This is the DJI Mini 3 Pro. It was released in May 2022. I bought this drone to take aerial photos and videos of landscapes, especially along the west coast of Ireland. 

I really like this drone because it’s lightweight and easy to fly. The controls are intuitive and the smart controller makes it quick and easy to set up and fly. It shoots true vertical as well as horizontal, making it an excellent choice for anyone wanting to make content for social media. 

The battery lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the flying conditions. With the Mini 3 Pro fly more kit, you can get two extra batteries along with a few other accessories.  

The drone has several features including active track and other built-in shots to make your footage look great. Some of these features include boomerang, corkscrew, and rocket. One extremely useful feature for content creators is the true vertical shoot ability of this drone. To my knowledge, this drone was the first to introduce this feature in a consumer drone. 

If you’re thinking of buying a drone, take into consideration the following. Make sure to follow safety rules for your area and get a drone license with the Irish Aviation Authority before you fly. As mentioned about flying conditions, there are several handy apps for maps and weather that make flying easier. I use UAV Forecast for weather and Guardian for fly zone maps, although there are many other apps available.  

I really like this drone for taking photos and videos. I chose this drone because of the smart controller I could get with it. There are many benefits to get the smart controller with your drone beyond fixing phone compatibility issues, including the battery not being used on the phone or losing visibility of the drone if you get a phone call. 

This is a great drone for beginner pilots or anyone looking to create content for social media. Its light weight makes it easy to travel with and I find it very easy to set up and use. Check it out on or in store in the heart of Limerick.
