DJI CP.MA.00000141.01 First Impressions

"OEM product."

I liked it enough, so I'm buying another one. The DJI CP.MA.00000141.01 is well built, and the controls work well. I can press the button again and continue the flight. Bigger drones will cost much more with more battery life. Below I will list the pros and cons I've got with this drone.

  • DJI Mavic Mini Two-Way Charging Hub Charger Drone Accessory - Charge 3 Batteries
  • Conveniently charge multiple battery packs with the Two-Way Charging Hub for Mavic Mini from DJI.
  • This hub can hold up to three Mavic Mini battery packs and charge them all in sequence. That means that one battery will fully charge, then the next, then the next; until all three are fully charged. If you use MB2-2400mAh-7.2V packs, it will take up to 4.5 hours to charge all three packs, but if you use MB3-1100mAh-7.6V batteries, all three will charge in up to 2.5 hours.
