DJI has released its latest drone in the Mavic 3 line up, DJI Mavic 3 Classic. DJI's Mavic 3 Classic features a Hasselblad branded 20MP 5.1K capable 4/3 CMOS camera and a flight time of up to 46 minutes with the same Mavic 3 batteries.


Mavic 3 Classic features the same Hasselblad L2D-20c camera from the standard Mavic 3 line. The camera is capable of taking 20MP photos, recording at 5.1k/50fps and 4k/120fps slow motion. The sensor is capable capturing photos at a 12-bit RAW image depth and has 12.8 stops of dynamic range.

The sensor has an adjustable aperture of f/2.8 to f/11 with an equivalent focal length of 24mm and ability to capture video in 10-bit D-log for better editing control. A night shots mode is also built-in for improved image quality in low-light during sunrises, sunsets, and features HLG for improved dynamic range.

Safety and ease-of-use

Omnidirectional obstacle sensing

Equipped with APAS 5.0, Mavic 3 Classic senses objects in all directions and bypasses them as they get close, allowing for safer flights.

Cruise control

Cruise control allows Mavic 3 Classic to be set at a certain speed and left to move at that speed without the need for stick input, allowing for more focus to be placed on controlling the camera and capturing the shot.

Advanced RTH

Advanced RTH allows Mavic 3 Classic to automatically determine the best route back to the take-off location while following the designated RTH height programmed into the controller.

O3+ transmission

Mavic 3 Classic features DJI's O3+ transmission system giving it a transmission distance of up to 15km with a 1080p/60fps live feed.

Smart features

DJI Mavic 3 Classic features a number of smart features to make flying and capturing the perfect shot easy, including ActiveTrack, MasterShots, QuickShots, Hyperlapse, Panorama, and High-Speed QuickTransfer. All of these modes but the last one gives users the ability to create unique content without the need to manually control the drone.

Packages and pricing

The DJI Mavic 3 Classic comes in three versions, one with the newer DJI RC (built-in display), RC-N1 (requires a mobile device), and with no controller at all. These options come as no surprise as DJI continues to push the usage of its DJI RC series of controllers, removing the need to use an external mobile device.

Pricing starts at AU$2,299 for the version without a controller, AU$2,399 for the version with the RC-N1 controller, and AU$2,599 for the version with the DJI RC controller.

The DJI Mavic 3 Classic uses the same battery as the rest of the Mavic 3 line-up and uses different ND filters and a different wide-angle lens from the standard Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 CINE.
