The FCC version of the Mavic Mini only has 5.8Ghz
If your Mavic Mini is the FCC version, then you can fly it in countries and regions of FCC and SRRC, as well as 5.8 GHz-supported CE countries and regions.
In an unobstructed environment free of interference, the FCC Mavic Mini’s max image transmission distance can reach 4 km in the FCC countries and regions, can reach 2.5 km in the SRRC countries and regions, and can reach 500 m in 5.8 GHz-supported CE countries and regions.

In the US you can only get the FCC version. Your drone has just 5.8Ghz (which is the "better" frequency as it's less prone to interference) and it can reach 4km while flying in the US.

Hi Christian, you can switch the channel between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz if your drone is the CE version. Firstly, please set the channel mode to "Manual", before the aircraft takes off, you can choose from the channels shown on the bottom of the app. The channel numbered above 140 is a 5.8 GHz, and there are five of them (four in Korea). The other 13 channels are 2.4 GHz channels.

If you bought your MM in the US or from a DJI authorized retailer and you gave them an address thats in the US, you'll get the FCC version. The FCC version only has the 5 GHZ band of frequencies.

Only the CE or European model of the Mavic Mini supports both 2.4 and 5.8 GHZ bands. The European version also has a lower transmit power as well. There are other models, like the Mavic Air and such that supports both bands, but that changed with the Mavic Mini. Here are the specs for each model from the DJI website

    Operating Frequency[2]
    Model MT1SS5: 5.725-5.850 GHz
    Model MT1SD25: 2.400-2.4835 GHz, 5.725-5.850 GHz

    Transmission Power (EIRP)
    Model MT1SS5
    5.8 GHz: <30 dBm (FCC); <28 dBm (SRRC)
    Model MT1SD25
    2.4 GHz: <19 dBm (MIC/CE)
    5.8 GHz: <14 dBm (CE)

Thanks DJI Mindy, how does the Automatic channel selection work ?
It has never selected 2.4 Ghz for me in the wild where all channels are free.
When i manually select 2.4 Ghz i have much better Transmission. on 5.8 Ghz and some trees in the Way ~200m away i have Signal loss, with 2.4 never.

Hi, I bought a mini in the Netherlands (Europe). Does this mean that I also have a range of 4 km when I set the GHZ on 5,8. They advertise here with 2 km, so i am a bit confused. Maybe are those 2 km range only in Europa and 4 km outside of Europa? Do you know that?

You have the CE version

2.4 GHz: 2000 m (MIC/CE)
5.8 GHz: 500 m (CE)

Is it possible to buy a remote that gets the 2.4 channels and pair it with my mini?

Both AC and RC would need to be capable of 2.4ghz e.g the CE version

The FCC 5.8ghz model available in the US already has the greatest transmission power and range
Also based on the US GPS location the CE model RC  and AC would revert to the 5.8ghz and you would be worse off range wise at 500m

You could trick the GPS location so that it is elsewhere, but that is another discussion

I'm a little concerned. I got a Mini at Best Buy three weeks ago. Range doesn't seem to be up to par. Strange thing is that when I first turned it on, I had 2.4 and 5.8 ghz wifi on the manual channel selection. Now I only have 5.8. Is it possible I might have accidentally gotten a CE version in the U.S. that somehow has "realized" it was in U.S. and reverted to only 5.8? I know for a fact that initially I had 2.4 and 5.8 frequencies available, and now I only have 5 5.8 channels in manual or automatic. I'm past my return window for Best Buy. Longest distance I've seen yet is around 1600 feet with breakup.

Look inside the battery compartment and check your model number


    Model MT1SS5 is FCC
    5.8 GHz: <30 dBm (FCC); <28 dBm (SRRC)

    Model MT1SD25 is CE
    2.4 GHz: <19 dBm (MIC/CE)
    5.8 GHz: <14 dBm (CE)

So basically since we have the Model MT1SS5, then we have nothing more than an expensive kids toy to play with in the backyard? Because the 5.8 ghz frequently has terrible range!!! I wish I would have known that before I wasted my money on the DJI Mavic Mini.

please read the numbers carefuly ... the 5.8Ghz on the FCC version is much more powerful than the 5.8 Ghz on the CE version.   If you can't go far with your FCC is probably because of interferences.  Put your phone in airplane mode .. cut the bluetooth on your smartwatch if you have one .. cut everything that can emitt a signal around you.   Yesterday i was able to fly my MM  ( FCC )  1.2 Km away with no problem .. i could have go farther if i wanted.  Im actually very happy to own a FCC version if you ask me.

I did read the numbers carefully and I do have the FCC model. You are bragging about 1.2 km? Are you really serious? I work for an internet company and I do know for a fact that 2.4 ghz has much more range. I just received my range extenders, shut my Bluetooth off of my smartwatch, shut the wifi and Bluetooth off of my cellphone and it is still terrible. I think you guys falsely advertised on the Mavic Mini BIGTIME.

Thank you. A simple no bar answer.

What range are you getting ? Please define "terrible range" And yes I can fly easily over 1km on FCC 5.8  but I didn't try farther yet..what you need ? A proof ? Lol.  Just trying to help here . It's an special enhanced 5.8  Wifi signal ..not the regular 5ghz wifi signal from an internet router *wink* and I suppose you know that because you work for an Internet company right ?

Just look at the pic ..1020m   that's a big backyard don't you think ? Oh and I never lost the signal , the RC signal icon don't work at all when you replay a flight log. It's currently bugged.

It will go a long way in the right conditions -

If you want a drone to fly in an area with interference you need to spend more (at least double) and get one with occusync.

2.4Ghz may travel further but is generally subject to much more interference, also if you work in this field you should know to look at the power, the FCC transmits 5.8Ghz at 30 dBm which is way more powerful than the CE drone (2.8Ghz 19 dBm and 5.8ghz 14 dBm)

Most people with the CE drone would love to have the FCC version!

You guys are absolutely right on here, so anyone reading these questions and answers on here, you get what you pay for in the drone world.  The mini is a cool little drone to start with. The truth is you can show whatever video you want (which is probably DJI sponsored) and I can show one that shows you are wrong. The mini is a very expensive kids toy and is falsely advertised. Now sugar coat it all you want.

I have to apologize about some of my previous comments on here. I am new at flying drones and was getting very frustrated. I had a great time with it today. I suggest for anyone who is new, to watch all the videos you can on YouTube about the mini, they do help.
