Introducing the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise – the replacement for Phantom 4 RTK
Drones are one of the newest and most popular innovations for surveyors. By surveying from the air using the latest camera technology, surveys can be conducted from a new perspective, delivering highly accurate results in less time and at less of a cost compared with traditional methods.
DJI Enterprise Phantom 4 RTK has been widely considered the go-to drone for aerial surveying. With features including RTK for centimeter-level positioning and 1 inch CMOS 20MP wide camera for precise imaging, P4RTK was a popular choice among surveyors as it demonstrated true value for money.
Unfortunately, Phantom 4 RTK has come to the end of its lifecycle and has been declared discontinued. Fortunately, however, its replacement is more than suitable.
The Phantom 4 RTK Replacement
Meet the Mavic 3 Enterprise – your everyday commercial drone dubbed by DJI as the tool to help surveyors “see the unseen”.
Mavic 3 Enterprise – or M3E – builds on the popularity of the Phantom 4 RTK by upgrading its components to give surveyors a commercial-grade drone with the very latest flight and camera technology but in a compact and easy-to-carry form.
Compared with the Phantom 4 RTK, here are the headline feature upgrades:
- Its flight time is significantly increased from 30 minutes to 45 minutes (42 minutes with RTK module attached).
- Its wide camera is upgraded from 1inch CMOS to 4/3 CMOS, and a 1/2 inch CMOS 7x-56x zoom tele camera is added.
- It is foldable, whereas the Phantom 4 RTK was unfoldable.
- Its transmission distance increases from 5km to 8km.
- Its wind resistance capability is improved from 10m/s to 12m/s, and its maximum flight speed increases from 13m/s to 15m/s.
- Unlike Phantom 4 RTK, M3E has several attachments including beacon and speaker – particularly useful for search and rescue missions.
Like the Phantom 4 RTK, M3E is also compatible with DJI Terra – the industry standard mapping software application. Creating digital versions of an environment is easy using Terra, which uses image data captured during a drone mission to create highly accurate and detailed 2D or 3D digital reconstructions of buildings, structures or landscapes. Once a surveying mission is completed, the upload, processing and output of the data requires just a few clicks.
Who Can DJI Drones Help?
Drones can help surveyors complete even the most complex surveying missions quickly, accurately and safely. Packed with technology and able to fly even in imperfect conditions, DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise sets a new standard for everyday surveying drones – the go-to-tool for fast, efficient and safe surveying from the air.
