Hi! My name is Narendra Vardi, and I write about my learnings, observations and trends in the Software world. Besides software, I also talk about photography, travel stories, books and movies. If that's something that interests you, consider subscribing.

On my Instagram photography account: @worthyphotographer, many people ask me to recommend a drone.

I haven't used many drones, and only a single-digit number of people have a drone within my close circle. I want to tell them immediately that I am not an expert in this topic, but after some introspection, I thought I could guide people.

I am not a professional drone user, but I did a significant amount of research before I purchased the DJI Mini 3 Pro. I also viewed many YouTube videos and Instagram reels on various nitty-gritty details of drone usage. After all these learnings, I still feel that DJI Mini 3 Pro is the best drone I bought.

This is Part-I of the series of articles where I discuss why the DJI Mini3 Pro is the best beginner drone.

In this article, I discuss the features built into DJI Mini3 Pro that make it one of the safest and most secure drones to drive.

Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing

One of the significant challenges of beginner drone users is the high possibility of error while driving the drone. As I mentioned in Learning to fly a drone and (three + one) dimensional space, flying a drone is not easy and is not a computer game. In computer games, one can make mistakes and rectify them, but while flying a drone, some mistakes cause severe damage to the drone and in some rare cases, to birds, animals, and humans.

This is where Tri-Directional Obstacle Sensing helps the beginner. If the user moves a drone towards an object by mistake, the drone will sense the obstacle and avoids hitting that object. This is quite helpful for beginners because it eliminates all the tension and risks while starting to fly a drone.

Be cautious; this obstacle sensing doesn't work when the drone moves sideways.

Return to Home (RTH)

Another challenge for beginner drone users is difficulty navigating the drone back home. Imagine flying a drone to a faraway place in excitement and struggling to return it.

DJI Mini3 Pro makes it easy to return home with the Return to Home feature.

All you have to do is click on the RTH button when the drone is flying and notice the magic happen.

When you select RTH, the drone automatically flies back to the Home Point - the point at which the drone took off.

Ensure that RTH altitude is configured correctly and that someone is at the Home Point location.

Low Battery Alerts

Whenever the drone has less than a few minutes of flight time left, the drone controller (the device which is in the hands of the drone user) alerts the user to land immediately, and after one point, it will force the user to land the drone. This is very important, as tracking the battery left while filming drone videos is pretty tricky.

You can force the controller to stop and not land the drone during low battery time. Why would you do that anyway?

Now I am sure you understand why DJI Mini3 Pro is one of the safest drones to fly.

In the upcoming articles, I will talk about the video capabilities and advanced features provided by it.
