As usual, one of the best new reviews of the Mini 3 Pro. Just a couple of questions. Does the spherical panorama shot take advantage of the much larger vertical range of the gimbal? And is it possible to output video to an external HDMI monitor via the second USBc port on the new Smart Controller. Looking forward to more of your great videos on the Mini 3

Related to that what is the number of pixels or size of the dJI generated sherical panorama. The mini 2 really gives a very low resolution DJI generated panorama.

Thank you, Russ for the great and informative video. I live in ND too and have had very few opportunities to take my Mini 2 out because of the weather conditions lately. That is just a testament to how amazing the Mini 3 is, to be able to keep the image so steady in the wind conditions during our blizzards. Thank you again, and I am looking forward to more of your reviews.

I would absolutely love a quickshot mode like rotate around an object where it will rotate a little longer. It would be nice to be able to edit rotations around objects into endless loops without it speeding up and slowing down at the loop point. In other words; it would be nice if you could create a loop point where the speed is constant.

Thanks so much for this presentation. Awesome work, as always. I’ve been flying and photographing/videoing ever since my Phantom 4K Pro which is at least 5 years past now. My own Mini Pro 3 arrived via UPS this very morning. I’m just stunned at how small it is, and how light. My wife (who also flies) and I decided to order this little drone as soon as it was announced because the specs looked so impressive. DJI has always pretty much told the truth about their products, so we took a chance on it before seeing anyones reviews. Looks like we made the right choice. And we’re getting some help right out of the gate from this video. Thanks again, Russ. You always come through with “the good stuff” in your videos.

This new Mini 3 Pro is one that I may well consider, especially as it packs so much into it, at a good price point. It looks very stable too. I still have the original Mavic Pro, and wanted to upgrade to the Mavic 3, but to me it the Mavic 3 was released with many incomplete features which I did not appreciate.

I still have and fly my og mavic mini. The moni vs the mini 2 wasnt really all that spectacular to me. However, this mini 3 pro looks incredibly enticing. One of my biggest flaws or complaints about flying any drone was needing to use a phone to tether it to the drone remote. I don't know if angels heard me or not but it sure feels weird finally getting something Ive been hoping for for quite a while. Just being able to break this out and go and get up in the air quickly, thats really cool vs having to break out the box, spend a few minutes taking off my phones protective case so it would fit the drone remote, hooking up the cable, etc. I also want to add that I lost a phone (broken charge port) or 2 because of how many flights Ive had with drones and needing to keep using its charge port to connect. I dont like how expensive the mini pro 3 is atm, but all things considered, it really does seem like a premium kit.

Same hassle for me hooking up my phone to the controller of my Mavic Air. Last year my phone's charging port also needed replacement but can't pin-point the cause, although the fumbling of the drone cable to my phone's charging port seems a bit brutal. The new MA 2S has been very appealing but having watched a few vids on this cutie makes sooo much sense, especially with the dedicated controller. Setting up my drone each time for flying is such a hassle each time - essentially committing my phone 100% until the flight is over. Now, to find a buyer for my MA with all its extras..... 🙂

Thank you for the great comprehensive review. One question I still have (might of have missed) is the transmission (quality and or range) for the new remote (os3) noticeably better than the standard remote when paired to the mini 3? You talked about noticing better transmission at the bridge with the new remote, but when you pair the older mini 2 remote was it worse? In other words was the better transmission due to the new mini 3 antenna placement or due to it pairing with the new remote?

Thank you for your video, very comprehensive. I'm considering this drone for the fact that it's sub 250 grams and yet still has some amazing qualities (considering its size, of course). That said, I'm a bit confused about the geozone. I'm in Canada, and the bottom line here is that a micro drone is "allowed" to fly pretty much anywhere, but for emergencies (forest fire zones etc.), and still not allowed to fly in close proximity to a military base. Barring those few restrictions, you "can" (whether you "should" or not is really THE question!) legally fly almost anywhere. So, why does DJI enforce geozones on a drone that really doesn't have any issues with legal flight? I realize you aren't DJI and may not know the answer, but I'd appreciate your thoughts on this regardless. It makes no sense to me. It defeats the purpose (in my mind) of having a sub 250 gr drone.

First of all- thorough, yet easily digestible video. Thank you. But honestly, I most appreciated when you came to the point of the range test and brought up how conducting that would obviously necessitate breaking the LOS regulation. I am by nature, kind of a rule breaker, a yahoo, a “freedom” seeker. But the big takeaway of my actual classroom Part 107 test prep course (the instructor also holds a private pilot license with instrument and multi engine rating) is how to fully appreciate and actualize the proper pilot mindset. Responsibility, humility, excellence. Dropping the ego and following the regulations even though you probably won’t get caught seems to be the biggest hurdle to the recent convergence of healthy drone regulation and embedded electronic nanny tech. So, I respect your attitude and therefore subbed.

I personally LOVED going vertical on my Mavic Pro for my photos. It's great to see it back and this may motivate me to get rid of my Mavic 2 Pro amongst other things.

Great overview and a very attractive proposition for my application - as a Mavic Air (1) owner preferring a more compact drone for offroad biking, MTB riding and hiking. As compact as the smartphone controller is, the hassle of connecting it each time to fly is a hassle. The dedicated controller will make things sooo much easier even if a bit bigger. Now, to find a buyer for my MA with heaps of extras....😜

My first thought regarding set filming moves was that it would be great if the programmable buttons could record several moves - like a macro in excel. So press record, do the moves, then repress the button to store a fixed flying combination, Alternatively it would be great if the software was opensource so developers could add functionality. It looks like a great drone and I have pre-ordered. Thanks for the video

Excellent presentation Thank You Russ! One of the thing DJI could improve and make their interface even more convenient and fun to work with would be to enhance their programming features for waypoints. Adding 3 key elements: GPS coordinates, point recording while flying and allowing to setup fly altitude lower than 2m. Ideally, this could be done on the remote and on a computer through the personal DJI account. I am struggling with few requests asking to fly with different constraints and such feature would help tremendously if available.

If/when DJI releases an SDK there is the possibility for third party apps to do this: "Litchi" is one that has some of what you're asking for on other DJI platforms, but the dev is waiting for DJI to release an SDK "Litchi is compatible with: Mini 2, Mini SE, Air 2S(*), Mavic Mini 1, Mavic Air 2, Mavic 2 (Zoom/Pro), Mavic (Air/Pro), Phantom 4 (Standard/Advanced/Pro/ProV2), Phantom 3 (Standard/4K/Advanced/Professional), Inspire 1 (X3/Z3/Pro/RAW), Inspire 2 and Spark." "Litchi is *NOT* compatible with Mini 3 Pro and Mavic 3 as DJI has not released a developer SDK for these drone models yet"

The 3DR Solo drone had a quick shot called Zipline. If I remember correctly, you could set the zip line vertical, horizontal, all varying degrees of angles, and vary the speed at which the drone ran along the line, and it would keep the subject in frame, even if it was moving. Would like to see DJI add something like that.

Great job! Thanks for this super informative video! I'd like to know how fast it is at locking onto GPS and setting the home point, especially given that it has the GPS + Galileo + BeiDou system. That's the same GPS system as the Mavic 3 that has been plagued with GPS "lock-on" latency issues for some time now (still not totally resolved IMHO since the more recent firmware attempt to fix it). Can you share your experience with it? Unless I missed it, I didn't note any mention of it in the video.

I think the longer arms are, from what I’ve seen in several videos, to accommodate the longer props? Great info on the controller comparison. I don’t recall who I saw complaining about this new RC compared to the RC PRO but when considering the RC PRO itself is a $300 more than the Mini 3 Pro and RC remote combo I don’t understand the complaints.

The two other less expensive offerings "DJI Mini 3 Pro" for $759 and the "DJI Mini 3 Pro (No RC)" for $669 won't start shipping until August 2022. The lower banner on the DJI page shows this "DJI Mini 3 Pro (No RC) will be available starting in August of 2022." The only way to get a DJI Mini 3 Pro before the late part of summer in North America is to buy one with the DJI RC controller. A bit disappointing.

First off, killer job on the review! My first thought on the new design was how vulnerable the camera looked. I crashed my mini and broke the gimble twice. Once i upgraded to the mini 2, i purchased the lens hood for a little more protection. So the question i have is about how the gimble is mounted. Is it rigidly mounted or similar to the mini 2 with the "rubber bands" for shock absorption? Can you foresee any aftermarket protection for the gimble? Thanks for all the effort and hard work!

The Evo is also 249g and has had 3 way obstacle avoidance WAY before they even thought about producing the Mini 3. Working within the DOD gives me insight of whats to become of DJI. You ever wonder why DJI is pushing new drones literally every year? With new import sanctions DJI is going bye bye, At least here in the US.

Great Review as usual. Very informative and you appeared to cover all the bases.. except one. Yours is the best post that I have seen on the Mini 3 Pro, so far. I watched two "pre-launch" reviews on it, but none of them addressed the question that I am sure many of us have; Will the Mini 3 Pro work with the RC Pro controller? Maybe this question has been asked and answered - and I missed it.. LoL. But which package I purchase will depend on the answer. I won't need the new RC controller if my current RC Pro controller works with it as well. In this review, you compared the three controllers, but didn't mention compatibility. So, PLEASE, tell me that it is compatible, and I can save a little loot. Thanks so much, Keep up the excellent work!

And it now records in 10 bit with new firmware. This is the deal-maker for me. Thanks for an excellent review. new sub.

Thank you for the video! Questions - Does it offer a variable aperture and does it have a Cine or Tripod mode for slower flight?

Great review. I wanted to ask does it still have object avoidance, when doing quick shots or master shots? I know that Air 2S turns off the object avoidance and in a quick shot, it goes into full kamikaze mode.

Thank you for this unique comprehensive video. I have already ordered the Mini 3 PRO (to replace my AIR 2S that I sold, however, I did fantastic shots with it) but I am really impatient to be able to order the battery plus option. Apparently, this option is NOT available in Europe (at least in France). One feature I am waiting from DJI for years is the ability to fly and shoot videos through WAYPOINTS, similar to what you can do in Hyperlapse. I would like to record the same flight at different time of the day (because of light changes) or different time of the year from winter to summer. Litchi does it, why not DJI? Unfortunately, Litchi cannot be loaded on the new RC coming with the mini 3 (YET). Do you have any suggestion or inside contact at Litchi (or at DJI) to know if this will be available in the future? Thanks again for your very detailed and sharp videos.👍

Thanks for a great video Russ. It would be great to see a video comparing the Mini 3 Pro and the Air 2s, including their performance in windy conditions. Cheers!

I'll disagree with needing lateral sensors instead of rear sensors. Both times I've crashed my Mavic Pro is when I was flying backward. I'm looking forward to this drone being available in a few months.

Thanks for all the things you share as always - is there any drone having four corners sensors? I mean up, down, sides, front, and back. Sometimes when I fly sideway I feel uncomfortable. Instead of down and up, it's better to have side sensors.

Dude, seriously. This was a great video. Thank you. As a real estate pro I use drones to market properties and they are an intregal part of my business. Plus I'm a nerd and love flying drones! Just ordered one of these. I appreciate the video.

Thank you so much for detailed review , it helped a lot 👍🏼 A straight question I am a photographer who has $1300-1500 dollars and wants to buy his first drone with best and latest features possible. Which one should I go with? Mini 3 pro or Air 2s? Thanks

My 2 cents... Air 2S. It is absolutely incredible. If you absolutely need adjustable aperture, then Mavic 3, but that is twice the price you quoted.

Drive by mode, drone approaches at high speed, drifts by the target sideways, then recedes by reversing. Always keeping the target in frame.

Great video. Do you think adding anti collision light and remote id module will kick this over the 250 grams?

thank you very much for the update! really detailed description for the drone. the previous drone I owned mavic air (crushed...) had turtle speed video sharing to phones, is it a functional way to use the this RC pack and efficiently transfer videos and photos to your phones?

It's interesting that you seemed to have a stronger signal in that location, most of the other testers seem to be having problems with a weaker signal than they are used to

Thanks for the info, very useful. Disagree that 1/1.3" sensor is nearly a 1". The former is 69mm^2 where the 1" is 116mm^2, nearly double the area. That does make a difference.

Really comprehensive review that convinced me to test the Mini 3 Pro. I wonder if the DJI New RC could be used with the DJI FPV Goggles to stream the FPV video feed? Does anyone know by any chance?

Bought my first drone on the release of the Mini 3 Pro… found your Channel in the run up to arrival of the drone. Thanks so much for your considered and well presented content. You and a few other channels are a fantastic resource for new pilots and I have really enjoyed watching +1 subs, +1 Notifications. Thanks again - avid new subscriber from the UK - looking forward to those notification bells…

I have 2 big issues with my DJI air (1): When I go to a new location, it took me a long time to calibrate the drone and many times it was failed and I had to start all over. Second problem was when I started a quick shots like circle, it always went like a magnet into a tree, even if there wasn't a tree very nearby (As it didn't have upward or Lateral sensors) Are these issues fixed or better with this drone? Then I already go buy it without any doubt :D Please let me know

Excellent presentation! You have really grown with your channel! Very smooth and quick! One thing I've NEVER heard before but always thought. Why would you prioritize front sensors over side sensors. . . We've already got a HUGE sensor right on the front we're constantly watch. . . . were as, I have a tough time always knowing what's off to the side. . . if they were slightly angled to view backwards so there was absolutely no blind spots aft or to the side, that would be great! Totally agree with your thoughts on that. I think advanced3-4 input orbit shots are some of the best, I do them often and just hate interrupting a smooth great shot to literally turn the drone to the side to look and make sure it's clear of obstacles. You could argue LOS would do it but sadly even if fairly close eye sight depth perception really can't tell you FOR SURE, especially with a small drone like this. . . like when a sparse tree is between you and your subject. . . for a cool reveal shot. . . Thanks Buddy!
