The DJI Inspire 2 with X5S camera is a compact and powerful quadrotor drone that can record 5.2K RAW or ProRes and 4K h.265 or h.264 video through its gimbal-stabilized, micro 4/3 camera. Key features include:

  • Gimbal-stabilized 5.2K/30 fps & 4K/60 fps MFT camera

  • 58 mph max speed & 0-50 mph in 5 seconds

  • 25-minute flight time from dual batteries

  • Drone control from up to 4.3 miles line-of-sight

Three-Axis Gimbal-Stabilized 4K Camera. The DJI Inspire 2 is a lightweight quadcopter that can shoot 5.2K RAW or ProRes to DJI CineSSD memory and simultaneously record 4K H.264 and H.265 video to MicroSD. Its photo mode offers the choice of DNG raw or JPEG images and burst shooting at up to 14 fps. The camera’s 20MP 1-inch CMOSsensor; fast mechanical and electronic shutters, and super-smooth, 3-axis stabilized gimbal ensure maximum sharpness for photo and video capture alike.

Control Options. The Inspire 2 gives you a variety of smartphone or tablet-based drone-control options. Spotlight Pro is an advanced tracking mode unique to the Inspire 2 that utilizes the drone’s 360 degree gimbal. Subjects can be tracked regardless of the direction the I2 is currently flying. In ActiveTrack Mode, you can program the drone to track an object while keeping it in frame. TapFly Mode is improved here thanks to the dedicated 2-axis onboard FPV camera and lets you tap anywhere on the screen to smoothly change direction while automatically avoiding obstacles in the drones forward path. In Return to Home Mode, the Inspire 2 will adjust its own flight path to use the best, most obstacle-free route home.

Flight Modes. The Inspire 2 includes three different flight modes, one of which is bound to suit your production’s requirements. Sport Mode (S) boosts the drone’s speed to 57 mph and substantially raises its agility. Position Mode (P) activates TapFly, Active Track, and positioning features for intelligent navigation. Altitude Mode (A) disables satellite stabilization and holds the drone steady, making it perfect for experienced pilots who want to capture smoother footage.

25 Minute Maximum Flight Time. DJI reports that in lab tests with ideal conditions (read: not the places you’ll likely be using it), this drone has a twenty five minute maximum flight time. A more realistic average is around 15 to 20 minutes dependent upon the lens mounted to the X5S. The Inspire 2 adds dual batteries to lessen the chance of a catastrophic battery failure, and a new self-heating design improves the battery life in cold temperatures.

Drone Control From 4.3 Miles. The included Inspire 2 Remote Controller simultaneously sends control signals and receives video-transmission signals at up to 4.3 miles with ideal line of sight. This controller lets you choose between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies so that you can avoid interference and eliminate image lag. Again, DJI reports this as the maximum distance with ideal line-of-sight conditions, so your literal mileage may vary.

Inspire Support and Resources. Click HERE to be swept away to DJI’s support site for the Inspire 2 drone. We’ve linked important videos and manuals at the bottom of this page, but there’s a lot more to learn! Go ahead and familiarize yourself with the videos and resources on the support page so you’ll have more time to actually fly when your rental arrives.

Q & A

Are there battery preparations specific to the Inspire 2?
  • Yes. The Inspire 2 can’t fly with a battery pair that has a charge discrepancy greater than 13%. For best performance, you should sync batteries as pairs in the app before flying or charging. In some cases, you may need to update the firmware to successfully sync a battery pair.

  • If you’d like labels to indicate your battery pairs, please request them in the Special Instructions box during checkout.

Will I need to rent any memory cards?
  • This version of the Inspire 2 is intended for RAW / ProRes capture to DJI’s proprietary CINESSD format. We include (2) DJI CINESSD 480GB and a USB 3.0 SSD Reader with the rental. If you think you’ll need more, we have them available to rent separately as well.

  • Do note that you must have a microSD memory card installed even if you’re recording to CineSSD. For that reason, we include (1) Sandisk UHS-1 microSDXC 32GB Extreme Plus U3 with the rental of this drone.

Is this drone package capable of recording RAW and ProRes?
  • Yes.

Does the Inspire 2 offer Dual Operator Mode?
  • When you rent a second remote alongside an Inspire 2 drone package, you have the option to enable Dual Operator Mode. With one remote controlling the drone and the other remote controlling the gimbal and camera, this mode allows for finer control of flight-path and camera movement using a master-and-slave configuration.

Is a lens included with the rental?
  • DJI Inspire 2 Premium Combo w/ Zenmuse X5S does not include a lens. However, we do have them available for rent separately. See them on the right-hand side of this page.

How do I update the firmware on the Inspire?
  • Firmware can be updated through an internet-connected computer using the supplied USB Male A by USB Male A cable. Firmware can also be updated through the app on an internet connected phone, or tablet, using the mobile device’s USB charger cable (not supplied).

What firmware will be installed on the drone?
  • We’ll update firmware as the equipment moves through our building. However, as drone firmware is updated on an almost daily basis, the user must ensure the firmware is current before flight. Without up-to-date firmware, drone functionality could be limited. Access to the internet is required to update drone firmware.

What devices will fit into the controller's mobile device holder?
  • The mobile device holder can fit up to an iPad Air sized device (no more than 6.69 in. tall).

Is the Inspire 2 compatible with X3, X5, or X5R cameras?
  • No. The Inspire 2 is currently only compatible with X4S, X5S, & X7 cameras.
