With the Inspire 2 Standard Kit with Zenmuse X5S Gimbal & MFT 15mm/1.7 ASPH Lens from DJI, you get a complete aerial imaging solution right out of the box. Included with the Inspire 2 is the Zenmuse X5S gimbal camera with a 15mm Micro Four Thirds lens. This provides you with the capability of capturing footage at up to 5.2K resolution at 30 fps in CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes. It is also capable of recording up to 4K video at a smooth 60 fps.

As you fly the magnesium-aluminum-clad Inspire 2, all the recording functionality is processed by its 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.

Advanced Obstacle Sensing

Forward and downward vision systems enable the Inspire 2 to detect obstacles up to 98.4' 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 and Composition. 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.

TapFly

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.

ActiveTrack

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 can 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 656' 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 can deliver both 1080p and 720p video, as well as the FPV view to the pilot and camera operator. Users can also switch between 2.4 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 can continue flight long enough for a safe landing. At the same time, the Inspire 2 propulsion system is driven by 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

Great but training is needed

By Jens
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-27

I'm not giving a 5 because DJI should have training videos on this amazing flying machine. This is a very complex drone and for the price of this drone there should be training videos on how to use it. I have 2 advice's, buy the screen from DJI a phone or I Pad is useless, watch videos on YouTube on how to set video settings. It is a great drone but you do need ground school

Seems like DJI forgot they made the Inspire 2

By David

The purchase of the DJI has been a chore, to say the least. I want to start by saying, if you are a Mac user; don't even think about any kind of connection to the Inspire 2. The connection software is dated 2018 and will NOT work on any OS since. I learned this after spending an hour on the phone last night trying to get the Apple ProRes upgrade to work. After I was told they didn't have a current path to connect my Mac to my Inspire 2, I told him that I found it hard to believe that I am the only Mac user to purchase the upgrade in the past three years and there has to be something out there to make this work. That's the most recent issue with DJI, the first issue is with registering DJI Care Refresh on the Inspire 2. I purchased the Inspire 2 two weeks ago and tried to register it with DJI Care Refresh with NO success. DJI would not recognize the serial number on the box, on the aircraft nor on the invoice and did not have an answer for me for what I should do until AFTER the 48 registration period. That's when they told me I need to contact the place I purchased it to purchase DJI Care Refresh, so I called B&H. They could not figure out how to register the DJI Care Refresh and told me that the person who purchases DJI products for B&H would have to talk to DJI to get my Inspire 2 registered in DJI Care Refresh. It has been 4 business days and I am STILL waiting to hear about how I am supposed to sign my $6,000 drone up for DJI Care Refresh. If you purchase the DJI Inspire 2, expect a great video image that won't be in Apple Pro Res (which you paid for the upgrade, but cannot use because you have a Mac) and won't be repaired if broken because you STILL can not sign up for DJI Care Refresh

Purchased a DJI inspire 2 with the zenmuse X7 with in 7 hours of flying one battery went completely dead The zenmuse 7 failed and would not update firmware which made the unit useless ( I had to purchase a completely new unit to save a job) B&H refused to do anything about and shoved me off to DJI - After years of purchases here...This will be my last.

Inspire 2 Replacement

Date: 2020-07-06

Ordered another I2 as my main I2 had an EMI malfunction. I was imaging crop circles at very low altitude and got a warning of an obstruction from an irrigation pivot. I started to switch to manual to cancel the flight plan, but the pivot radio transmitter sent out a signal and the I2 flew into the pivot. B&H came to the rescue and got me fixed up with a spare in quick time. Very happy with the replacement I2 and B&H service.

well built drone but software glitches will destroy it.

By Paul

This drone is well built but still has a lot of software bugs. I've been flying Dji products for years, the Phantom 4, Phantom 4 V2, Mavic Pro, Mavic Pro 2 and have had good success. This drone, however, even after updating all the firmware and familiarizing myself with it before flying, it crashed on the third flight. The DJI go 4 app crashed mid-flight with the notification of wait or cancel. I at first pressed wait but nothing happened. Then I pressed cancel hoping to restart the app. The Mavic 2 Pro app occasionally crashed mid-flight but just held it's position until I restarted the app. No such luck with the Inspire 2. It immediately returned to the take-off location, however, since the app crashed, it must have turned off the obstacle avoidance system and although I took off about 15 feet away from my car, it crashed into the car, not only defacing the car, it also destroyed the drone. Needless to say, I'm not happy. I am not going to repair this drone. I'm going to set it on my coffee table as a testament to my own stupidity for paying over $12,000 for this and to remind myself never to do this again. Unless you have money to burn, stay away from this drone. And yes, I know I could have still controlled the return with the controller, even though I couldn't see through the camera. I couldn't know the drone was racing back to the take-off point while I was trying to restart the app. By the time I realized it was about to crash into the car, it was too late.

Great service, arrive quickly, no issues, thank you

This machine performs as advertised. I capture images with the X5S camera and find it to be crisp and clear. The Inspire 2 was purchased because I wanted to offer high calibre video for a promotional shoot. I operate professionally and will use the system for mapping and video production as well as simple aerial photo. I am comparing this unit with the other multi-copters in my fleet from various manufacturers such as Autel Robotics and YUNEEC.
