DJI launches its smallest and lightest foldable drone, the Mavic Mini

DJI's new Mavic Mini is the perfect drone for everyone

The drone can also be controlled via the DJI Fly app which has its own intuitive design aimed at simplifying the flying and content capturing experiences so that even amateur drone pilots can manoeuvre the Mavic Mini easily.

Finally, DJI has also updated its DJI Fly app, adding some new features like tutorials for new pilots, specially-designed flying modes, and new QuickShot flying modes that will keep Mavic Mini users entertained.

The Mavic Mini's photo and video capabilities slot in between the $919 Mavic Air and the $500 DJI Spark, though the latter is no longer available for purchase. The camera is mounted onto a 3-axis motorized gimbal, and the removable Lithium Ion battery promises 30 minutes of flight time on a single charge. The foldable Mavic Mini weighs in at just 249 grams, and comes with a bunch of features created to make drone flying and aerial photography fun and accessible to everyone, without skimping on quality. Unfortunately, due to its size, the drone is only equipped with a 2.7K resolution camera instead of a 4K resolution camera typically found on its bigger brothers, the Mavic Air and Mavic Pro. With your phone attached to the controller, you can get the live video feed from the drone in HD for up to a distance of 4km.

Baker Mayfield walks out of press conference after exchange with reporter
The Browns (2-5) will look to clinch a morale-boosting victory when they visit the Broncos (2-6) on Sunday. You want me to build my franchise around that?? You don't play, you don't know.

As with other DJI drones, you connect the Mavic Mini to a free smartphone app. Pilots can also choose from several pre-programmed flight maneuvers known as QuickShots. I'm pleased that you get such a robust flying experience and decent quality video capture from such a compact and lightweight machine. Moreso than the company's other drones, you can stuff this in a backpack and still have room for plenty of other stuff. The weight of the drone is quite possibly of the most enticing factors, especially for first-time drone owners in the US.

What's interesting is that the official spec page lists two type of batteries - Intelligent battery with 2,400mAh capacity that weighs 100g and the Intelligent Flight Battery (1100mAh) which is much lighter at 50g. The combo will cost you $499. For the extra money, you're getting 3x intelligent flight batteries, 3x spare propellers, 18x spare screws, 360-degree propeller guard, a two-way charging hub with an 18W USB charger and a carrying bag.

DJI Mavic Mini is on sale now here. There's also a Snap adapter that lets you attach an LED display or building block on top of the drone for Dollars 15 (about RM63). You'll still have to check local ordinances, but it at least removes one small hassle for operating your drone legally.
