On am Mavic 2 or Mavic Pro or even a Phantom this can be done with a Zoom Recorder however on the MINI the weight is an issue .

The Adobe audtion software will take the motor noise right out but its the added weight you will struggle with on the Mini

I put either a normal videocam or a zoom-recorder on a tripod and start it before I take of, then just let it run for the entire time I fly. That way, I have a clean sound of the environment (birds, wind, waves etc) with only at the moment of take-off the sound of the drone.

What about a pre-owned GoPro Session? Easily velcroed on the under body and very little additional weight. Attached facing down, you would also get a video in the straight down perspective.

Go Pro is great idea however at 116 grams , its to much for the Mini.

The GoPro session only weighs 73 grams. Might still be a little heavy though on the MM.

I use a screen recorder app to record the environment into which I operate.

Sound recorder in a drone I am afraid wouldn't be very useful, prop sound would easily overcome everything background.

You only hear the motors and props.

The 808 #16 camera captures 720p video with audio and only weighs about 17 grams. I'd rather not add any weight to the Mini, but since all you would hear is the motor whine, you'd only have to do it once and then you could use the same audio for all your videos. ;) Thumbswayup

Prop sound is easily taken out of the equation using Adobe Software and works well but its an extra step in the editing but the weight is the issue on this particular drone .,,.

You could attach a small audio recorder, similar to this to your MM...you'll have to sync the sound in editing but this could be a useful option:

Did you want to record the sound of buzzing propellers? I can't see you're going to get much more than that if the microphone is placed on the drone.

Since there is no mic on the mini and prop noise is an issue, I simultaneously take video with another cell phone and do a Multicam sync in Final Cut Pro. It takes a bit off effort but works fine for me.
