Now no matter how heavy rains, snow or winds are gushing around, Matrice 30 is the new drone to go out for. Seriously, this DJI enterprise drone can stand against any extreme weather condition is going to solve a big commercial issue that many drones might fail at. So we know that DJI is very popular and is known as a torchbearer for drone fans globally for best aerial cinematic experience, video and photography. On the contrary, Matrice 30 is there for commercial uses that can be used for surveying, inspection and reaching everywhere during emergencies.
The Matrice 30 is a flagship enterprise drone that can fly just fine in -20-50 degrees Celsius. It’s very well manufactured so that it never gets hindered during heavy rains or dust storms. So technically obstacles bite dust against this giant DJI masterpiece. It’s going to be the leading commercial drone in DJI’s fleet arsenal.
Matric 30 Firmware & Features
Matrice 30 a top-tier high-tech drone that comes with the dream commercial features and specs. For instance, DJI has used FlightHub 2 software on Matrice 30 which comes with the latest firmware to manage their fleet which is very high end, a high-tech remote controller and docking station that helps to execute programmed workflow.
On the features scale the drone peers will rate this DJI offering very high, it’s strong wind and water resistance and also high temperature resistance beside all other features that we normally find high quality DJI drones.
Like the commercial drones that were released before it, the Matrice 30 has six-way sensors to avoid obstacles, 15 m/s wind resistance, a max speed of 23 m/s and can reach a 7,000-meter (23,000-foot) service ceiling with high altitude propellers.
Camera – DJI Matrice 30 has a high end imaging system that uses a 12-MP wide-angle camera and a 48-megapixel 1/2″ CMOS sensor that can zoom the object about 16x times optically and 200x digitally.
Rangefinding – DJI has laser rangefinder that can easily coordinate from a distance of 1,200 meters which is quite a distance. So during times of floods or inspections this drone is a thing.
However Matrice 30 T has therma camera for great imagery and shoots in 640×512 resolution. It’s a great accessory that can be used on Matrice 30 as well.
The previous commercial drones by DJI had an issue we could not fit them and carry, one such drone is DJI 300 RTK, while the Matrice 30 commands higher IP55 rating and its flexible design lets it fit in small bags as well so it gets the job done in a better way than its peers.
Matrice 300 RTK has its own superior features. For instance it gives more flight time as compared to Matrice 30 which gives us 40+ minutes flight time while 300 RTK goes beyond 50 minutes and 55 minutes at its best.
Matrice 30 RC
DJI Matrice 30 Remote Controller Plus has an IP54 rating. It comes with a 7-inch HD screen which is a huge plus. On the downside, RC Plus has slightly less water resistance as compared to the aircraft. Obviously it’s not necessary that RC should be as water or temperature resistant as the aircraft. So it’s just fine.
Another very important spec is Matrice 30’s docking station which can perform fully automated no matter if it’s a takeoff, landing or charging. So it can be placed anywhere around without physical presence and also it charges 100% in just 25 minutes. This makes it very usable for inspecting Californian wildfires or just any other natural disaster.
Matrice 30 Aircraft & Kit
DJI Matrice 30 comes in the price range of $10K however with the thermal imaging camera it can cost around $14,000. Other accessories apart from the aircraft include RC Plus, two batteries, a battery station and of course a case. However, its dock is not available at this point because of its extensive testing. DJI flagship website and some other platforms offering this drone. The Dock will be available soon after a month more or less.
DJI 30 Series drones are totally a different ball game as compared to their other drones. They are way ahead of their time in technicalities and performance. The DJI Matrice 30 is one of a kind drone, we cannot compare it with DJI Mini 3 Pro or Mavic 3 Pro due to its different manufacturing. Overall DJI 30 series is probably going to solve many issues and we will see their advancement in the near future.
