Mavic Mini 101

Your Guide to DJI's Mavic Mini

The DJI Mavic Mini is a great drone for many reasons.

It’s super easy to learn, so if you’re a beginner, the Mavic Mini could be the drone for you.

It’s also tiny, weighing in at just 250 grams. It can literally fit in the palm of your hand!

Because it is so small, the Mavic Mini is ideal for travel, as well as other activities where you just want a lightweight option to take along with you.

But don’t let its size fool you. The Mavic Mini takes high quality photos and videos, which means you don’t have to haul a larger, heavier drone around with you when you’re on-the-go to get awesome aerial shots and footage.

All that sounds great, right?


Getting started with a new drone can seem a little overwhelming.

You may be thinking:

* How do I know if it’s the right drone for me?
* I don’t want to spend hours trying to figure out how to set it up or reading the boring manual.
* It’s probably going to take me a while to figure out how to use it… or I’ll have to pay hundreds of dollars to attend an in-person training so someone else can teach me how to fly it.
* What if I end up crashing the drone and wasting the hundred
s of dollars I just spent on it?

Those are all valid points.

If you end up buying a drone that doesn’t have the features you need, or if you buy one that has too many features that you’ll never use, you’ll find out pretty quickly that your hard-earned money could’ve been spent on a drone that would’ve actually fit your needs.

You’ve probably seen some cool drone applications that you want to try out for yourself.

On the one hand, if you buy a drone that doesn’t have the features that you’ll need to accomplish what you want to do, you’re probably not going to use it like you thought you would… and it’ll probably end up collecting dust on that shelf or in that drawer or closet with all the other things that you had great ideas for, but just didn’t end up using.

On the other hand, if you only want to use your drone for fun and end up buying a drone that has features that are super advanced, you’ll have wasted money on a more expensive drone that’s loaded with technology you’ll never use.

And even if you do find the perfect drone for you, you’ll still be faced with the daunting task of trying to figure out how to assemble the thing. Not to mention the hours you may find yourself spending reading a manual that probably uses words only a seasoned drone pro would understand.

If you decide against reading the manual, you’re probably going to be doing lots of trial and error, attempting to find out what each button on the controller does.

Once you’re ready to fly, you may start to realize that you don’t really know how to operate a drone. Seeing your drone in pieces on the ground would really be the cherry on top of your already miserable experience, huh?

You could just suck it up and pay the hundreds of dollars that an in-person drone training organization would charge. I mean, hey, you’ve got to figure out how to use this drone somehow, right?

Before you call that expensive drone school you saw online, hold on a second.

What if you could learn how to set up your drone (without reading the manual), learn all of your drone’s features, AND how to fly it with ease from the comfort of your own home?

Here’s what our students have to say about the course…

Kyle L.

"Whether you want to fly a drone for a job or even just a hobby, it is still very necessary to learn the basics of using one, as they can be somewhat difficult to learn at first. After having this course recommended to me, I can say that it has helped me immensely in such a short span of time! From not having even the slightest idea on how to assemble or use my Mavic Mini, I can safely say I feel much more confident with my growing skills and knowledge as a drone flier in general after taking this course. It is a perfect mix of straightforward and enlightening knowledge, and you’ll feel much more assured as a drone user by the end of it. Thank you Drone Launch Academy, I would definitely recommend this course!"

Julian R.

"Thorough and well-researched. This course gives even a novice drone pilot the tools they need to achieve creative freedom. No longer held back by knowledge of drone operation, only by imagination."

Caleb N.

"I haven’t 100 percent completed the Mavic Mini course but I'm loving it so far. One of the things I like are the review quizzes after each section. They aren’t too long and all use practical knowledge that I'll need. I have taken a few drone courses and a lot of them waste my time giving me random things to study and learn about that I won’t use. One of the sections I’m looking forward to is flight exercises! It’s practical for when you’re trying to get into flying, because you learn the basic shots which are most useful. I'm so excited to get through the course and excited that it teaches you about the app and settings as well! I can’t wait to learn more!"
