The latest quadcopter from DJI is the DJI Inspire 1 and it’s already receiving rave reviews. The DJI Inspire 1 comes with an integrated gimbal and 4k/12 megapixel camera, so out of the box it’s ready to capture great photos and video. The camera is removeable too. The lens has 9 unique elements, including an aspherical element, for extreme clarity. Images are stored in the Adobe DNG RAW format. Retractable carbon fiber arms provide the camera with a full, unrestricted 360⁰ view of the world below. The carbon-fiber and other tricks help keep the DJI Inspire 1 lightweight, coming under 7lbs.
Flying the DJI Inspire 1 can be done using an app that runs on your phone or tablet. Its a very comprehensive app; you can control the camera manually, control flight telemetry, initiate auto take off and auto landing. The DJI Inspire 1 also supports remote controls. A single person can fly the DJI Inspire 1 using a single controller, but things get interesting when you add another remote control and operator. In this configuration, one person is flying while the other controls the camera.
The retractable carbon-fiber arms might have been your first clue that the DJI Inspire 1 is more than just a fun quadcopter to fly. It’s already in use professionally, site surveying, capturing photos for real estate marketing and filming music videos are just a few of the ways it’s already being commercially used. Recently, the Plymouth Fire Department used a DJI Inspire 1 to survey storm damage.
