For comparison, the DJI Mavic Mini is just slightly larger and heavier than most smartphones. It also clocks in at 249g making it the smallest drone. The weight and size allow it to consume less power in flight and easier to fit regulations in certain where heavier drones aren’t allowed for civilians.

The Mavic Mini has a 12MP ½.3” camera with a 24mm f/2.8 lens on a 3-axis gimbal that can shoot video of up to 2720×1530 at 30p or 1920×1080 at 60p at 40Mbps bitrate. Because it is geared for beginners, the Mavic Mini doesn’t have 4K recording or other features like slow motion, flat profile, etc.

The new drone has a 2400mAh battery which allows users to fly it for 30 minutes.
