Engadget Review

The Mavic Mini takes everything DJI has learned about flying cameras and crams it into the smallest drone from the company to date. At just 249 grams, it’s light and incredibly portable. It still flies like a champ and comes with a solid camera for the price. There are a few compromises that might turn off more experiences pilots and photographers, but for the vast majority it’s cheap enough and capable enough to make it a pretty appealing option.
