Straight up, I am new to drones and the only drones I have ever used prior to the DJI Mavic Mini are a few cheap toys that my son received for Christmas a few years ago. I could not fly those toy drones to save my life, and crashed every one of them. So with that experience behind me, I thought a relatively expensive drone (compared to a toy drone) would be a disaster of epic proportions, but I took the plunge anyway.
This review is not a full featured break down of the DJI Mavic Mini’s specifications or features as there plenty of those available online elsewhere. Instead it is a review from the point of view of a novice taking the plunge into the world of drones.
So, after my previous experience with flying drones, I figured I would put the hard yards in and learn to fly the DJI Mavic Mini in a local park before taking it away on my family holiday to Kangaroo Island where I hoped to fly it over the stunning beaches that Kangaroo Island has littered around it’s coast line.
After watching many videos on YouTube on how to use the DJI Mavic Mini I ventured to a local park which was gated off because of new turf that had been laid, I thought this was simply perfect as there was no one around and nothing to hit!
