DJI Mavic Mini Drone leaked - Is it under 250 grams?
The Mavic Mini from DJI is definitely a leak that makes me excited, as you can already see from the pictures that there are too many details to be just a hoax and it might just be under 250grams.
What should you expect from this article:
- I’ll go over each detail I can see in the pictures
- List of leaked specs (not guaranteed)
- Debate a few of the possible specs from the looks of it.
Why trust me?
- A lot of drone review experience
I have tried and tested over 100 drones and also reviewed them in detailed both on the website and on youtube
- I won't try to tell you that any specs are actually true
It's interesting to speculate how the drone will fly and what technology it will spec. But don't think for a moment that this is the absolute truth. Just enjoy the fact that DJI is going to finally release a cheaper product in a compact frame.
I have a cat
I don’t know if DJI is doing this intentionally, or if they’re really bad at managing their employees, but it’s like the fourth time a leak like this has shown up. I’m pretty sure it’s a marketing strategy to build hype by now.
I consider this to be 100% a real leak, because of the following reasons:
- The blue background is the same or similar to the one with the leaked pictures of the DJI Spark (and that proved to be true).
- Nobody would bother to create a great looking product like this just foar a hoax.
- There actually is demand on the market for good quality drones under 250grams.
DJI Mavic Mini vs DJI Spark
I always wished DJI spark was foldable, and I guess this is the solution DJI is going to offer. Although the two drones seem to be about the same size, the Mavic is slightly thinner and of course it has the foldable arms, which makes it way more compact than any drone we’ve seen so far from DJI.
And again, if you notice, both leaks have the same blue background and that makes me think that this has to be a legit leak.This time even the photos are more accurate.
Close to the camera we can find an on and off button next to some battery LEDs. The cooling sistem can also be found on the belly of the aircraft in what looks a lot like some fish gills.
Between me and you, I always thought the Mavic looked like a shark.
We can see there’s a round battery slot this time, covering most of the space inside the aircraft, and even going outside a bit.
These specs have been leaked on the internet recently, but can’t be 100% trusted, so take them with a grain of salt. I have my doubts that the drone has a 3 axis gimbal, but anyway, let’s get to it.
Here are my own estimations:
- under 250 grams
- 2 axis gimbal
- under $400
- over 1km range
- wifi technology (like mavic Air)
- 15 min flight time
