Certain there was the RC-N1 as an possibility. however DJI has since discontinued it. That left few choices for Mavic 3 flyers till now. DJI initially packaged the RC distant with the Mini 3 Professional drone, however by increasing the drone fashions it may well assist, the corporate can provide it as an reasonably priced accent.
Listening to purchasers who need a extra reasonably priced possibility, DJI has began by opening up the RC distant to deal with each the usual Mavic 3 and the Cine model ought to customers need an additional distant readily available to complement the RC Professional.

So whereas it’s nifty that the RC distant has that form of law-abiding consumer won’t ever have the ability to take a look at the bounds of it with out threatening their certification, if they’ve one.
Outdoors of its federally mandated overengineered vary, the one different information level the RC distant enjoys is its light-weight .68 pound (309g) heft. At simply over half a pound, pilots gained’t be fatigued holding it throughout long-duration flights.
Make no mistake although, the important thing function right here is that Mavic 3 customers will have the ability to use the distant at a price of solely $309, versus the RC Professional distant which prices about 3 times as a lot.
And the one advantage of the RCP is that customers can set up third-party apps that work together with the Mavic 3 Cine. Large whoop. The advantages of the RC far outweigh its seldom-used liabilities.
