Surprisingly even thought DJI themselves are quoting a lead time of a month for the Mini 3 Pro with RC Amazon have stock and as such I couldn't resist clicking the 'buy' button; turned up this evening and wow what an impressive bit of kit.

Replacing my old Spark so quite a jump in spec/capabilty, although maybe not build quality, the spark feels like a tank compared to the mini. :p

Something has got to give when keeping it under the 250g limit.

@Rilot how are you getting on with the ND filters, still happy with them? I need to get a set for the mini 3.

Used a combination of a ND4 and ND8 on my old Spark to just take the edge off the highlights but that had a f/2.6 lens compared to the f/1.7 of the Mini3 that lets in more light.

Thanks.
Pretty scary flying a brand new drone over open water. I ran 3 batteries through it that day, only coming back over land to change them out. It performed impeccably.

For those who have a Mini 3 Pro, is it normal to have some play in the front propeller arms when extended?

When unfolded, my Mini 3 Pro's front right propeller arm allows more movement back and forth than the front left arm. The front right arm is also slightly looser when folded up. I am just trying to work out whether I have an issue with it or not. The drone seems to fly normally and I have had the drone from new with no crashes or drops; in fact, I have only taken the drone out for one flight so far.
