DJI Mini 4 Pro flying

DJI has announced the next in their line of light-weight drones, the Mini 4 Pro. This sub-250 gram drone offers a powerful 48MP camera, up to 45 minutes of flight time, and multi-direction obstacle avoidance.

The mini line of drones from DJI have focused on delivering the best possible camera and flight features with the target goal of a completed flight weight of 249g. This is important for legal reasons. While you most likely still require proper licensing, and this does not exclude you from following the rules of the sky, a sub-250g drone usually does not require direct registration before flight.

The DJI Mini 4 Pro offers a 1/1.3-inch CMOS camera set at 48MP of resolution. Photos at full resolution are good, but the best possible images from the Mini 4 Pro are at 12MP. This pixel-binning technique has been around for a while, greatly improving image quality without needing a larger and heavier sensor.
