DJI Mini 2 Specification


The DJI Mini 2 is a Multirotors drone that was released by DJI in 5/11/2020.

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 Mini 2 also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The battery capacity inside is 2250 mAh.

The DJI Mini 2 sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 16 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.

With a well above the average maximum range of 10 km, you're guaranteed a long-distance flight. Be assured you'll reach the distance you need, from the comfort of your mobile office, or even your couch, and know that your drone won't just disappear off into the distance.

The drone sits well within an average flight time when compared to other drones, with a maximum flight time of 31 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.

Reviews of the DJI Mini 2


Based on 7 reviews

The DJI Mini 2 builds on the success of the previous Mavic Mini, providing a much better video shoot quality, while retaining the straight out of the pocket flying capability.

If you want a compact, easy to carry, easy to fly drone with 4K video capture, this is currently the best available. It’s great for the novice, and its size and weight mean it never feels intrusive in a small rucksack; equally so when flown outdoors. That $560 is very reasonable for a drone with all these features, too.

Confidence-inspiring features and rock-steady reliability

The DJI Mini 2 excels in every department, from its confidence inspiring flight characteristics and rock-steady reliability to its plethora of in-flight safety tech and brilliant collection of pilot aids. It is right up there will the best small-bodied aerial tripods money can buy.

4K camera for under $500
  • - 4.7
The DJI Mini 2 is the kind of drone we wish we’ve always had. It’s very portable, has a 4K camera, is super light-weight, easy to fly, and has all the best flight features, but costs less than half the price of comparable drones from a few years ago. From beginner to pro pilot, there’s a good reason to consider putting the Mini 2 in your backpack next time you head outside.

The DJI Mini 2 drops some of the more enthusiast-targeted video and imaging options offered by the $800 DJI Mavic Air 2—you don't get a 48MP Quad Bayer camera, obstacle sensors, or other upmarket features. DJI has also updated the camera to 4K, added Raw imaging, and ever so slightly upped flight time per charge. For $50 more than the first version, the DJI Mini 2 is a better entry-level drone, and our Editors' Choice winner. We're rating it a bit lower than the Air 2, but if you're just getting started, and don't want to spend closer to $1,000 on a drone and accessories, the Mini 2 is absolutely worth considering.

This palm-sized 4K drone is in a league of its own
  • - 5
Still in a league of its own, the DJI Mini 2 is the perfect entry-level drone for beginners looking to get to grips with flying, capturing, and editing birds-eye views of beautiful landscapes and cityscapes (where permitted). Whether you opt for the Mavic Mini or the Mini 2 will come down to how much you want that 4K resolution. But whichever you opt for, you won’t be disappointed, as long as you're happy to shoot during the brighter daylight hours.

The compact and lightweight drone gets more flying power and better video quality.
  • - 4
Should you get this or the more expensive Mavic Air? There are three compelling features to the Air, for beginners especially. The big one is obstacle avoidance—the Mini 2 has none. This might be the biggest reason to spend extra money on the Air. The Mini 2 also lacks DJI's ActiveTrack and Point of Interest automated flight modes, which really do help you capture better video with less fuss. The larger camera sensor in the Air also means you can get sharper 48-megapixel images and 4K video at 60 frames per second. That said, if you have some experience flying, don't need the improved video resolution, and just want a highly portable, really-fun-to-fly drone, the Mini 2 is my top pick.

It looks the same, but it flies and shoots much better

All those image quality specs really do matter — but so does the DJI Mini 2’s size. It’s a drone that I never hesitate to toss in my camera bag. The old saying that the best camera is the one you have with you is just as true when that camera is attached to a drone.
