DJI – Introducing the A3 and A3 Pro (3 min 25 sec)


Triple Modular Redundancy

The A3 Pro* is equipped with three IMUs and three GNSS units, with additional analytical redundancies for a total of six redundancies. Working together with advanced diagnostic algorithms, if the A3 Pro detects GNSS or IMU unit failure during flight, it seamlessly switches to another unit to maintain reliability and precision.

*Upgrade the A3 to A3 Pro by installing 2 upgrade kits.

Precision Fault-Tolerant Control

The new attitude determination and multi-sensor fusion algorithms improve the A3ís control accuracy. The robust control algorithm enables the A3 and A3 Pro to be adapted to a wide range of aircraft without the need for manual tuning. With a fault-tolerant control system, a hexacopter or octocopter can land safely even in the event of propulsion system failure.

Today, the industrial application of drones requires more than a just flying platform. Thanks to the leading technology of DJI drones, industrial users are able to integrate their DJI drones with third-party modules, develop more functions to meet their needs and make drone operation easier even for industrial use.

In the public safety sector, drones, with their maneuverability and flexibility, can substitute for manpower to get to areas with little access and drop relief supplies such as medicine, food and first-aid tools to a designated point.





The Matrice 600 Series Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit has eight switches or knobs available for mapping eight channels, making the control of non-DJI modules easier and creates an integrated solution for industrial drone application.



Product Overview and Instruction
The Matrice 600 Series Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit is compatible with the DJI Matrice 600 Series Remote Controller and includes eight knobs/switches. More control functions will be available after channel mapping in DJI Assistant 2.

Channel Expansion Module


RC Port Module

1. USB Port
2. CAN Port
3. Micro USB Port
4. HDMI Port
5. Mounting Holes
Tools required: 1.5mm Hex Key and Phillips Screwdriver

Installation: Remove the original RC port module first, insert the PCB of the new module into the back of the remote controller, connect the three flat cables and lock the black buckles.
Then mount the Channel Expansion Module on the handle of the remote controller. Finally, finish channel mapping in DJI Assistant 2 to set up control of third-party modules. (Detailed mounting instructions please refer to the User Guide of Matrice 600 Series Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit.) Below is how the RC looks like when finishing installation:


Channel Mapping Instruction




First, connect M600 Pro to a PC and enter DJI Assistant 2. Click “Tool” on the left of the interface and enter “Function Channel” page to customize the control function of F3-F8 Channel based on personal operation habits and which port(s) on the flight controller is connecting with the third-party module.

Now you can use the Remote Controller Channel Expansion Kit to control third-party modules.

Five aircraft can be controlled at the same time. I just love that.
I also really like the way it automatically goes into course lock mode if you lose a motor or prop.

Too cool.

Yes x3 all the way up to the Ronin-MX. Avg flight time with an x5 is 30-35min.

I will be requesting one of these mounts to throw on the s900 with a3.

Flying the X5R for 30+ Minutes would be very nice.

Can the flight controller of the M100 be upgraded (replaced) to the A3 and D-RTK?

It's not compatible with Manifold or Guidance even though it looks like it uses the same sdk?

Yes but the a3 FC has different inputs versus the matrice FC. I guess with enough hacking you could make it work but it wouldn't be plug and play.

Any pricing on the A3, M600 or Ronin MX?

Also, Can you DJI guys ask about top mount scenarios on the M600 and MX?
