Advanced, Ready-to-Fly Design
Imagine holding the future in your hands. Designed to be powerful while lightweight, flexible while providing the stability you need, the Inspire 1 is DJI’s most advanced complete package. All of the latest aerial technology is packed into one simple, ready-to-fly system, putting you in the sky within minutes.
Powerful Propulsion System
The Inspire 1’s propulsion system is unique among all flight platforms. We re-engineered and re-built the system to handle the demands of advanced flight, while increasing efficiency and reliability.
Aerodynamic Transforming Design
Carbon fibre arms give you the strength to manoeuvre in the air and they transform, moving out of the camera’s way at the flick of a switch. With a full 360° unobstructed view, you now have the freedom to capture shots independent of the direction you are flying. Every part, every component of the Inspire 1 was engineered to be durable and lightweight. The body’s aerodynamic design cuts through the sky and further enhances your control over the aircraft. This ensures long flight times and a long operational life.
Modular, upgradeable system
Inspire 1’s gimbal and camera system can be removed from the aircraft for safe transport and future upgrades.
X5 Camera and Gimbal System
Get crystal clear images with DJI’s most advanced camera to date. The gimbal holding your camera is the result of DJI’s years of expertise in camera stabilisation, giving you smooth, stable footage in any flight conditions.
Live HD View
A beautiful, 720p HD view shows you exactly what your camera sees at all times. Frame your shots and fly as though you're in the sky yourself. This is made possible by an all new and improved version of DJI's Lightbridge technology which can transmit video from up to 2km away.
For an even greater level of precision, use a second remote controller and fly with a friend. With two operators controlling the same Inspire 1, one person pilots the flight path while the other aims the gimbal and camera. Each user can have their own screen to see exactly what is being shot in real-time. By working in tandem, you’re capturing shots that are more complex and artistic than ever before.
Fly Indoors and Without GPS using Vision Positioning System
Indoor flight has always been a true test of skill for all levels of pilots. DJI’s new Vision Positioning technology uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to bring simplicity to flying indoors. This technology allows the Inspire to hold its position, stop when the controls are released, and respond to your commands even when GPS is unavailable.
Intelligent Power Management System
A fully integrated intelligent battery powers your Inspire 1 and virtually manages itself. 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.
Take absolute control of your Inspire 1 with DJI’s most sophisticated remote controller to date. Featuring dedicated buttons for photo and video capture, a gimbal control dial, an integrated rechargeable battery and more, it’s easy and intuitive to fly. The controller has an mini-HDMI and USB port allowing you to connect mobile devices or compatible screens.
Easy, safe flight
Even if you’ve never flown before, taking off and landing your Inspire 1 is easy and safe. It takes just one tap to make your Inspire 1 take-off and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to have it transform into landing mode and land.
When GPS is available, the Home Point (the location you are standing) automatically refreshes, so your Inspire 1 always knows where you are even if you move around. When you tell it to come back, or in case of an emergency, it knows exactly where to go and land safely.
A complete ready-to-fly system
Everything you need is included and ready to go, offering you a complete aerial filmmaking tool in one box. Just add your mobile device or other screen to use the live HD view.
Install the mobile app onto your phone or tablet and you’ll see what your Inspire 1 sees while taking control of its camera and flight settings.
Change all of your camera settings, including ISO, White Balance, Exposure, and more on the fly ensuring every shot looks exactly the way you want.
Live Map and Radar
See precisely where your Inspire 1 is at all times on the live map. The map can be enlarged when needed and shows your most recent flight path.
Dynamic Home Point
When GPS signal is available on the remote, the Home Point automatically refreshes. This becomes useful while traveling in a car or on a boat allowing the return-to-home point to move where the operator goes. Multiple configurations are available via the Dynamic Home Point function.
Auto-Take-off and Landing
Take-off and landing is easier than ever before, with both functions just a tap away. Tap once to take-off and your Inspire 1 will hover and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to make it transform into landing mode and auto land.
All of the information you need to fly safely is just a glance away. Altitude, flight speed, distance, and more are right at your fingertips.
Remote Control Customisation
Put yourself in charge by tailoring the Inspire 1’s controls to your personal needs. This way, your Inspire 1 moves and responds in ways you’re most comfortable with.
