Official Inspire 2 ***Owner's Thread***


Power Beyond Imagination


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) in just 4 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 67mph (108kph) 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.



Professional Image Quality


Integrated into the Inspire 2 is the brand new CineCore 2.0 image processing system, capable of recording 5.2K videos in CinemaDNG1, Apple ProRes2 and more. CineCore 2.0 is built into the aircraft nose and works with any camera connected through the dedicated gimbal port.
(Currently compatible with X4S3 and X5S).

Video recording capability:

Efficient Workflow

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 additional software.
* Coming soon.


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 16.4ft (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 FlightAutonomy system, which brings the below intelligent features to the Inspire 2:

Accurate indoor hovering and positioning
Obstacle avoidance
Automatic obstacle avoidance during RTH
Landing terrain detection
Upward Infrared Sensors


Spotlight Pro

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.
*Coming soon.

TapFly

The 2-axis onboard FPV camera separates the flight view from the main camera view, effectively giving the Inspire 2 a dedicated TapFly 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.

ActiveTrack

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 Control System

Video Transmission System

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 5.8GHz** control frequencies to cut through noise for greater signal stability.
*Unobstructed, free of interference, FCC compliant.
**5.8GHz transmission is not available in some regions due to local regulations.


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.

Broadcast mode

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.


Powerful Flight Performance

A new propulsion system optimized for power creates a new level of flight performance. The Inspire 2 flies at up to 67mph (108kph) descends at 9m/s and climbs at 6m/s. It can accelerate from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just four seconds and flies at a max attitude angle of 40°.

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.


Increased Reliability

Reliability has been further enhanced through dual redundancy of key modules such as the IMU, compass 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.


Optional Accessories to Enhance Performance

A series of powerful DJI accessories help improve work efficiency and give filmmakers more creative opportunities.

DJI CINESSD Station

I will be adding some additional technical points to this post as they come up

Battery Heater
The battery will heat itself automatically  if the cell temperature is lower than 15 degree celsius after powering on the inspire2. It will keep the temperature between 15-20c by adjusting the heating power. if the battery temperature is higher than 20c the heating element will stop heating.

You can also warm up the battery manually by pressing the battery button for 3 second . There is no need to insert the battery into inspire2 before flight in cold environments.

The heating element draws 70W power for each battery at a 5C/minute warming rate. If heating from -20C, you will need 7 minutes to reach 15C with a consumption of about 8.2Wh (about 9% capacity).
The flying performance will be similar to fly in warm weather.
