DJI Mini 3 Pro: Hands-on and unboxing videos emerge of Mini 2 successor with its RC remote controller
Barely a day has passed since DJI announced its next hardware event, accurately predicted by several leakers. However, @JasperEllens has received two hands-on videos providing a detailed look at the Mini 3 Pro and its RC remote controller. Initially, the leaker shared an unboxing video, embedded below. As far as we can tell, the retail box shown matches the first Mini 3 Pro leak, also published by @JasperEllens. Incidentally, the same video highlights the Mini 3 Pro's RC remote controller, which has C1 and C2 buttons on its rear.
Subsequently, @JasperEllens has leaked a short video in which the Mini 3 Pro and RC remote controller are powered on. Unmistakably DJI's upcoming products, rather than existing ones, it seems that both are box fresh and without all their packaging removed. While the RC remote controller has leaked before, the videos showcase its dual USB Type-C ports, memory card slot and its large display. Presumably, the display will match the one DJI includes in the RC Pro, which has a 5.5-inch panel. If that is the case, the Mini 3 Pro's RC controller should peak at 1,000 nits while outputting at 1080p.
For reference, the Mini 3 Pro is rumoured to cost €739 in Eurozone, but only with a battery. Alternatively, DJI is expected to offer the drone with the regular RC-N1 remote controller for €829 and a separate Fly More Kit for €189. Even though DJI has not confirmed that this will be the case, Argos UK published its Fly More Kit product listing last week, outlining all its components. Finally, the package pictured in these hands-on videos will retail for €999, which includes the Mini 3 Pro, a battery and the RC remote controller. Reputedly, the Mini 3 Pro will be orderable from May 10 and will ship on May 17.
BREAKING: Time to start up the #Mini3Pro and the #DJIRC… this new owner took the time to show us the goods! Thanks man! Greatly appreciated. New RC looks so good. Hope the brightness will be adjustable to twice as high!https://t.co/gFPrFOdAEe pic.twitter.com/oem4owg4Wk— Jasper Ellens - 27 Leaks (@JasperEllens) May 6, 2022
