IMHO, better value than the Spark/Fly More Combo which are still being sold around these prices.

    Good work OP, Nice Find!

  •  

    Initially posted this store but only 1 left when I checked again https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DJI-Mavic-Mini-Drone-Fly-More-Co...

  •  

    Good deal. Though says shipping isn't until 5th December.

    •  

      Their ad says: Estimated delivery time is approx. 3-4 weeks possibly sooner (middle to end of November)

      •  

        3 weeks from today is the 26th of November, so not really mid-November. I guess if you're patient, it's a good deal. I don't think I can wait that long, lol.

  •  

    Good price but ordered at DJI store instead to pick up care refresh and better support as we are liable to crash these things especially when it doesn't have full suite of sensors.

  •  

    Been thinking about this deal for the past 24hrs. Can't decide whether to get just the drone or the fly more.

      Get the Fly More, 1 battery won't last you long. You get an extra 2 batteries, propeller guards, more spare propellers and a carry bag.

      •  

        Yea that's what I'm thinking

        Not sure whether to hold out for a 20% off eBay day or bite the bullet now haha

        One battery is good for 30minutes, that is pretty impressive for a very small drone. The rest of the stuff is not really required (had a Mavic Pro, a Phantom, and now have a Spark). For getting "drone shots" for travel videos and the like, I don't seem to need more than 15min with the spark. I guess if you want to fly it round for hours, the flymore pack might be useful?

        •  

          Agreed. As a Spark owner I'm envious of the much longer light time (among other things), but you're right, I generally know the shot I want to get before I even take off. After I get the shot, the extra flight time is generally for just zooming around in sport mode…

    Is the Android version of DJI app still terrible? I can't justify buying an iOS device just to be able to control the drone.

    • +3 votes

      Yes I got an iPad mini that snugs nicely into the controller because the android app is horrible. Works smooth on iOS

    • +4 votes

      The mini doesnt use Go4 anymore, its got its own simplified app. Time will tell how good (or bad) it is.

    I'm banking on Black Friday for a better deal 🤞

    Please note that these are locked to CE mode in Australia and will not have the stated 4km range. Unlike the Spark which can easily be forced into FCC mode via software.
    Also, no object tracking (ie follow me mode) or object avoidance sensors.

    •  

      Seems like it only goes 2km

      • +2 votes

        That is academic considering that you must have the drone within eyesight at all time. Don't know about others but I can barely see mine past 200 metres. I like to take photos/videos so would rather have the 2.7K 3-axis gimbal camera on the Mavic Mini than the Spark's 1080p 2-axis gimbal.

    •  

      Tell me more about this CE mode?

      1. 4 km for FCC compliant Model (MT1SS5) and 2 km for CE compliant Model (MT1SD25)
      • +3 votes

        It's the transmission power between the controller and the drone. Australia and Europe are CE, US and the rest use FCC. It will be interesting to see if the Mavic Mini does get the full 2km range. My Spark in CE is supposed to have 500m but it's more like 200-300m. In FCC mode I've had it out 3.5km

          Gahh. I didn't know this. Thanks for sharing. I feel like cancelling my pre order now..

          •  

            @lawyerz: It is annoying that DJI have done this because even if you were to take the drone on holidays to the US you would still be restricted to CE mode. Whereas the Spark will automatically switch modes depending on region.

            •  

              @aldroid: =( that sucks. I cancelled my preorder with DJI.

              •  

                @lawyerz: You can't legally fly any drone beyond your visual line of sight. You wouldn't see the Mavic Mini beyond 1.5kms away anyway. So having the drone limited to that isn't that big of a deal. Because you'd be flying illegally anyway.

        •  

          Grab an OTG cable off ebay for a few dollars, pop your phone in flight mode with wifi and bluetooth also switched off and you'll find you can push past that 300m barrier with good video transmission. Just double checked my flight logs, I've taken my Spark to 1031 meters (over water so perhaps less inference around). Although I agree with other comments on line of sight, no way I could see the drone at that distance, I was cruising after my mate who was on a jet ski but would never do it over land.

          •  

            @squinly: Also keep in mind, 2km is over 2 minutes of flight time away, that's at 50km per hour (sport mode), assuming no wind and you flight back in a perfectly straight line, it can be very nerve wracking, especially if your battery is getting on the low side…

      One of the administrators on the official DJI forums stated yesterday that Australia is getting the MT1SS5 (FCC) version of the Mavic Mini.
      source (one of the later replies on the bottom of the thread)

      •  

        Yeah, it doesn't really sound like they know what's going on yet. I'd recommend waiting on feedback after the first round of orders are fulfilled before biting the bullet on this one.

      •  

        In Australia - We dont get either CE or FCC - we get SRRC which is kinda like diet-FCC mode. 2.5km stated range.

        The difference with SRRC is in 5Ghz power output is closer to that of FCC however in 2.4Ghz is closer to that of CE - hence why people assume Australia automatically means CE (really depends what band its operating on).

        The MT1SS5 model is FCC/SRRC meaning we only be getting 5.8Ghz band - not a bad thing if you fly it with clear path as 2.4Ghz is far too saturated for anything these days but we still wont get the full 4km range. Without frequency hopping like that used in the Mavic Pro's (Ocusync/Lightbridge) 2.4Ghz is pretty useless IMO.

    •  

      the Visual Line of Sight rule will come in to play well before the range of the drone anyway. How are you supposed to see a drone that's 2kms + away anyway. Legally you can't fly the drone if you can't see it in the sky.

    Is this friendly for first timers?

    • +2 votes

      Definitely.

    • +5 votes

      Personally I think the Spark is a better drone for first timers. It has obstacle avoidance, object tracking and hand gesture control. And I would expect the price of the Spark to drop significantly once the Mavic Mini is out.

      Make sure you get the prop guards, will save you 90% of the time and you will be fine while learning.

      AND STAY AWAY FROM TREES, THEY ARE DRONE MAGNETS.

    will be hard to find 0.5gr filter for this drone

  •  

    Did you guys find PL and ND filter that useful for videos? I’m getting mixed reviews,

    • +1 vote

      If you are into photography/videography then you will have a use for them. PL filters are good when you are over large body of water to reduce reflection. ND filters: bright sunlight is too harsh when you are up there, cut and paste from Google: ND filters are used to help reduce your shutter speed in order to follow the 180-degree rule while maintaining proper exposure

    Hate it when I put up deal posts for the "smaller" stores, they make a couple of sales then decide it is a good idea to jack up the price. Oh well, it was good while it lasted…
    Try the other store specialbuyswarehouse, they have not jacked the price… 2 Fly More Combos left, be quick before they realise…

    Does anyone know the latest CASA regulations on drones in Australia? This 249g drone is definitely for the USA/Canada market where under 250g falls into a regulatory grey area where you don't need to register your drone, but I'm not sure where our regulators are at?!?

      •  

        Thanks man, looks like the Mavic Mini is the way to go, my Spark at 300g will need to be registered at some point sadly… from the link:

        Flying for fun
        If you are flying your drone for fun, all drones weighing more than 250 g will need to be registered.

        Registration will be quick and easy and last for 12 months. You do not have to do anything at this time.

        Drones weighing 250 g or less and those only flown indoors will not need to be registered. Also, you won't need to register any model aircraft being exclusively flown at a CASA-verified model airfield.

        As part of these new rules, you'll also need to get accredited to show you've learnt the drone safety rules.

        •  

          Pretty sure registrations don't kick in till 2021 or beyond though.

        • +2 votes

          Registration is like $5. I will register my Mini anyway because if it's found and surrendered CASA can contact you to retrieve it. The "downside" is that if you enter any restricted airspace they can trace it back to you.
