DJI Mini 2 – Almost 2 Years Later Review
I like doing these, so we can see how well these electronics are holding up after a couple of years. I did a mouse one and today were going to be looking at the dji mini 2 drone. This one came out not quite two years about a year and a half. Maybe it was november of 2020, so about a year and a half ago, and i just want to show you guys how well this thing is held up throughout the year, so theres a little bit of a spoiler alert there that this drone has done exceptionally well And a lot of times its actually my go to drone even over the dji mavic 3, which i have as well, that it just makes things simple and im excited to show you guys what ive liked about it. Whats held up well about it and give you guys the review along those lines. So with that being said, lets go ahead and just jump right in now. I think this just makes sense to start out with how well this thing has held up externally things like the body, the propellers, etc. Ive crashed this quite a few times and the only real damage that i managed to do was after it fell out of the sky from a user air and tumble through some trees to the ground. Cracking one of the arm mounts a few drops of super glue. Later and it flies as good as new at first glance or use, you may feel that this thin plastic body isnt very durable, but it certainly has surprised me on how well it is held up, so the body has held up well.
But what about the other things? The mechanical parts like the motors, the arm, hinges the gimbal and so on. Well, im happy to say that these have held up very well as well. Gimbal operates smoothly, no binding or jittery movement in the footage. The motors spin very free and strong, with no heavy signs of wear and tear aside from your typical propeller change, the propellers work very well too. The one thing that i thought would start to fail was the arm hinges with the constant folding and unfolding. I figured wires would start to short out. Hinges would start to become loose. That doesnt seem to be the case, at least for now. Now lets talk a little bit about the electronics. The image quality from the mini 2 still blows my mind on how clear it is for such a small sensor. The batteries still perform very well averaging about 20 to 25 minutes per battery. Depending on how i fly and the range, the flight, stability and reliability are still incredible and can easily outperform what the law allows. This just simply means this is a tiny drone and can easily be lost for the visual line of sight. So just remember just because you can fly that far doesnt mean you should so there you have it. Hopefully, you guys have a pretty good understanding of how well this drone is held up through the years through the good and the bad um, and if youre on the on the fence about deciding to get one or not, i certainly would say yes, these drones have Been absolutely stunning, the image quality is a great place to start, especially if youre looking at getting into drones, so i would highly recommend the dji mini 2.
