Thank you, and improvement won't be a bad idea if battery mah capacity would have increased with the same size and price.

Because the Inspire 1 isn't that great of a platform unless you are doing thermals.

Camera wise the x5r micro 4/3 quality pretty much is timeless and interchangeable.
Go look at x5r and x7 comparison on youtube.

Aircraft wise sure it doesn't have obstacle avoidance, but that feature is in the real world actually obsolete and irrelevant because- dji's obstacle avoidance tech can make your drone malfunction and crash in little, complex or tight obstacles or low light conditions. Simply It is basically useless in and in the long run can wreck your drone too. You're better off adapting your flying without using those.


The flight time is definitely on the shorter side at 15+min with the x5r but it still is sufficient. But sure with the inspire 2 20+mins is what you could say is enough.

However both inspire 2 and inspire 1 aircraft wise- will be dinosaurs on the next generation of dji drones with the more powerful processors and algorithims that will take flight autonomy to true drone autonomy. Such as for obstacle avoidance.
We'll see it end of 2020 or early 2021.

I understand but the size comparison, I don't feel as comfortable flying over sensitive objects as I do w/ the M2.  Even w/ the P4Pv2.0 it can feel quite dangerous but it gets it done.

The Inspire 1 is so big and so loud that it's on another level.  It stopped traffic with its presence.  Look at traffic slow down.  I was messing w/ the feed MBps or something to see if it mattered which is why it was stationary.  I didn't know it was happening until I examined the footage that people were slowing down for no reason.


Autonomy would be crazy.  If Skydio and DJI merge it would be an insane combo.  Skydio's website doesn't even have their user accounts setup.  DJI can still buy them out I think.  What do you mean by timeless and interchangeable?

For sure people will notice the inspire series much more because of the size and sound. They'll think it's a professional rig capable of spying with massive zoom... or military grade stuff.. it does not like like a toy but for serious stuff. While the small mavics definitely lowkey and stealthy.

You could use ANY 4/3 lens with with the inspire 1 x5/r or inspire 2 x5s.
Such as power zoom panasonic's 45-175mm lens which is only about 80 grams heavier than your stock lens.
Or any new release 4/3 lens you could need or want as long as they're lightweight.

The quality of dynamic range for the x5r and x7 are very similar in the youtube video comparison.

You'll always be getting the very best performance out of 4/3 in low light conditions for both inspire 1 and 2.
4/3 is still the best for low light aerial photography and it'll take time before it gets outdated which makes the saying timeless.

You can put a 175mm lens on the Inspire 1 and zoom on demand like the M2Z??

I've sold the setup with the thermals.  I'm like, if I need to zoom I can just get closer w/ the M2Z and zoom in.  The Inspire 1 range is pretty bad.

Inspire 2 only?  It seems too heavy.

Yup the i1 range is bad because of the latest firmware 1.11, the guy who's in charge of making fw 1.11 thought it would be a good idea to downgrade the radio and receiver of the inspire 1 for their own imagined reasons, maybe i1 sales were still better than i2- but that's because of they are in two different price categories making one affordable and the other not affordable. Or because of that one case of inspire 1 used as bomb in the middle east because their products did come there such as phantom 3 in the same era. Or simply regulations on transmission But they didn't do the same downgrade on other dji drone firmwares.

The original inspire 1 firmwares allowed full power and the potential to the radio goes all the way to 7.6miles bone stock- old range record vids confirm that. That's how good lightbridge actually is on its potential 7.6 miles bone stock. If you downgrade to 1.8 it's a lot better. But the first few firmware was indeed the best but the radio fw was deleted.

Yes a lightweight lens panasonic power zoom 45-175mm works on both inspire 1 and 2 with x5/r or x5s. Has to be power zoom lens though so you can zoom in real time when flying. And it has to be lightweight like the lumix panasonics.

Long zoom is a good feature for photography but not for videography.
Basically anything above 50mm will start to increase in jello.

That's because mavic only zooms a little.
If you want something for zoom and thermal, matrice 210 can have both z30 and thermal cam at the same time.
But if you're not a professional user then there's no point of having it just like your inspire 1 thermal

Mavic 2 Zoom does 96mm on digital and 48mm on optical, no jello.  I had a job where I had to be up 3 stories with like 26mph winds by the Beach flying like 5 feet away to see where the damage leak was.  The M2Z performed beautifully.

I heard the Z30 and XT2 cannot be used together.  You have to use an XT and Z30 for both to work but I'm not sure.  If I have lots of money I'd probably do it but there really is no need for them.  That stuff are for the professionals who do top-level inspections all the time.  I wonder if those refineries that blew up were the cause of drones malfunctioning or they blew up from the lack of drone scanning intervals to catch things before they became too late or both.

Have you seen the new Autel Evo II with 8K and FLIR Boson thermals?  Seems better than the XT2.  Imo, I think it's stupid to not have RGB optical zoom support.  Having zoom capabilities in the air means you can get close and punch-in w/o risking getting super close, get microbursted, and now the drone is on the ground because it crashes into the structure.  I understand how most of the drone world doesn't really care too much about the zoom but the stuff I've seen it do is amazing.  I just doesn't look like a premium drone on paper compared to the M2P but the zoom takes the droning capability to another level.

A drone weighing 8-9lbs like inspire 2 won't hurt anything on the refinery plants even at max velocity of free fall.

It would be a drone with bombs that would.. and ofcourse countries are rich enough to get funded as well for military grade drones.
Commercial drones could still do damage though if it's payloaded entirely with explosives.

The better autel for photography and videography would be the 1 inch sensor 6k 60 fps and 120fps with 4k. You can only upload 4k most online applications. So 8k half inch sensor is not as good as we thought. Half inch sensors do bad on lowlight, whilst 1 inch sensors do the average ok job on low light.

8k with a huge sensor like the x7 though would be good at pro film making.

In low light half inch will perform badly in light details

The one inch performs enough on low light.

But even in daylight half inch has less details
Just like mavic2z and mavic2p

It is hard to believe how much ignorance, misinformation, naivety and plain rubbish a single thread can contain. Two kids trying to impress each other with "expert" knowledge of the issue both have very slight idea about. One is salivating over 8K hype, another is trying to compare 1" Mavic's camera sensor with RED's technology. Grow up, boys ... And what all this brainstorming has to do with TB48 batteries shortage ?

The range is very bad indeed because of fw 1.11. But I'm using 1.8, able to do 5 miles one way stock. Too bad you already sold yours. 4/3 sensor still the best for lowlight.
And yeah the flight time is the main dis but 15+min is still enough for me. I know the current dji drones have it at 20+min which makes it more than enough.

I had the XT but sold it to the one who sold me his XT.  I got an immaculate Inspire 1 Pro (X3) with a lot of additions from someone else.  It just sits  I thought I can do 65mph+ but w/o a tailwind it won't do it.  The best you can get is 40mph but when you start venturing far out the signal goes to s*.  With the M2 you can keep going w/o the signal disappearing.  Sometimes I forgot about all the issues that could take place if something were to go wrong.  I just take-off and go and come back like I did nothing.

Try atti mode to go 50mph no wind.
I know in gps mode top speed is 40mph.
But if the battery is real old like over 100 cycles and maybe not well taken cared of.
Flight time could be really low even with x3. The propulsion output will be heavily limited by software as well.

I did, the drone is gone now.  The most it got up to was 29.0 m/s.  It was cool to shoot at very high-speeds w/ no props in view but it was more of a burdened luxury than a necessity as I don't really care too much about making film anymore.  Flying too fast sideways also doesn't look right plus if anything goes wrong in the air w/ a drone of that size and speed, it would cause massive damage.  The M2 can do 20.0 m/s like it's nothing and like the Inspire, if there is high winds the speed is crippled.  The Inspire was limited to 13 m/s when the batteries were cold and/or the winds are too high.

A very stable platform of course and if nothing else existed then it would still be great.  Imo, if it wasn't for the speed and the XT, I think the M2 is more ideal.
