DJI Inspire 2

DJI is the best and most known drone maker all over the world, and their most popular birds are the Phantom and Mavic series. (DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom click here, Phantom 4 Pro review click here). Despite of their amazing capturing capabilities and features, they are not DJI’s flagship products. The Inspire 2 is the most advanced drone on the consumer market, Let’s Check it out!

Design

It’s aggressive! I really like the design, it seems so premium and a high tech gadget. The two sides which holds the propellers fold up during flying, to provide a 360 degrees of view to the camera. On the front you can see the fpv camera (talk about it later). The drone comes in grey with black arms, and it’s pretty big and heavy, 3440 g, including propellers and two batteries, without gimbal and camera. Take off weight is 4250g.

Camera

First of all talk about the fpv camera, which has a 2 axis gimbal. For the best experience, 2 operator is needed with two remote controller, one of them is for the aircraft and the other controls the secondary camera. Both of them can see the others picture as well. There is a lot of option for the secondary camera, all has great specs. Let’s see the cameras!

Conclusion

Well, the Inspire 2 is the most advanced drone now, with amazing performance and the capability of making an action movie with car chases and much more. For professionals this could be the best choice, however if it’s too big for you and hard to carry, you should think about the Mavic 2Pro. The differences is speed, camera quality, but nothing more. The smart modes are the same and the Mavic2 Pro has side obstacle avoidance unlike the Inspire. Moreover the price tag of this machine is huge, it’s between 5000 and 23000 dollars, depends on the package and camera you choose.
