It's Almost Here: The DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter

The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter comes with its own camera

There’s been no denying the explosion in popularity of drone camera platforms in the past few years and this week DJI, the company at the forefront of the industry, took a giant leap forward when it revealed the new DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter.

At a special event on San Francisco’s Treasure Island, DJI announced the new flying camera system as the evolution of everything they’ve learned over their eight-year history of building Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or UAVs. Their popular Phantom quadcopter system required you to attach your own camera or to attach a video transmitter to see a live stream from the camera. This time out, DJI is providing a completely integrated system right out of the box.
