    Taken from the inspire forum:

    Wanted to pass along some info to fellow dji enthusiasts. Earlier this afternoon we had a conversation with a major distributor for dji products in North America. The distributor stated that dji encountered a major issue with the inspire 1 last minute and are scrambling to resolve the problem. This very reliable source stated that a product manager within the Phantom line of quads revealed that the engineers working on the Inspire 1 lineup found that after shipping test units to testers around the world and gathering data back on these initial flights that there was significant and very VERY ( their words not ours ) worrisome problems with the Zenmuse Gimbal as well as the 4k camera that come attached to the quadcopter. There were also stated to be several significant software issues and again possible issues with the H frame folding and its effect on camera shake.

    What the distributor was most concerned with was that dji is and has not shown transparency with its distributors or its customers regarding these problems. The distributor stated that at the very minimum their next four shipments from dji wont include any new product lines.

    I assume the message you're relaying is from months ago when the Inspire 1 was released correct?
    Do we know what the "worrisome" problems were, now, in hindsight?

    This information would be relevant if it wasn't from last December.
    All you did was copy & paste a post from InspirePilots.
    This is pointless drama your trying to stir up. Closed.
