This happened after flying in high wind (25MPH+) and being blown back 100m from my return-to-home location.
I jumped in the car a little too early, thinking I was safe..

Your music selection made watching this video even worse like the ending to a very sad movie. Hope your bird is ok.

Such a sad video. The poor little bird was hanging on for dear life just waiting for an upward push of the stick to save it.  But alas, it didn't come and it finally had to succumb to exhaustion.  Yes, it fought a valiant battle but lost!

My money is on slight damage if any.......

That was painful to watch. My sympathies go out to you and your mini.

seeing this, I made good decision not to buy Mavic  mini, beside my Mavic pro 2 drone... even do Mini is small enough to fit in my waistpouch and can take off from palm,  teknig off  in this wind is very unsafe to fly...

the other day I made some footage of big fortress here in Croatia, but with much stronger wind.  Since I had no other possibilities to return to the site for another flight, I had to do it that day. Drone was flawless. I did get some warning on my phone screent about wind, but since gimbal was so smooth and drone didn`t  woble in the sky I didn`t see any problems to continue flying. And as you can see from that video,  mass of Mavic 2 can resist some windforce...

Sad to see, but what made me wonder : why is the footage looking like it is out of focus in the beginning?

Looks way too windy by looking at the top of the trees, I hope you could get it back without too much hassle, it looks like a lot of berry spikes.

I was flying my mini recently at a lake and wind suddenly changed, it almost stopped due to wind, however S mode helped to add some power and I managed to get it back.

Last year I flew my mavic pro backwards into a maple tree about 75 feet up, the poor mavic sounded like a weed eater grinding its way to the ground, sounded horrible, finally landing on its top. Total damage was 4 broken props and a huge bruise to my ego... I put new props on it, wiped all the mud of it and it’s been running fine ever since...

Hi. I am sorry to know about this unfortunate incident. After this incident are you encountering any issue on the said drone? If you will feel that the drone is not performing properly. I would recommend to please contact our DJI Support Team and send in your DJI Mavic Mini to further check if there are possible internal damages during this incident. Thank you.

Due to the sheer size of the thorn bush.

It took 15 mins to recover the drone.

And few nasty scratches.

I've made that mistake ..... but without all of the elegant production ;-) I am pretty sure no real damage occurred in his case.
