there is a drone for every application in my book.   this drone may not be for everyone. i recommend to read and do your homework, before buying any drone.

Am excited to get this. Was hoping it would be soon, ordering on oct 30 at 1400, but it will take a long time. not shipping until dec 5?
I am getting for travel weight savings with minimal quality loss, but it may not make the winter trip if it doesnt ship soon.

Hey guys, so just wanting to check if anyone has tried the Samsung s10 5g in the Mav Mini controller.
A) does it fit properly? I only ask as the dimensions for the phone vs controller say the phone is around 2mm too big.
B) is the software compatible?
Surely someone has tried it by now....

Yes, I agree with the "research". This forum is helpful and there are plenty of YT videos to help with decisions. I have a Mavic Air and now eagerly waiting on arrival of my MM.

I have a remote fits 8 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2! But with a different wire.

And the compatibility of the DJI Fly control program see in the app store, your declared compatible.

It's wifi so probably not.

Just bought one of these things and can't figure out how to post my issue as a new thread in the forums:

Help! I have bought a Mavic Mini, and I cannot charge the remote. There are only three cables included in the box which fit into the remote controller port: a tiny remote-to-usb-C, a tiny remote-to-micro-USB, and a tiny remote-to-apple-lightning. My phone is USB C so I can use this to link the phone and remote. But when I plug the remote into my USB C charger via the remote-to-usb-C cable, it doesn't change. I've turned it on (it beeps constantly with one flashing battery light) and left it, and I've turned it off and left it. It doesn't charge at all. How do I charge it?

You use the USB to Micro USB to charge the controller. Two of them came in the Fly More combo, I'm not sure what comes with the standard version but I assume it's the same.

Great stuff!
Even if it only lasts real usable 25 min, its a big improvement over the Spark.
I wonder if it can be flown with the Spark's R/C? DJI anyone?

According to all documentation the answer is no. Maybe some resourceful users will figure out something.

The remote/controller uses the same cable that you use with the drone.  The white cable.  It is a standard USB-A to Micro USB-B.  So it does need to go into the remote/controller in a certain orientation. Although the port on the controller is an even rectangle, so you can't tell which way to insert, there is an image to the right of the port that shows you the orientation.  .  Interestingly you'll notice the orientation is opposite of how you plug into the drone.  But it's easy, just pay attention to diagram on controller and shape of port on drone.

I haven't gone through all the posts in this thread but just wanted to add that it's convenient that you can charge the batteries for the Mavic Mini with a USB port in your car.

All looks very good - BUT where the hell is it. Pre-ordered 31st Oct. Release 11 Nov - now a week later and still my order says in process. When a book or music is released it is available on the day. So why are DJI so slow?

I am new as a dronist, but I love it!!! The tiny Mini is perfect for beginners,
so easy to fly! Unfortunately, it is raining cats and dogs here in Germany
and I cannot fly...
Here is a short clip of my second flight. The range in a hilly area is impressive!

Where can you fly anyway...look at where you cannot fly in the uk
Built-up and busy areas
Never fly closer to built-up and busy areas than 150m.

Never fly above these areas at any height.

Examples of built-up and busy areas:

cities and towns
villages
beaches and recreational parks that are part of a city, town or village
housing estates
schools and offices
retail, warehouse, industrial and business parks
theme parks
so what's left???
i used to fly my phantom 4 on my local parks and a huge playing field at the rear of my old school but by the looks of it now there is nowhere to go legally not even in my own back garden...was going to buy a MM but don't think i will bother.

Waiting to watch some real reviews. Especially interested to see how it can stand against quite strong wind (that was I think one of the problem for Spark)

It does better than I thought in the wind, with my weather app saying 15mph and there were 20-25mph gusts and the footage was stable when I sent it up.  It seemed to be rocked around a little bit, but not to the point where it would be messing up the video or stressing the drone.
