  • Here's some of the biggest mistakes new pilots make with their Mini 2:

    • @Ryan Marvell be careful Using an iPad

    • Hi Jeven, thank you for all the videos you make, I’ve been wanting to buy my first drone for a year now but I lost my job last year and very tight on money. I learn a lot on your videos. For now I am waiting for any give aways or contest any of youtubers might put up so I can join and hopefully win at least a beginners drone. Id love to use my drone here in Nova Scotia Canada. Im an immigrant and loving this country. You inspire so much, someday hopefullly I’ll have the resources. Thanks again! Hermes.

      Ryan MarvellRyan MarvellPřed 2 měsíci
    • @Ryan Marvell I've seen various videos that show you can use anything including an iPad Pro. You just need the appropriate additional mounting hardware. I plan to use my iPad Mini with a small clip that mounts between the rods on the antennas and extends sufficiently beyond where the phone would normally fit. Anyway, that's my first and cheapest attempt to use a tablet. More expensive but certainly not bank-breaking options will be tried next if that fails to work out. I can't add any personal experience because I'm still charging the batts for my first flight.

  • What a great tutorial. It saved me alot of time. Great details, as before with my SPARK. Thank you. However, you may want to add that the FLY app only works with 64bit Android handys or tablets. A frustrating fact to find out, if you have flown with a tablet before, that does not work any more with the new 64bit (only! 32bit not available), or even need a new phone. Keep going! Great work.

  • Hi Jeven, I am in Texas. Is there any legal restrictions like weight that I need to consider while purchasing a drone?

  • I watched the whole tutorial and it is easy to understand. But I wonder if you would use mini 2 for mapping purpose ?

  • Can anyone confirm if I update my drone does it puts ceiling limits like a 400 ft high limit vs no update? I here and you can fly its max ceiling limits if you don't update ? Can someone set me straight.

  • Hi! Thanks for detailed videos-really hellpful! I just bought a Mini 2 and in the main screen of the app, right in the center-bottom doesn't exist the small point/arrow showing the the direction of the aircraft vs home. Do you know why? Thanks in advance!

  • Hi. Thanks for a great walkthrough. Great for a first time buyer/flyer :-) Couple of questions though. At 15.45 there's the video/camera button. I'm not getting the side menu that pops up in video mode with the 4k, 2.7k, 1080p and fps..... At 16.05 you have the exposure setting - auto and manual - mine are auto and PRO, also I can't change the M.M setting as well as the AE lock - not on my app at all :-( At 19.36 you talk about the little icon in the middle with the controller in relaion to the drone - not on my app as well I'm using android - do you know if the setting are that much different on iOs and Android ???

  • I did figure then the Drone mini 2 doesn't have sensors to avoid obstacles on its way, it can easily Crush which of those dros has sensors to make sure that I could be able to navigate even into the forest?Could you please let me know what kind of software do you use do manage those videos especially if I have multiple small videos and I would like to train them and make one longer I would really appreciate your advice thank you; Arek

  • Your video may be fantastic, but because I can't find DJI Fly App on Google Play, I can't connect to my Mini 2. Ready to take it back to the store and give up.

    rwthomasifyrwthomasifyPřed 9 dny
    • Ok, here's the scoop on the Fly App. It is only available on 64 bit systems, so if you don't have one, you'll need to figure that into the cost of getting a Mini 2. My phone is not that old, but it's not 64 bit. Since I've already purchased my Mini 2, that means either a two year contract, or spending another $400 plus to upgrade my phone. Not cool.

      rwthomasifyrwthomasifyPřed 9 dny
  • Google Play Store doesn't have DJI Fly App. DJI Go 4 doesn't list Mini as one of the applications. Now what?

    rwthomasifyrwthomasifyPřed 9 dny
  • This was a long tutorial... but it felt that way. I am actually thinking of buying this drone for my 1st one and this really helped me to get to know the drone. Will also look at the biggest mistakes right after this

    Dejan MarjetičDejan MarjetičPřed 9 dny
  • Thanks for the vid! Handles everything one needs to get up and flying/filming with the mini 2. I'm looking to start creating content for stock footage to begin with and eventually marketing my content locally and expanding from there. It's an ambitious idea but with merit I believe given my propensity for succeeding when I'm dedicated to an endeavor. I'm torn between using Adobe Premier and Final Cut Pro for post though... Thanks again for putting forth all the effort to produce this! I learned a lot. Will be watching more for sure. Mini 2 is a learning drone/camera for me. Mavic 2 Pro or Autel Evo 2 Pro is my next purchase indeed.

  • Excellent video. I am interested in using this drone for use on a sail boat and wondering how best to ensure that it can come back to where I am to catch it as the boat will always move to some degree so GPS home is not likely to work. Obviously a newbie question but an important one to decided whether to buy one or not.

  • Thanks, with over a thousand successful flights on my Phantom 3 Professional, this was a great guide to help me with the differences between the DJI Go app for the Phantom 3 and the DJI Fly app for the Mini 2, I still use the Phantom 3 Pro, but this Mini is a great pocket size 4k drone I can carry with me anywhere which is not always possible with the large Phantom backpack. I have subscribed and will surely watch more of your channel. Very well done and greetings from Australia.

But I have not been able to do that because I have financial difficulties. Can you give me a Mavic Mini 2 drone? It will enable us poor students to learn. Please grant my innocent request if you can. I love it .But I do not have the money to buy it.
