DJI Mini 3 Pro - Frequently Asked Questions

What improvements does the DJI Mini 3 have compared to the DJI Mini 2


In comparison to the DJI Mini 2 and Mavic Air 2, the DJI Mini 3 Pro offers a longer battery life, smarter features, video transmission, and a fully enhanced imaging and visual sensor technology.

Specifically, the DJI Mini 3 Pro inherits the 249 g light and compact body of the DJI Mini 2 and adds a 1/1.3-inch picture sensor with native HDR capability. It supports three-dimensional obstacle detection as well as APAS 4.0, which has just been improved (Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems). The battery life of the DJI Mini 3 Pro has been increased to 47 minutes.

It works with the DJI O3 FHD digital video transmission system, ensuring a steady live stream across distances of up to 12 kilometres. The DJI Mini 3 also supports intelligent features including FocusTrack, True Vertical Shooting, Timelapse, MasterShots, and High-Speed QuickTransfer are also supported by the DJI Mini 3 Pro.

Flying at 21.6 kph in windless conditions with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus. The DJI Mini 3 will weigh more than 249 g with the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus (available separately in some countries); please verify local laws and regulations before flying.

How do I operate the DJI Mini 3 Pro after unboxing?


Before using, charge and activate the battery by inserting it into the aircraft or charging hub and connecting it to the battery charger.

To turn on the aircraft, press and hold the power button once after the battery has been activated.

How do I activate the DJI Mini 3 Pro?


With the DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller: 

Connect your mobile device (connected to the internet) with the remote controller, and then connect to DJI Mini 3 Pro via the DJI Fly app. Follow instructions in the app to activate DJI Mini 3 Pro.

With DJI RC: 

When using DJI RC for the first time, connect to Wi-Fi or a smartphone hotspot to connect to the internet, and follow instructions in the app to activate DJI RC. After activating DJI RC, connect it with DJI Mini 3 Pro via the DJI Fly app. Follow the instructions in the app to activate the aircraft.

Is DJI Mini 3 Pro waterproof?


The DJI Mini 3 Pro isn’t waterproof.

Before using DJI Mini 3 Pro, what app do I need to install?


Only the DJI Fly app can be used with the DJI Mini 3 Pro.

The DJI Fly app is available for download through the DJI official website's Downloads page.

Please check the DJI website for compatibility.

If you're using a DJI RC as your remote controller, the DJI Fly app is already installed.

Why is the DJI Mini 3 Pro sporting a brand-new design?


Longer battery life at the same compact size: The new form and design allow the drone to carry larger propellers, improving propeller size leads to increased propulsion which brings increased battery life.

Increased sensing range and distance: The new design allows the drone to carry sensors with a larger field of view (FOV), which increases the sensing range and distance. As a result, the DJI Mini 3 Pro offers enhanced visual sensing capabilities, enhancing versatility and safety during flight and obstacle avoidance.

True vertical shooting and enlarged axes: The new design eliminates the need for computer cropping when taking portrait images. More filming perspectives and creative freedom are available with fewer gimbal limitations.

What’s the wind speed resistance of DJI Mini 3 Pro?


The DJI Mini 3 Pro's maximum wind resistance is 8.5-10m/s (Level 5). (19mph-22mph).

The amount of wind resistance is determined by the propulsion system. Due to the drone's lightweight design, moderate vibration is to be expected in severe winds. The drone's high-powered engine guarantees that it hovers steadily or safely returns home.

The DJI Mini 3 Pro adjusts the gimbal slightly automatically to ensure that the footage is always stable and unaffected by the wind.

Why are the backward vision sensors of DJI Mini 3 Pro placed on top of the airframe?

When flying backwards, the DJI Mini 3 Pro has a brand-new vision sensor arrangement that efficiently addresses the issue of the sensors being covered by the propellers. This increases the sensor range and performance, which increases user safety.

Is there a manual mode for capturing images and video on the DJI Mini 3 Pro?


Yes. In the DJI Fly app, you may manually adjust camera settings including shutter speed, ISO, and white balance.

On the DJI Mini 3 Pro, how do I enable HDR?

​​In Single Shot mode, the DJI Mini 3 Pro recognises the scene and automatically activates HDR for improved dynamic range.


When capturing video at 30 frames per second or below, the DJI Mini 3 Pro automatically enables HDR.

What is the optimal video resolution for the DJI Mini 3 Pro in terms of image quality?


When recording at 4K/30fps, the DJI Mini 3 Pro can provide high-quality footage that balances dynamic range and picture details.

Set the frame rate to 48/50/60fps if you desire smoother footage. These frame rates' dynamic range will be reduced in comparison.

How has DJI O3 Video Transmission been improved over OcuSync 2.0?


The DJI O3 Video Transmission System employs an entirely new approach as well as updated dual antennas to deliver FHD video transmission across distances of up to 12 kilometres (FCC compliant and with no obstructions).

In cities and other complicated contexts, further anti-interference features boost transmission stability even more.

How has the DJI Mini 3 Pro's High-Speed QuickTransfer been improved?


The High-Speed Mode on the DJI Mini 3 Pro QuickTransfer allows you to send photographs and movies at speeds of up to 30MB/s.

In addition, Mini 3 Pro determines the fastest transmission solution based on your current wireless environment.

What is the DJI Mini 3 Pro's maximum flight altitude?


For safety concerns, the maximum flight altitude is 500 metres. The maximum flight altitude in different nations and regions may differ due to local laws.

Always obey local rules and restrictions before flying.

How often should the propellers on a DJI Mini 3 Pro be replaced? How do I replace the propellers?


It is vital to inspect the propellers for cracks, wear, warp, corrosion, and loose screws before each flight.

The propellers should be replaced if any of these situations exist.

To change the propellers, follow the directions in the user handbook.

Change the propellers with the provided screwdriver. Please follow the on-screen instructions.

Replace the two blades and screws in the motor with the new propellers and screws.

Connect the motors with the marked propellers and the unmarked propellers with the unmarked motors.

Before each flight, double-check that the propellers and motors are properly installed.

Can I charge the DJI Mini 3 Pro with any USB-C charger?


Yes. We recommend using the DJI 30W USB-C Charger or other USB Power Delivery chargers to assure charging speed.

What is the DJI Mini 3 Pro Two-Way Charging Hub's purpose?


The DJI Mini 3 Pro Two-Way Charging Hub can charge up to three batteries in succession and supports USB PD fast-charging protocols.

You may also use it to charge your mobile device or remote controller via the USB-A connector as a battery storage device or a power bank (containing at least one battery with sufficient power).

What is the procedure for updating the firmware on a DJI Mini 3 Pro?


Connect the remote controller to the aeroplane.

The DJI Fly app will notify you that firmware updates are available (if new firmware is available). To update the firmware of the aircraft, remote controller, battery, and other modules, follow the instructions.

What factors could cause an update to fail?

When the aircraft or remote controller's battery level falls below 20%, the update will fail.

During an update, turn off the DJI Mini 3 Pro or the remote controller. If this occurs, restart the DJI Mini 3 Pro and the remote controller, then restart the upgrade.

During the firmware download, the internet was turned off.

If your smartphone interface is switched to other programmes during the firmware download, the upgrade may fail.

The aircraft will restart many times throughout the update and then shut down automatically after it is finished.

What accessories from the DJI Mini 2 can be used with the DJI Mini 3 Pro?


The DJI RC-N1 and accompanying accessories, as well as the DJI 18W USB Charger, are all compatible with the DJI Mini 3 Pro. Accessories for the DJI Mini 2 are not compatible with the DJI Mini 3 Pro.

Which remote controllers work with the DJI Mini 3 Pro?


DJI Mini 3 Pro currently supports two remote controllers - DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller and DJI RC.

The DJI Mini 3 Pro will be available to Pre-Order on the 10th of May and will be shipped to you on the 17th with DPD. If you would like a Mini 3 Pro, be quick as they are going to sell out quickly!
