DJI Mavic 3 vs. Mavic 2 Pro spec sheet

For those considering a DJI Mavic Pro 2 vs. the newly announced Mavic 3, we’ve put together a comparison of the specs. The big differences are in flight time at 31 mins for Mavic 2 vs 46 for the Mavic 3, a whopping >50% improvement (!) multiple lenses on the Mavic 3 and of course ProRes on the Cine version (which weighs 4 grams more). Lots more little details in the numbers below…

Perhaps what’s most impressive on the Mavic 3 is that they made all of these improvements while actually reducing the weight. And if you take the heavier battery out of the Mavic 3 it weighs almost nothing.

Also keep in mind probably the biggest spec change, the price. DJI Mavic 3 is available for purchase today from store.dji.com and authorized retail partners in several configurations:

  • The Mavic 3 Standard version retails for $2199 USD and includes Mavic 3 drone × 1, Intelligent Flight Battery × 1, RC-N1 Remote Controller × 1, RC-N1 Cable × 3, Battery Charger × 1, Storage Cover × 1, Propellers (pair) × 3, and other essential items.
  • The DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo retails for $2999 USD and includes Mavic 3 drone × 1, Intelligent Flight Battery × 3, RC-N1 Remote Controller × 1, RC -N1 Cable × 3, Battery Charger × 1, Battery Charging Hub × 1, Storage Cover × 1, Propellers (pair) × 6, ND Filters Set (ND4\8\16\32), Convertible Carrying Bag × 1, and other essential items.
  • The DJI Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo retails for $4999 USD and includes a built-in 1TB SSD, and supports Apple ProRes 422 HQ video recording. The Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo also has more extensive contents, including: Mavic 3 Cine drone × 1, Intelligent Flight Battery × 3, DJI RC Pro × 1, Battery Charger × 1, Battery Charging Hub × 1, Storage Cover × 1, Propellers (pair) × 6, ND Filters Set (ND4\8\16\32), ND Filters Set (ND64\128\256\512), Convertible Carrying Bag, DJI 10Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable, and other essential items.
