DJI Mini 2 Drone Structural Features:

The DJI Mini 2 drone is an upgraded version that is faster and extra lightweight. This drone has more power against the wind, better resolution, and RAW image capability.

Here are a few key features that stand out in this mini drone compared to its predecessors.


Compact Design and Ultralight:

The DJI Mini 2 is ultralight with an approximate take-off weight of 249 grams. Furthermore, its design is incredibly compact as it fits perfectly on the palm of your hand.

Even though Mini 2 looks the same as its predecessor the Mavic Mini, the former is exceptionally small and light and therefore does not require registration with the FAA.

The most prominent difference in terms of design between the Mini 2 and Mavic Mini is the controller. The Mini 2’s controller has an extended arm to hold your smartphone at the top while it's twice the size of Mini’s controller.



Foldability and Stability Performance:

The DJI Mini 2 drone is your ultimate small lightweight drone that is both easy to fly and sturdy. It weighs as light as an apple and is incredibly stable and nimble like the other drones from DJI.


When it comes to foldability, the Mini 2 can fold up to fit the palm of your hand. It has a folding-arm design that makes it about the size of a soda can when folded.

This feature makes the Mini 2 incredibly easy to travel with as it can be carried around in any backpack.

When it comes to flying, the Mini 2 offers a total flight time of about 31 minutes while it can hover motionlessly in the air.


Compared to the older model, the Mini 2’s powerful motor gives the drone impressive resistance against crosswinds of up to 24 mph.


DJI Mini 2 Camera’s Highlighted Features:

This drone is definitely an upgrade when it comes to photography. The DJI Mini 2 features a 12 MP 1/2.3-inch sensor along with a 24mm EFL and f/2.8 sensor. It should be noted here that it has DNG (RAW) format available.


The camera has an improved dynamic range and Auto Exposure Bracketing that can take up to three shots: one normal, one underexposed, and one overexposed.

One of the most notable features of the camera is the zoom. The Mini 2 offers 4x digital zoom when recording. If we talk specifically, then you get 4x zoom while filming at 1080p with a 2x lossless zoom. With 2.7K you get 3x lossy zoom while with 4K you have 2x lossy zoom.



4K Video Shoot:

Even though the Mini 2 and Mavic Mini drones are considered the same but what sets the former apart is the improved video quality. You can now shoot 4K/30 frames per second video with your Mini 2 drone.

The footage is of superior quality and gives a dynamic and professional touch to your footage. Not only that but it can also write data at a rate of 100 Mbps to the MicroSD card which is far more than Mavic Mini’s 40 Mbps.



Raw Image Capability:

Many photographers and videographers would love to tweak and edit their footage before it's saved. That would be great if your camera shoots RAW and this is exactly what the DJI Mini 2 offers.

With the help of this feature, you can fully control the quality of your image in post-processing. Another appealing feature you might like is the Trimmed Download. This handy feature allows you to cut and edit a segment of a long video and later download it.



Intelligent Functions:

The Mini 2’s camera offers a variety of intelligent photography features such as 3x3 panoramas where three images are stitched to give a wide-angle shot.

There are three different types of panoramas that you can shoot with the help of this drone. This includes 180, sphere, and Wide.

For a sweeping landscape shot, you can use a 180-degree shot that captures seven images. For a spherical image, the Sphere captures up to 26 images and stitches them together.

Finally, the Wide type captures nine shots that are stitched together into a large square image.


The drone also features one-tap QuickShots along with Boomerang for variation. Another feature that will add something extra to your footage is the 4K Hyperlapse.

All this amazing photography and videography maintain smoothness and stability with the help of the 3-axis gimbal that keeps the camera stabilized.



OcuSync 2.0 Transmission:

Staying connected to your mini drone over long distances is something every pilot craves but how long is good enough? Compared to the Mavic Mini, Mini 2 offers an astounding 10 km range which is way more than Mavic’s.

Due to this technology, the controller no longer needs to communicate through Wi-Fi. This helps in doubling the maximum effective range up to 6.1 miles.


With the help of OcuSync, the Mini 2 drone can adjust automatically between two frequencies (2.4 or 5.8 GHz) and hop on the strongest connection.


The Fly More Combo Accessories:

The Fly More Combo offers additional accessories which include a wall adapter, a short USB-C to USB-A charging cable, a three-bay USB-C charging dock, and three batteries.

It also comes along with the main adaptor, a quality carry case, three sets of spare screws and props, and a Propeller Holder for protective grip. If we talk about the charging hub then it doubles as a power bank.
