Hi all,

I have been offered a DJI Inspire 1 Pro and Inspire 1 RAW for a what seems like a very good price (£350 with 3 batteries and 2 controllers). I was wondering - is this still worth getting. It almost seems like it is equaled or even bettered in some areas by a mini 2 (the other drone I am thinking of getting).

I have taken the test and got my flyer ID - but as far as I can tell I will need to CofC if I want to fly it anywhere but out i the wilds - is that right?

Also - while I have your attention - what is the position on flying durring lock down. Would it count as your daily exersice (I guess lugging an inspire would certainly make that the case).

No
their are no spares for it, no batteries and no support, plus they are massive to cart round.

That said, for £350 once you get bored of it you could still sell it on and make a small profit,

Yes without the CofC you can still fly in the middle of nowhere.

And NO the police will have the right to issue a fine ( not that they are legal in anyway) if you are caught flying as its not exercise, that said find somewhere out of the way and their will be little chance of the filth turning up

These drones aren't even comparable. If you're thinking the Mini 2 might be a good fit for you, then an Inspire is probably not something you want.

FWIW, just the case for my Inspire 1 cost $30 more than a Mini 2.

Hi all

I had a talk with the seller and while it is in excellent condition it has not been flown for 2 years. This tells me the 3 batteries are most likely dead. Given how expensive and how hard they are to get hold of I have decided to pass.

I do realize it seems like a huge gulf between a Mini2 and an inspire... very true. I was just talking to a friend about getting a mini when they told me about this one. I have seen inspires and always lusted after one. However when reality hit I realise it's not for me :).

Thanks for all the advice.
