The DJI Matrice 100 is a new flying platform which allows you to customise and tailor it by using the DJI SDK. The DJI Matrice 100 system can be developed for any use, the Matrice has cutting-edge flight technology and offers technology to revolutionise industries by applying your own knowledge and skills to customise to your requirements.
The DJI Matrice 100 features expansion bays, these expansion bays allow you to add components, customise the payload and fly with any devices you want. The Matrice allows you the use of cameras, sensors, computing boards, communication tools and more in the sky. The Matrice can gather data while completing complex jobs all from a birds-eye view. The universal power and communication ports are plug in and fly with almost any device and the data is transmitted via the Matrice 100’s dual CAN and UART ports. There is two of each port on your platform, enabling you to mount and build a system that matches your requirements. With dual battery compartments extra batteries can be added with additional battery compartments to achieve up to a 40 minute flight time, flight times will change with the payload and conditions. The additional battery compartments will give greater power for both the Matrice 100’s platform and any additional devices or accessories that you wish to fly with. DJI have flown and tested the flight times, and the maximum 40 minute flight time tested was when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload installed.
With an adjustable mounting and balancing system on the Matrice 100 you can achieve perfect balance, centre of gravity and an ideal flight experience by sliding the battery and other compartments around the body of the Matrice 100. By placing the components exactly where you want them you gain the most from the system. The adjustments don’t stop at just moving the battery and other compartments; the adjustable arm angle allow for greater torque and flexibility to match the needs of your flight. The Matrice 100 arm adjustment is quick and easy, the arm angle of all 4 arms can be changed, and these adjustments will achieve an increase in yaw torque and greater response by tilting the arms to a 3 degree angle. The Matrice 100 is constructed from strong lightweight carbon fibre, this construction means that there is 50% less vibrations from this rigid, strong system to reduce vibrations, the increase stiffness. Each of the arms contains DJI’s soft vibration absorbing material that virtually eliminates feedback from the powerful motors, keeping your critical components stable and allowing unprecedented accuracy. The Matrice 100 is a very responsive airframe with quick release landing pads / feet installed under each arm, these provide protectection for the Matrice 100 when landing. These pads greatly reduce impact, protecting the system and eliminating the chance of your platform unintentionally lifting off of the ground, they are easy and quick to remove for replacement or upgrades.
The Matrice 100 uses a dedicated remote controller, take control of your platform with the customisable, long-range remote controller included with the Matrice 100. With an operating distance of up to 1.2 miles* (2km), a rechargeable battery, fully adjustable controls, and outputs to connect to your mobile device, this is the perfect controller to command your system in the air. *The maximum range tested by DJI was in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.
The Matrice 100 has full mobile App support, the DJI pilot App is full of features or you can create your own app with the DJI SDK. See a live view, control your devices, access a real-time map, and more by simply plugging in your tablet or smartphone. The enhanced GPS with a foldable mount helps you to track your Matrice 100’s position in real time, while enabling faster satellite acquisition, more accurate position holding and flight planning. The Matrice 100 has an upgraded flight controller with an integrated Lightbridge. DJI’s new N1 flight controller keeps the Matrice 100 stable and responsive to your commands throughout every flight. The transmitted data bringing a live HD view (when using DJI’s X3 Camera and gimbal), the included DJI Lightbridge increases your flight range to 1.2 miles* (2km). *Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.
With the purpose built propulsion system based on an upgraded version of the respected DJI E800 electric propulsion system delivers power to the Matrice 100 and keeps it in flight. The four powerful, brushless motors and four lightning fast Electronic Speed Controllers are integrated into the platform, giving you complete control during flight. With increased strength and payload capacity, you have the flexibility to create the system you require.
