It’s Official! DJI Announces the Matrice 100 Open Source Quadcopter
After the rumors I reported of a new DJI quadcopter platform, my email was graced with the official announcement: DJI has a new drone development platform called the Matrice 100(well, the rumors were close)! Featuring a modular platform with a full software development kit, the Matrice 100 has these other features:
- Optional sensor platform for collision detection for elevations below 65ft
- Upgrade to a second battery port for up to 30 minutes flight times
- A shock-style landing strut for softer landings
- Radio featuring up to 1.2 miles in range!
There’s a whole pile of features Right Here straight from the DJI webpage that is too in depth for me to cover, but pricing for the base Matrice 100 system goes for $3300, which is around the average price of an Inspire, but with the ability to modify and program.
