DJI Air 3S leaks take flight as the drone king braces for a looming US ban

The prospect of a ban on DJI drones in the US doesn’t seem to have fazed the market-leading drone maker, with a new leak suggesting the DJI Air 3S is about to launch.

Reliable DJI leaker @Quadro_News shared a two-second video on X showing a drone in flight, and tagged the video with #djiair3S (see below). The video is followed by another post with a still image from the video series: a close-up of the underside of the mysterious drone, which you can also see below, and which @Quadro_News has suggested is the DJI Air 3S.

It’s the first leak we’ve seen from a reliable source about a future DJI Air 3 successor, and it comes almost a year after that drone – the company’s most recent Air model – was announced. Given the source of the video, we think it’s legit, although it reveals few details about a potential Air 3S and only suggests it’s on its way.
