DJI Mini 3 Drone
DJI Mini 3 Drone Only Combo
The DJI Mini 3 is a compact, ultra-lightweight camera drone.
It features an extended battery life, stunning 4K HDR video, and intelligent modes for fun and innovative content creation, such as True Vertical Shooting for dynamic portrait shots, ideal for social media.
The Mini 3 is a budget version of the popular DJI Mini 3 Pro - sharing some of the same features, but at a more cost-effective price. It has a longer flight time, but its camera is not as powerful, has limited obstacle sensing, and a reduced transmission distance.
Numerous packages are available for the DJI Mini 3. This option is drone-only, coming without a remote controller. It is ideal for operators who already own a DJI RC-N1 or DJI RC smart controller.
Alternative options are the DJI Mini 3 with RC-N1 controller; DJI Mini 3 with DJI RC smart controller; and Fly More Combos, which come with either controller and include additional accessories, such as extra batteries, more propellers, a shoulder bag, and Two-way Charging Hub. The Fly More Combos are more cost-effective than purchasing the extra accessories separately.
