DJI Inspire 2 – the impressive professional drone – review

The initial Inspire 1 was an outstanding piece of package, but the Inspire 2 drone beats it in nearly every honor. The style has been much better, with low cost looking plastic material being changed by metal composite bodywork, while the significantly superior object avoidance technology indicates you can breathe a little easier as your costly investment takes to the skies.

A twin-battery option in Inspire 2 drone gives more than 25 minutes of flight time, while the capability to swap camera lenses to match your shooting targets will make this very interesting to really serious photographers and video creators – it also makes sure the drone is future-proofed to a degree. Add in a excellent and fully-featured smartphone application and dedicated remote control and you’ve got a really impressive piece of kit – but the price tag for the finest package will put it out of the price range for casual drone customers. But if you’re searching for battery time that totally blows averages out of the water, take a look at the Autel EVO Drone.Inspire 2 drone

The Inspire 1 was constructed similar to a tank, but the Inspire 2 is even more robust many thanks to its modified aluminum shell. The carbon fiber arms mean bumps and bashes won’t harm the unit, with the just weak spots being the plastic-type, quick-release propellers – which are quickly replaceable should they get damaged – and the camera itself, which is also replaceable, even though at a much greater cost.
The build level of quality is almost unimportant, however, simply because of the sheer number of counter measures DJI has integrated in the Inspire 2. The mentioned FPV camera and obstacle-avoidance technique track for incoming physical objects 30 meters ahead, while the upward-facing infrared sensors scan for objects 5 meters above the drone, which is useful when you’re flying in enclosed areas. Terrain recognition sensors installed to the bottom of the Inspire 2 round off the package.

If you’re not very concerned with the increased object avoidance tech and 5.2K video recording, it might be better to think about the aging (but still very good) Inspire 1 or the DJI Phantom 4, both of which can be bought for a fraction of the cost without compromising too much important performance.
Battery life is constantly a worry with drones, and when you consider all of the extra tech that has been placed into the Inspire 2, you’d be forgiven for fretting about the influence on stamina. Nevertheless, DJI has thought of this, and has provided a dual-battery setup which increases your flying time to around 25 minutes.Inspire 2 droneThe Inspire 2 drone looks basically the same as the first generation version, but this time it’s made from magnesium-aluminum combination, which DJI says increases rigidity to help flying while decreasing weight. The bodyweight reduction is generally just to improve battery life — while it’s easy enough to pick up, it’s definitely made to be transported in a flight case, quite possibly in the back of a car.  Inspire 2 from USD $3,299.Inspire 2 drone

One of the crucial advantages of the Inspire is the functionality to have both a pilot and a camera operator work at the same time with separate master and slave controllers. On the Inspire 1, this needs the pilot to navigate using the live video from the camera, which might not constantly be pointed forward. The Inspire 2 adds a second first-person-view camera that provides the pilot the greatest view for flying, while allowing the camera operator to set the perfect shot.
If cash is not an problem, DJI Inspire 2 is certainly the best drone to invest in. It has top rated general performance, outstanding build quality, and delivers 5.2k top quality of raw video capture.
Visually, it could look just like a small change than its DJI predecessors but in terms of battery, recharge time, and general effectiveness, we highly recommend this model. It captures photos and video clips in CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes. What more could you request for if pro filmmaking is something you love doing?

DJI GO 4 is a powerful app that offers full control and customization of the Inspire 2. It can be used to check the flight status of the aircraft in real time, trigger automatic take off or Return to Home, control camera settings, enable Intelligent Flight Modes and much more, all with just a few taps of the screen.
