DJI Mini 3 drone likely to arrive on November 15th

Ok – as I promised in my last article. There is more DJI news. And this time it flies. DJI will very likely release the DJI Mini 3 on November 15th.

Update on 10/4: DJI Mini 3 existence denied by DJI spokesperson

DJI Mini 3 drone likely to arrive on November 15th

DJI is not done this year. After they will have launched the DJI Mavic 3 (Oct. 20th), and the DJI Action 2 (Oct. 27th), DJI will very likely launch a new DJI Mini 3 on November 15, 2021.

The DJI Mini 3 will come only one year after we got the DJI Mini 2, which in turn showed up merely one year after the original DJI Mavic Mini that was launched in late 2019. Oh, and let’s not forget the DJI Mini SE that was launched this summer.

We’re not sure if DJI was already planning a third iteration of the DJI Mini or that this mini-drone was developed in response to the new Autel Nano Series.

Other than the Mini 3 weighing less than 250 grams, we have zero information on the specs as of yet. However, we expect the DJI Mini 3 to be competitive, so it might be cheaper than the Autel Nano Series. It might also have a 1/2-inch sensor and it might have 3-way obstacle avoidance.

What kind of specs would you like to see in the new DJI Mini 3? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Obstacle avoidance is good, but not necessary. I have Mini 2 and I never had a problem with missing sensors. I previously had Spark and I never needed to use front sensors to save my drone. Even downward sensors are not good when flying in mist.

  • Don’t really see the need for obstacle avoidance, but the larger camera sensor would be a very welcome bonus. I know people harp on a lot about the sensors, but I haven’t ever found myself wanting them all too much. I have them on my M2P, more of a hindrance than a help.

  • 4 days back I ordered new Dji Mini 2, now after reading this I am confused if this news is really true so that I can send back my Mini 2 because it has only 14 days of return condition. If this rumour is true then I can send back my Mini 2 right away and buy Mini 3.

  • Jasper Ellens says both the mini 3 isn’t coming in November AND the Mavic 3 is not coming October 20. Wonder who’s right here?

  • Ich fliege schon seit einigen Jahren mit, DJI und auch gelegentlich mit anderen Drohnen, durch die Lüfte. Von Mini, Mavic Pro bis inspire 2 bin ich total überzeugt und der nächste Schritt ist dann die DJI FPV Drohne, welche ich mir im Frühling zulegen werde. Mit vergleichbaren Drohnen bin ich nicht so zufrieden, vor allem fühle ich mich jeweils nicht sicher mit anderen Drohnen. Ich erwarte von der DJI mini 3 eine Hinderniserkennung da ich öfters mal im bergigen Gelände unterwegs bin und dann ein Hindernis auftaucht das man nicht direkt erkennen kann. Wenn möglich auch eine Hinderniserkennung für seitliche Flüge. Im Weiteren wäre ein optischer Zoom sehr toll wenn dies technisch lösbar ist. Ansonsten bin ich sehr zufrieden mit den DJI Drohnen und freue mich immer wieder Tiere in den Bergen damit auf Bildern einfangen zu können welche ansonsten so nicht erreichbar wären.
