The new DJI Mini 3 Pro has been released with a wide range of improvements and features over the older Mini 2. Let's take a closer look at all the differences between the two drones.

Which drone is right for you?

If you are looking for a cheap drone to start out with and don't care about the specs too much the Mini 2 is the drone for you. As it is an older model it will also be on sale a lot more, making it an even better deal.
