    After a fairly decent crash, the Inspire within moments burst into flames. Pretty much kept on burning too, even though it had sand dumped on it. Pretty much just burnt into a big messy blob.

    Has anyone else experienced such a thing? I can find no trace of it anywhere online. Can only imagine if the inspire had crashed onto a house.... the damage would have been far greater.

    Hey pre -future...
    That's a first!!
    Would like to see the video of the melt down..
    I'm guessing there was some kind of short circuit that caused it to catch on fire..
    Thanks for the post!!

    I noticed in an accident the first thing that pops out is the battery i think it is a built in safety mechanism...to prevent just such a predicament

    Sorry for your loss!! Often thought what if you can't prove what happened and it legitimently lost a craft due to fire or explosion?? DAMN GOOD QUESTION? Hopefully all is taken care of and a speedy recovery of a new AC.. Sounds like the fuselage/Battery or worn wire shorted. Too many variables, but definitely NOT GOOD!! Please keep us POSTED!

    Please provide some more details.

    Have you contacted/spoken to DJI about the incident?
