The DJI Avata 2 FPV Drone is Better, Lighter, and More Affordable

It has been two years since DJI announced its first FPV drone, and it has made the Avata 2 official with several upgrades and a lower price tag–which is a rare case for any new tech product.

The main highlight of the Avata 2 is its new 12-megapixel, 1/1.3-inch sensor that has a wider dynamic range and better low-light performance. The lens used gives you a 155-degree POV, while the sensor can do HDR videos at 4K60 and slow motion footage at 2.7K 120FPS.

DJI also managed to improve the Avata 2’s flight time to 23 minutes, which is 5 minutes longer than the original Avata, along with support for USB-PD for fast charging. The gimbal has five more degrees of tilt for better FPV footage options and a maximum video transmission distance of 13km (3km more than the OG Avata).

As for the drone itself, the Avata 2 is 18g lighter and has a frame that is 16mm shorter and 32mm wider to make it more stable. Accompanying the Avata 2 is the new Goggles 3, which allows you to see what the drone sees while it is in flight. It can send the live feed from the drone to the accompanying DJI Fly app and transmit it to another device up to 5 meters away. The Goggles 3 has a battery that’s rated for an hour of use, along with GPS and two 1080F, 700nit micro-OLED displays.

There’s no official local pricing for the DJI Avata 2 yet, but US pricing starts at $999(~Php 57k). That package includes DJI Avata 2 with DJI Goggles 3 and DJI RC Motion 3. Adding two additional batteries, a Two-Way Charging Hub, and a sling bag is a $200(~Php 12k) premium, while the FPV remote controller is $199(~Php 12k).
