DJI has unveiled the new Matrice 200 drone series (M200), which is purpose-built for professional users to perform aerial inspections and collect data. The M200 series features a folding body that’s easy to carry and easy to set up, with a weather- and water-resistant body, ideal for field operations.

The M200 series offers DJI’s first upward-facing gimbal mount and is compatible with DJI’s X4S and X5S cameras, as well as the high-powered Z30 zoom camera and the XT camera for thermal imaging. It also has a forward-facing first-person view camera, allowing a pilot and a camera operator to monitor separate images on dual controllers.

Its safety features include obstacle avoidance sensors facing forward, up and down, as well as an ADS-B receiver for advisory traffic information from nearby manned aircraft. With a dual battery set-up, the M200 platform can fly for up to 35 minutes with a mounted camera.

The M200, the M210 and the M210 RTK are available for pre-order from official DJI Enterprise dealers and will start shipping in Q2 2017. For more information about the M200 series, please visit the drone series’ dedicated webpage.
