Last year’s DJI Mavic Mini dominated the market for small affordable drones, but lacked the high range and 4K video of its competition. Now, the newly-announced DJI Mini 2 improves on every aspect of the Mavic Mini and costs just $50 more at $450. The DJI Mini 2 is on sale today, just in time for Christmas.

The DJI Mini 2 looks nearly identical to its predecessor but now sports a 4K 30FPS video resolution and can capture RAW photos for professional editing. Its predecessor, the Mavic Mini, has a maximum resolution of 2.7K 30FPS and only processes stills as JPG.

Notably, the DJI Mavic Mini uses the new OcuSync 2 wireless protocol to achieve 2.5 times the range of the original Mavic Mini. Its new motors also accelerate faster than the Mavic Mini’s, and reach a new top speed of 35.8 MPH—nearly 6 MPH faster than the original Mavic Mini. DJI says that the updated motors offer increased wind-resistance, so you can fly through 24 MPH gusts (up from 18 MPH).

The DJI Mini 2 is available now for $450. It costs $50 more than the basic Mavic Mini, but hey, that’s the price for better cameras, motors, and wireless connectivity. You can opt to pay an extra $50 for the Fly More combo, which includes two extra batteries, a charging hub, and a carrying case.
