DJI M300 RTK: Next Gen Collision Avoidance
The Matrice 300 RTK is DJI’s safest enterprise drone platform yet. It combines six direction dual visual sensors, dual Time-of-Flight (TOF) sensors, and an adjustable detection range between 1 to 40m to improve reliability.
These sensors are even more effective in low light conditions when top and bottom auxiliary lights automatically turn on.
DJI has promised an upcoming additional Circular Scanning Millimeter-Wave (CSM) Radar, which can be mounted to augment the six collision detection sensors.
With the M300 RTK onboard ai, drone pilots can maintain safety while flying close to their targets to capture the highest definition data.
DJI M300 RTK: A New DJI Smart Controller Enterprise
The Matrice 300 RTK comes with the new DJI Smart Controller Enterprise. This device features an ultra-bright 5.5-inch 1080p display, similar to the popular Smart Controller for the DJI Mavic Series (DJI Mavic Air & DJI Mavic Pro). The DJI Smart Controller Enterprise is twice as bright as conventional smart devices, allowing for much easier viewability.
The controller supports DJI Pilot, as well as third-party apps.
Thanks to the DJI Smart Controller Enterprise, pilots are assured of aviation-grade situational awareness.
The drone has a new Primary Flight Display, which integrates flight, navigation, and obstacle information.
During your mission, flight information such as aircraft altitude and velocity, as well as wind speed and wind direction, are presented.
Pilots can also view their aircraft’s live status, such as trajectory and home-point projection, and see all nearby obstacles with the new obstacle map.
DJI M300 drone operators can also utilize the PinPoint, SmartTrack, and Location Sharing functions to maximize efficiency. These functions are only supported when you pair the H20 series cameras (more later) with the DJI M300 aircraft.
These additional features can be beneficial to public safety drone pilots and operators. For example:
- PinPoint – A quick tap marks an object in view, and advanced sensor fusion algorithms immediately deliver its coordinates.
- SmartTrack –You can identify and follow moving subjects with the auto-zoom function while acquiring the subject’s dynamic location.
- Location Sharing – When PinPoint or SmartTrack is enabled, you can project a subject’s location across multiple camera views. The feature allows sharing to another remote controller or through online platforms, such as DJI FlightHub (note that support for location sharing via DJI FlightHub is an upcoming feature).
DJI M300 RTK: Advanced Dual Control
One of the most exciting features of the DJI M300 RTK is the advanced dual control. This feature enables multiple operators to switch control of the aircraft in-flight safely. The ability to change operators is valuable during complex or long-distance missions.
One control can pilot the aircraft while the other control operates the gimbal and payload.
With a single tap, either operator can obtain control of the aircraft or payload.
The drone can take-off and land in different locations with different pilots. The bottom line is that the advanced controls create new possibilities for mission strategies and higher flexibility during operations.
The M300 RTK, when controlled by two pilots, gives each drone pilot equal access to gain flight control priority, the transfer of which is displayed by a series of icons on the DJI Smart Controller Enterprise.
If one pilot becomes compromised or their controller loses battery or connection, the other pilot gains full control over the M300 RTK and its payloads.
Additionally, when training new pilots, the teacher/main pilot can safely take over flight control – if and whenever necessary.
When flying with a co-pilot, you both have equal access to gain flight control priority, the transfer of which is signaled by a series of icons on your DJI Smart Controller Enterprise.
Two pilots can seamlessly transfer between control of the drone and to its gimbals. With these redesigned flight control protocols, a visual line of sight can be maintained from one pilot to a co-pilot to enable Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) missions.
DJI M300 RTK: Flight Time And Speed
The DJI M300 RTK sets a new standard for drone capability and reliability. The aircraft’s refined airframe and propulsion system design ensures a more efficient and stable flight, even in harsh and challenging conditions.
Flight performance is excellent. The drone’s maximum flight time is 55 minutes (without payload) or 31 minutes when it is at its maximum take-off weight of 9kg. When carrying the new H20T sensor, the M300 RTK can stay airborne for up to 36 minutes. The flight time can be extended to 45/46 minutes when you integrate the DJI M300 with either an XT2 or Z30.
|Payload||Total Weight||Flight Time|
|H20 + XT2||7.52kg||39mins|
The DJI M300 RTK has a maximum speed of 23m/s – equivalent to just over 51mph and almost 83kph.
The M300 RTK has a top descent speed of 7m/s, ensuring a quick landing.
It has a 7,000m service ceiling.
DJI M300 RTK: Improved Transmission System

To ensure a more reliable flight near high-interference environments, the M300 RTK benefits from auto-switch ability between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz in real-time.
The drone is also equipped with AES-256 encryption, offering safe and secure data transmission.
DJI M300 RTK: New Cameras
DJI provides two new cameras dedicated exclusively to the M300 RTK enterprise drone. These professional cameras are the Zenmuse H20 and the Zenmuse H20T – DJI’s first hybrid sensor payload solution.
The H20 is a triple-sensor solution featuring a 20MP zoom camera, a 12MP wide camera, and a laser rangefinder with a range of up to 1,200m.
The H20T is a quad-sensor solution, packed with the same capabilities as the H20 but bolstered by a radiometric thermal camera with a 640×512 resolution.
The key specifications for each part of the sensors:
Equivalent Focal Length: 24mm
12 MP 1/2.3″ CMOS Sensor
23× Hybrid Optical Zoom
200× Max Zoom
20 MP 1/1.7″ CMOS Sensor
Video Resolution: 4K/30fps
Range: 3 m – 1200 m
Accuracy: ± (0.2 m + D×0.15%)
Frame Rate: 30fps
Thermal Sensitivity: ≤ firstname.lastname@example.org (NEDT)
These multi-sensor payloads, which have an IP44 rating (protection against the intrusion of splashing water in all directions), take mission efficiency to the next level and can be utilized across various commercial drone applications.
Integrating the H20T with the M300 RTK ensures maximum efficiency and superior performance with just one payload. To put this into perspective, the M300 RTK with an H20T can fly for 36 minutes. In comparison, the M210 RTK V2, integrated with the Z30 zoom camera and XT2 thermal camera, can only fly for around 22 minutes.
In addition to the H20 and H20T, you can integrate the DJI M300 RTK with well-known existing solutions, such as:
- Zenmuse Z30 – a 30x optical zoom camera
- Zenmuse XT2 – 4K visual sensor and thermal imaging
- XT S – the XT2’s smaller sibling
The M300 RTK does not support the X4S, X5S, or X7, but you can integrate the aircraft with third-party payloads for specialized missions and tasks.
This flexibility means that you could utilize the H20T – for a thermal and zoom solution, aided by the laser rangefinder – and integrate the Wingsland Z15 high-powered spotlight (see picture below) to illuminate an area. This configuration would be a popular option for public safety and search and rescue, for example.
