The drone market is growing rapidly with the involvement of different startups in this sector. Not only for entertainment purposes, for military applications also, drones are used nowadays with great success. Without further ado, let’s delve into the system for today’s topic.
What is DJI Avata?
The DJI avata is a newly launched (August 25th, 2022) fpv (first person view) drone with lots of improved features. It’s the smallest, most portable, and well-equipped FPV drone with a propeller guard. With the help of a propeller guard, Avata can bounce back, stay in the air, and continue flying even if it collides with an object.
One modern camera and IR sensing system are giving It an extra advantages to hover indoors and outdoors without any disruption. With propeller guard, RTH (Return to home) functionality and intelligent hovering techniques it showed exceptional performance in different scenario. To fly this FPV, we need two extra components along with the drone, which are the DJI Goggles 2 and the DJI Motion Controller.
