Whether you're looking for the best drone for the family, or the best drone as a gift, the Mini 2 drone offers professional features and reliability at a reasonable price.
At some time in the near future, every family might have a drone. Just like the evolution of a smart phone, the smart drone is becoming smaller and smaller. The technology is becoming easier and easier to fly. C'mon, how many dronies did you see of friends this past summer? DJI has shrunk commercial grade drone technology into a sub 250 gram drone that won't be used for hair cuts.
The hardware and technology is much more reliable and fits into a small drone that weighs less than 250 grams. Watch the real time drone feed overlaid with telemetry for miles. Paired with incredible 4k video and 12mp photos the micro drone offers an additional benefit:
If the drone is flown for recreational purposes, it does not have to be registered with the FAA.
The DJI Mini 2 drone offers professional grade remote control transmission range. Most cheap and small drones found online frankly can't fly very far. DJI now offers the Mini 2 drone with technology typically found in drones that cost 4-5x the price of the Mini 2. Occusync 2.0 allows the pilot to have control of the aircraft at significant range. Remember, the drone should always be within your line of sight though...
If you're looking to gift a drone to someone in the family, the Mini 2 allows anyone to try taking flight without names being in a data base. Due to the fact that the Mini 2 only weighs 249 grams, users will not have to register the drone if they fly it for recreational purposes. If you are gifting the drone to a friend, this reduces the barrier to entry. Albeit it does not justify a lack of education on how to fly. We're happy to help educate users on learning where they can fly.
This drone makes a great gift because it simply offers powerful features typically found in expensive aircraft. The drone can fly a great distance and maintain a control signal. While this may make the pilot falsely trust their skill, it also means more "emergencies" will be recoverable. The reliable signal means if the pilot has flown the drone behind trees, the remote will still be connected to the aircraft. Typical sub $500 drones will lose signal and simply crash. With the Mini 2, an educated pilot will be able to navigate away from trouble. GIFT a MINI 2 Here
Just because the drone is below the weight threshold, doesn't mean this drone isn't fully capable of empowering numerous photographers. Have you thought of taking flight? Have you wanted to see what it was like to fly a camera? Are you ready to fly but don't want to waste you money on a crappy drone?. The drone is a great entry point for the photographer as it shots raw photos on a 12mp sensor. Another great reason as why the Mini 2 is the best drone for the family...photographer.
The Mini 2 drone allows photographers to shot raw photos and have more control of their images than most cheaper drones. If you're not familiar with raw photos, the simple benefit is in post production. Raw photos allow users to push the photos, stack the photos and create HDR photos. The photographer can really articulate their style in editing. Raw photography simply allows more editing flexibility.
The Mini 2 is also a phenomenal tool for influencers of Instagram and Snapchat. Although, if someone uses the Mini 2 for commercial purposes (Like if you take 4k video and post it on your instagram channel that sells posts for advertising) you'll need to register the drone, and the pilot will need a Part 107 license. Yet sometimes the greatest gifts can be an intellectual adventures for your little rebels. Maybe the gift of a Mini 2 will motivate the pilot to earn their wings, acquire a Part 107 Certificate from the FAA.
If you're not turning your passion into profit and simply fly for fun... the 4k video is sure to delight any videographer. The Mini 2 simply lowers the barrier to entry once again. The video on the previous mini was sub par to say it best. Yet the Mini 2 shoots 4k video at 100 mbps. More data = better video. For those looking to start filming in the sky, the Mini 2 offers a great entry point. While we wish the Mini 2 had a true attitude flight mode, the Mini 2 still offers much more than any competitor for the price.
You won't find another drone that takes flight with such stability. The drone offers increased creative control for those looking to take to the skies. The occusync remote control system offers reliable control and input from the user. Smooth aerial video has never been this cheap.
It is incredibly exciting to see such powerful technology shrunk down to fit into the Mini 2. When kids dream of taking flight, or the husband simply needs a new hobby the Mini 2 offers a reliable flight experience. When user inputs are reliable and able to transmit long distances (2,000 feet), learning how to fly becomes much easier. Which is another reason why we believe the Mini 2 is the best drone for the family.
Inspiring your kids to learn has never been this easy. Prove us wrong!
Inspire your kids, your wife/husband or even your grandpa/ma/opa/oma/granny. Taking flight isn't as simple as just buying a camera. It requires a little research and a little learning...That is if you don't want to crash. It requires an adventure of learning how to operate a drone and ultimately how to fly. Yet it is incredibly fun to learn how to fly.
The Mini 2 makes learning how to fly much easier for a variety of reasons. With a dedicated remote and reliable remote control, users won't be guessing if they pitched forward or the drone made its own decision. While the Mini 2 is on the low end of price points, there is not another offering that comes close to what the Mini 2 offers. Fly with confidence, make it easier to fly outside and even on slightly windy days. Completing flight drills and missions will be stable and the video won't drop out easily.
Simply put, the Mini 2 make it easier to learn how to fly with confidence.
