    The DJI Mini 2 is the most popular drone currently on the market. With the release of the new DJI Mini 3 Pro, a lot of you are wondering if it's worth upgrading. In this video, I talk about some of the reasons you may want to hold on to your Mini 2, and a lot of reasons why you might want to upgrade. All these reasons are based on my experience flying both platforms, you opinions may vary.

The mini 3 pro isnt worth the price in my opinion because yeah you have sensors and follow things and the light weight but the air 2s has a 1inch sensor and you can find it for the same price. Only problem is the weight but most of the times they dont check your drone in places so it doesnt even matter. But yeah we shall see it the price drops

The Mini 2 is the smallest drone I own. It goes with me on the motorcycle or on hikes all the time. I'm a hobbyist only and people look at my photos and videos on their phones. Most aren't going to know if I flew a Mini 3 or a Mini 2, especially after I've edited the photos/footage before releasing them. I'd rather put money into my DSLR stuff before handing it over to DJI every time they put out a new model. :-)

I have the mini 2 with combo pack and love it. I was going to get the mini3 on credit but changed my mind as its just to expensive when compared to what you get with the mini2 package. Also, i think the mini 2 camera gives a sharper image over the mini 3.

The Mini 3 isn't and shouldn't be considered a replacement for the Mini 2, they share the same weight class and name but that's it. The Mini 2 is a beginner / entry level drone, the mini 3 is a higher end drone more in line with the Air 2S sort of area in both capability and price point. Should you upgrade from the Mini 2 to the Mini 3, only if you were considering upgrading to the Air 2S.

You make a good point about the Mini 2 being compatible with the Litch app and other third party mapping apps. So if having access to these apps is important to you, upgrading to the Mini 3 is not in cards at this point. Great video, and thanks for sharing.

If you have no weight restrictions, why not just get, The Mavic AIR 2S or Mavic AIR 2? You can purchase a Refurbished Mavic AIR 2 Fly More Combo for $669, I only paid $714 shipped for the AIR 2 Fly More Combo & 1 Year Care Refresh Plan. it's the best deal out, on a awesome drone.

Cheers for that really useful comparison. I keep swaying back and forth with the Mini 3 and realise that it's not so much of an upgrade as a brand new drone. I think the stills and video camera specs would do it for me but I'm sad to say the new uprated battery will not be available in the UK. As I intend to work my way through the A2 CofC this may not remain a problem but I'll probably hold on to the Mini 2 for a few months at least.

I purschased the mini 2, to be used as a hobby. And it OVERexceeds my expectations. It is a amazing little drone. I dont use it eneough to justify a upgrade. It just wouldnt make sense. The mini 3 seems to be a beast of a drone. Great specs ec. But to be honest, not specs I need as a novice flyer. Im pretty impressed on the 2. And im sure there is going to be a new one coming out every year. I have learned to be content with what I have instead of jumping to get the neweset when what i currently own is somthing I already consider to be a amazing product . Thanks for the great review pee usal

Hi Ignacio, thank you for this content. Last year I was considering the mini 2 but did not pull the trigger. Now the mini 3 with avoidance and other features looks attractive. My sole purpose of purchasing a drone would be for recreational purposes, use out when gravel cycling, around the house or at a park. Nothing commercial of with the intent of making money. I noticed the Mavic air 2 is priced attractively vs the mini 3. Would the air 2 be adequate for my purposes? Or am I looking over any advantages of the mini 3 other than weight?

I have the Mini 2 and I’d love to upgrade, but my Mini 2 was $749 and the same kit for the Mini 3 Pro is $1229… That’s almost a $500 increase! As much as I want obstacle avoidance (among other features), I just can’t justify it at that price

@Eddslens For that price tag I’d expect upward obstacle avoidance sensors (like the Air 2S), a charging brick, and as a bonus, for the Mini 2 batteries to be compatible. It is packed with features but at almost $500 more that’s enough to buy a second drone (like the SE)

I think it’s a very fair price personally, it is stacked with features, obstacle avoidance is amazing, the nd filter system is way better, has focus track!! Hyperlapses ahh man so many features I can’t wait to use. Lower aperture so better low light footage, portrait shooting for social media posts! Upward pointing gimbal.. honestly it is a game changing drone and all for less than half the cost of my canon r6 body (without a lens) and that doesn’t fly through the sky. The results this drone will enable you to capture is well worth £1000 compared to any other kind of camera at that price range let alone one that flys :) it’s entirely dependant on the users needs but for £500 more I think it’s worth it

Mini 2 was a MASSIVE game changer and step up from the original Mini for sure with the transmission that alone is completely worth the upgrade.

It always depends on everybody needs and purposes. You can choose DJI Mini 1, 2 or 3, each have their own capabilities and accessories. I still think Mini 3 Pro is slightly overpriced because it shouldn´t be in that place, it canabalize Mavic 2 and Air 2s, so Mini 3 Pro position and price are misplaced. Dji couldn´t make the upgrades without increasing too much the price so they took the safe way by increasing significantly the price with fewer units, thats why the base version is already sold out, and people who order now will get their order in months from now.

@3D Models & Toys we gout the same thougts. Lets remove the backward firing sensors, normal small controller for a mini and it could allready cost a 200 less and skip the pro because pro should just be for 1inch or higher. Bigger sensor means more room for light and less noise. I mean these drones or for movie capture. Not to toy around in the garden like a fpv drone.

@Trouble Maker Thats my point, both Air 2s/Mavic 2 and Mini 3 pro currently are on the same price category with similar capabilities, its a bit confusing. Thats why Mini 3 pro shouldnt be in that position, it should have been named "Mini 3" and have a bit less features and be a little cheaper from what it costs now.

Does the "HDR" function work when using the D-Cenelike gamma? Or,...does DJI simply "bake-in" their pre-color graded HDR look into a normal contrast rec709 profile? This is important because HDR leaves room for color grading but only if it's baked into a flat profile. If it's baked into a high contrast profile, then there is nothing that can really be done to it in post.

Aside from the upwards sensors, you’re looking at smaller camera sensor, 8-bit color profile as supposed to 10-bit on the Air 2S, but probably the most important downside is wind resistance. The Air 2S is a beast in strong winds. I actually just flown mine today in the deserts of Nevada at 1000ft altitude and although i was keep getting strong wind warnings, the Air 2S kept it’s position and crisp camera view the whole time! Ps: i had it up there for no more then 1-2minutes and quickly brought it down to under 400ft. I’m not one to break the law, but i’ve had an itch to take it higher in the sky for quite some time😁

Useful video. Thanks. Correct me if I'm wrong. You really need to buy the Fly more kit if you want to fly cos the package doesn't include a battery charger? Also, is there an option to buy the charger and extra batteries without buying the kit? To me this package that doesn't come with a charger sounds a bit tricky. Not sure if I want to upgrade to 3 from 2.

The Mini 2 does everything I need except cope with wind. And there has been a lot of wind lately. The Mini 3 is supposed to be slightly better in the wind. But enough to matter? I don't know. If I can't fly, all the other things like sensors and cameras are no help. What I want is a bigger drone, more wind resistance ability.

Thank you for the great comparison. When you were talking about Occusync w 2 and 3. Are you saying that if you use the Mini 2 controller with the Mini 3 Pro craft are you limited to Occusync 2? The reason I ask is that I thought that the Mini 3 pro uses and is selling with the same controller as the one for the Mini 2? Thanks.

The thing that no one seem to recognize is that the camera of the dji mini 3 PRO is no protected. If the drone crashes the camera will have direct contact with the object and on th other hand the camera of the mini 2 is protected by the litle plastic that is overlapping the camera

I have a Mini 1 (original). One of the big attractions of the Mini 3 for me is the new controller. One of the reasons I don't fly my Mini 1 more is because I get a lot of spam calls and I figure one will occur at the worst possible time. Any thoughts?

47 minute battery would be well worth the upgrade for me. But not available in most countries including in the USA. Keeping my mini 2 with variouse available software mods. At this price point why not just go with refurbished Air 2s. Air 2s is superior and yet I still dont see it enough superior to my Mini 2.

The mini 2 does have forward obstacle avoidance and two sensors right there on the front smaller, but in much the same place as the mini 3.

As much as I want that 4K 60fps and 1080P 120fps, I just spent $600 on the Mini 2 fly more combo one year ago. The new one by itself is $800 and the flymore is still an additional $180 to 250. Im going to wait til next year and get the non pro mini 3 I’m sure they’ll release, maybe it’ll just have the upgraded camera without all the new sensors. We know there’s still a market for cheaper drones without collision avoidance.

Odds of another DJI drone without collision avoidance is slim to none. They lost way too much money replacing crashed mini 2’s through DJI Refresh. Don’t hold your breath on a non pro model.

As with most DJI upgrades the main focus is on the camera. I enjoy flying my drone and later looking at the videos that I have taken but, I am not a photographer and do not post videos to media. I do not possess a 107 license nor do I want one. The only advantage I see for a person like myself would be the controller. Is that worth $500 to me? Also optical avoidance front back and down seems like it would have been better to have it on the sides as that is where you are most likely to have a crash. Other than that I enjoy my mini 2 and will not upgrade until I see upgrades in the app and a controller w/video feed that will work with all DJI drones. By the way I still enjoy flying my spark that has optical avoidance.

What is your opinion on getting the Mini 3 Pro if you have the Mavic Air 2? Almost the same specs, only slightly larger sensor on the mini, but the weight and size (and al the drone laws that comes with them) makes me thinking about up / side-grading. (and selling MA2)

I currently have a mini 2 love it. But I crashed it and I'm having trouble getting it fixed and not sure what dji will charge (one prop doesn't spin) Two questions I'm not clear on: 1) does the mini 2 remote get the same distance as the new remote with mini 3? Or does the new controller enable it to have more flight distance? 2) are the mini 2 batteries compatible? Or were those new batteries that gave it longer life? Thanks

Around 2:50. I have an Air 2S as well as a mini 2. You can preorder just the mini 3 for around $660. I already have two controllers that should work fine with the mini 3. So, at $660, it is almost within my budget. Just have to save up a little more cash before this summer. Also, I watched your video comparing video quality of the DJI drones and the Autel. I think the quality of both my Air 2S and mini 2 are superior to the mini 3. I have a really nice large monitor so I could really see the difference. Perhaps, the mini 3 just needs an update to bring the video quality up? Since my Air 2S has OcuSync 3.0, I'm assuming that I can use my controllers with the mini 3 using OcuSync 3.0?
