With all the hysteria, I wanted to make a thread to try and gain a general sample of all the successful flights.It could also help to get a little confidence and good energy flowing through this community!


I got my Inspire on the 3rd of January.
I've had about 17 successful flights and have experienced no problems.

I've flown in moderate winds (roughly 10-15mph),
Have only topped her at 20mph
And have climbed up to 318ft. She's been in 38 degrees Fahrenheit but hasn't seen real heat yet.

I always hand tighten my props and do a compass calibration (between battery switch too)

I'm still extremely cautious and always do pre flight checks.
The only bug I've run into, is my IMU advanced calibration failing to complete 100% and I'm still digging for the answer.

Overall, she flies like a beauty!!!
Still anxious for my prop locks.

Safe flyin!!

Good idea to start this! I have had 5 very successful flights. More importantly, very impressive footage. Only smiles my side Cant give away too much as this footage is going into a project this week, but this is one shot I got.

I've had over 30 successful flights and batteries are charged and ready for  it's next flight when the weather gives me a break. I've flown in temps as low as 18. Ive done maybe 4 IMU calibrations I calibrate the compass each and every time I take it out. If I'm in the same area and don't move I don't do any cals in between battery changes. I have a set checklist I go through each and every time. I believe consistency is a key to successful flights, Just like real pilots they have a check list they go through each and every time!!! I have flown in big metal buildings where it was rock solid!!! Most of the flight were from Ohio and a couple from Wisconsin. My second controller will be here Thursday and I'm excited to take it out with duel operators Anyway all good here in OHIO INSPIRE ONE ROCKS!!!!! My dealer said yesterday my prop locks where on there way as well.

Mike, are you employed by DJI.  The indoor flight looks very like a promotional video by DJI at or around the original release date in 2014

No I don't work for DJI sorry. But that was shot a couple weeks back when I went up to a drone event around Green Bay Wisconsin. I live in Ohio and drove up as I was thought to have the only DJI Inspire 1 that they knew of and they had lots of people that wanted to see it first hand so why not They had 3 News channels that showed up to film the flying footage as well.

Ive had some great flights with the inspire, my 1st one went a bit out of the ordinary but that had a build date of 14th December and they immediately sent a replacement out, and this one is build date 10th January with the different carbon weave. Only problem with this one is  the scary drifting with a mind of its own, but it all seems to be fine as-long as you follow your checklist on pre flight.

I've had  a month of flying frequently but have to count my recharges or log or whatever to be specific.  One balance issue last weekend that I now believe is resolved.  Flown a wide range of altitude and distance and wind conditions.  Have accelerated enough in P GPS mode to satisfy me that abrupt halting does not affect my props and that the balance issue I had on that one day was a function of IMU degradation.  Also have been happy with the smoothness you get out of it in A mode.  I have had a few issues with arming the Inspire for flight and I think that is to do with the Pilot App. Overall I'd say the exhilaration outweighs any issues I've had.

Flown three successful flights and am loving it! Trying to take it slow as there seems to be a lot to learn about this machine (I've only ever flown Phantom 1, 2 and Vision before) but am very happy with its performance. The rollout process has been bumpy, to say the least, but in my eyes totally worth it!

Im using iOS version 0.9.2 on an iPad mini 2.  Mostly cooler weather, yesterday was the first day below 32 degrees.  I only have 2 batteries and they have been lasting about 15-16 minutes of flying.

I'm sitting at 60 flights, spanning just under 6hrs time and over 130k feet covered. I'm continuing to hold out hope and stick with iOS v0.9.2 on the iPad Mini 3 I bought specifically for the I1. I echo that I have been lovin' every single minute of it! Weather permitting, my weekends and most week nights have been consumed with cycles of flying & recharging like some sort of quadcopter power junkie.

The IMU has been calibrated half a dozen times and I've dealt with most of the minor issues many have run into around here - like the P GPS -> Atti during the first few minutes and the occasional spastic camera twitch, but have generally been problem free. Operating with two batteries has been keeping me afloat the past few weeks, but I can't wait to see the those numbers rocket up once the others arrive.
