There’s a ton of camera drones out there and even more coming out every month, but the DJI Mavic Pro and Inspire 1 are the only ones that I love using. I like the Mavic Pro because of how small and easy it is to use, and the fact that I always have it with me, but I like the Inspire 1 because of its amazing video quality. I don’t use the Inspire 1 every day because of its size, but when I do, it allows me to capture exactly what I want with the cinematic look that I want.
There is one problem with the Inspire 1 though. It’s over two years old. Yes, new cameras have come out like the X5 and X5R, but some features can’t be added simply by changing the camera or updating the software. That’s why I can’t wait for the Inspire 2, which should finally be announced on November 15, just a few days from now!
My Best Inspire 2 Predictions
The reason why I’m so excited for the Inspire 2 is that it’s going to be a no compromise drone, with features that no other DJI drone offers. When the Inspire 1 came out, it had features that were completely new to the drone industry, and there was nothing else that came close to competing with it. It was like the Mac Pro of drones. That’s why I’m expecting the same thing to happen with the Inspire 2.
Here are the features that I think we could see.
- An all new and improved obstacle avoidance system.
- Secondary flight camera, or intelligent waypoint flight mode with obstacle avoidance.
- Higher top speed (maybe 65MPH).
- Longer battery life.
- Dual gyros accelerometers and compasses.
- Possibly a new camera using Hasselblad’s technology and branding.
- OcuSync communication system with DJI Goggle compatibility
- New controller design.
- An entirely new mind blowing feature that nobody was expecting.
- Backward compatibility with all of the Inspire 1 cameras.
How We Know When The Inspire 2 Is Coming Out
Usually, leaked images like this don’t get out until the final design for the drone is finished and ready for production. These images typically come from internal test pilots. DJI is also hosting an event in California on November 15th for another “special announcement”. This means that the Inspire 2 can’t be far!
What The Leaked Images Tell Us
So far, there has been a few leaked pictures of the Inspire 2, and they are pretty revealing! Looking at the image, you can see that the general design hasn’t changed, but the materials and components are completely new. The body shell has a smooth space gray look to it, the arms look smoother and more refined, even the motors look completely different.
At the back of the drone, you can see a few things that really stand out. There appear to be new sensors. They could be for obstacle avoidance, but the placement is entirely different from the Mavic Pro or Phantom 4. This new array of sensors could mean 360-degree obstacle avoidance.
A few days after the first photo leaked, We Talk UAV released some other photos from an unknown source which show the new battery. This new battery looks massive (I’m guessing it’s a 26.1V when fully charged with a capacity of 8000mAh or more), and it probably slides out from the back of the drone to allow more room for the new sensors.
In the same photo, you can also see a charging hub and a massive power supply sitting under the battery. The larger power supply and charge hub will likely be an accessory included in one of DJI’s Inspire 2 bundles.
