If you\u2019re looking for the best professional drone, you\u2019ll find a leading contender in the DJI Inspire 1 Pro. It comes with all the intelligent flight features you\u2019d expect from a leading DJI drone and a high-quality camera that puts most other drone cameras to shame. It\u2019s expensive though. You\u2019ll definitely be paying for quality when it comes to this drone.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - DJI Inspire 1 Pro\r\nThe DJI Inspire 1 Pro is unlike any drone you\u2019ve seen before. With a menacing appearance and highway-worthy top speeds it\u2019s like a demon is coming after you. It\u2019s hefty construction, including it\u2019s 18 pound weight, also helps it to be one of the stablest drones on the market as well.\r\n\r\nSpeed\/Power\r\nYou wouldn\u2019t want to be on the receiving end of a collision with this drone, especially considering the max speed is a whopping 49mph. And while it isn\u2019t strictly necessary to need to go faster, you can if you get the DJI Inspire 2. Your airborne browsing experience will be another positive with the drone containing all the intelligent flight modes common to the brand and all are controllable via the DJI Go App. You\u2019re not limited to your mobile phone this time though. So feel free to use your iPad Air if you want!\r\nRange\r\nIf there\u2019s one thing this flight battery model could be better at, it\u2019s flight time. At 20 minutes, it hardly beats out most of the competition from entry-level models! Consider the DJI Mavic 2 Pro 4K Drone for longer flight time. The operating range is also only about 16 feet, so your piloting skills must be top-notch if you\u2019re looking to fly it above a crowd.\r\nDurability\r\nWith a mixture of metal, carbon fiber, and plastic, the DJI Inspire 1 is a tough, not to mention scary-looking, piece of equipment. This pro version also includes the indoor positioning and retractable landing gear from the regular Inspire 1. It\u2019s hefty at 18 pounds, but that just means it has extra meat to stay stable during windy conditions, so we\u2019re counting this as a plus.\r\nCamera Features\r\nThe DJI Inspire 1 Pro uses a Zenmuse X5R camera to capture gorgeous 4K videos. The raw video files are stored in the 16GB micro SD Card and can be downloaded to your phone at 720P if you need the videos now. Honestly, the professional aerial imaging this drone is capable of is outstanding, but you can check out the DJI Phantom 4 Pro if you still want high quality images without having to pay an arm and a leg.\r\nValue\r\nThe DJI Inspire 1 Pro comes with a remote controller for those who don\u2019t really want to control it with their phone. The micro four thirds sensor also helps provide the DJI Inspire 1 Pro with very little noise while it\u2019s in the air flying. And we should probably get this out of the way, but the drone is very expensive, which we understand will turn off some prospective users.\r\nDJI Inspire 1 Pro Wrap Up\r\nIt\u2019s unfortunate that the DJI Inspire 1 can\u2019t beat entry-level drones in some categories, such as operating range and battery life. But this drones primary function seems to be recording video and stable flight, so I guess they had to prioritize one feature over another. If they made the right decision, well, that\u2019s up to you.
