Key takeaways from the leaked DJI Inspire 1 video

UPDATE: Before I had a chance to publish, that video was taken private. 

So the secret is fully out. The major release by DJI in 5 hours will be this drone. 

Regardless of this, I'll be watching the live webcast. It's here.

The leaked video:

This footage was not uploaded by me, so it might disappear quickly. 

It shows a drone that appears to be even better at photography, since the legs appear to elevate once it's in the air. As demonstrated 6:55 into the video: 

Secondly, it appears that the camera is propriatory, and it does not appear to possible to mount those sweet Gopro 4Ks. Most likely there will be two different models, one with the stock camera, one with no gimbal and no camera. 

It appears that the communication system has been updated. I've never seen anyone use an iPad, and it appears to be connected with a wire. 

Anything to make it easier to set up this thing, I'm in support of. 

Lastly, I think it's a bit bigger than the Phantom 2, which means more weight, more stability. 

It looks excellent. Hopefully it's priced like the Phantom. But likely it's priced a bit higher.
