DJI Mavic 3 review: flying fortress

Replace February 2022: This assessment has been up to date following our re-test of the DJI Mavic 3, which we performed after its two large firmware updates in December 2021 and January 2022.

Two-minute assessment

The DJI Mavic 3 is probably the most highly effective folding drone the corporate has made up to now – and in pure efficiency phrases, it is also the very best. However the large enhancements over the DJI Mavic 2 Professional include a price. Which means that for many non-professionals, the smaller and extra inexpensive DJI Air 2S is the higher all-round purchase.
