Today we are going to walk you through the steps on how to get a pilot cam installed on the matrice600 pro.
Why would you need a FPV Pilot camera?
Unlike the Inspire 2, the Matrice 600 Pro doesn’t come with a Pilot Camera, making it a challenge for the pilot to see where the drone is going through the screen, every time the payload camera is being controlled separately.
Luckily, there is a way to install a pilot camera on the M600 Pro and we at SkyStance are going to teach you how to do it.
How to choose a FPV/First Person View camera for the M600 Pro.
You need to pick an FPV camera that has a very low latency so that you would get accurate live video feed on your screen. We chose the RunCam Swift, a small, lightweight, FPV camera commonly used for drone racing because of its low latency and decent quality video.
Installing the Camera
First, you have to carefully remove the top canopy by unscrewing one of the A3 Pro GPS antennas and four more screws around the canopy.
Second step is to route the wire harness of your pilot camera inside the frame. Make sure the wires will be hidden and protected within frame and the canopy. Then connect the signal, power, and ground wires from your camera to the AV Input on the Lightbridge 2. (note that you might need to make your own wire)
Third step is to find a way to mount your FPV pilot camera to the front of your aircraft while making sure it’s close enough for the wires to reach.
Fourth step is to put back the top canopy with the same 4 screws and then screwing on the A3
Pro GPS Antenna. Make sure the screws are tightened correctly to avoid losing them.
And the for Final Step, all you have to do is power up the M600 Pro and see if the video is perfectly working by going to the DJI GO App.
