Multi-Rotor Stabilization Controller
DJI Wookong Multi-Rotor stabilization controller is a complete flight system for all multi-rotor platforms for commercial and industrial AP applications. Unlike others, WooKong allows the use of regular ESC commonly used in RC helicopters without any wiring modification; Heli mode setup provides a seamless transition for current Ace One AP professionals. WK-M utilizes high quality components precisely calibrated with temperature compensation in all gyros and sensors, industry renowned flight algorithm in autopilot and UAV field.
9 Types Of Multi-Rotors And A Customized Motor Mixer
Support 9 traditional motor mixer:
Quad I, Quad X
Hexa I,Hexa V, Hexa Y, Hexa IY
Octo X, Octo I,Octo V
It’s a UAS that targeted at commercial and industrial multirotor platforms with simple configuration, easy installation and stable performance.
Built-In Gimbal Stabilization Function
The gimbal stabilization module is compatible with most 2-axis gimbal systems. The system will adjust the camera according to the attitude of the aircraft after setting the parameters the first time. The scope of the gimbal servo output frequency is 400hz, 200hz, 100h and 50hz, the higher frequency output makes the adjustment more efficient. At the same time, the limit of the gimbal servo rolling and pitching is extended to 90°.
Support IPad Ground Control Station (GCS)
WooKong-M GCS now supports iPad (currently iPad 3, iPad4, iPad mini), the only thing you need to do is to plug in a Bluetooth datalink and the BTU module. Gone are the days of the heavy laptop, now you don’t need to install maps and drivers, forget about the Windows OS version compatibility problems, and don’t worry about Google Earth. Without long cables, it is as easy for you to control the aircraft with your ground station as play a game on your iPad. More-over the trend of using the iPad Waypoint will be another highlight.

New Assistant Software For Smartphone
The WooKong-M now provides assistant software for iPhone4s, iPhone5, iPad3, iPad4, iPadmini, iPod5. You can do parameter adjustments at any time on your mobile devices, using only an LED indicator with a built-in Bluetooth module which makes it easier and convenient. It uses low power Bluetooth to minimize the power consumption of your mobile devices. It is easy to use and will automatically save your last connection records. The password mechanism ensures your safety link. Parameters can be automatically synchronized to the Cloud Server and can be restored immediately when you changed your mobile devices.
Supporting Futaba S-Bus Receiver
Compatible with almost all radios-PCM or 2.4Ghz
Power Monitoring Unit
Specially designed for WKM to solve the high power consumption problem of the power support system. It contains two power outputs for the entire WKM system and receiver separately, a battery voltage monitor, and two CAN-Bus interfaces.
Small footprint and weight offer ease of installation in tight spaces, for various aircraft sizes.
Precise Position And Altitude Hold
With WKM, the multirotors will have position and altitude lock in windy conditions. Precise hovering in less than 2m horizontal and 0.5m vertical.
High Accuracy And Driving Handfeel
With the WKM, flying a multi-rotor will be as easy as driving a car. The pilot is released from the stress of controlling the multi-rotor and able to pay more attention to other tasks such as camera angle, instead of focus on flying.
Motor Arm/Disarm Mode
Start Motor: When using WKM, pushing throttle stick before takeoff will not start motors. You have to execute any one of following four Combination Stick Commands (CSC) to start motors.
Stop Motor: We provide two options to stop motors: Immediate and Intelligent. Immediately Mode: By using this mode, in any control mode, once motors start and throttle stick is over 10%, motors will stop immediately when throttle stick is back under 10% again. In this case, if you push the throttle stick over 10% in 5 seconds after motors stop, motors will re-start, CSC is no needed. If you don’t push throttle stick after motors start in three seconds, motors will stop automatically. Intelligent Mode: By using this mode, different control modes have different way of stopping motors. In Manual Mode, only executing CSC can stop motors. In Atti. or GPS Atti. Mode, any one of following four cases will stop motor
Point Of Interest (POI)
WooKong-M has a new function: Point of Interest. When the GPS signal is good, users can record the present position of the aircraft as a point of interest by the preset switch on the remote controller. The aircraft could achieve a circle flight around the point of interest with the nose in the point in an area of 5 meters to 500 meters radius, when the rolling command is given. This function is easy to set up and convenient to operate, it is suitable for all-round shooting of a fixed scenic spot.
RTH Switch From Transmitter
In addition to the function of failsafe RTH, WooKong-M now has a new function of RTH switch from transmitter. It is unnecessary to turn into failsafe mode.
Support IOSD MARK II
The WooKong-M now support iOSD MARK II. This will undoubtedly give you a fantastic flight performance. Depending upon DJI’s accumulation of historic and reliable information integration technology, the iOSD MARK II can grab the most accurate first-hand flight data information in the shortest possible time.
Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC), wherever the nose points, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction:
In course lock flying, the forward direction is the same as a recorded nose direction. See the following figures (Mode 2)： In home lock flying, the forward direction is the same as the direction from home point to multi-rotor.See the following figures (Mode 2)：
Enhanced Fail-Safe And Auto Go Home/Landing
Enhanced fail-safe is the feature to ensure that the multi-rotor will hover automatically if it loses RC signal. After losing the signal in a certain time period, WKM will calculate the safest way to return the helicopter to the home position. The helicopter will hover over your GPS start point and land automatically. This feature will guarantee the safety of your expensive payloads and equipments on the platform.
Multi-Rotor One-Power Output Fail Protection
In most conditions, the whole multi-rotor will retain good attitude and rotate around the frame arm with no power output, due to imbalanced mechanical structure and external environment. Rotating is mainly caused by payload and external environment. When payload is heavier, rotating speed is faster. On rotating, the hexa-rotor physical structure can cause rudder to become out of control. The humanistic protection function from WooKong-M, in Attitude or GPS Mode, keeps attitude under control even with any one power output failed and highly reduces crash risk.
Two Levels Low Voltage Protections And Auto Go Home
In order to prevent your multi-rotor from a crash or other harmful consequence caused by low battery voltage, we have designed two levels of low voltage protection. You can choose to not to use them, but all two level protections have LED warning as default. First level will blink yellow light continuously; second level will blink red light continuously. Compare the Go Home and Landing of low voltage protection and the Go Home and Landing in Enhanced Failed-safe, the generations of Home Location are the same; the Go Home routes are the same; the difference is that there is no hovering before landing in low voltage protection.
Upgrade To Ground Station Control System
WooKong-M can be upgraded to ground station which is a more powerful unmanned platform to satisfy the high requirement of customers.
Now you just need to buy a DJI professional datalink and upgrade to the latest WooKong-M 5.26 firmware, then free Ground Station function is available without S/N and free 50 waypoints supported. Besides the 3D map, it also contains such ground control functions as joystick/keyboard control, one key takeoff and click & go.
