Weighing less than 250 grams the Mini 2 bypasses the law in most countries, meaning you can fly legally without fuss or qualifications. It’s lightweight and smooth frame gives it other benefits too, including easy transportation, quieter flight and less intrusion to bystanders.

In the UK this drone can be flown pretty much anywhere outside of restricted areas and can be flown of people and property which larger drones cannot do.

The level 5 wind resistance stands out with this drone, particularity when comparing it to any other drone in this weight class. This allows you to fly in more weather conditions and higher up without losing peace of mind and gives you confidence, knowing it will not get swept away by the wind. It is very easy and intuitive to control and also comes with ‘quickshots’ which are programed flights that can lock onto an object or person. It can obit or fly away from the subject keeping them centered to guarantee you get that perfect shot. It does not support active track.

With a 31 minute maximum battery life it has one of longest flight times of any consumer drones giving you plenty of time to get all the shots you need.


Using DJI OcuSync 2.0 the Mini 2 can have up to a 10km range in America and 6km outside of America. This is a huge range and far surpasses the legal distances allowed by any country. It is also worth mentioning that the transmission is incredibly clear, which is great for peace of mind.


While the Mini 2 is the most expensive sub 250 gram drone, it out performs all of it competitors in every aspect. It has a perfect balance of size, performance and functionality and at £419 is great value drone.
