The DJI Inspire 2 and the Zеnmuѕе Х5Ѕ

blankThe Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first filmmaking drone in the world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360° rotating gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe.

The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 4 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 67mph (108kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S),while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2,providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration.

High resolution aerial photography is the ideal way to inspect and survey roofs. Using our remote-controlled drone we can access hard-to-reach places, inspecting your roof for damaged tiles or slates, moss build-up or storm damage. We can also inspect previous or new repairs. Our agile drone can navigate the valleys and parapets of a roof that cannot be viewed from the ground. Aerial photography is especially useful for inspecting heritage buildings and churches where damage to the roof can result in further damage to the fabric of the building.
