DJI has announced the S900 Spreading Wings Hexacopter, designed for professional aerial photographers and cinematographers.

DJI recently announced they will be phasing out their S800 line, and now we know exactly why!

The DJI S900's lightweight, compact design makes it easy to take anywhere and create amazing aerials on the go. Equipped with DJI's most advanced motors and electronic speed controllers, a sturdy carbon fiber frame, and a brand-new power distribution system, the S900 gives you the power, strength, and stability you need to create amazing footage.

Lightweight, Strong, and Stable

The S900’s arms and landing gear are made of sturdy carbon fiber, reducing weight while increasing stability and strength. This enables a long flight time without sacrificing performance.

Professional Quality 

Weighing just 3.3kg, the S900 has a maximum takeoff weight of 8.2kg. This means you can easily carry most cameras and gimbals. Used with a 6S 12000mAh battery, it can fly for up to 18 minutes. * 

*Maximum flight time is tested on a breezeless day with a payload of 6.8kg, hovering at a height of 2 meters.

Wide Range of Shooting Angles 

Retractable landing gear and a special low gimbal mounting bracket gives you an extremely wide range of possible shooting angles and camera motions.

Reduced Vibrations, Clearer Footage 

The S900’s gimbal bracket is separated from the main frame by specifically designed dampers. This significantly reduces high-frequency vibrations and makes your shots clearer and sharper.

Removable Upper Center Board 

The upper center board can be removed, allowing easy access to install your flight controller and IMU, and giving you a convenient way to setup the power distribution system. Even installation of your main controller, iOSD, Lightbridge, or any other accessories is faster and easier than ever before. This new center board structure is perfectly compatible with the DJI WKM and A2 flight controllers.

New Power Distribution System 

A redesigned, rebuilt power distribution system improves safety and reliability. Gold-plated metal bearings with a unique screw design secure the power cords, ensuring cables will not come loose during flight and allowing easy setup.

Spark proof Plug 

Prevent short circuits and easily plug in your power supply with the AS150 spark proof plug.

Compatible with Zenmuse Gimbals 

DJI’s Zenmuse camera gimbals are known for their stability, providing smooth footage capture in even the most difficult of conditions. The S900 fully supports the Zenmuse Z15, GH3, GH4, and BMPCC gimbals.

Innovative Arm Design 

Each arm is designed with an 8° inversion and a 3° inclination, making the aircraft more stable when rolling and pitching, yet more flexible when rotating. 

Greater Power 

A 40A electronic speed controller (ESC), DJI's fastest available, is built in to each arm. Combined with its 4114 pro motors, high performance 1552 folding propellers, and V-type mixer design, the S900 has a maximum thrust of 2.5Kg. 

DJI's latest motor adopts a single wire stator design, offering improved heat dissipation, better performance, and a tidier, more reliable system.
