In November 2016 DJI presented its latest flagship. The DJI Inspire 2  (internal T650) is the latest generation with numerous features and improvements – as a significantly expanded anti-collision system, a biaxially stabilized FPV camera, a built-in image processor and several new flight modes. The price of Quadrocopter: at least 3500$ (without main camera).

 

DJI Inspire 1 with subtle design changes 

For the most part, the design of the DJI Inspire 2 is unchanged and is similar in large part to its predecessor.

Extremely high-quality materials and an extensive equipment  consisting of propellers, batteries, charger, remote control, accessories, desktop charger or transport case are of course also in the second generation Inspire. You only need a smartphone – or the new DJI CrystalSky monitor with installed DJI GO app – to fly the DJI Inspire 2.

 05-battery-2

The DJI Inspire 2 looks much like its predecessor. When examined in detail, you can spot smaller design changes and technical innovations. Worth mentioning are not only camera and new body, but also the dual battery bay.

A meticulous comparison to the previous generation reveals a new copper-colored housing made of  magnesium aluminum composite material. Besides high-quality case, the 42.7 centimeters long, 31.7 centimeters high and 42.5 centimeters wide DJI Inspire 2 like its predecessor, has a quality carbon boom and the typical lift mechanism, which is in some way reminiscent of a bat.

Particularly striking is the dual battery slot, which allows the use of two energy storage devices at the same time and a flight time of up to 27 minutes, which helps (especially when using with DJI X4S camera).

Aside of that, the use of a dual energy system is an enormous increase in safety: If one TB50 Battery – available for a whopping 200$  – drains out during the flight, the second battery provides enough energy for a safe landing in the Return To Home mode.

With the 180 watt charger and the supplied multi charging station, Inspire 2 needs approximately 90 minutes to load two batteries. If you charge four batteries with the intelligent multi charger, the charging process takes around 180 minutes.

Otherwise, the powerful 3512 engines and the new 1550T-propeller are worth mentioning, which are of course preassembled and included in the basic equipment. For flights on heights of more than 2,500 meters DJI offers special heights propeller, in particular to ensure a good flight performance in thinner air.

16-dual-frequency-1-1

DJI Remote Control has also been revised and now has an improved transmission or DJI Lightbridge system with dual band technology. This means that transmission ranges of up to seven kilometers are possible – both in terms of control and image signals. FPV-image and the camera image is transmitted, depending on the distance in 720p or up to 1080p resolution.

13-gimbal-control-2

As with the DJI Inspire 1, Inspired 2 uses a tablet or smartphone as a central control unit. Alternative to the mobile devices is a DJI Crystalsky monitor that can be used as control station with installed DJI GO App.

 

The other technical data and options are at a very high level. The transmission range of camera and control signals of the DJI Inspire 2 reaches about seven kilometers and is at the level of DJI Mavic Pro that uses DJI OcuSync system.

The Live View image is now transmitted in 1080p resolution. The speed is 30 meters per second – meaning 108km/h – extreme power. (although, the maximum speed of the DJI Inspire 2 is limited to 94 km / h).

With 84 ° the X4S camera offers a very natural field of vision. Also noteworthy is the improved 11.6 f-stops dynamic range of Sony Exmor R CMOS sensor and 14 DNG or JPEG images per second, which can be made with the X4S camera in Burst or Continuous mode.

The Adobe CinemaDNG- and Apple ProRes format is available only with the more expensive X5S variant.

New FPV camera on the front

03-fpv-camera-1-

The DJI Inspire 2 now has a second camera. This camera is suitable only for the FPV flight and not for the recording of high quality aerial photographs.

 

One widely known problem – namely the lack of FPV Camera for Inspire 1 – is now solved. The Quadrocopter now has a second front camera stabilized in two axles with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, which is mainly responsible for the transmission of the FPV-image.

Within the DJI GO app you can switch between the view of the FPV camera and the view of the aerial camera with just one click. The pitch axis of the FPV camera can be adjusted by pressing the C2-button and the left scroll wheel on the remote control. The roll axis is not adjustable.

Numerous safety sensors on board

The DJI Inspire 2 has numerous security sensors in combination as anti-collision systemact and not only ensure safe flight conditions, but also for appropriate evasive action. The DJI Inspire 2 has forward and downward facing ultrasonic sensors , the obstacles in up to 30 meters can detect at airspeeds of up to 54 kilometers per hour.

New are infrared sensors above the Quadrocopter that can detect obstacles in up to five meters, and thus in particular within buildings for appropriate security worry. The obstacle sensors are active during normal flight modes, the RTH-flight modes as well as in all intelligent flight modes. In addition, the DJI Inspire 2 now provides a redundant IMU unit and redundant Barometer.

Here the DJI Inspire 2 against the DJI Inspire 1 provides a significant safety advantage.

A new feature is also the Quick Spin 360 degree option. This can be triggered manually or operated in automatic mode.The camera under the Inspire 2 will eventually, if it gets too long turned in the same direction, more specifically, to their physical limits its lateral stop is reached. If the Quick Spin option is enabled, the DJI Inspire 2 recognizes the achievement of the end stop in time (approximately when reaching 270 ° angle of rotation) and “untwisted” the Gimbal again by the Inspire quickly by 360 ° in the same direction once around its own axis nachdreht. If this happens during a maneuver, the maneuver and the control direction is not affected by the rotation itself.

Conclusion and evaluation

Opposite the DJI Inspire 1 of DJI Inspire has 2 numerous features and technologies to offer, on which you should not do without. But the more favorable variant camera (X4S) is due 1 inch large image sensor a much better position.

The dual battery bay and the numerous anti-collision sensors, flight modes or redundant units (eg redundant IMU) make the DJI Inspire 2 to significantly safer aircraft.

But the new FPV camera or the optional DJI Crystalsky display should not miss the latest DJI flagship. Overall, the DJI Inspire 2 is not only safer, but also more comfortable and technologically advanced than its predecessor model.
