DJI Inspire 2 vs DJI Phantom 4 Pro – Which one to choose?
More and more gadgets appear on the market and more and more variants of which we don’t know how to choose. For this, we have chosen to ease your work and compare two of the latest DJI models describing with detail DJI Inspire 2 vs DJI Phantom 4 Pro.
In order to make a better distinction between the two drones, we will describe them successively, as the end we will compare some common features or specific properties.
Phantom 4 Pro
Let’s start with the Phantom 4 Pro and more precisely with its camera which has gone through great progress compared to the previous model. The camera has 20 megapixels and it shoots 4K at 60 fps and a maximum bitrate of 100 mbps. Also Phantom 4 Pro offers H.265 video compression, which considerably improves video quality at the same bitrate.
About the flight: with dual sensor both front and rear and infrared sensor side, this model is considered one of the safest of all. With the technology it has, this drone can anticipate the obstacles before it, avoiding them about 98 ft or 30 m. Battery efficiency is also higher than the previous model and can reach 30 minutes of flight.
The controller: design has not changed for a long time at DJI, but big changes come from within, like a micro SD card slot for the video backup and built in GPS for precise RTH. And yet the most noticeable improvement was to add a screen that has a better display brightness than any smartphone or tablet.
Some new flight modes added to this model like draw mode allows you to draw the lines on the RC display and let P4 Pro fly that route. Another special thing is that after 1 minute of GPS loss aircraft can return to the point where it had a better GPS signal and hover waiting for the pilot’s command.
If we are talking about the camera of this model, it is common with Phantom 4 Pro that it has 20 megapixels, but it doesn’t have an ordinary camera but Zenmuse X4S with almost 12 stops of dynamic range. X5S features Micro 4/3 20.8MP sensor and ability to fit up to 10 different lenses on it including wide angles and zoom lenses. X4S and X5S will most likely be compatible with DJI Osmo too.
Inspire 2 features new image processing called CineCore 2.0 that allows it to process large files faster than ever before. It captures 5.2K video at 4.2 Gbps in RAW and stores it straight to the new, redesigned CineSSD.
About the flight: made of magnesium aluminum and carbon besides being lightweight, it is also very resistant. The top speed of Inspire 2 is 65 MPH or 108 KMH that comes with a dual battery system which allows it to stay in the air for a whopping 27 minutes.
Entirely redesigned the Inspire 2 propulsion system gives the drone a capacity to climb up at the speed of 20ft/second (7m/s) and descend at about 30ft/s (10 m/s). Redundant systems provide reliability for the barometer, electronic speed controller communication, and satellite navigation modules. The slave and master controller range now extends to 328 feet with the option to choose between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies to cut through any radio interference.
DJI is known that always offers a lot of different accessories for their products. The new product is not an exception. With Inspire 2 you will be capable to use the DJI Focus, a battery charging station, DJI CINESSD, CINESSD station and other optional accessories are available. Another bonus is the optional monitor called DJI Crystalsky. It comes in 5.5-inch and 7.85-inch sizes, with the highest brightness up to 1000 cd/m2 and 2000 cd/m2 respectively, and its dedicated system reduces video transmission latency.
The question we have to answer was “Which model we choose?”
We definitely have two very good models, with a lot of qualities and the price that is different, depending on what they have to offer and also the accessories they have.
Our recommendation is divided into two categories, for those who want amazing photos and still have a lower budget, we recommend Phantom 4 Pro. But those who are truly professional and want a different experience, not just the photo shoot, they will choose Inspire 2.
