Some say DJI's new design is reminiscent of a dinosaur skull, which in our books is not necessarily a bad thing when it looks this good! The Inspire 1 is a major improvement when compared to its predecessor, the Phantom. It is capable of streaming 1080p video up to a mile away and at a price of $2,800 (£2749), the Inspire 1 is reasonably priced but not cheap (Phantom RRP $1,000/£999).
One of the most notable aspects of this new breed of drone is the way the Inspire 1's "gull-wing" legs pivot upwards after take off to ensure the camera is not obstructed, offering uninterrupted 360-degree views - a practical and cool feature! Another feature that will really appeal to professionals is dual controller operation. This means that one operator can focus on flight while the other controls the camera.
