comercial work.

Nice tanks for sharing your photos. Retired from Power, I can see this very useful for insulator inspections. To bad the Inspire 2 cannot use Flir /IR cameras.... you need the M200 series for that

Yes, but I typically inspect 60kv, and substations.

Unfortunately, I had to choose between either the I2 or the M200 series. With the problems that are or were with the M200 series I chose I2.

Which lens do you use? How close do you have to fly in order to capture sufficient detail for inspection?

Were the problems not caused by the TB50 batteries that are used on both drones?

There has been some other issues with the camera cables and gimbal mount breaking. DJI sent out some warning bulletins on these. The TB batteries is another issue too

It is a great machine!

I am very happy with my Inspire 2 over all. DJI tends to break things when rolling out FW, but they usually get worked out in the end.

It was only a few cases and I am sure that DJI will get this solved for the enterprise folks

I'm sure they will - temp restrictions have already been lifted here by the CAA.
