Mavic Pro 3 – Sketches and Information, Bigger Battery, and More

Mavic Pro 3 – Sketches and Information, Bigger Battery, and More

DJI Mavic 3 sketches and information about the DJI Air 2S camera

New graphics for the supposed Mavic Pro 3 have found their way onto the Internet. There are also rumors about the camera of the DJI Air 2S, which will get a 1-inch sensor.

As with the first sketches for the alleged DJI Mavic 3, the new drawings have passed to the drone xl site from an unknown source.

It should idea that it is not clear whether the sketches are representations of the real Mavic 3. However, the sources of drone xl are usually always well informed.

The bigger battery on Mavic 3

You can primarily see the actual “body” structure with the battery inside on the current sketches. As already mentioned in the first message, you can now see in the following drawing how the battery inserts into the Mavic 3 from behind instead of being attached from above. This structure is similar to smaller drone models such as the Mavic Mini and the DJI Mini 2 (test).

It also sees that the battery seems to be significantly more extensive and longer than one is used to from previous Mavic models. That can conclude that the drone can trump it with a longer flight time or compel (better camera performance, higher speed, more sensors, etc.) – ideally, a combination of all things applies.

Another sketch shows the drone torso without a gimbal and cameras. A possible indication that the Mavic 3 may receive an exchangeable camera module.

According to the source, the DJI Mavic 3 is already in the first phase of production. But what exactly this means for the release date of the drone is still unclear. Further information should expect shortly. We will, of course, prepare these again for you in our blog.

DJI: the Mavic 3 Pro would be the brand’s first drone to film in 8K

While DJI has already unveiled its FPV, Air 2S, and Mini 2 drones, the Chinese manufacturer is preparing to present its next high-end drone, the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. The Drone DJ site, specializing in drone news, has indeed received some information on the brand’s next quad copter.

Some prototypes of the device were understudied at DJI. Among the features embedded on one of these prototypes, we would find an 8K compatible camera at 30 FPS. That is a record for a consumer drone since the DJI Air 2S offers a video definition of 5.8K. Only the EVO II 8K offers, as its name suggests, such a definition. In addition, if the Mavic 3 Pro is required to submit 8K at 30 FPS, we can imagine that it is also capable of filming in 4K and Full HD at much higher speeds.

A HIGHER PRICE THAN THAT OF THE MAVIC 2 PRO

However, these improvements on the video side would come at a heavy price. “The price will be much higher,” assures the source of Drone DJ. As a reminder, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro launch in November 2018 for 1499 euros. Note also that, over the past year, DJI drones have lost their Mavic name. The DJI Mavic Mini’s successor is the DJI Mini 2 when the DJI Air 2S succeeds the DJI Mavic Air 2. Therefore, there is no indication that the future “Pro” drone from DJI call Mavic Pro 3 could do everything. Be called DJI Pro 3.

What features will the Mavic 3 Pro have?

That’s what everyone is wondering. We have some information from our source and some speculation based on competition and industry knowledge. First, let’s go with what we’ve discussed with our reference.

We told the Mavic 3 Pro (or, perhaps, the Pro 3/3 Pro) will feature 8K video resolution. To us, this makes perfect sense, given that the original Mavic Pro, released in late September 2016, had a 4K resolution, and the AIR 2S has a 5.4K resolution.

One of the big competitors in this space is Autel’s EVO II Pro, featuring 6K resolution and a variable aperture at $1,795 for the base package. From a competitive standpoint, it wouldn’t make sense to match that. Knowing DJI, it would want to exceed it.

An evolution

So that was the start. In addition to the 4K video, the original Mavic Pro also worked with the original DJI Goggles, those white ones. They were a little clunky then, but the image quality was terrific, and that was also something of a breakthrough. People are trying them out at the NYC launch event, blown away.

But more than that, it was the beginning of a new way of thinking around form and function. The Mavic Pro was immensely more portable than the Phantom line, folding down to a compact size. It also had better flight time and a much smaller and innovative controller. And while that controller may look slightly dated now against the current crop (Mavic AIR 2, AIR 2S controllers), it was compact and got the job done.
