DJI, the global leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, once again surprised with another new product in their drone portfolio, the so-called Mavic Mini.
The Mavic Mini is an ultra-light folding drone designed to provide new opportunities for drone users as an everyday FlyCam. The drone weighs just 249 grams and is portable, easy to use and a great gadget for those who want to experience the fun of flying. Due to its low weight, the drone belongs to the lowest weight class, which also means fewer statutory regulations in some countries. Nevertheless, drone pilots should always pay attention to local regulations and laws.
“To design a drone as lightweight, compact yet capable as Mavic Mini was one of the most challenging projects we’ve ever tackled at DJI,” said Roger Luo, President, DJI.
“Distilling top-of-the-line features into a palm-of-your-hand drone is the culmination of years of work, and we are ecstatic to bring a new class of drone to the DJI lineup. Mavic Mini’s long flight time, ultra-light weight and high-quality camera makes it DJI’s everyday drone – and most importantly, it’s easy to fly, no matter your experience level with drones.”
The Mavic Mini captures 12-megapixel photos and videos in 2.7K QHD and provides a built-in three-axis stabilization of the gimbal. The ultra-light design and high-grade motors provide Mavic Mini with up to 30 minutes of flight time. The included remote control provides low-latency video transmission in HD, with a range of up to two kilometers.
Pilots can also choose from several pre-programmed flight maneuvers known as QuickShots. Simply tap the desired mode and Mavic Mini will automatically create stunning, cinematic content:
- Rocket – Mavic Mini flies straight up into the air with the camera pointing downward following your subject. Set a height limit of 40, 60, 80, 100, or 120 feet.
- Circle – Mavic Mini will circle around your subject at a constant altitude and distance.
- Dronie – Mavic Mini flies backward and upward, with the camera tracking your subject. Set a height limit of 40, 60, 80, 100, or 120 feet.
- Helix – Mavic Mini flies upward and away, spiraling around your subject. Set a height limit of 40, 60, 80, 100, or 120 feet.
The Mavic Mini can independently reduce airspeed and gimbal movements for greater precision and stabilization. This mode can be very useful in complex spaces and situations.
The DJI Fly app gives users access to the exciting SkyPixel platform, a social network where users can share their photos and videos.
