DJI has launched the new DJI FPV Racing Drone with a bunch of new features, new control mechanics, and a first-person viewing experience just like VR. This new drone was just launched and here is the complete break-down.
The DJI FPV is a racing drone by DJI and it’s the first drone to feature a First-Person Hybrid viewing experience. It is a powerful drone that can go from 0 – 100 KPH in just 2 seconds! That is insane. The motors inside this are so powerful that they can send this drone up to a maximum speed of 140 KPH. The cherry on top of this model is the VR Goggles which get this to a whole new level.
DJI FPV Goggles V2
These are the goggles that are used to enjoy the drone in First-Person. The goggles have two modes that you can use to enjoy. It offers a 10km transmission range, auto-switching dual-frequencies, a high bitrate of 50 Mpbs, and anti-interference methods to ensure a reliable feed.
1. Low-latency mode
In this mode, the pilots get a very low latency feed from the drone less than 28ms. The pilots will get a resolution of 1440×810p at 120 fps with a 142° FOV, or 100 fps at 150° FOV.
2. High-Quality mode
In this mode, pilots get a resolution of 1440×810 at 60fps with 142° FoV or 50fps with 150° FoV. The latency in this mode is less than 40ms.
3. Audience Mode
In this mode, up to 8 goggles can be connected at once to the drone so that your experience can be shared with others.
The DJI FPV drone includes one of the best drone camera systems, It has an integrated 4K/60fps 120 Mbps camera which is on a single-axis gimbal, providing stability during intricate maneuvers while it can also rotate vertically for getting unique angles.
Additionally, “RockSteady” stabilization technology is said to smooth the footage and eliminate the stutter effect when filming fast-moving scenes. Pilots can record footage in 4x Slow Motion in 1080p and 120 fps. Footage can now be stored in H.265 or H.264 (HEVC) which uses less space.
This drone comes 3 with different flight modes for different pilots. The modes can be adjusted according to the person’s skills so that they do not feel difficulty. The 3 modes are;
1. Normal Mode
In this mode, DJI FPV operates similarly to other DJI drones, hovering in one place with the use of GPS and/or visual positioning systems. This is a mode for beginners so this mode enables obstacle detection sensors on the front to warn when obstacles are near and slow down automatically.
2. Manual Mode
This mode is for the more experienced users because you take full control of all the systems of the drone and use it as you wish.
3. Sports Mode
It is a mix of the other two modes. Here you can control the drone to use its features to the max while having some of the safety features on so that you can be warned about obstacles. ABS is optional in this mode.
This drone has a number of safety features like obstacle detection that it can detect obstacles in its path through sensors and warn the pilot. The Remote Controllers also have dedicated buttons for emergency braking or to call the drone back if lost and while using that feature, an ADB-S receiver will also warn pilots of any drones or helicopters in the vicinity.
DJI FPV can be purchased in several options. The standard DJI FPV Combo includes the FPV drone, 2 remote controllers, a pair of FPV Goggles V2, and one battery for the price of $1,299. The DJI FPV Fly More Kit includes two additional Intelligent Flight Batteries and a dedicated charging hub for the price of $299. The optional Motion Controller is sold separately and can be purchased for the price of $199 which enables the pilot to control the drone by hand gestures.
