I've been studying all the available information on the Mini 3, and I must say that, for the prices, the Air 2S is looking like better value.

I am thinking very hard about this, too. My main reason to be undecided whether to buy a Mini 3 or an Air 2S is also related to weight but mainly something else: the full sensor that the Air 2S has. At the end it's not about specs but about the image. I'll wait the first tests and tryouts and will look for what people say about video image quality, the new sensor and - the new raw mode, which is essential for me as a filmmaker.


The price is not so much the issue, and if it ends up that I'll buy both, so be it. But maybe it'll be the Mini 3 first and the Air 3S later (the Air three ess, yessss )

I’m not sure why people compare the Mini line with any other DJI drone. The Mini exists for people like me who want the best features and quality possible without having to register my drone and go to flight school. If you don’t need to do that and/or already have your license the Mini isn’t for you.

Depends.  In EU Air2S will be renegaded to open empty countryside only.  You’ll have to be 150 meters in all directions away from people/property/structures/beaches/parks.  Mini 3 has the same wind resistance and can overfly people in comparison.

Update - the controller seems to be gorgeous (although there are no official specs out yet):

Air2s is a great drone but because of the weight issue its hard to compare these drones.

Also, cost is prohibited (for me) when you then add the RC Pro to the Air 2s, matey in the video is saying the price is £865 (i think it was) for the AC and screened RC, IF that is the price then its a no brainer, ya looking at that price just for the RC Pro. It would be nice to have a screened RC, just a shame there's no allowance for 3rd party apps..

Got to agree with you Bashy on it being a shame about not being able to add 3rd party Apps.  That is one of the things I like about the RC Pro that I got with the Air 2S bundle.
