ENGINEERED FOR PROFESSIONALS
Cinematic film making demands rapid setup and a host of camera configurations. The Ronin-MX has been designed to carry many of the cameras used every day on sets worldwide, and SmoothTrack™ algorithms ensure movements are smooth in every configuration. A repositioned battery improves balance while stability is enhanced by a camera cage that locks mounted cameras in place at the top and at the bottom. Silent motors prevent on set mics picking up motor noise. Compatible with: RED DRAGON, ARRI ALEXA MINI, BMCC, CANON 5D, Hasselblad H6D-100C and more…
POWERFUL AND ACCURATE
Designed to resist high G-forces using powerful motors and IMUs, the Ronin-MX is engineered to maintain stability and hold horizon whenmounted to an aircraft or a vehicle. When mounted to the M600 aerial system, it communicates directly with DJI’s flight controlle, allowing it to stabilize actively for a smoother shot.
FREEDOM TO MOVE
A slip ring allows the Ronin-MX to rotate 360° continuously when mounted to aircraft or vehicles, opening up more creative options. This is further enhanced by an increase in tilt axis range from 90° straight down and beyond to 135°. Popular features of the Ronin series such as the three modes of operation and SmoothTrack™ are also present, giving film makers a range of creative angles and movements.
WIRELESS CONTROL AND TRANSMISSION
The Ronin-MX is compatible with Lightbridge 2, providing long-range HD video transmission from the air to the ground from up to 3.1miles (5km) away. If combined with the optional DJI Focus and Focus Expansion Module, focus or aperture can also be pulled remotely with a twist of the wrist. An optional Remote Start/Stop add-on provides the ability to control shooting on a range of airborne cameras.
COMPREHENSIVE APP CONTROL
Using DJI Assistant and the dedicated Assistant app for iOS and Android allows complete customization of the Ronin-MX and its behavior. If connected to Lightbridge 2, the DJI GO app can be used to control how the M600 flies including Intelligent Flight Modes, remote control modes, move the gimbal and see an HD live feed from the camera.

The Ronin-MX is compatible with all cameras that are compatible with Ronin-M. It has also been tested with a range of cameras from large ones like the ARRI ALEXA Mini, RED Dragon, Red Raven, Canon 5D, down to smaller cameras such as the Panasonic GH4.
What’s the difference between the Ronin, Ronin-M and Ronin-MX?
The Ronin-MX has been designed for use both in the sky and on the ground and communicates directly with the DJI A3 flight controller. The Ronin-MX can be mounted on the Matrice 600 in just minutes, so that you can easily go from shooting handheld to capturing footage from above. The Ronin and Ronin-M are designed specifically for use on the ground and we do not recommend using them in the air. The Ronin-MX includes all the functionality of the Ronin and Ronin-M, i.e. Three Operation Modes, built-in receiver and remote control, and is also compatible with DJI Assistant 2 and DJI GO, for controlling gimbal settings.
What is the M600? Can I fly the Ronin-MX on other platforms?
The Matrice 600 (M600) is an integrated aerial system built with the A3 Flight Controller and Lightbridge 2. It is designed to fly the Ronin-MX gimbal and it is also compatible with all of DJI’s Zenmuse gimbals and cameras. DJI do not recommend mounting the Ronin-MX to other platforms as the Ronin-MX is not able to communicate with flight controllers other than the A3, meaning that maximum stabilisation performance is achieved with the M600.
What is the difference between the Ronin-MX cage design and the design of the Ronin-M? Is the non-cage design is not as stable?
No, the non-cage design of the Ronin and the Ronin-M works perfectly when used on the ground. When the gimbal is mounted to a flying platform, its movements are more complex and require more advanced balancing capability. The cage designed for the Ronin-MX locks the camera at the top and at the bottom, improving its stabilisation performance for aerial use.
