Warranty Details

What is the protection level of the Zenmuse L1?
The L1 has an IP44 rating according to the IEC60529 standard. This means that it is protected against solid objects over 1mm in size and against water splashed from all directions. The protection level is not permanent however and will decrease over time due to device wear.
  To ensure the highest levels of protection:
  • Before installing, make sure that the interface and surface of the gimbal are dry;
  • Before use, make sure that the gimbal is firmly installed on the drone and the SD card protective cap is clean, free of foreign objects, and closed;
  • Before opening the SD card protective cap, wipe the surface of the drone clean."
What aircraft is the L1 compatible with?
The L1 is compatible with the M300 RTK. Before using, please upgrade the firmware of the drone and remote controller to the latest version.
Which apps are compatible with the L1?
The L1 currently supports only the Android version of the DJI Pilot App.

What is the L1's auxiliary vision sensor used for?
The vision sensor provides altitude data. This means that if the GNSS signal temporarily fails, the aircraft's accuracy will not be affected for up to 60 seconds.
What is the L1's RGB camera used for?
The RGB camera of the L1 provides basic functions for taking photos and recording videos and provides real-time color information for the point cloud data during the scanning process. This allows the L1 to output true color point clouds and reality models. 
Note that Lidar scanning and video recording cannot work simultaneously.
