DJI Inspire 2 repair

Here is the DJI Inspire 2 teardown made by Heydrones. DJI always surprising with the innovations they bring. So currently DJI Inspire 2 is the most advanced drone on a market. Of course, the price of it is not cheap as well, but let’s see what is inside this flying robot.

DJI Inspire 2 teardown

Just take a look at this technological beauty. How many small details is there inside of Inspire 2. When I just started with drones I built a quadcopter that had a frame, flight controller,  four ESCs, four motors, battery and few zip ties. Looking at a number of circuits, cables connectors, coolers and other stuff makes me hard to believe how far has the technology gone in last few years.

Taking off the nose of the aircraft first thing you will see is this tiny compass and barometer.

Disassembling the top cover you can find a GPS module, power button, and up-facing obstacle avoidance system.

Unlike the whole top cover of the Inspire 2, GPS cover is plastic because if it were made of metal alloy, it would block the GPS signal.

Do you recognize the traditional ESC connectors?

This is the “brain” of Inspire 2 drone. It has 2 ports for the data transfer, 2 IMUs and built in Micro SD. The blue thing is not an engineer’s toothpaste, but thermal paste for better cooling and heat reduction.

Cine Core 2.0

Cine Core 2.0 module and video transmitter both require some serious cooling, that is why they both covered by the cooling plates with a good amount of thermal paste on it.

This picture gives us an understanding of how many layers there are in the nose part of this drone. Very space efficient layout.

DJI Inspire 2 power

Complicated power distribution allows the drone fly with one or two batteries and makes the power redundancy possible.

The motor mounts are also made of metal.

We can see very clean and simple design of the connection between motor and ESC.DJI Inspire 2 transformer

And this is exactly what makes Inspire drones so special, the part that allows Inspire 2 transform and raise the landing gear.

DJI Inspire 2 obstacle avoidance

Obstacle avoidance looks very simple and clean. However, what not simple is the algorithm that makes it so powerful.

DJI Inspire 2 bottom

The bottom part of the I2 contains optical flow and sonar positioning modules as well as a front cooler.

Overall impression:

This Inspire 2 teardown post showed that engineers who designed this product have pay attention to the every tiny detail. They were not only trying to make it look good outside but also inside. The build quality of this machine is extremely robust. It is truly amazing to see how much technology is packed into this little piece.
