Drones have become the go to piece of equipment for film makers and travel enthusiasts who want to capture their couple or family getaway. One of the major drawbacks is the costly prices associated with drones. You may be thinking: “wait a minute I’ve seen drones that cost around $100-$200, that isn’t too bad.” To that I respond with, yes, you can buy a drone that will most likely break on take off and give you pixelated footage. Or… you could make an investment.
Consumer drones can cost around $400 to $2800. While professional camera drones can cost a whopping $5000-$21,000, according to Australia’s leading comparison website Canstar Blue. So what if there was an advanced drone that would cost a fraction of the price of a professional camera drone? “That’s impossible,” you might say. Nothing is impossible, is my response.
I present to you the DJI MINI 2. The smallest drone ever created with a price tag of $749. Well below industry and market price averages for professional camera drones. So what makes this drone so special you might ask? If the price tag wasn’t special enough to have you ordering this technological marvel in the next 10 minutes, then maybe hearing the specs might entice you further.
DJI MINI 2 SPECS:
- Ultralight (249g) & foldable
