DJI Mavic 3 Serial Number Location

If you are a new DJI Mavic 3 owner and need to activate DJI Care Refresh or need to register your drone, you will need your drone serial number.

Your drone serial number is a unique 14-digit identification number required for various purposes. It is basically your drone’s number plate.

If you don’t know the DJI Mavic 3 serial number location, there are three places to get your S/N:

  • You can find your DJI Mavic 3 serial number on the side of the box.
  • You can find it inside the battery compartment.
  • You can find it inside your DJI Fly App settings.

Let me explain each of them in a bit more detail so that you can know exactly where to look.

Apparently, new users are struggling to find their Mavic 3 serial number, so let’s see where you can find yours.

DJI Mavic 3 serial number format

The DJI Mavic 3 serial number is a 20-digit alphanumeric number that is unique for each unit. Here is an example of a serial number you might find on your Mavic 3.

1581F45TB21BQ1AE0313

Important note: To avoid confusion between the digit zero (0) and the English alphabet “O”, DJI only uses the digit zero in the serial number. So every ‘0’ is a digit zero.

Previous DJI drones had 14-digit S/N numbers, but Mavic 3 has a 20-digit S/N number.

You can look for your Mavic 3 serial number in three places.

1. Serial number on the box sticker

This is the easiest way to find your Mavic 3 serial number if you still have your drone box.

Before shipping, DJI puts a removable sticker on every box containing the drone’s model, color, version, and serial number inside.

This is where you will find your drone’s serial number. It will have a barcode above it and the word “S/N” beside it, which means “Serial Number”

The serial number is printed on the removable sticker. It is not printed on the body of the box itself (check the image above)

Serial number inside battery compartment

If you don’t have your box or your mom (or wife) just threw it out, don’t worry; you can still find your Mavic 3 serial number inside the battery compartment.

If you take out the battery and look at the left side wall of the battery compartment, you will see a QR code with your serial number written beneath it.

Check the image below.

You can type the serial number from here, but if you want to avoid any mistakes, I would recommend scanning the QR code with your phone and copy/past from there.

Similarly, you can also find serial numbers for other DJI drones like the Mini 2 and DJI Mavic Air 2.

Serial number inside the DJI Fly App

If you have already activated your DJI Mavic 3, you can easily find your serial number inside the DJI Fly App.

This is helpful if you have lost your box and the sticker inside your battery compartment is erased with use over time.

To find your serial number via the DJI Fly App, follow the following simple steps:

  • Open the App screen and tap on the 3-dots in the top right corner.
  • From the menu, tap on the “About” section on the right.
  • Scroll down, and you will see “Flight Controller SN” and a 20-digit alphanumeric number in front of it. This is your serial number.

The flight Controller is basically your main circuit board inside your drone that controls all the main functions.

The serial number represents that specific flight controller.

Some people change their core board (flight controller) after a crash. Along with it, the serial number also changes, and the serial written inside the battery compartment is no longer valid.

How to DJI Remote Controller serial number

Just like your Mavic 3 flight controller has its serial number (which we usually refer to as the drone’s serial number), your DJI remote controller also has its own serial number.

The Mavic 3 comes with two different remote controllers. One is the DJI RC Pro with a screen on it. The other is DJI RC-N1 simple controller.

For both controllers, the Serial number is printed on the sticker on the controller’s backside beside the square QR code.

You can also check the serial number inside the DJI Fly App if the controller is registered with your account.

To do this, follow the instructions below:

  • Open the App screen and tap on the 3-dots in the top right corner.
  • From the menu, tap on the “About” section on the right.
  • Scroll down, and you will see “Remote Controller SN” and a 14-digit alphanumeric number in front of it. This is your remote controller serial number.

You will need your remote serial number in case it malfunctions, and you need to claim a warranty or send it for repairs.

How to find Mavic 3 battery serial number

If you are looking for your Mavic 3 battery serial number, you can find it printed on the back side of the battery at the bottom of the sticker.

During this registration, you will need to provide your drone S/N on the FAA website to register it.

Drone insurance is very common among users. Some opt for the DJI Care Refresh program, while others use third-party insurance providers.

Warranty & Repairs

In an unfortunate event of a crash or malfunction, you might need to get DJI’s help to fix your drone.

If your drone is under insurance or warranty, you will have to first provide your S/N to DJI so that they check your coverage.
