In a nutshell, aerial drones come in a variety of price ranges, from cheap stocking stuffers to serious budget busters. DJI’s latest flagship fits perfectly into the latter category, despite being compact enough to fit in a backpack.

The DJI Matrice 30 drone is a professional piece of kit through and through. The standard M30 features a 48-megapixel 1/2″ CMOS sensor camera with 5x-16x optical zoom, a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and support for 8K photo 4K/30FPS video resolution. There is also a laser rangefinder that provides accurate coordinates of objects to 1,200 meters away The M30T variant adds a radiometric thermal camera.

IP55 protection allows the M30 to operate in harsh environments including high winds, heavy rain, high altitudes and extreme temperatures from -20C to 50C. Six-way obstacle avoidance sensors help reduce crashes, while the emergency landing mode with three propellers can bring the unit down safely even if one engine fails completely.

Battery life is estimated at 41 minutes of flight time. It also supports battery hot swapping and the smart charging case allows charging from 20 percent to 90 percent in just half an hour. The new DJI RC Plus remote, meanwhile, has a 7-inch HD display and is IP54 certified against dust and water splashes.

Perhaps the most impressive part is the DJI Dock. This autonomous take-off, landing and loading station enables fully automatic, programmed flights. The dock is IP55 rated and the core components are IP67 rated, allowing for continuous use with minimal maintenance. It even features an integrated weather station, wide-angle surveillance cameras, built-in antennas, a port for an external 4G dongle, and an internal battery in case the dock loses power.

The DJI M30 price starts at $9,999, and the drone can be purchased from the DJI online store and through corporate dealers. The DJI Dock is being tested with select users and will launch sometime in Q4 2022.
