DJI's Inspire 1 is an amazing camera drone with a price to match

Gadgets
[MUSIC] Drone maker DJI has built itself quite a fleet of flying cameras over the past year. And at the top of its ready to fly line up is the Inspire 1. And it's **** awesome. Why is that? Well for starters it looks amazing, like a flying cow skull with carbon fiber legs that automatically lift up and out of the way when it takes off. That means they won't get in the way of the 4K resolution camera, with its gimbal that keeps the camera steady and rotates a full 360 degrees. And tilts 125 degrees while grabbing excellent video and photos. The camera's also removable, so there's upgrade potential down the road. And there's a mount that will let you use it handheld. Flying means fire one indoors. It's easier thanks to a set of sensors underneath. And when it's outside the improved GPS keeps it hovering wherever you leave it, and guides it back to you at the press of a button. The controller delivers a steady live HD video feed from the drone's camera from more than a mile away, to an external display or a mobile device. It also has physical camera controls and can be paired with a second controller so one person can pilot while another controls the camera. So all of that, awesome! What's not so awesome is battery life, maxing out at 18 minutes and extra batteries running about 160 dollars, or you can hand over 200 dollars for one that gets up to 22 minutes. And there's also the price of the quad-copter itself, which is $2900 with one controller, or 3400 hundred, with two. You can read the full review on cnet.com but basically the DJI Inspire 1 handles like a dream, but the cost put it into pro and deep pocketed enthusiast territory. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
