DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series - Key Updates

New features have been added for the Mavic 3 Enterprise Series on the following firmware update:

Date: March 2, 2023
Aircraft Firmware: v06.01.06.06
Remote Controller Firmware: v02.00.04.07
DJI Pilot 2 App: v6.1.1.1
DJI Assistant 2: v2.1.7

New Point of Interest (POI) Flight Mode

Point of Interest (POI) allows you to orbit a point of interest and collect comprehensive data with a 360-degree view of the target.





This has been one of the most requested features by first responders and public safety agencies who want to easily add an orbit to their accident reconstruction data capture or orbit a scene. Vertical structures or areas can also be captured utilising this tool.

The suggested workflow for POI on the Mavic 3E Series is:

  1. Fly directly over the target and drop a Pin at the drone’s location.
  2. Fly back a bit, so you can look at the Pin, and activate POI mode.
  3. There is an option to adjust the altitude/gimbal pitch/speed. You can also lock your current flight speed by pressing the C1 on the back of the remote controller.
  4. The drone will now automatically maintain a consistent radius as it orbits the target. If you want to collect data, turn on the timed photo capture.

Lower Altitude Limit in Real-Time Terrain Follow

The minimum elevation ceiling in Real-Time Terrain Follow has been reduced from 80m to 30m, allowing the drone to fly much closer to the surface and capture higher-resolution data of the target area.

New Camera Angle Settings For Mission Planning

This update enables operators to set the direction and pitch/angle of the camera gimbal while planning autonomous flight missions.

This capability can prove especially valuable for construction engineering scenarios, and during solar inspections where the camera needs to be perpendicular (or at a certain angle) to the PV panels.

Enhanced Zoom on Mavic 3 Multispectral

The Mavic 3 Multispectral now benefits from added support for 8x digital zoom for its RGB camera.



New Adjustable Infrared Parameter Function For Mavic 3T

The update provides the ability to adjust the infrared parameter on the Mavic 3T.



This means you can now fix the distance between the drone and its target, and also set the reflectivity of the target, thus enabling the Mavic 3T to calculate temperature measurements with more accuracy.

  • Intelligent Flight Battery: v02.00.20.49
  • DJI Assistant 2 (Enterprise Series): v2.1.7

Smart Low-Light Photo as a Waypoint Action

This new feature, available exclusively with the DJI M30, enables the drone’s camera and onboard software to produce bright photos, even in low-light conditions.



With the M30’s latest firmware update, Smart Low-Light Photo can be found as a selectable action during Waypoints missions.

Zenmuse L1 Calibration Prompts During Manual Flights

This new update provides helpful reminders to calibrate the DJI Zenmuse L1 sensor via prompts to the Manual flight interface in the DJI Pilot 2 app.



IMU calibration is a prerequisite for LiDAR accuracy - and the Zenmuse L1 needs to be calibrated before, during (every 100s of the flight mission), and after the data collection to produce optimal results.

While calibration flights are automatically inserted into the flight route in pre-programmed missions, Manual flight mode requires operators to click on the calibration button ensuring there are no obstacles in the 30m range ahead of the drone.

New Features Available For DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series, M30/30T, and M300 RTK

While there are some features exclusive to each drone, there are also some which can be used across all of the platforms.

Use Terrain Follow With Mission Modes

Operators can now leverage the Terrain Follow feature concurrently with Oblique and Linear flight planning modes.

Terrain Follow can also be used in conjunction with Smart Oblique Capture while using the M300 RTK with the P1 sensor.



This capability is huge in terms of both efficiency and convenience because it improves the flexibility of mission planning modes, allowing them to also be used over areas with variations in terrain.

These improvements are most incremental for DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise series users because their drone’s turbo-charged terrain awareness feature, aka Real-Time Terrain Follow, is now compatible with Smart Oblique Capture as well. Meaning, instead of getting just top-down shots of the target, you can now easily make 3D models of even those areas with great variations in elevation.

If utilising a DSM for terrain follow you can import your own or simply download the area from the internet within the Pilot 2 app.

The table below explains the Terrain Follow feature compatibility with various Mission Modes:

2D Mapping Smart Oblique Oblique Linear
M3E DSM Following
M3E Real-Time Terrain Following X
M3T DSM Following X
M3T Real-Time Terrain Following X X
M30 DSM Following X
M300 RTK DSM Following
(Only with P1)


New Automatic Mission Menu On Manual Flight Screen

When flying manually, you will find a new button that opens the Automatic Mission Menu where you can select flight routes or create new ones.

Previously, if you were in the middle of a flight, the only way for you to access Mission Planning was to exit the flight screen and return to the Pilot 2 home screen first.

This new Mission Planning button is a handy addition to the Manual mode that lets you select the mission you want to execute, or even create a new one right from where you are.



Improved support for Offline Maps in Pilot 2

Previously, you could download street maps for offline use only when the RC was connected to the Internet.

Now, you have the option to use Maptiler’s website to download a variety of offline maps on your computer, or format your own data to the mbtiles format and import it to the Pilot 2 app on the RC.



When you have internet, the available satellite data works fine most of the time, but if imagery is out of date (i.e. mining, construction) it is nice to have an updated base map, or the ability to add key information layers (search and rescue).

Also, some users for security purposes don't want to connect to the internet or a user may be going to a remote area without internet so this option provides the ability to have satellite map data completely offline.

Cross-compatible Polygon to Mapping Mode For Team Missions

Users of FlightHub 2 can now respond swiftly to developing situations using the new Polygon to Mapping Mission. The feature allows teams to efficiently synchronise polygons across platforms for quick mapping.



For instance, during an SAR mission, the commander can use their computer to draw a polygon over an area of interest and assign it to a pilot in the field. The drone operator receives the polygon on their remote controller.

When they select the polygon, they will be presented with a button that, when pressed, will direct the drone to automatically map the area designated to that polygon.

New Safe Takeoff Altitude Option

Safety is an essential part of our design philosophy; we continually add features to help improve it. This firmware update brings you the ability to set an altitude limit for takeoffs and improve route safety during mapping tasks.

Password protection for Local Data Mode

You now have the option to set a password to turn Local Data Mode on and off. This will prevent the mode from accidentally being switched off because of inadvertent key toggles. After setting a password, you can only change the Network Security Mode or adjust the function settings after entering the password.

Other Upgrades

There are several other UI improvements and system upgrades that have been introduced to the Mavic 3 Enterprise Series, M30/30T, and M300 RTK drone platforms, including optimisation of the firmware update prompt in the DJI Pilot 2 app and the addition of the ability to export logs by different modules.
