This most likely isn’t a tutorial you’ll see on the DJI YouTube channel anytime quickly and it’s nearly definitely not a advised use for the DJI Mavic Mini – or any of their different drones for that matter – however when a photographer who goes by the identify Dripped discovered his yard infested with a bald-faced hornet’s nest, his go-to was certainly the DJI Mavic Mini.
Effectively, okay, his go-to was to name round and get some quotes from native firms to have the nest eliminated however after receiving quotes that he says have been “into the 1000’s”, he determined to offer it a go himself. That’s the place the Mavic Mini got here into play. Does it actually must be stated that you just most likely shouldn’t do this at house?
You’d suppose such an occasion could be a comparatively brief video, however the whole factor is sort of eleven minutes lengthy, documenting Dripped’s expertise and thought course of as he prepares to do battle with the hornets and their nest. Listening to his thought course of and seeing him strive totally different methods to assault the nest to see what occurred positively made me chuckle a number of occasions, and the drone’s digital camera captured some fairly distinctive footage in elements.
It’s fairly an amusing story of DIY pest management, it actually goes to point out simply how powerful these little drones are. Regardless of crashing thrice in the course of the battle and searching a little bit worse for put on, lined in bug guts, it was nonetheless capable of carry on flying. And this one’s 2-generations previous. I count on the newer DJI Mini 3 Professional would be capable to deal with much more abuse.
