Folks, the biggest leak of 2021 is here. Though we’ve yet to hear a peep about the new Mavic 3 from DJI, the owner’s manual and complete specifications of what has to be the most-anticipated drone of the year have surfaced online.
DJI tipster Jasper Ellens has just shared what appears to be pages out of the owner’s manual of the new Mavic 3 drone. Here’s a rundown…
DJI Mavic 3 would be equipped with an omnidirectional obstacle avoidance system, an infrared detection system, a fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal with a telephoto and wide-angle camera that would be able to capture 5.2K video and 20MP stills. Weighing 920 grams, the drone will have a maximum flight time of 46 minutes.
Mavic 3 camera and flight modes
Mavic 3’s primary camera is a Micro Four Thirds (M4/3) sensor, similar to that found in the DJI Zenmuse X5S professional gimbal camera designed for the Inspire 2 drone. The secondary camera features a ½-inch sensor and is expected to support 7x optical zoom lens, which would give the drone the capability of 28x hybrid zoom.
Further, Mavic 3 will feature several obstacle avoidance and intelligent flight modes. It will support Hyperlapse, allowing users to warp time to create especially stunning footage. QuickShots enable the drone to navigate a complicated aerial route for a professional-quality shot. ActiveTrack technology will allow Mavic 3 to automatically follow subjects while avoiding obstacles.
Incidentally, the drone has already been spotted in the wild too:

The new DJI Smart Controller V2 will be released alongside Mavic 3.

The built-in 5.5-inch screen supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.
The controller is equipped with a wide range of drone and gimbal controls, as well as customizable buttons. It has an expected 3-hour maximum battery life.
