To Know:

Paving the way with its new FPV drone, DJI aims to soar high with its on-brand path to epicness for its people. This drone is explicitly sold in a bundle with goggles and a controller for a whopping $1,299. Overall, we're stoked about how easy it is to get started flying, holds a great battery life compared to others on the market, and reliably syncs to the controls. I would mention that, while it's fast and furious with a mean grip on FPV culture under DJI loyalty, the camera could be a tad better for this price point.

What We Love:

Immersive Flying Experience

Like a video game, except real life.

150° Super-Wide Angle

Capture your dream-like vision with an extreme wide angle.

Emergency Brake Hover

So fools and amateurs like me can pilot with no worries.

The Details:

Brand: DJI

Price: $1,299.00

Product Type: FPV Drone

Best For: Wild creatives looking for an immersive flying experience to receive “wow” footage at either the professional or beginner level.

This bad boy is totally a new breed of drone. The First-Person View (FPV) offer a sleek and aerodynamic motion while delivering powerful propulsion, battery life, and wind resistance. It stands out in more ways than one; by sporting front LEDs and aircraft arm lights with customizable-color, DJI FPV allows pilots to make their aircraft unique and untethered. Feel the thrill of immersive flight provided by the DJI FPV Goggles V2 and DJI FPV's super-wide 150° FOV.

Whether you're a seasoned FPV pilot or a complete beginner, DJI FPV offers three intuitive flight modes that let anyone fly confidently from day one:

  • S Mode - Get the dynamic look of FPV footage easily in S mode. This hybrid flight mode combines the freedom of flying manually with the simplified controls of previous DJI drones.
  • N Mode - Ideal for new users, N mode offers immersive flight with traditional drone flight controls along with DJI safety features like obstacle sensing.
  • M Mode - Fly in M mode for complete, limitless control and the full FPV flight experience. Customize parameters and enjoy flight and footage unlike anything else.

Of course, there's an emergency brake hover! Even for experts, manual FPV flight can be highly cumbersome. Press this button on the remote controller while flying in any mode, at any speed, and the aircraft will stop and suspend stably within only a few seconds notice.

Hard-earned skills are the masterminds behind this piece of tech. You can whirl through trees and duck underneath soccer scores all you want as a mature, but nothing compares to practice and flight skill. Luckily, there are advanced safety features — including an auxiliary bottom light, Smart Return to Home (RTH), Low Battery RTH, and forward and downward obstacle sensing are all integrated into DJI FPV to help ensure a safe flight, even at high speeds. Powerful propulsion capabilities combined with a 150° super-wide FOV provide an unrivaled view. There’s a 4x Slow Motion mode, RockSteady stabilization, and distortion correction give pilots even smoother, more dramatic results.

The gimbal camera, landing gear, and top shell of the DJI FPV aircraft are all modular and easily replaceable, making repairs more convenient. That’s a great thing to note if you so happen to crash or injure the drone. I’d suggest using the DJI virtual flight app to you to practice flying in virtual scenarios before entering the real world and making a mistake. This was my personal first time ever using this kind of drone product, so I’d test it all out before making the final plunge.

What’s pretty rad is you can actually bring someone “along for the ride”. Just set other DJI FPV Goggles V2 units to your aircraft channel and you’re ready to share the view from above!

In Detail:

Bottom line: it captures absolutely unreal footage. The DJI FPV aircraft can record 4K/60fps video at up to 120 Mbps, capturing crisp details that make footage look as exhilarating as the flight over. No matter how dynamic your maneuvers get, RockSteady EIS technology ensures your footage is ultra-smooth. Additionally, the DJI Transmission System was adapted to match the unique needs of DJ FPV. Enjoy crystal-clear real-time video transmission, even at distances of up to 10 km. It supports auto-switching between 2.4 and 5.8GHz frequencies and provides a video transmission bitrate of up to 50 Mbps, significantly reducing stutter and compression artifacts. High-gain antennas on the aircraft include three transmitters and four receivers to enhance signal, resulting in a stable, reliable video feed. It also gives users an additional layer of safety with built-in Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B). This system receives flight location information of manned aircraft in your area and will send warnings on the Goggles V2, providing enough time to avoid any manned aircraft nearby.
