Hello,

I am new to the inspire forum and I have had experience with flying DJI drones. I am thinking about trying Inspire 2 and I wanted your help as you have more experience in the inspire series that I do.

I am wondering how much would a used inspire 2 with the x4s camera cost? Or at least in what range the price would be.

I saw some individuals selling I2 with x4s for $1600 and found some that are $2300 and more.

I appreciate your advice on this.

Thank you

For what kind of job? The x4s is with 1" sensor (20mp) and you can do the same with mavic 2 pro. The mavic is lighter and easier to transport and deploy. The Inspire 2 is upgradeable, you can later get x7 and prores or raw support while mavic is not.

Have you tried typing in ‘Inspire 2 for sale’ in the search field?
This will give you classified listings and a guide as to what people are selling them for.

Any large disparity in price will likely be the Pro Res / CinemaDng licenses which may be included on the higher priced aircraft.

I searched the classified listing but I was not sure if the $1600 or so for the Inspire 2 with x4s camera and three batteries is worth it or not.

I’ve got both the x5s and x4s cameras for my Inspire 2 and I definitely recommend getting the x5s if you can afford it. You’re able to swap lenses with the x5s and there’s lots of quality lenses out there. I’ve got a couple Olympus lenses (25&45mm) and personally I think they’re much better than the DJI lenses. I’ve also got a Laowa 7.5mm wide angle lens I use for landscape photography.
The x4s takes very good pictures and videos and I kept it for backup to my x5s, just in case!
It really depends on how much you’re wanting to spend.

I’d be very careful with that because it sounds too good to be true.
The x4s camera alone is worth around $450, batteries sell for $150 each, and the Inspire 2 sells for $2999 refurbished.
Something just doesn’t make sense with that advertisement!! Be very careful when purchasing a used Inspire2!!
I’ve got the Inspire 2 that I purchased in 2017 and I wouldn’t sell just the aircraft without any camera for less than $2000. The x5s camera is worth more than a thousand dollars!

I appreciate your response. I agree. I was thinking I’d get started with the x4s and then move to the x5s when the budget permits.

That’s exactly what made me come ask here because i was hesitant to go with the price. And I appreciate your input on this. I was thinking that x4s is not desired and that’s why the price is reduced, but now I think it’s suspicious for sure.

Only go with the Inspire 2 if your primary focus is going to be making quality video's / photographs. If you want to do any kind of other work you'll be deeply frustrated and disappointed.
