The DJI Inspire1 is delivered pre-assembled to 99% and it is ready to fly quadcopter, however some things have to be done and properly prepare before your first take off:
1. Charge batteries – Charger comes with two outlets, one for the remote controller and one for the flight battery. It is important to charge them separately not both at same time, so start with charging the controller. LED charging status indicators will start blinking during this process and stop blinking when charging if finished.
The DJI Inspire1 comes with two different batteries, TB47 4500mAh and second one with 5700 mAh they both charge in the exactly same way. At the top of the battery there are four LED lights indicators and the button so if you press this button you will see how the battery is charged now. It has two connectors for battery charger outlet, remove the cap and connect it with TB47 battery. Charging process is exactly the same like for controller.
2. Preparing the gimbal – On the top of the gimbal there is a connectors protection cap which needs to be removed first. Unlock the cap from Inspire1 by turning the it in right side to and connect the gimbal in the holder then turn the lever in the left side.
3. Insire1 software update – It is important to update firmware update of your Inspire1 before taking your first flight. Take out the microSD card from camera and plug it inside of your computer (you will need microSD adapter for that). Go to DJI Homepage and download latest zip firmware from the website. Unzip the firmware file and copy the bin file in the root directory of the microSD card and USB stick which is needed to update the controller. Insert the microSD card inside Inspire1 and turn it on, connect the smart device with the controller (iPhone, Android) and start the DJI Pilot app and firmware will start upgrading the software.
The whole updating process takes around 20 minutes you will see that lights are flashing, it’s important to not touch anything during this process to avoid any damage.
4. Controller software update – Put the USB stick in and turn on the controller on, you will see blue flashing light which means that software update is running and this process takes around 3 minutes.
