Hardware Introduction

2019-11-08

DJI produces highly capable, remotely controlled aircraft, hand held cameras and stabilizers that are designed for both consumer and commercial applications. The products are widely accessible in both ease of use and affordability while still maintaining a quality and feature set unmatched in the industry.

Aircraft

DJI has a range of multi-rotor aircraft that can be automated with the Mobile SDK including the Spark, Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, Phantom series, Inspire series, Matrice 200 series, Matrice 100 and Matrice 600.

One of the key features of DJI aircraft is the camera's ability to stay horizontal regardless of the aircrafts's orientation. The camera is mounted on a gimbal, which actively compensates for any aircraft rotation, producing clear, beautiful images and videos.

There are many DJI aircraft to choose from that provide a range of features, performance, size and price. Specific metrics developers and users should be aware of when they consider an aircraft include:

  • Flight time
  • Size and weight
  • Camera specifications (image quality and movement control)
  • Swappable cameras
  • Obstacle avoidance
  • Customizable payloads
  • Maximum service ceiling
  • Available accessories
  • Remote controller features
  • Price

Handheld Camera

DJI's handheld camera Osmo series allows users to take smooth, professional videos while the user is moving, by integrating DJI's aircraft camera stabilization gimbal technology onto an easy to carry handle.

Stand Alone Components

Two components of the aircraft (flight controller and wireless link) can be used on DJI airframes and third party airframes. Some of these components have limited DJI Mobile SDK support.

Accessories

DJI aircraft and handheld cameras are compatible with a number of DJI accessories like: DJI Focus, D-RTK, Cendence and more. Some of these accessories are supported by the DJI Mobile SDK.

Components

Before doing a detailed product comparison it is useful to understand the basic components of a product and their functions.

All products comprise of component modules that provide an important feature or function. An introduction to common components can be found below, with more details here Component Guide.

ComponentsAircraft

Propulsion

Motor mounted propellors provide vertical thrust. The vertical thrust can be adjusted at each motor to allow the aircraft to hover, rotate, ascend, descend or fly horizontally.

Sensors

DJI aircraft have a large number of sensors that include but are not limited to: accelerometers, gyroscopes, compasses, barometers, ultrasonic sensors, cameras and satellite positioning systems. These sensors are used to determine the current state of the aircraft, predict it's future state and evaluate the environment around it.

Flight Controller

The Flight Controller is an onboard computer that couples control information from the pilot with sensor information to adjust the thrust at each propellor and fly the aircraft as desired.

Camera

The camera can record image and video data locally, transfer it wirelessly to an Android or iOS mobile device or provide an option to live steam video. Camera exposure and settings are highly customizable allowing capture of the perfect shot.

Gimbal

The gimbal holds and rotates the camera around three axes. The rotation can be used to control the direction of the camera and provide stabilization when the aircraft is not horizontal. The gimbal is mounted on a damped plate, that offers stabilization from lateral vibrations and rotational movement.

Vision Obstacle Avoidance & Positioning

Advanced sensors help the aircraft perceive the world around it. Stereo cameras are used to detect obstacles near the product. Downward facing cameras and ultrasonic sensors are used to determine relative ground position that provide accurate velocity estimates and can offer stable hover positions in GPS denied environments (like indoors).

Smart Battery

Smart batteries provide the energy required to run the system. Together with the flight controller, the smart battery can estimate remaining flight time and provide warnings when low battery thresholds are crossed. Batteries are easily swapped between flights, extending product use considerably.

Remote Controller

The remote controller provides control sticks, buttons, and wheels that give control of the aircraft flight, camera and gimbal. The remote controller maintains a wireless link with the aircraft, with some products having up to a 3 mi range when in ideal environments. The Flight Mode Switch on the remote controller can be used to switch between manual and automated flight.

ComponentsRemoteController

Mobile Device

An Android or iOS device can be connected to the remote controller through either USB or WiFi, to give an augmented flight experience showing the live camera feed and aircraft state information. Using the Mobile SDK, a mobile device can also be used to control the aircraft.

Handheld Controller

The handheld controller provides a joystick and buttons that control the camera and gimbal. The handheld controller connects to the mobile device through a WiFi access point inside the handle.

Flight Time

Product flight time is determined by total aircraft mass and the available stored (battery) energy on the aircraft. The available energy is determined by the number of batteries, the battery energy density and the maximum mass the propulsion system can support.

Battery Energy Density

DJI provides two series of batteries for the Inspire and Matrice product lines. The TB47 series is the default 99 Wh battery that comes with all aircraft. The TB48 series is a 130 Wh battery. While the TB48 battery has a 10-15% higher energy density, it can be less practical since batteries of >100 Wh often have transport restrictions.

Using a battery with a higher energy density will always translate to longer flight time, if all else is kept constant. However, as the TB48 battery is a little heavier than the TB47 battery, it is important to note that its use will restrict the maximum custom payload capacity. This is particularly noticeable on the Matrice series, when using more than one battery.

Using More Batteries

Increasing the number of batteries on a product will:

  • Increase the available energy for flight (increasing flight time)
  • Increase the aircraft mass and therefore:
    • Decrease flight time
    • Decrease the allowable additional payload

Camera

DJI provides a dynamic range of cameras and camera configurations. For the Phantom and Mavic lines, the cameras are fixed to the product. For the Inspire and Matrice lines of products, cameras can be interchanged (Zenmuse X3, X5, X5R, Z3, XT, Z30, X4S, X5S) however they are not compatible with all the available cameras. The Products and Accessories table at the top of the page details the combinations of camera and aircraft compatibility.

The Zenmuse XT is a thermal camera which makes it's specifications difficult to compare directly to other cameras, however it is still included in the comparison for it's mass for payload calculation. More details on the specifications of the Zenmuse XT can be found here .

Remote Controller

Remote controllers will differ in:

  • How they connect to a mobile device
  • What wireless technology they use to connect with the aircraft
  • Whether they have built-in GPS
  • If they can output secondary video
  • If they can be used in a dual master/slave configuration (one RC controls the aircraft while the other RC controls the gimbal and camera)

Remote Controllers using WiFi to connect to a mobile device, will act as a WiFi access point and need to be joined in the mobile device's network settings.
