Latest Leaks About DJI Mavic 3: Carapace and Battery Info
DJI is among today’s best brands in the drone market. And, their release of Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom in August 2018 strengthened their grounds in the competition. These units have been among the favorites in the drone industry.
However, it’s been three years since this release and pilots are starving in anticipation of what comes next. Well, that anticipation might be quelled for a bit with these latest ‘teasers’ about the next game-changer, DJI Mavic 3.
What We Have So Far
DJI Mavic 3 has since long been making the rounds in the drone community. However, without any official announcement from DJI, everything is still left in the dark for definition.
The latest developments involve Carapace Prototype. This shows a distinctive two-hole socket for front sensors. What’s different, however, is the more pronounced air inlet which is speculated to cool down the battery. It is also apparent that the carapace appears to be more robust compared to more slender predecessors.
Additionally, it is noticeable that the joint sockets for propeller arms are at the same trademark configuration. Thus, DJI pilots may expect the same folding mechanism as with the previous models. Although there have been leaks of patents for a downward propeller design, the prototype has yet to verify this rumor.
The latest prototype also shows an all-new battery design. The battery mounts at an end back slot, in contrast to the usual top back middle-ish configuration. What is more expected, though, is that it outlasts the current 30 minutes run time of Mavic 2 Pro.
Release Date and Pricing
There’s no official announcement from the DJI with regards to the Mavic 3 release date. The August to October windows is the usual hot spot of their releases. But, given the current state of a pandemic, a backlog for production may have ruined this traditional cycle. On the contrary, if DJI was not held back, then a Mavic 3 release might still slip through this year.
The price of Mavic 3 might be the vaguest at the moment. However, if it’ll outperform its Mavic 2 Pro predecessor, we can expect the same goes with its value. The Mavic 2 Pro costs around $1600 on its release. With that said, it’s safest to presume that the Mavic 3 will at least be around the $2000 margin.
These developments are highly promising. After three long years, DJI is ripe to release a new flagship. That’s it for now with the latest feed for Mavic 3. What do you think about it? Were you satisfied with the latest development?
