The Mavic Mini uses a new APP called DJI FLY. It’s a very simplified version for the DJI GO 4 application. The DJI FLY is designed to make flying easy for new beginners, so there’s not of settings that you can change, but there are a few.

Photo mode

Singe image: take one single shot.

Time shot: take series of photos, from 2 -60 seconds.

EV: exposure value; adjust if need be. If our exposure is too dark, we can adjust the brighten. If it is too bright, we can lower it down a lit bit.

Auto: switch manual to set shutter speed and ISO.


If you are brand new to drones, maybe you’ve just pick up the Mavic Mini as your very first drone what you’re gonna find sometimes when you flying at a very bright and the foreground or the ground is really dark. The ground is gonna be underexposed possibly or maybe the sky is overexposed. Sometimes it’s just a matter of adjusting your camera angle by using the scroll wheel at the back of remote controller.

If you have too much sky in there, but you want to get more of the ground, just lower your camera down a bit. There is not much sky showing the image and gonna be better exposed. While the problem is that sometimes your exposures gonna be jumping around as you are moving and flying in different directions. To help prevent the exposure values from jumping around and getting some really uneven videos, it is beneficial to lock the exposure.

Video Mode

Rocket: The Mavic Mini flies quickly into the air with the camera pointing down and following its subject. You can easily set the altitude limit to 12, 18, 24, 30 or 36 meters.

Circle: The Mavic Mini circles its subject at a constant height and distance.

Dronie: The Mavic Mini flies backwards and upwards at the same time, while the camera remains aligned with the subject. Again, you can easily set the height limit to 12, 18, 24, 30, or 36 meters.

Helix: The Mavic Mini flies spirally upwards and away from the subject at the same time. The same height limits apply as for Rocket or Drone.
