Should You Buy The All New DJI Avata 2?

The DJI Avata 2

The all new DJI Avata 2 is here. With DJI's latest FPV drone comes a bunch of new improvements compared to its predecessor, the DJI Avata. With improved performance, flight time, payload capacity, intelligent flight modes, and advanced safety features, is it still enough to warrent an upgrade? Lets take a deeper look at the DJI Avata 2.

The DJI Goggles 3

With the release of the Avata 2, DJI has also released the all new DJI Goggles 3. DJI Goggles 3 allow you to experience true immersion with PIP (Picture-In-Picture) view, where the Avata 2 HUD is displayed over the environment around you. This greatly improves operator safety by allowing them to see the environment around them without having to take the DJI Goggles 3 off. 


Video Transmission

With the new Avata 2 also comes DJI's all new Ocusync 4, which is a nice improvement compared to DJI's Ocusync 3.0+. Ocusync 4 comes with a large transmission range upgrade, boasting a 13km range compared to Ocusync 3.0+'s 10km range. DJI O4 now also allows the Avata 2 to stream content at 1080p at up to 100fps where as O3 was able to stream up to 1080p at 30fps.

The all new DJI Avata 2 offers many improvements over the DJI Avata. With improved Goggles, transmission range, flight times, and more, the DJI Avata 2 is certainly worth the upgrade. With a price of $1,199.00 for the DJI Avata 2 Fly More combo, we certainly feel its worth the upgrade. The Prior Avata 2 Explorer combo was sold at $1,278.00 before the price drop, meaning the price of the Avata 2 is now less then the prior entry point of the DJI Avata.
