It will be my first drone. So i have some questions if anyone could help…
The DJI app doesn’t have great reviews on the app store. Why do you think this is…? Am I likely to have trouble with it when controlling the drone?
I currently own a mobile phone with no UK sim card and thus no data plan ( I was living overseas a few months back ). Is it possible to properly use the app / controller with my iPhone attached without 4G…? Or does it require 4G to help the drone return home via GPS?
What is the best price and place i can purchase the DJI mini 2 from, considering I get the pack with everything included?
Most of the complaints are from people who assume things.
I’ll admit i only saw that the app was android compatible… I didn’t look hard enough in advance (didn’t do my research properly) to realise that there was a device compatibility list… My fault.
However I could not go and complain about the app when i didn’t do the proper research. I understand that someone could want the app to work with their current phone but if it is not the approval list it is moot.
There are inexpensive ways to get it going (mentioned in this and other forums) but many seem to want it to work only with what they have and will just moan.
Very sell them & you get 10% off if you register for a store credit card & they used to offer interest free for 12 months (or pay it off fully when bill arrives )
Otherwise Argos are as good as anything else & will swap if issue under 30 days.
It says £548… if i buy that with cash is it cheaper than usual? or only cheaper if buying with monthly payments you mean?
also, some questions down below seems to suggest a licence is needed…
[Do you have to have a special licence to fly this in public?]
If you live in UK (as of 31st December 2020) and own either the original mini or the Mini 2. You must have an operator ID at a cost of £9 per year. This ID, must be placed ON each and every drone you own. NOTE each time you apply for an operator (every year), the ID will change, so it is suggested, you not permanently mark your drone.
For what it’s worth the Mini 2 is £349.17 on Amazon today. It was also this price on Friday (which made my bite and finally get it) it went back to the £419 price at the weekend, so not sure how long it will stay at £349.17. Is there a new model about to be launched hence the price drop?
You can buy the refresh package direct from DJI afterwards if that is a deal breaker.
548 is for the combo which includes extras, the 350 is only a mini 1 so check the prices carefully on Amazon. I have had no bother with my mini 2 that I got from them and just purchased an extra battery separately. You can get dji refresh separately from dji direct when you register the drone .
