DJI Drone Review
DJI is a Chinese technology company founded in 2006. The company is the world’s leader in the civilian and commercial drone industry, accounting for over 70% of the drone market.
Getting started in FPV flying is not easy. Choosing the right drone for the job is paramount. The DJI Avata Pro-View Combo with Goggles seems like a good fit. It is expensive, but many who have tried it say it is worth it. We shall look into the features to see whether it really is.
This drone is known for the high quality video feed that you are going to get through the goggles it comes with. Besides these goggles are more advanced, smaller and they give excellent picture quality.
Like every other FPV drone, this one too has its fair share of troubles. One of them is the high cost. This drone is expensive!
If you wear glasses, you will have trouble wearing the redesigned and smaller goggles this drone comes with are not too friendly to glasses wearers. Another thing you might have issues with is the hard to reach SD card placement.
Also, the batteries may not give you as much flight time as is advertised. DJI says you will get 18 minutes out of a full charge, but realistically, most people get about 15 minutes, sometimes shorter than that.
If you are looking for an excellent flying camera, this DJI Mini 3 Pro review is for you. This is the newest addition in the DJI mini drones stable.
Compared to the Mini 2 before it, the Mini 3 Pro is a great improvement. Where its predecessors lacked vital features such as obstacle avoidance, this one comes with it, making it one of the safest small drones to fly.
Even with all the features, this drone still weighs less than 250g so you will not need to register it with your civil aviation authority before you fly it.
This drone comes with so many good things. They include long distance flight, longer flight time from battery, incredible flight performance, and many automated flight modes.
The only downside you will find with this mini quadcopter is that it is the most expensive in the stable. Costing several hundreds of dollars, you will feel the dent on your wallet, but the experience will be totally worth it.
In the package, there is no USB cable for charging the battery. You will have to use your smartphone charging cable.

In their description for the DJI Mavic 3, they use this line – Imaging Above Everything. The inclusion of a Hasselblad 4/3 CMOS camera backs this claim.
Hasselblad is the leader in digital cameras and lenses. Thus, if aerial shooting is your thing, you should get the Mavic 3.
The Mavic 3 comes in three packages. First, there is the DJI Mavic 3, which we are reviewing here.
The second package is the Mavic 3 Fly More Combo, which is costlier by several hundreds of dollars. It comes with three batteries, a convertible bag, filters set and a charging hub.
The third one is the Cine Premium Combo, which comes with all the things that the Fly Combo comes with. It also has extras such as built-in storage of up to 1TB SSD and Apple ProRes 422 HQ recording.
This one is costly at $2800 more than the Mavic 3, but many people agree that the features and functions justify the price.
Back to our Mavic 3 review, what are some of the downsides that you should know? One of them is the cost! The features notwithstanding, the price is simply too steep for many drone enthusiasts.
The second downside is that while this drone has so many advanced features, most of them are locked, so they will be activated in future. This means you cannot use them right now.
