In this article, I’ll walk you through it all, in plain, everyday English. No rocket science here, I promise.

Let’s Get Started
Before we get to the fun part, make sure both your Mini 3 Pro and its trusty sidekick, the remote controller, are juiced up and ready to roll. A full battery is like a plane ticket; without it, you’re not going anywhere.
Firing Up Your Mini 3 Pro
The Mini 3 Pro offers two combos – one with the RC-N1 controller and the other with the DJI RC controller. But regardless of your choice, DJI’s got your back with a specific power-up sequence.
For RC-N1 Admirers
Press Once, Then Hold: To wake up your RC-N1 controller, tap the power button once and then hold it down. As you do, those nifty green LED lights will tell you how charged up your controller is.
Fun Fact: If you’ve got your phone connected to the RC-N1, it might just wake up and say hello when the controller boots up. You might even get a pop-up asking if you want to launch the DJI Fly app. Feel free to hit ’em up.
For DJI RC Fans
Press Once, Then Hold: If you’re the lucky owner of the DJI RC controller, follow the same dance. Press that power button once, then hold it down. As it awakens, you’ll see the DJI splash screen and hear that familiar ascending tone.
After about 10-20 seconds, you’ll find yourself on the DJI Fly home screen, ready for takeoff.
Starting Up the Mini 3 Pro: How To Turn On DJI Mini 3 Pro?
Powering up the Mini 3 Pro needs a little more attention, but it’s no big deal.
Step 1: Remember to remove the gimbal cover from the camera. Forgetting this step one too many times can lead to gimbal heartbreak down the line.
Step 2: Tap the power button once, located at the rear of your Mini 3 Pro. Just like the remote controllers, the LEDs on the Mini 3 Pro will light up, showing off how much juice you’ve got left. Hold down the power button immediately.
As you do this, the motors will do a little shimmy, and you’ll hear a sound. That’s the gimbal giving itself a quick checkup.
Step 3: If you’re using an RC-N1 and the DJI Fly app didn’t decide to wake up on its own when the controller powered up, you can invite it to the party manually.
Time to Power Down
Just like there’s a protocol for waking up, there’s also a way to tuck your gear in for a nap. Follow these steps for a smooth and safe landing.

Press Once, Then Hold: To power down the Mini 3 Pro, press the power button once and then hold it. The Mini 3 Pro LED indicator lights will do a little countdown, flash their goodbyes, and then fade into darkness. The LED lights on the arms and legs will bid adieu as well.
Turning Off the RC-N1
Press Once, Then Hold: If you’re using the RC-N1, give it the same treatment. Press the power button once, then hold it down. As you do this, you’ll hear a descending tune, telling you that the RC is ready for a nap.
Once the RC-N1 is snoring, make sure to close the DJI Fly app if it’s still wide awake.
Turning Off the DJI RC
Press Once, Then Hold: For those with the DJI RC controller, follow suit. Press the power button once, then hold it down. Just like with the RC-N1, you’ll hear a gentle descending tune, indicating that the DJI RC is ready to snooze.
At this point, the DJI Fly app will politely shut its doors.
And there you have it, my friend. You’re now armed with the wisdom to start up and shut down your Mini 3 Pro and remote controllers like a seasoned pilot. These steps are the secret sauce to keeping your drone and gear in top shape for all those incredible flights ahead. So, go ahead, spread your wings, and capture some breathtaking moments with your Mini 3 Pro. Happy flying!
