It looks like being added to yet another blacklist isn’t deterring DJI from working in the USA. As DroneDJ reports, a new paper filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) presents a new drone that will be joining their Mavic 3 product line. It’s called the Mavic 3 Classic and as the name suggests, seems to be reminiscent of, well, the older Mavic models. They’ve filed for a Class II permissive change with the FCC which essentially means it will have modifications to the Mavic 3 to dumb it down a little from its original filing.
The new Mavic 3 Classic, DJI says in the filing, will essentially sport the same construction as the original Mavic 3 drone announced in November 2021. It will have all of the same mechanics and electronics with the exception that it will feature just one camera instead of two, dropping the telephoto camera.
