The S900 flying platform from DJI is an incredibly versatile aerial photography system. Built for filmmakers and professional photographers, this amazing drone is incredibly lightweight, without compromising on strength. The folding design also makes it portable, allowing you to concentrate on getting the best video possible. It can achieve a flight time of up to 18 minutes and can provide a live feed back to the camera operator, using DJI's Lightbridge system.
The DJI S900 is a hexacopter that is ideally suited for the serious videographer and photographer. It is a flexible and adaptable camera platform that can be configured to your requirements. When combined with DJI's Z15 range of professional stable gimbals, the S900 can carry ultra high definition cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and get some amazing results. Depending on your choice of accessories and batteries, the S900 can be kept under the 7kg limit but it can go up to a maximum take-off weight of 8.2kg if you are qualified in the 7-20kg category. The six motors and props offer redundancy and ensure you can land the S900 and your camera in the event of a failure.
You can have a choice of flight controllers. We currently build with the A2 or the more advanced A3. You can also add a stabilised camera gimbal - the DJI Z15 range, or the Ronin-MX if you want to use any camera.
The amount of choice when building the S900 rig is astounding. From the flight controllers and gimbals above, to waypoints, telemetry, FPV, batteries and remote controls.
