DJI Announces the Avata FPV Drone08/25/2022
DJI is expanding its family of drones with the recently announced DJI Avata. The Avata, an FPV (first-person view) drone, works in tandem with the new DJI Goggles 2 and DJI Motion Controller to provide a completely immersive flight experience. Those on the market for a lightweight, efficient, and precise drone that can capture beautiful images and steady video should look no further than the Avata.
Designed with built-in propeller guards, the Avata can bounce back, stay in the air, and keep on flying, even if it encounters an object. The drone is compact, lightweight, and is great for flying with precision, even in tight indoor spaces.
The Avata is equipped with a 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor and supports 4K ultra-wide-angle recording with an f/2.8 aperture. With high-grade imaging performance, it delivers exceptional visuals that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
For even greater safety, the Avata also has downward binocular vision and ToF infrared sensing. These sensors detect obstacles below and allow the Avata to fly at low altitudes or indoors.
The Avata features a super-wide 155° field of vision. On the software side of things, RockSteady 2.0 and HorizonSteady help reduce camera shake to ensure smooth video capture. The new design of the Avata optimizes power efficiency and allows for a flight time of up to 18 minutes.
Several improvements have been made to the DJI Goggles 2, which are now smaller and lighter than the previous version. They are also equipped with a Micro-OLED screen with a 100 Hz refresh rate so you can experience outstanding clarity and visual fidelity as you navigate the sky.
The DJI Goggles 2 boast diopter adjustment from +2.0 D to -8.0 D for optimized viewing and comfort. With two-hour battery life and super-fast charging speeds, you are always ready for immersive flight. The foldable antenna and lightweight design make them easy to store, comfortable to wear, and suitable for long-term use.
With the DJI Motion Controller, intuitive flight is in your hands. Squeeze the trigger and bolt forward or turn a corner with the swivel of your wrist. The controls are easy to use and provide a unique way to fly. It also features an Emergency Brake button that lets you stop on a dime, and support for RTH when the battery is low or the signal is interrupted.
