Introducing DJI Mini 3 Pro: The Most Advanced Mini Drone Ever

After months of speculation and anticipation from drone enthusiasts around the world, the DJI Mini 3 Pro has officially landed! With a brand new design, off-the-chart specs, Intelligent Flight Modes and so much more, let’s find out what the DJI Mini 3 is all about!

What’s New?

What’s new you ask? Well…pretty much everything. From the overall drone design to the camera to the way you experience flight, the Mini 3 Pro brings all-new levels of PRO to the DJI Mini series. Let’s dive right in!

Complete Redesign 

DJI went right back to the drawing board for the DJI Mini 3 Pro, engineering a whole new design from the ground up to pack in more show-stopping features whilst staying within the ultra-versatile sub-250 g weight. As such, the first thing you’ll notice about the Mini 3 pro is its redesigned body and form factor, featuring a new gimbal camera, bigger, more aerodynamic propellers and redesigned arms.

Don’t worry, this new design does keep a few key characteristics that users know and love including folding arms that are ideal for quick storage, the same familiar flight controls and the versatile sub-250 g weight that is ideal for transport and travel.

All-New Flight Experience 

The DJI Mini 3 Pro also introduces a brand new remote controller solution; the DJI RC.

The Mini 3 Pro ships with the classic DJI RC-N1 remote controller pilots have known and loved since its debut with the DJI Mavic Air 2 by default. However, for those looking for a more convenient flight experience, the new DJI RC is here to help!

Featuring a built-in 5.5” touchscreen display, the DJI RC eliminates the need to use your smartphone to control your drone, offering an integrated solution for piloting the Mini 3 Pro. The DJI RC also features redesigned high-precision control sticks that are more tactile and allow pilots to achieve fine-tune drone control.

You can learn more about the new DJI RC remote controller with our DJI RC Product Overview.

What’s the Camera Like?

If you were hoping for an upgraded camera with the new Mini 3 Pro, you won’t be disappointed! With a larger sensor, new shooting modes and higher-quality imagery than ever before, it feels like there’s nothing the Mini 3 Pro camera can’t do!

Bigger, Better Sensor 

The DJI Mini 3 Pro features a huge 1/1.3” CMOS sensor - the biggest EVER on a DJI Mini drone. Not only is that bigger than the 1/2.3” sensor found on 2020’s Mini 2, but that’s also even bigger than the 1/2" found on the fan-favourite DJI Mavic Air 2! This powerful new sensor is at the heart of everything the DJI Mini 3 Pro does as a content creation tool, helping users capture next-level creative content!

Built for Content Creation

4K/60fps Video

So what does this new sensor do? Capture insanely high-quality video, that’s what! The new Mini 3 Pro is capable of 4K video capture at up to 60fps! That’s never been possible before on a drone this small! Whether you’re capturing sweeping landscapes, gorgeous sunsets or simply capturing some memories on your holiday, the Mini 3 Pro does it all in stunning 4K!

Want to shoot in slow-motion? You’ve got it! The Mini 3 Pro supports 1080p/120fps recording for stunning 4X slow-motion video capture.

HDR Recording

Armed with a massive new camera sensor, the Mini 3 Pro can capture more data than ever before in each and every shot. This means that DJI has been able to implement HDR (high dynamic range) recording for the first time ever on DJI Mini. With HDR recording, you’ll capture more vivid colours and rich details in the shadows and highlights that are usually hidden away. Video has never looked this good from a drone this small.

48 MP Photos

If you thought the 12 MP photos produced on the DJI Mini 2 or Mini SE were pretty, you won’t believe how good photos taken on the Mini 3 Pro look. With its new and improved sensor, the Mini 3 Pro supports ultra-highresolution 48 MP images.

Oh, and did we mention that all your images can be captured in RAW? That’s right! With RAW photo support, your image files will be packed with data, perfect for those who love to tinker and create the perfect image. Can’t be bothered editing? That’s fine too, the DJI Mini 3 Pro is optimised to deliver share-ready photos that can be shared straight on social media.

Creative Features

Vertical Video… On a Drone?

Yes, you read that right. The Mini 3 Pro brings a brand new feature to DJI drones; vertical video recording. Say no more to cropping in and compromising your image quality, with a simple tap the Mini 3 Pro’s camera will rotate into vertical mode, allowing you to natively capture vertical video without losing image quality.

This innovative new feature is perfect for creating vertical video for social media including TikToks, Instagram Reels, YouTube Shorts and more!


MasterShots makes content creation easy, capturing an entire reel of jaw-dropping drone shots in a matter of minutes with just the touch of a button. Simply select your subject and MasterShots will do the rest, using its advanced intelligent algorithm to pilot the drone and capture key pans, tilts, transition shots and more!


Show the passage of time in impressive fashion with Hyperlapse, a DJI fan-favourite that pilots have been using for years. Just like a traditional timelapse, Hyperlapse condenses long periods of time into short clips but with a twist; with Hyperlapse you get the added bonus of dynamic drone movement during your clip!


Capture immersive images with intelligent Panorama on DJI Mini 3 Pro. Panorama intelligently stitches multiple precision-shot photos together to create large expansive images including ultrawides and sphere images. This feature is perfect for those looking to capture stunning landscapes!

What About the Drone Itself?

Alright, alright. So we know how good the camera is, but what about the drone itself?

Extended Flight Range

Not only does the DJI Mini 3 Pro improve its camera and external features, it's also received a significant upgrade under the hood. The Mini 3 Pro now features O3 (OcuSync 3.0) HD video transmission. First appearing on the ultra-popular DJI Air 2S, O3 is a stable, reliable video transmission technology that allows pilots to control their drone and fly from up to 12 KM away. That’s right… 12KM!

More Flight Time

As per usual, a new drone means more flight time. The DJI Mini 3 Pro now features a maximum flight time of 34 minutes, the most ever on a DJI Mini drone.

Ever wish you could have just a little more flight time? Lucky for you the DJI Mini 3 Pro now supports two different Intelligent Flight Batteries, a first for a DJI drone.

Fly with the standard DJI Mini 3 Pro Intelligent Flight Battery for 34 minutes of flight or upgrade to the new DJI Mini 3 Pro Intelligent Flight Battery Plus for up to a whopping 47 minutes of flight time!

Anything Else?

Wait, there can’t be more can there?! Yep! Buckle up, there’s even more to talk about!

Advanced Safety Features

Obstacle Avoidance Sensors

Due to design limitations that were necessary to keep total weight under 250g, previous generation Mavic Mini drones including the DJI Mini SE and DJI Mini 2 sacrificed obstacle sensors to keep their overall weight light. However, with the Mini 3 Pro’s new design, you can experience tri-directional obstacle avoidance without compromising on weight.

APAS 4.0

APAS (Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems) has arrived on DJI Mini 3 Pro, taking full advantage of the new obstacle avoidance sensors on the Mini 3 Pro. APAS 4.0 is a powerful algorithm designed to automatically detect and avoid obstacles, allowing you to focus less on navigating obstacles and more on capturing the perfect shot.


Not only do the new obstacle avoidance sensors of the Mini 3 Pro enable greater flight safety through APAS 4.0, they also enable fan-favourite creative features like FocusTrack, which now makes its debut on a DJI Mini drone.

ActiveTrack 4.0

That’s right! ActiveTrack is now available on DJI Mini 3 Pro. This fan favourite Follow-Me mode enables the Mini 3 Pro to intelligently detect and follow a subject whilst they move. It’s for solo operation and for when you want to capture high-octane activities like jet skiing, motorbike riding and more!

Point of Interest 3.0

Be the centre of attention with Point of Interest 3.0, designed to lock onto a subject and circle around from distance for a dynamic new shot.

Spotlight 2.0

A hybrid version of Follow-Me, Spotlight 2.0 enables pilots to lock onto a subject in their frame and allow the camera to naturally follow. However, unlike ActiveTrack, Spotlight will not automatically follow the subject, instead releasing flight controls to the pilot.
