I will have the official updates in the morning. Just have a few minor things to clear up first.


<<All Zenmuse and Spread Wing S800 are taking pre-orders now only through DJI China and if you pre-order it before April 10th, you get another $320 discount.>> This is one minor detail we are waiting for clarification.

Please be patient we will have everything cleared up in the morning.

Thanks,

WOW!!! Just about double the original speculated price, but note that this is a 3 axis mount, not the 2 axis most hobbyists will be interested in. I would imagine the 2 axis would be somewhat lower. I would be interested in the full specs on the S800. $1600 is not out of line for a quality frame with motors, escs and props. Hopefully they will be generous with the props as I doubt that replacements will be readily available on introduction. With the discounts, combined they are about $1000 higher than what I have into my MK Hexa, but my camera mount is no where near the quality of the Zenmuse. I guess I may need to sell some more gear that I am not using. Sigh.....

you are right about the frame, consider DX costs 1k-ish, Cinestar costs 2k... 1.6 with discounts you are looking at a killer deal.

I will be getting the S800, not sure about Z15 though, however you are right again, most people shall be interested in the 2-axis gimbal

Pre-order for a gimbal where there is no video in action.
That is to believe blindly in the product.
video please.

So if you already have WKM and make a pre-order before april 10th you have a US$640 + US$320 discount for the gimbal and US$320 + US$320 on the S800 frame?

I too want to see some raw videos from the gimbal.

tpnitro, I have no idea where you got the information from. Perhaps, an assumption from what you read in Chinese forum. Price info is incorrect. The reason behind you starting this thread is beyond me without any confirmation from DJI.

Pricing in China is slightly different than for North America and Europe. For North America-

MSRP- US or countries using USD


Zenmuse 3-axis gimbal $3,470
S800 Spreading Wings $1,610

There will be substantial savings for existing WKM and Ace One owners during pre-order period from March 10 to April 10. The pre-order period is limited to end users and not "Dealer". Official DJI website in English will list the detail within 12 hours.

S800: during preorder period
Not WKM owner $1,370
WKM owner $1,050
Ace One Onwer $1,050

Zenmuse during preorder period
Not WKM owenr $3,150
WKM owner $2,510
WKM Waypoint owner $2,350
Ace One C&G owner $2,350

Package price during pre-order period
WKM + S800: $2,330
WKM + Zenmuse: $3,870
WKM + S800 + Zenmuse: $4,990

There are additional savings; I am listing the most important part here as detail will be on the website soon.

here is an old one done last September.

European dealers using Euro currency-

WKM owner €860
Ace One Onwer €860

Zenmuse during preorder period
Not WKM owner €2,510
WKM owner €2,030
WKM Waypoint owner €1,900
Ace One C&G owner €1,900

Package price during pre-order period
WKM + S800: €1,820
WKM + Zenmuse: €3,050
WKM + S800 + Zenmuse: €3,950

There are additional savings and combos; I am listing the most important part here as detail will be on the website soon.

man, hope that gimbal is really good....

the $3k price is steep...... if you think $1k for controller and $1k for the mount, which would be on par with MKs gear and like the picloc pro.... so I am guessing that the other $1k will be for intellectual property for an amazing, one of a kind gimbal that works nothing like PSO or a normal belt driven mount.

looking forward to seeing videos and pics of it.

pushing the highend of the market and prop/semipro application.

hope to see the 2 axis version soon!

Many guys have no idea about the gimbal or even if they will be able to mount the gimbal on their copter yet they rush for a preorder discount.

Don't even mention the preorder fraud DJI had with WKM.

No wonder they use us as beta testers.

I will not preorder anything without a manual, clear mounting instructions and reviews from unbiased users.

Sydney, I have been using my wookong-m (still at v4.0) since last year so I think I should qualify for the pre-order tho I prefer getting it from distributor. My biggest concern is DJI support being adamant to assist and just reply "please go to your distributor". How will we have confidence to buy/preorder this, will DJI take full responsibility should there be defective items rather than getting the run-around emails?

Can the S800 with Zenmuse easily take a 5D MKIII or RED camera with lenses?
$3000 still sounds well overpriced! Even more if you consider that S800 landig skids are not retractable, what makes the 360* feature of the Zenmuse almost pointless.
Not to mention the crisis of confidence I'm facing with Wookong after losing my 500X and DJI taking no interest in the problem that is now also popping up in the forum from other users.
Next week I will have the Hoverfly products quote I asked for and will be interesting to compare prices and features before deciding what to go for.
Hopefully by the time there will be also good raw videos showing the S800 and Zenmuse in real action.
