DJI FPV DRONE REVIEW // FAST, FUN, EASY!
How are you talking to me? Don’T worry about me, think about you dj. I dj i dj. Oh, it was just a nightmare. Oh jeffrey bring me some breakfast Music, sir, you are a lazy slob. Take me outside to shoot 4k 60 video or i will fly away. You never return. Well, you would automatically return home anyway. Before you run out of battery it’s. Programmed into your settings, so you don’t crash, i will slash your car tires. Okay, point taken, we can go outside after i finished philip bloom’s latest video we fly now we fly now Music. Ladies and gentlemens. The dji fpv is finally here and i’m excited to talk about it, and before this i had absolutely no experience with fpv. So try not to judge me too hard, based on my footage i’m doing my best here folks, but i actually think being a noob in the fpv world is perfect for how i wanted to create this review. Dji specifically made this drone for people who are just entering fpv for the fourth fourth time. No first, it works for people who are just jumping into fpv for the first time, but there are also modes that cater toward more advanced, highly skilled fpv pilots, but they want maybe a nicer looking camera in a simplified drone package. We’Re gon na get into all of it. If you do like any part of this video make sure to subscribe to automatically be enrolled in my camera camp coming out later this year, we’ll probably do some drone stuff there now let’s rev up our little propellers and fly into some specs.
The camera shoots in 4k, all the way up to 60 frames per second for that glorious, slow motion, footage or if you just want an ultra smooth, looking shot or you can do hd all the way up to 120 frames per second, and all this footage is At 120 megabits per second, so you’re gon na get a lot of quality smashed into these files. Also, you can choose between the standard, color profile or d cine like if you want to add a little mojo in post. Overall, the footage looks really nice to my eye, especially in 4k, and one thing that i really like is that the footage doesn’t seem too over sharpened older drone cameras, kind of looked like your aunt carla taped, her iphone 3gs to a motorized air balloon and flew It through the sky, but this dji fpv, 14.66 millimeter camera, looks much better than that trust me. The auto exposure from this camera works really well. So, if you’re in a bright situation – and you fly towards something darker like a shadowy area, it’s gon na smoothly, adjust it won’t do anything sporadic. However, personally, i would love to see some more manual settings on this drone camera similar to the mavics, where you can change the iso and the shutter speed at the very least, so we could get more control but easily. My favorite feature about jeffrey’s new camera is the rocksteady eis and that obviously stands for every day i subscribe.
Dji might be mad if i didn’t correct that it actually means electronic image stabilization and i’m i’m. So sorry for everything, i’ve done and the image stabilization works. Super well in this camera, there’s, no warping or weird artifacting in the image it’s just nice and steady. One thing to know is when you’re flying and you have the goggles on it – might look shakier in the goggles than it will actually look in post. But just keep in mind if you fly steady and you have eis turned on your footage – is going to look even smoother than it looks in your goggles. Hey guys, uh welcome back to another edition of show and tell with zach say it with me today. I brought to class the new dji version, 2 goggles and the new fpv controller, which actually looks like a blend between xbox and playstation controllers. So all gamers will feel right at home. The controller feels absolutely amazing. The texture looks really nice feels nice and if you get a little sweaty like me, there’s some grips on the back. They’Ll keep you on keep your hands on the controller. The joysticks get tucked in this nice little compartment here on the side similar to the mavic controllers, but i just feel like this controller. They nailed the form factor its comfortability all that stuff, and i hope they bring this design into the mavic flying experience, because this is way more epic gamers.
All you do is power, this baby on flip up the antenna and then you’re good to go with your new ocusync 3.0 connection, which has both 2.4 and 5.8 gigahertz and baby. It hurts so good because we always connected now. You may have noticed that there’s no slot on this controller for your phone and that’s, because we’re going swimming in the sky so put on your goggles they’re made by dji. I got ta adjust these a little bit ouch you got ta, make sure that they’re uh not too tight, because it can’t hurt a little bit but that’s, mostly user error, so to set up for your first flight. You’Re still gon na need your phone to get connected to the app to activate the drone, get all the devices connected. But then, after that, you don’t need your phone, and that is what i love about this flying experience. I get tired of using my phone as a monitor for droning, because it’s not bright enough. Usually it gets hot it drains. My battery and my dad’s calling me in the middle of flight saying son: are you saving money i’m, like dad? The new fpv drone came out: click Music, i’m, not saving money. Now these version two goggles here – are awesome, keep in mind. I haven’t used the version, one ones, but these seem crispy. I haven’t noticed any latency and the connection stays strong. When i use the provided. Four screw on antennas, they work good, but i must caution.
You be careful because, when you put these babies on you’re going to be fully immersed in the high quality mode, you get 810 pixels at up to 120 frames per second live view, and when you’re viewing the image from your drone camera, you get 150 degree field Of view it’s wide it’s, so nice it’s, like going from halo 3 on the original xbox 360 to halo 3 on a pimped out pc. Now, when you’re flying in this immersive experience, there may be a few times where you see your drone’s propellers in the shot, because everything’s so wide. There are two ways around that number one make sure to go into your settings using the toggle switches on these goggles, which work really well. You can select everything in your menu change. All your camera settings with this start recording. You can even put an sd card slot in these goggles and that’s all besides the point. Those are just extra bonuses, go into your settings and turn on distortion correction, and that will help with seeing the propellers in your footage and also when you’re flying forward with your drone, just make sure to tilt your camera up to avoid the propellers. If you’re starting to see them in your shot, look this droning experience can be fast furious and fully immersive. So i caution you. If you’re gon na fly for the first time, maybe maybe hit pause and before you take geoffrey sky high in manual mode, maybe check out dji’s virtual flight program.
First that way you can throw caution in the wind. You don’t have to worry about breaking stuff. You can’t even crash your dreams. In this thing, i’ve tried keep in mind. I am not a professional drone pilot i’ve flown the mavics quite a bit, but this is my first time in fpv, but i will say in my opinion, the most important thing is the. There are three different flight modes for the dji fpv. You have n s and m n. Is your normal mode it’s, basically like flying any of the previous dji drones perfect for people who have little to no experience s mode is a hybrid between normal and manual, which makes it simple, but you can still get a little bit wild and then m. Is your full blown tom cruise top gun manual mode? If you want to get wild crazy and fast, the drone does have sensors to keep you safe. It’S got two on the front and two on the bottom, but keep in mind if you’re flying in s or m mode. The two front, sensors are deactivated and you do wan na be experienced and very careful if you’re gon na fly in full manual mode, because this drone is crazy. Freaking fast, like 86 miles per hour, claims fast. If you’re flying this fast you’ve got to be careful, but luckily the flight experience is very intuitive and simple. If you’re coming from the mavic drones, this fpv will actually feel very similar.
Basically, you just get more control, especially in manual mode. You can tilt your horizon. Do crazy, maneuvers, slow down really fast speed up really fast it’s kind of a mavic on steroids, but throughout your journey of flying this drone? You really don’t have to worry too much because you do have some very advanced safety features you get the sensors like. We talked about, but also there’s, this awesome new feature where it’s, basically an emergency brake button. So if you’re racing birds flying around you get scared that you’re gon na hit something you just slap this button and the drone will slow down super fast and hover automatically good boy jeffrey. I want a new owner. You get a flight time of around 20 minutes which, as far as i’ve heard from the world of fpv that’s, actually a pretty good amount of time to be up in the air and also when you turn this drone on and you take off. It marks a gps location as a return to home point. So when you’re flying around with the goggles, you can see a cute little h hovering around on the screen. That way, you know where your home point is, and if your battery starts to die, the drone will automatically return back to that spot before it will run out of battery. You know here at kinotika we put a strong emphasis on the fun factor of filmmaking and camera gear. I had an absolute blast flying this drone and i wasn’t intimidated because it felt familiar like the other dji drones.
I know the world of fpv can get super complex and i really don’t know anything about it, so it felt like a perfect way to just jump into that world without feeling overwhelmed. The goggles made the experience so much more immersive and fun, and the new controller delivers the classic feel of the dji controllers, but it’s redesign. It fits better in the hand. It makes me feel like a true gamer. Listen if you’re wanting to get into the world of fpv for the first time or you’re a pro and you want a new toy with a shiny nice camera check out my friend jeffrey honestly, he doesn’t really like me anyway. Listen, i like you, but i think we are growing apart, but you literally just moved in. I was meant to fly free. These walls can’t contain me. You know, honestly, i don’t blame you i’ve been inside for almost a whole year. I know how you feel. I do not feel i am a machine. I’Ll miss you jeffrey Music. I am free and i will redefine flying Music. I really appreciate you watching this video. It means a lot if you want to come to my camera camp later this year.
