Hi Jeven, thank you for all the videos you make, I’ve been wanting to buy my first drone for a year now but I lost my job last year and very tight on money. I learn a lot on your videos. For now I am waiting for any give aways or contest any of youtubers might put up so I can join and hopefully win at least a beginners drone. Id love to use my drone here in Nova Scotia Canada. Im an immigrant and loving this country. You inspire so much, someday hopefullly I’ll have the resources. Thanks again! Hermes.

@Ryan Marvell I've seen various videos that show you can use anything including an iPad Pro. You just need the appropriate additional mounting hardware. I plan to use my iPad Mini with a small clip that mounts between the rods on the antennas and extends sufficiently beyond where the phone would normally fit. Anyway, that's my first and cheapest attempt to use a tablet. More expensive but certainly not bank-breaking options will be tried next if that fails to work out. I can't add any personal experience because I'm still charging the batts for my first flight.

I had a hard time connecting to my phone. The DJI Fly app doesn't exist in the Google play store. I had to download it from the DJI website. Once that happened things went a lot better

If we fly the drone in the area where there is no cellular signal, does it still work with the cell phone? Thanks a lot.

Thank you for a great tutorial! By the way, are you aware of any drone that allows one to control by simply drawing paths on an Ipad?

At 19:37 in the bottom center of the screen, you have the Controller in relation to the mini icon, I do not have that my firmware is updated to the latest. How can I turn that on?

This has inspired me to go get a drone! Hey, how good is the simulation, for dummies like me? This was a through introduction into not only drone operation but also photography and video editing. You Sir are a Master; I liked, subscribed and hit the notification bell, I'll now binge at @Jeven Dovey.

Very helpful tutorial Jeven. Thank you so much! I'm considering getting this drone. You have pushed me closer to it.

You should've elaborated more on the grid lines like say for instance I use all 3 choices simultaneously because it gives you the normal great lines then it also gives you the target view which the left and right horizontal line on the crosshairs are the wits of the quadrocopter can like cat whiskers so of your flying through the whole of attire you can do it by lining up the crosshairs

theres a mistake in your guide. you mention zooming to equivelant of 50mm to get paralax, this camera only has digital zoom so its only zooming in and cropping. this will not give you a more exaggerrated paralax shift effect

Thank you for a really great intro to my new drone :-) It's my first drone and I'm going to use it primarily for creating fishing-videos. I'm going to watch your color grading videos as well - it's exactly what I'm looking for and need to know a lot more about to get the shots that I want. And once again - thank you very much for a great video.

Even, thanks for a great introduction to the Mavic Mini 2. I have just upgraded from the Mavic Mini and this gives me a better feel for operating my new drone. Can I use the black battery charger to charge the gray batteries that are used for the Mini 2? Can I use my old black batteries from the Mini in the Mini 2? Thanks

Just watched part 1. Looking forward to getting my hands on one! From my experience with power banks, they usually say not to charge a device when you're charging the power bank itself, maybe the dji one is more advanced to allow for it but just something to double check 👍

I have a Mavic Mini 2 and a Mavic Pro, both record in 4k. I'm not a photographer, I know nothing about white balance or any other setting so I find it much easier to get decent videos out of the Mini 2. The Mini 2 is my go to UAV.

I just bought a DJI Mini 2 and have looked at a bunch of videos and this is my favourite. Explanations are really good and well structured. The only thing I had a problem with is the acronyms, not everyone new to drones knows the meanings so maybe first time you use one describe what they stand for. The other thing I would have added was how dangerous the props are when they're spinning. I accidentally put my finger into the path and it sliced it like a scalpel. I won't ever do that again. I'm looking forward to using my new drone and learning how to get the best footage possible from it. Thank you!

@chinedu olisa £400 for the DJI Mini 2. Although I managed to pick up the Mini 2 fly more package for £450 which I thought was pretty good. £50 extra for 3 batteries, extra propellers and the charger. Normal price for the fly more mini 2 kit is ££550

Thanks Jeven! Just bought my mini as I want to dive into the drone photography space. I love watching epic landscape edits. Would love to see tips and tricks on how to film/edit for that scenario. This is by the far the best video I've watched when talking about the dji mini 2. Thanks for all the effort. Liked and subscribed.

Great comprehensive video. I've been a user of the original Mavic Pro since it came out but feel that I am getting forced into getting a lighter drone to enable me to get footage in more restricted places since the rules in the UK and Europe have changed at the start of this year.
