DJI Inspire 3 Drone Combo

£11,182.50 (+VAT)


Master the Unseen

The Long awaited replacement for the Inspire 2 is now here! World-class Aerial Footage, Exceptional Video quality. 94KMPH Horizontal speed, Dual TB51 intelligent batteries provide up to 28 Mins of flight time and support for fast charging and hot swapping. At the peak of aerial cinematography, DJI Inspire 3 offers unprecedented workflow efficiency, camera language, and creative freedom. This all-in-one 8K camera drone empowers professional-level filmmakers to fully maximize the potential of any shot and master the unseen.


Sleek, Integrated Design

Inspire 3 is a professional camera drone that adopts a fluid new design that takes aerodynamics fully into consideration to reduce air resistance.

The max dive speed has increased from the 9 m/s of Inspire 2 to 10 m/s, while the vertical ascend/descend speed has increased from 6 m/s and 4 m/s to 8 m/s.

Powerful manoeuvrability delivers responsive, accurate control and an extended flight time of up to 28 minutes.

The FPV camera, visual sensors, positioning antennas, and storage card slot all adopt designs that are seamlessly integrated into the airframe for a minimalist look and modern industrial aesthetics.

Inheriting the classic transformable configuration of the Inspire series, Inspire 3 uses an all-new design that supports 360° Pan and Tilt Boost structures. When the landing gear is lowered, the gimbal supports obstruction-free 80° upward-angle shooting, enabling cinematographers to capture strikingly innovative shots.

From the outer design to the internal structure, every detail of Inspire 3 was carefully considered and optimized.


Centimeter-Level RTK Positioning

Inspire 3 integrates high-precision RTK positioning technology used in industries such as architecture and surveying to deliver centimetre-level accuracy. Compared with traditional meter-level positioning supported by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), RTK not only makes flying more stable but also makes flight-route planning more accurate, significantly improving creative efficiency.

RTK antennas have been built into the airframe with a new stacked ceramic design, which enables three types of GNSS (GPS, BeiDou, and Galileo) and delivers dual-frequency positioning down to the centimetre level. By activating an RTK network or setting up a D-RTK 2 Mobile Station, users can achieve highly accurate positioning without mounting any additional modules.


Dual-Antenna Orientation

Both the front and the rear of Inspire 3 have a built-in stacked ceramic antenna, providing powerful anti-magnetic-interference capability to further improve flight accuracy and safety.


Waypoint Pro

Specially designed for aerial cinematography, Waypoint Pro enables flight-route and shot planning with a wide range of customized settings. With the new Repeatable Routes and 3D Dolly modes, an innovative automated shooting experience can be easily achieved. In addition, RTK centimetre-level positioning ensures more accurate flight-route planning and execution. Whether solo shooting or in a professional crew, use Waypoint Pro to master even highly-complex scenes.


Repeatable Routes

Using Repeatable Routes, the aircraft will automatically fly on the same route and maintain all preset parameters such as altitude, speed, gimbal angle, and camera settings. Repeating the same flight mission allows cinematographers to effortlessly perform difficult one-takes, or to fly at different times in the same place to easily create long-duration time lapses that capture transitions such as day to night or season to season.


3D Dolly

3D Dolly can simulate a crane, cable cam, or dolly on film sets while going far beyond the limitations of those devices.

After planning a flight route, the cinematographer can manually control the aircraft to move along the route back and forth while adjusting parameters such as speed, gimbal angle, and more according to the needs of the shot. This makes complicated cinema-grade camera movements easier and more efficient and can deliver improved visual effects.


Spotlight Pro

Upgraded from Inspire 2, Spotlight Pro further enables solo creators with more shot possibilities. Based on powerful machine-learning algorithms, Inspire 3 supports automated subject recognition and locking for people, vehicles, and boats with greater accuracy than its predecessor.

When using Spotlight Pro’s Follow mode, the aircraft and gimbal camera orient toward the same direction and remain locked on the subject so that the pilot can get circling shots without manual framing adjustments.

In Free mode, thanks to the 360° gimbal pan of Inspire 3, the gimbal camera can stay locked on a subject, while a solo pilot uses the FPV camera to check their surroundings and control the flight route more responsively to achieve complex camera movements more easily.


Omnidirectional Sensing System

Inspire 3 is equipped with nine sensors, which enable a robust omnidirectional sensing system that can detect obstacles in all directions and provide comprehensive protection for flying.

For the first time, a fisheye camera has been added to each of the four landing arms. This design helps to avoid obstruction from the airframe when the landing gear is raised and allows for horizontal obstacle sensing when the landing gear is lowered.


Customizable Obstacle Sensing

In addition, Inspire 3 features a new customizable function to help ensure greater flight safety and more creative freedom. Horizontal, upward, and downward obstacle sensing can be enabled or disabled independently, and an obstacle alert range can be manually set to suit different scenarios.

When active avoidance is turned off, users can still view the distance from an obstacle on the navigation display in real time and receive an audio alert when an obstacle is within a set range without the aircraft performing an automatic avoidance movement. This brings new possibilities to professional aerial teams that want to achieve more complex camera language.


Ultra-Wide Night-Vision FPV Camera

Inspire 3 is equipped with a new 1/1.8-inch-sensor FPV camera with a 3?m pixel size, an ultra-wide DFOV of 161°, and the ability to transmit live feeds at up to 1080p/60fps. Compared to its predecessor, the DFOV is approximately doubled. This FPV camera delivers more impressive light-sensing capability, allowing pilots to observe their surroundings vividly and clearly, even at night, and ensure greater levels of flight safety.


Tailormade 8K Sensor

DJI’s lightest-ever full-frame three-axis gimbal camera, the X9-8K Air, is custom-built for Inspire 3 to take drone cinematography to the next level. It features DJI’s latest image processing system, CineCore 3.0, supporting internal recording of up to 8K/25fps CinemaDNG video as well as 8K/75fps Apple ProRes RAW video, meeting the needs of top-class film and television productions.

8K means ultra-high-resolution aerial footage that retains true-to-life texture close to what the human eye sees, with clarity that stuns audiences when displayed on larger screens. RAW brings X9-8K Air’s sensor fully into play, providing abundant space for visual effects and colour grading.

In S&Q mode, X9-8K Air supports internal recording of up to full-frame 4K/120fps ProRes RAW video without cropping, providing more creative editing options.


Dual Native ISO

X9-8K Air supports dual native ISO. At full-frame 30fps and below, it offers EI 800/4000, supporting the 24fps commonly seen in film productions and the 25fps used in commercial and television productions. At above 30fps, EI 320/1600 is available.

This allows X9-8K Air to record images with exquisite details and minimal noise, even low-light cityscapes or beaches, putting it on par with professional ground-based cinema cameras.


14+ Stops of Dynamic Range

X9-8K Air covers 14+ stops of dynamic range, which captures rich highlight and shadow details in complex lighting scenarios like sunrises and sunsets. The high dynamic range brings more possibilities for post-editing, retaining genuine colours even after significant exposure adjustments.


DL Mount Lenses

Inheriting DJI’s proprietary DL mount, X9-8K Air is compatible with an additional 18 mm F2.8 full-frame ultra-wide lens and a new telephoto lens (will be released at a later date) on top of the previous full-frame lens selections of DL 24/35/50 mm F2.8. All five lenses are custom-made for aerial cinematography. The housings are made of lightweight, monocoque carbon fibre, so the lightest lens weighs just 178 g, meeting Inspire 3’s requirement for ultra-high manoeuvrability.


DJI Cinema Color System (DCCS)

Building on DJI’s mature colour science and technology, the DJI Cinema Color System allows the X9-8K Air to retain authentic colours that redefine the look of aerial cinematography. This applies to natural settings and urban landscapes, and also accurately captures skin tones in different environments and lighting conditions. DCCS ensures effortless colour matching between X9-8K Air and ground-based cinema cameras such as DJI Ronin 4D, delivering consistent colour style from air to ground to meet the needs of film-production post-editing workflows.


Multi-Camera Timecode Sync

Through the 3.5mm port on the aircraft, you can sync the timecode between equipment in the air and on the ground. When dealing with abundant footage from multiple cameras, timecode sync makes the editing process significantly more simplified and efficient.


DJI RC Plus

Inspire 3 comes with a professional-level remote controller, the DJI RC Plus, which has a built-in 7-inch 1,200-nit high-bright screen to provide an extraordinary outdoor monitoring experience. It also features an HDMI out port, along with several buttons and dials on the front, back, and top, which enable fast and intuitive operation. Button functions can also be customized to fit users’ habits and deliver a more smooth operating experience.

The built-in battery of RC Plus provides an operating time of approximately 3.3 hours, and extends to 6 hours with an external WB37 battery. It also supports battery hot-swapping to improve creative efficiency.

On top of the classic flight control interface, the new DJI Pilot 2 app for Inspire adds a cinema-grade monitoring interface, which allows simple and convenient checking of information like camera exposure, video specifications, focal length, and gimbal angle, easily meeting the monitoring requirements of gimbal operators and DPs.

Professional accessories such as a strap and waist support are also included for more comfortable and efficient long-duration use.


Cinema-Grade O3 Pro Video Transmission

Inspire 3 is equipped with O3 Pro, DJI’s latest cinema-grade video transmission system, which enables a max transmission distance of 15 km in single-control mode and 12 km in dual-control mode. Both the gimbal camera and FPV camera support 1080p/60fps live feeds and an ultra-low latency of 90 ms. Compared to the Lightbridge video transmission system of Inspire 2, O3 Pro has taken a generational leap in transmission distance, latency, and overall stability.

For the first time, 4K/30fps live feeds are also supported with a max 5km transmission distance to meet the needs of UHD monitoring and live streaming on set.


Independent Links for Dual Control

Compared with its predecessor, the dual-control experience of Inspire 3 has been significantly upgraded. Two remote controllers can receive live feeds and control the drone independently, so the pilot and gimbal operator can be at different positions on set. This breaks Inspire 2’s limitations of binding the primary and secondary control links.

If the pilot loses the aircraft signal, the gimbal operator is now able to take control of the aircraft to safely return to home or land directly.


Supports DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor

In addition to RC Plus, Inspire 3 also allows the use of the DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor as a second remote controller. The remote monitor can pair directly with Inspire 3 to receive live feeds, and can even control the gimbal and focus when the Ronin 4D Hand Grips are attached. HDMI and SDI ports on the remote monitor can also output live feeds to other monitoring devices.


Supports DJI Three-Channel Follow Focus

As a member of the DJI PRO ecosystem, the new DJI Three-Channel Follow Focus can transmit control signals to Inspire 3 via the O3 Pro transmission system (this requires a DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor to act as an intermediary device). With Three-Channel Follow Focus, the focus puller can achieve accurate remote focus control and stepless aperture adjustments to deliver an integrated wireless monitoring and control experience.


Supports DJI Master Wheels

When a DJI High-Bright Remote Monitor is paired as the second controller (as the intermediary to the PRO ecosystem), Inspire 3’s gimbal can be controlled using DJI Master Wheels. In this way, it can provide a gimbal control experience on par with Ronin 2 to meet the operating habits of cinematographers.


Supports DJI Transmission

With DJI Transmission, Inspire 3 supports expanded monitoring on set. Connect an RC Plus to a DJI Video Transmitter with Broadcast mode enabled. Then, live feeds can be transmitted to an unlimited number of remote monitors, further improving coordination efficiency.


Dual-Battery System

Inspire 3 is equipped with a new TB51 dual-battery system, which utilizes the latest battery chemistry technology for optimized reliability and performance.

TB51 batteries are smaller, lighter, more streamlined, and have higher voltage compared to TB50. They provide a 28-minute max flight time and support hot swapping with a redesigned battery release that allows effortless continuous operation.

If the temperature of the battery goes lower than 18° C (64° F), the battery will trigger an auto-heating function, maintaining adequate flight performance even in locations with temperatures as low as -20° C (-4° F).


New Battery Charging Hub

The all-new foldable battery charging hub strikes the optimum balance between charging efficiency and storage size. It can accommodate eight batteries. In Fast mode, it can charge two batteries to 90% in just 35 minutes and eight batteries to 100% in only 160 minutes. The included 65W USB-C port can also be used to charge an RC Plus.


DJI PROSSD 1TB Included

The included DJI PROSSD 1TB supports a max read speed of 900Mbps and the footage can be read on a computer directly through the provided USB-C to USB-C cable without the need for a card reader.
