I’m also curious about the logistics of taking advantage of the Hasselblad color science features. Do you use software from DJI or Hasselblad to work the color, and/or do they offer plug-ins that can be used with Adobe or DxO?

Your best bet for good and consistent color is to use the X-Rite color checker to produce a profile for the drone camera. Use the profile Color Checker creates for use in Lightroom Classic. Shoot in raw and adjust to taste from there.

it’s not one and done, you need to do it for each type of light

You can do that if you like. However, the Color Checker passport software will use two images, one daylight and one in warm/tungsten light to create a dual illuminant profile that will work in nearly every situation.

Many confuse the use of profiles with white balance. Once you have a good dual illuminant profile, you will then also need to also handle the white balance as desired. A raw/dng image will give much better flexibility in WB adjustment.
