DJI MINI 3 Pro: All features and prices confirmed!

DJI MINI 3 Pro

DJI has redesigned its Mini drone for its third generation, which will be officially launched on 10 May according to the leaks. Rumor after rumor revealed all important features of the upcoming DJI MINI 3 Pro. Promising a flight time of up to 47 minutes and a range of 12Km (7.5 miles) the MINI3 Pro ranks on the top of our under 250grams drones of 2022 list.

Many say the new design makes the MINI 3 look like a flying frog. The first thing I notice is the front/rear obstacle avoidance sensors. Unlike its contenders, they are both positioned in the front.

Similar to the FIMI X8 MINI, the DJI MINI 3 Pro will be available with two types of batteries. While the ‘standard’ pack provides about 34 minutes of flight time, the ‘Plus’ one has an amazing 47 minutes of battery life.

First 4K@60fps camera on a sub250g drone? YES!

The DJI Mini 3 Pro drone promise to capture stunning 4K@60fps videos and 48MP RAW photos. For dramatic Full HD slow-motion footage, you have an option for 1080@120fps video format. This kind of video capability makes it unique in its weight class.

DJI Mini 3 Pro is equipped with a 1/1.3-inch CMOS image sensor which comes with dual native ISO and supports the direct output of HDR images. Thanks to the low aperture (f/1.7) lens it is suitable for night videos.

Insane range with the new OcuSync 3.0

The third generation DJI Mini features the OcuSync 3.0 (DJI O3) flagship-level video transmission system. It provides a 1080p@30fps live feed at distances up to 12 km. The MINI 3 Pro will be available with the standard RC-N1 remote control and the new DJI RC Pro transmitter with a built-in FPV screen.

  1. I just watched a test video with the 47 min battery (plus edition), due to the extra weight the MINI 3 is even more stable! well done DJI!

  2. First DJI drone that has amazing range even in CE/Europe mode. Some dude on YouTube got 7KM with MINI 3 Pro and RC smart controller.

    • MINI 3 has a dedicated slow-motion mode: 1920×1080@120fps
      Answering your question:
      2.7K: 2720×1530@24/25/30/48/50/60fps
      1080p: 1920×1080@24/25/30/48/50/60fps

  3. After the latest firmware update, the old DJI RC Pro works with the MINI 3 Pro. Pretty cool, so now you can buy just the drone and save some money.

  4. Really wanna know how far Mini 3 Pro will fly with the plus battery pack. What is the max distance that can travel with one charge?

    • Philip Bloom says n Facebook ‘had it officially confirmed as 10 bit today after speaking to the camera team from DJI HQ, they didn’t think they could definitely do it until Monday.’
      Fingers crossed!

  5. Is it possible to buy the fly more plus kit separately (with a longer flight time battery)? I already ordered the MINI 3, and next month I want to order the accessory combo.

  6. It seems that the Mini 3 PRO is about what I would need in the next period. I will give up the two drones in my kit: Mini 2 and Air 2 in favor of a Mini 3 PRO.

    • According to DJI, you can opt for up to 512G memory cards UHS-I Speed Class 3 or above is required! You can opt for the following brands: Kingston, SanDisk, Lexar or Samsung

  7. the ‘Plus’ battery that provides 47min flight time has a capacity of 3850 mAh! Do you know if using this battery you are still under 250g?

  8. What’s the difference between the DJI Mini 3 and the Mini 3 Pro? Today is the official release day and we still don’t know…

  9. It comes in the box with a 30W fast charger, so you don’t need an eternity to charge the flight battery. The fly more combo pack becomes useless…

    • The MINI 3 comes with a completely new camera with HDR capabilities and 4k@60fps resolution. 1/3 inch CMOS image sensor and f1.7 lens

    • Plenty of people will pay so DJI will never lower the price unless it’s on sale. Everything is more expensive now including drones.
