DIY Inspire 1 Quadcopter

The DJI Inspire 1 has proven time and time again why it is a serious contender in the mid to top tier level of aerial video and photography drones. It is truly an amazing piece of technology and a testament to the R&D team at DJI.


Unfortunately, the price tag is fair. At around $2000.00USD, these are a little hard to acquire on a modest budget. That was, at least, until an awesome guy named CdRsKuLL painstakingly modeled and engineered is own DIY version of the Inspire 1. After all the time it took him to design everything, he releases the files completely free on his website and on Thingiverse. It’s people like this that make me proud to be a part of the 3D Printing community.
