DJI recently launched FPV, a hybrid drone that combines First Person Perspective with speed and agility. This drone is indeed quite the same as most products, because it is carried as a high-performance racing drone.
This can be seen from the performance to the ‘sultan’ class features it carries, such as being able to bring a drone from a stationary position, then go up to 100kph in just 2 seconds, while reaching a maximum speed of 140kph.
Then unlike drones in general, the DJI FPV has three flight modes. which is split into normal mode, which is designed for novice pilots and allows the drone to hover over the place and has obstacle detection. Then there’s the manual mode which provides complete control over the flight, with all sensors and hovering / hover functions disabled. Finally, a sport mode that retains some of the safety features of Normal mode and manual control.
But with any mode, the DJI FPV still has an Emergency Brake and Hover system which can also help the drone not hit an object that can damage or even destroy the device.
Then on the side of the image recorder, the DJI FPV has a 4K / 60p 120Mbps camera mounted on the gimbal. You can also record 4X slow motion in 1080 / 120p. Videos can be saved on H.264 or HEVC. It also offers DJI RockSteady digital image stabilization.
Then as a racing drone, DJI also presents the DJI FPV Goggles V2, which can display the drone’s footage from a distance of up to 10 km with a bitrate of 50Mbps.
For those who are interested in this racing drone device, DJI sells it at a price of US $ 1,299 or around Rp.18 million, which includes Remote version 2, FPV Goggles V2, cable, and also one battery.
