According to aviation experts, Spreading Wings is one of the most well recognized and popular airframes and meant for both amateurs and professionals. Since the time it was launched, it has rapidly evolved into an upgraded version popularly known as S800 Evo, which incorporates updated designs and advancements that give a new definition to DJI.
In field of drones, it was like a boon as it is meant to perform superb aerial photography with the use DJI’s Zenmuse line of camera gimbals. With advanced professional grade cameras encroaching the market, larger and heavier than what has been used with the S800 before, DJI saw an urgent need for a more powerful, and so the DJI S1000 was introduced.
Built on conventional frame and knowledge, DJI has come up with an Octocopter that incorporates all of the things popular in the S800, in line with some new features that are poised to make it a strong push. Above all, it will be powerful enough of carrying cameras such as the Canon 5D mark 3, as well of course as all of the other varieties cameras people are knowledgeable enough to using with Zenmuse gimbals.
The DJI S1000 comes in a big box which contains two trays with all of the components packedgreatly inside them. The upper tray contains the airframe, which is completely assembled, and the parts that prepare the landing gear legs. There is also a bag of miscellaneous hardware stored in the center of the tray. The bottom tray contains the eight booms, each with a motor, ESC, and prop already attached.
The most distinguishingadvantage of the S1000 is the fact that the arms (or booms) are feasibly foldable. All eight arms fold straight down, thus making this huge Octocopter greatlyin no time. At the base of each arm is an aluminum “knuckle” that contains a large bolt through the bottom of it, which the arm lands on. Once the arm is in the raised position, a tough plastic lock rotates into place, pulling the arm in towards the frame as it locks. The lock has a very hard and positive click once it locks in place, and there is no movement in the arm once it is locked. Each arm has a high intensity LED mounted on the underside of the ESC, two red at the front and the rest are green. The props also fold back comfortably, and are put in place on the boom with small foam holders.
