The Mavic 2 Zoom was released in August 2018 (along with its counterpart, the Mavic 2 Pro), and just two months later, on October 29, 2018, the Mavic 2 Enterprise and Enterprise Dual burst on the scene. All of the recent versions offer improvements on the original Mavic, while having a variety of unique individual features which make them suited to different applications. Here we compare three models, the Mavic 2 Zoom, the Mavic 2 Enterprise and the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, to highlight some of these unique features, and identify which applications each of these three is best suited for. While the Mavic 2 Zoom is comparatively single function (optical camera), both Mavic 2 enterprise models have the capability of carrying other attachments along with a camera, namely, a spotlight, a beacon, or a speaker. More on that in a bit. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual has the additional feature of having both a visual camera and a thermal camera. The camera on the Mavic 2 Enterprise is essentially the same as that on the Mavic 2 Zoom, with all of its features and functions. The main difference here arises, as mentioned previously, in the other payload options: the speaker, the beacon, and the spotlight. It’s these options that make the enterprise models of the Mavic ideal for business applications such as utility inspections, search and rescue, first responders and law enforcement. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual carries a slightly less robust camera than the Mavic 2 Zoom and the Mavic 2 Enterprise, but has the added feature of a thermal camera. The visual camera in the Dual does not have zoom capabilities but instead houses a side-by-side 4K sensor to capture visible light and a FLIR Lepton thermal camera to capture thermal data. These thermal capabilities make the Dual a good choice for work in emergency services and for those in light industrial sectors.
The Enterprise Mavics feature GPS timestamping which records the time and date that the images and videos are taken for better data processing. Another benefit of the M2E is password protection which ensures secure access to the drone and onboard data storage. The speaker is capable of playing 10 pre-recorded messages on demand at 100 decibels, allowing the pilot to communicate with ground teams during emergency situations. The speaker attachment making communication with people on the ground a breeze. The beacon utilizes a bright flashing strobe visible three miles away, to comply with FAA Night Waiver standards for night inspections, allowing pilots to conduct missions in low-light conditions or at night with much greater safety. A dual spotlight with a brightness of 2,400 lumens aids operators in carrying out missions in dark or low-light areas. The spotlight is ideal for search and rescue missions, as well as inspection applications. The Mavic 2 series feature DJI’s newest and most powerful image transmission system. With OcuSync 2.0 the drone can transmit 1080P at up to 5 miles. OcuSync 2.0 is powerful enough to transmit video through solid walls. This powerful video transmission system makes the Mavic the preferred drone of choice to clear buildings for law enforcement purposes.
