I think ocusync is worth spending a little extra to get the Mini2.

100% agree DA.  Mini 2 has so much more to offer than the original Mini and the Mini SE.  I just wish they would make Mini 2 compatible with all the functions of DJI Assistant 2 and also release the SDK.

Over on the SDK GitHub page they have committed to supporting it with the SDK version 5.  But no timing yet for that.

Does anyone know if the Litchi app is working with the SE? If not the combination Mini 1 & Litchi does still give the most bang for the bucks! Waypoints and tracking, pano and follow me! Even better than the Mini 2 despite only 2.7K. But in reality you can hardly see the difference between 2.7K and 4K with the naked eye on an average TV screen.

I get it.  I'm sure SDK V5 will be a major rewrite so I have no expectations as to when it will be released.

Maybe next year at the rate they release it.

I just purchased one 3 days ago.  I felt it was a very good value.  My only previous drone was a Parrot AR, so if you are old enough, you'll recognize the mini SE is quite an upgrade!  The two big differences (occusync and 4K) were not important enough to me to warrant the extra money, and so far I have been happy with the choice.

I have the SE and love it!  It's my first DJI drone.  It handles great, the controls are tight and responsive, the stabilization is excellent - it can hold a spot better than any other drone I've owned.  Very impressed.  Takes great photos and vieos.  It has a few minor drawbacks, perhaps the biggest (but not it's fault) is its light weight; a gusty day will challenge it.  Overall I've been having a lot of fun with it.

Thought hard about the Mini 2, but the price bump wasn't worth it for me.  For others it may be, but for my needs and circumstances the SE is perfect and an awesome value!  I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again.  

Honestly, while I would love to have a Mini 2, I wouldn't spend the money on it (and not because it's not good - it is).  If I were to spend that much, I'd just bump up to an Air 2.  If I'm spending more on the Mini 2 then I can probably stretch my budget and go for something WAY better like an Air 2.  Difference between SE and Mini 2 is minor.  Diff between Mini 2 and Air 2 is HUGE.

The SE was my first Drone and I'm so happy with it's performance.

Like others, I didn't see the benefit of the ocusync, so the SE was my choice.

The DJI Fly App is pretty cool, but I really would like to get waypoints and follow me ability.

I tried the Litchi, but it's not compatible with the SE
I paid for the Litchi App, only to find it doesn't work with the SE

Having the ability to have waypoints and follow me would increase the SE's desirability (for me) another 100%
Without it, I feel a little let down.

My preference would be for it to be in DJI Fly App, but if that isn't on their radar, release the info so 3rd parties, like Litchi can do it

I am sorry for heraring that you have paid for litchi but it doesn't works.
But i think dji won't adding these both functions.

Nope.  I downloaded the latest Litchi version and have tried to connect to my Mini SE but with no luck.  It works fine with my Mini 1 though.

The SE and the Mini 2 are two in the same, once the mini 2 get's SDK support the SE will follow.

As a Litchi mini 1 owner, it can do some stuff but it's a poor band aid attempt at best. Not to mention I hardly fly with it since it voids my warranty on use, god forbid it flew away or something happened that would be it for most, not all have drone insurance to cover accidents all because they wanted something that wasn't 1st party supported. I'll wait for a drone that supports it natively then to keep risking the biscuit on Litchi.

For me the choice was simple, the SE can do what I needed for half the cost of a mini2... come on, would anyone buy the 2 without the FMC... Anyway, my needs were to increase my skills, both in flying and filming, and to document our travels. Most of the time my SE will be under 200' and maybe 1/8 mile away so no need for ocusync, and it's extra expense.
