Hi Dji,

Will the New TB55 Batteries, XT Thermal and Z30 Zoom be an option for upgrade to the Inspire 2?

yea, I wonder if they are too heavy for the I2 too keep balance.
Wish the I2 had the ability to mount the gimbal up top. While it would not be used often, would get amazing shots with that capability.

That would definitely put a hole in all the DJI reps comments of " Inspire 1 cameras are NOT compatible with the Inspire 2"

Looks like it is physically possible, But I would not be surprised if that adapter is firmware locked for the M200 only.

I'll bet its not as fast as the I2.  But It would be nice to mount my Z3 on something.  I want those batteries too, in fact I'm not buying anymore TB50s until these come out.

From what I read they will be over the "check in baggage" MHa but not sure by how much!

I've heard an official source on another forum confirm the t-55 is not I2 compatible at this time.

At the moment, we have no information as to whether or not it would be available for the I2. As you mentioned, it could very well be the case that there would be a firmware discrapancy that would allow that half of the mount to be used with the I2. DJI is moving towards having particular cameras that are to be used with specific product for realistic use. The Z30 is an industrial camera, it's not made for purpose of a cinema platform like the Inspire.

It wouldn't be ideal to have the cameras mount on top like that as it would block the FPV camera.

Hi Jamie,

Please continue to check on the gimbal adapter, and if it could be used on the Inspire 2.

I guess there are quite a few people like me, who invested heavily in the Inspire 1 with expensive cameras like the X5/X5R and XT. The heavy cost is nowadays the cameras, not the drones.

Personally I have all three of them. So it is a serious amount of money that you got from me. I can't upgrade to the Inspire 2 now, because no camera works there. So I'm kind of stuck with an Inspire 1 that will probably not get much more support with less software support and less available spare parts.

With a small and cheap product like a gimbal adapter, you could make customers happy by giving them some breathing room between the fast hardware releases, and an upgrade path.

I mean, look what amount of money you got from me, and what does it cost for DJI to make a small gimbal adapter that clearly works with the XT as it is announced to work on the M200, that then should also work in the Inspire 2?

And, how about making the XT work on the DJI Osmo? Just a firmware fix. Still not happened...

If DJI won't make firmwares or adapters that sees to compatibility, at least make an upgrade path for the hardware. So If we for instance have an Inspire 1 with X5R, we could get a discount if I send it in to DJI and upgrade to the Inspire 2. Just like as you go to your car dealer and trade in your care.

I think more to the point it would "block the GPS signal" if you take into account the extras (RTK) used in the 210-RTK for the gimbal/camera on top.

Hey Rob. I really do think Jamie is top man at DJI although he might like the title and pay packet to go along with it.

With reference to post #13 I'm not sure that this is going to be possible!!!

Unless you get shorter Props made to enable the larger (wider) batteries to sit in place.

I guess we will see in due course!

Hi Mafia16,   If you put the rear pros on the I2 and slide in the tb50 there is not much room. I don't think there's anyway the TB55's will fit.

Maybe get some shorter carbon props made???

It has been confirmed on another Forum by someone at DJI that the TB55 Batteries will NOT be compatible with the Inspire 2.   The larger size of the batteries would cause an issue with prop clearance.

Thanks but I already have crunched the numbers. the approx size of the TB55 is 55 to 57mm wide and the TB50 is 35mm wide.
With only 9.5 mm clearance  between the rear prop and the TB50 there is no way that it will fit unless someone like Lynh Phan makes a carbon prop that is smaller.
