The DJI Mavic Mini – First Look

One of my favorite YouTubers did a little preview of the new DJI Mavic Mini, which effectively is the Spark 2.0 – in fact the camera and gimbal looks almost identical to the one on the Spark.

I used to have a DJI Spark until it autonomously decided to start a landing sequence on its own and disconnect from my controller right over some electrical wires because it “thought” an airport was nearby (hint: there was no airport nearby). This new Mavic is particularly interesting because it allegedly weighs less than what the FAA requires for a drone registration. The Mavic Mini might be a good drone for beginners and kids as it lacks some of the fancier technology found in other drones and its price point is well below the Mavic Pro, Parrot Anafi, or Autel Evo.
