DJI Dock 2 FAQ

1. What are the major updates of DJI Dock 2 compared to
a. Smaller footprint and lighter weight: 34kg; 0.34m^2 Covered area; easier to transport and
b. Improved coverage and efficiency: 50min max. flight time and 10 km max. operation range.
c. Surveying capability: M3D integrates a 20MP surveying camera (same as M3E camera) that
opens up new opportunities in construction site management, mining and so on.
d. More cost-effective: lower hardware cost and deployment/maintenance service cost.

2. Which aircrafts are compatible with DOCK 2?
DJI Matrice 3 dock version, DJI Matrice 3 thermal dock version. They have different cameras shown
in below table. M3D can be used for high-precision surveying and mapping missions, while M3TD
can be used for public safety operations/inspections.

WIDE •1/1.32" CMOS,48MP •4/3" CMOS,20MP, mechanical shutter
TELE •1/2" CMOS,12MP •1/2" CMOS,12MP
56x hybrid zoom 56x hybrid zoom

THERMAL •640×512@30fps NA
3. What software/SDK/API does DJI DOCK 2 support?
DJI DOCK 2 can work with DJI FlightHub 2 platform. Similar to DJI Dock 1, DJI DOCK 2 also supports
Cloud API that can allow third-party developers to build cloud platforms to operate/manage DJI
The M3D/M3TD aircraft is equipped with E-Port that can allow third-party payloads to be mounted
on the aircraft.
4. What application scenarios are DOCK 2 suitable for?
Thanks to the 20MP wide camera on M3D (same as M3E camera), it can provide high-precision
surveying and mapping capability. DJI DOCK 2 can be applied for use cases such as construction
site progress monitoring, earthwork measurements, earthquake/landslide monitoring, and more.
Equipped with both the thermal and the RGB camera, the DJI DOCK 2 with M3TD can be used for
security patrol, emergency response, automated asset inspections and so on.

5. What's the minimum interval between two operations of DJI
The minimum interval between two flights is 32 min (aircraft battery is charged from 20% to 90%)
6. Does DOCK 2 support real-time terrain follow, smart oblique
and EV adjustment, focus, ISO, etc.?
Smart oblique is supported. Other functions are not supported at the moment.
