The Mavic Mini is available in 2 different configurations, the regular Mavic Mini and the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo. The fly more combo has a few different advantages over the regular kit, but it will also cost $100 more than the regular kit. Does it make sense to buy the regular Mavic Mini then buy the other accessories you want? Or do you save money by purchasing the Fly More Combo? In this article, were going to break down the prices of all the components in the Fly More Kit to see how much of a deal it actually is!
Whats the difference between the Mavic Mini and Fly More Kit?
- Mavic Mini Aircraft
- Remote Controller
- (1) Intelligent Flight Battery
- (1) Set of Spare Propellers
- (1) Micro USB Cable
- (1) Gimbal Protector
- (1) RC Cable (Micro USB Cable)
- (1) RC Cable (USB-C Cable)
- (1) RC Cable (Lightning Cable)
- (1) Set of spare control sticks
- (6) Spare Screws for Propellers
- (1) Screwdriver for propellers
On it's own, the Mavic Mini Kit costs $399 USD and is a great starting point for beginners. The 30 minute battery life is enough to have one long flight, but if you want to have a kit that is ready for multiple flights without needing to wait for batteries to charge then the Fly More Combo is the next kit you want to look at!
What is included in the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo that isn't in the Normal Mavic Mini drone?
The Mavic Mini Fly More Combo bundle comes with everything in the original kit, as well as:
- (2) additional Intelligent Flight Batteries
- (2) additional Pairs of Spare Propellers
- (1) additional Micro USB Cable
- (12) additional Spare Screws
- (1) 360 propeller guard/cage
- (1) Two-way Charging Hub
- (1) 18-Watt USB Charger
- (1) Carrying Bag
If you were to add up all of the additional accessories in the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo, it would be $166 - not counting the 18-watt charger, carrying bag or USB cable because they are not available separately for purchase - so all together the total would likely be about $180.
If you plan on buying an additional battery for the Mavic Mini already, theFly More combo is worth it as you get another battery and charging hub (the charging hub will make your like much easier, trust me!). If you're not planning on buying additional batteries, the normal Mavic Mini package will do just fine. But the Fly More Combo really does save you money if you're looking to buy extra batteries and chargers, and DJI gives you additional props, screws and a bag to store everything in.
I used this information to make my decision to buy the Mavic Mini Fly More Combo instead of the regular package, since the batteries and charger alone would me this package worth it!
