The DJI Spreading Wings S1000+ Octocopter Bundle with A3 Flight Controller and Lightbridge from B&H is an aerial platform designed for imaging an other professional applications that require carrying a sizable camera payload. In addition to the basic aircraft, the bundle features the Lightbridge 3 flight controller. This GNSS-based system provides precise position that enable advanced autopilot features. Additionally, it integrates with DJI's Zenmuse Z15 and Ronin-MX gimbals for unified control and powering. To provide live HD monitoring from the ground as well as additional app-based functionality, Lightbridge is included. Featuring ground- and air-end components, Lightbridge supports 1080p video transmission with OSD and has a 2.4 GHz radio with a range of up to a mile.

  • DJI Spreading Wings S1000+ Professional Octocopter
    Featuring a removable upper center board for easier installation of flight electronics as well as a redesigned power distribution system, the Spreading Wings S1000+ Professional Octocopter from DJI continues the legacy of the original S1000. The S1000+ is a collapsible, eight-propeller RC helicopter designed to carry a DSLR or similar-sized camera. With a 24-pound maximum takeoff weight, it is intended to serve as a camera platform, allowing professional videographers and photographers to add dynamic aerial shots to their productions. It is designed to work with either the A2 or WooKong-M flight control systems, which are available separately.

    For stabilizing and moving a camera in flight, the S1000 is compatible with any of the Zenmuse Z15 series gimbals. The airframe features a dampened gimbal mounting bracket with a low mounting position. Additionally, the landing gear can be raised, allowing an unobstructed 360° of visibility.

    The S1000 is designed to power 6S lithium-polymer batteries. It will support capacities between 10,000 and 20,000mAh, and requires a discharge rate of at least 15C. With a 15,000mAh battery and a take-off weight of 21 pounds, it is estimated to fly approximately 15 minutes.

    Note: Assembly is required and a flight control system is not included.

    What's New for the S1000+

    Removable Upper Center Board
    The upper center board can be removed for easier installation of the A2 or WooKong-M flight control system, an iOSD module, the Lightbridge Air Unit, and other electronic components
    Redesigned Power Distribution
    New for the S1000+, the power distribution layout has be redesigned to make it simpler and enhance safety. Gold-plated metal bearings with a special screw design secure the power cords, helping to ensure cables will not come loose during flight


    Take-Off Weight and Flying Time
    Weighing approximately 9.7 pounds, the S1000+ is able to support a take-off weight of up to 24 pounds. This means it can handle camera payloads up to the approximate size of a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. With a 21 pound take-off weight and a 15,000mAh battery it features an estimated flying time of approximately 15 minutes
    Propulsion System
    At the end of each prop arm is a 40A electronic speed controller (ESC). When combined with its 4114 pro motor and high performance 1552 folding propellers, it is capable of a maximum thrust of 5.5 pounds

    Camera Mounting

    Low Gimbal Mounting Position
    The S1000+ supports all of DJI's Zenmuse Z15 series gimbals for camera stabilization and control. The frame keeps the gimbal low, using a specially designed bracket. Additionally, the landing gear retract in flight so that full camera panning is possible
    Damping Design
    The gimbal and battery are mounted on the same bracket, with dampers placed between the bracket and the frame. This is designed to significantly reduce high-frequency vibrations to help make shots clearer and sharper. The battery tray's position also makes it more stable and accessible for mounting and dismounting

    Airframe Design

    Foldable Propellers and Collapsible Frame
    All eight arms can be completely folded down and the 1552 folding propeller can be tucked away, minimizing the S1000+'s size for transportation. To fly, simply lift the frame arms up, lock them in place with the red clips, and power up the system
    Efficient V-Type Mixer
    The mixer in the S1000+ is designed to provide large amounts of propulsion while maintaining power efficiency. Acting in tandem with the flight control system, it will work to keep the aircraft stable and flying even after the loss of a rotor. Integrated into the center frame is a power distribution system using DJI's proprietary coaxial cable connector

    The mixer is designed to be easier to install or replace by eliminating the need for soldering. All frame arms as well as the retractable landing gear are made from carbon fiber, to help ensure a low weight profile and high structural stability
    Inclined Prop Arm
    Each prop arm features 8° inversion and a 3° inclination, making the aircraft more stable when rolling and pitching, and at the same time more flexible when rotating
    Sparkproof Plug
    The main power cord uses an AS150 sparkproof plug for positive and a XT150 plug for negative to prevent accidentally mixing up polarities, and preventing short circuits that could damage sensitive electronics
  • DJI A3 Flight Controller for Multi-Rotor UAS
    Optimized for professional and cinematography applications, the A3 Flight Controller from DJI provides navigation and stabilization to quad-, hexa-, and octo-rotor aircraft. The system features GNSS, which means it can use satellites systems such as GPS or GLONASS in combination with a compass to provide precise positional data. The A3 can be used in combination with DJI's Lightbridge 2 system to provide a high-quality video downlink from a gimbal-mounted camera. Ground station software enables features, such as telemetry monitoring and route planning, as well as provides a flight simulator (additional ground station hardware required). It features support for DJI gimbals, including the Zenmuse Z15 line and the Ronin-MX. Mobile and Onboard SDKs allows developers to program custom solutions tailored to industry-specific use cases. For triple redundancy, the A3 can be updated to the A3 Pro by adding two upgrade kits.


    Fault-Tolerant Control
    The attitude determination and multi-sensor fusion algorithms improve the A3's 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
    Optional D-RTK GNSS
    The A3 supports separately available D-RTK GNSS for centimeter-level positioning accuracy. Using dual antennas, its heading reference is more accurate than a compass sensor, and it is able to withstand magnetic interference from metal structures

    A3 Pro Upgraded Path

    You can upgrade the A3 to an A3 Pro by adding two upgrade kits (available separately)
    Triple Modular Redundancy
    The A3 Pro upgrade gives the system 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

    Ground Station

    Ground Station Software
    Supporting both touch screen and mouse and keyboard, the redesigned Ground Station can support mission design, for use in a range of industry applications. Users can simultaneously manage and monitor the mission implementation of multiple aircraft and plan formation flights. Ground Station is compatible with the Matrice 100 and Matrice 600, Phantom 4, and DATALINK hardware (all available separately)
    Optional DATALINK PRO
    The separately available DATALINK PRO operates at a frequency below 1 GHz and works over a range of up to 1.2 miles. It integrates seamlessly with the A3 and D-RTK as well as the Ground Station, which allows up to five aircraft to be controlled from one base station. A broadcast mode lets the base station broadcast data to 32 mobile devices, and a duplex mode keeps data locked to one device

    Assistant Software

    DJI Assistant 2 allows you to set up a variety of DJI aerial systems. A built-in flight simulator ensures that complex moves can be practiced in advance without risking the aircraft, and a completely overhauled Ground Station supports touch screen interaction, offline mission design, route planning, and even formation flight for multiple aircraft

    SDK Support

    With Onboard and Mobile SDKs, custom-built applications can access flight data, and control the aircraft, gimbal, and camera. Dedicated hardware interfaces, including CAN and API ports, allow industry experts to craft their ideal aerial system by adding actuators and sensors
  • DJI Lightbridge 2 Full HD Video Downlink with OSD and Control
    DJI's Lightbridge 2 is an all-in-one solution that combines video downlink (complete with OSD), aircraft control, gimbal control, and video monitoring in a unified system. It breaks into two key components: the first, an air unit that includes connections for select Zenmuse Z15 gimbals as well as connection for an A2 or a WooKong-M flight controller; the second, a special transmitter (radio controller) that incorporates the Lightbridge ground unit (a separate module on previous systems). The controller features mini-HDMI and 3G-SDI video outputs for connecting an HD display and a USB port for connecting a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. The controller provides dedicated camera and gimbal controls for convenient operation, while more advanced features can be accessed via the DJI GO mobile app.
    Integrated Design
    To simplify both installation and setup, Lightbridge 2 features just two key components: an air unit and a special transmitter (radio controller) that features the ground unit built in
    Dedicated Controls
    In addition to standard control sticks for piloting, the remote provides direct access to key functions. It has dedicated hardware controls for photo and video capture, gimbal pitch control, Return To Home, as well as customizable buttons
    App-Based Control and Monitoring
    Use the DJI GO app to control your camera, access intelligent navigation settings, and receive a live HD view of what the camera sees, all on your paired mobile device. Flight information including current status, full telemetry, location, heading, and more is displayed and updated live
    Multiple Output Options
    A combination of 3G-SDI, USB, and mini-HDMI ports enables the controller to be connected to a variety of display devices – TVs, field monitors, FPV goggles, mobile devices, and more. You can even output video to several devices simultaneously by using a combination of ports
    Dual Video Stream
    Lightbridge 2 can transmit video from two cameras simultaneously: the main camera used to capture video and photographs, and a second camera showing the First Person View (FPV). Output a picture-in-picture view via mini-HDMI or 3G-SDI to a TV or other external display, where the FPV is layered with the main camera view. The views and controls are completely independent so that the gimbal control will not affect the pilot view or the aircraft's navigation, and vice versa
    Built-In Battery
    An internal, rechargeable 6,000 mAh LiPo battery lets you fly longer than AA-powered alternatives and simplifies charging
    Dynamic Radio System
    To help ensure uninterrupted transmission, a high-speed processor chooses the best channel and bandwidth based on current distance and presence of any sources of potential interference. Additionally, when using the DJI GO app, you can choose to maximize video quality or focus on lower latency as well as manually change to your desired transmission channel
