This page is dedicated to bringing you the best deals on the DJI Avata drone. The DJI Avata is one of the most talked about drones on the market and it is bringing FPV flying to the masses. As a successor to the DJI FPV (opens in new tab), the DJI Avata builds on the original, with a cinewhoop-style design that can be flown by both amateurs and seasoned FPV professionals.
The DJI Avata comes equipped with a 48MP 1/1.7" CMOS sensor, which supports up to 4K video at 100 fps. This footage is shot with an ultra-wide 155° FOV that mimics how we see with our own eyes for a natural and realistic experience.(opens in new tab)
The footage is stabilized in two ways using RockSteady 2.0 EIS and HorizonSteady EIS. RockSteady EIS works to reduce camera shake, while HorizonSteady locks the Avata's footage to a level horizon. Unlike its predecessor, this drone is more conventional in design than the DJI FPV (opens in new tab), which helps its looks. The ‘whoop’ frame shape, with propellors surrounded by firm guards, is long established in the enthusiast market.
The difference is that a good-quality camera (like a GoPro) needs to be attached afterward if high-end footage is needed. Enthusiasts tend to add one camera (like a GoPro) to record while piloting with another. The latter, the FPV camera, is often analog, though pricey digital alternatives are available (one from DJI).
If you want to fly FPV, and capture amazing footage then getting the soldering iron out and assembling a kit of parts is no longer essential. We also felt the Avata’s camera stabilization system seems to produce much smoother 4K footage than the traditional GoPro piggy-backing on a self-build – it, after all, connected in a way a separate camera is not.
