After many leaks, teasers, and spy shots, DJI have announced Inspire; it's new multirotor camera platform.
Inspire is a quad-rotor platform with a very clever transforming design that keeps the camera up high when in it's landing configuration and then lowers it once in the air. This removes the need for heavy retracts while allowing the camera to have a full 360 degree field of view without props or landing legs in the shots.
This new product appears to mark a melding of DJI's professional and consumer grade products and brings together many technologies pioneered on earlier drone. The video link is based on Lightbridge and the motors appear to be the powerful 4114 items as seen on the S800, S900 and S1000.
The camera is DJI's own design and can shoot 4k video at 24/30fps as well as taking 12MP stills. It's attached to a 360 degree 3-axis, brushless gimbal. The design is modular and according to DJI can be replaced with a different item in the future.
DJI have also added downward-facing, stereoscopic cameras and sonar. This enables the airframe to track the ground in a similar way to how an optical mouse works as well as measure altitude with preceision. The upshot of this is that the craft can maintain altitude and position without a full GPS lock. This is extremely important as it means that Inspire can be flown indoors.
According to DJI, the power unit is 6S which makes sense if the motors are what we think they are.
We've pre-ordered one from our friends at http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk and will give you our thoughts once it arrives. No ETA for shipments as yet but expect demand to be extremely high.
