Why Fly the M3E?

DJI is a leader in drone and aerial imaging technology. The M3E is their newest, lower-cost, enterprise offering since the P4RTK in 2018 that’s highly suitable for precision site mapping in the civil construction, aggregates, mining, and waste management industries.

If you’re looking to implement a drone surveying program for your earthworks operations—or expand an existing one—with a user-friendly, affordable investment, the M3E and Propeller PPK are a great fit.

Benefits of Propeller PPK With M3E

Get the most for your money
As a survey-quality drone, M3E enables you to take advantage of the speed and accuracy that come with drone surveying, at a competitive price.

Better in low light
The camera sensor has larger pixels, so it can take higher quality images in lower light conditions. This means customers can fly later or earlier in the day and still obtain survey-grade images.
faster batter charge
Faster battery charging
Mavic 3 Enterprise has a 100 watt, fast charging setup which allows you to charge its batteries from 0 to 80% in 40 minutes allowing for a 25- to 30-minute flight time.
Survey-quality imaging
The M3E combines a 4/3 inch, 20 MP sensor and wide-angle lens with a 12.3mm focal length to deliver clear, consistent imaging every time you fly. The M3E has a mechanical shutter with a 0.7 second shot interval, meaning it can take almost four times as many photos in the same period of time as some other drones, meaning that you can map your worksite in a shorter period of time.
Professional controls
The state-of-the-art remote controller, which incorporates the DJI Pilot 2 flight planning app, is larger and has a brighter screen making it easier to use, especially on sunny days.
Improved collision avoidance
The M3E’s “omni direction positioning system” provides six crash sensors, (compared to three on the P4RTK), making the possibility of a collision less likely. You can also manually adjust the distance as needed.
Transform the way you survey worksites
Propeller PPK and the M3E reduce time spent in the field, deliver pinpoint accuracy, and improve your site surveys with each flight.
