DJI Inspire 1 – Behind the Gimbal – HeliPal.com
DJI’s most advanced technology comes together in an easy to use, all-in-one flying platform
Presenting the Super Drone – DJI Inspire 1
The Inspire 1 has all the best technology that DJI treasures, such as the first Transforming Design in the industry, the pixel-grade precision 3-Axis Gimbal, the new removable 4K Camera with No Fish-eye distortion and new upgraded Lightbridge system for HD Video Feeds and Data link, all these high-end technology packed together making the DJI Inspire 1 the most advanced drone ever.
The first thing to capture our eyes is the Transforming Design, I mean… what is this?? Something from the future? We love it so much!!! Press a button the drone will take off automatically, flip a switch and the carbon fiber arms will maneuver in the air and transform, moving out of the camera’s way to have a full 360° unobstructed view. Anyway, we love to see them work and keep showing off to everyone…. “See?? I have a Autobot (or Decepticon??)!”
Everything you need for aerial filmmaking, integrated into an elegant, ready-to-fly system – “Anyone can fly”, the flight control system built into the Inspire 1 makes flying as easy and intuitive as possible. All components intelligently communicate with each other, giving you smooth, stable flight starting from the first time you takeoff. The CPU power is off-the-scale, the “brain” and 6-axis gyroscope calculates environmental conditions in real-time, and ensures that the aircraft responds to your control commands instantly.
Power is nothing without control, so DJI put a lot of effort in making a safe flying platform, using a high-strength, intelligent GLONASS + GPS system enables higher precision and quicker satellite acquisition, allowing you to see where the aircraft is on a live map and giving it a point to hover at when you release the controls. In additional to traditional GPS, GLONASS offers an even greater level of precision by providing even more satellites. The Inspire 1 even remembers its takeoff point and dynamically tracks your current position, so you can bring your Inspire 1 back to you at the press of a button. How about hovering in place without GPS? Yes, the Inspire 1 can do that with the new Vision Positioning System (VPS), it’s basically a camera pointing at the ground and some sonar sensors which combine visual data and sonar waves in a single unit, detecting both variance in patterns on the ground and current altitude. With this information, your Inspire 1 can hover in place and automatically raise or lower its arms as you liftoff or descend to the ground. With the help of GPS and VPS working together, making the Inspire 1 “Incredibly Stable” in both Indoor and Outdoor environment.
Having a stable platform is not enough, especially a all-in-one filming drone, another big feature of the Inspire 1 is the outstanding 4K Camera system, a brand new 9-layer lens helps you capture the best aerial views possible, the rectilinear, curved lens design eliminates distortion, and the 20mm focal length opens up your shots to a remarkably wide angle without that fish-eye look, shooting video at up to 4Kp30 or 1080p60 and takes crisp, clear 12 megapixel stills, how’s that for such a small, lightweight camera! And of course, the all new Zenmuse X3 gimbal keeping the camera steady in the sky and ensuring you get stable, professional-quality footage every time, I’m talking about “Pixel-Grade” stability, like having a dolly grip in the sky, No Jello Effect or Vibration at all, zero, none! Being a professional gimbal system, you get to control the camera, best of all, using the DJI Pilot app you can rotate and tilt the camera by tapping the tablet screen and dragging your finger wherever you want to look, it’s cool, isn’t it?
How about real-time Video Feeds? Yes, you have it, you will see HD Video Feeds on the Tablet (iOS or Android) up to 2km range, thanks to the new upgraded DJI Lightbridge system. For the first time ever, the DJI Lightbridge HD video downlink has been integrated into a remote. This gives you a live view of what your camera sees when connected to a screen or mobile device and increases your maximum control range up to 2km.
The Inspire 1 is a well made, cutting-edge Aerial Filming Drone, it can handle the most demanding Professional Filming task, or take it out for fun flying. Built with safety in mind for everyone to enjoy flying. Very easy to use with one person or share the fun with the second person to control the camera (Cameraman controls the gimbal and camera thru Second Controller). We love the Inspire 1, it’s a great “Business” equipment and a “Fun Flying Drone”, two-in-one, what a bargain! =)
