DJI has unveiled its new Mini 2, an ultra-lightweight drone that packs a 4K camera and a number of advanced features, including OcuSync 2.0 Transmission. One of the drone’s most notable features is its light weight at around half a pound, a weight class that puts the drone in the ‘safest’ category, DJI notes. Among other things, the Mini 2 sports a foldable design that makes it easy to travel with.
The DJI Mini 2 builds upon the foundation laid by the Mavic Mini model, bringing with it enhancements that offer what DJI President Roger Luo says is ‘larger drone performance in an approachable, small design.’ The drone is targeted at beginners, among others, who don’t feel comfortable starting with a large drone.
The drone’s enhancements over the Mavic Mini include better imaging features, flight performance, and much better connectivity for more reliable transmissions over longer distances. In keeping with the ‘beginner’ aspect of the drone, DJI has packed multiple pre-programmed modes into the Mini 2 for different shooting situations.
