DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter Review


DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter Review

Inspire 1 Design

The design of the Inspire is pretty simple and lightweight—and even more advanced because of this. The body and frame of the Inspire 1 is mostly made up of carbon fiber. The arms can be easily maneuvered to raise or lower the body of the drone depending on what you want to do next. If you want to remove or attach the camera and gimbal, you can raise the body, and if you want the arms out of the way for film shots, you can lower the body. A lot of online reviews say the design of the Inspire is very advanced and ahead of so many other drone competitors.


Inspire 1 Flight

Flight for the Inspire is effortless and graceful. The drone can reach speeds of 22 m/s and responds so accurately and sensitively to every command from the controller. The flight simulator on the app is just as sensitive so you can practice flying your drone from the comfort of your home. The Inspire is also durable and is stable even in moderate wind conditions.


Inspire 1 Battery

The Inspire 1 comes with a fully-integrated, high-capacity 4500mAh battery called the DJI Intelligent Flight Battery. It has a voltage of 22.2V. It weighs about 1.3lb or 570g, bringing the entire drone to 6.5lb or 2.9kg, which makes this drone both efficient and powerful. It also gives you about 18 minutes of flight time which is a bit above average for a drone, though admittedly not at the highest end of flight time. You will be alerted to the battery status while in flight—which is great if you are getting close to running out of juice.

Inspire 1 Camera

The 4k camera was designed specifically for the Inspire, so is especially well-suited for flying drones. More so than the Gopro camera—which many people swear by. It can take 12 megapixel photos and the camera lens has 9 elements that work together to give you an undistorted, clear image. The 94 degree field of view is just right and tends to reduce the amount of fisheye that you get with some cameras.

Inspire 1 Controller

The Inspire 1 controller gets 5-star ratings from a lot of online reviews. The remote’s control makes flying the Inspire 1 almost intuitive. One reviewer, when testing out the DJI Inspire 1 for the first time, was shocked by how smoothly the drone responded to direction from the remote. Other reviewers commented on how the remote is well weighted, and how it is easy to reach all the switches and buttons. The main issues that people seemed to be having were just with turning on the remote or not having a cable working in the USB port. Beyond that, it seems like most reviewers have had really positive responses to the Inspire 1 remote.

The reported problems that the Inspire has are mostly due to poor operation rather than any fault of design. There are a few things that could be improved upon, but they are minor preferences, and overall, the DJI Inspire 1 is a great choice of drone for any photography or videography needs.
