If the DJI Phantom 4 Pro was the Cessna of drones and the Matrice 600 Pro was the Boeing 777. Then the Inspire 1 would be a fancy Gulfstream personal jet. What it comes down to is that DJI is the industry leader in consumer, commercial and industrial multi-rotor UAV technology. Furthermore the Inspire 1 incorporates some highly advanced features that let you fly without worry. You can capture extraordinary video using any of the five available Zenmuse cameras.
The DJI Inspire 1 UAV has a central fuselage that supports four carbon fiber arms. These hold the motors, props and landing gear. Once the aircraft lifts off, the arms articulate upward and out of the way of the camera which is supported on a gimbal below the fuselage. With the props and landing gear out of the way, this give a 360 degree capability for rotating the camera without altering the orientation of the drone. When landing, the arms articulate downward to tuck the camera up underneath the landing gear. Hence protecting it from ground contact when landing.
The remote control permits live video feed viewing out to 3 miles. The remote control has buttons to fully control flight and the camera. The DJI Inspire 1 permits two remote controls to be used for more precision flight and camera operation. A pilot can control flight while a second operator controls all of the camera functions. This is very useful when flying close to objects to complete infrastructure inspections.
The DJI Inspire 1 drone can fly programmed routes and even automatically return to the takeoff point and land safely on its own. This is one of the most advanced unmanned aerial vehicles in production today and fits nicely in its market serving both the needs of professional drone users and advanced hobbyists.
The DJI Inspire 1 is reasonably priced and can be found online.
