DJI Mini 3 Pro Receives Firmware Update with “Tripod Mode”

Drone manufacturer, DJI, has recently launched a firmware update for the DJI Mini 3 Pro. The update, v01.00.0500, introduces two new features – Reset All Settings and Clear All Data options, as well as Gain and Expo Tuning. However, it is the latter feature that is causing excitement, with some enthusiasts dubbing it the “new tripod mode.”

The “Added Gain and Expo Tuning” feature in the new firmware update for DJI Mini 3 Pro allows for adjustments to the maximum speeds. brake sensitivity, and other settings in each flight mode including cinematic, normal and sport modes, resulting in super-slow and smooth movements. This feature will be useful for those who want more control over their drone’s movements and are looking to capture stunning cinematic shots.

Additionally, the firmware update for DJI Mini 3 Pro also adds Reset All Settings and Clear All Data options. With these features, users can easily reset the drone and remote controller to their factory settings. The Reset All Settings option deletes all data stored in the internal storage, microSD card, and SSD, including flight logs. However, users are advised not to delete flight logs in case an accident occurs during flight, and they need to claim compensation from DJI. More information on these features can be found in the DJI Mini 3 Pro user manual v1.6.

Philip Bloom, an award-winning filmmaker and DJI owner, led a campaign to bring back the super-slow Tripod Mode, which was replaced by Cine Mode on older DJI drones. However, some users found Cine Mode too fast, and DJI responded by introducing an adjustable Cine Mode on the DJI Mavic 3 Classic. Now, the same feature has been added to the DJI Mini 3 Pro via this latest firmware update.


The new firmware update can be downloaded free of charge via the DJI Fly app.

DJI Mini 3 Pro is available to purchase for $669 (drone only), $759 (drone with the RC-N1 remote controller), or $909 (drone with the DJI RC remote controller).
