Featured image for DJI Mini 3 Pro vs DJI Mini 2: what's new, improved

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.

If you are wanting a drone with a great camera, the peace of mind obstacle avoidance brings, and some of the smarter shooting modes the DJI Mini 3 Pro is the drone for you.

Both drones are amazing deals, and you really can't go wrong with either.
