    Inspire 2 FPV camera broken - DJI RMA assistance NIGHTMARE

    Hello everybody, I've been owning an Inspire 2 for some time now (almost from the launch), and recently I experienced a strange behaviour with the FPV camera. I need to premise that I already returned the X5S for a vibration on the yaw axis, a TB50 battery for unbalance at 1 month and 11 charges...

    Pilot Error Crash (Inspire 2)

    I had some very bad luck today and crashed my Inspire 2, and its so my fault, not a pleasant experience at all - almost feel like I need a support group - thus my posting today. But I did learn something, don't mix up the stick controls and I should have left the max decent rate at 4 m/s and...

    Inspire 1 V2 arms out of allignmnet after crash.

    Landed my Inspire in a tree. It fell approx 20 ft during recovery. Landed on, and destroyed gimbal and mounting plate. That's fixable fairly easily. However, the arms are now mis-alligned. I can get them to move in both directions but closer inspection reveals that one of the "ears" on the...

    I1 V2 dropped out of the sky at 11%

    So my first post here, unfortunately it's a bad one but from what I've seen on the forum you guys are a wealth of information here. I've read a bunch of other posts on the I2 and issues and whatnot, but nothing that matches what happened to me. I was flying around, nothing high speed or high...

    New and Fangled Anti Crash Designs for Drones.

    Safety is a number one concern when it comes to designing a crash-proof design for drones. There is the Gimball,the airbag and the parachute. Crazy designs for which practicality just goes right out the window. Where did it all come from? Was the Mars landing helpful in any capacity? How about...

    Karma Makes A Smashing Entrance Into Old Lady's Apartment

    Yes, you have heard correctly. Just picture it. Your apartment is located on the 27th floor of an older apartment building in New York City. The view is probably not the greatest but thankfully, you are far away from everything. Certainly street noise is not a problem. Suddenly, you hear a loud...

    Dunk into the ground during low-altitude flight

    OK, so I've gotten around to writing up my little horror story from last week so I can share my experience and get your thoughts on exactly what happened. Last wednesday, I went out to the Iskar lake to get some nice golden hour footage. As I do in low temperature conditions, I left the car...

    Oh Dear! Inspire Pro (X5) vs P4P

    Hi guys, My Inspire Pro took it upon itself to ignore my commands completely and get itself tangled in a tree only to then fall 30 feet down to the concrete despite my best efforts to run towards it and catch it. The landing gear came down then it went into RTH state, started heading towards a...

    Inspire 1Pro switches to ATTI and crashes

    Scary moments yesterday afternoon: after flying in P-GPS mode with 19 satellites present, I suddenly saw a message: "Compass error, exiting P-GPS mode" after which it switched to ATTI mode by itself; the controller still being in P-mode. What followed is funnily enough not recorded bij the DJI...

    DJI Flight Data Analysis? Inspire fell out of the air.

    Hello, I was curious if anyone here has had any experience with their I1 pinwheeling out of the air and then sending its corpse into DJI only for them to go silent. Now, I 100% understand that customer service reps at large companies usually have 0% access to internal wonks. But I have had...
