How to Use DJI Mini 2 QuickTransfer to download videos and photos?

One of the new features of the DJI Mini 2 is the QuickTransfer mode. It enables you to download your 4K videos with a faster transmission rate of up to 20 MB/s. Compare to other methods, you don’t need to transfer your files through the remote controller, the DJI Fly app, and directly connect to your Mini 2 drone via Wi-Fi.

This post will show you how to use QuickTransfer to download videos and photos from DJI Mini 2 to your mobile device. Apart from QuickTransfer, there are also other ways you can use to transfer your drone videos and photos, such as downloading files via the remote controller, using a fast card reader, or directly connecting your DJI Mini 2 drone to your PC or Mac via a USB-C cable, check this guide for more details.

Please note:

  1. You NEED to PRESS the QuickTranfer button to confirm the first time you use this to transfer your files.
  2. You may fail when trying to connect the drone at the beginning, just try it one more time.
  3. Make sure that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled on the mobile device before using QuickTransfer.
  4. If your transmission rate can’t reach up to 20 MB/s, it may be because the 5.8 GHz frequency is not permitted by laws and regulations in your area or your mobile device doesn’t support the 5.8 GHz frequency band and Wi-Fi connection.
  5. Use QuickTransfer in an unobstructed environment with no interference and stay away from sources of interference such as wireless routers, Bluetooth speakers, or headphones.

    On the Mini 2, press the Start/ Stop button first, let the software boot up like a full 5 to 10 seconds after turning it on at first, then hold the quick transfer button down for 2 second only after it’s completely gone through it’s rainbow of colors it shows.

  2. I also battled to find it but just look at number 13 on the Aircraft diagram and “voila” … Aircraft Status Indicator / Quick Transfer Button

  3. It is a mess, that DJI always mentions the quick transfer button – but there is no explanation in any document, WHERE this button is?

  4. Where is the quick transfer button?
    I get as far as viewing the album but when i select a file the only thing available is the waste bin. What am i doing wrong?

    1. The transfer button is the long button that illuminates at the rear of the drone. Hold it in for 2 seconds then release. It should flash blue
