An early store listing in the Canadian store of Newegg has given us official images of the unannounced Mavic Mini from DJI, as well as an overview of the specifications. The new DJI drone is currently an open secret. We saw one FCC listing for the drone in August, and DroneDJ published only delivered photos & # 39; s last week. But the retail list adds credibility to those earlier leaks and praises the shrinking drone at $ 646.15 Canadian dollars (about $ 494) when it is sold with the DJI's Fly More kit.
One of the most important specifications on the Newegg page is the weight of the drone of only 249 grams. This means that owners in the US (and soon the UK) do not have to register this drone with the authorities to fly with it. Previously, DJI's lightest Mavic drone was the Mavic Air, which weighs 430 g, far above the FAA registration limit of 250 grams. Both the store listing and images leaked earlier this month DroneDJ show how small it is to sit in the palm of your hand. DroneDJ notes that it has the same width and height as a smartphone.
The flight time is estimated at 30 minutes according to the product list (which confirms with DroneDJ & # 39; s previous report), and the recording resolution is apparently above 2.7K instead of 4K, what DroneDJ speculation is an attempt to stop the Mavic Mini from cannibalizing the sale of DJI's Mavic Air or Mavic Pro drones. You can find more photos of the new drone about Winfuture.
There is currently no official indication when the Mavic Mini may see a release. DroneDJ Previously reported that the drone could be announced in late October or early November. However, since a store listing is already live, an official announcement cannot be far away.
