DJI Inspire 1 with Dual Remotes
The DJI Inspire 1, top-of-the-market drone can handle wind speed resistance of up to 10 meters per second, reaching an altitude of 4,500 feet and speeds up 22 meters per second without wind. The DJI Inspire 1 comes with a 4k quality camera and a high-capacity battery that gives you about 18 minutes of airtime, which makes this advanced and lightweight drone efficient, powerful, and productive.
With this much freedom, you will also want precise control. The DJI Inspire 1 comes with a single remote that gives you just that. With this single remote, you can control all aspects of the drone’s movements as well as camera operation. You can control nose direction, forward and backward pitch, and rotation, among other things. And you can take full advantage of the 4k camera by adjusting different settings and choosing which scenes to shoot, all while your drone is in flight.
The single controller gives you everything. So, why would you need or even want a second remote controller? You’re probably thinking that a second remote couldn’t possibly offer any more of an advantage over the Inspire 1. But you might actually find that getting dual remotes is not only necessary but imperative when shooting more complicated shots.
Let’s say you want to get a moving shot of an elusive Ring-Tailed Lemur you see in the jungle. It’s a beautiful creature and you have a beautiful flying camera drone to capture the experience. The only problem is that you don’t have enough fingers or concentration to control both the drone’s flight and the camera features. You may have only a few short minutes before the animal scampers away. Luckily, by getting the DJI Inspire 1 with dual remotes, you can expertly control the drone on your remote while your friend skillfully adjusts the camera on her remote. That way, you won’t miss a single second of the Ring-Tailed Lemur’s travels through the trees.
With these more complicated shots, you’ll be glad you have more than one remote. And, in fact, you can connect several additional remotes to the drone, beyond just the one extra, depending on how many people you need to accomplish your flight endeavors. The first remote is called the master remote while any other remotes connected to the drone are called slave remotes. However, remember that no more than 6 slave remote controllers can be hooked up at the same time.
There is very little difference between the abilities of a master remote and a slave remote. As I implied briefly above, the master remote operates the aircraft’s orientation while the slave remote controls camera and gimbal function. If you do connect more than one slave controller to the drone, only the first will be able to control the gimbal while the other slave remotes can only set camera parameters and view the video feed.
There may be a project that you start where having all six slave controllers is beneficial. But, getting the DJI Inspire with dual remotes should be enough to accomplish any photography or videography endeavor.
