DJI Mini 4 Pro – Detailed Review of Its Specs & Features

We all know there’s no any close substitute to DJI drones even in 2024, despite the fact that the drone market has become quite big in the last few years. We have seen good quality exo drones and Autel drones too, recently. The exo-drones are pretty decent in many ways. But this new, DJI’s Mini 4 Pro is a lightweight drone, weighing less than 249 grams. This weight includes the Intelligent Flight Battery, propellers, and a microSD card. Because it’s under this weight limit, you generally don’t need special training or certification to fly it in most countries. So, definitely, it’s also important for everyone to check local laws and regulations before taking it off. We are in 2024 and many drones are lined up for 2024-25, but for some reasons, some of those could become close to them in quality, specifications, battery durability and flight timing etc.

#1 Specification Table of DJI Mini 4 Pro

Here is the run-down of DJI Mini 4 Pro drones specifications in the table which give a sneak peak into what we are buying actually. We have explained them in details below than that table with all the necessary details which make this drone a great choice for everyone, and of course that you can read there as well.

We have that we did fold it up, the drone’s dimensions are approximately 148 mm long, 94 mm wide, and 64 mm high. When unfolded with the propellers attached, it measures around 298 mm long, 373 mm wide, and 101 mm high.

#2 Flight Performance

Now, let’s talk about flight performance, as we have already seen and observed how DJI Mini 3 Pro, DJI Air 2S and other popular 2024 drones perform. Here are details about different aspects of DJI Mini 4 pro when it comes to its flight performance:

I) Max Ascent Speed

It can climb at a rate of up to 5 meters per second in different flight modes

II) Max Descent Speed

Descending speed matches the ascent speed, reaching up to 5 meters per second

III) Max Horizontal Speed

At sea level, it can zip along at a maximum of 16 meters per second in Sport Mode, 12 meters per second in Normal Mode, and 12 meters per second in Cinema Mode

IV) Max Takeoff Altitude

With the DJI Mini 4 Pro Intelligent Flight Battery, it can reach an impressive 4000 meters above sea level. If you’re using the DJI Mini 3 Series Intelligent Flight Battery Plus, the limit is 3000 meters. Keep in mind that additional payloads (like propeller guards) can affect propulsion, so avoid adding those when using the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus

#3 DJI Mini 4 Pro Remote Controller Details

Some ground details of the DJI Mini 4 Pro’s remote controller as they have improved many featured on it. we found it necessary to give you ground breaking details about it. Here you can see below, we have covered every aspect of this RC which pretty much excels the race. So, as a whole, we have noticed–the DJI Mini 4 Pro’s remote controller has been toppled with features, allowing is to fly smoothly and capture stunning aerial footage with ease.

f) Operating Temperature – Ranges from -10°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F) for optimal performance.

#4 Flight Endurance & Other Details

Like other features of DJI Mini 4 Pro that we have discussed, its flight endurance also needs to be considered very important and talk about. We have had to monitor it closely to see how it shows that. We have mentioned below what we have read and observed about its flight endurance:

I) Max Flight Time

With the standard Intelligent Flight Battery, it can stay airborne for up to 34 minutes. If you opt for the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus (not available in Europe), that extends to 45 minutes. These times were measured under controlled conditions, flying forward at a constant speed in a windless lab environment.

II) Max Hovering Time

When hovering, it can stay aloft for 30 minutes with the standard battery and up to 39 minutes with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus (again, not sold in Europe).

III) Range & Distance

a) Max Flight Distance 

It can cover up to 18 kilometers with the standard battery and up to 25 kilometers with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus. These distances were measured while flying at specific speeds in a windless environment at 20 meters above sea level.

b) Max Wind Speed Resistance

  • It can handle winds of up to 10.7 meters per second
  • Max Pitch Angle: The drone can tilt up to 35 degrees
  • Operating Temperature Range: It operates between -10°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F)

So in the end we can say that, DJI Mini 4 Pro packs impressive features into its compact design, making it an excellent choice for aerial photography and exploration.
