The DJI Inspire 2 is a popular and powerful drone, and is utilized for many commercial applications, but is lacking in one important area - thermal capability. If you already have an Inspire 2, but need the ability to perform thermal imaging, the solution is the FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit. This upgrade kit offers the closest thing to an integrated thermal imaging system for the Inspire 2. Ideal for applications in law enforcement, firefighting and search and rescue, where many departments already own and operate and Inspire 2, the upgrade kit is a good use of resources when thermal capability needs to be added to the tool belt.
The FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit uses the onboard visual camera (compatible with X4S and X5S), along with FLIR’s Vue Pro thermal imaging camera, and a Samsung Tab A tablet (included in the upgrade kit) to offer a dual thermal-optical view. Drawing from two separate feeds using the DJI Go App and the VUIR HD app, you can see a side-by-side view of thermal and visual imaging. For thermal imaging with the FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit, the Inspire 2 must be operating in 2.4GHz mode, and the downward facing vision sensor must be switched off.
Inspire 2 Flight Features
The DJI Inspire 2 is a fast flyer, smooth and peppy to operate. With rapid flight acceleration to 50 mph in just 4 seconds, and a top flight speed of 58 mph, you can keep pace with most moving objects to capture images or video, or just keep tabs.
The Inspire 2 is built to withstand difficult weather and harsh conditions, so you can fly with confidence that your aircraft and surrounding people and objects will remain safe, and powerful external sensors work to make sure that flights are safe and accurate. These sensors utilize the Inspire 2’s integrated FPV (First Person View) camera, including forward and downward vision systems, and are responsible for detecting potential obstacles up to 30 meters in front. In addition, upward-facing infrared sensors to monitor airspace up to 16 feet overhead, which is especially important when flying indoors, or under foliage or other low-light conditions. These sensors work to help with obstacle avoidance, and also are employed in the case of emergency landings when GPS connection has been lost.
High-quality image and video
The new onboard image processing system of the Inspire 2, the CineCore 2.0, along with a micro four-thirds sensor, ensure that high-resolution sharp images are delivered. With eliminated noise and accurate colors, the Inspire 2 can really deliver when you demand high-quality images. A 2-axis gimbal stabilizer keeps the camera steady for blur-free photos and images, even while flying at high speeds. When paired with the FLIR Touch HD Upgrade Kit, both your visual images (from the visual feed) and your thermal images (from the FLIR Vue Pro) are sure to be top-notch, clear and reliable data you can depend on.
A plentiful array of intelligent flight modes make the Inspire 2 a user-friendly drone, ready to fly and get the job done, giving you the freedom and flexibility to focus on achieving your mission. Here are some of the smart ways the Inspire 2 can help you get the data you need.
Spotlight Pro. The Spotlight Pro Mode uses visual-tracking algorithms to track and follow any moving subject. When engaged, the aircraft will lock onto the object indicated, and fly in any complex pattern required to maintain sight. Blind spots are not an issue either, as the aircraft itself will rotate in flight to maintain contact, even when the gimbal has reached the end of its rotation limit. Two sub-modes here offer even greater pilot control: Quick Mode - just like the name suggests, simply needs a subject selected and tracking begins; or Composition Mode - where both a subject and a tracking start position are selected. When the moving object reaches the selected position, tracking begins.
TapFly. In TapFly Mode, a separate flight view view FPV enables the pilot to choose and change flight direction with just a few tap commands on the controller screen (while in FPV flight view). This option provides greater freedom while flying to focus on gimbal and camera controls, rather than having to focus on flight commands.
ActiveTrack. The unique DJI ActiveTrack Mode is integrated into the Inspire 2, and allows pilots to precisely and automatically track a range of objects, including animals and vehicles. Different customized tracking profiles can be saved for future flights, saving you time in selecting and programming exactly which tracking methods to use in different situations.
Return to Home. During each flight, the aircraft creates and records and real-time map of its flight route, using the aircraft’s built-in forward and downward vision sensors. In the case of a lost video transmission system signal (where the pilot cannot see where the aircraft is flying), selecting the Return to Home Mode will direct the drone to automatically return to its point of origin, making use of the devised map. In its return flight, the aircraft will use its onboard sensors to detect and avoid obstacles up to 200 meters in front. When and if a video transmission signal is regained, the drone will resume flying in a straight line for the pilot to pick up manual control.
Broadcast Mode. In order to perform live broadcasts of the Inspire 2’s video feed, you simply need to connect the aircraft’s transmitter to a satellite truck. This allows you to broadcast the live aerial feed directly to televisions using its 1080i50 and 720p60 operation signal. When news reporting is required, you can be assured of real-time, high-quality videos directly from the air.
