Leaked photos show new foldable DJI Matrice drone. M30 or M400 RTK?

Earlier this morning, these photos were leaked online showing what appears to be a new foldable DJI Matrice drone. Possibly called the M30 or M400 RTK.

The new leaked photos were widely spread on social media.

Photos of a foldable DJI Matrice drone

The series of photos shows what seems to be a foldable DJI Matrice drone. Almost a mix between the recently released and the DJI M300 RTK. Foldable and ‘compact’ but also clearly modeled after the M300. Could be the best of both worlds really.

The photos show the new DJI Matrice drone has two batteries sliding in from the back as is now customary with all new DJI drones.

At the front, we see what seems to be a 3-axis mechanically stabilized camera, possibly outfitted with a telelens combined with a wide-angle lens to offer an extended digital zoom option, as well as a thermal camera.

There is a chance that the payload can be swapped out. If you look closely, you’ll see that the drone itself also has a wide-angle lens and camera at the front top of the body.

The new foldable DJI Matrice drone will seemingly offer obstacle avoidance in all six directions.

Different folding mechanism on new DJI Matrice drone

The way the legs unfold is different on this new foldable DJI Matrice drone. The front legs seem to swing outward (no rotation it seems), whereas the rear legs only seem to swing outwards.

The only other place we have seen a similar unfolding mechanism is the one leaked photo of the soon-to-be-released DJI Mini 3.

The original DJI Matrice drones have always been very large and hard to travel with. It would make sense for DJI to take what it has learned over the years with the various DJI Mavic drones and apply similar folding technology to the larger, commercial DJI Matrice series.

One of the reasons the DJI Mavic Enterprise drones have been so successful is because they are compact and easy to take with you. Offering improved portability for the DJI Matrice series will be the next big step for this platform.

We are very excited to see this new foldable DJI Matrice come to the market and we think that many and crews will be as well.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. Will this be the new DJI Matrice 400 RTK or might DJI have a new name in store for us, like the Matrice 30.

The new foldable DJI Matrice drone might very well work with the DJI RC Plus that we recently saw.
