The DJI Mavic Mini 2 is out, but I think Walmart is going to be selling perhaps the original Mavic Mini as the “Mavic Mini SE” for a lower price. We have the original Mavic Mini and like it - so far... That might be a good place to start.
If you want to spend more money, I kind of like the Autel EVO II. IMHO, it is physically bigger than the MM, a bright orange - read, easy to see in the sky. It also has an advertised battery life of 40 minutes, which is probably an honest 30 minutes. I think the latest Mavic Air 2 is 20 minutes, down 10 minutes from the original.
