DJI Inspire 1Drone maker DJI introduces a new top-tier quadcopter with advanced camera capabilities and retracting landing gears.
Hey I'm Donal Bell here at the DJI launch event for the DJI Inspire One quadcopter. This is their new top of the line consumer quadcopter. The first time a 4K video camera that can capture at either 24 or 30 frames per second and the legs automatically get out of the way so that you can get full 360 degree rotation on the camera without the legs. Obstructing the view. they added light bridge to the controller system so you can get a real-time video output of what the drone is seeing on an external monitor. The camera system and the gimbal system are both removable here so you can upgrade these down the line if you want to, if additional or upgraded cameras come out. Or an upgraded gimbal system. There's also a thread mount. Where you can **** into your own filters to the cameras. On top of that there's a whole app that you can use to control the flight path of the Inspire that uses advanced Telemetrics to exactly nail down how you're gonna navigate this thing and be able to get really precise shots. You've got a swappable battery. Each battery gives you about 18 minutes of flight time. Due out later this month, the [UNKNOWN] is about $2,899. That gives you the quad-copter with one controller. You can also pay extra for a quad-copter that comes with two controllers. So that you can control both the quadcopter and the gimbal for the camera separately. So there you go. That's the DJI Inspire 1, a very cool, new quadcopter from DJI. Not inexpensive, but the one that you're gonna be lusting after for probably the next year.
