DJI Dock 2 Pricing and Specs for USA & Canada

DJI Dock 2 Pricing and Specs for USA & Canada

In the rapidly evolving world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), DJI has been a frontrunner, consistently pushing the boundaries of drone technology. Here is what we know about the impending release of the Dock 2 to the North American market.

Note: This information was sourced from external industry information and is not an official information release from DJI. Product details and pricing are subject to change upon the official launch.

The DJI Dock 2 is expected to be released in North America around April or May of 2024, the Dock 2 is not just a drone; it's a comprehensive "drone in a box" solution, aimed at revolutionizing industries like public safety, energy/inspection, and AEC/surveying.

DJI Dock 2 Pricing is expected to be around $10,000 USD / $14,000 CAD which is significantly more affordable than the original DJI dock which is about $30,000 USD. 

 

DJI Dock 2 vs. Dock 1: The specifications

DJi Dock 2

The DJI Dock 2 is the second generation of its predecessor, the Dock 1, which featured the Matrice 30 series aircraft. Let's delve into the differences and improvements that the Dock 2 brings to the table:

Feature Dock 2 Dock 1 Insights
Size 570 x 583 x 465 mm 800 x 885 x 1065 mm More compact, easier to setup and deploy
Weight 24 kg 105 kg Significantly lighter, enhancing portability. Can be setup by 2 people.
Max Range 10 km 7 km Extended operational range
Max Flight Time 50 min 40 min Longer duration for complex missions

Key advantages of the Dock 2

  • Faster and easier to setup due to its smaller and lighter weight
  • Longer flight range with its improved transmission system and flight time
  • Photogrammetry Mapping capability added with the mechanical shutter version (M3D)

 

The M3 Series Drones: M3D vs. M3TD vs. M30TD

Shooting Interval 0.7s Non-Mechanical Non-Mechanical

 

The Dock 2 3D version is ideal for people who need frequent updated maps of construction sites, mine sites, etc. with its mechanical shutter.

the Dock 2 3TD might be ideal for security or inspection applications with its thermal camera. 

Why DJI Dock 2 Stands Out

The Dock 2 isn't just an upgrade in terms of size and weight; it's a leap forward in UAV technology. Here's why:

  1. Rapid Deployment: With a 45-second takeoff time, the Dock 2 is built for quick response, crucial for public safety and inspection tasks.
  2. Extended Range and Flight Time: The increased range (10 km) and flight time (50 min) mean longer missions and fewer interruptions.
  3. High Accuracy Mapping: This feature is vital for surveying and construction, ensuring precise data collection.
  4. Cost-Effectiveness: Lower operational costs make it an attractive option for various industries.
  5. Charging Efficiency: The 35-minute charging time (from 20% to 90%) minimizes downtime between flights.

The Emergence of Drone-in-a-Box Technology

The concept of "drone in a box" marks a significant shift from traditional UAVs. These systems deploy autonomously from a box that doubles as a landing pad and charging base. After completing their pre-programmed tasks, they return to their base for charging and data upload. This autonomy and self-sufficiency make them ideal for continuous, unattended operations.Conclusion

The DJI Dock 2, along with the M3 series drones, represents a significant step forward in the UAV industry. Its enhanced features, combined with the efficiency of the "drone in a box" concept, pave the way for more autonomous, efficient, and cost-effective drone operations across various sectors. As we approach its release, the anticipation for the Dock 2 underscores the growing importance and potential of advanced UAV technology in our world.
