Mavic 2 Enterprise Review Of New Features

Mavic 2 Enterprise Accessories

The Mavic 2 Enterprise features an extended port on top of the quadcopter to mount the M2E dual spotlight, loudspeaker and beacon.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Spotlight

This new DJI M2E has a strong dual spotlight with a brightness of 2,400 lumens to assist operators in carrying out missions in dark or low light areas. The spotlight is ideal for search and rescue as well as inspection applications.

This M2E dual spotlight assists greatly in the search for missing persons in low light or night time searches.  It will also allow for proper visual inspections, where structures have low light or in bad lighting conditions.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Speaker 

The M2E has a loudspeaker with a maximum projection of 100 decibels 3.2 feet (1 meter) distance and lets pilots play up to 10 custom voice recordings on demand, providing a communications channel to nearby individuals, which can be critical during lifesaving emergency operations.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Beacon 

Designed with U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) night waiver standards in mind, the M2E Beacon features a bright flashing strobe, which is visible 3 miles (4 km) away.

This helps pilots carry out missions in low light conditions or in the night much more safely. It provides additional airspace awareness for operators of other drones nearby and traditional aircraft.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Local Data Mode

With 24 GB of on-board data storage with password protection, a new GPS time stamping feature and Local Data Mode feature, the M2E includes enhanced data security and protection for sensitive data such as photos, videos and flight logs.

Mavic 2 Enterprise New AirSense Technology

Every M2E includes DJI’s AirSense technology for improved pilot situational awareness. DJI AirSense enhances airspace safety by giving you instant realtime positioning alerts on nearby manned aircraft.

AirSense uses an integrated receiver to automatically alert drone pilots of ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters, providing realtime positioning alerts through the DJI Pilot mobile app.

This provides an extra level of safety for professional drone operators, who fly in congested airspace or near complicated operations, such as wildfire suppression, disaster recovery and infrastructure monitoring.

DJI AirSense technology is a key system to help ensure drones remain a safe addition to the skies.

Mavic 2 Enterprise Flight Time

DJI’s FOC propulsion motors and efficient propellers enhance the M2E flight time, delivering a flight of up to 31 minutes and a top speed of 45 mph (72 km/h).  This is the same as the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom.

Now, with the accessories such as the M2E spotlight, loudspeaker or beacon mounted, the hovering time changes to the following;

27 min (with beacon turned on)
28 min (with beacon turned off)
22 min (with spotlight turned on)
26 min (with spotlight turned off)
25 min (with speaker turned on)
26 min (with speaker turned off)

Mavic 2 Enterprise Video And Data Transmission Systems

The Mavic 2 Pro, Zoom and also Enterprise use Ocusync 2.0 which is DJI’s latest video and data transmission system. It provides a more stable connection between the drone and its remote operator.

The Ocusync 2.0 system also features stronger interference resistance and auto-switching capabilities, which support both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands with the capability to use different frequencies for uplink and downlink data streams.
