DJI Mavic Mini 3 Drone

We bought the Mavic Mini 1 drone in early-2020 and LOVE it. The Mini 1 is no longer available, but the updated Mavic Mini 3 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.
