Does the DJI Ground Station App work with the Inspire 1?

It does not.

DJI has said it will become available but has not given a release date.  The rumor mill is circulating the rumor that DJI will never actually make Ground Station available for the Inspire but will depend instead on third-party developers making equivalent functionality available via the SDK.

DJI representative Tahoe_Ed, who posts here frequently, believes Ground Station WILL be available from DJI but that it is still a few months out.

In short: no one knows for sure.

Sorry for possibly asking a stupid question but are you guys talking about the new hardware there looking to roll out which you can clip the I1 camera to and use it as a ground camera???

No, sorry mate. The DJI Ground Station is a software app.

Looks like 3DR Solo (See:  http://3drobotics.com/ )  is serious competition to the Inspire & DJI may want to rethink their "timeline" for ground station.

James,

Ground Station is a software application that allows you to preprogram the route you want your aircraft to fly.  So if you're shooting video (for instance) and you want a complex difficult-to-navigate route flown, you can set it up in advance rather than having to free-form it.  Then the aircraft will execute the preprogrammed flight according to the waypoints you've created.  Ground Station was "due out soon" when the Inspire went on sale in November.  We're still waiting.

Since DJI promised it, lets hope they deliver.  There are plenty of us who are tired or empty promises

They are one of the SDK developers that are developing Apps for the Inspire and the P3'S Professional and Advanced.  It is happening.  DJI may also step in.  I am not sure right now.

This is something I really don´t need the way I intend to use my inspire ... but I am curious about it.

If developed by a third party ... do this mean they need to do a complete new "pilot app" or is it implemented to the DJI pilot app?

Yeah I am hoping the Groundstation when released for the Inspire is integrated into the current DJI Pilot App.

O man, this seems to be going around in decending spirals!  And, quickly!  From empty promises, to newly established expectations, to the introduction of 3rd parties, now to whether it will be an integrated or seperate app!  Man, I bought my I1 because of this feature!

I am amazed that anyone actually cares so much about this. Have the expensive version for my S1000 and used it once. Beside for fun, what work would anyone do using this?  Would this auto flight not breech insurance and transport Canada laws?  I prefer to fly and stay in control.

Being able to fly a good grid allows for capturing images with a defined amount of overlap (both front & side). With good overlap in the 70-80% range, computer software can do tie point matching/extraction and can be used to generate high resolution 3d models similar to a LIDAR scanner.  This is the future of aerial mapping/survey.....

I have to admit that as much as I am enjoying my P3 Pro I am also very disappointed. One of the reasons I bought it was the GPS waypoint flying or Ground Station! To now find that DJI can't even give me an estimated time frame for the introduction of this software! What I find astonishing is that it is already available on their previous model, the P2 V+?
This must be very damaging to their reputation and will surely lead to a loss of their competitive edge as other manufacturers develop similar applications.
I urge DJI to speed up the release of Ground Station for P3 owners who have already invested in this technology without actually getting it!

Agree with you Laurence,

But this has been one of the forum main topic since 8 months and nothing happened yet.
We are expecting a new beta test next week, and hope that it will be part of it...
Wait and see.

happy landings

As a solo operator, I'm definitely for it. There have been several opportunities during past flights when I could have utilised a function like this to help fly around/ over objects of interest leaving me free to focus on camera movements.

That said, not having this ability has certainly forced me to perfect smooth-motion transitions and improve my flying skills.

I think anyone wanting to do "Paid" serious work would do it right.
I use a camera operator, and have an operations manager for the ground control.  He is the boss, checks wind, time, etc.
When someone is paying you thousands of dollars, you don't try to scrimp and do it with one person in my eyes.  No way a single operator can do what a team can do.
