Leaked DJI Inspire 3 photos show a crashed prototype drone

Check out these leaked photos of the DJI Inspire 3. As you can see, the drone is severely damaged with a broken leg, making it officially a news story for the category “Breaking News,” as OsitaLV quipped.

The photos of the damaged prototype drone were first leaked by DealsDrone and later shared by OsitaLV.

While these photos show a damaged drone, they are still significant as they are the first actual proof of a Inspire 3 drone in development and testing.

Based on the images, it appears that this is a new Inspire model. However, the old carbon-fiber arm construction has remained.

It appears that the new DJI Inspire 3 will be built on an H-shaped frame with retractable landing gear like its predecessor.

The foldable propellers are new. A new sensor for locating the drone beneath its wings has also been added.

Sadly, the location of the drone is unknown. It’s possible that it was a test model of the drone that crashed in a Chinese city, after which the finder captured photographs.

Unfortunately, the camera module was destroyed in the accident. However, it’s possible that the Inspire 3 can be used with Zenmuse X9 technology, which DJI first unveiled late last year with the Ronin 4D gimbal.

A full-frame camera with which 8K 50 fps ProRes RAW video is now possible.

Earlier rumors from DealsDrone indicate that the DJI Inspire 3 might hit the market in September of this year.

This might well make sense because the DJI Inspire 2 was officially discontinued in February of this year.
