This Ultra-Compact 8.8oz Quad HD Camera Drone Is DJI’s Smallest Ever

DJI is undoubtedly the industry leader when it comes to consumer flying drones. But, much to the chagrin of the brand and their customers, government regulations regarding where and when their drones can be used have been a pesky thorn in everyone’s side. But DJI just found a workaround; they’ve created a drone small enough that it doesn’t have to be registered with the FAA.

Called the Mavic Mini, this micro drone weighs just 249 grams (around 8.8 ounces) in total — roughly the same as a smartphone. And that makes it their smallest offering ever. Yet it is still packed with handy and easy-to-use features and capabilities — like an onboard HD camera that can capture both 12MP photos and 2.7K Quad HD videos, video transmission at up to 2.5 miles away, and a 30-minute flight time per charge. It’s also compatible with DJI’s intuitive Fly app for easy smartphone control, comes with detachable propeller guards, and even boasts autonomous flight — so you can go and adventure while the Mavic Mini does all the camera work. Perhaps best of all, it costs just $399.
