DJI Mini 2 cold-weather and wind performance
The DJI Mini 2 is being put to the test in these two videos. Officially the Mini 2 temperature operating range is from 32° to 104°F (or 0° to 40°C), however as you can see, the drone can even handle temperatures that are in the low twenties. You will get a warning message when the temperature drops too low, and keep in mind that your flight time will be significantly reduced as well. So make sure you factor this in when flying so that you can bring the drone back safely.
The DJI Fly app gives a warning when temperatures drop too low for the Mini 2.
Also, using the remote controller to charge your smartphone will not work as well when it’s cold out.
Yes, it was indeed cold and windy!
Tips for improving the DJI Mini 2 cold-weather performance
If you bring any spare batteries with you when flying your DJI Mini 2 in cold weather, make sure you keep them warm. For instance, put them in a pocket inside your jacket, close to your body to prevent them from cooling off too much. Furthermore, bring a pair of warm gloves as otherwise, the drone may outlast you as the pilot, s you can see in the second video below. Handwarmers like these from Amazon can help you to keep your hands and batteries nice and warm.
