DJI Mavic 3 drone shows up in best-leaked photos to date

At this point, there is not much left to discover. This morning Jasper Ellens was able to secure these detailed photos of the DJI Mavic 3 drone. Check ’em out.

Update: DJI Mavic 3 is expected to be released on October 20, 2021.

The first thing that we’d like to point out is how closely these photos resemble the first sketches we released on the DJI Mavic 3 months ago.

This is the first time we get to take a good look at the overall design of the new DJI Mavic 3 drone. It is bulkier, or should I say more muscular, and more streamlined than the outgoing DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

Looking closely at these best-leaked photos we have seen to date of the DJI Mavic 3, we can see the new dual-camera setup with the Hasselblad logo prominently displayed in the top left corner.

The next thing that stands out to us are the forward-facing obstacle avoidance sensors on the front. Instead of the double sensor setup from the DJI Air 2S, the DJI Mavic 3 drone has only two wide-angle sensors to protect the drone from flying into obstacles.

On top of the drone, at the front, we see the large air intake and heatsink to help keep the internal components cool. Alongside the body of the drone, we see two additional air intakes on the top left and right sides of the drone. There are two more on the lower part of the drone on each side. At the top and back of the DJI Mavic 3 drone, we see yet another heatsink to help keep the drone cool.

The new DJI Mavic 3 promises photo and video quality unlike we have seen from any other DJI drone in the past. The image processing generates a lot of heat, just asked Canon and Sony, so it is pertinent to be able to keep all the internal components from overheating and it seems that DJI has figured out how to achieve that.

The propellers of the DJI Mavic 3 drone have orange tips but seem to lack the swept-back tips we have seen on previous Mavic drones. It makes us wonder if DJI has found another way to keep the propeller noise of the DJI Mavic 3 drone under control.

In the second photo, we can see that the charge port is open at the back of the unmanned aircraft, and it appears that the DJI Mavic 3 drone is actually being charged.

Looking closer at this photo, you can also see the upward-facing obstacle avoidance sensors. One of them is visible right underneath the propellers.

On the left front leg of the drone, you can see the word Mavic but the number three has been taped off. On the other side, the entire name has been taped off in an effort to the new DJI Mavic 3 under wraps.

Lastly, we have this photo below of the DJI Mavic 3 drone in the wild, sitting on a launchpad ready to take off.
