ADU 01284: Is Phantom 4 v2 still the go-to drone for all things concerning mapping?

Today’s episode is brought to you by PROPS programs. Props is Drone U’s exclusive offering to give organizations the ability to distribute UAV training to pilots effectively and efficiently. PROPS allows the leader of a drone program, to assign the appropriate courses according to your program’s needs and timeframes. And perhaps more importantly, it allows you as the program leader to monitor the progress of each pilot within one convenient platform. Our PROPS program has a special course on a host of domains including mapping, public safety and our exclusive Don’t Crash courses.

On Today’s show we discuss if the Phantom 4 V2 drone is still the go-to drone for mapping projects or do pilots have the option of using the Mavic line of drones for conducting mapping projects? Our question for today is from first time caller, Brenden, who would like to know if the Phantom 4 V2 is a viable drone that pilots can use for mapping projects. Thanks for asking, Brenden !!

We start off our response by mentioning the features of the Phantom 4 and why we consider still to be the best drone for conducting mapping missions. We also look into features offered by the Mavic and areas that DJI can explore to further enhance the use of the Mavic in mapping projects. We also discuss all about the mapping drones available in the market today and how companies like DJI are positioning their drones for the industry. We also talk about upcoming courses covering newer mapping drones that Drone U intends to launch in the coming year. If you would like to know more about mapping visit our Mapping Software page that provides all the details about mapping and mapping software.
