DJI Introduces Master Wheels and Force Pro at NAB

DJI has introduced Master Wheels and Force Pro that offer professional gimbal control solutions for every type of filmmaker and scenario.

Built to deliver precise gimbal movements, DJI said the new products offer filmmakers reliable tools that help capture complex shots with ease while adding a cinematic quality to any scene. Master Wheels and Force Pro control DJI’s Ronin 2 and Ronin-S gimbals, expanding the creative possibilities for cinematographers of varying experience levels.

Master Wheels is a professional level, high-precision gimbal control system that applies a three-wheeled form to control pan, tilt and roll. Smooth, stable and precise movements create a professional look, while an easy to use and functional design make filming complex footage simpler.

Force Pro is a motion sensing system that uses DJI’s remote-control technology to precisely synchronize the movement of Force Pro with the gimbal, helping capture cinematic scenes with ease. Force Pro breaks down the barriers that come with understanding the operation of more complex gimbal control systems.

Master Wheels is available at authorized pro dealers or through DJI flagship stores. The complete three-Axis Model will retail for $8,000, two-Axis Model for $6,000 and Single Wheel Control Module for $2,500. Master Wheels will begin shipping in June, 2018.
