DJI's New Matrice 600 Drone Knows Where it's Going, Plus Ronin-MX Gimbal Gets Stronger and Smoother

The new system integrates DJI’s A3 flight controller, features Lightbridge 2 video-transmission technology and can be combined with the Ronin-MX aerial three-axis gimbal.

DJI is going all in on the drone game this year at NAB, designing a new Ronin that can hook up to their new drone, the Matrice 600. The Ronin-MX, which is mounted on the M600, has a CANBUS port that allows flight controller data to pass through the gimbal, making the drone aware of its position and able to maintain the horizon level. It can turn around a complete 360-degrees, tilt plus-45-degrees to negative-135-degrees, has redundant slip rings and features an optional accessory to transmit real-time video from a mounted camera. Andy Zou got a chance to talk with DJI's Adam Najberg at NAB 2016.

The M600 starts at a retail price of $4,599. Combined with the Ronin-MX, it sells for $5,999.

Still no one talking about how you can't get a live video feed with this combo in North America, since part SRW-60G, which i required to get a video feed, is not permitted for use in North America.

You can get a live feed using many of the standard HD transmitters out there. Granted, it won't be an integrated "DJI" solution anymore, but at least you can get a video feed.

The M600 after batteries, gimbals and accessories you may be looking north of $7k, for a system that can be found elsewhere cheaper, and with better customer support. With as many features as this one. We offer Gryphon Dynamics X8 octocopters, which are more redundant thanks to 8 motors, are also capable of lifting up to 20lbs of camera equipment vs 13lbs from this M600, and can be configured to go with a DJI gimbal for under $7k, including batteries that are not tied to a proprietary brand, and are more economical.
