DJI has announced a new version of their entry-level Mini SE. The new Mini 2 SE remains a lightweight drone at an appealingly-low price point, but offers an improved radio range, rising from 4km to 10km. The flight time is also boosted by one minute to 31 minutes.

When we checked, the original DJI Mini SE was already out of stock in some places. We don’t know for sure, but this might be a replacement rather than an alternative.
