    Still No Competition for I2?

    Impressive project, no doubt and hats off ... But it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic, which is about mass-manufactured-in-West equivalent of DJI Inspire 2 with at least the same camera gimbal options ...

    Still No Competition for I2?

    There is, was, and will be many successful attempts to build commercial UAV on North American soil, by a handful talented and competent nerds ... The point is that no one will be as affordable as Inspire 2, assuming at least equal capabilities. The $25K price tag for awesome AltaX drone...

    Should we film in ATTI mode

    It doesn't matter if you record video in ATTI or P-Mode. It matters how you control your Inspire in windy conditions and ATTI. High above any obstacles, yes, you'll benefit from smooth-er movements. In tight scenery you're asking for troubles ...

    Still No Competition for I2?

    You're absolutely correct about advantages of Inspire class drones used in budget productions, no doubt. What I'm trying to say is that the marketing niche in this category is not big enough to justify R&D efforts of DJI, not to mention much smaller players with limited resources. Inspire 2 is...

    Still No Competition for I2?

    All of the above mentioned is probably true, although I wouldn't blame FAA entirely and only for the lack of "Made in USA" or wherever else competition. The robotics obsession is - somehow - exclusive to Asia's modern technocratic culture, therefore Western-ish nations simply can't supply R&D...

    My beloved Inspire 2 is looking for a new home ...

    Shims are coming with Ultimadrone Inspire 2 Safety Kit, sold separately and included in this package. I believe they're selling shims only as well, but these aren't cheap. Works charmingly though. Ultimadrone Inspire 2 Safety Kit | Atellani Official Store

    My beloved Inspire 2 is looking for a new home ...

    The title says all ... At the age of 73 I must trim the inventory a bit and deal with remaining, lighter members of my 5 drones fleet for aerial imagery ... With regrets, however, since this one is a true gem. Here we go: This drone is in mint condition, RTF. She was hand selected for best...

    My beloved Inspire 2 is looking for a new home ...

    I'm almost sure I'll be severely punished for this post here, but it's worth trying ... The title says all. I need to trim my inventory a bit, this bird is in impeccable shape ... If interested, please e-mail me [email protected] ...

    Fly over water,old problem new solution

    You've missed the purpose of this device totally ... It was developed to merely holds the remains on water surface after destructive collision, not to land with no damage. No float will protect the drone in case of hard landing. Controlled landing on water is no brainer whatsoever, crash landing...

    Fly over water,old problem new solution

    Although Restube itself seems to be the most reliable self-inflating safety buoy on the market recently, the developer failed to demonstrate the rigidity of holding device. The forces involved in Inspire's impact with water at 50mph speed are enormous, probably equal to hard landing on the...

    TB50 Battery and Battery Station "Safe" Firmware - Trying to answer "What Firmware Should My Batteries Be On?"

    Yes, this is the latest, apparently final firmware version for TB50 batteries. Go 4 app will let you know anyway, reporting firmware inconsistency and offering the option to fix the issue.

    Attention Inspire 2 and Matrice owners.. Cendence 4 sale ""SOLD""

    This is a bargain price indeed, considering that for Patch Antenna alone they're asking 299USD recently! If I'll be on the market for Cendence ... I'll jump on this offer, knowing from my experience that Rich's stuff is kept in impeccable shape ...

    So what is your Inspire 2 Maintenance program?

    Flying any drone in sub-zero temps (C) is not good idea for many reasons. However, Inspire's screw mechanism should work smoothly in -10C, assuming that the screw itself is perfectly straight. Hard landing can bend the screw.

    ssd card for inspire 2

    I don't know what was your reasoning for purchasing DJI Inspire 2 ... Undoubtedly amazing machine, but only experienced photographer or filmmaker can truly appreciate all goods and options she's offering. For average Youtuber (no offence) with no previous experience in aerial imagery this is...
