The DJI Mavic Mini is only just approaching its first birthday, but there are already growing rumors that a DJI Mavic Mini 2 could be landing soon. If you're not familiar with the original Mavic Mini, it's a tiny and affordable drone that weighs only 249g. That is conveniently 1g below the minimum weight that some civil aviation authorities, including the USA's FAA and the UK's CAA, have decided is the cut-off for drones needing to be registered before you can fly them. Because it doesn't need registering, this makes the Mavic Mini a hassle-free option for those who are just starting their drone-flying hobby. But it's also far from a toy – thanks to DJI's signature stabilization, it's capable of shooting some impressive video. In what was possibly a mistaken listing from US retailer Adorama, the Mavic Mini 2 was listed for $449, with its Fly More Combo's price set to $599. When the original Mavic Mini arrived, it cost $399 / £369 / AU$599 – so if this price leak turns out to be correct, it suggests the drone's new standalone price might be $449 / £415 / AU$675. The biggest clue so far that a DJI Mavic Mini 2 could be launching soon is an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing in the US, which was recently picked up by DJI drone pilot @OsitaLV on October 6.
