Since the reporting of a small number of M200 series incidents, DJI has treated these issues with absolute priority and has thoroughly investigated all cases. After a physical component analysis of the devices we are unable to identify a common cause however suspect that these isolated cases may have resulted from water infiltration.
DJI’s M200 Series has been independently tested to an IP43 rating which certifies that:-
a) Protection is provided against access to hazardous parts (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects down to 1mm in diameter.
b) Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect. The M200 Series is not suitable to be operated in conditions or precipitation greater than those stated above.All users of M210 series drones should refer to our current maintenance guidelines and safety information (M200 series here and M200 V2 series here) to help manage their aircraft and maximise flight safety.
DJI is working to update these maintenance guidelines with more specific details, including the life expectancy of aircraft and parts, as well as recommended replacement schedules. DJI is also preparing a catalogue of DJI reliability and safety standards to help customers manage their maintenance requirements.
