DJI has launched the Mavic Mini, the lightest and smallest foldable drone to date. The Mavic Mini weighs 249 grams, making it portable and easy to fly.

You will be able to fly the Mavic Mini up to 50 feet and in the attached premises in India without any registration.

The speed with the support of the wind is measured near sea level.
Despite its compact form factor, the DJI Mavic Mini has a maximum flight time of 20 minutes. Time is measured when flying at 14kph in airless conditions. The maximum service limit is 3000 meters above sea level. Maximum wind speed resistance is 20 degrees in P mode and C mode, with a maximum tilt angle of 30 degrees in 8 mode / s mode. The drone operates in a temperature range of 0 ° to 40 ° C. It supports both GPS and GLONASS for precise positioning.
