The S1000 is the top-of-the-range multi-rotor in the DJI fleet. It’s a high powered and stable octocopter which is ideally suited for the serious cinematographer and photographer who wants to fly with heavier cameras. Like the S900, it has a retractable undercarriage so that the view from your camera on the Zenmuse gimbal is an unresticted 360 degrees. You also have the choice of two flight controllers – the Wookong-M and the state-of-the-art A2. The addition of two more motors and props gives you more benefits than just an increased payload. You also gain with improved stability and responsiveness as well as the added peace of mind in the event of a motor or prop failure. The S1000 + weighs approximately 4.4kg but its maximum take-off weight is around 11 kg.
If you’re intending to fly your S1000 commercially then you’ll have to make sure that your flight assessment qualification covers you for all aircraft under 20 kg.
The team at Heliguy can build your rig to your own personal specification. You then have the option of a one day handover session during which you’ll be guided through the technicalities of your new aircraft before taking it for a test flight.
