Drones are great for capturing bird’s-eye perspectives by taking overhead videos. But not all drones are easy to carry around. Whether you’re traveling or you’re heading out to a picnic, you probably don’t have a ton of room to pack a drone. The DJI Mavic Mini changes all that. This is a pocket-sized drone that can be unfolded to become a fully-flyable and durable recording drone. The Mavic Mini charges via a micro-USB cable and it comes with a remote control that can easily plug into your smartphone.
The drone itself can fly for 30 minutes on a single charge while using its 12MP camera, which will shoot 2.7K Quad HD video. It also has a 3-axis gimble for improved handling and smooth video recording. To get the most out of it, you can also invest in a backup battery and snap the new battery in at a moment’s notice when a little extra juice is needed. DJI even offers the Mavic Mini DIY Creative Kit that lets users personalize their drones.
