The DJI Spreading Wings S1000 Premium with Zenmuse Z15 A7 Gimbal and DJI A2 Flight Controller is a bundle that features the S1000 Premium Octocopter, the Zenmuse Z15-A7 gimbal for a Sony a7 camera, and the A2 flight control system.
Featuring a removable upper center board for easier installation of flight electronics as well as a redesigned power distribution system, the Spreading Wings S1000+ Professional Octocopter from DJI continues the legacy of the original S1000. The S1000+ is a collapsible, eight-propeller RC helicopter designed to carry a DSLR or similar-sized camera. With a 24-pound maximum takeoff weight, it is intended to serve as a camera platform, allowing professional videographers and photographers to add dynamic aerial shots to their productions. It is designed to work with either the A2 or WooKong-M flight control systems, which are available separately.
For stabilizing and moving a camera in flight, the S1000 is compatible with any of the Zenmuse Z15 series gimbals. The airframe features a dampened gimbal mounting bracket with a low mounting position. Additionally, the landing gear can be raised, allowing an unobstructed 360° of visibility.
The S1000 is designed to power 6S lithium-polymer batteries. It will support capacities between 10,000 and 20,000mAh, and requires a discharge rate of at least 15C. With a 15,000mAh battery and a take-off weight of 21 pounds, it is estimated to fly approximately 15 minutes.
Note: Assembly is required and a flight control system is not included.
Removable Upper Center Board
The upper center board can be removed for easier installation of the A2 or WooKong-M flight control system, an iOSD module, the Lightbridge Air Unit, and other electronic components
Redesigned Power Distribution
New for the S1000+, the power distribution layout has be redesigned to make it simpler and enhance safety. Gold-plated metal bearings with a special screw design secure the power cords, helping to ensure cables will not come loose during flight
Take-Off Weight and Flying Time
Weighing approximately 9.7 pounds, the S1000+ is able to support a take-off weight of up to 24 pounds. This means it can handle camera payloads up to the approximate size of a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. With a 21 pound take-off weight and a 15,000mAh battery it features an estimated flying time of approximately 15 minutes
At the end of each prop arm is a 40A electronic speed controller (ESC). When combined with its 4114 pro motor and high performance 1552 folding propellers, it is capable of a maximum thrust of 5.5 pounds
Low Gimbal Mounting Position
The S1000+ supports all of DJI’s Zenmuse Z15 series gimbals for camera stabilization and control. The frame keeps the gimbal low, using a specially designed bracket. Additionally, the landing gear retract in flight so that full camera panning is possible
The gimbal and battery are mounted on the same bracket, with dampers placed between the bracket and the frame. This is designed to significantly reduce high-frequency vibrations to help make shots clearer and sharper. The battery tray’s position also makes it more stable and accessible for mounting and dismounting
Foldable Propellers and Collapsible Frame
All eight arms can be completely folded down and the 1552 folding propeller can be tucked away, minimizing the S1000+’s size for transportation. To fly, simply lift the frame arms up, lock them in place with the red clips, and power up the system
Efficient V-Type Mixer
The mixer in the S1000+ is designed to provide large amounts of propulsion while maintaining power efficiency. Acting in tandem with the flight control system, it will work to keep the aircraft stable and flying even after the loss of a rotor. Integrated into the center frame is a power distribution system using DJI’s proprietary coaxial cable connector
The mixer is designed to be easier to install or replace by eliminating the need for soldering. All frame arms as well as the retractable landing gear are made from carbon fiber, to help ensure a low weight profile and high structural stability
Inclined Prop Arm
Each prop arm features 8° inversion and a 3° inclination, making the aircraft more stable when rolling and pitching, and at the same time more flexible when rotating
The main power cord uses an AS150 sparkproof plug for positive and a XT150 plug for negative to prevent accidentally mixing up polarities, and preventing short circuits that could damage sensitive electronics
