DJI Mavic 3 Specification


The DJI Mavic 3 is a Multirotors drone that was released by DJI in 4/11/2021.

A multirotor drone is a multiple propeller, vertical lift drone. These drones are more maneuverable due to their flight profile, being able to fly much closer to buildings and other obstacles. Multi-rotor drones like the DJI Mavic 3 also tend to be faster to deploy, and tend to be significantly cheaper to acquire and operate.

The battery capacity inside is 5000 mAh.

The DJI Mavic 3 sits on the slower side of drones, with a max speed sitting around 19 m/s. This might not be a bad thing though, so it really depends on why you're looking at buying the drone. If you're happy with a slightly slower drone then this one could be what you're after.

With a well above the average maximum range of 15 km, you're guaranteed a long-distance flight. Be assured you'll reach the distance you need, from the comfort of your mobile office, or even your couch, and know that your drone won't just disappear off into the distance.

A maximum flight time of 46 min offers the DJI Mavic 3 an extremely long usage time when compared with other drones. Whether you're looking at getting significant usage out of it each flight, or just looking for a drone that lasts longer between charges, this could be the drone for you.

Reviews of the DJI Mavic 3


Based on 7 reviews

DJI has put a premium on its flagship folding drone, but does the DJI Mavic 3 justify its price hike?
  • - 4.5
The DJI Mavic 3 is a spectacular piece of equipment, seemingly blasting past the limits of battery length, sensor size, safety and more. The lens is sharp across nearly the entire imaging area, and Hasselblad’s guiding hands have ensured imaging is excellent with or without post-processing. Why not 5-stars then? It could be, when next major firmware update comes in January we’ll finally know, but until then it’s an aerial photographer’s dream which does – in some respects – require a slight bet on DJI

DJI's first compact pro drone is on an entirely different level
  • - 5
The new DJI Mavic 3 is the first compact, foldable drone designed for professional use. It’s not cheap, mind, but then how could it be when it’s equipped with a four-thirds camera sensor, a separate tele zoom camera for scouting far-away subjects, obstacle avoidance in every direction and a flight time in excess of 40 minutes? Matchless.

An aerial powerhouse with few peers
  • - 4.5
The DJI Mavic 3 is a leap forward for folding drones, thanks to its excellent video quality and safety features. In many ways, it's everything drone fans could hope for, with an excellent Four Thirds camera, adjustable aperture, boosted battery life, and improved collision avoidance, all packed into a bundle that's lighter than the Mavic 2 Pro. Thanks to firmware updates, it's also now fully featured, but the high price tag remains a cost that non-professionals might find hard to justify.

This will get you the best-looking video footage from a consumer drone. It's also tons of fun to fly.
  • - 4
The base model is not exactly cheap at $2,200, but it's more approachable, and it still produces the best quality video footage I've seen from a consumer drone. The long flight time, impressive obstacle avoidance features, and (in theory) ActiveTrack 5 make the Mavic 3 stand well above anything else on the market.

If you can afford it and know what you will use it for, the Mavic 3 is an easy recommendation. Most people can probably ignore the Cine model — $5,000 is a lot of money, and if you add warranty on top of that, and if you live in a place where you pay sales taxes, that price can go up really quickly. The standard Mavic 3 is also not really for beginners — if you’re a hobbyist or prosumer mostly posting on your social feeds, you can probably get away with an Air 2, 2S, or even a Mini 2. But if this isn’t your first drone, and you’re ready to step up to a new level of image quality, want the best of the best in a relatively small package, and have enough computing power to edit these massive files — you really can’t go wrong with the Mavic 3.

The new Mavic 3 provides outstanding image quality and impressive features in a foldable and lightweight package.
  • - 4
Image quality is important for many drone pilots and the DJI Air 2S is the next best option after the Mavic 3 thanks to its 20MP 1-inch sensor. This model is smaller, lighter and less expensive than the Mavic 3 and can shoot Raw photos and videos in flat colour profiles. The only downside is that it doesn’t offer an adjustable aperture in the camera.

Cinematic power at a price

I’ll leave the final word to Samuel, the professional photographer and certified pilot who owns multiple DJI drones and assisted in this review. “I am definitely interested in buying it, because it has a sensor that’s larger and performs at a high level so it’s a big step up in terms of image quality. The extra battery life also makes planning easier, and the drone is extremely stable, even in wind, so you feel like you have a ‘tripod in the sky.’ It has some flaws for sure, but for me, those are outweighed by the image quality benefits.”
