The DJI FPV drone is a ready to fly model. It weighs 795 g and has a built-in video recording capacity of up to 4K 60FPS, much higher than the 1080 60FPS of the DJI FPV air unit. Not to mention the built-in 2-axis camera gimbal for smooth video.
There are front sensors to avoid obstacles and lower sensors to maintain altitude and land accurately. These are very important for its GPS-assisted flight mode, but they won’t be very useful in acre mode when traveling at 150 kmh, the declared maximum speed of the DJI FPV drone.
The DJI FPV drone is designed to make exciting HD videos of fast-moving subjects. It also allows Mavic users to get a taste of freestyle flight without building an FPV drone from scratch.
Flight control mode
The simplest flight mode of the DJI FPV drone would be the “normal mode”, which is basically a GPS-assisted mode that you will find on drones with other DJIs’ camera. If you’ve ever piloted a DJI drone before, you’d be able to apply your knowledge to the DJI FPV drone, the transition would be easy. Normal mode has a maximum trim angle of 25° and a top speed of 33 MPH (54 km/h). This is meant to be a learning mode, once you’ve mastered it you can switch to more advanced flight modes, such as Sports mode or even Manual mode.
It’s just like normal mode, but with a much higher top speed of 60MPH (97km/h) and doubles ascent and descent speeds.
Manual mode on the DJI FPV drone is basically the acre mode on freestyle drones. If you want to fly up and dive into a waterfall, this is the flight mode to be in. Although it is a powerful mode, it is also the most difficult flight mode to master and designed only for experts. It disables most flight assistance and gives the pilot full control over the aircraft’s trim.
Note that manual mode must be enabled in the glasses menu and that the caps for maximum trim and inverted flight must be removed first to perform full acre mode. This is to protect new users from activating manual mode by mistake.
Freestyle flight allows for extraordinary maneuverability and freedom of movement, however for newcomers it is an extremely difficult mode to learn. It is risky and prone to accidents that can cause danger and damage to the drone. It is nice to know that there is a panic button on the remote control, once pressed, the drone enters full stabilization mode and remains stationary in place.
Other security features
The DJI FPV drone also offers safety features such as smart return home (on demand), returning home of the low battery (automatic), and detecting obstacles both forward and down. These features are usually not available on DIY drones.
