I make no implied statement as to the accuracy of what I'm stating, or that it will resolve your issues. I'm only stating that helped me and it may help you too. My saga started with...

    Mount at rear changes C o Gravity

    I printed this from ThingiVerse - Samsung 360 Gear mount for DJI Inspire 1 by ByteSlinger Basically you mount the 360 camera just like the x3 or X5, but in place of it. You won't get video because no X3 but you should still get telemetry. I printed it in PLA and flex PLA for the washer, or...

    Inspire 1 Pro strange buzzing sound

    Well, all hope is not lost. A really good tool to add your set is a hemostat. Either curved or straight or both. You should be able to find one at a local drug store for 6-£10. A hemostat may be small enough and long enough to reach around or through the fan to carefully push or move the...

    Inspire 1 Pro strange buzzing sound

    I'm wondering if it's coming from one of the cooling fans? Either the fan is going bad or maybe a wire is rubbing against it?

    Anyone use this charger HTRC-0053 H200W AC/DC Charger?

    Not sure what search engine you use, but I found this... Original HTRC HT-0053 H200AC/DC 200W Professional Balance Charger/Discharger for RC Helicopter Airplane DJI Inspire 1 Phantom 3 Series RC Quadcopter Personally, since the smarts are in the battery, not the charger, this seems like...

    Low Altitude Flying - 2-4 Feet From Ground ... (CLOSED - I have what I needed)

    There are a lot of inexpensive cell phone gimbals ($100 or less) that should do the trick. I personally have an old Zhiyun rig that would stabilize, pan/tilt the phone, so no bending over. My OSMO with the stick and extension cable with the Z-Axis would do that too but even used is a more...

    Problem loss of control dji inspire 1

    It sounds like you were using Home Lock with the Flight Mode switch in the F position. Refer to the manual under intelligent flight modes and IOC in the Appendix. What you are describing is normal depending on the direction the Inspire is facing. If it is facing away from you then, Left...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    It would be nice to find out if the BMS can be put into "self calibration" mode again like a secret button combination when re-celling. I always figured a long term solution would be re-celling since the power heads with BMS are no longer manufactured, but cells might be able to be sourced...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    BTW - I also have to believe that all of the default BMS parameters for TB47s and TB48s regardless of how many are exactly the same within those respective models. I would assume that DJI has a certain quality expectation around cell specs from the battery manufacturer allowing them to...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    My intent wasn't to ruffle any feathers. I'm just sad and angered to see Inspire 1's end up on some e-waste barge due to a lack of batteries. To me the Inspire 1 is a technological work of art like a Bang & Olufsen Beogram linear tracking turntable, B&O Beocenter, Nakamichi System One, vintage...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    The thing is, I don't need someone here to be my dad. I have 3 grown, successful children, and 4 grand children, 1 who is also autistic. There isn't any spelling the end about it, the Inspire 1 is at an end. Maybe it's my feeling that DJI is the Apple of drones thing, but DJI is a closed...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    Unfortunately, the DJI approach of having a BMS with every battery adds weight, cost, and makes adapting newer future high energy density battery technologies to existing drones more difficult than it needs to be. An older brushed RC heli I have used to use a 6 cell Nicd pack. Back then, no...

    Cruzroy Battery Mod

    My Inspire 1 was DJI Factory re-certified. I bought it 1.5 years ago on good faith that I might get 5 years out of it. Little did I know that DJI had already discontinued batteries before I bought my drone. I should have known, DJI is the Apple of drones. Fortunately I bought 3 batteries...

    Battery Mod Info

    Reece28Battery on Facebook as of March is no longer doing Inspire 1 battery mods. I should have jumped with Vincent Ng when I had the chance. Heli Engadin Inspire 1 products seems to be the only commercially viable battery option at the moment. If anyone is interested, there's been some...

    Battery Mod Info

    Well, from what I recall, one of CruzRoy's contacts in China had already cracked the BMS to make the 12,000MaH battery he tested, resetting the cycle count and setting the higher capacity. Either that, or they may have been a former DJI employee with the keys to unlock the BMS. Personally, an...
