The DJI Mini 2 Drone has officially touched down to become one of the least surprising launches in tech history, in recent weeks of spectacular release and unboxings. The new DJI Mini 2 is the successor to last year’s Mavic Mini. In comparison to Mavic Mini, the new Mini 2 has a better image capturing capabilities, more powerful flight performance, and enhanced transmission technology. Let’s know extra about the DJI Mini 2 drone along with its specification, features, Price in Nepal, and its availability.
DJI Mini 2 Drone Features
Design and Controller
DJI Mini 2 weighs around 249 grams, which is what its antecedent Mavic Mini weighs. This makes the drone portable. An individual can also notice a tiny difference in the dimensions. When folded, the new DJI Mini 2 drone measures 138 x 81 x 58mm. Unfolded and with the propellers on, the drone measures 245 x 289 x 56mm. It packs in a 5200mAh battery and may support devices with a maximum length of 92mm.
DJI Mini 2 uses a 1/2.3” CMOS sensor with an effective pixel of 12MP. Users can save images in DNG (RAW) format in addition to the standard JPEG format. Now it can record 4K/30 fps video at 100 Mbps. An amazing feature is that when we shoot in FHD, the drone can zoom up to 4x. As it reduces to just 2x when recording 4K videos. There is a 3-dimensional axis for video stabilization. It comes with the following pre-set QuickShots modes:
- Drone: It allows the drone to fly back and up with the camera tracking the subject. The height limits are 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120 feet.
- Helix: It allows the drone to fly up and away with a spiraling motion around the subject.
- Rocket: Here, the drone flies straight up with the camera focused downward on the subject.
- Boomerang: The drone follows a boomerang-like oval path around the subject.
Companion App and Battery
DJI Mini 2 has also added a companion DJI fly app. Users can now download images and share videos on their smartphones directly without the need of the remote controller at a speed of 20MB/s. Also, they can edit images in the app. There is also a trimmed download feature that lets users trim the video before downloading it.
The 2250mAh LiPo 2S battery in the DJI Mini 2 is rated for 31 minutes for flight time. Which is only better than Mavic Mini’s 30 minutes flight time. Though the drone has a maximum charging capacity of 29W, it comes with a charger that is rated for just 18W.
Flight performance and transmission
The biggest reform in the DJI Mini 2 is the inclusion of OcuSync 2.0, which improves data transmission. Now the DJI Mini 2 has a wide transmission range of 10km. Because of its dual-frequency technology, the drone can switch between two channels to avoid getting affected interference.
