DJI is going to announce (March 2) its new FPV (First Point View) drone. The drone has leaked already, reveals one of a kind innovation and uniqueness regarding FPV technology. DJI’s goal is to expand the accessibility for FPV to hobbyists, which is a brave move since the FPV market is focused on professionals who know how to build and fly these powerful toys. Anyway, let’s have a glimpse at one of DJI’s most ambitious projects.

The DJI FPV Goggles V2 is already out and we talked about it in detail. It’s pretty similar to the V1 in terms of specs, but it has new features to support the DJI FPV drone (ability to communicate on 2.4GHz – more reliable signal).
DJI’s FPV system is no doubt currently the best in the FPV industry, you won’t find a better system with similar capabilities. You can have a look at my review of the DJI FPV system, because V1 and V2 are quite similar.
Now let’s talk about the DJI remote V2. They completely redesigned it and it now has the shape of a gaming controller in a much compact form factor, similar to the Lite Radio 2 but obviously in much high quality.
Out of the box, both sticks actually re-center including the throttle stick. This is because the DJI FPV drone is capable of GPS-assisted flight mode just like a Mavic. But it also can do acro mode, and you can remove the automatic re-centering of the throttle stick (simply by adjusting a screw on the back of the radio).
The DJI FPV remote controller V2 is powered by an 1S 2600mAh battery, and it can be charged via the USB-C port. Battery life is about 9 hours per full charge.
There’s a rumour that you can also use this motion controller in the future instead of the traditional 2-stick remote. We are still waiting patiently on more info regarding this new remote, but they promise a more natural and intuitive connection between the pilot and the drone, makes it easy to learn and fly.
The DJI FPV Drone will be a pre-built, ready to fly model. It weighs 795g, which is considered quite heavy for DIY FPV drones standard. Normally a 5″ DIY FPV drone carrying a GoPro would be around 600g-700g range.
However it has onboard video recording capability up to 4K 60FPS – much higher than the DJI FPV Air Unit’s 1080 60FPS. Not to mention the built-in 2-axis camera gimbal for smooth videos, something you’d only find on a camera drone.
It doesn’t look like it can be easily repaired either like our DIY FPV drones. This can potentially make every crash expensive and time consuming if we had to contact DJI Repair center every time it breaks. Ultimately it could change the way you fly – being extremely careful and not pushing your limit.
