Is there any plan to support the DJI Matrice 300 RTK?

Hi @AndrewBowne, support for the M300 RTK in the Site Scan for ArcGIS Flight app is expected later this year. Processing of RGB imagery from the H20, H20T and P1 sensors is already available in the Site Scan Manager web-app.

@dozer - Great! thanks for the update.  How about the DJI Mavic Air2?  Are there any plans to support this drone as well?

@AndrewBowne as with the M300, images taken from the DJI Mavic Air 2 can still be processed in Site Scan Manager. However, we are unable to integrate it into the Flight app due to current limitations in the manufacturer's mobile SDK. If you have more questions about supported drone models for your needs please feel free to email me at dozer@esri.com and I can connect you with the right people on our side.

Is there any planned support for the Skydio 2?

I would like to know as well.

Hi, the site scan for ArcGIS have compatibility with Fix Wings ?  if the answer is positive what are the model names?

@cmoore499@JasonNewton@Erasoc

We are not currently working on implementing support for a fixed-wing drone or the Skydio2 drone in the Site Scan Flight app. Our focus is on the Freefly Astro and DJI M300RTK. 

As @dozer shared above, processing of images from most fixed wing drones or the Skydio 2 is supported in Site Scan Manager today. 

If you'd like to suggest adding support for any particular drone in the Flight app, I encourage you to submit an idea in the Imagery Ideas community page (one per drone make and model). This will allow other users to vote for your idea, and allow our Product team to provide updates on the status of the request.
