ADU 01200: Drone Flight Time Comparison – Why the Phantom 4 Pro is Still the Best Option for Drone Mapping

On today’s show we do a flight time comparison between some popular drones like Phantom 4 Pro, Inspire 2, and Mavic Enterprise.

Our caller for today, Carl is considering the Phantom 4 Pro, Inspire 2, and Mavic Enterprise for drone mapping missions.  But he is not sure if these drones can give him a long enough flight time to conclude his job. And understandably, he is also worried about running out of battery mid-flight.

This is a great question that has not been asked before on Ask Drone U. 

To help Carl out, we do an in-depth flight time comparison between these popular DJI drones. 

Additionally, on today’s show, you will also learn:

How to restart a mission after changing batteries mid-flight

Are the drones intelligent enough to mitigate risk in case of low battery voltage?

Apps to help you operate seamlessly in the above scenarios…

Thanks for the great question, Carl. Fly Safe!
