I came across news about this recently about a supposed walmart listing, but really don't know how true it is since there was no speculation or leaks regarding such release beforehand. The supposed DJI Mini SE though just seems like a rebranded Mavic mini with all the same specs. Interseting that they used the same controller as the one in the Air 2S yet still uses a wifi connection, thus really making it hard to compete with other mini drones with better communication protocols that are also quite cheap.

Yeah, I read it too. On multiple sites.
Not sure if it is legit indeed.

Well it makes sense, re release under the new name scheme with the fixed props so no more UN-commanded descents for mini SE owners, also it's using the new mini 2 body so the old argument about not enough cooling for 4k now goes out the window.  Will be interesting to see but not a surprise at this point, hope they added some more app features outside re-shipping the mini with the newer batteries/remote/and props.

I guess also the radio module is revised. Single band but not pure Wi-Fi, something like Ocusync with only one band enabled.
Also bluetooth is present, could be used to transmit video streaming without the need of the cable.

The price should be really cheaper then the MINI2.

If I recall I think Dji did something like this with the spark range as well. Re-branded and launched

It just a re-branded Mavic Mini with different controller. Also different color on props. Get it at Walmart.

Yeah, really don't get why they won't just enable 4k since they're using the same camera and same body now anw. From the specs though, seems like the app features would be pretty same sadly.

Not so sure but the package that was posted did say it was still operating at wifi. So I guess it means it is using the FCC Mavic Mini version with only 5.8ghz band and 2.5 miles range. Was really hoping for occusync at least. Bluetooth also not so sure since it is quite slow, incredibly long to transfer videos over bluetooth.

But yeah agreed, it should be way cheaper than the mini 2

Yeah I think so too. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think they repackaged it into a fmc package complete with remote and 3 batteries. Before I think the remote was sold separately.

No.  The Mini (without the combo) came with the remote (with phone cables), one battery and charger, and as i recall one spare set of props.  The Fly More Combo added two extra batteries, the 3 slot charger, additional spare props, prop guards, and the carry case.

Oh I mean with the Spark, I remember the controller was sold separately at first for the Spark. The Mini had the remote all throughout since it can't connect to the phone directly.

Initially seems like a marketing ploy to dump remaining Mini inventory.

True but DJI did include 1 new feature that I noticed, AEB is advertised. Where the mini 1 never got that feature, Oh boy DJI you really out did yourself with this one. I still HIGHLY doubt it, but maybe the inclusion of RAW has finally been added.

Walmart Listing.

This is a "technical" upgrade and not just a re-badge, it's using the mini 2 shell which has improvements over the mini 1 (If they were clearing stock, they wouldn't be using the 2.0 shell and would finish out the remainder of 1.0 shell).

The larger lipo battery will give the mini more power to fight the wind better while also weighing less, the new radio while still wifi or single band means if you buy a air2s or w/e you can keep using your existing controller to which DJI is an UP SELL. You buy one drone and controller and then they can sell you just the drone, but when the battery dies in your one remote and you can't replace it without buying a second controller it'd perhaps make more sense to have individual controllers so that you don't go for a flight and end up borked.

As far as the software features go, it's anyone's guess. I see AEB advertised on the walmart listing but even walmart has a disclaimer that the features listed aren't 100%.

To stay relevant again the Fimi and now the Hubsan, I would like to think we will see more app support (Pano, AEB, Raw, and some form of stationary tracking) if they want to remain competitive.

Do you not see the orange tips? They are the mini 2 props which are stiffer then the mini 1 props, so therefore "Fixed" props.

DJI desperate to get young people flying, they are going to set this price low to see if younger people will bite, thy have all the parts equipment etc so why not. But it seems no matter what drone they release the big buying sector is still 35/60 with 40/50 by far the biggest purchaser , I’m certain they are trying hard to get teens and up so trying this on price. Cameras won’t mean a lot to young people and I still believe They will release a Mini 3 with better camera or better camera features for discerning users.

I guess with "fixed" he assumed one piece, but in this case it's props that have "fixed" the uncommanded descend issue. Hope it's really that. If it really IS a mini with at least the same 2.7K camera AND cheaper, I would probably jump on it for my kids....
I already have a MA2 in my fleet and another original Mini on the way.

Obv we don't know the price yet but I've heard it to be around $50 less then the mini 2, so I don't know who would be in the market for a mini 2 and see this and think Sweet $50 saved, oh wait when the mini 2 has 4k and so on why would anyone pick the SE mini over the 2?  It'd have to be much less IMO to sway buyers even first timers to pick up an SE over the mini 2.

My best guess is that the mini 1 was already under 249g, with this lighter battery that will provide better thrust, and will weigh closer to the JAP 199g of the mini 1 so that makes me think it'll meet the mtom weight.
