There’s no one perfect drone for all commercial applications. Selecting the right one requires that you consider the type of data you want to collect, the size of your area of interest, and the environment in which you'll be flying.
Will you be collecting photos or multiple sensing data types at once?
The M200 V2 is well-suited to various commercial applications. For one, it has an enclosed exterior, rated IP44, which blocks out rain, sleet, and other elements. It also offers superior flight stability, even in windy conditions. The M200 V2's dual-battery system heats batteries automatically when deployed in low temperatures.
DJI’s M210 RTK V2 features onboard power and built-in RTK modules that are compatible with D-RTK 2 Mobile Stations. This enables the drone to record precise geospatial location data as it collects data from a given sensor payload. For those pilots needing just onboard power, the M210 V2 is also available without the RTK module.
Made in the United States, the BirdsEyeView FireFLY6 Pro is a fixed-wing VTOL drone. That means you can take off and land from a 10 ft. x 10 ft. area but cover 600 acres in a single deployment. This reduces wear and the risk of a crash.
The BFD 1400-SE8 is an extra-large drone featuring a high payload capacity and plentiful battery stowage. It can fly up to 12kgs and still remain under 25kg. The SE8 is also flight computer-agnostic. So, you can customize your flight controller, telemetry modem, and off-board computer--including DJI’s flight control systems.
The Matrice 600 Pro is built big for heavy payloads and tough to withstand harsh industrial environments. Its arms and antennas are preinstalled, making setup a breeze. The airframe features DJI's A3 Pro flight controller, Lightbridge 2 HD transmission system, and intelligent batteries. Our flight team has deployed this absolute unit to move anything from hyperspectral cameras to refrigerators.
