So you’ve been shopping around for a new drone, and no matter what else you’ve
found, you keep coming back to the DJI Inspire 1. Who could blame you? You’ve done
your homework and are now wondering, “Do I want a single remote or dual remote
DJI Inspire 1 – Single Remote
The single remote setup for the DJI Inspire 1 is cut and dry. It is by far one of the most
powerful, comprehensive, yet easy to use remotes to date. It has dedicated buttons for
video and photo capturing. Like most drones, having all of the buttons on one remote
can be confusing at first and will require some getting used to. Obviously, if you do not
have someone to frequently fly with you, the single remote setup is going to make the
most sense, regardless.
DJI Inspire 1 – Dual Remote
If you are looking to have more control over your drone, and need it to respond quickly
and accurately, then adding a second pilot through the dual remote setup is exactly
what you need. One pilot operates the drone itself while the second control the camera
functions, including rotating the gimbal. This feature is great for families who are looking
to have a little drone time together or businesses who are currently using drones for
aerial services and want to take their game to the next level.
DroneFly.com recommends that if you are interested in starting to purchase the single
remote style, you can always purchase a second remote down the line. Both the single
setup and dual setup have a place in the market, and each user is going to have to
evaluate how the drone is going to be used, and by whom, to decide which setup is right
for them. Either way, you’re going to have a blast piloting this bad boy.
