DJI Inspire 1 Guide
DJI Inspire 1 Guide
The most important thing you can do before you fly your DJI Inspire 1 is research. Do your homework. Figure out how to fly the thing first and how the pieces operate. Know what each button on the remote does and how much command you’ll have over your drone. Be the expert on your craft.
This will save you a lot of frustration when you start to fly, and you will have so much more power over your flying and your photography.
So how do you do your research? You can always search online for reviews, how-to’s, and videos. But we’re going to talk about one of the most direct and correct places to get your info: the DJI Inspire 1 guide. If you go onto the DJI website and go to the Inspire 1 downloads tab, you will find many manuals that you can download. In fact, there are about 10 different manuals here. These include a quick start guide, a user manual, and safety guidelines. Now, I’m not saying you have to read every word of every one of these guides, just know that they are there if you need extra detail. If you need more info on the propeller’s lock, for example, you can peruse the quick start guide for the propeller’s lock to find just what you need.
I think the two most helpful guides you will find are the Inspire 1 Quick Start Guide and the Inspire 1 User Manual. The quick start guide is great for getting your drone in the air as soon as possible—obviously. It is only about 10 pages and a lot of that is made up of helpful pictures and diagrams. It will tell you briefly about what you will see on the body of the craft and the remote controller. And it will tell you a few things about safe flight like calibrating your compass and the return to home feature.
It will then give you a few instructions (again, brief) about how to use your Inspire 1. It will instruct you on downloading the app, charging your battery, preparing your craft for flight, and then flight itself, among other things. The quick start guide is short but very helpful if you don’t have a lot of time to do an in-depth study of your drone.
The Inspire 1 User Manual, on the other hand, is much longer (64 pages) as it gives you detailed instructions and explanations on just about every aspect of the Inspire 1. It even has a section that tells you how to best use the manual. Some of its other sections include subject matter on the product profile, specifics on the aircraft, the remote controllers, the gimbal and camera, the app, and flight. It also has a frequently asked questions section and an appendix, which are both super helpful for addressing specific concerns.
Even if you don’t end up reading the user manual from cover to cover and you don’t have every word of the propeller’s manual memorized, it’s still good to have these guides on hand.
