On Thursday, Shenzhen-based drone firm DJI announced plans to hold a new product launch event at 21:00 on May 10, under the slogan “A Twist in the Plot.”
According to previous leaks, the DJI Mini 3 Pro UAV is expected to be unveiled at this event, and a tipster with web username “Jasper Ellens” has also provided high-resolution images of the new product.
The pictures show the body and accessories of the DJI Mini 3 Pro. It is also reported that the machine’s maximum speed is 57 km/h. Ellens said that the DJI Mini 3 Pro stand-alone version is about 739 euros, and 4,799 yuan in China.
The major new functions and specifications of the DJI Mini 3 Pro are as follows: It weighs less than 249g, and after optimization, it features a larger propeller and stronger obstacle avoidance system, longer flight time and greater safety.
The Mini 3 Pro can fly for a maximum of 34 minutes, and 47 minutes with a smart flight battery. It features a 1/1.3 inch CMOS photosensitive element and an f/1.7 aperture lens, supporting direct output HDR images and straight shooting.
The product redesigns the shock-proof pan/tilt function and thus features a larger rotation range in low angle and vertical shooting. The Mini 3 Pro also has an active obstacle detection function, and forward, backward and downward dual vision sensors, thus having a larger detection range and higher security. The Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS 4.0) detects objects in the flight path in real time and is capable of avoiding any obstacles.
The Mini 3 Pro adopts the flagship DJI O3 image transmission system, providing 1080p/30fps real-time transmission. The transmission distance can reach up to 12 km. It also has FocusTrack function to track subjects, relying on three powerful tools – ActiveTrack 4.0, Spotlight 2.0 and Point of Interest 3.0.
