What Drones Can My Child Fly?
The DJI Mini 2 - The more serious drone for the family and kids
The Mini 2 is, without a doubt, the ideal drone for children. It is DJI's more serious drone, designed to comply with specific rules due to its weight of less than 250 grams. This drone features components that are similar to those found in larger professional drones, allowing it to be utilized as a stepping stone into professional drone cinematography as children grow older. It has the ability to record video in 4K resolution. The results are ahead of its time compared to other drones this size on the market.
Packed With Features
31 Mins Flight Time
The DJI Mini 2 weighs in at an extremely lightweight 242 grams. This is almost as light as an average smartphone which you may be reading this blog on! This makes the Mini 2 insanely portable.
Another reason why the DJI Mini 2 is one of the best drones for kids is that it is in the Open A1 category. This means the DJI Mini 2 can be flown closer to people than 50 meters and you can fly above people, deeming that it is safe. Because of the 4K camera, this drone appeals to a lot of older youngsters who want to delve into the more serious side of drone photography. Take, for example, capturing images and videos as a hobby and showing off your drone footage to family and friends.
What does my kid need to fly a DJI Mini 2?
A child must have a Flyer ID and the parent who is in charge of the drone at all times must have an Operator ID. The child can fly under their parent/guardian’s supervision. If you want to fly multiple drones for your kids and the family you can fly this under the same Operator ID.
To receive a Flyer ID in the first place, you must be at least 13 years old. You must also be 18 years old to register the drone. If you have to be 18 to register for an Operator ID, you might be asking how you can control a drone. This can be done under the supervision of an adult who has registered for an Operator ID, or you can fly under their supervision if you have your Flyer ID.
