I also shoot videos from a boat, and wondering how will I be able to take off or land with the Inspire 1 from a boat. I hope DJI will fix this issue soon. BTW, any idea how to catch the the I1 by hand? Cheers.
I am sure DJI will fix this and we should probably rely on the fact that DJi people read these posts. With Phantom users as their base for the Inspire, they can't ignore this issue. So many people are accustomed to launching from boats and filming all the beauty mother nature has to offer. Below is my sample of a shot I did recently. At least 50% of shots were launched from a 24ft powerboat.
847 number? You in chicago?Greetings, I have a brand-new inspire one production model with four batteries,pelican case and Samsung tablet for sale. I use UAVs for Marine research. Unfortunately we learned today that the inspire one will not allow the motors to start up while on a moving surface. The rocking of the boat does not allow us to power the motors up. I bought the aircraft from the New York distributor and they only offer in store credit. It turns out I'm stuck with the phantom 2 forMarine launching. I'm only looking to get out what I paid for it. Please call 847-502-8227 for details.

We eagerly await your flight controller where updates and fixes will no doubt be instantaneous.Several weeks is total ********. I can't stand dji. Reading through this forum is pathetic. This was not ready for production. Customer service sucks blah blah blah. I will be searching for a way to hold them accountable.
This is where you went wrong. This IS rocket science. This industry is still very fresh and the machines are incredibly complex, especially considering their size. I for one understand and accept these temporary issues we are experiencing. I even expected them when I purchased my machine. I think DJI are doing a decent job in resolving them. The fact that 1 person reports a niche issue on a forum which gets attention from DJI representatives and even gets the promise to be fixed by their R&D department is pretty impressive if you ask me. No, I am not paid by DJI to post this nor do I work for them.This isn't rocket science.
This is not new. The last firmware update allowed for this. It's not like they have to go rewrite The firmware. Why are so many people up DJI defenders?I have one thing to say to everybody who reads this,and I promise it's the last thing I'm going to say because it's frustrating to see what others write.it's simple, remember that you're buying a $3000 plus product that is supposed to work. It is supposed to be a finished product. Pretend you were buying a brand-new car. The first day you driving home it drives itself and your garage, the next day the fucking wheels fall off. And then the next day it won't start because your driveway is on an angle. Would you have an issue with the car company that you purchased it from?remember we are consumers and they are a company selling this product. There has to be a line where they are accountable when we pay them up front for something that doesn't work as advertised. This isn't rocket science. From reading the forum it is clear this thing wasn't readyand anyone's saying otherwise is a fool. So people where is the line?
Lok at the bright side nick.. at least two people actually went out of their way to help you and the because they did dji is making a modification for people like you who want to fly off of a boat..that's pretty awesome in my opinion. .Nick, you really need to get over yourself, and calm down a bit. If you have issues with this product the usual remedy is to take it up with the maker of that product. I have issues with GM about my car, but I don't go around posting on a forum to vent my anger, I call the GM dealer and their service department. Letting us know how disappointed you are once is fine. Every body here ought to get their say. But to continue to harp on this issue to the point of repeating yourself is just plain rude to those of us trying to educate ourselves on what this product can and cannot do.
