DJI Inspire 2 Taps the Brakes on Top Speed and Acceleration
DJI Inspire 2 release

Someone at DJI spoke to Goose and decided the Inspire 2 was no good at a top speed of 67 mph. The official reason is tapping the brakes won’t allow anything to fly right by, but ensure stable video quality.

The new top speed of the Inspire 2 is 58 mph, and it can hit 0-50 mph in five seconds – up from four. Does it matter? In the grand scheme of things, no, but damn if I didn’t want to push the throttle to its stop.

DJI Inspire 2 features

DJI’s revision comes after optimization and testing of the airframe, propulsion and gimbal system. And buried in the announcement is the fact the Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 will be enjoying a new app – DJI GO 4. It’s available on both iOS and Android, but you’re starting to see old tablets and phones become unsupported.

It’s never a good thing, but the company is hemmed in with iOS versions. Eventually, the constant upgrades render older iPhones and iPads unusable. For those that have to buy a new tablet, you can make the argument DJI wants people using the new DJI Phantom 4 Pro controller and the upcoming CrystalSky product.

DJI CrystalSky

Yes, it closes the ecosystem, but you don’t suddenly wake up to a firmware or app upgrade that says goodbye to that old iPad Mini. It’s a tradeoff of either keeping your tablets semi-updated or using DJI’s proprietary system.

Don’t worry about the top speed. It’ll come back via propulsion upgrades from third-party distributors. We all have a need for speed.
