Well done to YouTuber Darren McHardy for getting hold of a Mini Pro 3 and posting the first reviews before the official launch, he deserves all the review views! I suspect a few DJI shills will be getting firmly out of shape..

For industry inspections, DJI has finally caught up with Asctec and Parrot being able to look up!

This machine will very likely make its way into many infrastructure inspectors’ pockets.
