DJI Mavic Mini Drone Fly More Combo $699 (Usually $799) Delivered @ Kogan (Kogan First Required)

430

Just found the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo for a pretty decent price of $699 with free express shipping on Kogan if you have a Kogan First membership (you can use the 14 day free trial)

Says its genuine Australian stock for those that are interested.

Debating whether to pull the trigger myself…

    Good price! Still waiting on my bonus $500 Kogan black credit to come through and then I'll pull the trigger on this.

    •  

      Still waiting as well…. I asked and they said 6 weeks after the 500

      Did they say something similar?

      •  

        They told me up to 10 weeks…

    Had been looking at this, probably lucky my credit from the Kogan Black Credit Card promo has not come through yet!

    Really want one of these as my first drone but super paranoid about stacking it into a tree :(

      Pay slightly more and get the Air?
      I've let 90 year old's fly mine and it all but un-crashable other than flying up into overhanging trees or powerlines. The sensors are awesome.

      Also being a heavier drone its less likely to drift away in wind, so the only crash risk is if you fly it somewhere you shouldn't. Eg practice in wide open fields then try more challenging places.

        Slightly more? Looking online it's nearly double the cost :(

          Also, the Mavic Mini being under the 250g weight limit means it's classed as a 'toy' so you can fly it anywhere (other than geo locked locations) and require no license. Very appealing to me.

          •  

            @boolian: Reviews are so compelling. Trying to work out the main reason I want a drone, for fun or videography. Definitely the latter so image quality is very important to me, hence the mavic mini being an impressive package

            • +2 votes

              @iShibby: remember the mavic mini has no manual camera controls unless this has changed in an update since launch or will, it is full auto.
              Can't lock shutter, ISO, it'll just do it itself. The test footage shows it's quite a good auto, but just something to remember if wanting for videography purposes.

              •  

                @camshandez: Yeah I think the auto settings look fantastic so would be the way to go. DJI are really the leaders in drones…

          • +1 vote

            @boolian: That's not entirely true. First of all we don't need licences yet and when they come out they are expected to be like 20 bucks, so not a huge factor given the lifespan of drones.

            Geo locked locations are still geolocked. Eg: just because it's a toy doesn't make it any more legal to fly in national parks in states like Vic, or in the regions around airports.

            I was deadset on buying a mini based off overseas reviews till i realised how little its selling points matter in australia.

      •  

        The 249g is why people are buying this.
        No need to register, way more places to fly, and - at least for me - sort of peace of mind that IF something happen to it and it fly away the chance of badly injuring someone is slim compare to 1kg heavy drone. (I have seen a fly away and been scared to fly large drones since)

        •  

          I fly all kinds of drones for work and at recreation. The little one swill just as easily slice you up as the big ones. In fact the P4P at work gave me a bruise while my mavic air sliced the end of my finger clean off.

          Also, which areas in Aus can the mavic mini fly that the mavic air can't? Every rule I've seen has been irrelevant of weight.

          •  

            @900dollaridoos: As someone who's had 3 DJI drones including the mini - the Mini's props are actually a soft, bendy plastic.

            The other drones could definitely cut you, and im sure if you got the mini on just the right angle on a piece of very soft skin you could probably get a paper cut but overall this drone truly is similar to a toy helicopter danger wise.

            Even the arms that fold out of the body are literally bendy and can flex a surprising amount.

            However, I'm not actually advocating fo the Mini - it's so light and the "power limit" errors so common that flyaways are pretty likely if you're serious about getting any shot thats not 100% close range and safe.

        •  

          In most situations locally, over 250gms isn't really an issue at the moment. There are plans to introduce registration for 250gms+, but that will likely just add another (small) barrier to entry. If you actually want a drone you can fly anywhere, you need to go sub 100gms (such as the Tello). Overseas, 250gms+ can be more of an issue so if you're buying it for travel then it could matter.

          The real highlight though of the Mini is that it's a fantastic, highly portable drone for a much lower cost than the Air. Also, DJI Refresh is only $59 for the Mini but it's over $100 for the Air, so you'll continue to save if you do have an accident. If you're flying in open wide areas and not too far, then you shouldn't have any issues. I'm amazed how well the 3-axis gimble works and how great the video turns out on the Mini.

      Dji refresh

        How much extra is it?

          Search it up. It's different for each model

            @rickyygee: $59 but you have to pay $65 aswell for a replacement unit.

            $124 extra is a fair chunk

            • +1 vote

              @iShibby: True but I bought a 699 drone. 124 is fair for a full replacement

              •  

                @rickyygee: True. How do you find it?

                • +1 vote

                  @iShibby: I got it around Jan. From the last deal. The refresh gives me peace of mind. When you fly, you don't think about oh crap what if I crash it, but rather have more fun. The mini is quite fragile too since it is so light

                  •  

                    @rickyygee: Yeah I'm probably over thinking it. I've never flown one before so didn't know whether to buy a cheap one to practice flying with. But then you might get a rubbish flying experience from a cheap drone…

      •  

        Is refresh a one- off cost or yearly?

  •  

    Has anyone found this cheaper elsewhere?
    Looking to pull the trigger on one of these in the next few days…

      Lowest I've seen is here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/506216

      Normal price on eBay is $799 so if another 15/20% comes around then it would be cheaper.

      I jumped on this as I have been waiting for it to be below $700.

    Cool, so onluy $199 for me with the $500 credit they are about to give me, instead of $299. Awesome.

    Hope this lasts until the $500 credit for the Kogan Money deal comes through. C'mon Ruslan make it happen!

    And it's gone

    Did anyone see the list of postcodes ineligible for Kogan First?

    It's pretty big, and covers my area.
    I haven't tried to process the request, but was tempted for the drone.
