What can drones do for you and your business needs?  

DJI is the leading company in drone technology. Established in 2006 in Shenzhen, China, DJI has inventive, sleekish designs and superior manufacturing. The flexibility and mobility offered by DJI drones makes it the most recommended option among industries professionals. 

DJI unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are equipped with the latest technology, including high-quality cameras, advanced features, and user-friendly controls, making them a top choice for aerial photography, videography, surveying, mapping, and more. 

But the benefits of DJI drones go beyond just their impressive features. These cutting-edge UAVs collect data for drone mapping, inspect cell towers with precision, and also capture breathtaking fly-through videos. 

The versatility offered by DJI drones has made them a go-to solution for nearly every industry and vertical you can imagine. 

Construction drones 

Construction drones, also known as surveying drones, are used in construction and engineering projects. These drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras, LiDAR sensors, and other tools that help in capturing images, videos, and data. These payloads can be used for various tasks such as site inspection, surveying, and mapping. 

Use of Drones in Construction 

Construction drones can be used in a variety of applications such as building inspections, volume calculation, topographical mapping, and progress monitoring. 

Drones can help in reducing the time and costs associated with traditional manual inspection methods, increase safety, and provide more accurate results. 

Drones in construction are typically used for: 

  • Keeping projects on schedule 

  • Auditing Material Deliveries with Volumetric Measurement 

  • Measuring Cut-Fill Efficiencies 

  • Remote Monitoring Site Safety 

  • Auditing Record of Installation (volumetrically measuring the concrete laid on a given day) 

  • Logistics, Planning, and Project engineering by using PointClouds layered over VDC models to ensure the accuracy of installation. 

Types of Construction Drones 

Construction drones typically fall into two categories: those with strong mapping capabilities and those with zoom capabilities for focusing on specific areas. Drones with zoom capabilities often have limited mapping options due to the style of the shutter in the camera. 

Best DJI Drones for Construction 

Among DJI’s offerings, the Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic 3 Enterprise, and M30T are considered the best drones for construction. 

DJI offers several drones that are ideal for construction, including the Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic 3 Enterprise, and M30T. 

The Phantom 4 Pro excels in data collection and mapping, making it a valuable tool in construction. 

The Mavic 3 Enterprise is ideal for aerial videography and mapping, making it useful in construction projects. 

Finally, the M30T boasts advanced mapping capabilities, along with the ability to inspect with zoom and thermal imaging, making it a versatile choice for construction professionals. 

However, with advancements in drone technology, and shifts in the construction drone market, the older models are being phased out. 

For instance, the Phantom 4 Pro, once a popular choice for construction, is now being replaced by the Mavic 3 Enterprise for high-quality mapping drones. 

Likewise, the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual Advanced, previously a favorite for inspections, is being succeeded by the DJI Matrice 30T as the new construction powerhouse.
