Features:

  • Strong carbon fiber arms lift out of sight, transforming the way you shoot. Get a full, unrestricted 360⁰ view of the world below and create images like never before. The body’s aerodynamic design cuts through the sky and further enhances your control over the aircraft. This ensures long flight times and a long operational life.
  • Video: 4K @ 24-30 fps, or 1080p @ 24-60fps,
    • Photos: 12 Megapixels
    • Lens: 9 elements in 9 groups including an aspherical element
    • 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor
    • 94⁰ wide-angle FOV
    • 3-axis, 360⁰ rotating gimbal
  • Shoot up to 4K video and capture 12 megapixel photos with the Inspire 1 camera. The lens consists of 9 elements in 9 groups including an aspherical element producing extreme clarity, while Adobe DNG RAW support gives you the power to make every shot a masterpiece.
  • Inspire 1’s gimbal and camera system can be removed from the aircraft for safe transport and future upgrades.
  • Take complete control of your camera and flight system with a comprehensive mobile app. Everything
    from manual camera controls to flight telemetry and even auto takeoff and landing are just a tap away,
    with more functions and updates coming soon.
  • Fly with a friend and share your vision. Achieve shots that never would have been possible alone by using
    two remote controllers. One person flies, while the other controls the camera. Each user can have their own screen to see exactly what is being shot in real-time. By working in tandem, you’re capturing shots that are more complex and artistic than ever before.
  • A real-time feed from your Inspire 1’s camera is displayed in 720p HD on your mobile device giving you a perfect view of what the camera sees to frame your shots.
  • Flying indoors is easier than ever with Optical Flow technology that provides accurate position
    holding even when GPS is unavailable. The sensors determine your Inspire 1’s location and altitude
    and lower the legs automatically when landing.
  • A fully integrated intelligent battery powers your Inspire 1 and virtually manages itself.

Additional features:

  • Manual Mode
    • Change all of your camera settings, including ISO, White Balance, Exposure, and more on the fly ensuring every shot looks exactly the way you want.
  • Live Map and Radar
    • See precisely where your Inspire 1 is at all times on the live map. The map can be enlarged when needed and shows your most recent flight path.
  • Dynamic Home Point
    • When GPS signal is available on the remote, the Home Point automatically refreshes. This becomes useful while traveling in a car or on a boat allowing the return-to-home point to move where the operator goes. Multiple configurations are available via the Dynamic Home Point function.
  • Auto Take-Off and Landing
    • Takeoff and landing is easier than ever before, with both functions just a tap away. Tap once to takeoff and your Inspire 1 will hover and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to make it transform into landing mode and auto land.
  • Flight Telemetry
    • All of the information you need to fly safely is just a glance away. Altitude, flight speed, distance, and more are right at your fingertips.
  • Remote Control Customization
    • Put yourself in charge by tailoring the Inspire 1’s controls to your personal needs. This way, your Inspire 1 moves and responds in ways you’re most comfortable with.

  1. I would like to know about the camera. 20 mm it’s a wide angle lense? The images are sample? Or sample image is deformed like wide lenses?

    • Hi Ionut,

      Thanks for your question. The Inspire 1 features a camera which features sony’s 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, and a 94 degree wide angle lens. The field of view (fov) works out to be 20mm talking in 35mm terms. It is supposed to give a wide but non-fisheye view.

      Hope that helps.
