DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Introduction

The release of the successor to the Mavic Mini came as a surprise to many, as only a year had passed since the release of the newly minted model, and the potential of the drone weighing up to 250 grams for the most part matched the potential of full-sized quadcopters, which allowed the novelty immediately after the release to become the best in its niche. For such an early upgrade, we should be indebted to DJI CEO Frank Wang. According to an insider, Frank was extremely haunted by the quality of the video provided by the drone, so he had to hastily improve it.

DJI Mini 2 is the second, heavily modified version of its predecessor, which received just a “nuclear” potential for a GPS drone weighing less than 250 grams, from which novice users will undoubtedly be delighted, and photo / video shooting professionals will receive a powerful lightweight tool for realizing the best angles from air without problems with UAV registration. In general, as it always happens after the next DJI announcement, the competitors are tense again. By tradition, let’s start with the key features of the unexpected news.

Notes and recommendations

Notes and recommendations:

1. Standard aircraft weight (including battery, propellers and microSD card) is 242 grams. Actual product weight may vary. In some countries and regions, drone registration is not required. Check local regulations and laws before use. These characteristics were determined during tests carried out with the latest firmware version. Updating the firmware may increase performance, so it is highly recommended to update the firmware to the latest version.

2. Due to local policies and regulatory restrictions, the use of the 5.8 GHz frequency band may be restricted or prohibited in some countries, including Japan, USA, Israel, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. When flying in these areas, use the 2.4 GHz frequency band. Always check local regulations and laws before use as they may change over time.

3. The specification of the maximum flight range is determined by a strong and stable radio connection, and not by the capacity of the drone’s battery. This only applies to the maximum one-way flight range. Specifications were achieved in an open environment without interference. Monitor the recommended return time messages in the DJI Fly app during your flight. Check the current radio access standards in different countries and regions:
FCC: USA, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Chile, Colombia, Puerto Rico and other regions;
SRRC: mainland China;
CE: UK, USA, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Macau, New Zealand, UAE and other regions; MIC: Japan.

4. All data for each standard was tested in open areas without interference.

Lightweight solution with no registration required

How lightweight is the DJI Mini 2? It weighs less than 249 grams, which is comparable to the weight of a medium-sized apple, and it also fits in the palm of your hand. The portable Mini 2 is the perfect travel companion that will revolutionize the way you capture life’s best moments.

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Small but powerful

With intuitive and advanced features packed into a portable frame, DJI Mini 2 gives you complete freedom of action anywhere. Whether you’re shooting on a deserted beach or capturing the details of a fun-filled family vacation, the Mini 2 can handle it all.

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Note! The takeoff weight of the drone is indicated taking into account the battery, propellers and microSD memory card. Always check local laws and regulations before starting. Use caution when flying in crowded areas. Remember – safety is paramount!

Increased performance

Without exaggeration, there is great potential in its small size. With a maximum battery life of 31 minutes, the DJI Mini 2 gives you more than enough time to capture the perfect shot.

Flight angles increased in all modes, increased max. speed up to 57.6 km/h (predecessor: 46.8 km/h). Mini 2 can withstand wind speeds of 8-10 m/s (predecessor wind resistance: no more than 8 m/s) and take off at a maximum altitude of 4000 meters (predecessor: 3000 m). Which means, no matter how dynamic the flight is, your footage will always be stable, whether the drone is flying along a windy coastline or high above an alpine forest.

It is noted that the maximum flight time was achieved in calm weather at a constant flight speed of 17 km/h.

OcuSync 2.0

This is the coolest upgrade in this version. The Mini 2 features OcuSync 2.0, the top video streaming technology of today, which provides excellent anti-jamming performance and allows you to stream high-definition video streams up to 10 km away, giving you the ability to fly farther and see clearer.

It is noted that all the final data was obtained in an unobstructed area, without interference and in accordance with the requirements of the FCC standard. The maximum flight range specification is an indicator of a reliable and stable radio link. Always follow local rules and regulations and fly the aircraft within line of sight unless otherwise permitted.

Note! The declared potential is determined by a powerful and stable radio connection, and not by the capacity of the drone’s battery. Max. a range of 10 km is the maximum flight range in one direction, without taking into account the return to the take-off point! The range in range was achieved in an open environment without interference.

4K camera

By the will of fate, the second coolest upgrade affected the quality of the drone shooting. Mini 2 got the ability to shoot in 4K mode (predecessor camera: 2.7K). Now a 12-megapixel camera mounted in a 3-axis mechanical gimbal provides 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. The tandem delivers stunning image quality that remains consistently smooth, no matter how fast you fly.

Zoom

A nice bonus for this model. It is important to note that the zoom factor for each video mode is different. For example, 2x zoom is available for 4K mode, 3x zoom for 2.7K mode, the declared 4x zoom is available only for FHD mode.

And with the advent of the new firmware v01.02.0000, the possibility of zooming appeared for the photo mode. More details can be found here.

Quickshots

The hallmark of DJI foldable drones is automatic flight modes and QuickShots shooting. Each of the five available modes allows the user to record a short professional-level video in a few taps, which later can also be easily shared on social networks. networks. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced user, the DJI Fly app will help you achieve impressive results, complete with soundtracks and filters.

Intelligent Photo Optimization

The DJI Fly app offers smart built-in photo optimization. The app automatically improves the quality of images after they’re uploaded, bringing out vibrant colors and details in every shot you take. This feature will allow the user to share their best content with the community faster.

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Automated control

All the basic actions of the Mini 2 drone are automated, thanks to which the beginner can easily master the first basics of piloting, and for the advanced user, these functions provide a more rational and safer work. When the sky is your playground, the possibilities are endless.

Auto functions

  • Intelligent return to takeoff point (RTH or Return To Home; Automatically activated on loss of connection and insufficient power, or manually from the remote control)
  • Takeoff and landing (drone takes off and lands in auto mode)
  • Hold position (if you release the control sticks, the aircraft will hover and hold its position regardless of external factors such as wind)

Note! To ensure the most accurate sensor positioning, the takeoff surface must be non-reflective and visible. Under optimal illumination, accurate touch positioning can be achieved within a height range of 0.5 to 30 m. The vertical and horizontal touch positioning accuracy is ± 0.1 m.

Control

The Mini 2 can be controlled using a standard DJI RC231 remote control (like the Mavic Air 2; included by default) that works in tandem with a smartphone (iOS 10.0 and up or Android 6.0 and up).

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

DJI Smart Controller support

Also with the arrival of a new firmware (v.01.03.0000) control of the Mini 2 has also become possible with the help of the DJI Smart Controller universal control equipment, the best today, the manufacturability and functionality of which have already been appreciated by all advanced users.

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Food

The second version of Mavic Mini is powered by a lighter (Mini 2/Mini 1 battery weight: 86.2/100 grams), but at the same time a slightly more productive intelligent rechargeable 2S LiPo battery, with a capacity of 2250 mAh (predecessor battery capacity: 2400 mAh) with voltage 7.7V (predecessor battery voltage: 7.2V) and 17.32Wh (predecessor battery capacity: 17.28Wh).

DJI Mini 2. Capture your moments in flight

Provides max. flight time 31 minutes (max. predecessor time: 30 minutes). In practice, the average flight duration of the Mini 2 was about 25-27 minutes (max. practical flight time of the predecessor: 25-27 minutes), which is generally the norm for multi-mode operation of a GPS drone.

The interchangeability of batteries between models is partially excluded by the developer. It means that due to the design features of the batteries, the battery from the Mini 2 is not suitable for powering the Mavic Mini predecessor, but at the same time, the predecessor’s battery gets up and works without problems with the modified version of the Mini 2. True, as practice has shown, such a tandem does not affects the flight time, except for the overestimated flight weight of the drone, which in this case will be already – 257 grams (excluding the MicroSD card), which in some countries (including the World) obliges the owner to register the UAV (more details here ).

Declared in the specification max. a flight time of 31 minutes was achieved while flying in calm air at a steady speed of 16.92 km/h.

Direct download and instant editing

For the fastest possible interaction with the captured content, the developer has implemented three completely new key features in the new Mini 2:

QuickTransfer

When the Mini 2 is near your smartphone, the DJI Fly mobile app automatically recognizes and connects to the aircraft, and syncs selected photos and videos at 20MB/s.

Trimmed Download

With this new feature, you can easily cut a video clip for editing and uploading. Hunting for your favorite shot or worrying about running out of storage is a thing of the past.

Imaginative Templates

The intuitive DJI Fly app editor includes a diverse set of creative templates. Flying, shooting, editing and sharing can be done almost instantly, allowing you to create and share them on the go.

Claimed max. speed – 20 MB / s is provided when the drone operates exclusively in the 5.8 GHz frequency band. When using the QuickTransfer function in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the maximum download speed will already be 6 MB / s.

Fly Spots

Q. How often do DJI Mini 2 propellers need to be replaced? And how to do it?

A. Propellers should be inspected before each flight for cracks, wear, deformation, breakage and loosening of bolted connections (meaning the constant self-loosening of the mounting bolts). If any of these facts are present, the propellers should be replaced. Follow the instructions in the owner’s manual to properly replace the propellers. For installation, use the supplied screwdriver. Remove two blades by first unscrewing the fastening bolts on one beam, then replace the propellers with new ones from the same package using new bolt fasteners. When installing propellers, pay attention to the fact that propellers with marks must be installed on motors that are located on beams with similar marks, and propellers without marks must be installed on motors that are located on beams without marks. Before each takeoff, make sure the propellers are securely fastened and the drone’s arms are set to the maximum flight state.
