The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has received documents from DJI for a new drone that will be joining the Mavic 3 family. Additionally, the fact that the DJI Mavic 3 Classic officially entered the FCC database suggests that the latest drone from the tech giant may soon be available for purchase.

Mavic 3 Classic - a new DJI drone

DJI asked the FCC for a Class II permissive change for its newest aircraft. Thus, this indicates that the modifications made to the new product will diminish the performance attributes provided to the FCC at the time of the initial certification. According to DJI's explanation in the documents, the Mavic 3 Classic drone would have the same technological design, including electrical and mechanical components, as the Mavic 3 drone, first unveiled in November 2021. DJI Mavic 3 Classic However, DJI will drop the tele lens because Mavic 3 Classic only has one camera instead of two, which is the biggest change. In addition, the lens version will also vary. However, prior leaks indicate that the camera specifications would probably not change. Furthermore, Mavic 3 Classic should be able to capture 20MP still images in 12-bit RAW format as well as 5.1K and 4K movies at 50 and 120 frames per second, respectively. Additionally, an aperture that can be adjusted between f/2.8 and f/11 should be able to accommodate the needs of aerial photographers in a wide range of lighting conditions to produce sharper, more vivid photographs. DJI Mavic 3 Classic Meanwhile, DJI will also make a few circuit and component changes for the Mavic 3 Classic drone, including -
  • Software-defined radio (SDR) communication system's RF filter modification without any RF parameters tuning.
  • To optimize the size and layout of the printed circuit board (PCB), DJI deleted some unused interfaces, peripheral circuits, and motor speed control components.
  • Software-enabled feature upgrades for European operations, such as flying in the 5170-5250 MHz band and using Galileo satellite navigation.

Other Details

Although the Mavic 3 Classic's price is unknown, DJI would prefer to put the device in the $1,300–$1,500 range to entice buyers prepared to forgo a tele lens in favor of a drone that is affordable.

For instance, the Mavic 3's motors and propellers provide improved energy efficiency when compared to prior DJI consumer drones. In addition, the drone's structure and parts are lighter, and the arms, body, and gimbal have been redesigned using aerodynamics to reduce drag. Also, in wind tunnel tests, the Mavic 3 produces 35% less drag, enabling faster top speeds with a higher-capacity battery. Similarly, the drone manufacturer would want to include the most recent DJI RC remote controller with its new offering, which has a lightweight body, FHD display, and exceptionally long battery life.
