Superior Autonomy from Redundant Sensors
As the premier manufacturer of drones, DJI is already known for the trmendous reliability of their drones. Unforseen things happen with electronics occasionally; however, if a sensor does go down, the ability to get the job done will not be hindered. Inspire 2 has both GPS and GLONASS, so if one system becomes unavailable, the other will pick up guidance responsibilities. It even has redundant compasses and IMUs as well as dual sensors forward, overhead and below.
If a battery should fail, Inspire 2 returns home safely on its other battery. Then, it will accurately return to the shooting position it left off at after you swap out fresh batteries. Even better, you can hot swap, which definitely is a time saver.
Lightbridge: Long Range Dependability
Video transmission is through DJI’s Lightbridge program. It has a range of 4.3 miles. And it has two frequencies - 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz. If the Inspire 2 detects interference on one frequency, it automatically switches to the other. That keeps your streamed video constant and sharp.
You work to make sure nothing gets in the way of your career, or of an important assignment, so it’s only appropriate that nothings gets in the way of your Inspire 2, either.
Inspire 2 can sense obstacles a far away as 94 feet, even when it flies as fast as 34 mph. It will sense and avoid obstacles whether you are at the controls, you use Tap Fly, or Return to Home is activated.
Flying indoors? Sensors detect overhead objects as a far away as 16 feet, and objects in front as close as 2 feet.
With ActiveTrack, the Inspire can recognize and follow its subject. But what if the subject is walking uneven terrain - along a trail, or up and down stairs? Inspire 2’s bottom sensors help it recognize changes in terrain. It will follow along just as it’s supposed to, maintaining a uniform height off the ground.
Four 15-inch propellers - the huge props generate gobs of thrust - can accelerate the Inspire 2 from 0 to 50 mph in just 4 seconds. Your equipment van won’t come close.
Filming a chase scene? The crooks will outrun the cops before they escape the Inspire 2, which can hit 67 mph and maneuver to follow their every turn. After all, it will lock onto them. Want to get that elevated shot fast? Inspire 2 can climb at 19.7 feet per second. Go ahead and yell “Close up!” Inspire 2 can descend at a breathtaking 29 feet per second. You won’t miss a single, valuable high-def frame of action.
Return to Home
Return to Home is engineered to get your drone back safely to you if a signal is lost or power becomes unacceptably low. Return to Home is smart. Return to Home is safe. Return to Home is insurance on your investment.
Here’s how it works: The Inspire 2 creates a real-time map of the route you direct it to take. That’s part of what the vision sensors do. If Return to Home is activated automatically, the Inspire 2 goes to its memory of the route - the safe, obstacle-free route it just took - and follows it home.
If the signal is restored, the Inspire 2 flies home on a straight line, automatically avoiding obstacles in its path.
Live TV from the Inspire 2
For a TV crew using an Inspire 2, transmitting images live for a real-time television broadcast is quite simple. The 1080i50 or 780p60 video streamed from the Inspire 2 can go straight into living rooms. Just connect the Inspire 2 remote controller to the satellite truck. With a satellite link, the signal can be sent instantly anywhere in the world.
TapFly Frees Your Hands
With TapFly, you can touch an area of the FPV screen and the Inspire 2 will follow the route you designate. That frees the pilot’s hands from commanding the drone. It lets the pilot concentrate on aerial imaging. TapFly lets you pay attention to gimbal movement, not the flight route.
The Inspire 2 produces quality video and stills with either of two cameras available. Both are stabilized by DJI’s motorized, nearly silent 3-axis gimbal. Their performance is elevated by a DJI CineCore processor, which is built into the Inspire 2 itself.
- The DJI X5S and X7 cameras accept interchangeable lenses, ranging from a wide angle 18 mm equivalent in 35mm format, to a 90 mm equivalent telephoto lens for tighter shots. CineCore 2 processing, which is built into the Inspire 2 body, allows the X5S to shoot cinematic-quality 5.2K video at 30fps. It shoots 4K video at 60fps. Stills are recorded at 20.8MP, and they are shot in mind-boggling 20 fps bursts.
Although the gimbal and camera can be removed from the Inspire 2, no Osmo Handheld System for the X5S camera is yet available. It’s coming, however, so stay tuned. Until that time, you can handhold the Inspire 2 for ground video, relying on its gimbal to smooth your hand and body movements from the video. The Inspire 2 weighs about 7.6 pounds.
Shooting Modes: Like Having Extra Hands
ActiveTrack lets you lock onto your subject, but shooting modes in the Inspire 2 let you get sophisticated video and stills even if you don’t have a dedicated camera operator.
Quick Mode locks onto and begins following the subject immediately.
Composition Mode memorizes the subject, then begins tracking the subject when it enters a certain area, needing only your command. The gimbal settings can be changed for creative shots.
Point of Interest lets you lock on a subject and circle it, recording as you go.
With Waypoints, you can fly a route and mark certain spots, and the drone will automatically fly the route, stop where you told it to, and record, then hover or return home - your choice.
Spotlight keeps an object in the frame as you maneuver your Inspire 2 for creative angles. Climb, dive, circle, hover - with Spotlight, your subject remains in your images.
*Note the Inspire 2 does NOT come with a Camera*
INSPIRE 2 - POWER BEYOND IMAGINATION
The Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first film-making drone in the world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360° rotating gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe.
The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 4 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 67mph (108kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size.
A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S), while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2, providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy.
Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration.

The Inspire 2 creative workflow has been completely optimized and is now capable of recording video in CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes, and other common formats for post production filmmaking. Also supported are FAT32/exFAT* file systems, which allow fast copying of files direct from the CINESSD without additional software.
SENSE AND AVOID
Forward and downward vision systems enable the Inspire 2 to detect obstacles up to 30 meters ahead, allowing for protected flight at up to 34mph (54kph) at a controllable attitude angle of 25°. Upward facing infrared sensors scan obstacles 16.4ft (5m) above, adding protection when flying in enclosed spaces. Obstacle sensing systems are active during normal flight, RTH and all Intelligent Flight Modes.
These sensors are core components for the DJI FlightAutonomy system, which brings the below intelligent features to the Inspire 2:
Spotlight Pro is a powerful tracking mode that allows even single pilots to capture complex, dramatic images. It uses advanced visual tracking algorithms to lock onto a subject during flight, regardless of the direction that the Inspire 2 flies, creating shots that would once have required a dedicated camera operator. If the gimbal comes close to reaching its rotation limits, the Inspire 2 itself will rotate in the same direction without affecting flight control or the shot being captured to free up gimbal movement.
It has two shooting modes, Quick Mode and Composition Mode.
INTELLIGENT FLIGHT MODES
In addition to Spotlight Pro, a range of other intelligent flight and shooting modes are available. Obstacle avoidance is optimized when using Point of Interest* and Waypoint* modes, making complex shots simple and repeatable. Also available are QuickSpin, TapFly and ActiveTrack to simplify challenging shots.
The ActiveTrack Mode allows the Inspire 2 to recognize a range of objects, from people to bikes to cars to boats. Tracking profiles that can be adjusted based on the subject being tracked means greater tracking precision.
SMART RETURN TO HOME
Forward and downward vision systems allow the Inspire 2 to create a real-time map of its flight route as it flies. If the video transmission signal is lost and Smart Return Home is enabled, it is able to fly home along its original route and change to a straight line when it regains a signal.
As it returns, it will use the primary camera to identify obstacles as far as 200m in front, allowing it to plan a safe route home. It is also able to reconnect more quickly after losing its connection.
OPTIMIZED TRANSMISSION AND CONTROL SYSTEM
The latest update to DJI Lightbridge technology has an effective transmission distance of up to 4.3mi (7km)* and is capable of delivering both 1080p/720p video as well as the FPV view to pilot and camera operator. Uses can also switch between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz** control frequencies to cut through noise for greater signal stability.
*Unobstructed, free of interference, FCC compliant
**5.8GHz transmission is not available for some regions due to local regulations.
POWERFUL FLIGHT PERFORMANCE
A new propulsion system optimized for power creates a new level of flight performance. The Inspire 2 flies at up to 67mph (108kph) descends at 9m/s and climbs at 6m/s. It can accelerate from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just four seconds and flies at a max attitude angle of 40°.
The two controller sticks are tuned for more sensitivity, making delicate maneuvers easier.
More power also allows the Inspire 2 to fly in more extreme conditions, including over 2500-5000m above sea level (using optional dedicated propellers), and in temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C) using self-heating Intelligent Flight Batteries.
Reliability has been further enhanced through dual redundancy of key modules such as the IMU, compass and barometer. The intelligent flight control system monitors the redundancy system, giving it accurate flight data.
The new obstacle sensing system helps the Inspire 2 sense and avoid obstacles, minimizing the risk of collision.
Dual batteries mean that if a problem occurs in one battery, the other is able to continue flight long enough for a safe landing. At the same time, the Inspire 2 propulsion system is driven a PWM signal with serial port signal redundancy so that if PWM signals are lost, transmission will continue through the serial port.
The propulsion system has been trusted for thousands of hours to ensure reliability, when combined with key sensors and a dual-battery design, overall flight reliability is significantly enhanced.

A Drone Warranty is an Absolute Necessity!
Anyone who has ever flown a drone before will tell you two things:
- You can never have enough charged batteries
- You WILL crash the drone at some point
Even the most seasoned drone pilots still occasionally crash their drones. Accidents are inevitable for many reasons:
- Sudden gust of wind
- Over-correction to avoid an obstacle (or bird or another drone)
- Collision with an obstacle (or bird or another drone)
- Pilot inexperience
- Mid-air component failure
- Loss of battery power
- (and dozens of other truly bizarre stories we have heard over the years)
Not all crashes are fatal to drones. Sometimes they just need a new propeller or two and sometimes they just get a bit scuffed up. Anything beyond that, and repairs can get expensive - especially if the camera that came with the drone gets damaged. If the drone is too badly damaged, it cannot be repaired or the repairs are so expensive, you are better off buying a whole new drone.
We cannot stress strongly enough the importance of having extra drone warranty coverage. The manufacturer will not cover anything if your drone has been involved in a crash, regardless of the reason. And, like cell phone companies, they will always look for the slightest bit of "water damage" do deny warranty claims for any component failures.
[Note: Drone protection plan options will be offered during the checkout process.]
Drone coverage only applies to what came in the actual drone package and not to anything additional that may have been bundled with the drone (batteries and propellers excluded). There is a $200 deductible associated with any damage claim to a DJI Inspire 2.
What does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover?
The CPS Accidental Drone Warranty covers full parts and labor on all internal hardware failure, as well as the extra added benefit of Accidental Damage Protection. This contract is specifically for drones used recreationally (consumer use only). Deductible applies at time of claim.
Does the Drone coverage start on the date of purchase, or is it an extended warranty plan?
The CPS Accidental Drone Warranty coverage begins on the end user’s date of purchase. For example, if the customer purchases a drone with a 2 year CPS plan, they will receive 2 total years from date of purchase. There is a 30 day claims hold to prevent DOAs or manufacturer defects, and CPS coverage will begin on day 31. Any claims that occur during that first 30 days would not be covered under this plan.
Does accidental coverage protect my drone against crashes?
Yes it does! This is exactly what the CPS Accidental Drone warranty is for. It covers physical damage, excessive damage, impact damage, water damage, and everything in between.
What doesn’t the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover?
Unfortunately this contract will not cover lost or stolen products, routine maintenance products (like propellers), consumables (like batteries) or any add-on accessories, whether they were part of a bundled purchase or not.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover the camera or gimbal?
No. The Inspire 2 drone does not come with a gimbal and camera. They are considered to be optional add-on accessories.
Will the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover propellers?
Replacing the drone’s propellers is a maintenance issue and is not covered under warranty. Propellers are user replaceable parts. Depending on the manufacturer, it is recommended to replace propellers if you notice a change in flight experience or experience noisy/unbalanced flight.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover the rechargeable battery?
Batteries are consumables and are not covered under warranty.
What happens if the remote control malfunctions or is damaged. Would that be covered as well?
Great question! CPS will cover the remote (that was included in the box from the manufacturer) for full parts and labor on any hardware malfunctions, as well as any accidental damage claims. If the remote was not part of the original package by the manufacturer (even if it was an add-on in a bundle), it will not be covered.
How would I file a claim? Is there anything I would need to have?
Filing a claim is easy! You can contact CPS by phone or email to file a claim. You also can file a claim directly through your CPS Client Care account, and via the chat on CPS website. You would need to submit your CPS Membership ID # to file a claim, the drone’s serial #, along with a copy of your original purchase receipt.
Who will repair my drone? Is there anywhere I can bring their drone in locally for service?
After providing the deductible payment, you will be directed to ship your product at your expense to CPS’s depot repair facility. Once received, based on the manufacturer, the drone will either be fixed by our in house Drone Repair Center or sent to the manufacturer directly. Unfortunately at this time you would be unable to repair your drones locally, as CPS would not be able to control the quality of the repair.
I noticed that a deductible applies at time of claim, how is that determined?
Drone coverage only applies to what came in the actual drone package and not to anything additional that may have been bundled with the drone. It applies to the drone, any camera that was attached to the drone by the manufacturer and the remote if included in the drone package by the manufacturer. The amount of the deductible is determined by the retail price of the drone, itself.
Will my coverage continue after CPS repairs my drone?
Yes it will! The coverage will remain in place until the contract expires, or unless the drone is replaced under warranty.
How many claims can I file over the life of their warranty plan?
You can file unlimited claims on their product, but coverage will cap out once the repair costs reach the original purchase price of their product.
What happens if the service center cannot repair the drone because of excessive damage, or if it’s beyond economical repair?
If CPS cannot fix the drone, CPS will replace it. CPS also will offer you the option of a check for the cost of the replacement.
Will the CPS coverage continue on to the replacement drone?
Unfortunately no, once the drone is replaced the CPS contract is considered fulfilled. You can purchase a new Drone Warranty for their replacement unit.
If I lost my drone, can they transfer the warranty over to the new drone I am purchasing?
Unfortunately no, if a unit is lost, the CPS warranty coverage would be voided and, therefore, not transferable to another drone.
I am selling my drone, can I sell the warranty with it?
You absolutely can. Transferring ownership is simple via the CPS Customer Experience Department. Please note, a $25.00 transfer fee will apply.
Does the CPS Accidental Drone Warranty cover commercially used drones?
This plan will only cover drones used recreationally (consumer use only). Unfortunately we do not have coverage for commercial pilots at this time.
