DJI Debuts A New Lightweight Drone
Popular drone maker DJI has debuted a new drone, this time a lightweight one that weighs just 249 grams. The new drone, named the Mavic Mini, is the smallest and lightest drone DJI has ever made, and costs $400 (for the standard package; that is the drone itself, one battery, a remote controller, extra propellers and all required tools and wires). There’s a higher package, costing $500, that includes all the components of the standard version plus a Two-Way charging Hub, three batteries, three sets of extra propellers, a propeller cage and a carrying case. Already available for pre-order, the Mavic Mini will begin shipping on the 11th of November.
The Mavic Mini comes with several features that are standard for DJI drones. They include a high-grade camera that’s able to capture footage at a resolution of up to 2.7k, Wi-Fi transmission to enable stable control and an HD live feed when in use, and GPS receivers and downward visual sensors to detect the ground below the drone during flight. The Mavic Mini’s camera is supported by a three-axis motorized gimbal, ensuring footage is smooth and of good quality.
To not say much, the Mavic Mini is sort of a budget drone with an appeal centered on being lightweight. The video below, made by DJI, gives a better visual feel on the new drone, which delivers 30 minutes of flight time on full charge:
