Reasons To Buy The New DJI Mini 2 Drone

You’ve probably seen some leaks. The waiting is done. You can now purchase the latest DJI Mini 2. Should you? It depends on what you’re looking for. We’ve put together 10 reasons you may think about buying this awesome drone.


I’ve flown the first Mavic Mini on a few occasions. I was impressed by it as an amazing product at a reasonable price it has a lot of technology that was developed from other models in the DJI range. This 2.7K video was amazing in a package of that is of a size that I could see as excellent overall colour precision and clarity. While a strong breeze might send that small drone to twitching but the gimbal software functioned extremely well, resulting in the most stable video that was a stark contrast to the turbulent flight.

However, things are always improved. Pilots have long wished for higher resolution and more power to combat winds, and also the ability to capture images in RAW.

What’s new?

Well, quite a bit. We’ll be able to do the video review in a minute Let’s review of what I consider to be the main reasons the brand new Mini 2 is a great purchase at just 449 dollars for its base version, and 599 dollars to buy Fly More Combo. Fly More Combo.

We all love lists, so let’s take a look at My Top 10 Reasons to believe that Mini 2 Mini 2 is pretty awesome.

4K 30 FPS Video

2.7K was excellent. 4K is much better. Not just any 4K. This machine can write data directly to your MicroSD memory card with a speed at 100 Mbps. The Mavic Mini’s original maximum bitrate for video is 40 Mbps. This is a lot of data, and can carry all that amazing high-quality video directly to your memory card. For reference I shoot using Fujifilm XT3 – which is an excellent camera and it’s got the same 100Mbps data rate. In a tiny bag that fits into your palm? Absolutely amazing.
Video in 4K – yay! !

The size of the sensor hasn’t changed – it’s 1/2.3 inches – however, they’ve managed, it’s likely to add more pixels into it to create amazing 4K video.

2. RAW Image

It shoots in RAW! For those who like to modify your images using the freedom that comes with an RAW file may go off the rails. (And If you’ve never had the pleasure of working using RAW you’ll find plenty of information in the file which allows you to be in control of your images when you post-process it.) The sensor’s size hasn’t changed, it’s 1/2.3″.

3. More Power

Yeah, baby. We placed the DJI Mini 2 into Sport Mode and let it go. It’s incredibly fast for a drone of this size astonishingly so. The video will provide a glimpse of it however, until you see it zoom past overhead it’s hard to tell you how much power this drone has. Simply put, it’s fantastic. The brand new Mini 2 can hold its own against winds of up to 24 miles per hour.

4. Zoom, Zoom, Zoom…

Since it’s the Mini 2 shoots 4K video it lets you choose zooming into the 1080p video when shooting.

1080p gives you 4x Zoom: 2x lossless zoom plus 2x lossy zoom
2.7K – 3x lossy zoom
4K – 2x lossy zoom

With 4K you have additional Zoom options

5. Longer Flight Time

The brand new Mavic Mini can defy gravity for up to 31 minutes with just one battery. It’s true that a skeptic may be thinking: “But that’s only one second more than the first Mavic Mini!” That’s true. But keep in mind that the Mini 2 has more power. This means that the motors need more energy. Therefore, creating a stronger machine that weighs the same yet can fly for a minute more is quite impressive.

6. OcuSync 2.0

How far could you take on the Mini 2 and still remain connected? The answer? A staggering 10 kilometers that’s a 150 percent improvement over the initial Mavic Mini. We’re not sure who is able to see that…so you’d be in violation of the law in many countries flying beyond the Visual Lines of Sight. But, it’s an indication of how strong C2 is. C2 connection is. It’s is a great thing to be aware of.
Fly away, sweet one You’ll be connected for up to 10 km

OcuSync 2.0 is, by the way, functions by constantly determining the frequency (2.4 or 5.8 GHz) provides the most reliable connection, and then hopping onto the most powerful. It’s a great feature to have.

7. Upgraded Remote

Mini 2 Mini 2 comes with what is believed to be the same remote that comes in the Mavic Air 2. We prefer the ergonomics and you can bet the OcuSync goodness is in the tiny box. We think this is an important improvement over the Mavic Mini.
Mini 2 is a remote that has been upgraded. Mini 2 comes with an upgraded remote.

8. Better Propellors

A few Mavic Mini owners ran into issues where the vital shape of the propellers on certain models could change when they were in storage. This meant that they weren’t able to provide enough lift, which can really shake you in the event of a flight that is not at your preferred location. The latest version seems to use different props (they are different models with a different number) and we’re guessing that they are going to make this issue obsolete.

9. Panoramas

Mini 2 Mini 2 shoots three different kinds of panos. Sphere wide, 360 and wide. What’s the different?

Sphere collects 26 images and stitches them into the spherical image
180 takes seven photos for the most expansive panorama shot
Wide is a square image made up of nine stitched photos

10. QuickTransfer

It’s a fresh and faster method to transfer your images via drones to your smartphone through WiFi. The transfer speed is 20 Mbps and images will be improved as you download them.
