Matrice 200: Powerful Quadcopter
The Matrice 200 can fly at a maximum speed of 51.4 mph. The Matrice can ascend at more than 11 mph and descend at nearly 7 mph. Because the Matrice’s arms unfold to nearly 35 inches, it is stable in crosswinds up to 22 mph. It can operate at up to 8,200 feet above sea level.

Resistance to Foul Weather, Solid Objects
The Matrice 200 is engineered to IP43 standards. That means it can resist solid objects in excess of 1mm in diameter and water sprayed from all directions, even at a 60-degree angle. The Matrice, which has a hard shell body, is usable in rain. If used over sandy and dusty environments, it should be checked for and cleaned of foreign debris after use. The Matrice 200 can be flown in temperatures as low as -4F.
The Matrice 200 remote controller’s signals extend 4.3 miles. An available FPVLR range extender can increase that up to 3x. Drone Nerds recommends professional installation by its trained technicians unless you have experience installing antenna hardware and firmware. Drone Nerds installation is fast and economical, involving the shipment of the remote controller only.
DJI Go 4 App
The DJI Go 4 flight control app is available for downloading to a smartphone or tablet. It is compatible with any operating system from iOS 9.0 or later, and Android 4.4.0 or later. The program offers Flight Autonomy and obstacle avoidance.
The included remote controller sends and receives signals up to 4.3 miles. The controller connects to a smartphone or tablet, which displays drone movement as seen through the built-in FPV camera, which always points forward. It allows toggling from FPV to camera view. The optional 7.85-inch CrystalSky monitor aids daytime viewing, with a display that’s more than four time brighter than most tablets.
Intelligent Flight Batteries
Matrice runs on twin batteries. TB50 batteries, at 4280 mAh, are standard. For longer flight time, there are optional TB55 batteries, at 7760mAh. Matrice 200 batteries must be charged to within 13 percent of each other or takeoff is blocked. If one battery fails during flight, the pilot receives a warning and should land the drone. The batteries are self-heated, allowing flight in freezing temperatures. Insulation stickers are included.
In addition to overhead infrared sensors for obstacle avoidance, Matrice 200 drones have downward and forward visioning sensors. The sensors add extra protection against striking obstacles during inspections, especially in tight or intricate environments.
Onboard, Mobile SDK
Every Matrice 200 drone has an onboard software development kit. This allows development of industry-specific programs. Compatible platforms are Windows, Linux, Embedded Systems STM 32 and ROS. Mobile SDK allows development of mobile apps for Matrice 200 drones on compatble iOS or Android pones and tablets.
Intelligent Flight Features
The M200 Series drones utilize computer vision for intelligent flight modes to help more efficiently collect data. These features are available for multiple DJI sensors, enabling advanced shots such as zooming while tracking an object:
- Spotlight – to lock the camera onto a subject during flight while the aircraft moves freely
- Point of Interest – to circle around an object for a smooth orbit
- Tripod – to fine-tune position and angle for position framing and safe navigation in narrow environments
- ActiveTrack – to follow a person or object while keeping it in frame
DJI Pilot & DJI FlightHub
The DJI Pilot app is compatible with DJI FlightHubTM, a web-based software package allowing teams to share real-time data with offsite parties over the Internet. This includes remote emergency situation control rooms keeping track of first response teams or asset management centers inspecting global infrastructure networks. In an easy-to-use control center, DJI FlightHub lets users plan flights with multiple drones and keep track of each aircraft’s status. An offsite control room can simultaneously monitor live feeds and can remotely control gimbal and camera. The software enables managers to plan flights in advance using waypoints and dynamic geofencing.
