DJI uses the DJI FPV to re-imagine the experience of flying with drones

DJI Innovations, in partnership with DJI Goggles, has released this first-person drone FPV movie.

The FPV Cinema Drone is equipped with the latest version of the eyeglasses and an optional one-handed joystick.

The company describes it as a hybrid drone that combines film-quality FPV elements and racing drones, but leans more towards the previous category.

The company hopes to simplify the use of drones by rolling out its functionality in movie-quality drones.

DJI's Virtual Flying App should help novices practice before actually starting the actual flight, and it has tutorials to help you set it up.

The FPV Cinema Drone has several skill-based flight modes including the normal mode that makes it work like other DJI planes.

This mode uses GPS and visual positioning system to aid in flight.

An obstacle detection sensor is located at the front of the aircraft. When it gets close to an object, it automatically slows down.

Professional drone pilots can take off with fully disabled flight features and sensors in manual mode.

At the same time, "Sports" mode is located somewhere in between and provides more freedom of movement than "normal" and more safety functions than "manual" mode.

Flight assistance functions include emergency brake and hover buttons, homecoming, take-off and landing functions.

The aircraft has a top speed of 140 kilometers per hour, which means that it is much slower than many competing drones that can fly more than 200 kilometers per hour.

However, the acceleration capacity of the new aircraft is quite high: DJI claims it can travel from 0 to 100 km / h in two seconds and fly for up to 20 minutes on a single charge.

The FPV Cinema Drone has a built-in camera and DJI claims it can record 4K video at 60fps.

The camera uses GoPro's RockSteady stabilization system with a 150 ° field of view.

There is also a slow motion option at 120fps at 1080p, and the camera can offer in H.265 or H.264 to take up less space on the memory card.

For eyeglasses, DJI promises stable signal connectivity, low latency and can work over long distances to view footage in real time.

The plane has a range of 10 kilometers, and the company said: It transmits video at a bit rate of 50 megabits per second and there are many ways to look at the glasses.

In low latency (approx 40ms) mode, you can view real-time subjects at 120 fps at 810 pixels at 142 ° and real-time materials at 50 fps at a viewing angle of 150 °.

Transparent mode supports higher frame rates, but increases latency. There is also a spectator mode where you can attach up to eight additional cups so that a group of people can share the viewpoint of the camera pilot.

The standard package for drones, joysticks, goggles, cables and second-generation batteries costs $ 1,300.

The Fly More kit, which includes two additional batteries and a charging station for long-haul times, costs around $ 300.

The DJI Motion joystick, which can be manipulated based on your hand movements, costs $ 200.
