The 3-Minute DJI Mavic Mini Review
The Everyday Drone
By Rachel Hutson | January 25, 2020
DJI released the Mavic Mini in October 2019, designed as a small compact easy to use drone for any beginner user.
Only weighing 249 g, this ultralight drone lives up to its Mini name. It provides you with 30min flight time, and it is fitted with a vision sensor and GPS precise hover. The Camera is 2.7K and has a 3-axis gimbal. HD video transmission ranges up to 4km.
It has simplified recording and editing that allows any new drone user a smooth venture into drone videography, as it allows you to create cinematic shots with a few simple clicks to its preset quick shot modes.
Features & Design: 3/5 ● Performance: 5/5 ● Value: 5/5 ● Sound Quality 0/5
The DJI Mavic Mini comes with some cool features like the quick shot modes. By just selecting one of the pre-set modes, it executes a sophisticated motion while recording.
This device gives 12MP aerial photos with 2.7K Quad HD videos. The 3-axis motorized gimbal provides camera stability that is clear and ultra-smooth while recording
There are no collision avoidance systems with this unit, which makes it a hard choice if you are using it in confined spaces. There are no blade guards which are optional extras that push the price up.
As for battery charge time, this is where you may find the need for multiple batteries and a charging unit, as charging it with the USB cable or car charger can take hours.
There is not much of a tilt-up angle on this device due to the gimble not being able to go above 90°. This leads to sharp stop shots when having to film wide and vertical scenery.
Is it for you?
This lightweight drone is easy to use compact and gives an excellent flight time of 30 minutes. This is a good starter drone as well as a good drone for when you travel. There are lots of pluses to this device making it more than worthwhile.
What we like
The Mini drone takes such high-quality video while remaining highly agile in the air, with an uninterrupted flight time of just 30 minutes. Even though this flight time lacks in comparison to other drones, not many can keep up with the quality video and added features all at this price point.
With the DJI Fly app, it gives users access to SkyPixel, a social media platform for users to share their work and even discover popular aerial photography spots in your area.
What we don’t like
The Mavic Mini protective blade guards are sold separately from the drone, which would have been nice if it came with, for first time users this is a necessary extra as you may land up damaging your drone the first time you use it.
If you wish to fly, it on a windy day or above-average altitude, you may land up losing your drone as it can’t handle wind very well and often gets swept up in it due to its lightweight body.
Should you buy it?
If you are about to venture into the world of drones and or drone photograph or videography and what excellent quality video and images all for a reasonable price, then this compact guy ticks all the right boxes.
