Expert Opinion PHIL [PILOT]
DJI have really raised the bar with the Inspire 2. It addresses many of the issues pilots had with the original craft - such as the lack of gimbal-independant camera - and adds a whole host of new features and redundancies. The new craft is designed to optimise production at every step. If you are looking to fly commercially, this is the system for you.
Powerful Imaging Platform
The Inspire 2 is a marked improvement on its predecessor. It offers superior performance with a 0-50mph time of just 5 seconds, maximum speed of 58mph and can now descend at 9m/s. The imaging system has been totally overhauled allowing for recordings at up to 5.2k in both CinemaDNG, Apple ProRes, RAW and more. A host of redundant navigation electronics are paired with a (self heating) dual battery setup to minimise downtime in even the most hostile environments. Revised advanced autopilot modes now make it even easier for a single operator to produce incredible shots.Please Note : This listing is for the the bare quacopter. Neither a gimbal or camera is included at this price.
Brand new structure : Retaining the transforming design, the Inspire 2 is now constructed with a Magnesium composite shell and carbon fibre arms.
Advanced Configuration : With front vision sensing, terrain detection and upward obstacle avoidance. A two-axis FPV cam and a range of supported zenmuse cameras.
Powerful and Agile : 2kg thrust per rotor with 15inch props allows the craft to reach 58mph. A max flight time of 27 minutes from its two 98Wh batteries.
High Quality : 5.2k at 4.2Gbps RAW video can be recorded with the CineCore 2.0 processor when using the new DJI CineSSD.
Video Format : Supports CinemaDNG, Apple ProRes, H.265 and H.264 codecs. Capable of 4k video at 100Mbps.
Efficient Workflow : Fat32/exFat file support allows fast copying of files directly from the CINESSD without additional software.
Lightbridge Technology : Utilising both 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz spectrums and Lightbridges' frequency switching to ensure the best signal .
Incredible Range : A controllable range of 4.3miles (7km) in FCC mode.
Master/Slave Control : Multiple slave controllers are now supported.
Broadcast Mode : Providing a 1080i50 and 720p60 transmission feed, right from the HDMI port.

Sense and Avoid
The Inspire 2 can detect objects up to 30m infront thanks to its forward and downward sensors. This enables it to fly at 34mph whilst automatically avoiding such obstacles. These (alongside its historical position data) allow the drone to intelligently return to home, should a loss in connection occur.
The brand new spotlight pro intelligent flight mode uses advanced algorithms to visually track objects, allowing the pilot to concentrate on framing the shot instead. The craft will even auto rotate if it comes within the rotation limits of the gimbal.
Alongside this, the Inspire 2 also supports the new TapFly and Activetrack flight modes found in the consumer range of drones.
