DJI Zenmuse P1

Let’s talk payloads – Drone professional’s favourite photogrammetry tool, the DJI Zenmuse P1.

Did you know that P1 is DJI’s largest image sensor with the highest resolution? The Phantom 4 RTK – the closest competitor, has a 20MP sensor, which is 7.5 times smaller than the DJI Zemuse P1. There are a lot of exciting features to explore on P1, including its full-frame sensor, interchangeable lenses, the Smart Oblique Capture function and more. We hope this article will guide you to make better-informed decisions.

Drone Powerline Inspection: The Workflow, Advantages, and more

M300 Taking off

We present you this article owing to the fact that we live in a DIY Era and there is NO better alternative to powerline inspection than a drone powerline inspection! So, how would a typical drone-based powerline inspection looks like? Let’s find out.

Let’s Talk About DJI Drones for Surveying and Mapping

DJI Drones for Surveying and Mapping

Have you ever sighed at the thought of surveying a large parcel of land? In the past, that is usually where drones come into the picture. Drones are just perfect for surveying and mapping— they fly over large areas in minutes to hours, they take pictures or videos from different angles, they keep you from having to traverse the dangerous terrain.
As surveying drones become more and more common with each passing day, let’s ask the question: how important are drones in your surveying and mapping operation?

DJI Zenmuse L1; LiDAR Survey Made Easy

DJI Zenmuse L1 payload

For a multitude of reasons, DJI’s first Livox LiDAR payload — the Zenmuse L1, is gaining a lot of traction among drone professionals. First of all, the DJI Zenmuse L1 incorporates the powers of both laser and visible light; this payload can simultaneously capture both LiDAR and Photogrammetry data. L1 is well known for capturing ‘accuracy’ by integrating a Livox LiDAR module, a high-accuracy IMU, a survey-grade camera, and additionally, it comes with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal. Well, not just that, there is a lot more to explore on this unparalleled player in the Drone-based solutions!

Why You Should Consider Drone Powerline Inspections?

While integrating a new system into current workflows may seem like a headache right now, the benefits quickly make up the difference and then some more. For example, the traditional inspection methods are time-consuming, expensive, and out-of-date. Read more on the downsides of traditional powerline inspections here. In this article, we’ll be exploring the Drone Powerline Inspections – why drones are the superior choice.

Confessions of a Drone Professional: Why We Love the M300 RTK

Confession Drone Professional DJI M300 RTK

There is no doubt that DJI’s Matrice 300 RTK has set a new standard for the commercial drone industry. With its array of purposeful and powerful features combined with a robust build, you’d be hard-pressed to find better. However, this isn’t an article where we discuss the features of the M300 RTK — there are plenty of those already; in this article, we will be discussing why the pilots at FEDS-drone Powered Solutions love working with this powerful drone system.

The Future of Fire and Safety with Drones

Rosenbeaur Drone Firefighters

Firefighters have long braved hair-raising and dangerous situations, combating fires and saving lives. But, while this has been the norm for years— it no longer has to be with drones. The idea of rushing into unknown hazards and danger is what drones are here to change and improve fire and safety.

Emergency Response Drones: Saving Lives, Improving Response Times

In an urgent response situation, the team and authorities are working against the clock. Traveling to the incident site, establishing situational awareness, and requesting additional resources all take time- precious time that can save lives. While traditional teams have to deal with road conditions, distance, and longer deployment times, drones do not. Emergency Response Drones are life savers. Emergency response teams are now leveraging drones to save lives, improve response times and optimize resource allocation.

Drone Solar Inspections with DJI M300 RTK

Today’s solar panels are built to last decades- however, longevity and production efficiency are not interlinked. Using three DJI M300 RTKs, each equipped with the Zenmuse H20T, the FEDS Team collected data at the rate of 2,200 panels per day. With the 55min flight time and improved accuracy thanks to RTK, we collected data of the entire solar farm in just five days. Let’s explore on improving operations with Drone Solar Inspections powered by DJI M300 RTK.

Here’s everything you need to know about DJI M300 RTK new firmware update
