I'm starting to wonder... Based on all the posts depicting flyaways, crashes , bricking and other horrors, it may seem so. Still, I can't believe that the quality control at DJIs factory is so bad that their products turn out to be so unreliable and predictable! I myself must admit that I've had no problems so far. I always upgrade when there's a new version of the firmware available. There's never been any problems upgrading the AC, RC or the battery. And no problems when flying afterwards. I changed to the new quick release propellers and they work exactly as described. Easy to put on and take off and securily fastened to the motors. So, I am getting a little tired of seeing all the "threads of doom" in this forum. Not that I don't sympathise with those who are unlucky, but what are the reasons for posting? Are they looking for sympathy, advice on how to fix their problems or just plain angry at DJI and wanting to spread the word and warn others? And whenever someone posts something positive, the doomsday predictions are not far away. Again, I don't think that the negative threads is showing the whole picture. I am convinced that there are a majority out there who are very happy with their Inspire 1s but they tend to disappear in favor of those few that are having serious problems. And there must be a lot of those problems that are a result of unnecessary modifications, attempts to exceed the limits of speed, height and distance, even if they won't admit it. Let's hope that the aura of negativity will subside in time and change into an atmosphere of constructive advice and exciting stories! And please, no predictions of doom in this thread. There are enough threads that takes care of that!
