DJI Inspire 1

 

DJI has quite a few drones currently on the market –it seems as if they really do know how to design them. Today, we are going to take a close look at the DJI Inspire 1, which is something that really caught our eyes for a variety of reasons. Let’s move forward and see if it is something that will live up to your expectations.

 

Looking at the design of the DJI Inspire 1, it’s very intimidating. It’s only 1.5 feet wide and weighs 6.5 pounds. This is a fairly large piece of professional equipment and should not be considered a toy to hand your kids.

 

This drone is capable of capturing amazing 4K video and high-definition imagery, which is a major benefit.

 

Looking at the specs of the Inspire 1, if you are familiar with drones, you’d probably realize that this one right here is a step up.

 

4K Video

 

As stated above, this drone is capable of recording crystal clear 4k video clips at 24-30 fps, which is astonishing. Most quads are only able to record the typical 720p and 1080p videos.

Detachable

 

The camera is also detachable, which is an added benefit. This way, if you would like to upgrade it in the future, all you have to do is unscrew the current camera and replace it with a new one – it really is that easy.

 

The Gimbal

 

The gimbal is something else that we feel the need to mention. DJI is famous for the 3-axis gimbal technology and they did not skip out on it here. What’s even better, though, would be the fact that the gimbal is capable of rotating 360 degrees and tilting 125 degrees. If you do some research and look at the other drones that are currently on the market, you’ll find that no other drone is able to do this at the moment.

Navigation

When it comes to navigation, there’s nothing to worry about – it really is as easy as everyone says it is, thanks to the nice controller and app interface. Even when the winds are strong outside, the drone is capable of maintaining its stability.

 

For this ready-to-fly quad, durability isn’t going to be an issue. In the landing gear, it has carbon fiber parts. Since they are made of carbon fiber, they offer toughness, without weighing too much. The design has that sleek, futuristic look to it, which is a real eye-catcher.

Are there any cons?

When it comes to the DJI Inspire 1, at this time, we cannot find any real cons, but we do see some areas that may need to go through some improvements. The first one is the price. A full kit will cost you around $3000. If you want an extra battery or an extra controller, then you will need to add extra. However, the features do justify the price.  The battery life (18 minutes) is a little low, but to fix this, you can get an additional battery.

Other than those 2 factors, we really cannot find any other downfalls with the DJI Inspire 1.

 

Conclusion

Taking a step back and looking at the overall picture of the DJI Inspire 1, even with a big price tag and a low battery life, we still believe the drone is well worth every penny. If you’re looking for professional equipment, you’ll find it right here. If you can afford this price tag, you’re going to enjoy every minute of the drone – it really is well worth the money.

Radio Controlled Toys - Pastime Grade Gadgets For Serious Hobbyists Radio regulated (RC) toys can be toy grade or hobby grade.

RC Cars

A radio controlled device of one toy can not be utilized in another toy. They are not durable and are of "soft" material; these toys are primarily not able to take on the rugged terrain outdoors. The only thing that will be needed is to open the battery case and put in the batteries, and then the toy is all set for usage. On the other hand, pastime grade radio controlled toys are made from long lasting product, and are custom made. They are primarily easy in their style. The design is basic and can be re-used/ remodeled, and can be serviced. The radio controller and the parts can quickly be utilized in another pastime grade toy. They are durable and more robust. They are not constantly readily available in ready-to-use state, though there are many hobby-grade RC stores that will deliver the toy in put together state. Lots of hobbyists prefer to purchase the toy in parts, and choose to do the assembly themselves. The design, assembly, and driving of the radio managed toy remains in itself a pastime. The serious hobbyists likewise indulge in the RC sports that have their requirements and guidelines, not to mention the earnings which generally will be an improvement to their present RC toy or another RC toy. Every RC toy is available as a toy grade or a pastime grade toy nowadays. They can be planes, helicopters, boats, robots and cars and trucks. The models can be connected to a repaired pole via rope, or can be totally free flying designs. The most current radio controlled models can reach up to 250mph. RC airborne toys require a high level of knowledge and control, and will require guidance of adults. The RC automobile is the one most common toy among radio regulated model enthusiasts. RC automobiles are fairly safe compared to the air-borne toys, and can be managed even by a kid. The RC automobile races are typical for the radio controlled design enthusiasts. Helicopters: Another airborne radio controlled model. It is different from the aircraft in design and flight, and some state that it is a lot more intriguing to fly.

However, the exact same considerations that use to helicopters use here too. A radio managed boat was the first "toy" to be push-button control. Tesla showed the remote control boat design which he showed to the public as a gadget that "obeyed people's commands", where in truth it was him managing the boat inning accordance with individuals's commands. Robotics nevertheless, are in fact moving from radio regulated designs to the newest artificial intelligence models and voice regulated designs. Radio controlled models of robots are still very popular as toys, as hobbies as well as a safety tool for remote handling of toy bombs and such. A radio controlled gadget of one toy can not be utilized in another toy. On the other hand, pastime grade radio controlled toys are made of resilient product, and are customized made. The severe enthusiasts likewise indulge in the RC sports that have their requirements and rules, not to point out the winnings which normally will be an enhancement to their current RC toy or another RC toy. The RC cars and truck is the one most common toy among radio controlled design hobbyists. Radio controlled designs of robotics are still very popular as toys, as pastimes as well as a security tool for remote handling of bombs and such.

Watch the video and take action to save our hobby before it's too late.

Act now... don't delay. Flying RC planes, helicopters, gliders and multirotors is a hobby under dire threat of elimination from the "desk pilots" at EASA. Please be sure to make a submission to the EASA on this matter (send emails to: UASPrototypeRule@easa.europa.eu ) and watch these videos for more very important information.

Parrot Disco Drone

I really like this offering from Parrot, it is quite different from their usual quadcopters but has many benefits, the main ones are it can fly itself and the Parrot Disco can stay aloft for a full 45mins on one battery, that's amazing compared to the 5 or 6mis for a quadcopter.  And it goes without saying you can fly it FPV (First Person View) and take great video at the same time.

Quadcopter Hoverboard

Monday, May 25th, 2015
Close

Quadcopter hoverboard makes it into the Guiness Book of Records! Is this the "Back To The Future" future of quadcopters?

It's not really fair to say that hoverboards don't exist -- they do, in wildly varying forms. Unfortunately they also happen to be pretty... raw. Which means they are either unable to work for more than a few seconds or require a surface substrate rippling with an opposing magnetic field to get around.

Still, the hope remains that a functioning mass-market hoverboard will become a possibility one day -- perhaps even before everyone who saw Back To The Future in cinemas is too old to try it out.

Today we've come one step closer, thanks to Catalina Alexandru Duru who has just broken the official record for the longest flight ever on a hoverboard.

Using his own conception of a floating skateboard -- this time a horizontal board powered by two massive fans like a quadcopter, rather than a water jet or magnets -- Duru managed to fly 905 feet and 2 inches over the surface of Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada, under the watchful gaze of Guinness World Records.
