DJI Matrice 200
An industrial-level quadcopter with the option of dual camera mounting, the Matrice 200 can be highly customized by users, depending on their needs. Because of that, videos go into considerable detail. Separate installation videos focus on mounting an upward gimbal, a dual downward gimbal, and the Zenmuse XT thermal camera with adaptive ring. Firmware upgrade videos demonstrate aircraft operations, the remote controller, and the XT2 thermal camera. Explore use of the RTK positioning tool, and observe how to link the remote controller and aircraft. There’s also a video demonstration of the FlightHub management tool and another on the MSX management program for the XT2 thermal camera.
If a “No Connection” prompt appears on the remote controller’s screen, and the aircraft’s rear indicators flash yellow quickly, then the remote controller needs to be linked with the aircraft.
Linking via DJI Pilot: Launch DJI Pilot and enter the Manual Flight Mode. Tap the remote controller icon on the top menu bar, then enter the remote controller’s settings page. Tap “Remote Controller Linking”. After confirming, the remote controller’s screen will prompt a “Connecting…” notification and make beeping sounds, indicating that the remote controller is ready to be linked.
The remote controller will be ready to be link for 60 seconds. Open the port cover on the rear of the aircraft and press the Linking button. Then the Linking button’s indicator will flash red and green alternatively. When the indicator glows solid green, the linking is successful. Now you can check the flight parameters on the remote controller’s screen.
Linking via the remote controller buttons: Press the remote controller’s C1, C2, and Record button simultaneously, then the remote controller will enter the linking state. When the remote controller makes beeping sounds, press the Linking button on the rear of the aircraft. Wait until the linking is finished. If the linking fails, please check if the remote controller's and aircraft's firmware has been updated to the latest version.
