DJI, a company specializing in the development of flight control technology, has introduced their latest photography drone, the ‘Spreading Wings S900′. Like most of their remote-controlled helicopters, the automated device features advanced autopilot technology coupled with a unique gimbal stabilization system, delivering video footage and images of comparable quality to those shot on manned helicopters. The device has a lightweight, highly portable frame; the arms and landing gear are made of carbon fiber, which increases stability and strength without sacrificing performance. The portable drone is designed with arms that fold in order to save space, a redesigned and rebuilt power distribution system with gold-plated metal bearings that secure the power cords during flight, and a removable upper center board, meaning set-up time just takes a few minutes. Combined with 4114 pro motors and 1552 folding propellers, the S900 has a maximum thrust of 2.5 kilograms.
Retractable landing gear and a special low gimbal mounting bracket give users a wide range of possible shooting angles and camera motions. The latest motor adopts a single wire stator design, offering improved heat dissipation and better performance. Each arm is designed with an 8° inversion and a 3° inclination, making the aircraft more stable when rolling and pitching, yet more flexible when rotating. As the gimbal bracket is separated from the main frame by specially designed dampers, it significantly reduces high-frequency vibrations, resulting in a clearer and sharper shot. The specs are readily available online for anyone looking to purchase.
