DJI Innovations has introduced a new aerial drone, called Spreading Wings S900, which supports mirrorless cameras and offers a flying time of up to 18 minutes.
One of the most popular manufacturers of aerial photography drones is DJI Innovations. The Phantom and Phantom Vision are really nice to use, but you are limited to a GoPro camera or to a built-in sensor, respectively.
For the experts, the company is offering the Spreading Wings series. A new model is joining the line-up and it promises to be one of the best products DJI Innovations has ever created. It is called Spreading Wings S900 and it consists of a lightweight, but powerful drone that allows users to attach a mirrorless camera to it.
DJI launches better, stronger aerial drone: Spreading Wings S900
DJI Spreading Wings S900 comes packed with six motors and 15-inch propellers. The arms and propellers are foldable, allowing users to easily transport and store the aerial vehicle.
The arms are made out of carbon fiber, thus reducing weight, while increasing the strength of the whole system. In addition to being stronger and more stable, the S900 comes with a new power board that improves both safety and power efficiency.
The company has confirmed that the UAV supports a loadout of 8.2kg, while the drone itself weighs 3.3kg. This means that you can add 4.9kg to the device and it will still be able to fly and capture tremendous aerial videos and photos.
DJI Spreading Wings S900 can fly for up to 18 minutes at a time
The new Spreading Wings S900 is capable of flying for about 18 minutes with a payload of 6.8kg on a day when the wind is not blowing.
Its power comes from a 12,000mAh battery, which can be recharged. DJI has added a retractable landing gear to its drone as well as compatibility with the Zenmuse gimbals.
This means that your footage will turn out very smooth and stable, even in windy conditions.
Ability to carry a mirrorless camera around comes at a high price
Although the GoPro and the Vision camera are capable of capturing decent footage, the quality of a mirrorless camera is unquestionable.
One of the best things about this is that you can also attach a Panasonic GH4 to the DJI Spreading Wings S900. As a result, you will amaze your friends, family, and the entire internet with spectacular 4K aerial footage.
The only downside could be the fact that the UAV costs $3,800. More information about the new S900 can be found at DJI’s official website
