How's it going everyone aldrin estas ceo Here with flightpath.com ever since i Posted my review on the mini 3 pro a lot Of people wanted to see a little bit More in-depth details about this Comparison right here the mini 3 pro Versus the autel nano plus and main Reason why this is more of a comparison Because the fact that they are very Similar as far as weight goes they're Both under that 250 gram mark and when It comes to camera sensor and specs very Similar on these two right here and We'll first talk about the specs of the Drones what do they have to offer and What are my experiences with them and Then towards the end of the video we'll Talk about some of the major pros and Cons between these two drones now let's Jump right into size and weight when They are unfolded as you can see here Size wise the mini 3 pro definitely has A little bit larger of a footprint However when they're folded down they Are very much the same size as you can See when i put them down here a little Bit taller of course with these sensors Here up top but for the most part very Similar when folded down they're very Similar in size now of course why are These some of the most popular ones well They are sitting under that 250 gram Mark both of them are rated for 249 grams with the standard batteries in

Them as far as the mini 3 pro now the 250 gram mark is pretty important for Some people in certain areas uh there's Less regulations for drones under 250 Grams now let's talk about pricing of These drones octal actually just Recently had a price cut the drone for The nano plus used to be 949 and that comes with the drone and Your remote control they've recently Lowered that price now to 879 dollars and you get the standard Package you get the drone remote control And all these standard accessories that Would come with it now for the dji mini 3 pro we have a similar package which Runs you 759 you would get the drone and the rc N1 remote control this would be the Standard remote control for the mini 3 Pro the one thing that dji did release Though with the mini 3 pro is the Ability to upgrade to this remote which Is the dji rc i really like this combo Right here and if you were to get this Combo the drone and the remote control Comes out to 909 Usd and i just like this because you Don't have to have your mobile phone Attached these remote controls right Here you're going to need a mobile Device attached to it in order for you To see your screen and change all of Your settings next we'll talk about

Flight time in the air and for me when i Normally do a flight time test i'll just Normally do a hover test now for the Autel nano plus the standard battery That comes in your drone is rated for 28 Minutes and the standard battery or the 249 gram and under battery on the dji Mini 3 is rated for 34 minutes now i did My own standard hover test like i Normally do with all the drones and Actually i put these up in my backyard When there's a lot of wind going on just For a standard hover i was able to get 22 minutes on the autel nano plus and For the mini 3 pro i was able to get About 26 and a half minutes on this Standard battery here the one thing i do Like that dji has to offer over the nano Plus is that they not only have the Standard battery which is available but They also have this extended battery the 47 minute rated battery for the mini 3 Pro of course a lot of people are Putting these head to head because of The camera quality camera sensors on These are very similar on the dji mini 3 Pro we have a 1 over 1.3 inch cmos Sensor and here on the autel nano plus We have a 1 over 1.2 inch sensor and When it comes to aperture size we have An f 1.7 on the mini 3 pro and an f 1.9 Both these cameras have nice really wide Open apertures allowing you to get more Light in in low light scenarios one of

The newest features that we do have here On the mini 3 pro which we don't have Here on the nano plus is the ability to Do this vertical or portrait shooting on The drone for a lot of people that are Into social media that post on Everything from tick tock instagram real Stories everything is in that portrait Or vertical mode and now you're able to Easily with a tap of a button switch That camera from horizontal to portrait Mode now because these drones are super Small and light they are pretty prone to Take on a lot of wind so when they're up There in the air you can kind of see Them fighting the wind a lot they are Both rated for level five wind Resistance the one thing i did notice Though when putting a lot from side to Side is that you'll see a lot more kind Of just smaller jerky movements on the Nano just even when i was doing my basic Cover test you'll see that both of them Were fighting the wind but you'll see Just a lot more shakiness a lot more Kind of these micro vibrations smaller Movements with the nano versus the mini Three pro now when it comes to video Resolution we do have now 4k 60 frames a Second on the mini 3 pro on the nano Plus we are still at the 4k 30 frames a Second if you wanted to jump up in Higher frame rates on something like the Nano you're going to have to lower that

Resolution down to 2.7 or 1080p now when It comes to video quality that's one of The things that a lot of people like Putting these two side by side against The quality out of both these are very Very good i think the biggest difference Here is that when you look at the nano Footage while it does come out very very Clean very very crisp it does have a lot More sharpness to the video and that Might perceive to be a lot better Quality but overall very impressed with The nano footage as well as the dji mini 3 very very high quality video coming Out of this both of them just have that Different color profiles or standard Color profiles that they push out so of Course you're going to see a difference When you put them side by side i do feel Like the dji profile as far as the Standard profile has a more kind of Softer natural look to it but like i Said a lot of that is really up to Preference some people prefer that Sharper image a sharper look out of the Nano versus the softer a little bit more Natural look coming out of the dji drone When it comes to photos and photography We do have 50 megapixels on the nano Plus we have 48 megapixels on the mini 3 Pro luckily enough both of these do Shoot jpeg and raw now when it comes to Video transmission between these two Drones both of them work really really

Well we have the ocusync on the dji side As well as the skylink on autel both These drones are rated for great Distances i believe it's around 12 Kilometers on the dji both those of Course are gonna be far far further than You would ever more likely fly your Drone for me i normally will keep my Drone around one two maybe three Thousand feet away normally it's under a Mile there's of course going to be some You know times where you're going to Have weak reception and i've had that Both on the nano as well as the mini 3 Even though they're rated for that far Away you'll still sometimes have your Bars drop you might have some you know Slowed reception but for the most part Once you adjust it once you reassess Where you're pointing your antennas You'll more than likely have some pretty Good range as far as line of sight goes Next we'll jump into the intelligent Flight modes and the reason why we're Able to have intelligent flight modes is That both of these do have obstacle Avoidance we have sensors here on the Very front on both of them we have Sensors here at the very bottom and also On the back testing on optical avoidance On both of these work fine nothing too Crazy you know it will send something in Front behind it and both the drones will Just automatically slow down the one

Thing that is nice about the dji drone Is that it does have a pass so even if It does come up to an obstacle if you Have a pass turned on you can choose to Have this drone go around it go on top Yeah you're able to change what you want The drone to do when it faces an Obstacle we don't have that option here On the nano once an obstacle is detected It'll warn you in the app and it'll just Automatically slow down and stop some of The other intelligent flight modes Include quick shots so if you're not Familiar with quick shots basically a Bunch of automated features you're able To do some intelligent modes where You're able to press a button and the Drone will either automatically do a Droney it'll do a circle around the Subject it'll go on top of the subject Both these drones have that they're Called quick shots here on the dji side Also has different words for them they Call it rocket and flick and orbit and Fadeaway but very similar to the quick Shots if you're used to dji one very Similar on the nano the one they know is Very frustrating with the nano plus is That this thing was released back in January and they advertised dynamic Track on all their drones and it never Came it came so later down the line now Tested the dji mini 3 multiple times When i went to the hill also out front

Here and also chasing you know boats and Things like that never really had any Issues with this this thing does really Really well when it comes to follow me Functions active track spotlight as well As point of interest there are of course Those times where your subject will be Lost if it's trying to track a little Bit too fast but i mean for the most Part it does what you expect it to do The one thing with the autel drone is That it took them five or six months to Come out with the following function for The nano and just doing some basic tests Out in front of my house i put this Thing in track mode and just had it Follow me from behind and for some Reason i kept getting warnings of Insufficient space to track tracking Will exit and there was no contrast Issues it was bright day i was in the Middle of my street So you know sometimes when i would do Some of my tracking i would kind of you Know maybe try to understand hey you Know maybe it lost me in the shadow this Thing right in the middle of street kept Losing me for some odd reason so even Basic tracking still seems a lot further Away a lot further behind than the mini 3 pro alright i'm actually cutting into This video because i'm editing the video That you're currently watching right now And the one thing is that i realized was

Wrong with the tracking or dynamic track On the autel nano and i haven't talked To autel about this at all is the fact That it actually wasn't supposed to be Or not it's still not actually updated In the app what's weird is it worked and The reason why it worked is because i Think i kind of did some well not really A hack but basically what i did was i Flew the Light the autel light and that actually Does have the dynamic track on there They did update dynamic track on the Light they didn't update it on the nano And when i went on their website Very bottom of the dynamic track image It does say it will be released in a Future In a future firmware update but what was Interesting is that when i did fly it i Flew the light first and then i flew the Nano plus and this Might just be not really a hack but What's happening is is that when the Uh autel app was still open It then opened up with the nano and it Already had the tracking available When i was flying the light so i think What was happening is that it was giving Me the ability to actually kind of use Tracking but it just didn't work well as You guys saw i kept getting these little Prompts these little notifications Saying that there's insufficient space

And things like that so this wasn't Really working well uh and i think it's Just because of fact it's still not Actually on The nano the firmware is not updated Here on the nano plus and i didn't Realize that because i went out again And i flew and did some of the quick Shot modes and i'm like where is the Tracking In the app i'm not seeing the track Anymore it's gone and i think that's the Reason why i was able to actually kind Of turn on tracking when i was doing the Test initially because the app was Already open when i was flying the light And all it did was i turned off the Light turned on the nano and the app Didn't switch or didn't Uh readjust to basically uh take away The tracking that's the reason why it Kind of worked but didn't so in a way It's good and bad because yes i kind of Hacked a way to use tracking on it However it's not ready And it's bad because we are now in june And we still don't have the proper Tracking on the nano plus so just wanted To give that disclaimer out there Because some people are going to be like Oh i didn't know that there's tracking On the nano technically they're still Not and i just figured out a way to kind Of turn it on by launching it using the

Light first and then Using the nano now like i mentioned the Specs on these are very very similar but When it comes down to usability and just Confidence using a drone this is where i Lean of course towards dji because they Just have a trusted system a trusted Platform that has been out for a very Long time the thing with dji is whenever You pick up any one of their drones Whether it be a mini whether it be a Mavic whether it be a phantom an inspire You pretty much know what to expect from It how to fly it and the one thing you Want when you're out there especially These platforms right here are geared Towards beginners the one thing you do Want is to have that confidence to know What you're flying and what it's going To be doing that's one thing i think With the autel drones they've definitely Struggled even when i was flying the First autel uh the auto evo then alta Evo2 Sometimes with these drones right here You just don't know what to expect Because it will start moving on you when You're not actually trying to pilot it In a specific way the dji drones in General just feel a lot more responsive A lot more accurate to what you're doing On the sticks versus the autel drones Also speaking of firmware updates that's One thing you just don't know with the

Autel drones is that when are they going To do the updates to give you some of These features In a more reasonable amount of time like I said this drone came out in january And most people just barely started Getting the tracking feature the for the Past month two months now and that was Something that they were you know really Pushing forward with with these smaller Drones it does it has obstacle avoidance It has tracking but it took them four to Five months to put it on here versus Here we already have that in there and You already know what to expect with the Drones now granted we didn't get the Same thing on the mavic 3 the mavic 3 Did take about i believe about a month And a half or so To get the tracking and to get a lot of The features and also we're still Getting firmware updates on the mavic 3 But at least we've know that when it's Stated in there that it is going to be Coming we know it's more likely going to Come now one of the biggest benefits of The autel drones though and i've talked About this when i talked about the light As well as the evo is that they don't Have the geofencing that you do have With the dji drones now it's definitely A good and bad thing you always want the Geofencing just to keep you secure keep You away and keep you alert of things

Around you however there are some places Sometimes where you're flying and you Still might be within the area of a geo Fence and you might just want to take The drone up 50 feet up in the air 100 Feet up in the air just to take a quick Picture maybe of a house of a subject of A landmark and you're not able to do That on some of the dji drones without Going through a lot of the you know Hoops to to get permission to do that Overall both these drones are very very Good when it comes down to video quality For me it just comes down to usability i Just feel a lot more comfortable using The dji drones because you know what to Expect with them every single time i put The nano up in the air there's always Something quirky something either Jittery moving The sticks aren't responding the way i Anticipate them new and because of that I'm i'm optimistic that you know octal Will always come out with a firmer Update but like i said those firmware Updates sometimes take a very very long Time and there it is guys you guys Wanted me to talk a little bit more in Depth about these two drones right here Ever since i posted my review video on The mini 3 pro so i just want to give You guys a lot more details if you guys Are shopping around and trying to find What's the best or what drone i want to
