    X5R in 2020 [upgrading from X3]

    Over the past month or so i was considering purchasing an X5R. I currently have an X3 on the I1 But want to know if its still worth the upgrade. Ive looked into buying an I2 and the fact it costs 10X as much has put me off dramatically. Ive found X5R's going for around $1500 some higher some...

    Need "Computer Whiz" to find hidden X5R files

    We really NEED to have someone find the hidden SSD file folder of DNG files so we can do a quick transfer in the field of our raw files so we can continue flying and filming. Once we get the files then later in the edit room we can use the painfully slow DJI Cinelight app to extract them...

    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...
