DJI Launches 3 UAVs
DJI has expanded its drone
offerings with the introduction of
the Inspire 2, Matrice 600 Pro and
Mavic Pro.
DJI's Inspire 1 UAV
(unmanned aerial vehicle) integrated an HD video transmission
system, 360-degree rotating
gimbal and 4K camera, as well as
simple app control. Building on
the Inspire 1's successes, the Inspire 2 boasts an all-new imageprocessing system that records at up to 5.2K resolution - with the
Zenmuse X5S camera - in formats including CinemaDNG raw and
Apple ProRes. The drone can go from 0-50 mph in 5 seconds and
can hit a maximum speed of 58 mph, with a maximum descent
speed of 9 meters per second. A dual-battery system prolongs the
flight time, while self-heating technology allows the drone to fly
even in low temperatures.
Flight Autonomy has also been revised, with the Inspire 2
providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Multiple intelligent flight
modes have been added, including
Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots
the ability to create complex,
dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission
system is now capable of dual signal frequency
and dual-channel streaming video from an
onboard FPV camera and the main camera
simultaneously, enabling a smoother
collaboration between pilot and camera operator.
The Matrice 600 Pro (M600 Pro) professional hexacopter can
carry payloads up to 13.2 pounds; with a Ronin-MX stabilizer, the
system can carry cameras including a Red Epic or Raven, Arri Alexa
Mini, Sony a7S, or Canon EOS 5D. The M600 Pro inherits everything
from the M600 and adds improved flight performance and better
loading capacity. Pre-installed arms and antennas reduce the time
required for setup, and the system's modular design makes it easy
to mount additional modules.
The M600 Pro airframe is equipped with the latest DJI technologies, including the A3 Pro
flight controller and Lightbridge 2
HD transmission system. The sixbattery system enables flight
times of 15-35 minutes, depending on payload. All Zenmuse
cameras and gimbals are natively
compatible, and the M600 Pro
72

August 2017

offers full integration with third-party software and hardware.
DJI's Mavic Pro is a smart, portable, easy-to-fly drone that
features 24 high-performance computing cores, an all-new transmission system with a 4.3-mile unobstructed range, five vision
sensors, and a 4K camera stabilized by a three-axis mechanical
gimbal.

Yuneec Flies H520 Drone
Yuneec International has expanded its commercial UAV offerings with the H520, an advanced six-rotor drone. The H520 offers
longer flight time, greater
payload, modular design
and enhanced components.
The H520 features a
high-visibility
Hazard
Orange fuselage and a sixrotor design capable of
emergency flight with only
five rotors. A 360-degree,
3-axis gimbal coupled with
retractable landing gear
provides an unobstructed view from any angle. The camera and
gimbal are capable of a 20-degree up-angle for upward-looking
inspections.
Yuneec offers three camera options that include the CGO-ET
dual thermal RGB camera, CGO-CI seven-element inspection-ready
camera, and CGO-3+. Targeting the broadcast and cinema markets,
the CGO-CI's longer field of view and edge-to-edge distortion-free
lens captures sharp, high-contrast imaging to meet the needs of
filmmakers and broadcast producers. Additional upgrades to the
H520 camera options include a panoramic shooting function along
with burst, time-lapse and metering modes.
Challenging angles and locations are more accessible with
the safety backup of Intel RealSense Technology, which enables the
aircraft to intelligently navigate around objects. Coupled with uservariable speed control, pilots can confidently approach critical structures without concern of impact.
The H520 comes with the professional-grade Android-based
ST16 controller, which has a large 7" integrated display and HD
720p video downlink for real-time video reception, and an HDMI
uplink for distribution to external monitors
Yuneec is also launching a software developer kit (SDK) platform that allows third-parties to develop value-added applications
and services on the H520 platform for a variety of industries and
commercial markets.
