Don't call it a 'gator, it's a Ranger
I bought a Mavic Mini and it seems to work fine but then again I have nothing to compare it to. I found that I don't have the interest that I thought I would so I've only flown it twice. The Mini being so light can't fight much of a wind. Seems like it is always windy here. Glare is another issue so I've decided I need a calm overcast day to play.
Your situation with with time to kill with the truck might be different. Not to discourage you but it might be tough to find a suitable place to fly when out on the road and somewhat tethered to the truck. An unused athletic field at a park might be a good choice.
