The rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor for agricultural drone mapping. The Micasense RedEdge MX is now ready to integrate with DJI SkyPort enabled drones for $11,100.
The new Micasense RedEdge MX captures not just the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes, but also those that generate analytics that are anything but basic. With its low weight, low power requirement, and multiple integration options, the RedEdge MX is one of the most flexible solutions on the market — now in a smaller size and at a lower cost.
Flight time is important. With the Micasense RedEdge-MX, you can fly a 160-acre field (at 400 ft AGL, 70% overlap) in 27 minutes! Choose between various data processing platforms to analyse the raw data collected by the Micasense RedEdge-MX.
The MicaSense RedEdge MX is an advanced, lightweight, multispectral camera optimized for use in small unmanned aircraft systems, and available for use on manned aircraft as well. RedEdge™ provides accurate multi-band data for agricultural remote sensing applications.

The DJI Inspire 2 is the first DJI drone to have the ability to feature not one, but two cameras. The unit has its main camera for capturing footage slung underneath on a three-axis gimbal. Just like the first model, the Inspire 2’s legs lift up, so they won’t block the camera’s view. The camera can freely rotate 360 degrees to capture action in any direction. In addition, there is now a simple, two-axis camera on the front that allows the pilot to always see where the drone is headed. The system is designed for dual operators: one pilot, one director framing the action, each receiving their own live video feed.
If you’re flying solo, the Inspire 2 can help you achieve some tricky shots with the use of computer vision and autonomous navigation. Like other new DJI products, the Inspire 2 now has sensors that allow it to see and avoid obstacles. Vision sensors are placed on the front and bottom of the unit, and infrared sensors sit on top. The unit also features the computer vision system and automatic subject tracking. This means you can lock onto a subject and the camera will rotate to keep them in frame. This happens while the aircraft flies freely in another direction.
Featuring the new CineCore 2.0 system, it can capture 5.2K video at a whopping 4.2Gbps bitrate. To handle all that data, the Inspire 2 has added an onboard SSD. For photographers there is a DNG RAW mode that captures 30-megapixel still images. And it can stream video in broadcast-quality formats for local news crews who want live aerial video from the scene of an unfolding event.
Also powerful enough for industrial customers doing things like infrastructure inspection, site surveys, and security.
