DJI are innovators and constantly deliver exciting new products. They seldom disappoint. Their latest release, the DJI FPV is no exception. As DJI puts it, it “redefines flying”. It is a feature-rich drone with a lot to offer. While many drones offer FPV (First Person View) DJI takes it to a whole new level.

The ready-to-fly drone is perfect for beginners as well as more advanced drone pilots. It boasts a 4k camera with an impressive 60 frames per second (fps). The view available is also astounding with a wide 150° field of view (FOV).

The FPV delivers a truly immersive flying experience and the drones have an excellent 10km range. With super-low latency of 28ms, and a 50 Mbps bitrate, you will not miss a thing.

The drone weighs in at a mere 795g (1.75 lbs.) making it light and nimble. The dimensions are 255×312×127mm including the propellers. The FPV drone has a 1/ 2.3” 12MP CMOS image sensor with a 35mm “equivalent” lens. This gives you 120Mbps video and 4k/60p images.

It uses H.264 and H.265 codecs and a OcuSync 3.0 (O3) transmission platform. It has sensors for obstacle avoidance in front and below the drone and features emergency brake and hover and a return to home (RTH) safety feature. The intuitive motion controller makes it easy and safe to navigate so you can enjoy the experience.

The DJI FPV Drone delivers around 20 minutes of flight time and has an impressive top speed of 140 kph (87 mph).

What is great is that there is no setup required, it is ready to fly as soon as you open it. It also has GPS, something that is lacking on many FPV drones.
