Industry Leading Products

Regardless of the task at hand, Cloud City Drones provides a complete lineup of the highest rated industry tools to help get the job done.

Matrice 300 RTK

The Matrice 300 RTK is DJI’s latest commercial drone platform that takes inspiration from modern aviation systems. Offering up to 55 minutes of flight time, advanced AI capabilities, 6 Directional Sensing & Positioning, and more, the M300 RTK sets a whole new standard by combining intelligence with high-performance and unrivaled reliability.

Mavic 2 Enterprise

Designed to empower a new generation of workers, the Mavic 2 Enterprise is the ultimate expression of a tool that delivers beyond expectation to meet current workplace challenges and future demands.

Phantom 4 RTK

A new RTK module is integrated directly into the Phantom 4 RTK, providing real-time, centimeter-level positioning data for improved absolute accuracy on image metadata. In addition to optimized flight safety and precise data collection, the Phantom 4 RTK stores satellite observation data to be used for Post Processed Kinematics (PPK), which can be conducted using DJI Cloud PPK Service*.

EVO II DUAL

Resolutions up to 640x512 enable EVO II Dual pilots to capture subjects with great detail from up to 146 meters - 4x farther than any aircraft of its class. Manufactured in the USA.

Applications

Planning

Every construction project begins at ground zero. Drone technology makes data collection faster, easier, and more cost-effective – providing your business with a competitive edge from as early as the bidding process. 

Drone solutions map large work sites to provide detailed, precise data for architects and contractors. With flight planning and 3D modeling software, project teams can easily and rapidly collect the surveying data needed to evaluate large worksites.
Design

drone solutions collect detailed, precise data that architects can reference throughout the design process. Using drone-based 3D modeling and BIM software, architects can develop designs with a comprehensive understanding of site conditions.

Construction

Construction projects are complex, involving multiple sub-contractors, hundreds of workers, several years and millions of dollars to complete a single project. Drone technology provides regular, detailed maps of a site to align internal and external stakeholders to ensure each

  • Fly over buildings and obstacles, and see through smoke with thermal cameras to help prioritize targets
  • Stream live video intelligence back to command centers to align teams and eliminate uncertainty
  • Leverage high-resolution cameras to remotely monitor remaining threats and document damage for future analysis
  • Bypass natural obstacles and quickly scout high-risk forested regions from above
  • Fly above the tree-line to quickly ascertain the scope of the fire, and establish firelines and firebreaks
  • With an eye in the sky, incident commanders can determine where to deploy resources

  • Surveying drones and software solutions combine multiple types of geographic information to create 2D orthomosaics and 3D models to help with classification and planning.
  • Drones can be operated in complex terrains, with intelligent features that follow the terrain to ensure flight safety without compromising data accuracy.
  • The 2D maps and 3D models generated are compatible with a variety of GIS software, so results can be quickly visualized for timely adjustments.

Drone solutions provide project teams with enhanced on-site situational awareness. By using image stitching and 3D modeling software, teams stay fully informed on site progress and resource allocation – keeping projects on time and on track.

Drone solutions provide project teams with accurate and secure data storage and transmission. By documenting on-site data throughout a project life cycle, contractors can easily track changes and build as-built models that reflect changes in detail.

Inspection

Building inspections often require teams to implement manual, rope-access techniques which require walking across rooftops and scaffolding. DJI drone solutions provide teams with high definition 20-megapixel images that can be captured on a single flight for tasks requiring

Drone solutions provide inspectors with accurate data and enhanced safety. With high quality aerial imaging and real-time video transmission, inspectors can evaluate buildings from the ground without putting themselves in harm’s way.
