DJI Mini 2 vs DJI Mavic Air 2 EXTREME WIND TEST

Dji Mini 2 Vs Dji Mavic Air 2 Extreme Wind Test



DJI tell us that the DJI Mini 2 (https://store.dji.com/product/mini-2?pbc=FwBaHO2T) can fly in winds up to 10.5ms but is this claim true? How does it stand up against the DJI Mavic Air 2 (https://www.dji.com/se/mavic-air-2?pbc=FwBaHO2T)?

  1. FYI it's a lot higher than 8 or 9 m/s if you would just open your UAV forecast app from the Play store and see what the real wind speed is in the gusts.. like I said I have one of those and I don't trust it it's not that accurate it all depends what gusts you get and what height you're at.. for instance the time that you measure you might not get a big of August that you get 10 minutes earlier or later.. leave that meteorology stuff up to the professionals especially with a expensive drone.

    But I definitely understand why we try..

    😉

  2. Can you please explain to me why the MINI 2 IS THE ONLY DJI MAVIC DRONE THAT GIVES YOU TWO SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE WIND ?

    WHY DOES IT SAY 19 MILES AN HOUR TO 23.5 WITHOUT EXPLAINING!!

    For instance on the mavic Air 2 it just says 23.5

    What does it mean by 19 to 23.5 does it mean sometimes it's 19 and sometimes it's 23 LOL

    And again I don't know why people just don't use the UAV forecast app to accurately tell people what the real wind and temperature is at the height the drones going to be at.. I apologize if you've done this in other videos I didn't see..

    As for the wind gadget you got there the anemometer thing I bought one too but I think it's a complete waste of money.

    It only tells you the wind speed of where you are where you're standing… So I never use it because the Drone is always going to be 100 ft to 400 ft above your head where the wind speed can change drastically so can the wind gusts..

    That's why I always use the UAV forecast app that will much more accurately tell you what the wind and gust speeds are going to be above your head you obviously must know this..

    So if wind machine tells you the speed of the wind where you're standing it's got to be a lot worse above your head..

  3. I figured it out! The specs for the DJI Mini 2 claim to handle high winds. The secret is that it can FLY in high winds but it can't FILM in high winds. The "Maximum Tilt Angle" says "Up to 40° under strong winds" but the "Gimbal Mechanical Range" says "Roll: -35° to 35°! So it has to tilt beyond the range of the gimbal in order to handle the strong winds. This is where the Mavic Air 2 shines. It's maximum tilt is 35° and it's gimbal supports "Roll: -45° to 45°".

  4. Only surprise here to me was how well the gimbal on the Mini 2 performed. The MA2 has significantly shakier footage. I'm not sure if it's because the Mini 2's gimbal is better or if the wind has more surface area to hit on the MA2. Thanks for exposing DJI's marketing hype! I suppose Occusync 2.0 and the ability to shoot RAW would be much better features to hype up than the wind resistance aspect of this drone.

    To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed DJI chose to release a new Mini so soon. It's pretty obvious by now that it's not that much of an upgrade over the original unless you really want quality 4k imagery in such a small form factor. It also seems to me DJI is still at risk of cannibalizing sales between their Mini and Mavic Air line-ups. Next time they should do a better job of differentiating the two when they release new drones for both line-ups.

  5. So i was thinking, wouldn’t it be soo cool if dji makes a gopro karma style drone. So you can slide an osmo pocket into a new designed drone (just like the karma grip) with the battery under it with sensors and amazing tracking features(just like skydio2) ? That would be soo cool!! 2 in 1 drone! Sorry i was bored.

  6. This was exactly the comparison I've been looking forward to, thank you for it.
    While the outcome is ultimately not surprising, I admit I was curious to see whether, by some miracle, DJI had managed to build in near-Air-2 levels of wind resistance into the Mini 2. I just bought the Air 2 on the assumption this wasn't the case, but the Mini 2 was a very tempting proposition, so seeing this video has confirmed I didn't make the wrong choice. (I don't plan on flying in high wind as a matter of habit but it does happen sometimes and, more generally, I want to do more long exposure photography and so stability is important for me)

  7. The wind resistence is mentioned in meters per second but what were the winds looked like in km/h that days approximately so I can relate. The app I use is giving the wind speed and gust in kilometers per hour not m/s. Thanks for that video though it still useful to see.

  8. Took my MA2 out last night just to drain the remainder of the battery for storage charge, it was dark and I took off to let it hover and it started drifting. Got control of it then went higher about as high as a house and it started drifting again. I managed to get control of it but it was about to fly into the side of the house? Is this because it was dark? If so whats the reason? Doesn't not do it in the light. Thanks
