From the makers of the FC-40 and the DJI Phantom Vision 2 and Phantom Vision 2 Plus comes a game changing multi-rotor you have to see to believe.
Check out the new DJI Inspire 1. The complete RTF (Ready To Fly) system.
A COMPLETE READY-TO-FLY SYSTEM
Everything you need is included and ready to go offering you a complete aerial film making tool in a box. Just add a mobile device or screen for live HD view.

DJI Inspire 1 features:
Change all of your camera settings.
LIVE MAP AND RADAR
See precisely where your Inspire 1 is at all times on the live map. The map can be enlarged when needed and shows your most recent flight path.
DYNAMIC HOME POINT
When GPS signal is available on the remote, the Home Point automatically refreshes. This becomes useful while traveling in a car or on a boat allowing the return-to-home point to move where the operator goes. Multiple configurations are available via the Dynamic Home Point function.
AUTO-TAKEOFF AND LANDING
Takeoff and landing is easier than ever before, with both functions just a tap away. Tap once to takeoff and your Inspire 1 will hover and transform, ready to start filming. Then tap again to make it transform into landing mode and auto land.
All of the information you need to fly safely is just a glance away. Altitude, flight speed, distance, and more are right at your fingertips.
REMOTE CONTROL CUSTOMIZATION
Put yourself in charge by tailoring the Inspire 1’s controls to your personal needs. This way, your Inspire 1 moves and responds in ways you’re most comfortable with.
