just noticed that my Mini2 has over 1000km on it now in about 440 days.  Still on the original props.   How is yours doing?

That's impressive for such a small drone. How are the motors doing, do the motor bells have any play? Still turning smoothly?

Everything is like the day it was new.   Apart from dust that sticks to the hinges.   Although I blow that off with compressed air from time to time.

Sounds like you can put at least another 1000km on it. Right on!

I’m out walking and confirm it’s too hot.  But at least I’ve got brown legs now.

Well then it seems the Mini 3 Pro is getting some favorable treatment as in getting picked to fly more.

Changed my props on my Mini 2 just to be on the safe side. Have had it almost a year with no crashes or rain. Great little drone, way to go DJI.

Hey, count me too but with the original mini 1.

But unfortunately, my mini 1 grounded forever (maybe) for now.

Isn't that the way it always seems to happen.  You're indoors getting things done and just as you finish and head outdoors the skies open up.  

Today is the first non-rain day in a week.  Was looking forward to getting the Mini 3 Pro up in the air, but alas wind gusts up to 35 mph stopped me.  I did try the Air 2S first but got high wind warnings right away so landed and gave up on flying today.

Its not worth the risk is it,   I had the same winds the other afternoon,  was quite the surprise.

My mini 1 cant enter bind mode, and wont connet to the remote.
It looks like some component has a short circuit on the mainboard, which prevents the drone from activating bind mode. But that's okay, I will take it to repair shop later haha

This is my last total milage with mini until grounded now

Wow,  that beats me,  my total is 1847km.  With that mileage on the Mini1 I think you should treat yourself to an upgrade.

For sure.  I didn't want to lose the Mini 3 Pro on the first real flight.  I knew if the Air 2S was getting wind warnings that it was no use trying to get the Mini 3 Pro up.  I just have to accept that the weather is what it is and I have no choice but to try again another day.  

Sent you a PM.

I did test fly mine in 35mph winds,  and it did OK,  but of course if you have to fly into wind you need sports mode and accept its going to be slow.

You are much braver than me as 25 mph is about my upper limit for risk.

I wouldn't fly the mini3 near water in those winds but over land I can land and go fetch it,  and I always follow the rule that I fly into wind and only until I get to 70% battery then I bring it back.
