Dji will soon launch its latest mid-range drone, the Air 3, which uses a dual-camera system similar to the high-end Mavic 3 series, but does not work with Hasselblad, and now the official marketing images of the drone have been exposed by Winfuture.
The DJI Air 3’s dual camera system is mounted on the front head for better shooting and viewing angles. Unlike the Mavic 3 series, though, the Air 3 doesn’t have a Hasselblad logo on its camera, meaning DJI didn’t work with the company to develop the camera.
In addition to the dual camera system, the DJI Air 3 comes with a new battery with a capacity of 4,241mah or 62.6Wh. The Air 3 is expected to have a significant increase in flight time compared to the Air 2 or Air 2S, since the new battery is about 30% larger than the old one.
It is reported that the DJI Air 3 will also have two new controllers and will only be sold with the controller, there will not be a separate drone package. However, DJI also plans to launch different bundles, including two so-called Fly-More-Combos, with extra batteries and other accessories. One of these packages included the new DJI RC2 controller and the other included the equally new RC-N2 model.
Externally, the RC2 (with touch screen) and RC-N2 (without touch screen, with smartphone stand) are very similar to the older controllers that have been on the market before, but the RC2 version with touch screen now has an external antenna.
Technical data on the drone itself and the new controller is still unknown, but Amazon UK has accidentally leaked the prices of at least three SKUs that are expected to launch. Among them, the DJI Air 3 with the RC-N2 controller costs £962. The Fly More Combo set with the old DJI RC-2 controller costs £1,199 (currently about £11,115), The Fly More Combo kit with the new RC-N2 controller costs £1,379.
