Product Overview

DJI Mavic Mini has all the strong points of DJI Mavic Pro, but in a smaller package that makes it easier to take with you. It’s the perfect drone for adventurers who want to capture videos and photos from perspectives that go high overhead or stay close to the ground. Fly at up to 13 m/s with a max range of 4 km and 30 minutes of battery life so you can capture more than just a fleeting moment. It can also record video in 2.7K resolution. The most exciting part? The camera on this drone takes 12MP stills.

The drone has a one-click button to start recording, making it easy to capture the moment. You can also take photos while recording video. The remote has a low-battery warning and will land on its own to recharge when it’s almost out of power. The drone has sensors that allow it to hover accurately in any condition, even in wind. It also has an obstacle avoidance system and can be flown manually for more experienced pilots. The controller has a built-in display that shows battery life, height, speed, and more.

DJI Mavic Mini Specification


The DJI Mavic Mini is a Multirotors drone that was released by DJI in 30/10/2019.

A multirotor drone is a multiple propeller, vertical lift drone. These drones are more maneuverable due to their flight profile, being able to fly much closer to buildings and other obstacles. Multi-rotor drones like the DJI Mavic Mini also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The battery capacity inside is 2600 mAh.

The DJI Mavic Mini sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 13 m/s. This might not be a bad thing though, so it really depends on why you're looking at buying the drone. If you're happy with a slightly slower drone then this one could be what you're after.

Falling inside a decent flight range for drones at 4 km, you'd be safe to fly it outside of line-of-sight. You won't be disappearing to the other side of the city, but you will get more than enough range for average and above-average usage.

The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 30 min. This flight time will be plenty of the average user, and should give you more than enough time between charges. You can always bring an extra battery to swap out between flights, or just a battery pack to charge it up as you go should you need a little more flight time.

Great value
  • - 4.5
While this mini drone offers far fewer features than we are accustomed from our drones that cost more than a thousand dollars, the price tag really puts everything into perspective. At $400, the DJI Mavic Mini is a great value.

The DJI Mavic Mini, DJI’s latest drone, is its smallest, cheapest and best.
  • - 4.5
While pricier DJI drones have more features and a higher resolution camera, the Mavic Mini offers enough endurance and ease-of-use, and a compelling price tag. It's the drone to get when you just want to fly something around.

DJI Mavic Mini Review
  • - 3
The Mavic Mini isn't the home run that many aspiring pilots and DJI had hoped for. There's room for some improvement via software updates, though—perhaps we'll see more imaging and video control added to the DJI Fly app in the future.

DJI's latest small drone is lightweight, small enough to fit in your pocket, and tons of fun to fly.
  • - 4
Still, considering the price and the size of the Mavic Mini, this is the best drone for most people, but they're a hassle to pack, a pain to carry, and so loud you're almost guaranteed to offend someone. The Mavic Mini eliminates the first two problems completely. It's small enough to throw in a little bag and carry with you all the time. It's still somewhat louder than I'd hoped, but it's the least intrusive drone I've flown. If you keep it about 50 feet up in the air, you'll hardly notice it.

The Mavic Mini is still a fine drone if you don't need 4K video
  • - 4.5
If you don't need to shoot 4K video, the Mavic Mini remains one of the best beginner-friendly drones you can buy. It's since been succeeded by the 4K-shooting DJI Mini 2, but the Mavic Mini otherwise offers a very competitive blend of portability, image quality, price and convenience. It weighs no more than five golf balls, lasts a solid 30 minutes in the air, and fits into a large jacket pocket when folded down. Only that lack of 4K video and object-tracking powers show its age.

An ultra light hi-res camera drone for one and all
  • - 5
DJI Mavic Mini is yet another example of DJI's mastery of the drone market. This is the loveliest, most desirable little camera-equipped drone ever to snap from the air. Smooth, fast, eminently controllable and stupefyingly small, DJI Mavic Mini shoots exceptional 2.7K video and impressive 12mp stills while costing no more than a half-decent compact camera. You WILL want one.
