Im pretty sure this guy is the absolute best drone you can get for a beginner, so the mini se is 299 thats an absolute steal. There isnt anything in this price range. They can compete with it. It has a 4 000 meter range, a great 2.7 k camera on a real three axis gimbal. It has the dji smarts and technology that you grow to love with most of these other drones. Uh did, i already say that theres only 300 bucks. It is an absolute steal. The range on this thing is two and a half miles. This is a great beginner drone. If you want to get into aerial photography, plus it weighs less than 250 grams. That means you dont have to register full review of this thing.
