There are plenty of drones out there that are packed with innovative technologies, but few of them can actually hold a candle to the DJI Inspire 1 video drone. That’s because this little gadget was designed to be as versatile as possible to the point where it can actually transform mid-air. To clarify, since we’re talking about a drone that can shoot 4k videos, it makes sense that the captured footage would need be completely unobstructed.
The legs that the drone uses for support while on the ground might get in the way of capturing a clean 360-degree video, and so the gadget is able to fold those legs after taking off thanks to a clever design feature. Boasting a price tag of $2,800, the DJI Inspire 1 drone is not exactly the cheapest, but it does come with a few unique perks such as One Touch Takeoff and a Dynamic Home system that ultimately make the price worth paying.
Dynamic Home allows the user to set a flying path as well as a return route that the drone will follow to the letter. A feature called Lightbox can be added for another $1,400 and enables the transmission of 1080p videos from a maximum distance of one mile.
