The Ronin-MX from DJI is dual-use gimbal suitable both for mounting on the Matrice 600 aerial platform as well as deployment closer to the ground. Improving over the Ronin-M, it features magnesium construction to yield high rigidity while keeping the weight down. The gimbal is suitable for cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs weighing up to 10 pounds. Out of the box it supports two-operator operation, and includes a radio controller (transmitter) for the camera operator. There is also an optional Thumb Controller (available separately) for solo operation. When installed on the Matrice 600 aircraft, the gimbal can be controlled via the DJI GO app. An included universal mounting adapter allows it to be adapted for use with jibs, car mounts, and various other types of camera support equipment. There is also a handlebar for handheld use.

Built to Perform
Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon when mounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the Matrice 600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI's flight controller. When attached to vehicles, it connects to an optional GPS module that allows it to stabilize actively for a smoother shot
360° Freedom of Movement
A slip ring allows the Ronin-MX to rotate 360° continuously when mounted to aircraft or vehicles, opening up more creative options. This is further enhanced by an increase in tilt-axis range (compared to the Ronin-M) from 90° straight down and beyond to 135°. Popular features of the Ronin series, such as the three modes of operation and SmoothTrack, are also present, giving film makers a range of creative angles and movements
Wireless Control and Transmission
The Ronin-MX is compatible with Lightbridge 2, providing long-range HD video transmission from the air to the ground from up to 3.1 miles away. If combined with the separately available DJI Focus and Focus Expansion Module, focus or aperture can also be pulled remotely with a twist of the wrist. An optional Remote Start/Stop add-on provides the ability to control shooting on a range of airborne cameras
App Control
Using DJI Assistant and the dedicated Assistant app for iOS and Android allows complete customization of the Ronin-MX and its behavior. If connected to Lightbridge 2, the DJI GO app can be used to control the gimbal and see an HD live feed from the camera

System Design

Refined Balance
A redesigned structure moves the Ronin-MX battery from the back to the front. This centers the weight of the camera, minimizing instability when flying directly forwards. It also dramatically increases the Ronin's agility and ability to handle rapid movements or high-G situations
Magnesium Construction
Built extensively of lightweight magnesium, the Ronin-MX weighs just 6.1 lb. This lightness allows it to be mounted to the Matrice 600, even when equipped with cameras as advanced as the RED EPIC, and to vehicles, with a minimum impact on vehicle handling


Strengthened Motors and ESCs
A combination of stronger motors and ESCs makes the Ronin-MX 50% more powerful than the Ronin-M. This additional stiffness and power allows the system to better withstand wind resistance, when mounted to moving vehicles and aircraft, as well as more rapid movements
External Camera Battery
Cameras such as the RED EPIC need an external battery for power. A dedicated position designed for an optional battery plate provides an easy, cable-free mounting point for a second DJI Intelligent Battery. This provides two 12V D-Tap power sources for powering cameras and accessories
Intelligent Batteries
Ronin-MX batteries offer a battery life of up to three hours. Over-charge and over-depletion protection are built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the DJI GO app
Built-In Power Distribution
A dedicated power distribution box keeps wiring to a minimum while providing power to essential accessories. Two regulated 12V D-Taps, one 500mAh full-size USB connector, and a DJI Lightbridge connector enable connectivity and power to nearly everything a filmmaker might need


Solo Mode with Optional Thumb Controller
The separately available Ronin Wireless Thumb Controller makes controlling the Ronin-MX easy and intuitive, enabling the capture of shots that would otherwise be impossible for a single operator
Second Operator Control
A wireless 2.4 GHz remote controller is included with the Ronin-MX enabling a second operator to remotely control pan, tilt, roll, and other functions
Three Operation Modes
Upright Operation Mode
Upright Mode allows the gimbal to be flipped over so the camera can be operated closer to eye level without straining to lift the gimbal. This can be used in various situations, such mounting on the top of the vehicle

Underslung (Suspended) Operation Mode
Suspended Operation Mode is the standard operation mode for Ronin-M. Low slung, close to the ground, or simply holding the gimbal in front of you offers stabilized handheld footage. This mode would also be used when mounted the gimbal on a flying platform such as a multirotor RC helicopter

Briefcase Mode
When a slimmer gimbal profile is needed – such as when moving through doorways or narrow paths – Briefcase Mode is ideal. It allows the gimbal to be held to the side and close to the legs, much like a briefcase

Additional Features

SmoothTrack Technology
Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology is designed to ensure the Ronin-MX translates movements into smooth camera angle changes. SmoothTrack settings, from speed to deadband to acceleration, are fully customizable. A "Single Axis Follow Mode" enables two axes to be locked while SmoothTrack guides the camera along only one axis of motion
Universal Mounting
Mount the Ronin-MX to aircraft using a specially designed mounting plate. A separate universal Quick Release system that doubles as a vibration-dampening system allows the Ronin-MX to be connected to everything from jib to tripod and anything in between. This plate isolates the Ronin-MX from unwanted vibrations coming from the platforms it is mounted to
Short Range Wireless Transmission
On the ground, the separately available SRW-60G allows film makers to see the image from the camera without running cables up the Ronin-MX

Note: The SRW-60G is not permitted for use on aerial platforms

    Ronin-MX 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Major over site, but works well overall. The Ronin M and Ronin MX share many of the same characteristics; however, the Ronin MX's differences are particularly for a certain clientele, and not for most. The 360 degree axis and 90 degree down tilt isn't needed unless mounted on a drone, car mount, or something similar, so if you want that then awesome. It really doesn't support cameras that are bigger to any noticeable degree, it's a very slight change that doesn't excite. Overall I would say it's a good buy and you should do it regardless what you need it for, EXCEPT FOR ONE THING YOU NEED TO BE AWARE OF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please Please PLEASE listen when I mention the over site, for it is actually a pretty big deal, as I came to find out over a few days. The most noticeable change on the design would be the overhead battery attachment that protrudes over any given lens. As I came to find out, wide angle lenses do NOT work when trying to shoot up, for you have a huge battery in the image on top frame. The 35-16mm at full 16mm and the 14mm don't work on some shots....which I mind you are primary lens to be used with a 3 axis gimbal in many circumstances. Moving the camera forward in attempts to move it away from the battery will be challenging when balancing the Ronin correctly, and shooting up and low requires some serious thought; in which most cases ends up failing. I would give this many more stars if this was something that one learned to overcome through experience such as Glidecam operation; however this is simply a poor design.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not Work with Red cameras I highly DO NOT recommend this Gimbal if you plan on using a Red Epic or Weapon. Even if you buy the Red accessory kit (which should be included in the package but is not), it still cannot handle the camera size and weight. Mounting and balancing just does not work. This is very shadily advertised by DJI as a Red camera gimbal but it is the farthest form the truth, in reality it just seemed like a Ronin-m to me with an extra battery, which did I mention gets in the your shot with wide angle lenses while pointing down. I do believe there will be some big back lash after more Red and larger camera body users like the Arri Mini (which I have also seen videos on youtube that it wont even fit on the MX) get their hands on these. Please save yourself the hassle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for C100 Mark 2 I purchased this item for my C100 Mark 2. I bought the extension rods as well from DJI and the camera was wedged in so tight it was hard to work with. The manual says it works with the C100, but I guess not the Mark 2. I returned and will be purchasing the Ronin instead. I'm sure this is a good product, but it just didn't work for my camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome piece of gear Allow time to learn how to use it! I'm surprised to see so many bad rating when the product was released a few weeks ago. I have one of the first units delivered by B&H, and so far, it has worked just fine. As always, DJI products are VERY polished when it comes to materials and design. This is a really good looking piece of gear. FIRST: If you are expecting to open the box and get your camera installed in 1 minute, you better work on your patience skills, because it ain't happen. I've seen many people frustrated with this and the Ronin M. Well, guess what, it takes some time and exploration to find the right tune for your camera, your shooting style and your needs. Please don't book a shoot and expect it to work if you haven't played with it. SECOND: For those who complain about it coming without a case... come on! Really? Check the What's in the box tab before you buy. This kind of comments just make me think who writes is just an amateur. This product comes with all what you need. However, you can add some accessories such as the thumb controller (Great Add On BTW) or the Alexa/Red adapters. Who shoots with Alexa or Red and complains about accessories!? THIRD: No, the product isn't perfect, and neither is any of the products we all shoot with. However, I really value the effort and love that DJI is putting on their products. Their goods are affordable, functional and look and feel good. It is REALLY UNFAIR to take that for granted. FORTH: If you decide to purchase, be aware you are not buying a stick. Electronic gimbals are awesome pieces of gear, but you have to play, explore and fine the right tune. Take your time, play with it, have fun and practice over and over. That's the best way to make the most out of your investment. If it shakes and gets crazy... Keep calm, play with the settings and tighten all screws. It is a matter of patience. DJIKeep up with the innovation and hard work! :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's pretty okay I'm getting pretty decent results from my MX. However I must say that in the manual it states that it works with cameras that it DOES NOT work with. I was able to squeeze the C100 in, but only after buying and affixing attachment rods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent stabilizer It's a great stabilizer system, it comes with a remote controller and a stand. For that price is really hard to find something similar. You do have to balance it right so it don't become noise trying to balance the weight with the motors. It works better if you have lenses with stabilizer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Really Expected More From DJI Fundamentally this product is flawed. It's not that it isn't a good product, it's that it is meant and marketed to be so much more than it actually is. To put it in perspective, I was more happy with the older not as good Ronin M than I was with this one. First up, what is with that battery placement of the battery? It gets in your wide shots!! Second, why can't they get the motors right? The reason I returned mine was because I couldn't get the motors to stop vibrating. And yes, I updated multiple times, messed with the sensitivities and settings and nothing changed it. Third, The top stabilizing bracket that mounts to the flash hotshoe is confusing. Overall, I'm just disappointed and expected so much more after being really pleased with just the Ronin M. Returning this one and stepping down to the M.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waiting 2 months for nothing.. literaly nothing in return. I bought this from DSLR Pro... super great guys but this product should be pulled from every counter. This has cost me a day of production. Literally 7 hours over because it simply does not work. The Ronin is great... This new Ronin MX has major major issues. It cannot take the small weight of a dragon completely undressed. No matter who we called no one could actually use theirs. I rented from a guy that had the same issues and sent his back. This plastic version of a decent ronin is a complete waste of time and money.
