FAQ

Product
The DJI Mavic 3 Series includes DJI's latest flagship consumer drones. Compared with Mavic 2, Mavic 3 has substantially upgraded camera performance, integrating a 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera and a lightweight 24mm equivalent tele camera. Mavic 3 is capable of capturing 5.1K/50fps and 4K/120fps videos, and Mavic 3 Cine even supports Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422, and Apple ProRes 422 LT codecs, offering higher image quality and greater flexibility during post-editing. In addition to the camera system, the Mavic 3 Series also delivers a comprehensively upgraded flight experience. The flight time has been extended to 46 minutes, and O3+ extends video transmission distance up to 15 km.* Obstacle sensing has been developed into a truly omnidirectional system, with a more powerful APAS 5.0 and Advanced RTH to give users greater peace of mind during flight.

* Unobstructed, free of interference, and when FCC-compliant. Maximum flight range specification is a proxy for radio link strength and resilience. Always follow local rules and regulations and fly your drone within your visual line of sight unless otherwise permitted.
The DJI Fly app.
The DJI Mavic 3 Series comes in three versions: Mavic 3 Classic, Mavic 3, and Mavic 3 Cine.

Mavic 3 Classic has one 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera, and the gimbal does not support gimbal lock. Mavic 3 has two cameras: in addition to a Hasselblad camera, it has a 162mm tele camera and supports gimbal lock. On top of these Mavic 3 functions, Mavic 3 Cine supports Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422, and Apple ProRes 422 LT codecs and comes with a built-in 1TB SSD for high-speed data storage.
No.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic (Drone Only) does not include a remote controller or charger. You can use an already-owned DJI RC-N1, DJI RC, or DJI RC Pro to control the drone. The other two combos include a remote controller and charger. They are DJI Mavic 3 Classic, which contains a DJI RC-N1 remote controller, and DJI Mavic 3 Classic (DJI RC), which contains a DJI RC remote controller. You can choose a combo based on your needs.
Remote Controller and Video Transmission
DJI RC Pro, DJI RC, and DJI RC-N1.
When using the DJI RC Pro, DJI RC, or DJI RC-N1 remote controllers, the maximum transmission range is 15 km.*

* Unobstructed, free of interference, and when FCC-compliant. Maximum flight range specification is a proxy for radio link strength and resilience. Always follow local rules and regulations and fly your drone within your visual line of sight unless otherwise permitted.
Once video recording is set to 30fps or above at any resolution, the frame rate of the live feed will automatically switch to 48/50/60fps depending on the mobile phone decoding capability and transmission bandwidth.
No.
Yes.
1. Once it has been linked with a DJI Mavic 3 Series aircraft, the DJI RC-N1 remote controller will automatically perform the corresponding firmware update. Just like DJI RC Pro, the RC-N1 supports O3+ video transmission.
2. In an unobstructed environment free of interference, both controllers can support a maximum transmission range of 15 km with FCC compliance.*
3. Both remote controllers support 1080p/60fps live feeds.
When used with different aircraft, both remote controllers will automatically select the corresponding firmware version for updating and support the following transmission technologies enabled by the hardware performance of the linked aircraft models:
a. DJI Mini 2 / DJI Mavic Air 2: O2
b. DJI Air 2S: O3
c. DJI Mavic 3: O3+

Compared with DJI RC-N1, the DJI RC Pro features:
1. Easy setup and quick start, which means the remote controller is instantly linked to the aircraft after powering on and there is no need to worry about interference from calls or text messages during flight.
2. The built-in high-bright screen ensures constant high-bright display all day, without the risk of lowered screen brightness caused by overheating.
3. DJI RC Pro is also integrated with a powerful processing platform for a more stable and smoother system operation. It also has excellent sound and image quality and supports video output expansion.
4. Dual-spring control sticks for a smoother and more precise control experience.
5. Compared with the 1T2R antenna configuration of DJI RC-N1, DJI RC Pro uses a 2T4R configuration that is more resistant to interference and delivers more stable transmission performance in urban areas with signal interference.
6. A dial has been added to DJI RC Pro exclusively for camera parameter adjustments, supporting more customizable button functions for more convenient operation.
Flight Performance
The propeller structure adopts a new design, with the edges made of a softer material. It not only reduces noise during flight, but also causes less damage to people or other objects in the event of an accident.
Replace the propellers in a timely manner to ensure safety, especially if any propeller is damaged or misshaped.
Attach the propellers with gray markings on the motors with the same markings, and attach the other two without gray markings on the corresponding motors.
The flight time was measured in a controlled test environment. Specific test conditions are as follows: fly at a constant speed of 32.4km/h in a windless environment at sea level, with APAS off, AirSense off, camera parameters set to 1080p/24fps, video mode off, and from 100% battery level until 0%. Results may vary depending on environment, actual use, and firmware version.
Flight Safety and Obstacle Sensing
The Mavic 3 Series can detect obstacles in all directions with extreme precision. Multiple sensing cameras with a wider range of detection help Mavic 3 respond to obstacles earlier. In a well-lit environment, Mavic 3 can avoid obstacles faster and more smoothly, capturing stable footage safely even when flying laterally or backward.
ActiveTrack 5.0 tracks subjects in eight directions, bringing more creative possibilities. Embedded with the newest subject recognition technology, ActiveTrack 5.0 uses multiple vision sensors simultaneously to recognize a subject, differentiate it from other objects, and lock the subject in frame. It allows users to adjust tracking angles smoothly for more natural results. Thanks to new environment and subject-sensing algorithms, Mavic 3 responds earlier to subject movements and environment information, and plans a more optimum tracking route in advance to record smooth and stable footage.
Compared to the 20 meters of the Mavic 2 Series, the Mavic 3 Series has a maximum forward-sensing distance of 200 meters during RTH. During flight, Mavic 3 will use advanced environmental sensing technology to determine the safest, most energy-efficient flight route to return the drone to its home point.
In Nifty mode, the obstacle detection sensitivity is lowered. Bypass maneuvers will be less noticeable, which reduces the impact of obstacle avoidance movements on your footage.
Intelligent Features
With the Wi-Fi 6 protocol, data transmission is even faster, with download speeds reaching up to 80MB/s. In addition, compared to DJI Mini 2, the Mavic 3 automatically selects the fastest transmission mode based on the current wireless environment without switching to Wi-Fi mode manually, making it easier to use.
Accessories
The DJI 65W Portable Charger comes with a connected 65W USB-C charging cable to charge Mavic 3's intelligent flight battery (it is recommended to use this charging cable for charging the Mavic 3 battery). At the same time, you can connect the USB-A port on the DJI 65W Portable Charger with the remote controller using the Type-C Cable (data cable) in the box of Mavic 3 to charge the remote controller.
Approximately 96 minutes when charging with the connected 65W USB-C charging cable of the DJI 65W Portable Charger.
The well-designed DJI Convertible Carrying Bag can be converted between a shoulder bag and backpack to suit users' portability needs.
1. The shoulder bag configuration provides enough space for Mavic 3 and its accessories, offering a more convenient shape that makes items easily accessible.
2. The backpack configuration provides enough space for Mavic 3 and its accessories, along with a 16-inch laptop and other small items for daily use, making it perfect for short trips.
Yes. However, to ensure charging efficiency, we still recommend using the DJI 65W Portable Charger. Other chargers at 60W or above supporting PPS/PD protocol are also recommended.
