The DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise and the DJI Phantom 4 RTK are both high-end drones that are designed for surveying, inspection, and mapping. However, there are some key differences between the two drones and generational improvements to the Mavic 3 Enterprise.
Sensor and Image Quality
One of the most crucial factors to consider when choosing a drone is the sensor and image quality. The DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise has a 4/3-inch CMOS sensor with a 20MP resolution, while the DJI Phantom 4 RTK has a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 20MP resolution. The Mavic 3 Enterprise's sensor is slightly larger, which gives it a slight advantage in terms of image quality. However, both sensors can produce high quality images and videos.
Another key factor to consider is flight time. The DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise has a flight time of up to 45 minutes, while the DJI Phantom 4 RTK has a flight time of up to 30 minutes. The Mavic 3 Enterprise's longer flight time gives it an advantage to cover larger areas of landing during a single mission.
Both drones have obstacle avoidance sensors, but the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise has a more advanced system. The Mavic 3 Enterprise has a total of 16 obstacle avoidance sensors, while the Phantom 4 RTK has 5 obstacle avoidance sensors. The Mavic 3 Enterprise's system is more comprehensive and can help to avoid obstacles in more situations.
With a number of years between the two drones, DJI has improved its dynamic obstacle avoidance along with its smart flight modes. Mavic 3 Enterprise includes newer modes, such as Terrain Follow, improved POI, 8x digital zoom, and supports encryption in Network Security Mode via the Pilot 2 app.
Overall, the Mavic 3 Enterprise is a nice upgrade over the Phantom 4 RTK, boasting an improved camera system, more advanced obstacle avoidance system, increase flight time, an improved mission planning experience. Mavic 3 Enterprise's RTK module can also be removed and replaced with a loudspeaker, making it useful for other jobs.
