Gonna buy my first drone Thoughts
« on: November 28, 2022, 10:13:35 AM »
Ive never had one before. want one that doesn't require a license. I want one for some very basic use and not sure how into it I will get.

Costco is having a Cyber Monday deal on a DGI Mini 2 drone bundle looks like it puts it just under $400.  Im not afraid to spend more but id like to keep it under 6-700. likely uses are some light videography, problem fly some hunting spots after the season is over for a different view, and just trying something different.

Ive always had good luck with Costco electronics, and they are also selling the DGI mini 3 bundle for a reasonable price.

what are your thoughts and experiences?

I looked into drones for business use, which requires an FAA license. I didn't end up getting one. My boss at the time had the DJI mini 2. I think he's upgraded since. But it took excellent video.

I have a dji mini that works great and is really all I need. Use it for work to take photos of the construction plat. The range on those is very good.

The Mini 3 Bundle is $840 but the Mini 2 is $380 less than half the price...hmmm
