DJI has today launched a new Local Data Mode that stops internet traffic to and from its DJI Pilot app, in order to provide enhanced data privacy assurances for sensitive government and enterprise customers. The release comes after the US Government announced it would consider stopping the use of DJI drones due to data concerns.
With the increase in drones being used as a key surveying tool, many questions are being asked about the accuracy of their GPS positioning from the sky. 3D mapping can be easily achieved with the use of a basic GPS enabled drone and processing software. However, for times when pinpoint accuracy is required, it is advised to utilise an RTK enabled aircraft and/or additional ground control points. There are a number of tools available to increase the accuracy of your survey data from the sky, one of which being Propeller AeroPoints.
The COPTRZ team recently put the DJI Zenmuse Z30 through it’s paces at our DJI M210 Demo Day and we were mightily impressed with how it performed. Despite the number of payloads that the team deponstrated during the day, the Zenmuse Z30 was undoubtedly the crowd favourite due to it’s unrivalled zoom capabilities. It’s clear to see that this will become a key tool for many commercial drone users, particularly those who conduct industrial inspections. Read our guide to the DJI Zenmuse Z30 below and if you have any additional questions just give the COPTRZ team a call on 0330 111 7177 or email email@example.com
As a follow-up to our hugely successful M210 demo day in Barnsley last month, COPTRZ are hitting the road again to showcase the M210 to a live audience in Hook, Hampshire on 6th October 2017.
Attendees at the free event will be able to get up close with the Matrice 200 series and the range of DJI Zenmuse cameras including the Zenmuse Z30. The COPTRZ team will be hosting a number of flight demonstrations including staged scenarios that the kit would be used in.

There are three aircraft in the series; the M200, M210 and M210 RTK, each offering multiple levels of functionality for commercial drone users.
