The new DJI Avata is a small but advanced FPV drone characterized by its flexibility and camera quality. It is designed to offer an immersive and “almost extracorporeal FPV flight” experience. It also has advanced safety and flight functions, not to mention that it is accompanied by the new DJI Goggles 2 glasses , which are essential as it is a drone with first-person flight.
The DJI Avata is the company’s second FPV drone and is therefore best used with the DJI motion controller and DJI Goggles 2 . It is capable of flying indoors and is intended for both recreational and professional use.
Just by seeing it we know that it is a special drone, exhibiting a peculiar design that protects the propellers with the chassis itself. Curiously, it incorporates a mode called “tortoise”, which is used to turn the drone in case of an accident and land face up. With activating this mode it is possible to resume the flight in a jiffy, at least in theory.
The camera is something really special; It is a 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor with a 48MP resolution and a wide-angle lens that provides a 155° field of view. The interesting thing does not end here, as we are informed that it can film in 4K at 60FPS; as well as 2.7K at 120FPS (with GVP Goggles V2). The latter implies that it supports slow-motion video recording.
In terms of flight, it is worth mentioning that it has GPS, autonomy of 18 minutes and also 3 flight modes, which we explain below:
- Normal: Hover with satellite navigation or lower sensors. It has a top speed of 8 meters per second.
- Manual: FPV flight with the FPV remote control. It is freer and has a maximum speed of 14 meters per second.
- Sport mode: Similar to manual mode, but with the safety features of normal mode. The maximum speed in this case of 27 meters per second.
DJI Goggles 2
The new DJI Goggles 2 goggles accompany the launch of this drone and bring micro-OLED screens to the table that allow you to see everything the drone perceives clearly and with low latency. In this sense, they have a range of 10 kilometers and are connected to the drone through the DJI O3+ transmission system, which provides video in 1080p at 100FPS and with a bitrate of 50MBPS.
