The flight control system built into the Inspire 1 makes flying as easy and intuitive as possible. All components intelligently
communicate with each other, giving you smooth, stable flight starting from the first time you takeoff.
This is the “brain” of the entire system, receiving thousands of bits of data every second and translating that data into action as you fly. The Main Controller tells every part of your Inspire 1 what to do, calculates environmental conditions in real-time, and ensures that the aircraft responds to your control commands instantly.
As it flies, the position of your Inspire 1 is constantly updated and recorded using a high-strength, intelligent GLONASS + GPS system. This dual positioning system enables higher precision and quicker satellite acquisition, allowing you to see where the aircraft is on a live map and giving it a point to hover at when you release the controls. In additional to traditional GPS, GLONASS offers an even greater level of precision by providing even more satellites. The Inspire 1 even remembers its takeoff point and dynamically tracks your current position, so you can bring your Inspire 1 back to you at the press of a button.
Automatically keeping the Inspire 1 stable and steady during flight only looks easy, as DJI’s advanced Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) handles everything. The IMU incorporates both a 6-axis gyroscope and an accelerometer to monitor miniscule changes in tilt and movement. This allows the aircraft to compensate and adjust immediately, holding its position at all times.
