Hello everyone,
I took advantage of the maintenance tasks, I have perform that week on the M600, to make a video and share it.
Hoping that it could help.
(there is as well the replacement of the landing gear calble at the end)



This should be very similar for the Matrice 600 pro.
Have a good day,
Stéphane

Hi Ricci and thank you for the positive feedback !
This new cable remains a mystery for me, it doesn't looks like a noise filter ferrite core.
It works well in the two direction. The plate is very thin.
At one time I believe it was an anti crushing part in order to avoid the cable deterioration (where it is exposed to sharp edge) but the position of the plate doesn't correspond.

What is the "arm inclination holder" (a jig ?) and where could I purchase one?  Thank you

Hi,
I just bought one from the Dji store under the M600 accessories. It's a way to set the negative X axis as you look at the motor arm through the centre of the tube. It counters the rotational torque vector when power is applied.

First off thanks for posting the video. It made my maintenance check easy. When checking the alignment of the propellers; 2 are just under a centimeter off.  I checked the DJI store for the "Arm Inclination Holder" but all I found was the "Aircraft Arm Angle Calibrator," is that the same thing? I've searched through the M600 manual to see how to align the propellers with the arm inclination holder but nothing comes up. I'd appreciate a description on how to use the arm inclination holder or even better a video tutorial.  

Thanks for the help,

Hi,
you will need to get a digital protractor so I found the Iphone compass angle app works well.
place the red adjuster under the motor mount, which gives you a flat surface to measure from,
place the angle finder (iPhone) on the bottom edge inline with the arm to get the inclination above the horizon, I think its 7º or 8º and then turn the angle finder 90º across the arm to get the torque angle 3º on the M600, remember CCW, is the opersit of the CW arm. I have not used the angle adaptor until now because the bottom of the motor housing is flat and you can get the alignment of the iPhone/ angle finder by eye. The adaptor is for 3º torque angle really as you can’t adjust the arm angle because the holes are pre-drilled.
Note: having the craft flat and stable and level will make a difference, so do that first, I used bits of cardboard to wedge the legs until horizontal in the z and Y axis first , still using the phone angle finder.

hope that helps

The motor inclination was not the issue for me.  I found the slight variations in the prop tips when comparing to an adjacent prop tip was with in the props.   When I look down the leading edge of each prop (including two new props)  some of them were not straight.  

I'm going to change over to the E2000 props. I can't find information on the difference between the M600 standard props compared to the E2000 props. I know the E2000 props are better built ,stiffer, lighter etc.

Regards,

Greetings,
The Props are the same, both 2170, 58g, the 2195 are heaver 78g with a 9.5 pitch and a slight profile change.
The blade profiles are the same too. Looks like you had a duffest batch, can you send them back because the props will not take a set even if stored for months with a forced bend. The structure of the long strand material resembles cast Iron and you don’t bend cast iron you just break, it so it looks like it had a moulding issue.

Thanks for the reply. This forum has been quite helpful. I just did 2 flights with nothing strange happening (no restarting app for Matirce connection, no gimbal overload, no GCU problems, ect).
I'm still a bit uncertian on "Arm Inclination Holder;" how is it used and where is it found. As usual I appreciate the help.

Heres the link to the angle gauge: http://store.dji.com/product/mat ... ibrator#/?_k=fue4sk
It fits under the motor housing; however you don’t really need it, just use your iPhone or android angle measuring device app directly on the bottom part of the motor housing perpendicular to the arm.
If people are interested I could make a short vid.

Hi Ricci2, thank you for the trick about the inclination measurement, I think I understand but a video would be very convenient as well.
have a good day

Hi All,
The promised video on the arm calibration has taken me longer than expected due to my propensity for the artistic, it took 30 hours to render a 9, min video on a very rapid Mac Pro.
Just about to save it and upload later today, I will give it its own thread and add it to here also.

The specs for the Matrice 600 batteries says you can charge it by 180W, so it should work. Or you can use your own setup with a different charger as I do, espescially if I need to discharge batteries faster than it can by itself or if I am not able to fly in order to discharge.

Thank you for the video Ricci, that's an ingenious trick.
The M600 is amazing with this cartoon effect :-) Is it made in FinalCutPro ?

Hello Chefdesetoiles,
thank you, I did make this in FCPX and the render was 30 hours but worth the time, I really like this effect, and I think I might use it again.
What part of France are you flying in, I am near Toulouse.

Hi Ricci, I am surprised by this huge render time ! I will test this FCPX effect on my computer, to see how much time does it takes.
I am located near Grenoble. Nice to meet you and pleased to be in contact with an other French M600 owner on that forum ;-)

Nice to meet you too. You're not as surprised as I was with the render time! I thought I had a processor go down but all eight were at 90%. I did however render 4k with the effect. if I would of known the output looked like it did I would have lowered the res.
next time eh!!
