Today’s show is about the DJI Inspire 1. Topics discussed today include the DJI Inspire 1, Inspire 1 vs. Inspire, and the DJI Inspire 3.
Our caller for today, Marshall went ahead and purchased the DJI Inspire 1 for his drone business. And, now he needs help finding a reliable, affordable vendor who can sell drone batteries for this outdated DJI drone.
Sure, we help Marshall out by sharing some great vendor recommendations. But we do much more than that.
On today’s show, we explain the pros and cons of the DJI Inspire 1. Even though this is a much older drone, Paul shares why it flies far more aggressively than its successor, the DJI Inspire 2. And why he still considers this old DJI drone to be the “Ferrari of DJI drones”.
But does it mean that the DJI Inspire 1 is still a good buy? Can you build a sustainable business with the DJI Inspire 1?
We also share the latest industry rumors about the DJI Inspire 3. We speculate about the specs and share whether we can expect DJI to launch this new drone in 2021. Towards the end, we have an interesting discussion on consumer vs. enterprise drones. And share why enterprise drones are waning in popularity.
Thanks for the great question, Marshall. Fly Safe!
