The Matrice 500 Drone is a new flying platform designed for professional aerial photography and industrial applications by DJI. Its dust proof propulsion systems simplify maintenance while actively cooled motors make for reliable operation during extended periods of time.
All Zenmuse cameras and gimbals are natively compatible, and a maximum payload of 6 kg allows it to fly the Ronin-MX gimbal and a range of cameras from Micro Four Thirds systems to the RED Epic. It uses a sine-wave driven, intelligent ESC to ensure it performs its duties accurately, efficiently and safely while the A3’s self-adaptive flight systems adjust flight parameters based on different payloads. This is taking photography to a whole new level. With a price of just under $8000, this drone is only for the big boys that are serious about taking their photography to an unprecedented level.
