    Were you doing a wheelie at the time?
    The Inspire will not launch from a motorcycle with one wheel on the ground as the 'mono cycle failsafe' kicks in and prevents launch.

    I was trying to,but the anti flip over button was on the fritz. .
    you would think that when you pay 3000 bucks on a product it would work??
    I'm suing dji for not living up to my un real expectations. .
    All I want is to be able to use my inspire anywhere and anytime I feel the need to show off..
    Did I mention I won't launch of my snowmobile either! !
    I'm so pissed I could , well, piss myself. .
    boy wait till I get off of hold with dji!! I'm going call back and wait on hold some more I'm so mad... see how they like that...
    I think ill sell my motorcycle too and buy a harley..
    man can't dji just get it wrong some more so I can hate..
    there's not nearly enough to complain about these days..
    what's the world coming to??

    I heard DJI is working on it it will b some super magnets stick right to your metal helmet you will have to buy. I am not having much luck launching from my ridding lawn mower ran two over. You really wld have thought this DJI company wld have thought this through

    Auto-takeoff works, just set the delay, just like your camera … don't wheelie or Inspire might launch sideways and crash

    I bought mine to film aerial footage of buildings collapsing during earthquakes. Don't tell me this goddamned thing won't take off if the ground beneath my feet is shaking like crazy. DJI man, they really need to start thinking smarter.

    The other thing that REALLY got to me after I bought the Inspire is it just refuses to take off from under water like at the bottom of a swimming pool.
    I wanted footage from beneath the waters surface to raising to over 36.000 feet and they go and put in a 500m limit as well :mad:

    I have to say that I am severely disappointed that there is no active bird deterent system on these things! We're up there being all awesome and stuff...birds be hatin' and want to get all up in my business. Sure...if you get it right you can give them a hell of a hair cut...but is it too much to ask for a gyro stabilized turretted BB gun or something?

    I tried it after the new firmware and had a drive away. I blame DJI. I was driving with my wheel locks and everything. Come on !!!!
