DJI’s new Mavic 3 Classic drone was released earlier today. It features a Hasselblad camera, the ability to shoot 5.1K video and 46 minute flight-time. Additionally, the Mavic 3 Classic is compatible with existing DJI RC Pro, DJI RC, and DJI RC-N1 to, as DJI puts it, “put premium performance in a more affordable package”.

Ferdinand Wolf, Creative Director at DJI said: “DJI is moving forward to give more creators access to the photographic excellence and operational reliability that are the hallmarks of the Mavic 3 Series. With the launch of Mavic 3 Classic, we hope to see even more creators putting our top-of-the-line tools to work and pushing their creativity past their old limits.”

The DJI Mavic 3 Classic is available to buy today from and authorised retail partners. It can be bought by itself for £1309/$1469. It is worth noting that this does not include a remote controller or charger. The drone can also be bought with a charger and a remote controller (£1399-1529/$1599-1749). There’s also the Mavic 3 Fly More Kit, which includes two batteries, a battery charging hub, a car charger, low-noise propellers and a DJI Convertible Carrying Bag (£599).
