Full Description

DJI Mavic Mini

The ultra-lightweight and portable drone from DJI.

What is the Mavic Mini?

DJI has recently unveiled the Mavic Mini drone. This new drone weighs 249g, meaning that it will not need to be registered with the UK or USA Governments.

Weighing under 250 grams, the DJI Mavic Mini is almost as light as the average smartphone.

This makes it exceptionally portable and places it in the lowest and safest weight class of drones, which in many countries may exempt it from specific regulations.

Key Features

  • 249g Ultralight and measures 160mm (length) x 202mm (width) x 55mm (height) unfolded
  • 30-minute maximum flight time; Top speed of 46.8kph / 29mph in s-mode
  • Up to 4km HD Video Transmission
  • Vision Sensor + GPS Precise Hover
  • 3-Axis Gimbal supporting 12MP aerial photos and 2.7K Quad HD videos
  • Mavic Mini’s QuickShot modes include Dronie, Circle, Helix, and Rocket

The DJI Fly App

The new DJI Fly app offers a simple and intuitive user experience, enabling you to create cinematic shots and awesome videos with just a few taps. Even beginners with no editing experience whatsoever can turn any moment into a social media hit. It even has Flight Tutorial, a feature to help you get started with Mavic Mini quickly and safely.

Mavic Mini Remote Controller

The Mavic Mini also uses a dedicated remote controller that maintains an HD, low-latency video feed at a distance of up to 4km. Detachable control sticks can be easily stored inside the remote controller for added portability.

Under 250g Drone Registration Threshold

The most portable drone ever created by DJI.

Exceptionally Portable.

Weighing under 250 grams, the Mavic Mini is almost as light as the average smartphone.

This makes it exceptionally portable and places it in the lowest and safest weight class of drones, which in many countries may exempt it from certain regulations.

For example, in the UK, United States, Canada, and China, you can fly the Mavic Mini without the need to register it with the government, as it falls under the 250g drone registration threshold.

It also means that the DJI Mavic Mini is the most portable drone ever created by the industry giant.

It's compact and light enough to take everywhere - which means you're going to have the chance to capture a lot more memories!

DJI Mavic Mini Review

Mavic Mini Review

In our Mavic Mini Review we talked about six different reasons to buy the Mavic Mini.

For its size - it has a brilliant camera, can be flown in a wide range of environments, has a fully-featured app compatible with the vast majority of mobile devices, and with it's low price point it's hard to argue that it isn't the best value drone on the market right now.

The Mavic Mini Battery gives a flight time of around 30 minutes - which is well above most competing drones at this price point.

Add to that the ease of flight that we've come to expect from DJI drones and you can see why the Mavic Mini has been a huge success.

DJI Mavic Mini FAQs

Where to buy the DJI Mavic Mini?

Heliguy are an official UK DJI Gold dealer. 

This means you'll get official DJI stock, access to our expert support team and free next day delivery.

Simply choose the Mavic Mini or the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo at the top of this page and checkout!

Will the Mavic Mini get a Follow Me function?

The DJI Mavic Mini doesn't have a "Follow Me" function - which DJI commonly call ActiveTrack.

However, DJI have the potential to add this functionality in at a later date.

There has been no official confirmation that the ActiveTrack feature will appear on the Mavic Mini as of yet - however - given the calls for it to be added from many DJI users - it may be something that arrives in the coming months.

Can the Mavic Mini fly in rain?

No - the Mavic Mini doesn't have any kind of IP rating, isn't waterproof and shouldn't be flow in rain, snow, high winds or any other kind of precipitation.

You should always fly your drone within the operational limits of that particular drone, and within the local laws and regulations.

Does the Mavic Mini work with DJI Goggles?

No - the Mavic Mini doesn't support DJI Goggles or DJI Goggles Racing Edition.

Support for the Goggles may be added at a later date via app or firmware update, but there has been no official confirmation from DJI that the Mini will ever support any of DJI's FPV Goggles.

If you would like to use the Goggles, we'd suggest looking at a Mavic 2 instead.

Is the Mavic Mini worth it?

Heliguy certainly think so!

You're getting a lightweight drone with a great flight time at an incredible price point.

When you consider that just a couple of years ago this technology would've cost over £2k and would've had a 10 minute flight time - the Mavic Mini represents incredible value for money.

Can the Mavic Mini shoot in RAW?

The Mavic Mini does not have the ability to shoot in RAW.

The photos you take will be stored in JPEG format only.

Can the Mavic Mini do flips or any other kind of tricks?

No - the Mavic Mini isn't designed as a "trick" drone.

If you're hoping to have some fun with some aerial acrobatics, we'd recommend exploring the DJI Tello range instead.

Which memory card should I buy for the Mavic Mini?

The Mavic Mini supports microSD cards only.

Officially - the minimum specifications for the microSD card are:

UHS-I Speed Class 3 or above

Drone Laws, Licences and Training Requirements

Drone Registration

Do I need UK drone registration?

Yes, you will need to register. Visit the CAA’s DMARES website. If you have already registered and have an Operator ID, ensure this is attached to your Mavic Mini. 

Where Can I Fly?

As long as the flying weight remains under 250g, you can fly in the Open Category’s A1 subcategory (fly over people). This allows: 

  • Flights over uninvolved people, but not over crowds

However, if the flying weight exceeds 250g, Mavic Mini pilots will need to adhere to the rules of an A1 Transitional class drone or fly in the A3 subcategory.

This means:

  • A1 Transitional: No intentional flight over involved persons.
  • A3: No uninvolved people present within the area of flight; No flight within 150m horizontally of residential, commercial, industrial, and recreational areas.


To be able to fly under A1 Transitional terms, an A2 CofC is required.

Want more freedom? Take a drone training course.


Training Options

A2 CofC

Mavic Mini pilots only require an A2 CofC if the flying weight exceeds 250g and operation is within the remit of A1 Transitional conditions.

How Do I Get an A2 CofC?

Complete an A2 CofC with Heliguy - a UK CAA-approved Recognised Assessment Entity - through our online training portal.

The A2 CofC involves a syllabus, followed by a multiple choice examination (sat remotely with Heliguy) and a period of practical flight training.

Can I Fly Commercially Without An A2 CofC?

Yes. Mavic Mini pilots can fly commercially without having an A2 CofC. But an A2 CofC is needed for A1 Transitional flights if weight exceeds 250g, regardless of whether the operation is for recreational or commercial purposes.

Permission For Flight Association Members

Members of Flight Associations can fly under an Article 16 authorisation, which enables flights up to 30m of uninvolved people and 30m horizontal distance from an assembly of people in certain locations - without having to do an A2 CofC or GVC. But, such is the weight of the Mavic Mini, and its associated permissions, Mavic Mini pilots may well fly under the terms of the A1 subcategory. Article 16 cannot be used for commercial reasons, though.

What Happens If I Had A Valid PfCO?

Holders of a Standard Permission valid beyond December 31, 2020, will have their permissions brought into line with the new Operational Authorisation (which has replaced the PfCO) to enable operations in the Specific Category. On renewal, this permission will become an Operational Authorisation. This means that you will not need to sit a GVC course yet, but will be required to complete a PfCO to GVC conversion course before January 1, 2024.


From January 2023 (End of Transitional Period)

Unlike other DJI drones which are not classed marked and weigh over 250g, the Mavic Mini will be able to fly as it is now at the end of the Transitional Period; ie by following the conditions of the A1 subcategory.
