Supporting a total takeoff weight of 18 pounds, the Spreading Wings S900 Hexacopterfrom DJI is optimized for installing a gimbal such as the Zenmuse Z15 enabling capture of aerial videos and photos. It features carbon fiber frame arms to cut down on weight, which fold down for storage and transport. Used with a 6S 12000mAh battery, available separately, the S900 can fly for up to 18 minutes fully laden.
This version of the S900 does not have a flight control system included. It is designed to work with both the A2 and WooKong-M systems, depending on user preference and the types of radios to be used. The Wookong-M is more widely compatible, while the A2 is for Futaba FASST series and DJI DESST series transmitters.
The S900 is not a ready-to-fly (RTF) aircraft. It does require some assembly and, in addition to the flight controller, a transmitter (hand-held radio controller) and batteries are also required. For power, it uses LiPo flight batteries in 6S configuration, a 10,000 to 15,000 mAh capacity, and requires a discharge rate of at least 15C.
