DJI Air 3 shows its underbelly in newly leaked photo

As the highly anticipated launch of the DJI Air 3 drone edges closer, more details are beginning to leak. A photo shared today by DealsDrone reveals intriguing aspects of the drone's design, specifically its underbelly.

On the left side, we see the first of the two downward vision system sensors, a key feature designed to assist in obstacle avoidance and precision landing procedures.


Nestled next to it is the Auxiliary Bottom Light or LED light. While it aids in landing the aircraft, it's more than just a guiding light – it can also trigger a release system to drop water bottles or even explosives, as we have seen in the - conflict.

Adjacent to the LED light is the Infrared Sensing System, which, together with the vision sensors aids during hovering, indoor flying, avoiding obstacles, automatic Return to Home, and precision landing.

Shifting towards the right side of the drone, we spot two rubber feet. Along with two more feet on the front arms, they provide a stable base for the drone to rest on.

Capping off the design is a cover nestled at the very end. It guards two essential components: the MicroSD card slot and USB-C port.

Furthermore, the drone has two air vent openings and rearward-facing obstacle avoidance sensors, though the latter are not visible in this photo.

The leak of product details, including pricing, photos, and FCC filings, has accelerated in the past few weeks. Given this flurry of information, we anticipate the DJI Air 3 will be hitting the market soon. Keep an eye out – exciting developments are on the horizon!
