DJI Mini 2 has a maximum transmission range of 10km, which is a 150% increase in range over the original Mavic Mini.
Drone position:Ability to send a live feed from the drone camera to your mobile phone so you can see exactly where DJI Mini 2 is and what it sees.
Shooting: You can shoot smoothly and without vibration thanks to the 3-axis gimbal, which compensates for the movement of the drone and the wind. While recording in 1080p resolution, you can get close to your subject without actually having to move the drone thanks to the 4X Zoom option (2X lossless quality).
