there are many many videos on the web ,download the manual from the DJI site and when you get your new drone make sure you study the regs and rules governing safe flying you will find them on the CAA web site and welcome to the forum

There are so many answers and suggestions in this forum already that you may want to just use the search, at the top of the page. My suggestion, don’t fly in wind or low over water.
Welcome and best of luck.

Greetings and welcome to the forums. The video editor I use is VSDC - they have both a free and paid version. A bunch of YouTube videos on how to use it and it's features. HERE is a link to their web.

There was a very similar thread about a week ago and some of our members gave excellent detailed advice in addition to what you’ve already received here. See if you can find that thread. One quick suggestion is to download the free UAV app. It’ll tell you if it is safe to fly (winds).

Congratulations! Take your time and learn how the drone flies.
Read the manual then read it again... On page 33 of the Mavic Mini User Manual is the layout and description of the Camera View. I recommend utilizing the Safety features under System Settings. Here you can control Max Altitude, Max Distance, Auto RTH Altitude settings, and Update Home Point
