The DJI Inspire 2 features the most advanced FlightAutonomy obstacle avoidance system in any DJI Drone with 6 directions including top obstacle avoidance. This obstacle avoidance system is made up from a complex network of components including infrared sensors, the primary camera, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), and computing cores.
The new infrared sensing systems sensors with a field of view of 60 and 54, and a maximum range of 7m, provides a wide view of the scene around the Inspire 2. These infrared systems replaced the traditional ultrasonic sensors because they only have a detection range of 3-5m and may be confused when affected by propeller vibration or when sensing uneven surfaces.
Together all these components renders an accurate 3D environment (up to 30m) around the Inspire 2 and monitors critical data and rule out possible errors so it can react to its surroundings. This obstacle avoidance system works both in outdoor and indoor environments and is activated in every Intelligent Flight Mode including all ActiveTrack modes, TapFly and Terrain Follow. Additionally, these technologies also make the Inspire 2 hover with incredible stability. FlightAutonomy is also available during automatic Return to Home, and the drone will follow its flown path back while dogging obstacles to return safely in case of a lost connection or low battery.
The DJI Inspire 2 features the same ActiveTrack follow modes found in its Phantom 4 drones. Active track successfully makes autonomous/automatic follow recording a reality. Whether you or your subject are running, cycling, skating, skiing, driving, the system uses an advanced combination of computer vision, object recognition, gesture support, and machine learning to track as your subject moves. Circling a moving object and keeping it in frame used to only be achievable by the most confident of pilots, now thanks to completely autonomous following and blistering flight speeds everyone can do it. A new algorithm also recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots. New ActiveTrack flight modes opens new creative tracking including Trace, a follow mode behind or in front of a subject; Profile, for tracking alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject; and Spotlight, a mode that keeps the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere. The entire time ActiveTrack is running obstacle avoidance is too, so it will decide whether it should continue following, avoid an obstacle or simply stop.
Integrated into the Inspire 2 is a new CineCore 2.0 image processing system, capable of processing 5.2K videos, and is capable of storing files in DJI's CINESSD storage system. By placing these parts inside the airframe, image data can be stored and processed more readily, while the CINESSD storage system itself can be better protected. It also means that the camera can be more lightweight, increasing aircraft agility and overall flight performance. CineCore 2.0 is compatible with the Zenmuse X4S and X5S for different shooting needs, and both cameras attach using a new gimbal port that is quicker to connect and more reliable.
The Inspire 2 comes with new 15-inch propellers and motors that delivers 2kg of thrust, capable of propelling the Inspire 2 at a sports car equivalent 0-80kph time of just 4 seconds. As every increment in speed creates new challenges, many technological hurdles were overcome to realize the Inspire 2s 94kph top speed. This required the creation of a finely tuned propulsion system, redesigned motors with a 3 camber angle for more stable pitch, roll, and yaw as well as an advanced flight control system, air resistance reduction, and stability enhancement. Additionally, its advanced fast-acting flight control system allows the Inspire 2 to descend at a rapid 9m/s.
With more flight power and larger cameras, the Inspire 2 needs a rigid structure that still maintains a low weight. DJI overcame this problem by using a lightweight magnalium shell, and carbon fiber T junction airframe connections.
The front of the Inspire 2 features a 2-axis gimbal stabilised global shutter FPV camera. This is not the primary/main recording camera but displays the front of the drone so users can control the drone better when the main camera is not facing frontwards. The camera has a controllable pitch range of 0 to -60, and its video feed transmits along with the feed from the primary camera to the DJI GO app, so both operator and camera operator can get the view they need to capture complex shots. DJI GO can be used to switch between different views, while both master and slave controller feeds to maintain the same video quality, giving both pilot and camera operator a better overall experience.
The propeller arms of the Inspire 2 act as a landing gear when landing/taking off and moves up when in flight; greatly reducing the chances of the camera recording the propellers and ruining your video or image.
You don't have to manually fly the Inspire 2 with the control sticks, TapFly takes over all of these controls for you leaving you to focus on your shot. Using TapFly mode, all you have to do is tap on the screen of your smartphone or tablet and the drone will fly there. To change the direction of flight, you can simply tap the screen to fly anywhere. Using its Flight Autonomy Obstacle Sensing System, the DJI Inspire 2 can fly places you might not have gone before, to create dynamic and inspiring footage.
The DJI Inspire 2 features the same failsafe auto-return home feature found in previous models but now also integrates FlightAutonomy with landing terrain detection. The system is completely autonomous and will automatically return to the exact spot it took-off if it detects that the battery is running low, connection to the controller is lost or if the return home button is pressed. The drone will follow the exact flown path back with the FlightAutonomy obstacle sensing system to safely guide the drone past moving/moved obstacles and will scan the landing area to see if it is safe.
The DJI Inspire 2 features a dual band remote controller featuring a whopping 7km range. The dual band frequencies cover 2.400-2.483 GHz, and 5.725-5.850 GHz; the frequencies can manually be switched to provide a better connection based on your surroundings.
The DJI Inspire 2 is powered by two 6000mAh batteries to give the drone a flight time of up to 27 minutes with the X4S gimbal camera attached. The dual battery system does not just provide a longer flight time; but also a failsafe return to home if one battery should fail, as well as a 70W self-heating system.
Each battery in the Inspire 2 features a 70W self-heating system capable of heating itself to 5C every minute to enable safe flight in extremely cold conditions. Additionally, the heating system increases the maximum flight height to 5000m above sea level when using the optional high altitude propellers.
The DJI Go 4 app also features a flight simulator to practice your flying skills.
The ‘Director’ feature automatically edits shots into short videos that can be shared immediately after landing.
All the camera settings, including ISO, shutter speed, focus, and exposure compensation, can be set using the DJI Go 4 app.
Attitude algorithms of the Inspire 2 have been comprehensively improved, increasing the sensitivity of the control sticks, so that pilots can fly with greater precision. Flight parameters can now also be adjusted in the DJI GO 4 app, giving pilots the ability to tune the Inspire 2 to fly the way they need it to. Tripod Mode also comes to the Inspire 2, for ultra-fine flying or slow graceful movements.
Three damping balls and a damping board weighing just 40g half the weight of previous damping boards increase the damping capabilities of the Inspire 2 gimbal. Gimbal movement can now be customized through parameter settings built into DJI GO, giving operators the control they need to get the desired shot. A new gimbal control system increases control precision up to 0.01, and is also powerful enough to carry an equivalent 90mm long lens. The new attitude controlled design allows the gimbal to automatically keep level, significantly reducing the likelihood of tilted horizons. The gimbal also has a new Follow Mode, which links the direction of the gimbal to the master controller, giving it the same control experience as the slave controller.
The Inspire 2 features a new Broadcast Mode for TV broadcasters, allowing videos to be streamed from the Inspire 2 in broadcast standard 720p60 or 1080i50. Once connected to broadcasting equipment, footage can be sent live on-air without signal conversion. Additionally, while pilots maintain a real-time view of the flight, a short delay has been added to the optimized HDMI output, offering smoother playback and more stable frame rates.
When mounted to the Inspire 2 drone, the DJI Zenmuse X5S camera can record lossless Cinema RAW videos at a massive maximum bitrates in either 5.2K, 4.2Gbps, 12-bit video at up to 29.97p; or Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K, 3.6Gbps, 12bit video at up to 47.95p. The massive bitrates keeps original data intact, giving you complete control to edit every single frame in post as a RAW file.
The DJI Zenmuse X5S can also capture videos at fast frame rates of 120fps in Full HD. The faster frame rates will enable you to slow down recordings by up to 5 times without producing choppy/jumpy videos.
The new X5S 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 video recording is made possible by the super-fast F/1.7 included lens and sensor light sensitivity of ISO 100-25600. This enables capturing low light scenes such as nightscapes with little to no noise
The X5S camera features a picture resolution of 20.8 megapixels and an amazing image ISO range of ISO 100 25600. The camera can also capture 12-bit RAW images for even greater image control during post production.
A new 3-axis gimbal stabilises the camera of the Zenmuse X5S. The new gimbal has been highly optimised to support the new camera and lens and has a pinpoint-precise motor rotation with a control accuracy of 0.01 that is powered by a dedicated processor.
When used with a DJI CINESSD, the X5S can capture 20.8 megapixel DNG RAW stills at a fast continuous rate of 20 frames per second. When using only an microSD card, 20.8MP JPEG+DNG stills can be captured at 14fps. Stills can also be taken during video recording without stopping recording.
Micro four thirds is a largely popular lens mount/type making several lens options available for the X5S. At time of writing there is officially only 8 lenses supported by the camera and gimbal, but DJI, along with third party lens companies are planning to make more supported lenses available. Additionally, the lens mount on the X5S is an Active MFT that supports autofocus. The official supported lenses (at time of writing) can be found below.
