DJI Inspire 1 Review
  • - 4.5
Flight time is limited, so an extended capacity battery (or three) is a recommended purchase for videographers planning on using the Inspire professionally—and you'll likely want to work with a dedicated camera operator, or use a software tool like the third-party Autopilot app, to really take advantage of the freely spinning camera gimbal. If you don't need that type of versatility, consider instead the DJI Phantom 3 Professional, which is a fine choice for enthusiasts and pros alike—it's our Editors' Choice winner for consumer models. But for pilots who need a bit more than the Phantom series offers, the Inspire 1 is an excellent performer, and an Editors' Choice winner as well.

Dreamy ready-to-fly 4K-camera drone with an upgrade path
  • - 4.1
The DJI Inspire 1 is basically a prosumer drone, good for professionals or well-heeled enthusiasts looking for a better ready-to-fly aerial photography platform than the smaller Phantom-type drones. That said, it's still expensive and, regardless of how good it is compared to other high-power quadcopters, battery life can seem all too short, and if you want to be able to use a dSLR or mirrorless compact, you'll want to look elsewhere for a multirotor that already lets you use those things and not wait around for DJI to make the camera you want.
