DJI announced the Mini 3 Pro drone on 10th May, the latest drone in its Mini series. The Mini 3 Pro drone weighs 249 grams, which means it complies with many countries’ drone policies and is safe due to its lightweight. Mainly to look at large markets like the United States, Australia, and India. Countries like India have drone weight compliances that need to be followed. DJI has been losing out the market access to India due to non-compliance with drone weight policies. With this new drone, there is a possibility DJI will see a more significant market share in both India and the United States.
The Mini 3 Pro drone is portable and can be folded like other DJI drones, which means it’s perfect for travel as it can fit in a small bag. DJI said that the Mini 3 Pro drone uses a new structural design, and the arms and propellers have been adjusted to achieve a more aerodynamic flight, thereby extending flight time. It also has dual vision sensors in front and rear for safer flight.
As the successor to the Mini 2, the Mini 3 Pro drone has features previously limited to DJI’s high-end Mavic and Air drones. It has improved flight performance, better cameras, longer battery life, and upgraded artificial intelligence. It can shoot 4K 60fps video, and it has a redesigned gimbal that offers more camera angles, such as tilt-up shots and accurate vertical shots that capture images in portrait mode.
The Mini 3 Pro drone is the first drone in the Mini series to offer three-way obstacle sensing, with forward, backward and downward vision sensors. These sensors enable advanced pilot assistance systems to detect safer paths around obstacles during flight. They also work with FocusTrack to select which objects the drone keeps in the center of the frame during flight.
A 1/1.3-inch camera with an f/1.7 aperture can capture up to 48-megapixel images. In addition to 4K 60fps video, it can also shoot HDR video at 30fps and has up to 4x digital zoom depending on the resolution. Compared to the Mini 2, low-light performance has been improved.
DJI’s Mini 3 Pro offers 34 minutes of flight time per charge and has an extended flight battery option that allows up to 47 minutes of flight time. It works with the DJI RC, a lightweight remote with a 5.5-inch touchscreen, and integration with the DJI Fly app.
