Do anyone in Europe can say something about range issues?! Many complain about it with the norm FCC... In mine, in about 500m (announced 8km norm CE) it loss connection with remote RC... It´s a mini 3 PRO with POOR connectivity. We just need a update for this drone (1300€) in full power frequency, the user can decide if he went fly in FCC or CE mode... It´s a big fortune to have in hands when some toys (200€) can go longer than a DJI MINI 3 PRO.

Hello, there. Sorry for your inconvenience. We would recommend you test in more different places, best in the open fields without signal interference. If the issue persists. please record a video for us to further verify your issue. Thanks.

Hi, thanks for your answer! It’s a little bit strange the connection, 500m, it isn’t 5KM… I already record a video with the issue in the 1st flight with e the drone. In mini 2 as well before the update it can go about 3KM, after few updates, the range is now at the same 500m at the same spot… i just fly once the mini 3 pro and it’s enough to see connection problems…

I can easily fly more than 500m in CE mode.

We will recommend you change to different places and try more times to see whether there are differences in the distance.

I can’t… I don’t know why, but at least i expecting fly it 1Km with no issues at all. In open field 500m I got problems with connection, and I don’t think this is normal…

If you enable the radar are you keeping the dot with the arrow green whilst your flying.  If its blue it means your not pointing at the drone properly.

Also worth trying another location, sometimes some places do have interference,  there is a quarry that I fly and none of my drones can get past 1000m there.

So, that’s what i’m saying… before the updates, the Dji mini 2 can go longer than 1Km, and with last updates, I can’t go more than 500m without losing connection… reminder, exact same spot, different drone, different time, different firmware… I thought it was limited by firmware… on YouTube many users can confirm this problem…

I think that’s not the problem, if was that problem, the antena must be directly and directionally pointed at the drone as well  like the drone had to be a directional antenna. It isn’t make any sense in this case, remember, 12KM in open field, I got 500meters…

The mini3 is much more sensitive to the controller being pointed correctly at the drone.

So it’s not an evolution… it’s a downgrade in the mini 3 pro. A brand new drone, almost double price as mini 2, and this is worst in all the way… it’s not making very sense to me… I’m wrong in my opinion?

In fact that’s the correct in evolution in range, in reality is the reverse with this mini Pro… I feel I bought a Ferrari for racing but in fact i just can go 10 miles hour (in a downhill)…

It may be slightly more sensitive but the range is slightly better and the video feed smoothness is outstanding.

Ive flown over 2200 miles with the Mini 3 Pro mine definitely has better range than the Mini 2.

No problem with the video, I bought it for that reason, but can you imagine making a video with the drone and can’t see what are you recording?! Making a video and in blink LOST CONNECTION… it’s annoying, right? That’s my problem… a drone just to make TikTok’s?

I’m considering that… but how so many people doesn’t complaining in FCC mode in the drone? Why they don’t put FCC mode in manual mode, in fact it’s more dangerous loss connection than fly in FCC mode… it’s the law here (PORTUGAL) flying in CE mode, but for god sake, 500m it’s ridiculous when the drone can go many KM away…

I’d try a couple of other locations and if it’s still that limited I’d be tempted to open a case with DJI.

Depending on the terrain over which you fly, the Mini3Pro is capable of covering considerably more than 500m whilst maintaining good connection with the RC.

That’s my problem… after this last updates. The issue is the same… I try already other location, but it’s almost the same, 700m and low connectivity with the remote… CE rules, but DJI had to make a power improvement like in FCC rules… in other way, the user at least can choose switching between CE and FCC mode

Seems like we Europeans are not going to get that option
