The well-built, incredibly powerful DJI Inspire 1 Camera Drone is a behemoth of a drone. It comes with an upgrade-able 4k camera that’s also remove-able, just in case you need to do some handheld video. At 6.5lbs and 11.9×17.2×17.8 inches, it’s one of the largest, yet sturdiest camera drones out there. Instead of plastic like many of the other drones available on the market, the DJI Inspire 1 is built with metal components and a black carbon fiber frame.
The landing gear is retractable, and as the drone lifts off, the propellers and gears raise up out of the camera’s field of view. This gives you an unobstructed, 360 degree field of view for the camera lens, which can rotate to face any direction you desire. It can be a bit difficult to handle the camera and flying at the same time, but the DJI Inspire supports up to two controllers so you and your co-pilot can focus on either flying or filming. You can purchase the DJI Inspire 1 with two controllers, or just buy a second remote later on.
Camera Resolution: 12MP | Video Resolution: 4K at 30 FPS | Flight Time: 18 minutes | Max Speed: 50mph
