Considering the DJI Mavic Air 2 comes with 34 minutes and Autel Evo 2 has 40 minutes of flight, I'm expecting at least 38 minutes, if not more from the new Mavic 3.
As you will see bellow, there's an actual patent pending for dji to step up their stabilization game with some optical stabilization besides the mechanical one.
When it comes to range, the Mavic 3 is definitely gonna have over 10km in FCC mode, so no worries about that.
I'll slowly add new leaks and patents as they appear, so this page is going to be updated frequently. Make sure to bookmark it as the ultimate resource on the mavic 3 in the future.
This optical stabilization system you see in the image has been patented by dji. It could be that they want to add another layer of stabilization to the 3 axis gimbal, which could make long exposure shots very stable and improve the overall stability of any shot.
However, it could also just be that they are working on a cheaper drone, maybe a continuation to the DJI Tello, a Tello 2, that can be a cheaper replacement for the DJI Spark.
“This official patent from DJI is called “Deformable Frame of Aerial Vehicle and Aerial Vehicle” and describes a new and simpler way to fold an inspire-like frame, but smaller and more compact.
This could be a complete overhaul of the Mavic Pro series that gets all the advantages of a 360 modular camera like the one on the Inspire.
Here's what DJI mentions in the patent files:
Most of these specs will be speculation at the moment of writing this article, but as time goes on, they might be leaked officially and you'll be the first to know if you bookmark this page.
OsitaLV is a frequent DJI leaker on twitter that has proved right many times in the past.
We have seen 2 photos of a potentially new camera, but it could just as well be the Mavic 2 with a new camera.
For sure it looks like there are some new camera vents and a different shape.

Hope you liked all that I had to say in this drone review and its specs so far. I take a lot of time to create these articles so it would be a great help if you'd share it with your friends 🙂
In conclusion, the DJI Mavic 3 is a very big possibility for this year, but we don't yet have any concrete info on it.
