DJI Mavic 3 is an excellent drone, but it’s an expensive affair for many. So the company has recently announced the Mavic 3 Classic for a more palatable price point. Yes, there are some changes to the drone, but it’s an excellent bargain. So let’s go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the DJI Mavic 3 Classic in Nepal.
DJI Mavic 3 Classic Overview:
The Mavic 3 Classic is nearly identical to the Mavic 3, but there is one significant difference. There is no telephoto lens here. Other than that, it is identical to the Mavic 3.That means you’ll be relying on a 4/3 CMOS 20MP camera that can capture video at 5.1K/50fps, 4K/60fps, and 1080p/60fps. You can also record slow-motion videos at 4K / 120fps and 1080p / 200fps.
Furthermore, the Mavic 3 Classic camera has a 24mm equivalent focal length lens and an adjustable aperture ranging from f/2.8 to f/11 for 12.8 stops of dynamic range. The drone also includes DJI’s automated Quickshots shooting mode as well as timelapse, hyper-lapse, and panorama shooting modes.
It also has a cruise control feature to set a constant flight speed. And the ActiveTrack 5.0 feature automatically recognizes and locks the subject for more stable footage.
Mavic 3 Classic also comes with a slew of safety features to keep the drone safe. The eight visual sensors equipped in the Mavic 3 Classic work in conjunction with APAS 5.0 obstacle avoidance system to autonomously plan routes around hazards.
Similarly, the Return To Home system can navigate the best path back to its starting point after scanning its immediate surroundings with a 200-meter range. In a densely populated area, the drone can also detect nearby planes and helicopters by sending ADS-B signals.
DJI’s GEO 2.0 geofencing is another excellent system for such situations, as it alerts drone pilots to potential flight hazards in the area. Also, it will inform you about local airspace restrictions.
Furthermore, Mavic 3 Classic uses the same O3+ transmission system that debuted with the Mavic 3. It will have a control range of up to 15 kilometers and a live feed transmission rate of 1080p/60 frames per second. In Sport mode, the drone has a maximum flight distance of 30km.
In terms of battery life, the Mavic 3 Classic has a 5000mAh battery that provides a maximum flight time of 46 minutes. It charges using a 65W adapter and takes about 96 minutes to fully charge.
