Hmm, I think it is connected with the recent release of Phantom 3, not with the development of the product.I saw that email as nothing more than a "We have not forgotten so stop asking" teaser. No new info. The fact that are not yet taking preorders says a lot. They are not even confident enough to hold on to your money yet.
Well I hope so, these 3 alone (Ground Station, Live Streaming, Director) will give the I1 the well deserved edge we all hoped for and along with a better camera will make this a truly awesome UAV. We'll have to wait and see, cheers MarkFrom the DJI email today:
What's Coming Next
In the next few months, three main features announced with the Phantom 3 will be coming to the Inspire 1:
Plan and execute autonomous flight paths by telling your Inspire 1 where to go and what to do at up to 100 points on a map.
This feature has been long desired and will greatly increase the utility of the Inspire. Hopefully, this enhancement in navigation will also include POI and Home Lock, which were also promised in the initial feature set at product release.
Share what you’re seeing, as you’re flying, with anyone around the world with YouTube live streaming compatibility.
"Let a 1000 live videos Bloom (sorry, Philip)."
Cut and edit your favorite footage instantly, as the built-in Director pieces together your clips and adds in music, ready to be shared.
GoPro Studio Lite? For a "professional" platform? Waste of valuable developer time, IMHO.
Also coming soon, the Inspire 1 handheld camera mount will enable your to take your camera from the sky to the ground and capture footage for any of your needs.
Product release date? Price? Audio capability/features? It's 2Q, so where is this baby?
Lastly, the DJI SDK will be made available for the Inspire 1, allowing you to create customized apps that control and gather data from your flight platform in new ways.
The "Future of Possible" will soon be here! Geeks, man your keyboards!
