The maximum 41 minute flight time means the M30 doesn’t have quite the endurance of DJI’s longest-lasting drones but DJI’s taking advantage of its size in another way it’s finally revealed its own robotic drone in a box solution for ultimately autonomous missions one small enough to work on the back of a pickup truck. The DJI dock has its own built-in weather station surveillance cameras antennas 25-minute automatic fast battery charging and can support drone missions up to 7 kilometers away though do note the fine print there the DJI dock must be used in accordance with applicable laws and regulations and its advanced functions cannot yet be used in jurisdictions where a human pilot must stay within the drone’s line of sight or maintain physical control of the drone by holding a controller. One of those jurisdictions is the USA though the FAA has been taking baby steps toward letting automated drones in box missions precede on a case by case or agency basis. Most prominently American robotics got greenlit for some with minimal human involvement last January. The dock does need reliable power and internet access through DJI says there’s an internal battery for power failures and it can support a 4G dongle. There are also six-way obstacle avoidance sensors and the three propeller emergency landing attribute of the M300 RTK makes its way here too.
