4K Inspire 2
Control, Reliability in Flight
The Inspire 2’s gaudy performance — it can descend at 29 ft/sec and climb at 19.7 ft/sec — is harnessed by its flight control systems. The FlightAutonomy program is more highly developed, with two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. The Inspire 2 is capable of indoor hovering and positioning, sensing overhead obstacles at 16.4 feet. During normal flight, it detects obstacles up to 98 feet away at 34 mph.
Range is 4.3 miles, and Lightbridge signal transmission frequency can switch between 2.4 and 5.8 GHz to avoid interference. A second remote controller can be added for photographer use. The Inspire 2 has TapFly and Safe Return Home, and routes can be predetermined with waypoints.
High-performance Cameras, Video Recording
The DJI Zenmuse X4S and X5S cameras can be added to the Inspire 2. Both are mounted on quiet 3-axis gimbals and are removable for ground shooting. The X4S uses a leaf shutter that eliminates rolling shutter distortion. The X5S is a micro four-thirds camera with a sensor eight times bigger than that of the X3 camera on the Inspire 1. It accepts a lens from Olympus, DJI or Panasonic — your choice.
The video recording system of the Inspire 2 can record in CinemaDNG Raw, Apple ProRes 5.2K video support, H.264, H.265 and other formats that lend themselves to professional-level post-production. Your Inspire 2 will store video simultaneously on the DJI CINESSD and a Micro-SD card. ActiveTrack locks on moving subjects, regardless of drone movement, and additional tracking by Spotlight Pro facilitates complicated shots by one operator.
