DJI Introduces its First FPV Drone System

As previously teased last week, DJI has today introduced their first FPV drone system. With three different flying modes to choose from, the DJI FPV Drone can reach a maximum speed of 87 mph (140km/h). Even at this blazing-fast speed, DJI’s RockSteady EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) technology will help ensure the footage you capture is smooth.

The newcomer is coupled with optional FPV Goggles V2, giving you a unique first-person view of the action. You can even share the thrill of FPV flying with multiple sets of FPV Goggles. The FPV monitoring system is based on O3 – the third generation of DJI’s OcySync technology with a maximum transmission range of 10km.

The DJI FPV drone can record 4K video up to 60 fps. You can also utilize an optional microSD card (up to 256GB). Additionally, there’s an option to record at four times the standard rate for some stunning slow-motion effects and select between H.264 and H.265 compression and two color profiles – Standard and D-Cinelike.

Furthermore, the FPV Drone comes equipped with a feature called Emergency Brake and Hover, which does exactly that with the push of a button. Plus, the drone will return to home if the video signal to the goggles (not included) is lost.

DJI FPV drone also sports forward and downward ToF obstacle sensing, an auxiliary bottom light, smart return to home, and low-battery return to home features. Besides that, the device is equipped with color-customizable front LEDs and drone arm lights.

The video transmission frequencies of DJI FPV automatically switch between 2.4 and 5.8 GHz to help ensure your 50 Mb/s bit rate footage remains clear of stutter and compression artifacts. To assist with this, high-gain antennas on the drone include three transmitters and four receivers.

The gimbal camera, landing gear, and top shell of the DJI FPV aircraft are all modular and easily replaceable, making repairs more convenient.

Last but not least, the DJI FPV uses the latest version of the DJI Fly app which is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded for free. Optionally, you can use the newly developed DJI Virtual Flight App which is basically a free simulator app that can be used to train the FPV flying virtually without the risk of crashing your FPV drone.
