New photos, specs emerge for DJI's Mavic Mini drone rumored to be released tomorrow

Late last week, DroneDJ obtained images of an unreleased DJI drone that appeared to blur the lines between DJIs Spark and Mavic drones. Now, DroneDJ has gotten its hands on a number of specs it believes the drone, said to be named the Mavic Mini, could have when its officially revealed.

The images, which were first posted (and subsequently deleted) by Twitter user and drone pilot OsitaLV, show a drone that looks like DJIs Mavic drones, but is small enough that it could also be the successor to the DJI Spark or even the DJI Mavic Air.

However, its arms articulate more in line with what the DJI Mavic Pro and DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom do and its three-axis gimbal appears to be a smaller, less substantial version of that found on the Mavic Airall details that further blur the lines of where this drone would sit in DJIs lineup.

According to the new information provided by OsitaLV, the drone will feature a 12-megapixel 4K 1/2. 3 CMOS sensor, retail for $399 when it launches, weigh 350g (12. 35oz) and measure 270mm (10. 63in) diagonally when unfolded. This puts it 100g over the FAAs 250g limit, but still keeps it on the smaller side.

For the tech spec of the Mavic Mini, here is what I guessed.
Power: 2-3S battery, probably used 18650. Regular propeller.
Body: about 270mm diagonal length when unfolded.
Pricing: $399?
Radio: enhanced Wi-Fi
VIO: only in front & bottom.
Weight: about 350g
Camera: 12MP 1/2. 3 CMOS

OsitaLV suggests the new drone will make use of the enhanced Wi-Fi technology found in DJIs Mavic Air and Spark drones, and have object avoidance sensors on the front and bottom of the drone. Its also reported the drone will use a new, replaceable battery thats housed inside a compartment that also houses the memory card slot and USB port.

One anomaly, however, is that the images show a Micro USB port on the drone, while DJIs more recent drones use USB-C. This could simply be because the drone seen in the images was an earlier version sent in for patent and registration purposes, before the jump to USB-C was made.

What will be released in Aug 13th?

Worlds first 100-million-pixel drone launched by DJI and Hasselblad

Chinese drone manufacturer DJI has announced that it is to launch a new drone later this year that will be fitted with a 100-million-pixel Hasselblad H6D-100c camera. The DJI M600 Pro will be aimed at those who need precise and detailed aerial pictures, as it will not only produce extremely high resolution images but users will be able to position the drone with what the company describes as centimeter-level accuracy using the D-RTK GNSS navigation system.

DJI and Hasselblad Release World First 100MP Medium Format Drone

Anticipation was high when DJI acquired a majority stake in Hasselblad earlier this year, but we havent seen the partnership truly bear fruit until now. The two companies have just announced an extremely high-spec drone which combines DJIs excellent drone tech and Hasselblads decades of photography experience, bringing medium format photography to the skies.

Hands-On With The New DJI Mavic

For years now, the best drones have been large and unwieldy to transport. If you wanted great camera quality, a solid build and a reputable name, youd be looking at a heavy, cumbersome drone like the DJI Phantom 4 or the Yuneec Q500 Typhoon 4K.
