What’s our conclusion?
DJI would not have made the second version worse than their first version!…..would they?
Not a chance! The only reason why you’d choose the Mini 1 over the Mini 2 is if you needed to save a few bucks! Yes. The Mini 1 is cheaper now. That’s about it! The Mini 2 allows you to fly more comfortably, for longer, with better quality, and faster with the option of great Intelligent Flight modes! It’s a great drone that you can fly ALMOST anywhere. Just don’t be an idiot! (C.A.R. 900.06)
