DJI Mini SE: A cheap entry-level drone that will not be sold globally
DJI has unveiled the Mini SE, its latest drone. As its name suggests, the Mini SE is an entry-level model in DJI's range. The Mini SE has leaked already, as we have covered previously.
DJI states that the Mini SE combines the components of the Mavic Mini in the housing of the Mini 2. Hence, the Mini SE has a 12 MP camera that can shoot 2.7 K videos, a 3-axis gimbal and a 10 km range. The Mini SE can only fly for up to 30 minutes at a time, though.
However, while the Mini SE appeared at Walmart in the US, DJI will not sell the drone there. The company will not sell the Mini SE in Europe, either. According to TechRadar, DJI will sell the Mini SE in Brazil, Malaysia, Russia and other 'markets where consumer drone use is emerging'. Clearly, it planned to release the Mini SE in the US, until something changed. Ultimately, DJI's blacklisting in the US appears to have held back the company's ambitions, somewhat.
