Chapter in this post:
I got the a few days ago DJI Mini 3 Pro ordered because I am very sure that this drone is another milestone in development. She's quieter than them DJI Mini 2, takes very passable shots in the dark, has many sensors for detecting obstacles and otherwise it seems to be extremely well equipped with features. So why should the DJI Mini 2 be the better alternative?!?
There is one feature where the DJI Mini 2 clearly has the edge: the purchase price. And that is also noticeable in the recording quality. Well, maybe not directly, but indirectly, because most people fly more cautiously with an expensive drone than with a cheap one. That makes sense so far.
And here the DJI Mini 2 clearly scores ahead of the DJI Mini 3 Pro, because while the Mini 2 only costs 459 euros, the DJI Mini 3 Pro costs a whopping 829 euros. One thing is clear: if you always want the latest model, you have to dig deep into your pocket.
I'm on YouTube this video by Phillip Skraba encountered In it he explains that unfortunately he did not receive a test version of the Mini 3 Pro, but that he does not really have to have the new model either. He loves his DJI Mini 2 and if you work with a log profile and color grading and can fly well, you can also get breathtaking shots out of this drone.
To make sure you know he wasn't lying I would suggest you watch his video as not only does it twirl his Mini 2 on its boom through the frame but he also has a lot of his shots which are really impressive.
And he also mentions that due to the DJI Mini 2's low price, he doesn't have to worry about having to do wild flights to nail a certain scene. He frankly admits he treats the drone really badly because to him it's just a tool. And so far she has put everything away without a fuss. So the Mini 2 also seems to be a robust specimen.
From his point of view, the Mini 2 is therefore a recommendation, which is mainly due to the low price and the - nevertheless - good video quality. I found the idea so exciting that I wanted to share it with you. And if you don't already have a DJI Mini 3 Pro because it's too expensive for you, the DJI Mini 2 might be a good choice. You can then fly them until the DJI Mini 4 comes out - that's how we always do it with the iPhone, right?!? 😊
