Design

The DJI Mini 2 brings with it a substantial number of upgrades and new features – but a design overhaul isn’t one of them and I’m glad this is the case. With its lightweight structure coming in at just shy of 249 grams, the Mini 2 is incredibly easy to carry around, but this portability never feels as though its affected the drone’s structural integrity. This is still a sturdy device, albeit in a smaller form factor.

Much like the Mavic Mini, the Mini 2’s arms are tucked away by default for easy storage, and an included belt keeps the whole thing together when not in use. When the time comes to fly, it’s a simple case of removing the belt and then extending the arms in the correct sequence (this is all labeled on the device, so it’s near impossible to make a mess of things).

The only key change on the Mini 2 itself is that it’s finally made the jump to USB-C, doing away with the long-dated Micro-USB port. If you’re looking for innovation, it’s best to turn your attention to the DJI Mini 2’s updated controller, which feels a world away from its predecessor.

Powerful Performance

It may be small, but this drone packs a ton of power. With a max battery life of 31 minutes, DJI Mini 2 grants more than enough time to compose the perfect shot. Mini 2 can resist level 5 winds and take off at a max altitude of 4000 meters (2.5 miles), so your footage is stable even when flying along a windy coastline or high above an alpine forest.

Video and image quality

  • The highest video quality has been bumped from 2.7K to 4K 30fps
  • Pictures can be shot in RAW, offering more versatility in editing
  • Stabilization is fantastic, even on windier days

If there was a chip in the Mavic Mini’s near-perfect crown, it was undoubtedly that the device capped video recording at a measly 2.7K. Luckily this is no longer an issue, as the DJI Mini 2 can now record at up to 4K 30fps, meaning that it no longer feels as if you’re missing out by opting for DJI’s entry-level drone.

The Mini 2 is now able to do justice to whichever location you’re in. For instance, one flying session was during a sunny day and another was on a cold morning clouded by fog, but on both occasions the video quality was sharp and stable, giving me the chance to extract any high-resolution stills images from the recordings.

The increased resolution also comes with the ability of 4x zoom during filming, letting you get even closer to faraway subjects that might lie beyond the aforementioned 6km cap. While it’s a nice feature to have, in testing I found the act of controlling the drone itself to be so entertaining that I rarely turned to the zoom function as a necessity.

For budding photographers, you’ll be glad to know that the DJI Mini 2 can now shoot pictures in RAW, as well as JPEG. This allows for far more flexibility in the editing process, which can go a long way to perfecting the type of grand landscape shot that drones excel in.

If you’re a complete newcomer to the drone experience then it is worth pointing out that, for obvious reasons, the DJI Mini 2 doesn’t record audio. It’s not the worst problem in the world, however, as it can easily be circumvented with a lapel mic.

There are no bones about it, the DJI Mini 2 is the best entry-level drone you can buy right now. The higher-priced drones in DJI’s range will no doubt offer a more robust experience, but for the average consumer – someone looking to buy their first drone or simply expand their vlogging capabilities to the skies – the DJI Mini 2 has everything you need.

Even though there’s a serious price hike to be had over its predecessor, the jump to 4K and the new 6km distance cap make it well worth the upgrade. We do recommend however picking up the Fly More combo pack, as the additional batteries will allow you to make the most out of the Mini 2, and the included carry case is just handy for transporting all the necessary components.
