Review: DJI Avata
Remote Controller 2: A Great Companion
After personally testing them, I can confidently say that DJI Avata drones are better than the Googles 2. I also got the Remote Controller 2, which is an excellent device. It is a very good remote control for the drone. Speaking of the drone itself, it is great, except when there is a fatal crash, which can be a bit complicated. However, overall, the drone is easy to handle, especially for someone like me who is new to FPV.
Additional Batteries for Longer Flight Time
When purchasing the DJI Avata, I highly recommend getting the flymore pack, which includes the remote controller and two additional batteries. It may cost around $230, but if you only have one battery, it can be quite limiting as you won’t be able to fly for long. With the flymore pack and an extra battery, you can expect to have approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of flight time. As a beginner, this is more than enough for me.
System Glitches and Crashes
Although I had a system glitch and crashed my drone, it was due to a bug in the system. This is why I recommend DJI Avata, but not without caution. I will show you the video of the incident so you can see what happened. In the video, you can see that I was in normal mode and decided to ascend to 50 meters to take a photo. However, the drone started veering off to the side and I wasn’t sure what to do. I tried to pause it, but the pause button didn’t respond, and the drone ended up crashing into rocks. Fortunately, DJI replaced it for me.
A Bittersweet Experience
Now, with the new drone, everything works fine. I have tested it thoroughly and have had no issues. However, the previous incident left a bitter taste. After all, the drone cost me around 1600 to 1700 dollars, and while it works, it also has its glitches. It’s a bittersweet experience because I have a functional drone now, but it also reminds me that even expensive drones can have their flaws. Nonetheless, I am satisfied with the DJI Avata overall.
Review of DJI Avata
Improving Confidence and Skills with DJI Avata
After receiving the DJI Avata drone, I initially lacked confidence in using it. However, as time passed, I gained more confidence and found that I could do things much better than before. This increase in confidence has allowed me to explore and experiment with the drone, enhancing my skills in aerial photography and videography.
When considering the price of the DJI Avata, there are two different packages to choose from. The Explorer Combo pack costs around 1269, while the Proview pack is priced at approximately 1450. Additionally, you will need to purchase two SD cards for 50. The ND filters and extra propellers are not necessary, but the pack itself and the remote control are essential. Therefore, the total cost will depend on your specific needs and preferences.
Experience and Recommendation
In my personal opinion, the DJI Avata drone is a good choice. However, if you have prior experience with simulators and are confident in your piloting skills, I would recommend opting for the Explorer Combo pack with the DJI FPV goggles. This combination will provide a smoother flying experience without any technical glitches. Keep in mind that the video quality may not be as high, but it works well for flying purposes.
If you have aspirations for professional videography, like myself, then the DJI Avata is a better option. The image quality and features will greatly enhance your videos. , it ultimately depends on your preferences and specific requirements.
