    X5S with Olympus 14-42mm II - Issues?

    I recently outfitted my I2 with the X5S and am using the Olympus series lenses. Been having the following issues... Using the 17mm fixed Olympus (DJI listed compatible) lens, the X5S gimble motors would sound like they were still working after initialization for about 3-5 seconds, then stop...

    Livestream Matrice 210

    What are some options to livestream from a Matrice? Unlike all the other dji products there’s no live-streaming option from the app.

    USA Where are the New Drone Business Opportunities?

    The new drone business and autonomous vehicles business opportunities may not be in the vehicle itself. The marketplace for commercial drones is starting to become a red ocean and that makes it more and more difficult to come up with a product that stands out (apart from unfortunate hoaxes, like...

    Drone Photogprahy: Night Cityscape Tutorial

    Shooting the city landscape at night can provide some real challenges. Vibrations of drone, exposure setting and the tiniest of movements can make or break a good shot. Therefore, it is always a good idea to see what basics you may be missing as well as explore what type of angles work best when...

    Crashed our Inspire X5R

    Hi gang, I thought it might be helpful to post this. We were flying Oregon dunes filming a model on motorcycle. My pilot had the cycle turn abruptly and in staying away from the rider we ditched it into the dunes. We were clipping along pretty good when it hit some pretty hard sand. When we...

    X5 Auto Exposure Flickering

    Just bought the Inspire Pro from Drones Plus Silicon Valley after owning and loving 2-P3P's and a P2V+. Great bird to fly, but I was disappointed with the Auto Exposure mode on the X5. It doesn't have a smooth transition when the exposure changes. It jumps, almost flickers. We did some tests...

    Matrice 100 Guidance Performance

    Guys, I was just about to go ahead and put in a purchase order for the Matrice 100 Guidance. I'm trying to do some indoor imaging where I'd prefer to have the stereoscopic/ultrasonic sensors around so I don't hit a wall or anything. Has anyone purchased Guidance yet? What's been your experience...
