If you are planning to get a DJI imaging drone, you may want to hold out for a little longer because, the major drone maker has something new and interesting coming your way.
Meet the DJI Mavic Mini, the newest in the Mavic imaging drone family and it is super-duper tiny. So tiny that when it is folded down, it fits right on the palm of a grown person’s hand.
It is not just tiny physically, it is lightweight too. Like, super light. So light that it apparently it can skip mandatory FAA registration that was brought back to life back in 2017.
U.S. Federal Aviation Administration mandates that “robotic fliers” weighing 250g or more need to be registered. However, this little fellow here weighs just 249g and logically speaking, it will not required to be registered with FAA in the U.S.
While DJI is still hush hush about the new imaging drone, Canadian Newegg has let the cat out of the bag with a listing on its website.
According to the website, DJI Mavic Mini, or at least the “Fly More Combo” is concerned, boasts 30 minutes of flight time and up to 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) of video transmission in HD.
It further features vision sensor, GPS precise hover, 3-axis gimbal with 2.7K camera and it will comes with a remote controller.
The DJI Mavic Mini Imaging Drone “Fly More Combo” is listed on Newegg.ca for 645.20 Canadian dollars which works out to be around $495 basing on today’s going rate.
