The DJI Mini 3 Pro is the newest addition to the DJI’s Mini series of ultra-lightweight, small drones that pack the performance of larger drones. The new drone camera is a serious upgrade for the series and is currently one of the best – if not the best – small drone on the market.
Here’s what to expect from this palm-sized, sub-250 g drone.
DJI Mini 3 Pro Main Features
- Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing
- Captures up to 4K/60fps video
- 4μm pixels, aperture ratio f/1.7
- Up to 34 min flight time/47 min with Intelligent Flight Plus battery
- FocusTrack with ActiveTrack, Spotlight, and Point of Interest
- MasterShots cinematic capture mode
- Up to 4x digital zoom
- 3 GB internal storage
- Weighs 249 grams
The DJI Mini 3 Pro boasts a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor with dual ISO, and its aperture ratio has been increased to a bright f/1.7. Needless to say, the mighty little drone comes with impressive low-light performance. The Mini 3 Pro also comes with a tri-directional obstacle sensing system and is equipped with backward, forward and downward dual-vision sensors, offering a wider sensing range and improved safety. The camera can also rotate for true vertical shooting, delivering detailed shots ready for social media.
Of particular note is the battery. While exceptionally lightweight, the Mini 3 Pro has an excellent battery – up to 34 minutes of flight time, which is three minutes longer than its predecessor. If you want an even longer flight time, it’s available with an optional Plus battery that is sold separately. If you purchase the Plus battery, you can expect up to 47 minutes of flight time. For a commercial drone in this price range, this is fantastic.
What about storage? Well, that’s less impressive. Sure, with 1.3 GB of internal storage you can snap some photos and record some video but it’s going to fill up quickly. Thankfully, there’s a slot in the back of the drone for a microSD card with up to 512 GB of storage and we highly recommend bringing at least a 32 GB card with you.
The DJI Mini 3 Pro is available for $759 and includes a remote controller. If you already own a compatible controller, you can get the new drone for only $669. There’s also a third option available – Mini 3 Pro drone with the new remote controller with a pre-installed DJI Fly App and a 5.5-inch display for clear viewing even in direct sunlight. Naturally, this option is the priciest of the three and it costs $909.
