Here’s the new release from DJI which will make your heart pound from excitement – DJI Inspire 1. This drone promises to be easy-to-use, and includes an all-in-one flying platform, so you not only have fun, but you can record it for posterity too.
The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter is built with a white plastic body, and four black legs, with one propeller positioned atop each column. The camera fits underneath the white body. When the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter rises into the air, the four legs rise up above the body. This gives the camera a chance to film in a unhindered 360 degree angle.
The body of the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter is built for durability. If you’re just learning, it can take the knocks and bumps that might result from the clumsy flight practices of a beginner. But no worries, the casing is flexible, and will bend and bounce back when you put it through its paces.
If you’re intrigued by aerial filmmaking, you’ll be fascinated by the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter, with its elegant, and easy-to-fly flight system. Even if you don’t have a lot of quadcopter practice, you’ll be pleased at what the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter has to offer.
Quick look at the DJI Inspire 1
The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter is ready to fly, right out of the box. It’s lightweight, and easy to get in the air. It’s flexible, yet stable.
The DJI Inspire 1 is made with strong carbon fiber arms. These move out of sight, so you can shoot unobstructed video and photos. Your camera will film 360 degree shots of the scenery surrounding you. All it takes is a flick of a switch, and your video camera can film perfect 360 degree video, without being marred by the casing or body of your quad.
Another neat feature of filming video, and taking shots, is that camera isn’t just forward facing. You can film, no matter which direction the quad is going.
The quadcopter has 4K video at 30 FPS. Images and video captured will be crisp and bright. The camera will capture 12 megapixel photos. The lens is built with nine separate elements, including an aspherical element, to reduce the look of a curved landscape. You’ll get increased clarity, and Adobe DNG RAW support. Every shot you take will be a masterpiece. You’ll get beautiful photos during every minute your DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter is in the air.
A fully featured app will give you complete control of your drone. It will work on most popular brands of smart phone, device, and computer. It gives you a full color view of your quad while it flies through the air. The app allows you to both control the camera on your quad, and the flight system of the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter. You can currently control your camera manually, tweak your flight telemetry, and adjust your auto takeoff and landings. The best part of an app is that DJI is constantly adding more functions and updates every month.
Unique dual-operator flight controls
You probably haven’t seen this feature before. The dual-operator flight control allows two people on the ground to control the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter. One person can concentrate on flying the drone, while the second person handles the camera and video controls. Together, you can achieve some fantastic footage together.
You can either use the app, or get a second flight controller for dual operator flying.
Camera and gimbal system made only for Inspire 1
You can be rest assured that you’re using the latest technology, with the unique camera and gimbal system built for your DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter. You’ll be able to achieve crystal clear images with DJI’s most advanced camera to date, even if you never went to professional photography school.
The gimbal of the camera will enable you to take smooth video, free of shakes, and vibrations. The video is 4K at 24-30 FPS, or 1080 p at 24-60 FPS. You get 12 megapixel photos. Lens has 9 elements in a aspherical element, 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor, 94 degree wide-angle FOV, and 3-axis, 360 degree rotating gimbal.
The Lightbridge technology enables you to watch live-streaming video as it happens, with a pop-up video screen attached to the controller. Your controller will remain in contact with your drone up to two kilometers away, and transmit video back to it.
Vision positioning system for easier flying
Some quads are built to be flown indoors, while some are better out. The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter is perfect for flying inside. The vision positioning system will enable you to have accurate position holding, even when GPS is turned off. Special built-in sensors detect location and altitude. The retractable legs will automatically lower when your drone is ready to land back down on the floor.
The most unique propulsion system
The Inspire 1 has a uniquely built propulsion system, that promises to be different than other manufacturers’ drones. DJI started from the inside out, and built a new system that would handle an advanced flight system, yet still remain efficient and reliable.
Long flight times, long battery life
The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter will fly for a longer flight time, on one battery charge. You can also charge up extra batteries, and switch them out, when on the field. This gives you more fun, while outside.
Completely upgradeable system
There’s that old saying that once it’s out of the box, it’s obsolete. Not so with your DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter. Not only will you get new flight app upgrades when they’re available, but you can remove the Inspire 1’s gimbal and camera system when you want. You can add a new camera when it’s available. This is also handy, if you wish to safely transport your drone in a backpack or trunk.
The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter may be a pricy purchase, but it’s the perfect choice for the beginner, and also for someone who wants to get into videography.
