DJI is announcing the Avata 2, the company’s second FPV flyer and the direct successor to the original Avata, which was launched back in 2022. DJI upgraded its new cinewhoop-style drone with several significant enhancements, including an improved image sensor, longer flight time, and stronger safety features.

Launching alongside the Avata 2 is the Goggles 3 headset, as well as two new controllers and a slew of additional accessories.

Like its predecessor, the Avata 2 is a compact, cinewhoop-style drone designed for first-person flying and video capture. The new FPV flyer features an upgraded 1/1.3" image sensor that can capture 12MP stills and immersive 4K60 HDR videos with 10-bit D-Log support. When flying, pilots can choose between three different fields of view ranging from normal to an ultrawide 155°. The latest versions of DJI’s RockSteady and HorizonSteady algorithms ensure video stabilization.

DJI enriched the Avata 2’s safety features with an improved propeller guard and upgraded positioning system. The updated system uses new fisheye sensors that enable downward and backward visual positioning, greatly enhancing flight stability and safety during flights.

The Avata 2 also received boosts to both its flight time and transmission range. Pilots can now enjoy up to 23 minutes of FPV flying thanks to the Avata 2’s bolstered battery. And with the upgrade from the O3+ transmission system to the O4, the Avata 2 now boasts up to 8.1 miles of maxmium video transmission, which is significantly more than the original Avata’s max range of 6.2 miles.

Along with the hardware and design enhancements, DJI also outfitted the Avata 2 with a new, one-button Easy ACRO mode. Using the RC Motion 3 controller, pilots can execute a number of advanced aerial acrobatics with a single press of a button. One-tap VFX are also possible using the LightCut app, which uses AI to add effects, overlays, text animations, and more.

To experience true first-person view flying, you need an FPV headset with a live, low-latency feed. With DJI’s new Goggles 3 headset, pilots will feel like they’re inside the cockpit thanks to the 1080p at 100 fps live feed displayed on dual micro-OLED displays. An adjustable -6.0 to +2.0 D diopter ensures wide compatibility, and a new Real View PiP feature adds picture-in-picture within the display, so pilots can see their surroundings without having to remove the headset.

New Avata 2 pilots can get both the Goggles 3 and RC Motion 3 in either the 1-battery or 3-battery Fly More Combo bundles from DJI. Outside of having three of the new 23-minute intelligent flight batteries, the 3-battery bundle also includes the recently released sling bag and two-way charging hub.

Additional new accessories for the Avata 2 are also available, including a set of four spare propellers and an ND filter 3-pack to manage exposure.
