This in all probability isn’t a tutorial you’ll see on the DJI YouTube channel anytime quickly and it’s nearly definitely not a prompt 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.
Properly, okay, his go-to was to name round and get some quotes from native corporations 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 simply in all probability shouldn’t do that at house?
You’d assume such an occasion could be a comparatively quick video, however all the 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 attempt completely different methods to assault the nest to see what occurred positively made me chuckle a couple of occasions, and the drone’s digital camera captured some fairly distinctive footage in components.
It’s fairly an amusing story of DIY pest management, it actually goes to indicate simply how robust these little drones are. Regardless of crashing 3 times throughout the battle and searching slightly worse for put on, coated in bug guts, it was nonetheless in a position to 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.
