Video transmission can be a worry for some, but 4KM is plenty of range for you to capture what you need. DJI also claims that because the Mavic Mini is so light, it places the device in the lowest and safest weight class of drones, which in many countries may exempt it from certain regulations.
DJI encourages usage of the new DJI Fly app heavily in their promotions. The app offers a simple user experience, that enables you to create cinematic shots with just a few taps. It has Flight Tutorial that can help you get started quicker, and without error.
