There are going to be many new pilots who choose the DJI Mini 2 as their very first drone so I have put together this detailed beginners guide and tutorial for the DJI Mini 2 to help new users learn about this drone. We cover all topics that a new pilot should know from the basics of getting ready to take your first flight. Along the way, we discuss some tips to help you have a successful first flight. Some of the topics we cover are what memory to use, activating the drone, updating the firmware, and everything in between. Start here if you are learning to fly a drone and want to learn more.

    So in-depth explanation, the best beginners tutorial so far, and thus the thumbs up and subscribing to support your channel. What would be great if you could do a honest review on filters many say is a must for drones but it didn't prove to be so far, thanks.

    I don't have a phone, so what should I look to get if I'm only interested in one for this drone (don't want one for normal phone usage). Also, where I live in remote Alaska there is very poor to no cell phone connectivity. Does this matter?

      It will only kill the motor when it’s landed. If you’re flying in you pull down on the stick it just lowers altitude. If you’re hovering above the ground and you pull down on the stick a contact that it’s close to the ground and will go into landing mode

    Hi. Very nice tutorial. Have you come across the problem of not being able to connect a drone to the controller? Well, I've just purchased a mini 2 fly more combo. Well, I'm having that problem. I've just followed how you reconnect to the hand controller.
    But all I get is "Connect aircraft" But It is Connected. The screen is blank with red lettering saying "Connect aircraft". The strange thing is. I can actually move the Gimbal up and down with the wheel on the controller. So it is connected. Wouldnt you think? I have read that DJI had a batch of Bad cables. That was causing the problem. I've been wrestling with this problem for a week before Christmas. You see.I had the same problem with the previous new Nini 2. So I returned it to the store. And replaced it with another without question.
    Now I'm on Mini 2 number 2. I've got exactly the same issue. I've used the method of holding down those buttons on the controller. and holding the on the button for four 4 seconds. It still doesn't want to fly. what am I not doing? I was told this drone will work virtually straight out of the box. Not in my case. Please help ed. I'm a retired guy in the UK. And it's doing my head in
    Regards Dave

    Wrong! 250+ grams does not require Certificate everywhere. To monetized your videos in whatever capacity then YES. 250+ Drones in the US does require Registration and a Part 107 Certificate (Trained) is not required unless youre making money from your videos.

    Love this tutorial. I’m looking into getting either the mavic mini or mini 2. This may seem a weird question but when in the air and you turn the drone around facing you and you want to bring the drone back do you push the right stick towards you or away?

    And how do you storage charge the lipo batteries? Is there a storage mode in the charger or do you have to drain them to 50%?

    I love this video! I just got the DJI mini 2 and all the tiny manuals and little videos - it was all to tiny to really learn and absorb. This is a wonderful accessible and simple resource!

      Yes it works well indoors, he may want to consider investing in the prop guards if you do however

    🤔 question so using a phone for the operating the drone does the phone needs cellular service or no ? Because I might need to purchase another phone 🤦🏾‍♂️ just to fly in peace

      No you do not need cellular service or a Sim card in the phone. The only thing is you will not be able to view maps but for most people it’s not an issue. Other than that the drone will function perfectly and as a bonus you won’t get all the annoying phone calls and texts while you’re flying
