Beyond Futuristic Cameras
The Inspire 1 V2.0 offers an excellent aerial photo and video solution for professionals as well as for enthusiasts looking for a simple, ready-to-fly drone with camera-swapping potential.
The Inspire is the first all-in-one, ready to fly package that can satisfy all kinds of users. The Inspire's camera rotates 320 degrees and tilts more than 90 degrees. In addition it has greater manual camera settings control, so if you've got a pilot watching the drone in the sky and making sure it doesn't run into things, a cameraman can take fine control of the vision.
Inspire 1 V2.0 quadcopter captures excellent 4K-resolution video. Its camera is removable, giving it the potential for upgrades and is also compatible with a handheld mount. There is an option for two-controller operation with one for piloting and the other for camera control.
One of the main advantages of the Inspire 1 over other similar models is the camera and gimbal. They can be removed by releasing a lock and twisting it off. This not only makes it safer for travel, but it makes it easier to upgrade with better or different cameras.
From the carbon-fiber landing gear that lifts and lowers automatically on take-off and landing, to its specially designed brushless motors that are powerful and efficient, the Inspire 1 V2.0 has been built for high performance. It's noticeably swifter and smoother than the Phantoms. It can handle high winds with ease and the larger body makes it easier to spot in the sky.
The Inspire 1 shoots amazing 4k professional footage. It comes with the advanced Zenmuse X3 camera and it has the ability to connect a second transmitter and separate camera control and flight control. If you have a friend who doesn’t know how to fly but knows how to film, you can keep flying it while your friend can operate the camera seamlessly.
Inspire 1 V2.0 reaches speeds of up to 50 miles per hour, which means that you can follow cars or trains. The flight control is easy even at high speed and its stability is not affected. Even during sharp turns the Inspire 1 maintains strong agility and as a pilot you rarely feel any difference in monitoring the flight.
With a 5700 mAh battery, the Inspire 1 can stay in the air for up to twenty minutes. It may look relatively standard in comparison to other similar drones, but taking in consideration its size, weight and payload, this is definitely impressed.
The Inspire 1 V2.0 is very large, and yet with that unusual weight comes an immense amount of power. The Inspire 1 V2.0 can pump its propellers to enter into a new era of drone filming. It can chase even speed boats to grab aerial water-sports shots, or fast skiers. But be very careful though, this huge machine is not meant for beginners and amateurs.
The Inspire 1 V2.0 has a special set of sensors under its wings. These 2 sensors and an optical camera point downwards, helping users watch the ground below. The sensors are supposed to keep stability and during many flight tests, slight to mild winds had almost no impact on the platform.
When the Inspire 1 actually takes off, the arms with the attached landing gear on them are raised up so that the camera is lowered and the propellers are not intruding the video shootings. The raising of the arms completely eliminates this previously annoying problem. The ultrasonic sensors underneath provide instructions to the Inspire 1 V2.0 when to lower its landing gear. This transformation takes about three seconds and occurs about three feet off the ground. What this means is that you can't take it down too fast, otherwise you can damage the camera which is completely exposed after the arms have been raised.
The Inspire adds an extra layer of optical and ultrasound technology to keep it in position more accurately closer to the ground. This is essential in situations where there's no GPS signal. In fact it works at a much higher fidelity than GPS signals can provide, so you can fly the Inspire indoors and in difficult conditions and still enjoy its stable positioning.
Inspire 1 V2.0 streams video back from the drone in stunning 720p high definition to its Lightbridge transmitter, a feature you might be familiar with from the Phantom series. The Lightbridge transmitter works up to 1.25 miles away, an impressive distance for anyone looking to survey an area or explore a mountain side.
This feature connects to an iOS or Android device with a USB cable. Even though you might have the system to run it, some devices capable of streaming video simply won’t produce the quality your videos deserve. The Lightbridge system works best on tablets and high-res smart phones.
In conclusion, the Inspire 1 V2.0 is an excellent ready to fly, out of the box drone. How does it justify its relatively higher price tag? By offering higher speed, greater power, stronger stability and multi-controller capabilities. The rotating camera on the Inspire, coupled with the fact that the propellers get right out of frame, makes it a much more convenient aerial device for shooting professional films.
Filmmakers on a budget will be able to work around most of the Phantom 3's shortcomings using a little creative piloting, but the Inspire holds its ground as the most sophisticated and advanced all-in-one flying camera you can buy.
Take your creative enthusiasm to the skies!
