The Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first filmmaking drone in the
world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360° rotating
gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The
launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the
Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe.
The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1
and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up
to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0
to 50mph (80kph) injust 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of
58mph (94kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of
speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system
prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S),
while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low
temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed
specifically for the Inspire 2, providing two directions of obstacle
avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds
multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving
even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An
upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal
frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV
camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and
camera operator collaboration.

The Inspire 2 creative workflow has been completely optimized
and is now capable of recording video in CinemaDNG and Apple
ProRes, and other common formats for post-production in
filmmaking. Also supported are FAT32/exFAT* file systems, which
allow fast copying of files direct from the CINESSD without
Sense and Avoid
Forward and downward vision systems enable the Inspire 2 to detect
obstacles up to 30 meters ahead, allowing for protected flight at up
to 34mph (54kph) at a controllable attitude angle of 25°. Upward
facing infrared sensors scan obstacles 16ft (5m) above, adding
protection when flying in enclosed spaces. Obstacle sensing systems
are active during normal flight, RTH and all Intelligent Flight Modes.
These sensors are core components of the DJI FIightAutonomy
system, which brings the below intelligent features to the Inspire 2:
Spotlight Pro is a powerful tracking mode that allows even single
pilots to capture complex, dramatic images. It uses advanced
visual tracking algorithms to lock onto a subject during flight,
regardless of the direction that the Inspire 2 flies, creating shots
that would once have required a dedicated camera operator. If
the gimbal comes close to reaching its rotation limits, the Inspire
2 itself will rotate in the same direction without affecting flight
control or the shot being captured to free up gimbal movement.
It has two shooting modes, Quick Mode and Composition Mode.
In Quick Mode, select an object to begin tracking.
In Composition Mode, select the subject and the tracking
position. When the subject enters the preset tracking position,
press the shortcut to begin tracking. The gimbal can be moved
during shooting for composition adjustments.
Spotlight Pro is 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 2-axis onboard FPV camera separates the flight view from the
main camera view, effectively giving the Inspire 2 a dedicated
TapFIy camera. Tap a point onscreen in the FPV view to set a flight
route and the Inspire 2 will automatically fly along that route,
leaving the pilot to focus on gimbal movement.
The ActiveTrack Mode allows the Inspire 2 to recognize a range of
objects, from people to bikes to cars to boats. Tracking profiles
that can be adjusted based on the subject being tracked means
greater tracking precision.
Smart Return to Home
Forward and downward vision systems allow the Inspire 2 to
create a real-time map of its flight route as it flies. If the video
transmission system signal is lost and Smart Return Home is
enabled, it is able to fly home along its original route, and change
to a straight line when it regains a signal. As it returns, it will use
the primary camera to identify obstacles as far as 200m in front,
allowing it to plan a safe route home. It is also able to reconnect
more quickly after losing connection.
Optimized Transmission and
The latest update to DJI Lightbridge technology has an effective
transmission distance of up to 4.3mi (7km)* and is capable of
delivering both 1080p/720p video as well as the FPV view to pilot
and camera operator. Users can also switch between 2.4GHz and
5.86Hz** control frequencies to cut through noise for greater signal
*Unobstructed, free of interference, FCC compliant.
**5.86Hz transmission is not available in some regions due to local
Master and Slave Controllers
A new wireless HD image transmission technology sends
video information from the master controller to the slave
controller and the two controllers can be up to 100m apart
without loss of image quality.
Broadcasters can broadcast direct from the Inspire 2 using its
dedicated 1080i50 and 720p60 transmission signal. Aerial live-
streaming direct to TV is as simple as connecting the Inspire 2
remote controller to the satellite truck.
A new propulsion system optimized for power creates a new level
of flight performance. The Inspire 2 flies at up to 58mph (94kph)
descends at 9m/s and climbs at 6m/s. It can accelerate from 0 to
50mph (80kph) injust 5 seconds and flies at a max attitude angle
The two controller sticks are tuned for more sensitivity, making
delicate maneuvers easier.
More power also allows the Inspire 2 to fly in more extreme
conditions, including over 2500-5000m above sea level (using
optional dedicated propellers), and in temperatures as low as -4°F
(-20°C) using self-heating Intelligent Flight Batteries.
Reliability has been further enhanced through dual redundancy of
key modules such as the IMU and barometer. The intelligent flight
control system monitors the redundancy system, giving it
accurate flight data.
The new obstacle sensing system helps the Inspire 2 sense and
avoid obstacles, minimizing the risk of collision.
Dual batteries mean that if a problem occurs on one battery the
other is able to continue flight long enough for a safe landing. At
the same time, the Inspire 2 propulsion system is driven a PWM
signal with serial port signal redundancy so that if PWM signals
are lost, transmission will continue through the serial port.
This propulsion system has been tested for thousands of hours to
ensure reliability, when combined with key sensors and a dual-
battery design, overall flight reliability is significantly enhanced.
