DJI has announced its newest drone – the FPV, which combines the first-person view and high-speed performance of racing drones, the cinematic camera sweep of traditional drones, the safety and transmission technology from DJI’s leading consumer drones, and an optional single-handed motion controller that lets users control the drone using hand movements.
The DJI FPV Ecosystem is composed of the Drone itself, Goggles, Remote Controller, and a new and intuitive Motion Controller that lets you steer the drone based on the movement of your hand.
A Flight Experience For Every Skill Level
DJI FPV is the first integrated FPV drone that allows pilots from beginners to professionals to choose from multiple flight modes to match their skill level.
Normal (N) Mode: In N mode, the DJI FPV operates like other DJI drones, hovering in place using of GPS and/or visual positioning systems (VPS) on the bottom of the drone. N mode also allows for obstacle detection sensors on the front to be activated to warn when obstacles are near and slow down. Pilots are tasked to maneuver the drone away from any detected obstacles.
Manual (M) Mode: Designed for more experienced users, it allows users to take full control of the drone, with all sensors as well as hovering features disabled.
Sport (S) Mode: A new hybrid of M and N mode, it offers some of the dynamic movement capabilities that come with M mode plus some of the key safety features of N mode, giving pilots more room to explore their skills as they get accustomed to the drone.
While in the air, pilots can use a suite of safety features that make flying not only a memorable experience but a safe one as well. A dedicated Emergency Brake and Hover feature is present in all flying modes. This stops the drone and lets it hover in place anytime during the flight. Obstacle detection sensors can also be activated while operating in N mode, alerting pilots when objects get close and automatically slow down. The Visual Positioning Sensors (VPS), plus the auxiliary light on the bottom, assist in smooth launch and landings.
The Failsafe Return to Home feature will bring the drone back to its home point automatically with a press of a button or when the transmission is lost. The AirSense ADS-B receiver system notifies the pilot when traditional aircraft such as airplanes or helicopters equipped with ADS-B transmitters are nearby.
Immerse Yourself In The Experience of Flying
Using the latest in HD transmission technology, DJI FPV lets pilots see the world in a new way. See a crystal-clear, long-range, low-latency feed from the DJI FPV when wearing the DJI FPV Goggles V2. State-of-the-Art racing motors offer high-speed action when in flight, and the O3 transmission system offers unmatched reliability.
You get a max speed of 140 kps (87 mph) and a max acceleration of 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) in just two seconds. O3 transmission offers a 10 km transmission range, auto-switching dual-frequencies, a 50Mbps bitrate, and advanced anti-interference methods to ensure a reliable feed. Announced in 2019, the DJI HD transmission system brought the world’s first low-latency, HD digital feed to the market.
The new DJI FPV uses that same technology to bring a crystal-clear image to the goggles with ultra-low latency. Pilots can choose from several different viewing options including:
Standard Low-Latency HD Mode: See the world in 1440x810p in either 60 fps with a wider 142° FOV, or 50 fps with 150° FOV. In this mode, latency is as low as ≤ 40 ms.
Smooth Mode: Pilots can achieve high frame rates for a more cinematic look but signal latency is decreased to ≤ 28 ms. Resolution is 1440x810p 120fps with 142° FOV or 100 fps at 150° FOV.
Audience Mode: Share the pilot’s perspective in this mode, which connects up to eight additional Goggles set to the pilot’s view so even onlookers can experience the flight.
Incredible Flight Performance, Breathtaking Footage
Not only does DJI FPV offer incredible flight performance, it can also capture dynamic, cinematic footage. The integrated 4K 60 fps @ 120 Mbps camera is on a single-axis gimbal for stability when doing those intricate maneuvers while rotating vertically for unique angles. RockSteady stabilization technology smooths shaky footage and eliminates the global shutter effect when you’re filming fast moving scenes. Advanced distortion correction software can also remove warped and unappealing fish-eye look commonly present in FPV footage. Pilots can record footage in 4X Slow Motion in 1080p and 120 fps to relieve epic moments in every detail. Footage can now be stored in H.265 or H.264 which uses less space on the memory card while preserving fine details during compression.
Educational Tools And An Updated DJI FLY App To Accelerate Learning
Supported by a wealth of interactive and realistic tools, pilots will be up in the air quickly with confidence. DJI FPV uses the latest version of the DJI Fly App which now includes detailed tutorials on how to operate the DJI FPV. The newly-developed DJI Virtual Flight app is a free simulator that familiarizes new pilots with drone flying movements in an easy, fun, and risk-free environment. It also allows pilots to fly the DJI FPV drone in various settings using the dedicated controller.
