DJI has now rolled out a high-performance camera drone that weighs less than 249 grams. Known as DJI Mini 2, this drone is easy to fly, with improved imaging capabilities, powerful flight performance, and significantly enhanced transmission technology for longer and more reliable connection. Supported with a wide array of fun, safe, and creative accessories, DJI Mini 2 users can make the system their own with personalized items or show it off with the illuminated display case.
“DJI Mini 2 enhances those key aspects, packing larger drone performance in an approachable, small design in the safest drone category that is perfect for beginners and will also impress more experienced pilots,” said DJI President, Roger Luo.
On the design front, DJI Mini 2 features the lightweight system that adds minimal weight to the bag and can easily be brought with you in case the opportunity to fly arises. This Mini 2 drone comes with OcuSync 2.0 transmission technology for ensuring stable, long distance, and reliable connection between the remote controller and the drone. With the help of the 1/2.3-inch sensor capable of recording 12MP images and a maximum video resolution of 4K/30fps @100 Mbps, DJI Mini 2 helps you take shake-free, smooth footage because of the class-leading 3-axis gimbal that compensates for drone movement, wind, and more.
While recording in 1080p resolution, pilots can get closer to their subject without actually having to move the drone thanks to the 4X Zoom (2X lossless in quality) option. Pre-programmed intelligent modes mean the drone does the hard work of capturing beautiful footage with set movements and imaging features. Interestingly, upgraded motors enables 31 minutes of flight time, faster acceleration and speed, along with the ability to withstand winds up to 24mph.
According to the company, “DJI Mini 2 was made to be fun to fly, simple to operate, and safe for everyday use, whether that is daily life or an exciting adventure. A live feed from the drone’s camera is sent to your mobile phone so that you can see exactly where Mini 2 is and what it sees. Simplified buttons and functions keep things streamlined and easy to understand compared to more advanced drones.”
Moreover, high-grade positioning and vision sensors help Mini 2 hover precisely in place. GPS technology keeps track of where the drone is while the vision sensors on the bottom map out the ground below it and assist automated landing. Some of these features include GEO fencing that keeps drones out of sensitive areas like airports. Return to Home is a feature that can be activated so the drone returns to the pilot. Besides this, Altitude Lock is an adjustable limit on how high the drone can go.
DJI Mini 2 helps you make your content stand out with just a tap thanks to these pre-set modes including QuickShots, Dronie, Helix, Rocket, Circle, Boomerang, Panoramas, Sphere, 180-degree and Wide-Angle, etc. Using DJI Mini 2, your handset can connect directly to the drone without the remote controller, and after capturing that shareable footage, download images at a high-speed rate of 20 MB/s once landed safely.
