In a tweet this morning, DJI announces a new Cyber Workhorse to arrive on May 7th, 8:00 am EST. It seems that the Chinese drone maker is taking a page out of Tesla’s playbook, by calling the new Matrice 300 drone a ‘Cyber Workhorse’, referring to Tesla’s ground-breaking new Cyber Truck.
DJI announces new Cyber Workhorse to arrive on May 7th
With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, DJI will not be hosting any kind of launch event for its new Cyber Workhorse, the Matrice 300. Instead, it will simply launch the product online with an update to its website, releasing all the information, features, and specs. We have seen the same with the recent launch of the new DJI Mavic Air 2 drone.
We have reported a number of times already on the expected specs for the new DJI Matrice 300 (M300) quadcopter. The biggest differences with its predecessor are vastly improved design to prevent battery failures in inclement weather, higher body to allow for 360-degree obstacle avoidance, in-house developed dual camera, 30% more expensive, RTK, and ‘underslung propellers’.

DJI tweeted this morning a heavily-stylized image of what seems to be the camera lens at the front and top of the drone body. The image says:
The Cyber Workhorse
This seems to be a reference to the revolutionary Cyber Truck from Tesla. Does this mean that the Matrice 300 will be as groundbreaking for the commercial drones as the Cyber Truck promises to be for the traditional trucks? Luckily, we will not have to wait very long to find out as underneath the title it shows that the release will happen a little more than two days from now on May 7th, 8:00 am EST.
