Recreational Droning, On (ft. DJI Mini)

Recreational Droning, On (ft. DJI Mini)

My take on the DJI Mini family as a hobbyist, after spending half a year with the second generation DJI Mini 2. How it compares to the original DJI Mavic Mini and the recently released DJI Mini SE, and whether DJI’s back-to-basics line of minimalist drones are the best choice as an introduction to recreational drone flying.

Some aspects are US-centric, discussing FAA requirements for recreational flyers of the DJI Mini family, including the new TRUSTE test, and some considerations if you’re considering getting into UAS flying.

(Footage contains a mix of terrestrial shots from Walden Pond and drone shots from non-Federal/non-State land.)
