I bought the mavic mini 2 the quick transfer does not work super slow, it gives a constant error, and the range here in the city of Miami the most that the drone arrives is 600 M away with many errors, and the battery lasted the longest is 20 minutes  .  I'm not happy at all I'm thinking of returning the product

BenBethel - this is not true! There is a different place to set Quickshot video settings like resolution. There are a few posts here and YouTube videos on how to do it. It is confusing/odd but you can indeed record Quickshots in 4K.

It's a good day to fly,

You can return if you like but most drones will do no better and probably worse for distance in Heavy urban environments. 31 minutes is in zero wind, you will not get that in real life I got 21 minutes with 20% battery left. But again another drone will probably not get much more. The wireless transfer is new so I would not get rid of the drone because it doesn't work right now for you, I haven't even tried it as I use a USB C cable for transfer.

600M distance (especially in the city) is well beyond the line of sight required by the FAA for UAS isn't it? And how do you fly in a city without flying over people or vehicles? Just because the device has the ability to go that far does not make it legal. My car can top out at 150MPH but I can't drive it that fast on any road in the US. Not knowing the laws is not an excuse to break them.

5. Keep your drone within your visual line of sight, or within the visual line-of-sight of a visual observer who is co-located (physically next to) and in direct communication with you.

and

8. Never fly over any person or moving vehicle.

It's a good day to fly,
Michael

I didnt think that either at first but realized that you can 1: select quickshots, 2: enter camera settings and change resolution to 4K. And it works.

Hey Chad. Thank you for the video post.

I have noticed the same "issue" when pointing straight down 90 deg. that the aircraft slows down drastically. Maybe as you mention a safety thingy. It could probably be due to the lack of obstacle sensors.

I am a little curious about your ND filter. I have not yet seen ND filters here in Denmark for Mini 2 so I wonder if you can tell me if the filters from the old Mini will fit Mini 2?

Pretty happy with the MINI 2 4K video - here is a short one taken in my local neighbourhood.

Thanks for sharing!   My new Mini 2 arrived on Friday the 13th.   So far having a blast learning to use this drone and the software.   First few flights were in windy weather with gusts up to max of about 38 mph and it flew well, though the gusts did buffet it quite a bit.  In steady 20mph winds one would be hard pressed to know while reviewing video that it was windy out, only dead giveaway was the flag fully horizontal in my film.  Trick I learned from long distance shooting, if flag is horizontal steady 20 to 25 mps winds, if flag up at about 45 degree it is constant 10-12 mph wind.    So far I am quite happy, but I am quickly seeing I will need a bright skin for it to see it at any type of distance away, the size and color cause it to blend quickly into the sky.
Last night, I was out of work at 4pm home by 420 pm, and the fall sun was quickly setting.  I had zero winds, so first opportunity to fly quickly in no winds and at dusk.  I had to put the 4k camera into full manual mode for it to see properly, auto mode just was too dark.   I quickly made these adjustments and than flew it up to 144 feet which with high winds in earlier flights was highest altitude achieved to date where I felt safe with new drone.   I pushed further up to 244 feet on this outing.  I was welcomed with a beautiful view of nearby lake and the mountains, in full beauty of 4k.  This was I believe my 7th flight with it and 2nd flight with the new tablet holder for it.  I spent the next 6 minutes doing some basic flight manuevers getting used to manually flying this small drone.   Seems like I was catching on very fast, jumped my game up to some more complex manuevers and minutes  later landed for the night.   

I am looking forward to Spring and calm winds when I aim to push my flying abilities further.  I can already tell that I am hooked for life on this new hobby.  All of my flights to date being a rookie at this have stayed within 100 meters horizontally from me and under new max of 244 feet.   I am learning and I do not want to push the safe envelope, I want to ensure I have many flight hours under belt and am use to this craft before pushing further away.  The size of unit and my 50 year old eyesight require that I skin it with a bright skin to make it easier to visually track drone at any type of distance, this seems to be a necessity for my old poor eyes.

Enjoy the Mini 2, my first impressions thus far is that I am very happy with it as my secondary drone, my primary being the Mavic 2 Zoom.
