Press Release: April 29, 2020
DJI has finally introduced FPV drone in to the high-definition era. So far, FPV pilots settled for any low-resolution, fuzzy image that switched into static when signal got weak. Why did all of us use analog? Previous HD FPV systems all disappointed with excessive cost, high latency, hard to rely on link, and poor quality.
The DJI digital high-definition FPV drone product is the first one to really make HD FPV “just work”. Range is one of the just like typical 5.8 GHz analog systems, however in glorious HD resolution. Latency is great at the best and tolerable at worst. Setup and installation are pretty straight forward, particularly with new flight controllers that are equipped for one-plug link with the environment Unit. The goggle screen is big, vibrant, obvious, and colorful. The menus are intuitive and simple to use. Everything concerning the system has got the polish and gratifaction that DJI customers have started to ignore.
The DJI product is legitimately good. But it isn't perfect. Do you know the drawbacks? Over a ultra-premium analog system, the DJI product is little more costly. However a budget analog system you can get in to the air for a small fraction of the cost. The DJI product is larger than an analog system, so setting it up inside a frame could be tricky (see below in this article for frames particularly made to fit the DJI Air Unit).
The greatest caveat when deciding whether or not to purchase the DJI FPV drone product is the way it interacts along with other pilots using traditional analog systems. If you are using DJI goggles, your buddies using analog goggles can’t be careful about your FPV feeds. (You may still receive analog signals utilizing a receiver module and also the DJI goggles’ Audio-video input.) Another drawback would be that the DJI system are only able to show a few of the flight controller’s on-screen-display information. What this means is some important troubleshooting details are unavailable. However, DJI continues to be adding more OSD elements in every firmware update, which means this may change later on.
Everything being stated, the emotional impact of flying in HD is profound. The greater I fly the DJI system, the greater I really like it, and also the harder it's to return to standard-definition analog. Regrettably, this really is impossible to share using a web site or YouTube video. If you can check out the DJI system yourself, get it done. But be cautious, because you will probably find yourself taking out your charge card whenever you didn’t mean to.
