DJI Mini has a new model, the DJI Mini 3 Pro. Hold up there. Did we miss the 3? Apparently, we did not. All these renaming and model numbers skipping really had us confused. The Mini was not what it is today when it started. It was part of the Mavic line.
Starting with Mini 2, it became a line of its own. Last year, there was a more affordable model, the SE model, and now the Pro. The new Mini, like the Minis before it, weighs just under 250g (it’s 249g to be precise), thus it does not need to be registered with FAA.
The new DJI Mini 3 Pro is lightweight, portable (obviously), and powerful, and it is the first high-end product of the DJI Mini series. While small and compact, it delivers advanced features like 4K/60fps video, ActiveTrack, tri-directional obstacle sensing, and 90o gimbal rotation to shoot high-quality vertical imaging for social media – all while offering enhanced flight performance and over 30 minutes of flight time.
DJI said the new DJI Mini 3 Pro is also good for inexperienced pilots – thanks to the DJI RC, a lightweight remote controller with a built-in 5.5-inch touchscreen, and the DJI Fly app integrated. With DJI RC, anyone can just take to the skies and start recording without the need to install the app on their smartphones and mount it (the smartphone) to the controller. DJI RC, as the name implies, offers the RC experience.
The DJI Mini 3 Pro retails for US$669 without DJI RC. You can also acquire it with the DJI RC-N1 for US$759, or with the DJI RC for US$909. As before, there is a bunch of accessories to purchase to further enhanced your flying/aerial imaging experience.
