DJI Avata: New FPV drone for beginners

DJI Avata: New FPV drone for beginners

[15:00 Thu,25.August 2022   by ]    

As has been the case for some time suspected, DJI has introduced a new FPV drone called Avata. In contrast to the up to 140 km/h fast DJI FPV, the new model is a so-called CineWhoop (aka CineDrone) drone, i.e. a rather small quadcopter with rotor protection, which by means of display glasses and intuitive motion control enables flight from the first-person perspective by means of its forward-facing camera, which almost feels as if you are flying yourself.

We&ve also had the opportunity to test the Avata ourselves, here&s our test LINK and video:

The new drone is so particularly well-suited for hazard-free indoor shooting, fast aerial racing or shooting daredevil maneuvers - the rotor guard prevents both damage to the propellers and injury to people in the event of a collision. Special flight maneuvers where the smallest distances are important - for example, around obstacles - can be performed more easily by pilots with a first-person view and intuitive control via motion controller than with a drone flown using a classic remote control including an integrated display. The DJI Goggles 2 display goggles and DJI motion controller are also new, but the Avata can also be used with the "old" DJI FPV Remote Control 2 and DJI FPV Goggles V2.

The technology of the DJI Avata

New is housing design, whose cutouts are designed to minimize weight. The new drone weighs 410 grams and can stay in the air for 18 minutes with the help of its 2,480 mAh battery (slightly shorter than the DJI FPV&s flight time of around 20 minutes).

Live images are captured by a 1/1.7" 4K CMOS 48 megapixel sensor (DJI FPV: 1/2.3") through a 155° wide-angle lens with with f/2.8 aperture, whose images are recorded on the one hand in full resolution on the 20 GB internal memory or on up to 256 GB microSD/SDHC/SDXC card (with D-Cinelike color profile if desired) in H.264 or H.265 with up to 4K at 50/60 fps. The live image is also transmitted to the new Goggles 2 for control using the OcuSync 3 (O3) radio transmission system at 2.7K/1080p and up to 100 fps - interestingly, the maximum frame rate when using the "old" FPV Goggles V2 is even higher at 120 fps.

Stabilization is hybrid using a 1-axis gimbal as well as electronically via optional EIS, RockSteady 2.0, which eliminates general image shake, or HorizonSteady, which ensures that the image always stays level with the horizon. Thanks to a new turtle mode, if the Avata accidentally lands upside down, it can automatically re-align itself normally and take off.

A special emergency brake and hover function is available in all flight modes, allowing the drone to stop and hover instantly at any time during flight. The Avata&s maximum speed in manual mode is up to 27 m/s (i.e., about 100 km/h) - making it significantly slower than the 140 km/h DJI FPV unveiled in March 2021.

Flight Safety

Like the first FPV model, DJI&s Air Sense technology can detect the positions of nearby aircraft using the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) signals they emit. The information about aircraft in the vicinity, along with their distances, will be communicated to the drone pilot to help him avoid potential collisions. Other safety features include DJI&s GEO 2.0 geofencing system, which notifies pilots of airspace restrictions and potential hazards to prevent drones from flying near high-risk areas such as airports. Via augmented reality (AR) overlay, the launch point is displayed to the pilot for orientation in the googles. Also on board is a "Return to Home" feature that helps the drone automatically return to the launch point.

DJI Avata

The DJI Avata is equipped with both infrared sensors and downward-facing dual vision sensors that help the drone maintain its current position, hover precisely, fly indoors or in other environments where satellite navigation is not available, and identify surfaces such as bodies of water that are not suitable for landing.

Flight Modes

The DJI Avata allows beginners and professionals to choose from several flight modes to suit their skill level:
- Normal mode (N mode): In N mode, the DJI Avata flies similarly to other DJI drones and hovers using satellite navigation and/or the visual positioning systems (VPS) on the underside of the drone.
- Manual Mode (M Mode) (only with DJI FPV Remote Control 2): M-mode provides complete control and the total FPV flying experience. Experienced pilots can adjust parameters.
- Sport Mode (S Mode): A new hybrid blend of M and N modes, S mode combines the dynamic movement features of M mode and the key safety features of N mode. S mode is the golden mean of the three modes.

DJI Flight Simulator App

Aspiring pilots can use the free DJI Flight Simulator app, to familiarize themselves with basic flight movements in a simple and risk-free environment. The simulator allows pilots to fly the DJI Avata using the remote control in a variety of settings. Additionally, detailed tutorials on how to operate the drone are available in the DJI Fly app, which controls the drone.

New: DJI Goggles V2

Along with the new FPV drone comes a new version of the DJI Goggles introduced, the DJI Goggles V2, which at 290 grams are much lighter and also more compact than the FPV V2 Goggles at 420 grams. The 1080p live images are transmitted with a latency of only 30 ms latency via DJI O3+ over distances of up to 2 km at 50 Mbit/s and displayed on the new Goggles only at 1080p 100 fps (instead of 120 fps of the FPV), but the image quality is better than before thanks to the two up to 700 nits bright 2" Micro-LED displays (instead of the 360 nits bright LCDs of the FPV Goggles V2) with adjustable diopters. Using an intuitive control panel on the side of the goggles, settings can be controlled with just one hand. Live images can be recorded to microSD card in MP4 or MOV format (compressed as H.264 or H.265) - even at higher resolution (4K 50/60 fps) than the goggles themselves can display.

New: DJI Motion Control Unit

The DJI Motion Control Unit is a gyro-based flight control system that allows for precise execution of complex flight maneuvers based on the natural movements of the hand. The system is said by DJI to be so intuitive that even absolute beginner:s can quickly learn to fly with it. DJI first introduced such a controller a year ago with the Motion Controller for the DJI FPV drone.

Price and Versions

The DJI Avata can be purchased now in several configurations - on its own (without remote control, motion control unit or goggles) it costs €579, ideal for those who already have compatible goggles and a remote control. The DJI Avata Pro-View Combo costs €1,429 and includes the DJI Avata along with the new DJI Goggles 2 and the new DJI motion control unit. In contrast, the DJI Avata Fly Smart Combo is slightly cheaper at €1,149 because it includes the old DJI FPV Goggles V2 instead of the new ones. Finally, the DJI Avata Fly More Set costs and includes two DJI Avata Intelligent Flight Batteries and a DJI Avata battery charging station.
