The DJI Avata 2, an upgrade to one of the most popular first-person view (FPV) drones, has been unveiled alongside the new DJI Goggles 3 and DJI RC Motion 3. These additions aim to enhance the drone’s control capabilities significantly.

A first-person view (FPV) drone is a type of drone that allows the operator to see what the drone’s camera sees in real-time, as if they were onboard the drone. This immersive experience is achieved using a live video feed transmitted from the drone’s camera to a display, typically goggles or a monitor.

While the original Avata was praised for its straightforward plug-and-play flying experience, the Avata 2 takes it up a notch. It now allows for more intricate maneuvers, boasts improved image quality, and offers an extended flight time.

DJI promotes the Avata 2 with a 23-minute flight duration, a notable increase from its predecessor’s 18 minutes. Moreover, the drone’s video feed can be accessed from a distance of up to 13km, providing a comprehensive view of the surroundings.

Enhancing the visual capabilities, the Avata 2 features a larger 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor, ensuring better image quality, especially in dim lighting. It comes equipped with a wide-angle lens that offers a 155-degree field of view and can capture 4K HDR footage at 60fps. Alternatively, you can opt for recording 120fps slow-motion videos in 2.7K resolution.

The DJI Goggles 3 introduces a passthrough picture-in-picture mode, allowing users to maintain awareness of their surroundings while piloting the drone. Beyond enhanced video transmission and reduced latency, these goggles can also stream footage directly to a smartphone. Their battery life has been extended to three hours from the previous two-hour duration.

The DJI RC Motion 3 controller has undergone a makeover as well, becoming lighter and more compact than its predecessor. It offers intuitive controls, enabling users to perform flips, rolls, and drifts effortlessly with a simple flick of the control stick. Both the updated goggles and controller are compatible with DJI Air 3 and Mini 4 Pro drones.
