DJI Inspire 2
DJI Inspire 2 is a real work horse. There are lots of cameras and accessories, making Inspire 2 one of the most popular drones for professional film and photo work. Inspire 1 was a revolutionary droner when released at the end of 2014 and part of what made it so good is of course to be found on Inspire 2, such as the folding arm structure that ensures that no part of the drone is seen in the picture - even under the most extreme flight conditions.
The list of opportunities is long
DJI Inspire 2 has a newly developed image processor where data management moved into the chassi instead of directly in the camera as in its predecessor and its cameras. The video resolution is up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG or Apple ProRes. Catching fast action scenes is easy as the drone accelerates from 0-80 km/h in five seconds, reaching a top speed of 93 km/h and having a maximum climbing speed of 6 m/s.
Two batteries at each flight provide increased security in terms of redundancy and a 27-minute flight time with the Zenmuse X4S camera. All batteries have their own built-in heating, which makes it possible to fly even at lower temperatures (down to -20°C).
Built-in FPV camera
The Video transmission system is updated with dual signal frequencies and two separate channels, capable of providing both streaming video from the built-in FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously. This simplifies the cooperation between the pilot and camera operator and is a highly appreciated feature.
Next to the FPV camera there are two Vision Sensors, which together with other sensors pointing upwards and downwards constantly scan the surroundings, and avoid or stop for physical obstacles. The forward sensors have a range of up to 30 meters enabling flying up to 54 km/h with the sensors turned on.
Intelligent Flight Modes
Flying actively while concentrating on camera movements is not always easy, -especially not when it is done at almost 100 km/h. DJI provide tools to simplify this with a variety of intelligent flight modes.
Spotlight Pro is a powerful image algorithmic tracking mode that allows even uneexperienced pilots to handle complex and dramatic video sequences. Image analysis locks the intended object in image while in flight. In Quick Mode, you start immediately tracking the object, and in Composition Mode you track along a predefined route.
If the camera reaches its maximum rotation limit in any direction, Inspire 2 automatically rotates in the same direction to completely spin the camera without any restrictions. All this happens completely automatically without affecting flight and video results.
Click on the image and Inspire 2 flies there. You can also determine the speed in this mode, then concentrate on the camera's movements instead.
Select an object in the image by dragging a box around it. Inspire 2 then follows the object while trying to keep the same perspective all the time. You can control the drone at any angle at any time, and when you release, it keeps the perspective even in motion.
Smart Return To Home
During flight, video data is recorded in the background. This video is used to find the track back to start position if you lose the radio signal. With image analysis, Inspire 2 can understand where it has been, and can fly the same route back to avoid any obstacles in its way.
Improved Video and Communication Link
The range of control and video transmission is up to 4 km for the European version. You can control all features by yourself, or add an additional remote control or latest Cendence to share tasks in an easier way. The transmission can be alternated between 2.4 Ghz and 5.8 Ghz. The latter frequency gives a shorter reach, but could be a good option in urban areas or other places where there are many sources of disturbance on the conventional 2.4 Ghz band. Pilot and cameraman can stand up to 100m apart in Dual Remote Setup.
You can send video directly from Inspire 2 in the format 1080i50 or 720p60 to, for example, a transmitter bus. An additional handheld is then used as a receiver and connected via HDMI. If you add a Cendence handheld controller, you can use SDI link instead.
