Our take on the DJI Matrice 210 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The DJI Matrice 210 has a durable, weather-resistant chassis and customizable payload configurations (cameras not included).
This customizable drone is all business
The rugged and adaptable Matrice 210 is designed for commercial use. Its tough, lightweight chassis is rated IP43, meaning its inner workings are protected from objects over 1mm in diameter and direct sprays of water.
This drone has a payload capacity of 5.07 lbs., and assembles easily so you can get to work quickly. The Matrice 210 comes with two TB50 batteries, which keep the drone in the air for up to 27 minutes of flight time.
Intelligent flight modes
Intelligent flight modes give you autopiloting options, so you can focus on what your camera is seeing.
Activetrack keeps a moving subject perfectly framed so you don't lose track of them — incredibly useful for search and rescue or wildlife tracking jobs.
Point of interest mode makes your drone orbit a stationary object — like a communications tower or wind turbine — so you can conduct a thorough visual inspection.
The drone comes with the professional-grade Cendence controller, and a large, bright CrystalSky high brightness monitor. You'll also find two rechargeable flight batteries and a charging hub. You want more? There's also an external GPS kit, a carrying case, and a 16GB memory card.
Adaptable payload configurations
The Matrice 210 is versatile, with multiple payload configurations:
Built-in safety measures make it easy to keep people and property safe while you fly. There's a dedicated FPV (first person view) camera that lets the pilot see where he's going, no matter where the payload camera is pointed. FlightAutonomy uses information from front vision sensors, downward vision and ultrasonic sensors, and an upper infrared sensor to avoid in-flight obstacles. DJI AirSense automatically provides drone pilots with real-time information about nearby manned aircraft.
Expand and customize
Enterprising drone operators are finding new uses for unmanned aerial vehicles all the time. The Matrice 210 is customizable, so you can develop features you need. The onboard SDK (software development kit) lets you integrate an onboard computer to analyze flight data, or connect to third party sensors. Mobile SDK lets you develop personalized mobile apps that make flight planning and on-site data collection work for your specific needs.

Why Shop With Us?10 Reasons.
Robust Flight Autonomy w/ Obstacle Avoidance: The DJI Matrice 210 includes a robust Flight Autonomy system with a total of 7 sensors. Its Forward Vision System is capable of detecting obstacles up to 30 meters ahead, while the upward facing infrared sensors can sense obstacles within a 5-meter range. A downward facing vision positioning system enables precision hovering and landing. In addition, high-performance motors paired with 17" propellers ensure stable flight in strong winds.
- Vision System: The Vision System enables precision hovering indoors or outdoor environments where GPS signal is not available.
- Obstacle Sensing w/ Assisted Breaking: Powered by the Forward Vision System, the aircraft is able to actively break when obstacles are detected in front. Obstacle Sensing works best when lighting is adequate and the obstacle is clearly textured. The aircraft must fly at no more than 31mps to allow for sufficient braking distance.
- Infrared Sensing System: The Infrared Sensing System can only used to avoid large, diffuse, and reflective obstacles (reflectivity >10%). You should be mindful of blind spots of the Infrared Sensing System.
Note: The performance of the Vision and Infrared Sensing System is affected by the surface being flown over. Ultrasonic sensors may not be able to accurately measure distances when operating above sound-absorbing materials and the camera may not function correctly in the suboptimal environments.
Adaptable Aerial Imaging: The Matrice 210 is compatible with the following gimbal cameras - Zenmuse X4S, Zenmuse X5S, Zenmuse Z30, Zenmuse XT, Zenmuse XT2, SLANTRANGE 3PX, and Sentera AGX710 (all sold separately). A single downward gimbal bracket, dual downward gimbal bracket and single upward gimbal bracket are all sold separately.
Note: No gimbal camera or mounting bracket is included with the Matrice 210 and must be purchased separately.
IP43 Protection: IP43 protection rating means that the DJI Matrice 210 can be protected from objects greater than 1 millimeter, and from water spray less than 60 degrees vertically. The IP43 protection rating can protect the Matrice 210 when used in adverse environments with dust particles or light showers.
Note: The protection rating may reduce or fail in case of folded-frame arms, exposed ports as a result of open cover, loose weatherproof shell top plugs, and if the aircraft is broken. The unit's product warranty does not cover water damage.
Flight Modes: The DJI Matrice 210 offers the following Flight modes to choose from - P Mode (Positioning), S Mode (Sport), A Mode (Attitude), and T Mode (Tripod).
- P Mode (Positioning): The aircraft utilizes the GPS and the Forward/Downward Vision Systems to locate itself, automatically stabilize, and navigate between obstacles. Intelligent Flight Modes are available in this mode.
- S Mode (Sport): The aircraft uses GPS for positioning. As Forward and Downward Vision Systems are disabled, the aircraft will not be able to sense and avoid obstacles when in Sport Mode. The drone can reach a maximum speed of 51.4 mph in Sport Mode. Intelligent Flight Modes are not available.
- A Mode (Altitude): When neither the GPS nor the Vision Systems are available, the aircraft will only use its barometer for positioning to control the altitude. Intelligent Flight Modes are not available.
- T Mode (Tripod): Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4mph provides precision control for fine framing and indoor flying.
Intelligent Flight Modes: The DJI Matrice 210 offers a variety of Intelligent Flight modes that make piloting and aerial photography even easier.
- TapFly: You can simply tap on the CrystalSky or mobile device screen to fly in the designated direction without using the remote controller. The aircraft will automatically avoid obstacles it sees or brake and hover in front of them, provided there is sufficient light between (<300 lux) and (>10,000 lux).
- ActiveTrack: ActiveTrack allows you to mark and track a moving object on the CrystalSky or mobile device screen. The aircraft will automatically avoid obstacles in its flight path. The aircraft will automatically identify and trace bicycles and other vehicles, people, and animals using different tracking strategies for each. No external tracking device is required. ActiveTrack is only supported by the Zenmuse X4S or X5S and is not supported by the Z30, XT, or XT2. ActiveTrack is also not supported with dual downward gimbals.
- Spotlight Pro: Spotlight Pro is a powerful new tracking mode that allows a single pilot to capture complex, dramatic images. The gimbal will automatically adjust to keep the camera pointed at the subject. Lock on a subject in Spotlight Pro mode and the gimbal will capture the locked subject regardless of the directions that the aircraft flies.
Return-to-Home (RTH): During RTH, the Matrice 210 is able to collect information about the environment and automatically plan the best path back home. Being able to detect obstacles 200m away, it also restores communication faster with the remote controller during RTH after losing signal, so as to make RTH safe and successful. The aircraft will automatically return-to-home if is senses a low battery or loss connection between the controller. You can also manually trigger the Return-to-Home function.
Dual Battery System: The DJI Matrice 210 utilizes a dual battery system and automatically heats batteries when flying in sub-zero temperatures. You have the option to use the included TB50 batteries for improved portability or the larger TB55 batteries (sold separately) to properly support a dual gimbal configuration and increase flight times. The Matrice 210 continuously checks battery status and will notify you through the DJI GO 4 app on your smart device if a battery malfunctions. In this case, please land the aircraft immediately.
