Hello,
Newbie here.
Learning how to navigate this forum.
Just bought a Mavic Zoom yesterday but had wanted the Mini to learn on-as it's cheaper if I lose/crash it. Got convinced into buying the Zoom and am hesitant to try to practice with it now. Early background decades ago was in photog/cinematography. Trying to learn everything I can and prevent serious mishaps. Spent a good part of today studying the app, remote controller, settings etc. As well as a bunch of tutorials online. Have it in beginner mode; will try a 1st flight in an open field on my property tomorrow, if it's warm enough.

Sounds like you are taking the right approach by not rushing it. A rule, which I have admittedly violated - and not come away unscathed, is, "Don't do stupid stuff and you won't have stupid accidents".

The good news is drones today are easier to fly, with more safeguards built in to prevent crashing, than those from a few years back.
