The FPV has been launched by DJI, a hybrid drone that combines the prospect of a first-person, speed and agility of racing drones with easy use and integrated consumer camera functionality.
The DJI FPV features high performance motors which, at a top speed of 140 km/h, can be used from a standstill in just two seconds. The drone consists of three modes of flight: the Standard mode, designed for new pilots and allowing the drone to float and detect obstacles. The manual mode takes off the exercise wheels with all sensors and the floating device disabled. Finally, a Sports Mode maintains some of the regular mode protection and manual mode control features.
Regardless of the mode in which you are, a DJI FPV feature with a button-pressed emergency brake and hover can always be used in any mode. A Return to Home role enables the drone to fly manually or lose communication back to its home spot. Pilots of any aircraft or helicopters in the region also will be warned by an ADB-S receiver.

The DJI FPV's main feature is the DJI FPV Goggles V2. With auto-switching dual frequencies, 50 Mb/s of bit rate and anti-interference techniques, the drone can send footage up to 10 km away. The pilots will have two viewing modes: the regular HD low-latency mode has a resolution of 1440x810. The latency is less than 40ms in this mode. In Smooth mode the resolution is similar, but with less than 28ms latency you get either 120fps with 142° FoV or 100fps with 150° FoV.
In addition, up to eight glasses can be connected so that more pilot views can be exchanged.
The DJI FPV is fitted with a 4K/60p 120Mbps sensor. 4X slow motion can also be shot at 1080/120p. H.264 or HEVC can store videos. It also provides optical image stabilization from DJI's RockSteady.
The DJI FPV is $1299 and contains a 2, FPV Goggles V2, cable, and one battery remote controller. DJI will also have an autonomous motion controller, allowing the pilot to manipulate the drone with hand gestures, for $199. You can also buy the DJI FPV Fly More Package, which includes two more batteries and a $299 charging centre.
