  • A light and compact drone
  • Capable of shooting 2.7K at 30 fps
  • Automatic flight modes for professional images

A compact drone that fits in the palm of your hand

The DJI Mini SE, unlike many other drones on the market, adopts a more compact and lightweight format, weighing only 249 grams. It is therefore below the threshold of 800 grams, from which a declaration and training are required by European legislation. But we still advise you to do a little online training to be able to fly safely, and to be more comfortable. Otherwise, this drone will be easily transportable thanks to its foldable skeleton which can slip into a backpack without any problem.

The drone also comes with several accessories to facilitate your flight sessions, such as a radio control, an intelligent flight battery, a pair of spare propellers, several USB and RC cables, a gimbal protection or a pair of spare joysticks.

Videos in 2.7K for a professional result

To control your drone, you can download the DJI Fly application, available on iOS and Android, then insert your smartphone into the controller with removable joysticks provided. To connect your device, you will have three cables available: a micro-USB, a USB-C and a Lightning. Concretely, this installation will allow you to obtain HD video feedback in flight, up to 2 kilometers away.

The drone also incorporates a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with an 83° lens. It will thus be possible to capture photos or videos up to 2.7K at 30 fps, but also in 1080p at 30 or 60 fps. Here, unfortunately, no 4K like on the more expensive and premium DJI drones, but for beginners in aerial video, the image quality will be more than sufficient. You can even express your creativity with the many automatic flight modes available, such as Dronie, Spiral, Rocket and Circle modes. After selecting the desired QuickShot, the drone will execute the chosen movement during the video recording. What make life much easier if you want to get a pro result.

Otherwise, this drone has a 3-axis stabilized motorized gimbal, which will ensure smooth and shake-free images. However, it will be necessary to take care to spare it, because it does not carry collision sensors. Finally, on the autonomy side, this DJI Mini SE drone will be able to fly for about 30 minutes on a single charge.
