We actually own 2 Mavic drones in our house. My son has one and my husband has another. My husband’s Mavic Drone is a little on the large size, so when his friend got this mini we thought it was a great option! It’s more portable and it almost as light as a smartphone. It fold up about the size of your hand, so it’s super easy to travel with. I am no tech expert, but I know what the men in my house enjoy, and this takes great 2.7K Quad HD videos and 12MP aerial photos.
