The big news in the drone world this week may well have been the launch of the DJI Mavic Air 2. But with much less of a fanfare, DJI also released something that may well be just as spectacular... and that's a completely updated version of its best-selling Mavic Mini drone.

The $399 sub-250g drone was released just in time for Christmas last year – but thanks to a free firmware upgrade this week, the DJI Mavic Mini now gets a number of significant new features, that make this UAV even better value than before.
