Robert from Virginia

Robert wants to get a drone for his son. He bought a cheaper $150 model, but it's harder to fly. What's the best one to get? Leo says to pick up the DJI Mavic Mini. The cheaper model is good for flying and crashing, but without sophisticated GPS control, it'll fly away sooner or later. The Mavic Mini not only has GPS control but also collision avoidance. And it gets better with every update.

Leo says some of the best photos he took on his vacation wasn't with his Sony A7IV, but with his iPhone 11 Pro Max. The Deep Fusion feature does an incredible job. Chris also wanted to talk about the DJI Mavic Mini. He's impressed with its navigation features, and it shoots 2.7K video, which is just fine for most people. And it's very affordable at under $400. Chris uses a DJI Mavic Air and even though he's a pro photographer, he only uses it a few times a year. So the Mavic Mini is a good buy for the casual drone enthusiast.
