Additionally, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic was listed in FCC filings, providing further proof that the new DJI camera drone is definitely on its way.
Then, we learned from a seasoned, trustworthy source that the new DJI drone's release is indeed just weeks away.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic release date October 27th
The significantly less expensive DJI Mavic 3 Classic is scheduled to go on sale on October 27th, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
The DJI Mavic 3 Classic is a more scaled-back version of the DJI Mavic 3. In contrast to the M3, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic will only have one camera. The specifications are likely to be the same as those of the Mavic 3's main camera.
To appeal to a broader market, DJI has made less expensive versions of existing camera drones in recent years. We saw this with the DJI Mini SE. And now we're seeing it with the Mavic 3 Classic.
DJI's flagship camera drone for serious drone enthusiasts and professionals is the DJI Mavic 3. It is an expensive drone at nearly $2,000, so it makes a lot of sense to introduce a slightly stripped-down, more affordable version.
While DJI waited nearly a year to release the less expensive DJI Mavic 3 Classic, presumably to maximize profits on the sale of the M3 and M3 Cine, the drone maker is now set to release the DJI Mavic 3 Classic on October 27th.
While we are less enthusiastic about DJI's emphasis on profits, we are excited to see a lower-cost version of the M3 hit the market because it will enable more people to get into the drone hobby and possibly even make a career out of it.
Despite the lack of a second camera with a telelens, the DJI Mavic 3 Classic will provide you with everything you need in a camera drone to get started and, if desired, turn your hobby into a business or career. Mark your calendars for October 27th!
