, 180°, or Sphere panoramas. The Mini 2 automatically does the rest.
