Overview


DJI is undoubtedly the market leader in the drone industry, both in the consumer and enterprise sectors.


Their flagship enterprise model, the M300, has been updated and DJI has introduced the M350 to the market, but what's the difference?


In this post, we will look at comparisons between the DJI M300 vs DJI M350, what the difference is, and the use cases.



DJI M300 vs M350


The DJI M300 was the go-to platform for enterprise drone operations with specifications including interchangeable payloads, 360-degree vision sensing and weatherproofing.


It was only a matter of time before DJI decided to upgrade their most popular large platform, and earlier this year they released the DJI M350.


To look at there is not much difference in its physical form, but when it comes to specifications there are some subtle changes.


Below we will run through some specifications of the drone itself and then look at the payloads compatible with both units.

DJI M300 / M350 Use Cases


While the M300 does have a high IP rating (45), the M350 has an upgraded IP rating (55) making it more suitable for harsher conditions which means you can still operate when other drones are unable to.


Both the M300 and M350 are ideally suited to enterprise markets and perform very well in larger roles where longevity and resilience are required.


Below we have listed the ideal use cases for the M300 and M350 platforms.
