The dji mini 2 was made for the same sub 250 grams target market that dji mini 3 will probably hit, but, unlike other competitors that make these lighter drones as entry class into the drone world, the dji mini 2 was made for beginners and experienced pilots. Looking to do professional, photography and videography and the best part is that being a sub 250 gram, drone doesnt require you to register with the federal aviation administration. Dji mini 2 was most notably also released with the ocusync.
This was usually reserved for the high end drones, like the mavic series by dji. Ocusync, delivers more range and a more precise video feed over these longer distances and is much more reliable than using a wi fi connection, which can become spotty at distances. Ocusync operates on radio frequencies and has already proved its worth in other dji drones. Its low latency can transmit 1080p or 720p video previews directly to your phone. The battery life on the mini 2 is also still pretty impressive. With a rating of 31 minutes on a single charge, a 2 250 amma lipo battery pack powers. It users reported that real life flight times are around 27 minutes, which is still impressive for a drone. This size dont worry, though the dji fly, control app will warn when the battery is on the edge of dying out, so you can safely land the drone. The flight controller on the mini 2 is also excellent, as it looks pretty identical to the controller on the mavic air 2.. You can mount your phone on top of your controller, making it more convenient and comfortable to fly. The mini 2 has a fantastic camera on it. It comes with a 1 by 2.3 inch, cmos 12 megapixel sensor like the original dji mini, but this one is capable of shooting a 4k video. It also comes with a digital zoom feature that promises to provide lossless recordings at 2.7, k or 1080p, but will lower video quality.
If you try it in 4k, the camera itself is mounted to the front on top of a 3 axis gimbal, and it is perfectly stable during routine flights. The images you take will be saved in either jpgs or raw format. The raw format images may look more washed out in colors, but retain more data and visual fidelity. Dji mini 2 also comes with a pre programmed high speed sports mode and a low speed cinema option. Depending on what you need. The max speed on the sports mode is 16 meters per second, with a max ascent. Speed of 5 meters per second, which is impressive for a small drone like the dji mini 2.. Faster motors, also mean that the mini 2 can hold out on its own again. High wind speeds: it has a max wind speed resistance range of 8.5 to 10.5 meters per second, but it is also essential to keep in mind that it is a tiny and lightweight drone. It is not designed to withstand the wind speeds that larger drones can fly against, so dont be a maverick with the mini 2.. The mini 2 also comes with both gps and glonass positioning systems, so you can rest assured that you can track the drone properly during flight. The flight control app shows the location of the aircrafts last known position and will flash lights and make sounds if the mini 2 is still running. This is just in case. You cant find your drone after something goes wrong when the mini 2 is folded, it has a minimal form factor and can be tucked away in your pocket, but its always advisable to put it in a safe pack.
The mini 2 comes with a single battery pack. A spare battery will cost you 45 dollars per pack. The dji mini 2 will set you back 449. If you are getting a brand new one. The fly more bundles will set you back 599, but you will be getting two additional batteries: a multi battery charger, a carrying case and some other goodies. It is still considerably cheaper than the mavic air 2, which is priced at 800, but mavic. Air 2 has a lot of other stuff going for it, but for someone waiting for the mini 3 to come out, this is the perfect drone you should be using. In the meantime, i hope you enjoyed the video.
