DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone Description and Specifications

This is information on the small aerial drone DJI Mini 3 announced on May 10, 2022.
This aircraft is subject to regulations of Aviation Law in Japan.
Unlike the conventional DJI Mini series, this aircraft weighs 249g, no 199g JP version, so it is subject to The "Flight Rules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" of the revised Aviation Law in Japan. In addition, after purchase, you need to register with the "drone registration system". See below for details.

What is DJI Mini 3

DJI Mini 3
DJI Mini 3 is a ultra-compact aerial drone with a takeoff weight of 249g made by DJI, announced on May 10, 2022 and released on May 17. It is a higher level model of previous DJI Mini 2 released in November 2020.

Product features


The feature of this model is the enhancement of the camera sensor. Effective pixels of the sensor have been increased from the previous DJI Mini 2 's 12MP to 48MP, video shooting supports 4K60FPS / H.265, and photos can be taken in 48MP RAW. The camera also supports vertical images (portraits). You can also shoot 1080p / 120fps slow motion video. As a result, the maximum video bit rate will reach 150 Mbps. The gimbal can also be turned upwards by 60 degrees (previously up to 20 degrees).
The flight time has increased by 3 minutes to 34 minutes, and with the large capacity "Plus" battery, it is possible to fly for 47 minutes.
Equipped with a new three-way obstacle detection system: front, rear, and bottom. The live view resolution of the controller has also been increased from 720p to 1080p. You can choose from two types of controllers: the same "RC-N1" as Mini 2 and the new "DJI RC" that has a display and does not require a smartphone. Performance such as the size and flight speed of the aircraft is almost the same as DJI Mmini 2.

Compliance with Japanese laws and regulations


With the tightening of restrictions on Japanese aviation law (for takeoff weights of 100g or more) , which will be applied from June 20, 2022, the lighter Japanese version prepared for the conventional Mini series has disappeared. Unfortunately, the locations where you can fly without an application are severely restricted in Japan. And you will also need to register with "Drone Registration System" and use "Remote ID" feature. The remote ID function is not supported at the time of release. They say, "We plan to support the remote ID function in a future firmware update."
By the way, the aviation law restrictions will also apply to DJI Mini 2 and DJI Mavic Mini . Please be careful if you already have these.

Product composition


DJI Mini 3
The product package includes the drone body, one battery, controller and accessories. You can choose from three types of controllers: new DJI RC, same DJI RC-N1 as the DJI Mini 2, and no controller. If you already own Mini 2, you can also use its controller with Mini 3. There is no "Fly More Combo" setting that includes accessories such as a carrying case, spare batteries, and charging dock e.t.c. If you need this, you will need to purchase a separate "Fly More Kit".
The price is USD759.00 for the model with RC-N1, USD909.00 for the model with DJI RC, and USD669.0 for the model without controller. DJI Mini 3 Pro Fly More Kit Plus (with Plus type batteries) will be available for USD249.00.

DJI Mini 2 will continue to be sold at its traditional price.

Pre-launch information leak


This time too, a lot of information was leaked more than a month before the product was announced. A drawing on March 7, 2022, a video showing package photo and chassis on March 16, 2022, and a video showing battery and other specifications on April 2, 2022, and Detailed specifications of DJI Mini 3 Pro on April 21, 2022, Was leaked. It was rumored that there are two types, the Pro version and the regular version, but at the moment only the Pro version has been announced.
Convert aerial video by DJI Mini 2 to 3DCG model in Meshroom and display in blender With free software called Meshroom, you can generate 3DCG objects from aerial videos shot with drone. See below for details.
