Quadcopter and remote:

Visual positioning system

The Inspire 1 Pro makes operating easier than ever by incorporating a visual positioning system. The visual positioning system uses a trio of small sensors to monitor surroundings, and will allow the Inspire 1 Pro to hold its position indoors and land/take-off with just a push of a button.

Three-axis stabilising gimbal

A three-axis stabilising gimbal holds the camera and automatically corrects rough flight movement for smooth video.

3.5 km control and live view range

The control and live view range has been increased and will now work at up to 3.5km.

High Performance Rotors

A newly developed carbon fiber compound ensures excellent performance with increased stability while the same geometry of previous Z-blade series, known for aerodynamic efficiency, is used for the optimum flying experience.

Quick-release locking mechanism

A new quick-release locking mechanism greatly speeds up rotor mounting, and provides additional rotor security while extending the lifespan of the rotors.

Stronger motor

New motors increase thrust by over 30% over the original Inspire 1, ensuring responsive and accurate flight even when using the heavier Zenmuse X5 camera and lens.

New more advanced ESC's

Motor speed is critical to flight, and each motor is managed individually by the Electronic Speed Controllers. Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC) with sinusoidal drives replace the square wave drive of traditional ESCs, completely redefining the whole drive system. The patented algorithm in the ESCs have been tuned and customized specifically for the Inspire 1 Pro and Inspire 1 RAW, offering features such as closed loop torque control and distinct functional redundancy with the highest efficiency and maximum reliability.

Retractable carbon fiber arms/landing gear

The carbon fiber propeller arms rest in a lowered position when the Inspire is on the ground, acting as landing gear. Once in the air, they can be retracted to give the camera a unobstructed 360-degree view.

Built-in GPS

A built-in GPS further enhances the Inspire 1 Pro's stability and provides features like dynamic home point, follow me, intelligent orientation control (IOC), point of interest (POI), and waypoints.

Dynamic home point:
When a GPS signal is available on the remote, the home point automatically refreshes. This becomes useful while traveling in a car or on a boat allowing the return-to-home point to move where the operator goes. Multiple configurations are available via the Dynamic Home Point function.

Follow me:
The follow me function will program the Inspire 1 Pro standard to follow you, and will enable you to record yourself without any support, and without you having to focus on controlling the drone.

Course lock:
By activating Course Lock, the controls will be set to be relative to your aircraft’s current path. This easy navigation allows you to fly in a set direction as you fly alongside moving objects or across scenes.

Point of interest:

Simply select a location or object for the Inspire 1 Pro to focus on, and the drone will continuously face it as you fly. You can even set the drone to automatically circle around the focused object or location.

The waypoints function allows you to plan a pre-set route for your drone to fly, once commenced the drone will autonomously fly the pre-set route, enabling you to focus on the camera.

MFT camera:

Micro Four Thirds camera with interchangeable lens system

The Inspire 1 Pro features the Zenmuse X5 Gimbal and camera system. This system features a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) sensor that is 8 times larger than the previous generation X3 used in the Phantom 2/3 and non-Pro Inspire 1 models. The larger sensor provides many advantages such as improved dynamic range, low light performance and improved colour accuracy.
The MFT camera comes with a fast wide-angle 15mm f/1.7 prime lens and can be changed to any lightweight MFT mount lens to provide new and creative shooting possibilities.

4K recording at 30 fps and Full HD recording at 60 fps

The new X5 camera can record Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K videos at up to 30 fps and Full HD videos at a smooth frame rate of 60 fps.

12.8 stops of dynamic range

The new X5 camera's larger sensor provides a wide dynamic range of 12.8 stops. This means that the camera can record more shades of colours and will capture more detail in bright highlights and dark shadows before blowing colours out.

Exceptional low light performance

Exceptional low light video recording is made possible by the super-fast F/1.7 included lens and sensor light sensitivity of ISO 100-25600. This makes the Inspire 1 Pro capable of capturing nightscapes with little to no noise

Easy Camera adjustments

All the camera settings, including ISO, shutter speed, focus and exposure compensation, can be set using both the DJI Go app or the physical controls on the remote controllers.

HD Live View with live streaming

Live View has also been bumped up and can now provide playback at HD with a range of up to 2km, this can be live streamed directly to YouTube.

16 MP camera with RAW image capture

The X5 camera features a picture resolution of 16 megapixels and an amazing ISO range of ISO 100 – 25600. The camera can also capture RAW images for even greater control during post production.

Compatible with the DJI Osmo

The X5 camera and gimbal system can be removed from the drone and be mounted on the DJI Osmo handheld system for great walk-around, indoor, and action shots.

Go App:

Live HD View

Watch a live HD video feed direct from the camera right on your mobile device's screen.

Flight simulator

The DJI Go app also features a flight simulator to practice your flying skills.

Director feature

The ‘Director’ feature automatically edits shots into short videos that can be shared immediately after landing.

Easy camera adjustments

All the camera settings, including ISO, shutter speed, focus and exposure compensation, can be set using the DJI Go app.
