The Align M480 will be the first professional quadcopter from Align company, they will show us Align’s ability in multicopters. This M480 comes with landing skid that is foldable, with 3 axis gopro brushless gimbal.
The hovering time will be as long as 20 minutes, and the performance will be better than dji phantom, just like Align’s other products, high quality with acceptable price, the price is unknown yet though.
With the development of the multicopter market, dji has won a big market share with it’s dji phantom and phantom vision, also with it’s s1000,s900,s800 evo in more professional market. Now they will have to face their most powerful competitor-align m480, maybe the multicopter market will change a bit too.
As long as we can see, the M480 adopts Align’s brushless motors, thus with good efficiency, power saving. As for gimbal, it adopts G2 3 axis brushless gimbal which will compatible with gopro hero 3 action camera. It also comes with APS-M flight controller which has high performance and sensitivity, it supports different multicopters and different control mode, all these will be a big chanllenge for dji.
As FPV addicts, we have been waiting for align’s joining, we hope they will be doing as good as they are in rc helicopters, also we believe these will bring notivation to this new industry, will provide us with more & better choices.
