DJI Mini 3 Pro Review : Tiny But Powerful

I think it's worth mentioning that the Mini drones DJI makes are focused primarily in keeping under the weight limit for commercial drones and doesn't require registration to fly. So the fact it's under the 250g limit, technically we can fly this with more ease knowing so, as compared to my experience with the Mavic 3 which was much bigger to begin with, while the Mini 3 Pro is smaller than the smart controller it comes with in this Fly-More combo.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, there is a new firmware update which allows video capture up to 4K60fps and high frame rates of 120fps@1080p. Among other features added such as added Focus Track, True Vertical Shooting, Hyperlapse, MasterShots, QuickShots, QuickTransfer and Panorama mode are also included, as well as software patches for its Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems or (APAS) for better flight responses and flight stability. So be sure to have all of that updated before flying. Especially if you consider how small this drone is.

Unfolded, it's still only 171x245mm in size and very much pocketable. Whether you choose to actually do that is entirely up to you as I found the propellers seem very dainty and might just break if it's snagged on something. In some ways, I wished it came with a strap design like it had on the Mavic 3 that helps tuck the propellers away.
