DJI, a pioneer manufacturer in drone technology and air imaging, has just released its newest drone product, the Mavic Mini. Mavic Mini is claimed to be the smallest and lightest DJI drone ever produced.
This drone is a form of innovation that is packaged from a number of technologies in other drone products, such as Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, and DJI Spark.
One quick glance and you can almost see that the size of the DJI Mavic Mini is basically not that much different from the DJI Spark, but all four arms of the drone can be pulled in, and on this position, the Mavic Mini is really just as big as an adult’s palm.
The weight of the Mavic Mini is recorded at only 249 grams. As light as this drone is, DJI claims that their newest product will automatically be considered safe by regulators in many countries, who often set the weight of 250 grams as the maximum limit for drones that do not require special permission.
It might be small the DJI Mavic Mini but what is very special is how the drone is even more capable than the infamous DJI Spark. On the camera section, the DJI Mavic Mini packs a 1 / 2.3 inch CMOS sensor with a resolution of 12 megapixels capable of recording 2.7K 30 fps or 1080p 60 fps video.
The results of the recording are also certainly smoother because the camera is mounted on 3-axis dreadlocks. Another impressive stats is its efficient energy consumption; a single charge is enough to let the DJI Mavic Mini air for 30 minutes.
Not only does the video recording are stable, but the ability to air is also claimed to be very precise thanks to the presence of a series of sensors as well as GPS. While broadcasting, the communication between the drone and the remote control can continue for up to 4 kilometers.
DJI is also ensuring that the DJI Mavic Mini is not complicated for newbie consumers. Its companion application, DJI Fly, packs content to guide new users, preparing them to start learning to operate with Position mode which includes a number of basic functions.
When the costumers got more proficient, they can choose the Sport mode to maximize the potential of the DJI Mavic Mini, or the CineSmooth mode for those who want to create cinematic works. A number of automatic maneuvers are also available and can be accessed in just a few touches.
DJI Mavic Mini will soon be marketed for $ 399. This standard bundle already includes a remote control and a backup propeller. Then there is the Mavic Mini Fly Combo package offered at a price of $ 499. The package includes more additional accessories including a Propeller 360 holder, two-way charging hub, three batteries, three sets of propellers and a bag for storing the drone.
These additional accessories will also be marketed separately along with a number of other accessories, namely 360 ° Propeller protectors, charging points, Propeller Holders, DIY Creative Kits and Snap Adapters.
The Mavic Mini has been available for pre-order orders from 30 October 2019 through the store.dji.com site, the official DJI sales outlet online and will be available starting from 11 November.
