    Hello everyone, I am selling my DJI Inspire 1 Pro package complete with the Zenmuse X5 camera, 7 TB47 batteries, fast + quad battery charger, 2 controllers, ND filter sets with cases, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f1.8 lens, DJI focus wheel 1, professional hard case, tablet sun-hood, spare props, and cables. The Inspire 1 drone was recently serviced by DJI. This drone is a true workhorse and this package is built for professional Part 107 work. The used value of this package is $5,885 and I'm asking $4,000. Or, make me an offer! Happy flying.

    Its hard not to rant abut this sort if thing because quite frankly, it sucks. Truth has nothing to do with what's happening to the hobbyists and the commercial sUAV market. On a side note before I start my rant, the lack of understanding at the AMA that the fate of these two constituents are inextricably linked is mind numbing. It doesn't matter about the things that @Spitfire76 pointed out, the safety record, history or that the AMA is a CBO. It also doesn't matter than there have been no deaths attributed to commercial UAV use, there has been only one confirmed midair collision with minor damage, or that when you consider the "estimated" number of commercial drones flying that this is probably one of the safest professions. The truth is always the first casualty in politics. What this is, wait, let me adjust my tin hat, is the end of hobbyists RC and sUAS commercial operations. And the thing that people just refuse to believe is how complicit the AMA, DJI, AirMap, and many others are in the demise of this market segment. In their feeble attempts to protect their members "rights" the AMA shot us all in the left foot. The anemic response by commercial operators shot all of us in the right foot and the along with the manufacturers trying to regulated out the competition the FAA is about to shoot us in the head. This has all been self inflicted.
