  1. I think you got DJI AirSense wrong. According to DJI, AirSense is an onboard ADS-B receiver that allows the drone operator to be aware of other nearby aircraft which may be broadcasting on ADS-B, not the other way around, as you stated, otherwise AirSense would be an ADS-B transmitter or transceiver.

  2. ADS-B not available, item #4 is RTK positioning. With a ground base unit. FAA will require all aircraft to have ADS-B by 2020 and are currently offering a $500 discount to aircraft owners via their website.

  3. I understand that people want drones to be safer, and to always be coming up with new technology to improve it. However, the AirSense thing is a joke. Regardless of whether it works the way you said it does, which is it broadcasts its location to other aircraft, or it works the way DJI says it does, which is it picks up the transponders from aircraft and notify you that it's nearby, it's still a joke. You're not allowed to fly it above 400 ft. Unless you're standing 10 feet away from the airport, NOTHING commercial should be flying that low, EVER. Every incident of a drone coming near an actual aircraft (whether it was an airplane, helicopter, etc) has been because somebody was doing something stupid and wrong. Do you really think a warning of "there's an aircraft 1000 feet away" is going to make them any less likely to be stupid? Or is it actually more likely to cause the idiots to go "hey, let's go look at the airplane now that I know where it is"?

  4. Morons buy this shit that costs 200 bucks to make in China. Wake up people DJI is fucking you in the ass with every model. Watch when it flus away from you. The Asian cunts won't cover you. They just say pilot error

  5. TO have on my Phantom 4 pro +…..   They advertise it will reach out 4 + miles…. IT WONT… everyone I talk to says the same thing…. I'm lucky most of the time to get 3/4 of a mile.  Get this to perform the way it should, then add some extras…  But, all the things you mentioned would be some great additions….

  6. Pity it's so expensive. It's not a consumer level drone and may well be packed full of tech but unfortunately it has no motor redundancy. For the money, I'd rather have an Octo or hex copter. M200 $7500, m210 $11000, m210 rtk $19500+ all without cams. Ok the rtf comes with the gimbals and usually a premium service from your dealer. Also the batteries will before than $300.

  7. Yup… I agree with everything you stated. You're spot on about everything & the future upgrades too. I can't wait until they're updated & released even though what's available today is pretty cool as is.

  8. The battery is not the biggest single point of failure – the motor/props are because you 4x's the chance of something going wrong with a motor or a prop. If you say that, "When was the last time a prop or motor failed in flight?" then I would ask the same of the battery. The battery doesn't stop working all-of-a-sudden. The reason for the dual battery is NOT redundancy – it's power. The Matrice 200 can run so much equipment onboard that they need the power. I'm sure the packs are serialized to gain more voltage. DJI needs to implement logic in the flight controller such that if a motor/prop fails, then the copter can still be flown to a controlled landing. I'm sure that's next. With people flying the M200 in inclement weather, the two bearings in the motors will be taking a beating. Would love to have current and heat telemetry coming from each motor.
