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.

Description

The DJI TB47 is the same 4500-mAh battery that shipped with your Inspire 1 and provides up to 18 minutes of flight time. When in flight, your remaining battery power is shown live, letting you know how long you can continue to fly. Advanced algorithms calculate the distance of your aircraft and estimated time to return home, letting you know when it's time to fly back. The battery reports the voltage of each cell, the total lifetime charges and discharges, and the overall health and battery status. All this helps you keep your Inspire 1 in the air and flying for years to come. Note: Battery doe not come fully charged. It will take around 80 mins to charge the TB47 from empty to full by using the default 100W charger. By using the 180W Rapid Charger, it will take around 58 mins to full charged. Max flight time will be around 18 minutes. No any initial amount of charging needed.

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.
