Small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) manufacturer DJI Innovations has introduced a new lightweight hexacopter, dubbed the Spreading Wings S900.
According to a company press release, the S900 provides low mounting brackets, retractable landing gears, vibration dampening and foldable arms, making it easily transportable and compact enough to carry in the back of a small car.
Weighing in at 3.3 kg (7.2 lbs), the aircraft uses DJI’s fastest electronic speed controller and 4114 pro motors, allowing it to have a take-off weight of 8.2 kg (18 lbs). It can fly for up to 18 minutes when it is paired with a 6S 12000mAh battery and carrying 6.8 kg (15 lbs) of weight.
It is compatible with other DJI tools, including the DJI Lightbridge and the Zenmuse Z15, GH3, GH4 and BMPCC gimbals.
DJI says it also redesigned the S900’s power distribution board to minimize the number of cables, creating a system that is easier to set up, more reliable during flight and safer to use.
The S900 is available for pre-order through authorized dealers across the globe for an MSRP of up to $3,800, depending on flight controller and gimbal options.
