DJI Inspire 2 Overview

  • 1Description

DJI's magnesium-aluminum-clad Inspire 2 Quadcopter is a powerful cinematic and photographic tool. Combining the Inspire 2 with the separately available X4S and X5S gimbal cameras yields cinema-grade images, which can be recorded in high bit rates using H.264 and H.265 formats, or, in the case of the X5R, various flavors of Apple ProRes and CinemaDNG raw using the required licenses available from DJI. All the recording functionality is processed by the Inspire 2's CineCore 2.0 image processing engine.

Not all the power to be found in the Inspire 2 is in the recording functionality. DJI beefed up the flight capabilities of the Inspire 2. Able to accelerate to 50 mph in 4 seconds and reach a top speed of 58 mph, the Inspire 2 can follow fast-moving subjects for dramatic sports and action footage. The flight prowess of the Inspire 2 doesn't come at the expense of battery life. With the two included LiPo batteries onboard, up to 27 minutes of flight time can be had on a full charge.

Advanced obstacle avoidance has also made its way to the Inspire 2. Built into DJI's FlightAutonomy system, objects in front of, below, and above the quadcopter can be detected and avoided automatically. The Inspire 2 can even remember flight paths in case of an emergency return-to-home without GPS enabled. What's more, using the onboard 2-axis stabilized FPV camera, the pilot can navigate the Inspire 2 without being limited to the gimbal camera's field-of-view.

Everything you need to set up your Inspire 2 is included. Two batteries with a charger, an all-new transmitter controller, extra propellers, a calibration plate, and a carrying case to store and transport everything.

Advanced Obstacle Sensing
Forward and downward vision systems enable the Inspire 2 to detect obstacles up to 30 meters ahead, allowing for protected flight at up to 34 mph at a controllable attitude angle of 25°. Upward-facing infrared sensors scan obstacles 16' above, adding protection when flying in enclosed spaces. Obstacle-sensing systems are active during normal flight, RTH, and all Intelligent Flight Modes.
Spotlight Pro
Spotlight Pro is a powerful tracking mode that allows even single pilots to capture complex, dramatic images. It uses advanced, visual-tracking algorithms to lock onto a subject during flight, regardless of the direction that the Inspire 2 flies, creating shots that would once have required a dedicated camera operator. If the gimbal comes close to reaching its rotation limits, the Inspire 2 itself will rotate in the same direction without affecting flight control or the shot being captured to free up gimbal movement.

Spotlight Pro has two shooting modes: Quick Mode and Composition Mode. In Quick Mode, select an object to begin tracking. In Composition Mode, select the subject and the tracking position. When the subject enters the preset tracking position, press the shortcut to begin tracking. The gimbal can be moved during shooting for composition adjustments. Spotlight Pro is available in all Intelligent Flight Modes including ActiveTrack, TapFly, Waypoint and Point of Interest.
The 2-axis onboard FPV camera separates the flight view from the main camera view, effectively giving the Inspire 2 a dedicated "tap-to-fly" camera. Tap a point onscreen in the FPV view to set a flight route and the Inspire 2 will automatically fly along that route, leaving the pilot to focus on gimbal movement.
The ActiveTrack Mode allows the Inspire 2 to recognize a range of objects, from people to bikes to cars to boats. Tracking profiles that can be adjusted based on the subject being tracked means greater tracking precision.
Smart Return Home
Forward and downward vision systems allow the Inspire 2 to create a real-time map of its flight route as it flies. If the video transmission system signal is lost and Smart Return Home is enabled, it is able to fly home along its original route and change to a straight line when it regains a signal. As it returns, it will use the primary camera to identify obstacles as far as 200m in front, allowing it to plan a safe route home. It is also able to reconnect more quickly after losing connection.
Video Transmission System
The Inspire 2 features DJI's Lightbridge technology. This iteration has an effective transmission distance of up to 4.3 miles (under ideal conditions) and is capable of delivering both 1080p/720p video as well as the FPV view to pilot and camera operator. Users can also switch between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz control frequencies to avoid interference for greater signal stability.

Master and Slave setups are also supported. The master controller can transmit an HD video signal to the slave controller up to 300' away without image quality loss.
Broadcast Mode
Broadcasters can broadcast direct from the Inspire 2 using its dedicated 1080i50 and 720p60 transmission signal. Aerial live-streaming direct to TV is as simple as connecting the Inspire 2 transmitter to the satellite truck.
Powerful Flight Performance
The propulsion system can thrust the Inspire 2 up to 58 mph and allows for descents at up to 29 feet-per-second and ascents at up to 19 feet-per-second. It can accelerate from 0 to 50 mph in just four seconds and flies at a max attitude angle of 40°. The two controller sticks on the transmitter are tuned for more sensitivity, making delicate maneuvers easier.
Dual Battery Design
Dual batteries mean that, if a problem occurs on one battery, the other is able to continue flight long enough for a safe landing. At the same time, the Inspire 2 propulsion system is driven a PWM signal with serial port signal redundancy so that if PWM signals are lost, transmission will continue through the serial port.

    DJI Inspire 2 Reviews

    Inspire 2 Quadcopter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Drone in category money can buy I use this drone for photos and video and upgraded from the Inspire 1 and I am very happy with the new features like dual battery, better sensor, ease of use. They took the best from an already great drone (Inspire 1) and improved everything. Really happy with the results so far. The only thing that keeps bothering me is the fact that DJI says battery life is always more than it actually is. I've gotten max 21 minutes on the Inspire with X5S but that always depends on conditions. So overall if you have the money this is the best drone to have at this price range

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great UAV, missing a few features that are on lesser models Recently received the Inspire 2 with x5s. First off, let me say that this thing really blew my mind. I'm coming from some older Turbo Ace technology and was really impressed by how far DJI has come. I had a Phantom 2+ years back and that thing was total junk. The build is very solid and flies extremely smooth. The footage coming out of the camera system is what has totally sold me on this system. It's flat out amazing and yields highly professional results. I haven't run through any low light tests yet, but I'm assuming keeping the ISO 800 or below with some post noise reduction will yield good results. Things I wish they would improve: Props. They are plastic, I would like to see carbon fiber. Side collision avoidance system. The app can be buggy on Android system. Slow response when trying to change camera settings while in the air (sometimes 5-10 seconds wait time from pressing the button on the tablet, to it responding) I've also had app crashes and image freezes. More intelligent flight modes. I've seen reviews on the phantoms that have a lot of flight modes, this only has a few. Not sure if they will be releasing new firmware soon with the better flights modes. More affordable memory. The SSD drives on this thing are EXPENSIVE. I'm sure that as technology improves, the cost will start going down.... but watch out, the memory will get you. Plan on spending another grand on memory.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Product.? Worse Customer Support in history!!!! I have two of these and 2 Phantom Pro 4's I cannot get help from customer service if it meant my life.? I have spent over 90 hours and still am at square one. I do not recommend DJI in any way.? There are other companies out that are producing quality product as well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inspire 2 with Apple ProRes The Inspire 2 is great machine, but be aware that the DJI ProRes Activation Key is for a single Inspire 2 serial number. Professional/Commercial users who expect to have a backup Inspire for important shoots will have to have multiple activation keys for ProRes use at $500 or $1,300 each.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bird This new Inspire 2 is super amazing flight stability are improved the construction is solid and the safety features are a great addition. I don't have much to complain about it's worth the investment don't get me wrong I'm sure bugs will be found but as of right now I don't have any issue for what I use it for. In case anyone wanted to know I'm using it with the X4S camera.
    Date published: 2017-01-26
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes Purchased CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes drone does not have either. B&H took no responsibility and pointed me to DJI. We all know DJI has zero customer service and will not help anyone. I was expecting more from B&H.
    Date published: 2018-01-25
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS! It came with a dead defective battery that wouldn't charge which I can look past because batteries aren't always reliable. However the drone didn't have either Cinema DNG or Apple Prores licenses installed or even available for activation in DJI Assistant 2. B&H did not send any activation code which DJI said they were suppose to. Had to call DJI which we all know their customer service is a NIGHTMARE. This all sucks when you spend almost 7 thousand dollars on something.
    Date published: 2018-05-19
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Endless software problems Endless problems with geofencing on this. It a professional drone but DJI doesn't trust professionals to fly responsibly. Do not try to fly this someplace where there is no internet or may find yourself unable to fly because you can't log into the DJIGo app. This happened to me and I lost a client.

    Does the base package come with any batteries for the inspire 2? and do the inspire 1 batteries work with the 2?
    Asked by: Mark
    Its comes with a pair of batteries. But keep in mind the Inspire 2 is intended to be flown with two batteries. So the included batteries are enough for a single flight.

    This needs a Gimbal and Lens?
    Asked by: dave k.
    Hello Dave. Yes, the aircraft will need a gimbal and lens. Thanks.

    Will this aircraft fly if I do not attach a camera? In other words, can I practice flying it without risking an attached camera?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes. The good thing is that the Inspire 2 has a built-in FPV camera as well so that you can get a FPV view even if you don't have a X5S or X4S camera installed.
