    Inspire 2 durability reports from all of us

    I'll be very interested to see how this thread develops. There seems to be a lot of scaremongering going on with the I2 which substantially outweigh any actual detailed reports of failures. The only thing I've done to mine so far is add the gimbal protection kit which seems like a wise choice...

    X5R Artefacts!

    Did you ever figure this out? We just picked up an X5r showing the same problem, but much worse. Weird X5r artefacts

    Weird X5r artefacts

    Hi all, I wonder if you can help. In the hope of making our Inspire 1 last another year we decided to upgrade to an X5r so that we can increase the quality of our deliverables to clients. We purchased a used X5r which arrived yesterday after winging it's way over from the states. As soon as I...

    New 1345T Quick Release Props

    I don't think I've seen this mentioned so please forgive me and delete away if I missed it. When browsing the DJI store today I noticed that they are now selling the new Quick Release props and mounts as separate items. Anyone tried them yet? Props... Buy Inspire 1 Series - 1345T Quick-Release...

    U.S Gov. to require drone registration

    There are certainly a lot of unanswered questions but I think there also some sound points made. I just think that education and responsibility are the key to safe usage and a move to register drones with the NAA could be a good way to make sure people realise that they're not just playing with...

    U.S Gov. to require drone registration

    I don't really understand the pushback by everyone, to me it seems this is a positive move that will help generate more safe operators. Of course people who want to do evil things won't be effected, but thats besides the point! Registering guns doesn't stop the bad guys but that doesn't mean...

    Great demo of X5 bitrate

    It's a little tough to look at a YouTube video and judge compression artifacts from a 60 Mbps camera. I'd expect the video was compressed down ttwice since being recorded and is likely being viewed at less than 3 Mbps on YT (if 1080). I think aerial video may just be one area where a smaller...

    Can one lose connectivity while Setting waypoints which cause RTH?

    Just don't fly behind the dome to set the next waypoint, you could take a different route there and it won't effect the waypoint flight. With regards to what will happen, best bet is to try it, start setting some waypoints in a test area and then switch off the controller, the Inspire will...

    Firmware V1.4.0.10 released 7th September

    I think it makes a lot of sense, in fact more than if the waypoints had to be programmed on the map. This way you can line up your starting shot record that point and then fly to the point where you want the shot to end and record that as well. It would be very hard to set up angles for the shot...

    I'm getting the same problem and on the DJI forums there are a few people going back to the previous firmware because of this issue.
