The DJI Mini SE drone, which till now was only available in a few South American and Asian countries, will now be available for purchase in North America as well. As a cheap entry into the world of new drones, the Chinese drone manufacturer is likely to focus primarily on the camera drone competition from Xiaomi, Fimi, and Co.
As is so often the case with DJI, the first indications of new drones appeared at a dealer, but then hopes for an even cheaper DJI entry-level drone below the DJI Mini 2 were destroyed here because the DJI Mini SE will initially only start in Russia, Malaysia, and Brazil.
In North America, however, the DJI Mini SE did not come onto the market, here the cheapest DJI drone is still the DJI Mini 2, which is currently available from Amazon for around $449. Possibly in order to be able to counter other inexpensive entry-level drones, the Chinese flight professional should now plan a launch of the DJI Mini SE in the country.
An inexpensive entry-level drone weighing just under 250 g for 2.7K videos and 12-megapixel photos with a 3-axis gimbal and a range of up to 10 km. The leading drone manufacturer has now officially made available its new model. As expected, it is a cheap entry-level drone.
According to DJI, the DJI Mini SE is the component of the Mavic Mini in the housing of the Mini 2 (approx. $399 on Amazon). It is specially tailored to the needs of beginners. Its features include video recordings with 2.7K and photos with 12 megapixels, each of which is stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal. A flight time of up to 20 minutes should be possible with one battery charge. The maximum range is up to 10 km (depending on local regulations).
The DJI Mini SE weighs only 249 g and fits easily on the palm of your hand when folded.
