lot of inspire owners hating the new phantom 3. im not sure why, this fear of the inspire being de-valued to zero because the p3 does a lot of the same things is un-warranted. i think the people who have the most to lose are the ones who bought a second remote and that highly over priced go-professional hard case. that's over 1000 bucks. a premium everyone pays for something new. i1's wont devalue much more till the i2 comes out next year heeh. ebay and amazon's free market are still valuing the inspire at 2500 bucks, you can get a inspire, 2 remotes and the hard case for 3000 give or take 100. at the time of this post there are 2 right now. DJI is doing something i see in video games a lot now days. it's milking consumers for the same product as much as possible. basically everyone wants easy control over the camera and drone SOLO and DJI's flawd design has made it very difficult or nearly impossible to do well unless a second person is flying the camera, that costs more money. if you have to have it NOW, prepare to suck it up. here is a time line -inspire with no autonomous features and a over price second controller solution -P3 launches with the features the inspire doesn't have but should.(intentionally) -release inspire firmware updates unlocking more of it's potential slowly making the second transmitter obsolete and the P3 along with it. -internet gets flooded with used inspire transmitters and tablets and p3's. DJI is relying on a consumer's impatience to double and triple dip into your wallet. they are purposefully withholding software so the only solution is to buy their way over priced hardware like the phantom 3 or more transmitters to get the results you want. i and everyone else pretty much wants to fly our I1's solo. autonomous ground stations features will make it possible to film and fly at the same time easily with 1 pilot. DJI knows this. if the inspire could do this now the P3 would be pointless no one would buy it. but the p3 can do it and the inspire cant.. so people will buy the p3 cursing dji's name as they do it looking at their 4000+ dollar inspire with regret. there are 2 ways this scenario plays out and both are in favor of inspire 1 equipment getting way cheaper. and it's why i like the p3 being out in the market. -DJI makes the p3 superior to the I1. everyone switches to the p3 thus inspire making batteries and parts cheaper because the internet is loaded with people dumping them. owning a I1 overall is cheaper. buying a second remote for 100 bucks and TB48's for 50.00 becomes the norm. OR -DJI releases the ground station update and we all finally get the I1 as advertised. those who bought the p3 say WTF for the 3rd time and the rest of us who waited are happy campers. the way you avoid being taken to the cleaners with your money by DJI is being patient. the firmware inspire update will come out eventually giving us POI object tracking waypoints the whole thing. if DJI doesn't someone else will hack it if they haven't already. i can fly and film moving objects like cars or people in skate parks solo now but it's tricky, way harder then it should be. and this is by design. once you can program a mission the person will be able to focus on the the camera 100% eliminating the need for a second person transmitter tablet or phantom 3. i have a 10 day car race im filming in the end of june.. the ground station better be out by then or i'll be bummed.
