DJI Launches DJI Mini 2, the Perfect Drone for All Abilities
5 November 2020 – Today, DJI, a global leader in civilian drones and creative camera technology, launched DJI Mini 2. The high-performance camera, in the safest drone category, packs impressive new features into a small, portable design, all weighing less than 249 grams.
According to DJI, the Mini 2 is easy to fly and has improved imaging capabilities, powerful flight performance, and enhanced transmission technology for longer and more reliable connection. Supported with a wide array of accessories, DJI Mini 2 users can make the system their own with personalized items and an illuminated display case.
“Mavic Mini was a monumental breakthrough for DJI and for drone pilots across the world, as its unprecedented combination of weight, safety, performance, and overall value became the entry point for countless new drone pilots and fans,” said DJI President, Roger Luo (above). “DJI Mini 2 enhances those key aspects, packing larger drone performance in an approachable, small design in the safest drone category that is perfect for beginners and will also impress more experienced pilots.”
Just like the original Mavic Mini, DJI Mini 2 features a folding design that makes traveling with a drone incredibly easy. In addition, the new drone claims improved flight performance features in comparison to the original version. OcuSync 2.0 transmission technology has now been incorporated. This is responsible for ensuring stable, long distance, and reliable connection between the remote controller and the drone. Dual-frequency technology automatically switches between channels to help against interference.
DJI Mini 2 has a maximum transmission range of 6km, a 200% increase in range compared to that of the original Mavic Mini. Upgraded motors provide 31 minutes of flight time, faster acceleration and speed, along with the ability to withstand winds up to 24mph.
Like all DJI drones, high-grade positioning and vision sensors help Mini 2 hover precisely in place. GPS keeps track of where the drone is while the vision sensors on the bottom map out the ground below it and assist automated landing.
DJI drones offer a range of safety features, including:
- GEO fencing, which keeps drones out of sensitive areas such as airports
- Return to Home, a feature that can be activated so the drone returns to the pilot
- Altitude Lock, an adjustable limit on how high the drone can go.
The new drone is able to capture detailed images with the help of a 1/2.3-inch sensor capable of recording 12-megapixel images and a maximum video resolution of 4K/30fps @100 Mbps. Shake-free, smooth footage is also possible thanks to the 3-axis gimbal, which compensates for drone movement, wind, and more.
