The highly anticipated DJI Air 3 drone has made an appearance in regulatory filings, accompanied by two yet-to-be-announced remote controllers, DJI RC 2 and DJI RC-N2, according to information obtained from the FCC database. Although the filings do not reveal much due to the confidentiality request made by DJI to hide photos and user manuals, it indicates that the launch date is approaching in line with previous reports.
Several leaks have already surfaced regarding the DJI Air 3, with German website WinFuture sharing alleged marketing images of the drone and its peripherals. The images depict a dual-camera setup and a design similar to the Mavic 3, but interestingly, the cameras do not bear the Hasselblad marking found on the Mavic lineup, suggesting a potential distinction between the two series.
The FCC filings also confirm DJI's plans to release two upgraded remote controllers for the Air 3. The RC 2 resembles the original RC from the Mini 3 Pro but now features two external antennas for improved connectivity. The RC-N2, on the other hand, does not show any visible external changes but is expected to offer a better connection with the drone.
Notably, the FCC paperwork reveals that the Air 3 will come with a larger 4241mAh battery, approximately 30% larger than its predecessor. This upgrade is expected to significantly increase the drone's flight time compared to the Air 2S, which is currently being discounted to clear inventory. As DJI continues to release product teasers on the same day as FCC filings, further updates on the Air 3 can be expected soon.
