Here at UASys, your trusted provider of DJI products in Australia, we’re thrilled to share our hands-on experience with one of the game changers in the drone world – the DJI Matrice 300 (M300). Our firsthand encounters with the M300 have given us unique insights into its capabilities, flexibility, and resilience. The M300 was previously the flagship (now the Matrice 350), and forms heavy hitting backbone of many businesses.
Unparalleled Flight Performance
Our flight sessions with the M300 have delivered up to 55 minutes of airtime. It’s genuinely astounding to see such endurance in action, particularly during our extensive operations, including LiDAR missions and asset inspections. That and the ability to hot swap batteries means that we don’t have to waste time turning the M300 on and off, gaining the most efficiency from time on site.
Sensing and Imaging at its Best
In our experience, the M300’s six-directional sensing and positioning systems have set a benchmark for environmental awareness and obstacle avoidance. The ability to sense on all directions ensures that this expensive piece of kit doesn’t fall out of the sky in case you’re doing an automatic survey mission and forgot to deconflict with a rather tall tree.
Payload Flexibility: A Game Changer
One of the standout attributes of the M300 is its ability to accommodate various payloads. The flagship drone works directly with DJI flagship sensors such as the Zenmuse L1, Zenmuse P1, Zenmuse H20, Zenmuse H20T, Zenmuse H20N, and other sensors with a compatible gimbal. This means it’s ready for any mission you throw at it. One of the main reasons many businesses purchase the M300 is the fact that these sensors are a league above anything on the Mavic 3 Enterprise or Thermal, giving huge amounts of detail and resolution, not to mention is the only way to get a decent LiDAR scan which you can read more about in this guide.
Resilience in the Face of Adversity
We’ve put the M300’s IP45 rating to the test in some challenging weather rain conditions out west NSW when the floods were occurring, and it didn’t miss a beat. Whether in rain or snow, this drone’s robust construction and resilience to elements have been remarkable, enabling us to perform tasks without weather constraints.
Harnessing Technology for Complex Missions
The M300’s technological capabilities have opened up new possibilities as well. The live mission recording allows you to recreate the exact same flight path that you’ve done before, all the way down to exactly where and what zoom level the photos were taken, making it incredibly easy to capture progression shots. The pinpoint and smart track features are also incredible useful for first responders with the ability to quickly mark a point in the camera field of view, and send those exact coordinates back to online platforms, whereas the smart track will identify and follow moving objects.
Built-in Redundancy Systems: Safety First
With dual battery redundancy in its propulsion system and triple redundancy in the flight control system, the M300 has delivered robust and secure performance throughout our flights. It’s clear that the emphasis on safety and reliability is inherent in the M300’s design and functionality, as it normally is prevalent in all DJI drones.
In our experience, the DJI Matrice 300 isn’t just a drone – it’s an innovative tool that elevates the potential of aerial data capture. Its powerful performance, flexibility, resilience, and focus on safety make it a valuable asset in any business.
