Best For: First-time drone flyers and people who want the cheapest DJI drone currently on the market.
A sibling of the DJI Mini 2, DJI purposefully designed the budget-friendly Mini 2 SE for people brand new to the magical world of drones. It has a one-touch take-off/landing button, stable hovering (in winds up to 38 kph), and an ingenious return-to-home (RTH) feature. You can even set the drone to automatically RTH when the battery level drops below a certain percentage.
If that wasn’t enough, the free DJI Fly mobile app is available for both Apple and Android devices, provides clear-cut instructions on how to set up your drone, and has easy-to-follow flying tutorials. Honestly, there’s not much more first-time drone pilots or beginners on a tight budget could ask for!
With a price of only $339 with the controller, the DJI Mini 2 SE is far and away the cheapest DJI drone on sale today. If you opt for the Fly More Combo instead, the price bumps up to a still affordable $489. The Fly More Combo includes a remote, three batteries, three spare propellers, and more!
The DJI Mini 2 SE has five intelligent shooting modes—Helix, Dronie, Rocket, Circle, and Boomerang. Each one records a unique short film with a single push of a button. In addition, you can create three types of panoramas (wide-angle, 180°, sphere) and gorgeous time-lapse movies.
High-Resolution Video (2.7K Video)
2.7K video is the perfect resolution for new aerial videographers because it's sharp enough to impress your friends and family but, at the same time, doesn’t take up so much space that you’ll need to go out and spend hundreds of dollars on external hard drives. The Mini 2 SE also takes 12-megapixel still photos.
