This DJI Mini 3 Pro video and photo transfer guide shows you how to quickly download your files from your drone to your mobile devices using the QuickTransfer feature.
Please note that DJI Mini 3 and DJI Mavic 3 also support QuickTransfer, Mavic 3 pilots can also follow this guide to learn how to use it.
QuickTransfer is a fast and convenient way for pilots to download videos and photos to mobile devices without using an SD card reader or cable.
You can directly connect your mobile device to the DJI Mini 3 Pro through Wi-Fi so that you can download videos and photos from the aircraft to your mobile device by using the DJI Fly app. You don’t even need to use the DJI RC-N1 remote controller. The max transmission rate is up to 30 MB/s.
1. If you use the DJI RC to fly your drone or your mobile device is not connected to the remote controller. You can follow this guide to transfer your files.
Step 1. Power on your DJI Mini 3 Pro / DJI Mini 3 and wait until the self-diagnostic tests are done.
Step 2. Launch the DJI Fly app and then a prompt will appear saying Switch to QuickTransfer Mode. Tap on Switch.
Step 3. Wait for the connection. During the process, a prompt will pop up to ask you to join the DJI Mini 3’s network, tap on Join.
Step 4. After connecting successfully, you will be able to access all the files stored on your microSD card by tapping the View Album button.
Step 5. Choose the videos or photos you want to download, then tap on the download icon in the bottom right-hand corner and choose where you want to save the photos or videos to.
2. If you’re flying your DJI Mini 3 Pro / DJI Mini 3 with the DJI RC-N1 Remote Controller and you have your mobile device connected to it, the QucikTransfer feature is a little bit different.
Here is a quick guide for you.
Step 1. Launch the DJI Fly app on your mobile device, then tap on the Playback icon to enter the Album screen where you can see all the photos and videos stored on the memory card.
Step 2. Tap on the lightning bolt icon on the top right-hand side, and then select the Switch button on the popup. The lightning bolt icon will turn yellow once it’s connected successfully.
Step 3. Choose the files you want to download to start the transfer process.
- 1. Make sure your mobile device’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are enabled
- 2. Make sure your aircraft has enough power for the transfer process especially when you try to download a lot of videos.
- 3. The transfer speed is up to 30 MB/s, normally you may get a slightly lower speed because of the interference and distance your drone is away from your mobile device.
- 4. It works the same whether you’re transferring to an iPhone or an Android device you can follow along with the same steps.
- 5. QuickTransfer doesn’t work for DJI RC, that is to say, you can not use this method to download your files to your DJI RC.
Depending on which remote controller you are using, the QuickTransfer is slightly different. Some pilots also said that the QuickTransfer doesn’t work properly all the time, if you also have this problem, just check my other post How Fix DJI Mini 3 Pro QuickTrnasfer not working.
