Postby CaptainKid » Thu Nov 28, 2013 3:11 pm

With the recent announcement of the DJI Zenmuse Z15 for Cannon EOS 5D Mark II & III, which is designed for octocopters, we started wondering what flying platform is best suited for the 5D? As it turns out, DJI is planning to release a next generation heavy lift octocopter to pair with the Z15-5D, the DJI Spreading Wings S1000. With an optimized space in the craft for the A2 multirotor autopilot, the S1000 will match the performace of the S800 EVO and become DJI’s flagship craft for aerial photography using DSLR cameras. As information and photos become available we will keep you informed.

Crazy... I wish they would just fish the S800 issues first before releasing an octocopter. And they should also put out tricopter firmware; everybody likes tricopters :)

The legs look to be exactly the same as the S800 EVO. As do the motors and ESCs.
If that's the case, converting an EVO to an S1000 should be just a case of buying 2 x motors, 2 x ESCs, 8 x arms and the centre section.

It could be a relatively cheap upgrade.
DJI S800 EVO - A2, iOSD, X140BS gimbal, 2.4GHz ground station.
DJI Phantom 2 - H3-2D, Immersion vTx, iOSD Mini
DJI F550 - Naza V2, H3-2D, iOSD Mini, Graupner 9x5.

I am ready! I misfired earlier this year and had a guy build me a Hex that I thought would be better and more stable than the s800..............Not The Case! I was completely disappointed. There were so many issues I won't even bother to list them but ultimately the biggest problem was unusable video.
I am ready to bet the farm and get the s1000 as soon as it's available! I'm already selling some Nikon cameras and lenses in order to buy a 5D Mark3!
Is anyone interested in a D700 or D90 Nikon? I'm also selling a Nikkor 70-200 2.8 lens ;)

Why do you just copy / paste part of someone elses reply? You do this in every one of your posts. I'm guessing it's to get the adverts in your signature online.
