DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter with 4K Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal
Key Features
  • Capture 4K Video and 12MP Stills
  • 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizes Camera
  • Up to 1.2 Mile Radio Range
  • GPS-Based Flight Control System
Capture 4K video and take 12-megapixel still photos from the air with the DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter with Integrated Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal. Forgoing the fixed landing gear design found on many earlier quadcopters, the Inspire 1 features a retractable arm system whereby the underside of each prop motor has a foot to act as a landing pod when the arms are lowered. In-flight, the arms lift up to provide the camera an unobstructed 360-degree view. A 3-axis gimbal keeps shots steady and the camera pointed the same direction as the quadcopter banks and turns. The camera records internally to microSDHC/SDXC memory cards (16GB included) and can also beam a live 720p feed to a mobile device running the DJI Lightbridge app or a monitor or FPV glasses with an HDMI input. One transmitter (radio controller) is included and a second can be added so that one operator can pilot and another can pan and tilt the camera.

Capture 4K video and take 12-megapixel still photos from the air with the DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter with Integrated Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal. Forgoing the fixed landing gear design found on many earlier quadcopters, the Inspire 1 features a retractable arm system whereby the underside of each prop motor has a foot to act as a landing pod when the arms are lowered. In-flight, the arms lift up to provide the camera an unobstructed 360-degree view. A 3-axis gimbal keeps shots steady and the camera pointed the same direction as the quadcopter banks and turns. The camera records internally to microSDHC/SDXC memory cards (16GB included) and can also beam a live 720p feed to a mobile device running the DJI Lightbridge app or a monitor or FPV glasses with an HDMI input. One transmitter (radio controller) is included and a second can be added so that one operator can pilot and another can pan and tilt the camera.

As with many other multi-rotor systems, the Inspire 1 relies on a GPS-based stabilization system that – thanks to spatial awareness – is able to hold a position even when experiencing wind interference, can compensate for overzealous pilot inputs to help avoid stalling, automatically brings the aircraft home in the event of signal loss or at the press of a button, and makes possible a number of semi-automated flight modes that can be enabled through the app. There is also an "indoor" mode which relies on Vision Positioning technology – essentially a special camera – provide stability indoors or in other contexts where GPS is unavailable (Note: certain features will be unavailable in indoor mode).

This bundle includes the Inspire 1 along with gimbal and camera, a transmitter, a flight battery, a battery charger, and a tablet holder that mounts on the transmitter. To store and transport the aircraft, a case with fitted cut-outs is included. It holds the Inspire with rotors detached, one or two transmitters, props, spare flight batteries, and more.

What Ready-to-Fly Means

This Inspire 1 bundle comes ready-to-fly (RTF). This means a pre-bound transmitter (radio controller) is included and that no major assembly is required – in particular, no assembly that requires soldering. It is important – as with any multi-rotor – to follow the user guide to ensure proper calibration before embarking on your first flight

Integrated 4K Camera

4K and HD Video Capture

The Inspire 1 Camera shoots 4K video at 24p and 30p, and it can shoot HD video frame rates from 24p to 60p. It features a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with a 94-degree field of view (FOV) lens. This field of view works out to about 20mm in 35mm equivalent, which gives you a wide but not extremely wide or fisheye framing – while not as immersive as a fisheye, this FOV features less distortion and gives the subject more emphasis

3-Axis Gimbal

The camera is mounted via an integrated 3-axis gimbal which uses brushless servo motors to keep the shot stable and the horizon level. The camera pans a full 360-degrees so that no matter which way the quadcopter turns, the camera can remain locked on the subject. Manual panning and tilting can be affected using controls on the transmitter

Live HD View

A real-time feed from the Inspire 1 Camera can be displayed in 720p HD on a mobile device or HDMI monitor, making this it a great choice for FPV (first-person view) flying as well as enabling videographers and photographers to monitor framing from the ground. This is made possible by the inclusion of the DJI Lightbridge system within the flight electronics, which features a range of up to 1.2 miles

For connecting an FPV monitor or glasses there is an HDMI port on the transmitter. Plus there is a USB port to keep you mobile device's battery topped up. And included mount allows you to attach a smartphone or tablet directly to the transmitter

Modular Gimbal and Camera

Inspire 1's gimbal and camera can be removed from the aircraft for safe transport and future upgrades

Airframe Design

Retractable Carbon Fiber Arms

The prop arms rest in a lowered position when the Inspire is on the ground, acting as landing gear. Once in the air, they can be retracted to give the camera unobstructed views across 360-degrees. Carbon fiber is used in the construction because of its high strength to weight ratio

Aerodynamic Design

Not only does it give the Inspire 1 a sleek look, the aerodynamic airframe helps reduce resistance for better performance and increased battery life

Flight Control System

Fly Indoors and Without GPS

DJI's Optical Flow technology uses a specially designed camera as well as sonic waves to provide the same stability function indoors as GPS does outdoors. This technology allows the Inspire to hold its location, stop when the controls are released, and quickly respond to pilot commands even when GPS is unavailable

App-Based Control Software

Everything from manual camera controls to flight telemetry – even auto takeoff and landing – can be accessed via the Inspire 1 Mobile app. It is also possible to create autopilot courses using waypoints, just as you would on the DJI iPad Ground Station System

Note: The tablet must be connected to the transmitter via USB, and to use the waypoint map an Internet connection is required

Manual Mode

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 transmitter (remote control), 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-Takeoff and Landing

Takeoff and landing are available with just a tap. Tap once to takeoff 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

Transmitter Customization

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

Transmitter (Radio Controller)

Take control of your Inspire 1 in the air with a dedicated transmitter (radio controller) designed specifically for it. Operating on 2.4 GHz, it features dedicated buttons for photo and video capture, a gimbal control dial, and more. It includes an integrated 6000mAh rechargeable battery

    Use Two Transmitters

    For an even greater level of precision, use a second transmitter and fly with a friend. With two people controlling the same quadcopter, 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

    Smart Battery System

    Smart Power Management

    The flight battery constantly supplies the flight computer with remaining voltage. Using special algorithms the computer supplies the pilot with estimates of remaining flying distance and time to return home

    Automated Charging

    The battery tracks the voltage of each cell, the total number of charges and discharges, and the overall health and battery status

    question

    I see mention of the feature that the camera gimbal, when combined with GPS data, is able to keep the camera aimed at an object. Does this mean that there is an ability to have the Inspire 1 in motion while shooting another object in motion? For example, could the Inspire 1 fly along a soccer field in one direction while shooting the action of the soccer ball as it is moved by the players (assuming that the controller is providing movement controls to aim at the soccer ball)?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    the camera angle up/down and panning 330 position is totally controllable by pilot or second controller linked to same Inspire which is then dedicated to a camera operator

    question

    Can anyone tell me if their Inspire has a tiny screw in the centre of the gimbal mounting bracket? I broke my bracket in half, ordered a new one but it didn't come with that little screw - only the 4 to hold the gimbal mount and they are a different size. So I'm not sure if I lost that screw or maybe it was never there.
    Asked by: Chris F.
    Chris, I have on the main arm from the mount, there is a dimple that looks like it could be a screw, but it is black, and hard to tell, maybe a torque screw. On the other part, the shaft is what I see there. Email directly and I will sent you the photos. my gmail account is uav.pilot4fun
