Get Started


Fully charging the Inspire 1 remote controller takes approximately 6 hours. It can be used for approximately 4 hours after being fully charged.

No more than 6 slave remote controllers (3 for Japan version) can be connected at the same time. The primary slave remote controller will be able to change the camera settings, as well as the tilt and yaw of the gimbal. The other slave remote controllers can only be used to change the parameters of the camera.

The Inspire 1’s camera has only a very minimal “fisheye” effect, especially when compared to other flying platforms. Dedicated lens profiles for Adobe products such as Photoshop or After Effects will be released soon. Note: The focal length of the Inspire 1 lens is equivalent to 20mm.

Yes. Just press and hold your finger on the Camera page of the GO app for a few seconds. A circle will appear, which can then be dragged to adjust the orientation of the camera.

4K video generates 450MB per minute. At this rate, a 16GB SD card can hold up to 36 minutes of footage

Press and hold the circular power button for 5 seconds to check the battery life. The Battery Level Indicators will light up and/or blink for 10 seconds. Remaining battery life is also displayed in the DJI Pilot app.

After prolonged use, the internal charge indicator thresholds can become less accurate. Performing a full charge/discharge cycle can re-calibrate the charging parameters and extend the life of the battery.

Photos are available when a mobile device is paired with the master remote controller and can be downloaded to the device.

Yes, all Inspire 1 units come with standard TB47 charger. With the standard TB47 100W charger, it takes 85 minutes to fully charge a 4500mAh battery.


You can follow these steps to check the status of the battery:

  • Check the battery for damage and deformities. If there are any signs of damage to the battery, stop using it and discharge the battery to 10% or below for disposal. Do not disassemble the battery for any reason.
  • Check the battery pins and rub them clean with an eraser if any residue is observed. This will help to ensure a more reliable connection.
  • Check the metal battery power connectors for damage. If the connectors appear burnt, try to clear them. This can be done by inserting a piece of sandpaper (1mm thick) into the connectors to polish the metal.
  • Check the contact pins in the battery compartment to ensure that the pins are clear. They should be able to establish easy contact with the battery connectors and should not be bent.
  • Check the electrodes on the battery. If they appear burnt, polish them with sandpaper. If there is serious erosion, send the battery in for repairs.
  • Check the plastic components of the battery bracket to see it is in good condition and that all screws are secure. This prevents the battery from becoming loose during flight.
  • Check the power cables between the arms and the center plate, if the cables are worn, contact DJI to arrange repairs.
  • For long term storage, please refer to the “Intelligent Flight Battery Safety Guidelines” and check the battery once a month to prevent the battery cell from being damaged.
  • Run the DJI Pilot App to confirm that all battery cells are at similar voltage levels and stay at the same level when the battery is fully charged. If all cells maintain voltage levels above 3.7V but any cell is 0.2V higher or lower than the others, contact DJI for analysis. You can also check the battery cell warning history.

The steps below detail if the transformation system is active:

  • Check the servomotor cables for wear. Also confirm that the connection points are still in good condition.
  • Check the lead screws and contact DJI Support to arrange repairs if any bending or damage is discovered. Clean the lead screws with WD-40 spray if they show signs of rust.
  • Listen to the servomotors during the transformation, if there is abnormal noise, it may indicate that the servomotors worn.
  • After the landing gear rises, check the lead screws and bearings. If any dirt or dust is found, clean and grease the bearings.
  • Check the lead screws. If there is any scratches, dents, or plastic particles underneath them, contact DJI Support to arrange repairs.

The steps below outline what should be inspected:

  • Confirm that all the screws are still adequately tightened.
  • Check the aircraft for breaks or damage. If there is any reason to believe that detectable damage might affect flight safety, consult with DJI Support.
  • Check the carbon tubes of the arms for damage.
  • Check the dampers on the landing gears. If they are loose, secure them with 502 glue.
  • Ensure that there are no obstacles on or around the GPS module or around the antennas on the landing gear. Remove any obstacles (such as tapes with conductive material) that might affect or block the signal.
  • Check that the right and left landing gear rest at the same tilt angle

Follow these steps to check if the motor housing needs replacement:

  • Check the rotors to confirm that they have not become loose.
  • Detach the propellers and start the motors. Listen carefully. If there is any abnormal noise, please replace the motors. This may be a sign that the bearings have been worn out.
  • Detach the propellers and start the motors. Carefully examine the edge of the rotor and confirm that the shaft is perfectly centered on the motor. Check for any abnormal or excessive vibration. If any problems are detected, contact DJI Support to order replacement motors.
  • Check for deformities by confirming that the gap between the motor and motor base is even. If not contact DJI Support to order replacement motors.
  • Ensure that the screws used to secure the motor base are tight and the plastic components around the motors are in good condition. If not please tighten the screws and contact DJI to repair any broken plastic components.

Here are some steps to see if your propellers are still manageable:

  • Check the propellers. If there is any bending, breakage or cracking on a propeller, do not use it.
  • Attach the propeller to the motor, turn on the aircraft, and place it on the ground. Stand 1 meter away from the aircraft and observe the rotating propellers. If you can see two distinct propeller outline layers, when looking at a spinning propeller from the side, this propeller is damaged and should not be used.

These two steps will instruct you if you need to calibrate your IMU:

  • Open DJI Pilot app to check the condition of the IMU and perform an advanced IMU calibration. Please place the aircraft in a cool environment and on a flat, stable surface (if the landing gear is damaged, support the aircraft with four objects of equal height). Do not touch the craft during the calibration.
  • Turn on the aircraft and listen for any abnormal noise or vibration from the fan located on the front of the aircraft. If any irregularity is detected, replace the fan.

This is how you inspect the CVTS:

  • Check the 4 antennas on the landing gear to ensure that they are secure. Also check for any bending or damage.
  • Check the antennas of the remote controller for damage
  • Check the neck strap for damage or wear, replace if necessary

Follow these steps to ensure proper gimbal and camera functionality:

  • The quick-mount connector for the camera is a particularly vulnerable component. If the gimbal fails to initialize when turned on, fails to work after initialization, or fails to transmit video to the app (while OSD data is displayed), the quick-mount connector may be worn. In this case, replace the rubber mat, circuit board, and/or connector on the gimbal quick-mount.
  • Check the metal contacts on the quick mount connector board, if any contact is bent, replace the quick-mount connector.
  • Check the contact pins on the quick-mount connector board, if there is any dirt, rub it clean with an eraser. If any contact pins are worn out it should be replaced.
  • Confirm that the gimbal is able to properly stabilize itself. If its stabilizing performance deteriorates, contact DJI to arrange repairs.
  • Listen for any abnormal noise from the fan when the gimbal is turned on. This may indicate unusual vibration and the fan should be replaced.

The steps below will ensure that the VPS is active:

  • Check the lens of the camera. If any dirt or residue is detected, gently clean the lens.
  • Check for and remove objects that might block the sensors.
  • Ensure that the Vision Positioning System is securely installed on the aircraft.
  • Detach the propellers and turn on the aircraft. Hold the aircraft 1-2 meters above a surface with rich patterns, under good lighting conditions. Change the Flight Mode switch to P Mode on the controller and check the DJI Pilot app. If the app displays an altitude value and indicates that P-OPTI mode is active, the Vision Positioning System should function normally.
