There are drones in varying sizes. Some are larger for more professional and industrial use, and some are smaller for hobbyists or people who want something that can easily fit into a backpack or have less FAA restrictions.
If you’re looking for a tiny drone, then you might be interested to learn that DJI has unveiled its latest drone in the form of the DJI Mini 4 Pro. The drone comes equipped with a 48MP sensor that allows users to take RAW photos as well as videos up to 4K in resolution at a buttery smooth 60 fps (although some might want to stop it down to 24 fps for more cinematic feels).
The software in the drone also allows for better noise reduction for Night Shots, along with a True Vertical Shooting mode designed for modern day social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok.
The DJI Mini 4 Pro also comes with improved obstacle avoidance and can sense objects or obstacles in all directions thanks to its wide-angle and downward facing sensors, and with its Advanced Pilot Assistance System, it can automatically brake. As for battery life, DJI claims that the Mini 4 Pro is good for up to 34 minutes of flight time, which can be further extended with Intelligent Battery Plus up to 45 minutes.
Some other features of the drone includes QuickTransfer that allows footage captured by the drone to be transferred over to the pilot’s smartphone, and the AI-powered LightCut feature can automatically edit videos so that they’re ready to be uploaded ASAP. Another interesting feature of the drone is that it only weighs 249 grams, meaning that users won’t have to register it with the FAA in the US.
This doesn’t mean you get to fly it wherever you want. You still have to make sure you’re not flying into restricted areas (you will need to obtain permission if you want to), but otherwise overall it’s just less hassle.
The DJI Mini 4 Pro is priced starting at $759 which includes the drone and the DJI RC-N2 Remote Controller and a bunch of accessories including the DJI Mini 4 Intelligent Flight Battery.
