DJI already showed up how far they want their drone line up to grow by introducing Matrice 100. It had everything a professional Filmmaker would desire for. DJI wanted to create an even more advanced aerial platform for professionals. Their new DJI Matrice 600 says it all.

It’s not a drone, it’s a complete aerial flying platform.

Design:

The matrice 600 is basically a hexacopter rather than a traditional quadcopter. The extra two propellers provide this aerial system the extra power it needs. The drone’s six wings are made up of heavy duty material and these wings are collapsible, making Matrice 600 convenient to carry. The landing gear this time is a bit longer in length.

This extra length actually helps in practical usage because the drone lands above the ground level with more room to spare and this landing gear can also retract when the drone is in the air.

Now coming to the central hub, again it houses tons of stuff including the all-new flight control chipset. Beneath the drone, we have a dedicated space left to attach any camera system. Along the sides and the center, we have six slots which are there for the batteries. Yes, matrice 600 has six battery slots.

This new flying system can handle up to 13 pounds of payload, again very impressive numbers. Even with this amount of payload, this aerial platform loses nothing in terms of performance.

Furthermore, Matrice 600 comes loaded with DJI’S Lightbridge 2 technology on board. With Lightbridge 2, the quality of video stream has been improved vastly. It can now stream Full HD live video stream to the dedicated Controller and that too at 60 Fps. Moreover, matrice 600 can also broadcast live video feed at 720p HD resolution and 1080i at 50 fps. So, in the performance department, Matrice 600 has a lot to offer and it won’t let down anyone.

Battery life:

Matrice 600 has six battery compartments and all these batteries are high capacity intelligent flying batteries. Despite the size and the number of slots, the flying time is around 15 minutes.
