DJI supports Skyport sensors on the Matrice 210 V1 and V2. Please ensure that the following DJI software and firmware is up to date. Older versions may not support the Skyport fully.

Matrice 210 Firmware
To upgrade the Matrice 210 firmware, log into DJI Assistant 2 for Matrice and go to the Firmware tab. There you can download and install the current version.
Matrice 210 Skyport Firmware
To upgrade the Matrice 210 Skyport firmware, log into DJI Assistant 2 for Matrice and go to the Skyport tab. Connect your Skyport sensor (RedEdge-MX or Altum) to the Matrice 210 and look under the "Common Operations" section. If there is an upgrade available, it will appear there. Otherwise it will read "No need to upgrade".
If your software and firmware is up to date, the sensor is fully powered on, and you still cannot connect to the Matrice 210, please contact support.
The following drones are fully supported:
- Matrice 200 (v1 and v2)
- Matrice 210 (v1 and v2)
The following drones are partially supported.
- Matrice 210 RTK: Can power the camera, and trigger captures via Skyport. However, DJI's RTK protocol is not supported yet. More info on this below.
- Matrice 300 RTK. Can power the camera, and trigger captures via Skyport. However, DJI's RTK protocol is not supported yet. More info on this below.
Matrice Dual Gimbal (found on M210 and M300 RTK)
Starting with the Matrice 210, DJI offers a dual gimbal configuration. Unfortunately, both connections are not created equal. If you have a Skyport camera, you must use Gimbal 1 instead of Gimbal 2. This is a DJI recommendation. If you cannot mount it on Gimbal 1, you may experience issues with the drone having a direct line of communication to the camera (e.g. camera not being triggered during flight).
DJI RTK Protocol for Matrice 210 RTK and 300 RTK
DJI’s RTK protocol is not supported at this time. However you will still be able to use the camera normally using the camera's automatic triggering modes.
If and when we do validate and support DJI’s RTK protocol, we will update this guide.
If using your camera with any other models (such as the Inspire 2, or Matrice 600), you will need to change your auto-capture mode from “disabled” to either Overlap or Timer mode, so that the camera can trigger itself instead of relying on the drone.
In DJI Assistant 2 V 2.0.7, the status on connector II will display as disconnected. This is a known issue with this version of DJI Assistant. The main test of connectivity would be to connect to the drone via Atlas Flight and see if it can detect the payload name and number of captures remaining.
Please ensure that your flight planner supports Skyport operations.
Supported Flight Planners
Several flight planners seamlessly support Skyport operations such as triggering and communication of remaining storage. Atlas Flight for iOS fully supports Skyport triggering and displays the number of captures remaining on the storage device. However, it will not be compatible with all DJI messages such as DJI AirSense (ADS-B), or other aircraft-specific messages.
