DJI Air 3 — The Best Features — FLIGHT AND CRASH!

Thanks for tuning in! Today, we're diving into the cool features of the DJI Air 3. So, are we testing or playing? Regardless, it's bound to be a blast. I'll be handling the drone, while my son Quentin takes charge of the camera. Say hi, Quentin!

“Why Quentin, you ask? Well, child labor laws don't apply when it's family,” I joked. The real reason: he's a hard worker with a keen interest in aviation and drones. Plus, he's certified. So, I discreetly borrowed the Air 3 from work for the weekend – exciting times!

The 's standout feature? A three-times zoom lens. It's equivalent to a 70-millimeter lens, much like the one on the Pro. The image compression is captivating, and the detail is mesmerizing. Recently, I've been handling the Pro, but the DJI Air 3 boasts the same sensor, guaranteeing similar quality shots.

But not everything was smooth. I faced some mishaps with the Air 3 over the weekend, earning me a chat with Greg about the importance of pre-flight planning. Still, the results were stunning. With the Air 3's zoom, even distant shots retained impeccable detail, closely resembling shots from the Mini 3 Pro.

“Ever heard of parallax?” I asked Quentin, who was showing off some epic shots. The results were superhero-worthy.

Though Quentin lacks a certification, he's still knowledgeable, having passed his test. Under the Part 107 regulations, Quentin can operate a drone under my supervision.

The Air 3 boasts an impressive tracking feature. With the subject highlighted, the drone skillfully keeps them center-framed. There's even an active track feature where the drone follows the subject. Paired with the Air 3's obstacle avoidance feature, it's quite the game-changer.

Waypoints are another handy tool. They allow the drone to follow a set path automatically. This, combined with the Air 3's low-light capabilities, offers some fantastic nighttime visuals.

But, mishaps happen. One landing saw the drone's propeller chew through some grass, which had me reevaluating safety measures. “Would you use these propellers again?” I asked Quentin. The answer was a resounding no.
