Additional expansion bays allow you to add components, customize the payload, and fly with any devices you want. Put cameras, sensors, computing boards, communication tools, and more into the sky, and gather data while completing complex jobs from bird’s eye view.
Universal Power and Communication Ports
Plug in and fly with almost any device and transmit data via the Matrice 100’s dual CAN and UART ports. There are two of each port on your platform, enabling you to mount and build a system that matches your needs.
Dual Battery Compartments
Add an additional battery compartment to achieve up to 40 minutes* of flight time. This gives greater power to both your platform and any additional devices or accessories that you wish to fly with. *Flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions, and the maximum 40-minute flight time tested when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload.
Customizable Mounting and Balancing
Achieve perfect balance and an ideal flight experience by sliding the battery and other compartments around the body of your Matrice 100. Put your components exactly where you want them and get the most out of your system.
Adjustable Arm Angle for Greater Torque
Flexible to match your flight needs, adjusting the arm angle of each of the 4 arms is quick and easy. Achieve increased yaw torque and greater response by tilting the arms to a 3-degree angle.
50% Less Vibrations, Rigid, Strong System
To reduce vibrations, increase stiffness, and bring unmatched reliability, your Matrice 100 is made of strong, lightweight carbon fiber. Each of the arms contains DJI’s new soft vibration absorbing material that virtually eliminates feedback from the powerful motors, keeping your critical components stable and allowing unprecedented accuracy.
Responsive, Quick Release Landing Pads
Innovative landing pads or “feet” are installed at the base of each arm to protect your Matrice 100 when landing. These pads greatly reduce impact, protecting your system and eliminating the chance of your platform unintentionally lifting off the ground. Also, easy and quick to remove for replacement or upgrades.
Dedicated Remote Controller
Take control of your platform with the customizable, long range remote controller included with the Matrice 100. With an operating distance of up to 1.2 miles* (2km), a rechargeable battery, fully adjustable controls, and outputs to connect to your mobile device, this is the perfect tool to command your system in the air. *Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.
Full Mobile App Support
Fly with the feature rich DJI Pilot app or create your own app with the DJI SDK. See a live view, control your devices, access a real-time map, and more by simply plugging in your tablet or smartphone.
Enhanced GPS with a foldable mount helps you to track your Matrice 100’s position in real time, while enabling faster satellite acquisition, more accurate position holding and flight planning.
Upgraded Flight Controller and Integrated Lightbridge
DJI’s new N1 flight controller keeps your Matrice 100 stable and responsive to your commands throughout every flight. Transmitting data to you and bringing a live HD view (when using DJI’s X5 Camera and gimbal), the included DJI Lightbridge increases your flight range to 1.2 miles* (2km). *Maximum range tested in open areas free of interference and may vary depending on local regulations.
Purpose Built Propulsion System
An upgraded version of the respected DJI E800 electric propulsion system powers your Matrice 100 and keeps it in flight. Four powerful, brushless motors and four lightning fast Electronic Speed Controllers are integrated into the platform, giving you complete control during flight. With increased strength and payload capacity, you have the flexibility to create the system you need.
Compatible Parts for Further Functionality
The Matrice 100 is compatible with a wide range of DJI accessories including:
- Guidance: DJI’s revolutionary sensor kit that helps your platform see its environment and recognize when obstacles or other objects are nearby.
- X3 Camera and Gimbal: Shoot stabilized 4K video and capture 12-megapixel images from the sky with DJI’s integrated camera and 3 axis gimbal system.
- Extra Battery: Extend your flight time by flying with an additional DJI Intelligent Flight Battery.
- Expansion Bays: Use more expansion bays to put all your desired devices onto your Matrice 100 and create a truly unique, customized platform.
Zenmuse Z3 Optical Zoom Camera
Get Closer, See More
When shooting aerial, getting closer to your subject meant flying nearer, but no more. The DJI Zenmuse Z3 is an integrated aerial zoom camera based on DJI’s class leading Zenmuse X3 and optimized for still photography. A 7× zoom, made up of 3.5× optical and 2× digital lossless zoom, gives it a focal length ranging from 22mm to 77mm, making it ideal for industrial applications.
Real-Time Zoom View
When shooting at the highest possible resolution, i.e. 4K video or 12-megapixel photos, optical zoom can be used, and the zoomed image is instantly visible in the DJI GO live feed. If shooting in 1080p, lossless zoom allows the full 7× of zoom without sacrificing full-HD image quality.
Enhanced Yaw Stability
When a camera is zoomed in the smallest movements are magnified. Adding an additional layer of control to the Z3’s yaw is a custom designed reaction wheel. This works in tandem with the normal yaw motor to allow for more refined and controlled movement.
High Quality Imaging
Featuring the same highly refined Sony 1/2.3-inch sensor found on the DJI Inspire 1 2.0 and DJI Phantom 4, image quality is class leading. Still images can be captured at a resolution of 12 megapixels, while Adobe DNG RAW support allows for advanced image editing. Video can be captured at up to 30 frames per second in crisp 4K.
The ability to zoom in the air creates many new opportunities to streamline and enhance industrial and commercial drone use, from power line inspection to search and rescue. It also provides aerial photographers with greater control over composition.
Flying with the Zenmuse Z3 is as simple as attaching it to the DJI Inspire 1, Matrice 100 or Matrice 600. Once connected, it works seamlessly with the integrated DJI Lightbridge and Lightbridge 2 found on these platforms to provide 3.1mi (5km) of HD transmission range. Aircraft setup can be further accelerated using the DJI SDK to create industry specific aircraft automation protocols that maximize aircraft efficiency.
Flight times can even reach 30 minutes when flying a dual-battery equipped Matrice 100 and 39 minutes using the Matrice 600. Longer flight times maximize airtime, increasing the efficiency of industrial and commercial projects while providing photographers with additional time to wait for the right light, compose and capture the perfect shot.
All flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions.
Maximum flight times are tested with maximum capacity batteries and no additional payload.
Powerful App Control
DJI’s GO app is tightly integrated with the Z3, acting as both a live feed to see the camera’s image and the primary control system for the camera. It can be used to change camera settings, swipe to zoom in and out, capture photo or video, and activate Intelligent Flight Modes. Photo and video capture as well as zoom can also be controlled through dedicated controls on the Remote Controller.
