Greetings from Spain

Greetings from Birmingham Alabama USA, welcome to the forum! We look forward to hearing from you!
 
Welcome to the forum. You came to the right place, others will weigh in on your questions. Check the Mavic Air 3 forum. We look forward to your participation and your view of the world.
 
Hello from the Crossroads of America Kiket.

Good luck with your choice and welcome to the Forum. :cool:
 
Welcome to Mavic Pilots! :) Enjoy the forum!Thumbswayup
 
Welcome!
First of all a used "original" dual cam Mavic 3 is still a fully supported aircraft and will remain so just as long as any other model of Mavic 3.
The Mavic 3 (any flavor) is still the flagship consumer drone for DJI and is unsurpassed by any other consumer model.
The Air 3 is an amazing aircraft with very similar abilities as a Mavic 3 but with an arguably slightly lower quality camera.
It all depends on your budget...

Hi 3rdof5, I have the opportunity to get a Mavic 3 fly combo (second hand) at the price of an Air 3 fly combo (new) or a Mavic 3 Classic (new). I understand that the choice would be the original Mavic 3, that is correct?.

Welcome from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, USA. We have a Member's Map in the Upper Right of the Title Bar. Click on "Members" and then Click on "Member's Map…" Check it out and you might find some new flying friends.


Since you live in Spain, and you wrote in another posting that you have already obtained various drone certifications, I will not rehash the rules and regs…

Also in your other postings, you have written that you are as yet undecided which drone to get. I will only add that YouTube Videos are worth a thousand words… Be sure to watch the older videos too as they are more into the specifications good and bad… Many of the newer videos only show "WoW, Look What I did…"

Even if you have flown Drones before, here is some Good Old Fashion Advice…

You paid a lot of money for that Drone, put your phone number on it. If your drone gets lost or stuck in a tree and it finally comes down when you are not around, give the finders an opportunity to contact you so it can be returned.

Now, for the Fun Part, But do not let the excitement of the moment get the best of you. When you are going out to fly, do it slowly and deliberately. Get used to a set procedure and even practice it.

There are so many things I could write but these are the highlights that I feel need mentioning.

Plug in your phone/tablet into your controller; turn on the Controller and DJI Fly App (if it does not start on its own…). On the Drone, open the front legs, then open the back legs, and then remove the Gimbal Cover.

The Gimbal is the most delicate item on the Drone and banging or bumping can damage it. I also fastened a short "Remove Before Flight" ribbon to the cover so it's more noticeable and I do not forget to remove it…

Turn on the drone and watch it come to "life." Watching the Gimbal go through its self-check is almost like watching a puppy or kitten opening its eyes for the first time…

Place the drone down (preferably on a Landing Pad) while it finishes its self-test (collecting satellites, etc…).

Check your battery status (Phone, Drone, and Controller), check the Signal Strength, by now the Controller should have reported it updated the Home Point.

Lift off, 6 feet (2-meters) or so, hover a bit, check the controls (move the drone a bit forward, back, left, right, yaw left and right). By now, your Controller will probably report again, "Home point Updated."

If you go out in a rush and race thru your start up and take off before the drone has finished it prep, it may update its Home Point over that pond or that old tree you are flying over and in your excitement, you'll fly the drone long past it Low Battery point and when it engages Return to Home and lands in the pond or in a tree; it will be all on you…

Now go have fun, learn to fly the drone by sight before you try to fly it out a distance depending on the video feed, FPV.

I would also advise you to use YouTube and watch a lot of the Videos on flying and setting up the Drone. When it is too dark, too cold, or too wet, you can "fly it vicariously" through YouTube. Also watch some of the Blooper Drone Videos and learn how not to fly your "New Baby."

Fly On and Fly Safe…

That would be my choice.
