The DJI Mini 2 SE is an affordable beginner drone that you can fly further



DJI has officially announced the travel-friendly Mini 2 SE drone, a couple of days after it was leaked – and it’s shaping up to be a solid new option for beginners who are happy to shoot video in 2.7K rather than 4K.

The Mini 2 SE is a very minor upgrade of the DJI Mini SE, which is currently its cheapest drone and remains on sale (for now). The main difference between those two drones is that the Mini 2 SE has a newer controller (the DJI RC-N1), and a better video transmission system called OcuSync 2.0.

This means you can fly the Mini 2 SE much further than the standard Mini SE (within the rules that apply in your local region). That maximum range is up to 10km in the US, or 6km in other regions. By contrast, the Mini SE’s range is 4km (in the US) or 2.5km elsewhere. Those distances are for areas with low interference, though – fly the Mini 2 SE in an urban area and that range drops to between 1.5km and 3km.

Aside from this improved range and controller, the DJI Mini 2 SE is identical to its predecessor. That means you get a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor that can shoot 2.7K/30p video (or 1080p/60p clips), with your footage stabilized with a three-axis gimbal. Photographers can also take 12MP photos in JPEG or raw DNG formats.
