DJI Mavic 3 is DJI’s latest flagship consumer drone. 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 encoding, offering higher image quality and greater flexibility during post-processing. In addition to the camera system, Mavic 3 also delivers a comprehensively upgraded flight experience. Flight time has been extended to 46 minutes, and the new O3+ extends video transmission range to a maximum distance of 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.
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.
The DJI Mavic 3 Series is only compatible with DJI Goggles 2, DJI Goggles Integra, and DJI RC Motion 2.
DJI Mavic 3 features a built-in gimbal lock to prevent the 3-axis gimbal and camera from shaking, adding an additional layer of safety during transportation and storage. Precautions for use:
1. The normal operating temperature of the gimbal lock is -10° to 40° C (14 to 104° F). If temperatures are outside of this range, it may fail to lock or unlock properly. You will be prompted by the DJI Fly app to use it within the temperature range. For emergency use in special situations, you can manually twist the three axes without damaging the gimbal itself, but this measure is not recommended.
2. The built-in gimbal lock may become unlocked due to external impact. In this case, power on the aircraft and then power off to lock again.
3. After the gimbal is locked, vibrations in each axis may occur.
Use the DJI 10Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable in the box to connect the aircraft to your computer via the USB-C port. Make sure the write speed of your storage device is greater than 700MB/s. Other data cables are not recommended since they may take longer to transfer files as high-speed transmission may not be supported.
The tele camera is available when using Photo mode (Single Shooting, AEB, Burst Shooting, Timed Shots), Video mode, and Explore mode. Explore mode only supports digital zoom up to 28x. Photo mode and video mode do not support digital zoom (only 7x is supported).
Remote Controller and Video Transmission
If you are using DJI RC, once you enable Vision Assist, the primary video transmission quality will be reduced to 720p, and the camera view displayed on the screen may appear slightly blurrier than before.
When using the DJI RC Pro or DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller, the maximum transmission range is 15 km.
Once video recording is set to 30fps or above at any resolution, the video transmission live feed framerate will automatically switch to 48/50/60fps depending on the mobile phone decoding capability and transmission bandwidth.
1. Once it has been linked with DJI Mavic 3 aircraft, the DJI RC-N1 remote controller will automatically perform targeted firmware optimization and updating. Just like the DJI RC Pro, the RC-N1 supports O3+ image 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 1080p/60fps transmission and O3+/4G hybrid transmission are fully supported by the two remote controllers.
When used with different aircraft hardware configurations, 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 expansion output.
4. Dual-spring controller 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 buttons for more convenient operation.
Flight Performance
The propeller structure adopts a new design, with the edges made of a softer material. This not only reduces noise during flight, but also causes less damage to people or 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 DJI Fly app will also send a prompt before takeoff.
The flight time was measured in a controlled test environment. Specific test conditions are as follows: No wind, at sea level, constant flight speed of 32.4 kph, APAS off, AirSense off, camera parameters set to 1080p/24fps, video mode off, and flying from 100% battery to 0% battery. Results may vary depending on environment, usage scenario, and firmware version.
Flight Safety and Obstacle Sensing
DJI Mavic 3 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 its predecessor, DJI Mavic 3 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 new Wi-Fi 6 protocol, data transmission is even faster, with download speeds reaching up to 80MB/s. In addition, compared to DJI Mini 2, Mavic 3 automatically selects the fastest transmission mode based on the wireless environment without switching to Wi-Fi mode manually, making it easier to use.
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 using the DJI 65W Portable Charger.
The 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.
