DJI’s Mavic Mini weighs a svelte 0.55-pounds, making it just small enough to not require FAA registration requirement, but in terms of features, it’s definitely no slouch. Offering a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor capable of recording 2.7K video at 30fps / 1080p video at 60fps, mounted on a 3-axis motorized gimbal, while its removable Lithium Ion battery is good for 30 minutes of flight time on a single charge.

To design a drone as lightweight, compact yet capable as Mavic Mini was one of the most challenging projects we’ve ever tackled at DJI. Distilling top-of-the-line features into a palm-of-your-hand drone is the culmination of years of work, and we are ecstatic to bring a new class of drone to the DJI lineup,” said DJI President Roger Luo.
