DJI FPV Drone Review

With the FPV Drone, DJI has officially joined the FPV (first-person-view) drone industry.
It’s a great entry-level system for drone pilots who want the immersive flying experience that FPV provides but don’t know much about technical stuff like radio frequencies or how to assemble and solder.
The range it gives, as well as DJI’s RockSteady EIS stabilised gimbal, may appeal to more experienced FPV users.

The DJI Goggles V2 are included with the FPV Drone, and it can be controlled in three modes: Normal, Sport, and Manual.
While in Normal and Sport mode, GPS is turned on, allowing you to hover.
When using these two modes, you can also hit the emergency brake to bring the drone to a complete stop.


You can fly up to 140 km/h in manual mode (87 mph).
An Intelligent Flight battery can keep a drone in the air for up to 20 minutes, which is outstanding for an FPV drone.
The aircraft’s front and bottom are equipped with obstacle avoidance sensors.

The camera is mounted on a 1-axis gimbal and contains a 12MP, 1.23″ sensor with a 14.66mm equivalent lens and a 150o FOV.
It has a RockSteady image stabilisation system and an electronic roll axis.
The camera shoots JPEG photos, however the resolution is limited to 3840×2160, which is the same as 4K video.

Video in 4K/60p or 1080/120p for 4X slow motion can be captured at 120 Mbps using either H.264 or H.265.
Color profiles such as standard and D-Cinelike are available, and video clips can be recorded in either.MP4 or.MOV formats.

The remote controller is comfortable to use and provides quick access to the functions you’ll need.
The O3 transmission system from DJI allows the drone to fly up to a distance of 10 kilometres (6.2 miles).
Up to 810/60p video transmission is possible with the V2 Goggles, and a hand motion controller is provided for a more intuitive flight experience.

For those interested in this sort of flying who don’t want to learn how to build their own setup, DJI’s FPV drone is an excellent out-of-the-box option.
Anyone searching for high-quality images should check into alternative solutions because it’s oriented more toward performance.


It’s also worth mentioning that the four obstacle avoidance sensors are only functional in Normal mode, which restricts the vehicle’s speed to 50 kilometres per hour (31 mph).
Manual mode should only be used once you’ve gotten used to fast FPV flying, and DJI offers a virtual app simulator to help you get familiar with these moves.
If the drone crashes, you’ll almost certainly have to send it in for repairs.

What we like:

  • Out-of-the-box FPV solution
  • GPS and Emergency Brake feature
  • Modes for beginner to advanced pilots

What we don’t:

  • Will need to be sent for repair if crashed
  • Loud for a compact drone
