DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral FAQs

Aircraft #

The DJI Mavic 3M is available in Mainland China, North America, and other select regions. For more specific information regarding use and availability, check the official DJI website at

You should avoid blocking the sunlight sensor when it is in use. For example, the vegetation indices, such as NDVI, cannot be obtained when it is blocked. In addition, you should avoid rubbing the sensor, since its performance will be affected if the surface is scratched.

No, it is not waterproof.

No. However, the 4/3 CMOS wide camera of DJI Mavic 3E supports surveying without adding or marking GCPs.

Gimbal Camera #

DJI Mavic 3M features four 5.5MP single-band cameras and one 20MP RGB camera. The single-band cameras are as follows: (green (G) 550 nm ± 16 nm, red (R): 650 nm ± 16 nm, Red edge (RE): 730 nm ± 16 nm, and Near-infrared (NIR): 860 nm ± 26 nm).

Multispectral focal length: 4.34 mm (focal length); 25 mm (35mm equivalent focal range)
Visible focal length: 12.29 mm (focal length); 24 mm (35mm equivalent focal range)

Each of the five camera sensor centers has been compensated in the photo EXIF coordinates according to its position relative to the on-board D-RTK antenna phase center. When the images are mapped, the DJI Terra or DJI SmartFarm Platform automatically uses this parameter for position compensation to ensure the accuracy of the map position.

Distortions in visible and multispectral cameras are individually corrected before they are shipped.

The original photo generated does not come with vignetting correction, but the parameters used for vignetting correction are included with each photograph.

All five cameras are time synchronized.

The storage paths are as follows. For normal photography: SD card-DCIM-DJI_2022********_***
For flight path operation: SD card-DCIM-DJI_2022********_***_task name

Users who are beginners are recommended to set the exposure mode of the multispectral and visible light camera to Auto and unlock the AE. The multispectral light metering mode of the system is set to global light measurement by default. The focus mode of the visible camera will be First Waypoint Focus.

It detects the reflective strength of the object being photographed over different bands and is widely used in agriculture and forestry for crop health, vegetation coverage, water environment pollution monitoring, and more.

Transmission #

FCC: 15 km
CE: 8 km
SRRC: 8 km
MIC: 8 km
* The above data was measured by the aircraft in an unobstructed, interference-free outdoor environment. It shows the farthest communication distance for one-way, non-RTH flights under each standard. During flight, pay attention to RTH reminders in the DJI Pilot 2 App.

The internal storage (ROM) is 64 GB, and it supports the use of a microSD card to expand the storage capacity.

The DJI Mavic 3 Series remote controller does not work with Mavic 3M, but the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise-Series remote controller does.

Software #

The DJI Pilot 2 App supports importing polygon boundaries and waypoint missions for pre-planned aerial photography with KML/KMZ files. Import path: Route > KMZ Import > Select Table of Contents > Internal Storage/SD Card > Locate the KML/KMZ file.

The DJI Pilot 2 App supports importing DSM data for terrain follow during aerial surveying. DSM files are imported as follows: Flight Path > Create Flight Path> Mapping Mission > Terrain Follow > DSM File Selection > Select Table of Contents > Internal Storage/SD card > Find DSM File for Import.

Yes. You can schedule a flight path by importing a KMZ or KML file or, create flight path on Pilot 2.

Yes, the vegetation indices, such as NDVI, can be viewed in real-time on the remote controller during flight.

Flight Height: 500 m;
Flight Speed: Maximum horizontal flight speed is 21 m/s, minimum horizontal flight speed is 1 m/s (no wind, near sea level)

Via Input the corresponding coordinates along with the date and time zone to confirm the sun’s altitude angle changes over time for that day.

Visible camera (orthophoto): (H/37.2) cm/pixel
Multispectral camera (orthophoto): (H/21.7) cm/pixel

The recommended environment for multispectral data acquisition with DJI Mavic 3M is when light conditions are good and the sun’s altitude angle is not less than 30°.

The DJI Mavic 3M can directly perform terrain-follow aerial surveying via downward vision. It can also import DSM data for terrain-follow aerial surveying.

Yes. You can automate routine inspections and capture consistent results every time. Onboard AI recognizes the subject of interest and identifies it in subsequent automated missions to ensure consistent framing.

Battery #

When used with a DJI 100W USB-C Power Adapter, it takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes to fully charge an Intelligent Flight battery with the DJI Mavic 3M Charging Hub (100 W).
When connecting directly to the aircraft via the DJI 100W USB-C Power Adapter, it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to fully charge an Intelligent Flight battery.

42 minutes.
* This data was measured using the DJI Mavic 3M in windless conditions at sea level at a constant speed of 36 kph until the battery reached 0%. Use for reference only. Please pay attention to RTH prompts in the DJI Pilot 2 app when flying

Accessories #

The intelligent flight battery and propeller guards.

No, they are not compatible.

The PSDK port supports the RTK Module and official DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series Speaker

Optional. Additional purchase required.

The DJI 100W USB-C Power Adapter comes with a USB-C power cable that can sustain 100 W of power output. Direct connection to the DJI RC Pro Enterprise Edition has a charging power of 30 W, direct connection to the aircraft has a charging power of 88 W, and direct connection to the charging hub has a charging power of 100 W.

The DJI Mavic 3M’s Intelligent Flight battery, DJI 100W USB-C Power Adapter, and DJI Mavic 3 Charging Hub (100 W) all support PD and PPS fast charging protocols. DJI RC Pro Enterprise Edition supports PD and QC protocols.
