INSPIRE 2 - AIRFRAME ONLY
The Inspire 1 revolutionized filmmaking with its HD video transmission system, 360° gimbal, and 4K cameras, in addition to its simplified app controls. The release of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras solidified the Inspire as a go-to tool for professional photographers and videographers around the world.
With the new Inspire 2, DJI has taken all that was ground-breaking with the Inspire 1 and further improved it. The Inspire 2 features a brand new imaging processing system that records up to 5.2K video in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes, and more. The Inspire 2 can additionally fly from 0 to 80 kilometres in four seconds with a maximum flight speed of 108kph. The Inspire 2 has a maximum descent speed of 9m/s for a never before seen speed for an aircraft of its size.
The dual battery feature extends flight time to a maximum flight time of 27 minutes with the Zenmuse X4S camera, and with self-heating technology, the drone can fly even in lower temperatures. The drone’s flight autonomy has also been improved specifically for the Inspire 2, with two extra directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. This increased intelligence adds other multiple flight modes, such as Spotlight Pro, which gives pilots the ability to create more complex and dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is also capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel streaming for an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for improved pilot and camera user teamwork.

SENSE AND AVOID
The forward and downward vision system gives the Inspire 2 the ability to detect obstacles that are up to 30 meters ahead of it, giving the user a protected flight of up to 54kph at a controllable attitude angle of 25°. The upward facing infrared sensors can scan obstacles 5m above it for extra protection when flying indoors. The Obstacle sensing system is active during normal flights, in Return to Home mode, and in all Intelligent Flight Modes. These sensors are all core components of the DJI Flight Autonomy System which bring the features to the Inspire 2 below:
PROFESSIONAL IMAGE QUALITY
The Inspire 2 is integrated with new a new CineCore 2.0 image processing system which is capable of recording 5.2L videos in CinemaDNG*, Apple ProRes* and more. CineCore 2.0 is also built in the nose of the drone and works with any camera that is connected through the gimbal port.
The Inspire 2 is currently compatible with the X4S and the X5S.
- 2K 30fps 4K 60fps
- Apploe ProRes
- Oversampling Video
- 20 fps continuous burst
- NVMe SSD PCIe 3.0
- FAT 32/exFAT
The Inspire 2’s creative workflow is now capable of recording video in CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes, and any other additional formats for post-production in filmmaking. The Inspire 2 also supports FAT32/exFAT* file systems, which allows for the quick copying of files directly from the CINESSD without having to add any additional software.
The Spotlight Pro is an extremely powerful tracking mode that gives pilots the ability to capture complex and dramatic footage. Spotlight Pro uses an advanced visual tracking algorithm to lock onto a subject during flights, regardless of the direction that the Inspire 2 is flying in. This creates shots that would have once required a single dedicated camera operator to control. If the gimbal is close to reaching its limit of rotation, the Inspire 2 will rotate in the same direction of the camera without affecting the flight control or the shot being captured to permit gimbal movement.
There are also two shooting modes, Quick Mode and Composition Mode. In Quick Mode, users can select an object on their screen to begin tracking. In the new Composition Mode, users can select the subject as well as the tracking position. Once the main subject enters, the user can enter the preset tracking position, then press the shortcut to begin tracking. The gimbal can even be moved during shooting for composition adjustments. Spotlight Pro is also available in all Intelligent Flight Modes including ActiveTrack, TapFly, Waypoint, and Point of Interest.
INTELLIGENT FLIGHT MODES
In addition to Spotlight Pro, a range of other intelligent flight and shooting modes are available. Obstacle avoidance is optimized when using Point of Interest*and Waypoint* modes, making complex shots simple and repeatable. Also available are QuickSpin, TapFly and ActiveTrack, to simplify challenging shots.
The Inspire 2’s 2-axis onboard FPV camera separates the flight view from the main camera's view, essentially giving the Inspire 2 a dedicated TapFly camera. Users can tap a point onscreen in the FPV view to set a flight route, then, the Inspire 2 will automatically fly along that route, leaving the pilot to focus on the gimbal movement.
The ActiveTrack Mode will allow the Inspire 2 to recognize a range of objects including bikes, cars, and people. Tracking the profile of the object can also be adjusted based on the subject being tracking which equates to greater tracking precision.
SMART RETURN TO HOME
Forward and downward vision systems will allow the Inspire 2 to remember its flight route as it flies. If the video transmission system signal is dropped, and Smart Return Home is activated, the drone will still be able to fly along the memorized, original route, and then change into a straight line when it regains the signal. As it returns, pilots will use the primary camera to identify any nearby obstacles as far as 200m in front, allowing it to plan out a safe route home. The drone can also reconnect faster after losing a signal.
VIDEO TRANSMISSION SYSTEM
The newest update to the DJI Lightbridge technology now has a transmission distance of up to 7km and can deliver 1080/720p video as well as the FPV view for piloting and the camera operator. Users can additionally switch between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequencies for less interference and a stronger signal.
MASTER AND SLAVE CONTROLLERS
The new wireless HD image transmission technology sends the drones video information from the master controller to the slave controller. The controllers can be up to 100 metres apart from each other without losing an image quality.
Aerial live-streaming direct to the TV is now as simple as connecting the Inspire 2’s remote controller to a satellite truck. Broadcasters can broadcast the feed from the Inspire 2 using its dedicated 1080i50 and 720p60 transmission signal.
POWERFUL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
The Inspire 2’s new propulsion system is optimized for an all new level of flight performance. The Inspire 2 can reach speeds of up to 108kph, descends at 9m/s and climbs a 6m/s. It can also accelerate from 0 to 80 kph in only four seconds and can fly at a maximum angle of 40°. The two controller sticks can even be turned for more sensitivity so delicate shots are easier to maneuver.
More power can allow the Inspire 2 to fly in more extreme conditions, including over 2500 – 5000m above sea level and in temperatures that are as low as -20 degrees using the self-heating Intelligent Flight Batteries.
The reliability of the drone has been enhanced further through the dual redundancy of key modules such as the IMU and the barometer. The intelligent flight control system monitors the redundancy of the system which gives it accurate flight data.
The new and improved obstacle sensing system also helps the Inspire 2 sense and avoid obstacles which minimizes any risk of collision.
The dual battery system means that if any problem is detected on one battery the other will be able to continuously power and fly the drone for a safe landing. The Inspire 2 propulsion system is also driven with a PWM signal with serial port signal redundancy, so in the case that the PWM signal is lost, the transmission will still continue to the serial port.
The propulsion system has been extensively tested for thousands of hours to ensure extra reliability when combined with the key sensors and dual-battery design, meaning that overall flight reliability is significantly enhanced.
4G-LTE NETWORK CONNECTION
The new Inspire 2 will support control over 4G and USB dongle and SDK development is required. The high bandwidth allows the Inspire 2 to transmit high-quality videos to a network server or it can also be used for ultra-long distance control. The Inspire 2 also cuts video transmission latency to 500ms.
With the new handheld camera mount, the Inspire 2 is compatible with the Zenmuse X4S and X5S, which brings the cameras down to the ground for even more flexible filmmaking.
REMOTE CONTROLLER** GPS ACCESSORY
With the GPS accessory for the remote controller, accuracy and position for the remote is greatly improved. With the Inspire 2’s Dynamic Home point function will allow for an accurate Return to Home when the drone is in an environment of moving around.
