DJI Mavic 3 update finally makes it a drone I’m looking to buy

It’s no secret that the DJI Mavic 3 drone arrived in a pretty undercooked state when it landed last November. Luckily, a series of firmware updates have turned it into a much tastier proposition since then – and a new update, which makes it compatible with the DJI RC controller, has made it a drone I’m now finally considering buying.

Until now, the DJI Mavic 3 has offered only two official controller options. The underwhelming DJI RC-N1, which uses your smartphone’s screen and isn’t really suitable for such a high-end drone, and the painfully expensive DJI RC Pro ($1,199 / £879 / AU$1,529), which you can also buy as part of the Mavic 3 Cine Premium Combo.

Neither of these are ideal and there’s been a gaping hole between them for a pro-friendly controller that doesn’t cost the same as an iPhone 13 Pro. DJI did previously have the Smart Controller, which wasn’t compatible with the Mavic 3 when it launched. But it’s now since released that much-needed sweet spot – the new DJI RC controller, which arrived alongside the DJI Mini 3 Pro in May.

It’s been a painful two-month wait, but the DJI RC controller – which crucially comes with a built-in screen – is now finally compatible with the DJI Mavic 3, thanks to the controller’s new v01.01.0000 firmware. And I think that now makes it a far better buy, particularly for keen hobbyists.
