DJI Adds Mavic 3 Classic to Its Growing Roster


DJI is adding to its ever-expanding family of drones with the newly announced DJI Mavic 3 Classic. Perfect for those in need of a more pocket-friendly but feature-rich drone, the Mavic 3 Classic aims to be the more affordable little brother of the flagship DJI Mavic 3, which has been available for less than a year. With the addition of this new model, the Mavic 3 Series now comes in five versions: the Mavic 3 Classic, the Mavic 3, and the Mavic 3 Cine, as well as the Mavic 3E and 3T for enterprise users.

The Mavic 3 Classic is rather similar to the regular version, for which we've published an in-depth look. The primary difference is that, unlike the Mavic 3, the Classic only has a single 20MP 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera, sacrificing the tele lens of the latter. The Four Thirds sensor is significantly larger than those in DJI's smaller drones, such as the DJI Mini 3 Pro and DJI Air 2S. Additionally, the gimbal does not support gimbal lock.

The Mavic 3 Classic is compatible with Mavic 3 Series batteries, allowing for 40 minutes of hovering and 46 minutes of flight, ensuring more time to create and less time worrying about battery level. It’s also compatible with several other accessories, as well, such as the low-noise propellers or various DJI carrying bags and cases.

You'll be able to order the Mavic Classic 3 right here at B&H as a stand-alone purchase or bundled with different controllers starting November 2nd. The two combos include a remote controller and charger for a complete flight experience. One bundle contains a DJI RC-N1 remote, while the other comes with a DJI RC remote. You can choose a combo based on your needs.

The Classic makes photos and videos on Vertical? like the video above?

As of the date/time of this reply, I have not seen True Vertical Video recording listed as a feature of the DJI Mavic 3 Classic.  As such, I do not believe the drone will initially have this feature at launch.
