This is not a sponsored video let’s get started released in the spring of 2021. The dji fpv marks the company’s first fpv, drone, fpv or first person view is a quickly growing trend across the industry, and one that’s been on the up and coming over the recent years and with this release, the chinese tech giant hops into the party with its First, foray dji is a long standing highly rated manufacturer in the drone space known for its reliability, quality and safety features and their products have opened the world of aerial imaging to creators, not brave enough to embark on helicopter flights. But this release brings the company into new territories and they’re doing so betting on making fpv more simple, practical and accessible. Technically, the dji fpv sits between the mavic 2 pro and the higher end phantom 4 series drones, but rather than tuning it towards aerial imaging like these drones. This drone is focused strictly on the flying experience and it’s built for speed, performance and utmost agility, and it does so with a fully immersive experience perfect for those who enjoy the thrill of piloting first hand on paper. It offers several highlight points, namely it has a class leading battery range, superior video transmission technology, outstanding speed and the convenience of a ready to fly system, but the fb community is filled with hardcore loyalists, who praise power, low, latency and responsiveness, not to mention a crowd. Who’S accustomed to the headaches involved with making custom self built drones themselves.
So how does dji’s high end offering compare to equivalent models? Much less those a third its price physically over recent years, dji’s pioneered and focused exclusively on the folding design of their mavic lineup. But this aircraft departs from that design. Instead, it sports a traditional, fixed wing, quadcopter design with a sleek void, gray, finish accentuated with a clear plastic housing and dji is concentrated on aerodynamics, namely propulsion. Wind resistance and battery life. They’Ve also installed a large capacity battery at the rear, making the entire fuselage angle downwards about 30 degrees. Lastly, in the center you’ll find the camera mounted on a single axis gimbal, which is arguably delicate, given the rough nature of fpv acrobatics, but it’s in a suitable location. Nonetheless, that will not likely damage easily, otherwise, the aircraft weighs 795 grams with the battery installed, making it marginally lighter than the mavic 2 pro and compared to most fpv drones, it’s slightly heavier, though it’s relatively small and compact, and it broadly matches the air 2. In this regard, however, the fixed wing design, wide stance and upright body make it appear larger than it is, and also doesn’t help in its general portability in its design. The key is, it comes pre, assembled and ready to fly out of the box. Most consumer fue drones are typically separate purchases where you find elements of the kits from various manufacturers, and pilots then have to combine multiple elements to create the final product.
Often this requires in depth knowledge of parts assembly and soldering. Instead, dji is focused on simplicity. Now, there’s no need to build the drone yourself perform calibrations or understand frequency transmissions. Thus it becomes the first truly plug and play entry into this particular segment in this particular space and it’s action ready from the get go as such it’s, more beginner friendly. In this regard, and now fpv is not the exclusive lore to only professional pilots, so it also becomes a stark contrast to the standards in this segment. Even so, dji’s made the design modular, so pilots can replace various components when needed. These include the gimbal camera landing gear and the drone’s top shell. So if damages occur, you can quickly repair the device in these areas as needed. Otherwise it features a built in micro, sd card slot. It has an auxiliary bottom light. It features color, customizable, front leds and aircraft arm lights and the combo kit comes with an extra housing and propellers. It features a 12 megapixel one over 2.3 inch, cmos sensor which is similar to the mavic mini 2, and it shoots 4k 60 frames per second or 1080p 120 frames per second video to the mp4 or mov formats, via either h.264 or h.265 compression at a maximum Data rate of 120 megabits per second, while for stills, the camera produces 12 megapixel jpeg images. The drone also features a 14.6 millimeter equivalent lens, with an f 2.8 aperture, providing an ultra wide 150 degree field of view which matches a grow pro, but it does have a fish eye effect.
Thankfully, you can add distortion correction via the menus, which removes its impact and dji’s enabled this option by default. This camera configuration is also stabilized on the tilt or vertical axis, while it has an electronically stabilized roll access with dji’s rock steady stabilization taken from the osmo action, and the camera also obtains the d city profile, which shoots flatter videos that offer more flexibility for post Processing for battery it features a 2 000 milliamp hour, intelligent flight battery and dji rates, the drone to provide up to 20 minutes of flight time at 25 miles per hour in windlass conditions. Sure this seems relatively short if you’re familiar with their mavic lineup but it’s. The opposite, typical fpv drones only offer three to ten minutes per flight depending on their size. As such, this is a substantial improvement over the competition, and this becomes a key selling point over its rivals when it comes to packages for this particular drone, you have several options. You can get this drone alone without any controllers, or you can opt for a combo package, but for this particular release, we’d recommend getting the combo in this case, as it will be more cost effective and the accessories dji manufacturers for this drone are necessities. So a combo is unfortunately, the only way to go here with the combo you’ll get the new fpv goggles and the updated flight controller. Dji has also created an optional motion controller, which is a paid for accessory.
The v2 goggles first introduced in 2020 now feature occusync 3.0 connectivity, dji’s proprietary transmission system. It also has built in high gain antennas, comprising of three transmitters and four receivers combined. The drone can transmit a clear hd video transmission up to 6.2 miles away and version 3 of this interface also reduces the transmission latency, which is now 28 milliseconds. Additionally, it also provides a higher bit rate of 50 megabits per second during flight. The drone also automatically switches between 2.4 and 5.8 gigahertz bands, ensuring that bitrate remains consistent and the image transmission technology here is a key selling point over rivals as most use analog transmission, which doesn’t support similarly long distances or ranges at such quality. Otherwise, the goggles have dual 2 inch screens each with a resolution of 810p for a large crystal clear video feed that’s entirely stutter free. It also has buttons on the top right plate to navigate the menu change, the camera or flight settings and start recordings and there’s. Also, a micro sd card, ensuring you retain footage, even if the drone is lost during an accident. The second accessory is the fpv flight controller. This one is new and it’s more compact than the mavic range and it’s about half the size of most controllers in the segment. Even so previous dji pilots will find that it follows a broadly similar design. The main difference is that it removes the cradle for the smartphone and instead djs added more shoulder buttons.
So now it provides immediate access to all key features like return home, gimbal pitch flight modes, emergency brake and hover, which is new, a customizable button and a shutter release, and all of these buttons are large and easily accessible by feel alone. The controller also features a cubby to store the control sticks when not in use. Lastly, you can also get the optional motion controller that resembles a flight joystick, but this controller lets you fly the drone by merely moving your hand around the air and it gives the aircraft maneuvering abilities that mimic your natural hand, motions it’s, quite an innovative product to The market and a first from dji, but it brings a new experience to flying and it’s a good option for beginners in the air. The fpv is relatively easy to fly and quite reassuring, even in four seven wins of 30 miles per hour and is surely a notable upgrade from traditional jones, which are self built, unwildly and easy to crash in this regard. Dji’S leverage their existing expertise from the mavic lineup to produce this particular product and it’s, ready to fly for beginners and professional pilots right out of the box. No insulation or soldering needed merely charge up everything and you’re ready to hit the skies and in the sky. This drone is agile, responsive and insanely fast. The first person view is also uniquely immersive compared to traditional drones, but outside of that, this drone also features the viewfinder mark, which marks your launch point at all times, with a bright h on screen dji’s equipped.
The drone with an emergency safety mechanism called emergency brake and hover, which stops the drone’s motion and hovers with a single button. Press and they’ve also included some automatic return home features. The drone also has forward and downward facing optical avoidance, sensors. It has adsb technology and it features the new audience mode for the goggles in the end, dji’s fpv represents an exciting release that solves many of the critical headaches with fpg flying, namely it offers longer flight times superior video transmission and gradual difficulty levels. All in a complete ready to flight system and it’s quite an interesting option for those wanting to experience fpv without the headaches and steep learning curve, often involved. Now you can share in this world for yourself without the discouragement of learning mechanical skills, but ultimately the dji fpv is a niche product and sure it brings much of the user friendliness from their mavic lineup to a new space, but it doesn’t match this lineup in General features build quality and value for money, so whether it’s a good option for your workflow will likely depend on whether the convenience in fpv is worth it to you. But with that said, though, it’s an excellent release as a first generation product, and it does solve many of the key headaches involved with this style of flying so good on dji for moving into a new space and reinventing the wheel in this regard. So there you have it my friends.
