China-based DJI Innovations has branched out from their quadcopter manufacturing to produce a new type of drone, an octocopter. They claim this drone is the ideal choice for professional photographers and videographers who want to capture their HD and 4K cameras from the air.
Octocopter - The Next Step In Drone Technology
This new type of drone is designed to carry heavy equipment and deliver stunning video footage. With eight arms rather than just four, these octocopters can carry heavier payloads and are more capable of handling wind than traditional quadcopters.
Octocopters Have a More Stable Frame Arm Design
Another great feature of this new type of drone is the fact that all eight arms can be completely folded down and tucked away, making it incredibly easy to transport. This also greatly cuts down on pre-flight prep time, which is important for filmmakers who are on the go.
3-Axis Gimbal Stabilization And Multi-Gimbal Support
The DJI Spreading Wings S1000+ review comes with a Zenmuse Z15-5D gimbal that is compatible with a wide range of camera models. This gimbal offers an immense range of motion that allows you to rotate the camera 360 deg.
This allows you to get amazing aerial shots without worrying about the wind and other factors that might cause shakes in your footage. The gimbal also allows you to rotate the camera and tilt it in different directions, giving you a wider range of possible shots than you would be able to achieve with a quadcopter.
